There’s a saying in racing, ”no guts – no glory.” Well, that’s only partially true. Because today, it takes so much more: Like the brain of an engineer. The soul of a racer. The heart of a winner. And the insight and resources of a company like Toyota. Add it all up and you’ve got Toyota Racing Development – TRD, the first name in high performance parts for your Toyota or Scion. TRD has played a prominent role in racing for over five decades, capturing the checkered flag everywhere from the legendary Brickyard of the Indy 500 to the high-speed racetracks of NASCAR, from the top of Pikes Peak to the streets of Long Beach. Even at the grassroots level, TRD engines and racing technology have been helping amateur competitors get the edge and capture the glory.
But TRD does not live by racing alone – TRD is also about producing the parts and equipment that today’s driving enthusiasts want, allowing you to explore new levels of performance in your street-legal Toyota/Scion car, truck or SUV. What makes TRD parts unique? First, every TRD part is designed and built to perform to the same exacting standards that have made Toyota vehicles world famous – that=s quality you can count on. Second, each component is crafted to fit with exacting precision to make your driving experience even more gratifying and exciting. And third, each part is thoroughly tested and refined to ensure your vehicle maintains the proper safety margins on the street or at the track.
TRD: the oldest and best name in high performance for your Toyota or Scion. Here at Stampede Toyota, we have all you could ever want for your TRD accessories!
TRD uses superchargers rather than turbochargers – both designs do a good job of boosting top-end power, but what about low-end? While turbo engines wait for the turbocharger to ’spool up,’ the crank-driven supercharged engine is accelerating off into the sunset! TRD superchargers are tuned to deliver more torque and horsepower from idle to redline, giving you immediate throttle response. That way, you get the power and torque of a larger displacement engine when you want it – and the lighter weight and greater efficiency of a smaller engine when you don’t. So when your goal is more power. count on TRD superchargers to deliver.
Dictionary definition – a supercharger is a compressor driven by the engine for supplying air under high pressure to the cylinders of an internal combustion engine. Reality definition – a supercharger is a device that plants an ear-to-ear grin on your face every time you step on the accelerator!
The performance differential is dramatic, you might even swear you dropped in a whole new motor, while all you did was bolt on a TRD Supercharger. Put simply, supercharging provides the easiest, most dramatic and most reliable boost in horsepower and torque; and thanks to Toyota Racing Development you can add peace of mind
to that equation, too. Because TRD superchargers are purpose-built for each engine – no generic parts here. That way you know you have the right combination for power, performance and long-term durability Here’s why superchargers work: Higher cylinder pressure longer, rather than just high peak pressure, means more power from every power stroke.
TRD Sport Mufflers deliver a measurable boost in performance, are emissions compliant, and meet all aftermarket noise limit standards. Built exclusively of stainless
steel, TRD sport mufflers use factory-type connector flanges and gaskets.
TRD Cat-Back Exhaust Systems boost performance by reducing back pressure to add horsepower. ”A Cat-Back” covers the entire exhaust system, from the rear of the catalytic converter to the end of the tailpipe. Cat-Backs are also known for producing a deep, throaty tone. Crafted of stainless steel, these systems use factory-type connector flanges and existing factory mounting hangers to ensure a precise fit and long-term durability.
How low do you want to go? Well, then, these TRD Lowering Springs are just the ticket. They typically drop your vehicle from 1- to 1/2 -inches, lowering the center of gravity for quicker turn-in, enhanced steering response and improved cornering. They also come with another feature: peace of mind. Because you know that before they go on your Toyota/Scion, TRD has had them out on the proving grounds running through the slalom, skid pad and on the high speed road course. We do this for two reasons: to check the handling and to ensure they don’t rattle, clunk or rub when pushed to the limit (when used with OEM or TRD wheel/tire combinations). And like all TRD products, they’re built using the finest materials, like cold rolled, high quality spring steel to prevent long-term setting or sagging. Then they are phosphate-and-epoxy coated for long-term corrosion protection. So when it’s time to get down: do it the TRD way.
TRD performance shocks enhance your vehicle’s performance by helping provide a firm, well-managed ride without excessive harshness. Tuned specifically for each application, these twin-tube, high-strength shocks and struts use more aggressive valving to reduce body roll, resulting in overall enhanced response and cornering performance. Plus, a shorter strut cartridge improves wheel travel. TRD performance shocks are designed to work with either stock springs or TRD lowering springs and complement TRD performance wheel/tire combinations, making them the ideal choice for extreme street applications.
