Freakin TRD

Ok..my girlfriend and i own a pizza place and since we spent all our money to buy it im now delivering pizza wtf, because we cant afford to hire a delivery driver yet cry...but thats another story all together...so i go on this delivery to a fabrication shop and the guy comes out and starts looking at my car and asking about my mods. i notice he's wearing a TRD jacket and i say "ahh you must be into toyotas to", turns out he's an engineer for TRD eek so the first thing i ask him is why they arent putting out parts for our cars? he said there was a lot of political BS going on in TRD and he said it sucks because they want to do more but upper management wont aprove anything.
anyways the guy was cool and he gave me a catalog and his card, unfortunately i didnt get any new answers from him...oh well puke

I heard that TRD is no longer manufacturing body kits for Celicas anymore. Is that true?

Do you know why TRD NA isn't making parts for the Celica?

Does Toyota Japan and Toyota NA don't get along very well, and because TRD is stupid. thumbsdown

Toyota bought the TRD body kit from Toyota over a year ago...dubbing it the "Action Package" so it was made and sold by Toyota, not TRD anymore.
TRD discontinued a lot of their body components for the celica.

TRD=TOYOTA racing development. how and why wouldnt get along man? theyre just stupid. i think TRD is a good company but the misunderstandings between the two companies fucked. fuck you owners of both companies for stopping supra and not making enough and good parts for celica. TRD and toyota should come up with a nice combo for the celica to be different from all the others. afterall, these kinda stuffs are easy $ IMO. especially TRD, they can make a lot off it. you like it, get it if not go fuck urself. thats how TRD business is probably.

TRD has really bad service too! Never responds and doesn't give you answers that you want.

You better keep hoping.

The 1ZZ powerplant is VERY popular in toyota cars, my guess is they will drop the 2zz and make the gt a 1zz-ge 160HP and a 1zz-GESC 200HP with the TRD (under a toyota name plate) SC

This will compete with the HP numbers from the RSX and RSX-S

No more 6speed, they had a HELL of a time dealing with the 2ZZ powerplanet and 6spd in the 7th gen, why would they go through that again?

i just hope because a while back, their original plan for the next gen celica was to make a complete 180 turn and have the car totally redone...bigger engine..and they said a v-6...but you know them..this was probably in 2001 or something. so right now, ill just wait until I find out word from my dad about the new models coming.

well, I'm not trying to speculate, I'm just saying from a design standpoint, why throw a lot of money at a car that already isn't selling well?

Or, it could be just the opposite, they abandonded the 7th gen celica, and are going to make the 8th gen the one to buy.

Who knows. All I know is that Toyota usually drops the ball when it comes to performance stuff.

well, they have the money to throw at something new...it's not like a waste...
they have to throw the money at a new model every time, so that's besides the point.
Because something new will be better obviously.
