Toyota Tacoma X-Runner ’04

It is big and bold, and heavy. Very interesting choice for a drift car. However since this is Team Shmo strange car choices are exactly what we want. As you will see below the tune is even more strange, but trust me it drifts great. It is super heavy and a tiny bit of extra gas will cause you to slide off the track. As long as you pulse the gas and hold it when you need it you shouldn’t have any problems. It is different to drive compared to a normal car since the weight and higher centre of gravity, but after a couple laps you will get used to it. It looks pretty great in the replays. The rear seems so slammed when you are drifting it just looks cool.

As I mentioned at the start it has a strange tune because all parts are added, but the power is extremely reduced. I assumed it would create a horrible tune, but it actually works pretty well. The power is slow to be delivered, but this makes it easier as it doesn’t over rev. It allows you to have more control over the car and plan shift points easier. Another benefit is you can add a bit more power if it’s too slow for you. The tune is by Tyler Perry.