SWAY BARS & STRUT BRACE
Truth is, the term ”sway bar” is a misnomer. Actually, they’re anti-sway bars because they reduce body lean in corners. To make that a reality, TRD Sway Bars are typically 25 – 100% stiffer than stock. In real world terms, that gives your Toyota/Scion a flatter, more stable cornering stance. They also reduce under steer, providing you with more responsive feel, while preserving the secure handling of the original steering and suspension systems. These TRD sway bars are constructed of the highest quality materials and have an attractive powder coat finish to prevent corrosion and road damage. TRD sway bars work with stock suspension or a lowered vehicle and are a direct bolt-on. sway BARS.
Pop the hood – nothing says serious better than seeing a Strut Brace added to your Toyota/Scion. Check out the benefits – TRD strut braces increase the chassis rigidity,
reduce flex and enhance handling during aggressive cornering or rough-road driving. They also provide a tighter, more rigid overall feel. Best of all, because they’re made by TRD you know they’re going to fit right the first time. That’s because they’re constructed of the finest materials and crafted to fit with exacting precision. In fact, each application is rigorously checked for fit and function and road-tested over a variety of road surfaces to ensure there are no squeaks, rattles, or excessive ride harshness.
It’s too easy to assume all wheels are created equal. But think about how they are engineered: At TRD, we go back to the basics studying the original engineering design criteria of the vehicle then we use state-of-the-art CAD design techniques to create the right wheel for that vehicle. That means having the proper offset. The right weight. Ensuring nothing rubs the suspension or the body. And that there’s optimum ventilation for the disc brakes. Once all that is accomplished, then the next step is making sure these wheels are knockout gorgeous and finished to stand up to the rigors of the road. Here’s another key fact – all TRD wheels are designed to work with the existing Tire Pressure Monitoring System sensors, where applicable. All TRD wheels are sold individually, complete with center cap and lug nuts.
TRD big brake kits are sized specifically to maintain factory front-to-rear weight balance, while enhancing stability during aggressive driving and panic stops. Plus, the calipers are finished in high-temperature TRD red epoxy and boldly feature the TRD logo. TRD big brake kits ? when only the best will do!
Look at the size of a brake pad. Now stop and think – 8 of those can bring a vehicle to a screeching stop in seconds. Impressive when you have the right brake pads. And TRD High-Performance Brake Pads are the right choice for select Toyota/Scion vehicles. These pads are a direct replacement, so they’re easy to install. And, they use the optimum pad material for impressive braking performance while minimizing wear, brake noise and excessive brake dust and that’s a winning combination.
You may take your oil filter for granted, but this small, inexpensive part of your vehicle’s lubrication system plays a vital role in protecting the engine from premature wear ? particularly in a high performance engine. Each moving part in the engine and the cylinder walls requires clean oil for proper lubrication and lasting life. That’s why TRD High-performance oil filters are designed to hold 45% more dirt than the leading national brand; that means TRD filters keep filtering long after other filters have completely quit. TRD high-performance oil filters also have a silicone anti-drain valve that stays flexible at extreme temperatures and eliminates dry start wear by retaining oil after engine shutdown. It’s all about the design: inside these oil filters you’ll find arch-pleated, low restriction internal filter media that lets the engine pump more oil, helping to protect vital engine components. TRD high performance oil filters deliver filtering performance backed by TRD quality.
Oil and water don’t mix. But what about oil and cotton? Together, they form the basis for TRD High-Performance Air Filters. The benefits are amazing: For one, it’s a free-flowing design that allows the maximum amount of air into the engine with minimal resistance. Second, they do not affect the factory warranty on your Toyota/Scion.
AUTOMATIC TORQUE BIASING (ATB) LIMITED SLIP DIFFERENTIAL
TRD Automatic Torque Biasing (ATB) Limited Slip Differential offers performance-minded owners increased traction under hard acceleration and cornering. Features floating, helical gears, designed to distribute power appropriately to wheels; helping prevent loss of drive when wheel spin occurs by re-distributing the power to the wheel that has traction.
On manual transmission-equipped vehicles, the clutch is the vital link between the engine and drive-train. And the right one makes all the difference in the world: Smooth shifting. Solid transfer of power. Long-term durability.
COLD AIR INTAKE
When it comes to air, hot is bad, cool is good. Why? Because when air is cold, it’s more dense: therefore, it packs more power. One way to deliver colder air to the engine is by adding a TRD Cold Air Intake system – these systems are dyno tested and deliver an increase in both horsepower and torque for superior acceleration and more pulling power (they sound good, too).
In the old west, gun battles were won by the fastest draw. On the track, races are won by the quickest shifts. On the street, quicker shifts mean more driving enjoyment. To help make these goals a reality, TRD offers a whole line of quickshifters that feature up to a 1/3 shorter shift throw as well as faster, more positive shifting. TRD quickshifters are available for a variety of popular Toyota/Scion vehicles. Their performance-oriented leverage ratios and rugged steel construction create a solid race-car-like feel.
