loaner from the dealer

so I dropped off my 03 GT 5 speed for a tranny rattle that is being covered under warranty...and they gave me a loaner...but do they give me something that is small, low to the ground, and handles decent like my celi...nope, I got a 2004 raised V8 toyota tundra 4 door...its huge, and its like parking a damn boat thumbsdown...but ya gotta luv the torque from the v8 thumbsup

eh...not sure...if it is, then its not much to talk about...doesn't feel like it though...my celica revs faster, and feels quicker I think...the tundra just owns it going up hills, but to get a good launch you have to ease into the throttle, if you step on it, it takes a little while to recognize and downshift, or it will bog a little off the line...so meh...not sure...and oh yeah...1,000th post!!!!!!...hooray cheers goodtimes goodjob goodjob thumbsup

yeah, its pretty strong...I've never drag raced, but I've done a few track days...it definitely handles stock GT's. never raced a GTS 6 speed, but have never lost to a GTS auto, and have beaten a Z71 tahoe, and ripped on a 6.0 escalade...don't know how revelant that is to the tundra, but I know that they owned off the line, but when I hit second I caught up, and by third I was gone...I know that they are heavy like the tundra, and they also have more power...but yeah, its strong, but I'm not sure exactly ( numbers )how fast it is

all of you are lucky guys. they gave me once a dodge neon. i swear i didn't drive it. i had my wife drive me all the time. she loved it given that it's smaller than her truck. everything about it was messed up no power windows , too much unused space, too bulky and too damn slow( automatic). i couldn't wait to get my celiback. boy i was so excited the day it was ready. lol

I get 150 miles a day on the loaner...10 cents a mile after that, and no, I didn't have the money to have them install the clutch and flywheel (TRD japan / fidanza combo)...I had to pay $800 for tuition, and $300 for books today, so yeah...no Performance stuff for me today
