I know, I know, I meant standard as in "not modified". But yes, it was sandbagged to avoid wheel spin (The Shuttle Tundra probably was too, unless it weighs as much as a mountain).

Point is: Both cars are BIBLICALLY powerful :O

INB4 Japanese cars having more American parts in them than American cars do. :p
I think they're built in San Antonio...
Oh I am well aware that that truck is designed for and built in the North American market, but it's still a Toyota. :p

If it was a Chevy or Ford, then it wouldn't be funny, but it is funny because it's a Toyota. :D

Correct me if I'm wrong, but while that is an impressive feat for that truck. It's not so much about power as it is about torque and gearing. I'm pretty sure my Jeep with it's measly little V6 could flat tow something like that if I threw it in 1st and 4low, which gives me a 73:1 crawl ratio.

Just like most rotaries, broke down with the hood open in the garage. ;)

Good looking RX-7!
