    I gotta say my tacoma's suspension really impressed me today. I live in southern cali, and if you live here, you know there are jacka$$es all over the road. a car pulled out of a mcdonalds driveway as i was driving towards him. he saw me but that f'er still pulled forward. I had to swerve in an instant. i honestly thought, damn my new tacoma is gonna crash right into him and i've only had it for a month. But when i swerved, my tacoma was like a sports car. it was like driving my old dropped honda accord. I gotta say (IMO) the tacoma definitely handles well. The reaction time was smooth. I just had to mention it and give props (do people still use that term?) to the tacoma.
    Not to mention a lot of cali's don't have f'n insurance so if i did hit him, i would of been screwed even with full coverage on mine.

    I don't think that LSD had anything to do with it this time. You'll only see it come into action when your wheels are spinning to accelerate.

    for some reason it feels like the LSD kicks in when i take sharp turns. it feels like the tires changes speed
