Very cool stuff..

I just joined the site trying to find ideas on how to get the most out of my Toyota Tacoma truck..

when I first got it I was pullin 26.5mph on average..
I then lowered it and dumped quite a bit of weight in the wheels going from a 25lb wheel to a 13.9lb wheel..

I made a trip to LA from the Bay Area (300 miles?) and with the a/c on the whole way i averaged 28.5mph..

I modified my driving habits and read about winding out in 5th and having more excessive throttle position vs poppin it down a gear and using let throttle position but with more rpm's.

It definatly helped me in the grapevine

Bondo, I dig the areo lid design.. excellent!

I'm going to start looking for a used campershell to mod..
