Track Test: TOYOTA CAMRY NASCAR EDITION
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/bmuhfn8
When you want to draw strong connections between your NASCAR efforts and your street cars, there's no better way to do it than to build a show stopping custom. And when you're a company like Toyota, the end result is a stunning Camry that packs NASCAR-levels of horsepower in a gorgeous 2-door coupe body. Built in cooperation with TRD, the experts here at RK Motors drew on some pretty impressive fabrication skills to create the Toyota Camry NASCAR Edition you see here.
Similarities to the full-race Camry you see racing on the big ovals every Sunday are not mere coincidence. The exterior shell of the vehicle is a custom 2010 Camry two-door coupe, fabricated entirely in steel by RK Motors' Charlotte expert metalsmiths. Using the body as a canvas, we installed several racecar features including a custom NASCAR-inspired body kit, Toyota grill, carbon fiber brake ducts with fog lights, and TRD emblems. Other trick details include the NASCAR-style side Exhaust system, carbon fiber rear-view mirrors, and that faired-in deck lid spoiler. The paint job is a show-quality two-tone that emphasizes the car's muscular shape.
Underneath the exterior shell lives a powerful TRD NASCAR V8 engine that displaces 358 cubic inches and delivers a cackling 680 horsepower. And yes, before you ask, the engine is fuel injected, not carbureted, and uses distributorless ignition to light the fires. Making it street friendly meant adding A/C, power steering, and a reliable serpentine belt system, which makes this car as comfortable as a stock Camry in the day-to-day grind. Looking at the detailing throughout the under hood area, it's awfully hard to remember that this is a hand-built car, not something off a production line.
The engine is mated to a Tremec six-speed manual transmission with a Ram dual-disc street clutch. With a deep overdrive, the potent engine is capable of pushing the slippery shape of the street car deep into NASCAR territory. Shocks are single-adjustable race pieces with coil-overs. The high performance of the NASCAR Camry can be heard through a custom three-inch Exhaust with X-pipe, Thrush mufflers, Quicktime performance cut out, custom side Exhaust tips and high temperature turbo Black coating. The car sits on 20-inch TSW Jarama wheels wearing Michelin Pilot tires.
Inside, The NASCAR Camry is far more luxurious and comfortable than its NASCAR relatives, and includes such niceties as a full-sized rear seat. The two-tone leather ties in with the exterior paint scheme, and shows no signs of wear. The dashboard and steering wheel are production pieces, while a billet shifter and SPEK gauges by Proparts mounted above the center stack give it a high-performance look. Comfort is enhanced with air conditioning provided by Vintage Air, and for added safety a four-point roll cage was installed. Other details that give it an OEM feel are little details like the trunk and fuel door release on the floor, the overhead lighting, and power windows and locks. A Pioneer DVE receiver with navigation was selected, while Boston Acoustics supplied the amps and speakers. Together, these components are able to counter the throaty sound of the engine and deliver crisp, clear performance that you'll have to hear to believe.
The Toyota Camry NASCAR Edition is fast, comfortable, and fully sorted, with a ton of easily recognized DNA running through its veins. It showcases both RK Motors' design/build capabilities and Toyota's significant commitment to success in NASCAR. Look for it in the TRD display at many of the major auto shows during 2011.
Toyota Camry NASCAR CRAZY LOUD SOUND - Max Papis - Monza Rally Show 2011
During the 2011 Monza Rally Show there was a stunning Nascar car, the Toyota Camry Nascar, driven by Max Papis. It was used before the beginning of every rally special stages. The sound of this car is just incredible and now I know why a lot of people consider it the best V8 engine sound. Just listen to the sound while Papis is driving the car on the opposite straight. AMAZING!!

Toyota Camry Turbo
Here is an updated video of my 2008 Toyota Camry I4 automatic in this video I show the turbo for all you that haven't seen it
What to do when your car overheats
The first thing is don't panic and obviously don't touch anything that is hot or smoking because it will seriously hurt you permanently. If your car overheats, you are in a potentially dangerous situation i.e. engine fire. This video gives you a few quick tips on what to do if your car overheats while driving. This is what I did when my car overheated. I had an issue from April to December and this is what I did. When I got a chance, I checked my coolant tank to see if it had water. When the car cooled down completely, I checked the coolant level in the radiator (with the help of a trusted friend). I always made sure not to touch the radiator or open the radiator cap when it was still hot and I heard popping and sizzling noises. Come to find out I had a cracked radiator. So if you are constantly filling up your radiator or overflow tank that could be the culprit. Eventually, though the problem turned out to be a bad head gasket. But I troubleshooted the radiator, engine oil levels, water pump, egr values, oxygen sensors, cooling fan, mass air flow sensor, throttle body, hoses, and belts before ultimately realizing this was the problem. It's easy for someone to say just go get it fixed, but honestly this is what I had to do until I got these things fixed. The final problem was too costly $1,400 to $4,000 for a 2000 Ford Mustang, so the car was traded this month. Again, this is what I did for 8 months, and I know it works for the most part for the time being. However, I cannot speak to the severity of your problem persay. So always use extreme caution. When it doubt have it towed and don't drive it until fixed if you are uncomfortable with the information because your safety is most important. Hopefully, your problem is not bad like mine was though. Enjoy!
My Richard Petty Ride-Along Experience at Walt Disney World Speedway.
Heres the story of what happened. I am one of the biggest NASCAR fans, every week, I was every race, when there is one, so my mom thought it was a good idea to get me to see, what its like in race car, so my mom bought me the Richard Petty Ride-Along Experience and we had this scheduled on April 6, 2009 at Disney World Speedway. So this is what I saw and how I was in the car. It was a little wierd because I was in a way, hanging on for most of the time, but regardless of what happened, I had an amazing time. I will most likily answer most of your question if you have any about this ride along or what I thought or whatever.
Q: Does the Richard Petty Experience use the COT?
Q: What car you riding in?
A: I'm a Jeff Gordon Fan, so I felt so evil when I rode in the 18 car of Kyle Busch sponsored by M&Ms.
Q: What kind of car was it? (Chevy, Dodge, Ford, Toyota?)
A: I really didnt look, I was very excited about doing this, so I'm just guessing, if they completely copied the Busch car, it was a toyota but I can't be sure.
Q: What was the track like?
A: The track was very different, when I was in the car, I felt like there was no grip and there were a lot of bumps.
Anyway, if you have more questions, let me know.
Sidenote(s): I'm a clutz, as you can see me getting in.
Driver is not me, Driver's name was Daniel.
Look at the window net on my side. If you want my personal opinion, I don't think thats very safe, but whatever.
Comment, ask questions, do whatever.
