Hello all i have been a lurker for sometime on this board and over the few recent months i have become more active over here, you guy are pretty awesome over here and with a very good amount of mechanical know how :)

Any way first off here is other build thread if you want to look back on my past adventures:
http://www.alltrac.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=29239&start=750

So first thing first, i own FOUR ST-165's, a red one, two white ones and a blue one. I will be getting a fifth white one soon...not sure when but i will be.

Here is Red trac from the beginning of everything:

For two white alltracs and each with a motor and one spare motor and two wheel barrels full of spare parts, all for 1000 bucks, best deal of my life.

I think that the next thing to do Dan is to consolidate your Big Brake how-to and move it over here as well.... :)

Holy Hell! 4 165s and a 5th on the way? Thats true love right there! Looks good man, like all your 165s. As for your red trac, are you going to put some good power through it? I also like the shot of your hound running towards the camera.

Thanks man :)...and thanks again for the tranny it was a big help!

haha thanks, Its a headache to say the least, and yes the ones i have on my red trac are specifically the 2009 Tacoma SR5 front calipers

Thanks man, yeah that pic of luke(the hound) is one of my fav's it came out really awesome. Some people tell me its a sickness but i try to convince them it just as you said, love :)
yep, i collecting performance parts slowly but surely, and i am going to build up a second gen 3sgte, around the range of 350-400 awhp is my goal for red trac.

I own just two 185, but my friend said i'm so cracy to own 2 same car. haha.

Dan YOU are SICK. You know if it was anything else it would be called an addiction and you would be having an intervention. HAHA Wait wait there was a white one in there? All I seen was a pile of snow.

Well if you and Nitro find Ctech cozy I might have to frequent over here more often.

Red car’s ULTRA illegal exhaust. FYI…I have had my fun with this little creation of mine, but its not worth it, I mean the spool is MUCH MUCH faster. And the turbo you can hear so well. But it is STUPID loud.

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2434.jpg
Ear protection is NEEDED.

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2418.jpg
May seem small and mundane but such a useful little thing.

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2420.jpg
Ultrasonic cleaner, she works REALLY well!

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2423.jpg
Ultrasonically cleaned injectors

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2421.jpg
My new pads for up front…I am really excited.(btw my old pads have PLENTLY of pad left but I am just upgrading and trying different things)

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2424.jpg
New rims that I got for cheap, they are ALL in perfect condition with that one small exception

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2425.jpg

New fuel pump(now installed)

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2433.jpg
Yet another brake innovation of mine, I mean my brakes run really pretty cool on red trac, but curious how much “brake coolers” will have an effect. And I got the ducting for cheap from home depot. So why not.

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2436.jpg
I won a bet with a friend and the winner had to buy the other person something off ebay, and so this is what my friend bought me. The bet was really stupid though.

I cleaned the hell out of the interior

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2441.jpg
It smells good too!

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2442.jpg
Note the body panel missing ;)…that is fix now

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2443.jpg
It is “ghetto” fix I know…but one I can not afford I new bumper skin, two, it is better than having hanging there broken

Again the children just stitting there enjoying the sun.

Lost a lugnut…this is what happens when you have a friend put on your lugnuts.(fixed now, but things got worse on the other side)

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2446.jpg
Guess what this could be??

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2447.jpg
Come on…I bet your guess will be wrong

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2448.jpg
That basically gives it away right there…

FUCK tint guy, that shit SUCKS HARDCORE to clean up…accursed pervious owners..ugh

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2459.jpg
All shiny and cleaned up.

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2460.jpg
The result from my cleaning….

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2461.jpg
Pur-tey!

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2463.jpg
Took me a good while to detail in the “celica”

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2466.jpg
I used a REALLY LARGE gauge wire(therefore really small wire) as a paint brush, worked well

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2467.jpg
Fuck…broke a stud

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2468.jpg
Seriously UGH.

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2469.jpg
More prep work.

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2470.jpg
Swapped the rims.

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2471.jpg
Letting the paint dry more…I really like those calipers, they will look banging good on red trac.

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2472.jpg
Cleaned, prepped, primmered.

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2473.jpg
Paint coat number 1…I added another coated, and you don’t see the streaking as much with paint coat number 2

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2474.jpg
Rusty?

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2475.jpg
NO…VERY VERY rusty.

http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr149/legacyofdan7/IMG_2476.jpg
After much hard work, finally got that panel back on, the c-clamps are there to help assist the “loctite” tape stuff to seal and stick better.

But yeah I have been decently busy to say the very least, I have actually a few more updates for red car that I should post…but I will take pictures another time and share with everyone :)

In the mean while I am simply happy…no ecstatic that I have two operational alltrac’s again. I miss having the choice.

...ahh the rare joy of being single. :lol:

i have more car stuff hanging all about the place, but that gives you an idea how much i love my humble alltracs....not that you guys did not already know that but figured i would share a bit of my personal life with you guys.

oh, and sorry that i do not post as often as i used to, but since june my life has changed dramatically thus the freedom of working on cars is not a liberty i get to indulge as often as i once was able to.


here are some scarlet pics...enjoy:
