    TIER 3 Films TripleThreat Truck Trials
    I take my truck on trails and offroading but this is something new I have been getting into with my truck. I will post more videos up from each trip I make to the to see what this truck can do performance wise under diffrent conditions and but together a multiple spectrum of what a Toyota can do!

    I will post all Trials on this thread to keep it simple. I will probably need help getting this thing through the different set ups and I will video tape and document with pictures all the mods I come up with and complete to help out fellow tacoma owners on TW.

    I will modify my truck according to the type of trial I do like I am currently fitting a long travel kit on my truck for baja races. I know there are already pictures and videos of these trials including long travel tacomas but I am adding them to my website as a goal to get several different setups preformed with one truck being modified for each set up to show people what this truck can do!

    My goals is to get all of these trials complete and have them all in one place to be shown for all to see what we can do with our toyotas. I will be open to anyone wanting to participate in any of the trials if you are my area.

    I will be taking my truck through multiple trials:
    -Towing Status: Completed
    [​IMG]

    -Heavy Off Roading Status: Standing By

    -Baja Off Road Racing Status: Standing By

    -Auto Cross Status: Standing By

    -Circut Track Racing (Speedway 2.58) Status: Started

    -Drag Racing Status: 75 Percent complete

    Drag Strip first video up!

    (please let me know if there is another type of trial you would like me to try)

    Trials Post and Updates

    I will be taking my truck through multiple trials:
    -Towing
    My truck was able to tow this Toyota Forerunner which my buddy needed towed after buying it due to its drive train.
    Weighed: 4,639 pounds
    For: 3 Hours and 13mins
    Distance: 216 miles
    Towed at an average speed: 55 mph using a two wheel trailer


    Conclusion: Was able to tow 4,500 pound truck for 3 hours which shows what this truck can do! Did not mod my truck at all for this the trans cooler worked its magic and the scan gauge told me the transmission temp and such along the way. No issues! the whole way i'll see if I can do better!

    Had to unlink the driveshaft because of the pump in the rear axle?

    There is no pump in the rear axle. I bet it's an automatic trans, and your buddy was worried about the pump in there. If it's a manual, just throw it in neutral and go. Any 4wd with a neutral position in the t-case can be towed without removing drivelines too. You would be money ahead to buy a racetruck already built and score tagged if you are going to race. Seriously, it's an expensive build and your truck will be barely streetable when you are done.

    This complete truck costs less than my build, and my rig is not race legal.

    It was a manual with full time 4x4 but I guess we might not have had to remove the drivelines I had never heard of that pump getting messed up from not being cooled but both the buyer and seller agreed it needed to be done for the trip. I see RVs with vehicles being towed all the time im sure some of them are manual and automatic as well so I did'nt see a big deal.

    Yeah
    Good Idea I'll shop around and see what I can come up with is that your truck you linked for sale?

    I beat two challengers and it is Supercharged with a dual exaust with an x pipe which has the exhaust going striaght back to the rear it is a true dual exaust no Y pipe or anything. Then some URD upgrades such as the MAF calibrator which I have connected. I had every seat pulled out, glove compartment off, center console safe was removed, and sub woofers basically everything involving weight and I keep the spare tire on my truck :D
    Thier more things I do but it will be a long thread.

    That's not my truck, mine is the black one down there \/. If you are serious about weight loss, click the build thread link. You can lose at least 600 lbs more by ditching the stock seats, bed, and inner fenders.

    You wouldn't happen to have your time slips for your 1/4 mile runs would you? If you ran a 12.7 you are the fastest Tacoma I know of. Are you running NOS perhaps?

    The fastest I know of is SuperWerty's and he ran a 12.93. When it comes to drag racing, all of the 2wd guys (like the X-runners) don't have enough weight on the rear tires to get enough traction for a good launch. Werty is a 4wd and launches in 4wd allowing him to get enough traction to run good times.

    Not sure if you have been over to this site, but it's where all the Tacoma speed freaks hang.

    Im running methane injection and ice in the reservoir for the cooling system along with a 5.55 pulley but I didnt mean 12.7 on the quarter that was my stock time and madtoy was asking me what my 1/8 time. The I wish I had a 12.7 but since I was in florida there is an elevation diffrence so im unsure what I could run there not to mention temperature diffrence.

    There is still a risk of damage in a manual trans flat towing it with the engine off. Even with the trans or transfer in neutral, your bearings don't get proper oiling. I don't know which trans models but some are much more prone than others.

    Flat towing with drivelines in for short or moderate distances isn't a problem.
