    N00b here. I just scored a good looking (mica?) 06 with 150k that somebody cheaply dumped and I couldn't pass on it considering my skills. I plan to get it stable and possibly sell it in a couple months. I'm a tacoma for life guy, and owned a solara, so I'm familiar with the motors. Seems like a great middle ground car. I've had tuners that include ser specv, wrx, msm, 240sx, and lastly a s2k.
    I'm not looking to beat Jonny Tran at Race Wars or do any canyon runs with it, but I see the value, practicality and fun in the design. The whole car seems really simple. Who knows, I might just love it enough to drive it for a year and work any kinks out and even the wife might like it.

    While I love tuner cars, my go to these days is a truck and I'm on the hunt to replace my Taco with the X-Runner. Buying a house should come secondary to owning a truck. I love the SVT lightning, but ford and automatic and broken spark plugs make me pause. Tundra's, Raptors all nice, but I abhor car payments. I'd rather own a slow car than pay 500/mo for a "fast" daily driver.

    What I'll be looking for next is which mods I can do that remain street legal enough as we have yearly inspections here. I wouldnt mind going the E/I/S route and maybe some stereo bits. For the cost and headaches of a turbo (considering the problems I've already read concerning the TRD s/c kit) I'm guessing those monies would be better spent buying something thats actually fast if speed is what you need. A miata or the s2k is probably more than enough for the average wrenchmonkeyspeedjunky if you live close enough to a track and want to keep your wallet from turning into a 5th-dimensional black hole of debt.

    Anyway, hello from NC and I'll probably make a lot of annoying points, trolls and ask a lot of questions as I pour through the threads. Dont fear. I'm a professional.

    Are we allowed to talk about the club? If this is my first night at TC club, do I really have to fight somebody?

    No, you are not allowed to talk about the Club. We are a Secret Society.

    Yes, you will have to fight Mike Tyson tonight in the Main Event.

    We will find out if you are a 'Professional'.

    Welcome to CStC!

    LOL. Palahniuk is prophetic. Funny thing is that story takes place in Wilmington, Delaware - where I'm sort of from. I've lived in all 3 counties and its a small state. At least the mods have a sense of humor here. Is this the primary TC forum? I recently got the FSM recently and have yet to start exploring. I'll be diving into the car this week/weekend. The engine isnt running yet, but I have a suspicion that the fuel pump isnt operating. I just pulled and charged the new battery I already killed trying to start it lol. Its going to be a great week...well as soon as I clear enough floor space in the garage.

    -It's about soap.

    I am a professional, but that could be anything. Imaginations are awesome!
