    And no more seats. I have an SRT4 passenger seat in my shed, but it's been sitting in there for 2 years...so it's probably not all that pleasant.

    If I didn't have such a big issue with traction, I'd probably still be boosted...but not being able to get traction in 3rd gear gets annoying after a while. I only ran the 1/4 mile once and got 13.8 @ 109, but I never got into the straight line racing, I prefer AutoX.

    And yes, I know, surging galore lol.
    Wow that trap is great. My guess on that 1/4 is that you were spinning through third gear and spun on the launch, ergo a rather slow time. Get some slicks man, and you would be down into 12s.

    Evo's are *slow* but once you put a *little* work into them...they change into monsters. Stage 2 and cams alone will put you into the 11s in one.

    That's why I decided to sell the tC. 300whp is too much for 1 wheel drive. If I wanted to keep it and make it useful in 1-3 gear, it would have needed much stickier tires, an LSD, and wider rims. Easily a good 4-5k.

    I can't believe you squeezed 300 whp from a scion... scions are usually kiddy playgrounds while the adults tinker with real cars... but you turned it into a real performance car. Nice driving, BTW, especially in the rain... not to mention a FWD car without an LSD has the tendency for MAD understeer and torque steer.
