7 yrs of Toyota

Recommended Posts

So seven years ago I jumped into this forum and........let's just say I may have had some fun with you folks with Toyota joining NASCAR. smile

I watch about 3-4 races a year, and check in on the super speedway races with hopefully about 6 laps to go and a yellow flapping in the air. wink

I just want to hear from the hardcore fans, are you pretty much acceptant of the yoda's in the game now? Do you go back to the old Chevy vs Ford/Dodoge and ignore the Toyota finishes. Or is it the result of "You'll get used to it"? Or do you despise that Japenese steel with the fiber of your being?

(Disclaimer.....21 years of Toyota Truck driving) smile

Does Nascar even exist any more? It was in critical condition when it lost Buick and Olds,lost it's pulse when Pontiac left and had no heart left after Dodge went away. Whatever they call it now it sure the heck isn't NASCAR. And to top it all off once they traded the short tracks for the cookie cutters it pretty much sealed the deal.

I agree NASCAR still exists.

I would rather see Toyota gone but they are here so, oh well. I can live with it.

You would figure everyone would be happy that a manufacturer like Toyota (the biggest automaker in the world) is in NASCAR and here for the long haul.

Toyota’s reputation takes a hit with Joe Gibbs Racing penalties

The merger between the engine operations of Toyota Racing Development and Joe Gibbs Racing appeared to be a good move a couple of years ago.

JGR was having trouble with reliability and NASCAR was making a move to electronic fuel injection in the Sprint Cup Series. Without much experience in fuel injection systems, it seemed like a reasonable time for JGR to take the plunge and benefit from TRD’s knowledge and resources.

The worst, by far, came Wednesday when JGR was socked with major penalties for having one connecting rod too light in the race-winning engine of Matt Kenseth at Kansas Speedway.

JGR and Toyota also were penalized. Kenseth’s No. 20 team lost 50 owner points and may lose more over the next seven races. Toyota lost five points in the manufacturer standings (if you can remember the last time you looked up NASCAR manufacturer standings, raise your hand).

But the biggest damage comes to Toyota’s reputation.

Cheaters.

Back in the day a chevy looked like a chevy and a ford looked like a ford. Now they all look the same so who cares. As long as it doesn't go like Indy car raceing where even the drivers are foreign.

    • My slicer works well yet at 130 and it's not almost fully cooked.
    • Thanks for some of the tips. I will try it in the next couple of weeks when i have time. I have read to smoke till about 150 internal temp does it make a diffrence if it goes to 130 or 150?
    • that makes 2 of us. Not sure what the deal is but going back and looking at old posts its doing the same to those pics as well. and there were no issues with those prior.   maybe has to do with the site being down over the weekend and some changes were made? @Rick
    • Looks good to me rundrave.  Is it just me or my phone, but the pics are on roids and I need glasses to read what's typed all of a sudden...
    • I've done both wet and dry brines with much better results with the dry. As grainbelt stated you can mix up whatever sweetness you like. Here's a simple one but pretty good. Its ALL per pound of meat.   1- Tbsp of tenderquick  1.5 Tbsp brown sugar  1/4 tsp black pepper  1 tsp garlic powder ( optional) Mix all the spices together and coat the belly , depending on the size you might have to cut it in half,  this is when you do that and stuff em in two 2 gallon ziplocs.   You can add some maple syrup to the bags as well,flip them  every day for 6 or 7 days then rinse them off real well,  put them on a wire rack and place back in the fridge uncovered. Next day smoke , and like grainbelt said your target internal temp is around 130, let them cool off and wrap up in plastic wrap for the next day of slicing. It might sound a lot of steps but its not that bad, with great results!! Good luck.    
    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
