Daox's 2004 Toyota Prius Build Thread
Time to start a new thread for the new car. I'm really psyched to get started with this car to see what it can really do with a bit of tweaking. But first, lets see some pics!

Alright, the first mod is a bit of a teaser, but it is the first step. In case you can't read it, that says 50.

What kind of tires is it wearing?

Daox 07-04-2009 03:49 PM

Its got brand new tires on it (semi-unfortunate since I didn't get to choose them). They are Uniroyal Tiger Paws. I have no idea, but it has a semi-aggressive tread pattern on it, so RR is probably taking a hit, but I can't say that with certainty.

They're 44 max psi sidewall if anyone is wondering.

Day two, mod #2. :D

I took the Prius to the EV build day in Milwaukee. The guys had a lot of questions about it. I also wanted to install and EV mode switch since its a zero cost mod and will come in handy from time to time. Anyway, it was a quick an easy install. All you need to do is put a momentary switch inline with a pin on the EV ECU and ground the other end. It took all of ~30 minutes to do. I have pics on Ben's camera, so when I get them, they'll be posted.
