      I must be in the minority, I really like the multispoke "rally-style" wheels on RS's.

      Yeah seriously, is this the new steering wheel for the refreshed ST as well? The buttons on the steering wheel in the "old" Focus ST were terrible and looked like an afterthought.

      Sort-of OT, but your Bear Notch Road story on your website is a very entertaining read. I was up in that area this past summer in my dad's Miata, and I just had to check it out for myself. What a...

      Seems fishy. I'm at ~17k miles (~27k km). I generally drive fairly aggressively and have done multiple autocrosses (I'm the next Senna), and my pads seem to have a decent amount of material remaining.

      I think you're right that it's unibody, but isn't it also IRS?

      I'm looking forward to seeing what he does with it. His previous rigs were well built and he actually goes wheeling instead of just talking about it. Not to mention he takes some great pictures.

      I live in the north east, so plenty of salt used unfortunately. All the frames must rust out up here before the differential is a problem :laugh: :beer:

      Great, thanks for your condescension.

      My point is ALL Toyota trucks (and other manufactures like Land Rover and Ford) have 3rd member axles. I've never heard of people having problems with...

      Rusting all the way through a cast iron axle isn't exactly a common problem.

      I must have misunderstood your post, obviously you're familiar with open diffs and what not :thumbup: :beer: In that case sorry for explaining the obvious :laugh:

      Toyota have always used 3rd member axles. I don't see the problem. Ford 9inch is the same way.

      The extended cab is definitely the way to go. The double cab shares sheet metal with the Sequoia and is physically wider than the access cab (IIRC). It's bizarre.

      Well that's due to the open differentials. Newer vehicles with a decent traction control system will brake the two wheels that are off the ground to attempt to send some power to the two wheels with...

      Will be watching this. I can't decide if these are too big for east coast trails.

      Yes but that is still far more effective than a CUV with a transverse engine and a clutch mechanism to send power to the rear.

      I think the point is a mechanical linkage is probably an easier fix on the trail than an electronic one.

      But the ironic thing with the 4Runner is doesn't it still have an electronic actuator for...
