    Shit I have to re torque my DMZ kit every time before I head out (German torque wrench Gutt n tight) but that kind of goes with the territory I thought? Put a dab of red lock tight but might need a little more:D.

    Konsta (rctoy) needs to get a set of those motor mounts. His driver's side one cracked at the red line I added.

    This was my 1st run, I was the 5th truck off the line and the 1st whoop section was pretty rough until after the 1st round when it got wore down. I took it slow, the 2nd truck off broke their drive shaft and the 3rd almost got stuck since it was still loose. My 1st run was 52 sec, but by the end I improved to 44 sec. I placed 13th our of 27 after combining the 1st and 2nd run times. Still waiting on a few friends that took some video to upload and send to me.

    Overall it was a great experience and I'm glad TcYota talked me into doing it this year. Looking forward to next year already. We need to have more Tacoma's representing! MadTaco461 was the only other TW member out there yesterday out of 27 street trucks.
