Back in the day, Steve Ruddick's '85 Toyota Extra Cab 4x4 sported two solid axles, four leaf springs, and just enough suspension travel to smooth out a rolled-up newspaper or a parking lot speed bump. Things have changed. I-beams and links now control the wheel travel, allowing the Toy to skim the whoops instead of laboriously crawling through. Early in the Dirt Wars campaign, Steve got a friendly tug back to the pits courtesy of Belden Alivio, but got back on the track as soon as an electrical gremlin was discovered and dispensed with. The four-cylinder's performance doesn't match the suspension's ability anymore, so look for a V-6 in the near future.
