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
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.

*Note this is my daily driver I took out to show it doesn't matter what car
you have.* This was the final run of the day. I pass 5 cars in less than 9
mins. Tires gone, brakes gone and when I mean tires gone I actually had
tread separate after this session. You can hear my drivers side tire
literally coming apart.

1981 Oldsmobile Cutlass convert to Lexus 1UZ engine. Deep V8 Sound
My 81' Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme had originally a thirsty 260 cubic inches
V8 engine with a shameful 105 horsepower. In the early
80ties the American ideology was, cutting horsepower to get a better
fuel consumption. It was completely wrong. Thirsty means because of
underpowered (full throttle every time).
I decided to change the engine 18 months ago and I installed the famous 1UZ
Lexus engine, including the transmission. It was quite a bit of work,
specially the electric installations, but it was worth it.
The "new" fuelinjected 4 liter V8, with four cams and 32 valves, never gave
me any troubles and it runs by 10 liter/100 km (average traffic). At
Highway speed, the electronic controlled Lexus transmission allows me to
run the engine on 1'800 rpm at 120 km/h. I also built a custom Exhaust system to keep the nice deep V8 sound.
With almost 300hp my Baby keeps up with almost every average muscle car.

Ford Focus problem. 1.6 with zetec engine registers overheating.
Intermittent reading on temperature guage.
Thermostat and water pump both been changed but problem still persists. Car

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

2013 Nissan Altima vs Camry vs Sonata vs Passat Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Nissan Altima is the second best selling
car in the highly competitive mid-sized sedan segment in America. It
competes directly with the best selling car in America....the Toyota Camry.
It also competes with the new and very popular kid on the block...the
Hyundai Sonata. And of course it also competes with a car that's built just
down the road from it in Tennessee...the new Volkswagen Passat. So which of
these cars is the best buy and did Nissan do enough to the new 2013 Nissan
Altima to stay in second place or even more up to first place ahead of the
Toyota Camry. Check out another fun and informative TFLcar mashup video to
find out as we compare four of America's best selling cars.
