    I read ZQ8 suspension several times but they never really broke it down and explained what it was, So I passed it up as just a lowered stance... However, I can't find any data on it's performance figures on anything but 0-60 and 1/4 mile times... While X-Runner's have comparisons against the 350Z and it's 0.90 Lateral G on a skid pad.

    But I suppose, I was wrong and there is more similarity then I thought. However I find the X-Runner to be significantly better than the xtreme's.

    I'm shocked it even lasted this long. I cant think of any trucks in the "sports truck" segment that have been a successful selling truck. An enthusiasts truck yes, but for sales never.

    .
    Does that mean we can throw all the X-Runner owners off the forum now?

The truck looks low but It can go up a curb without scraping anything so speed bumps are not an issue. :) My only issue would be the clutch

    The tranny in them sucks big time !!!!
    And the reason they didn't sell that well is that lots of dealerships didn't even know from year to year if they were still being built. And after 08 I think they were pretty much special order only.

    Chevy SS W/ 454 was a good sport truck, I think. That thing could move and pull/ carry anything. Wish I still had it, it held its value quite well.

    I think the lateral g number speaks for itself when talking about the performance aspect of this truck. It actually has a higher g number on a skid pad then an frs, which is highly acclaimed for its pure handling. Along with a strong motor, that we all know does and is capable of making plenty of power, this truck is a track contender with cars in its same weight class and smaller. I think just the fact that its a truck and not a sports car turns a lot of people off from it.

    no one seems to remember the s-runner from 01-04. Not as flashy as the xr, but still a fun quick little truck.

    I had a 90 Integra with H&R race springs, Tokico Illumina adjustable shocks/struts, Suspension techniques front&rear sway bars, Greddy front strut bar, Skunk2 lower tie bar, Sticky tires (don't remember the brand? [Azenis?])... The X-Runner handles significantly better. The X-Runner was aimed at the 350Z.

    Does C.V California stand for Castro Valley?

    Well depending on how you classify performance, the X-Runner is basically made to turn and look decent. It needs more brakes Larger fronts and how about DISCS in the rear), more power and better MPG considering it weighs only 3750ish. Toyota was a little too conservative overall I feel with the X-Runner and could have made it light years better with little expense.

    A Cyclone will destroy a X-Runner even with the TRD blower in the 1/8 mile due to AWD.

    I agree. But when was the last car that was factory Toyota built that was actually as badass as it shoulda been right off the showroom floor?

    Well the last generation Supra and MR2 Turbo come to mind. As well as the Turbo AWD Celica of the 1990's. In terms of just performance, Toyota hasn't lost their way, they are just too busy building Camry's and SUV's. As for the comment that someone said about the FR-S,,,, that car is meant to drift, not handle and stick. That's why it's equipped with narrow tires off of a Prius. Doubt it?? Look it up.

    BTW,,, look up the performance specs of even the new Camry with a V-6. It's quicker than the X-runner is stock for stock.
