Default Wes's Off-Road Scion tC

I've found a forum full of people who 'get it'. But I want to see what you guys think, just for a hell of it.



Behold! The dirty tC!

Modifications not obvious is pics:
- 'Custom' short-ram intake (I put 'custom' in quotes because I just slapped some crap together and it worked.)
- Custom exhaust (Megan Racing 4-2-1 header -> 18" hushpower -> 12" flowmaster cat -> 12" cherrybomb -> mandrel-bent 2.25" tubing out the side in front of back right wheel)

To-do list:
- Street roll bar (I know the harness mounts are super dangerous; I don't do any sort of driving that poses any kind of extra rollover risk)
- 2" lift all around (probably just gonna fashion some strut-frame spacers)
- Fix broken winch, haha
- Replace glass roof with a bus-style emergency hatch
- Skid plate (gonna be a PITA; oil pan sticks out like crazy)
- Hydraulic handbrake
- Steering wheel airbag

Then you can go look at every other tC on this site that is lowered and shiny.

Thanks! I posted it on YSTC and DirtyImpreza. What else would you black out? You mean tint all the lights to black? I used to have the headlights tinted but I pulled it off so I could see better out in the desert at night.

I used to laugh everytime I saw this on YSTC. I laugh even more now. This is an attempt to mod a car without knowing what the hell anyone is doing.

Sooo... would this be considered an off-road ricer?? I mean its FWD. The interior looks like shh_ but the exterior looks better than most scions at car shows.

What about the car is 'rice'? You guys are pathetic.

Glad you like the outside though!

hmm, was this a salvage title you decided to transform? or was it a perfectly normal tc before this?

other then the fact that the car will never be back to normal, i can appreciate what you were going for, in for vids tearing up the backroads!
