All trac in rear, but soon I will have the turbo back on there. Trying to keep it stock looking as possible.

I believe the car looks so much more smooth without badges- with everything visually stock on my car people really cant complain to officials ...Officer, it was black and shiny.... then gone- :evil:

My ST165 is completly badgeless except for the GT-Four in the front 87 JDM grill.

The white ST185 went completly badgeless except for the Toyota emblem in the center. I have a set of GT-Four Group A sticker set for the car when it's finished.

The red ST185 I took off all the badges except for the Toyota logo, but I added the GT-Four sticker from the Group A set. Its a nice looking black sticker.

All-Trac is lame because toyota uses it on station wagons and mini vans as well.

Turbo is lame because it broadcasts what you are

Toyota should come off, so you can stay symetrical with the other badges off.

I'm all for putting a GT-Four badge on because to me, it then makes the car respectful.

TRD to me doesn't really fit on our cars, because we have less support from TRD then almost any other car they support (i.e Corolla's, Matrix, Scions etc.) So in my opinion I say "f*** em"

Plus I think the car looks really clean with no badges.


^^ Agreed 100%

At least 90's don't have the retarded looking Toyota emblem. I mean really, couldn't they have come up with a better logo?

On the doors of my car I had (original from new) stickers that said turbo with a HUGE 4WD. I pulled the 4WD off ages ago, and was going to do the same to the turbo. So I got the car repainted a few years ago, and the paint shop went out and bought new turbo stickers to put back on the doors! Oh well, I can't fault them for trying hard.

as far as stealth goes; oh yeah take off those all-trac turbo badges

but i would put on gt-four badges; 99.999999% of people in america don't know what a gt-four is...and if they do; then by all means its someone i want to be sit down and talk to!

all-trac turbo advertises what the car is; that's no good. you gotta keep 'em guessing.

does anyone know the part # for the gt-four badges?


anyway; i've had people come up to me and bitch at me for throwing badges on a celica; they said that the all-trac never came to america; i laughed and popped the hood; told them it was the only country it was known as an all-trac in.

good stuff.

You guys and I are so opposite. I have a GT-Four badge lying on my desk with me. Still, I don't want to put it on just because people always love to see if the car is a real alltrac.
Another thing, I don't want it to get towed by a regular tow truck and end up ruining the center diff.
