TOTAL CHAOS Tacoma takes 2nd overall and earns 1st place in
Group T Class at the VORRA Yerington 300.

Matt Vaughan

TC debuted their project Tacoma at this event and out of the box landed a 1st in class and2nd place overall finish battling 58 racers and running a flawless race day for 300 miles. Matt Vaughan out of Corona, Ca. is the owner of TOTAL CHAOS Fabrication Inc. and driver while the co builder Jeremy Bonds of Lake Elsinore, Ca. navigated the dusty 6 lap 50 mile VORRA race course. “The course was super dusty the first 3 laps and we were lucky that when we blew the corners we never caused any damage to the truck. It could have been bad a few times.” Matt stated after the race. “You only get one chance to race a brand new truck. The first place in class was a goal we set. The 2nd place overall in the race was a bonus for sure! We threaded the needle the whole race and never had a flat. My GOODYEAR Kevlar MTR tires were put to the test and this production tire withstood 300 miles of desert abuse and could have run more. The shop crew handled all

the fuel stops and did a great job getting us in and out of the pits!”The TC Toyota Tacoma has been a project vehicle that was used to develop the entire 2005+ Toyota 2wd product line that is currently available to the general public. TOTAL CHAOS offers mid travel performance lift kits and a long travel IFS system that this vehicle was used to test during all the R&D stages. The final kit TC developed was the current “race system” that is 5” over stock and bolts to all factory mounting locations. It incorporates a modified 07 Tundra steering rack, 1990 4wd Toyota custom TC lift spindles, heim steering and uses heim upper pivot control arms. TC stuck with its traditional tubular boxed lower control arms that mount inline 2.5” coil over and 3.0″ Fox bypass shocks. TC also swapped the stock 2.7L with a Toyota 4.0L motor conversion.Our crew had an incredible pit support staff from Team Locos Mocos all day to man each and every pit location around the course. Without BCG 1 running race radio relay on the mountain all day for every VORRA racer radio communication this race would have been a much greater challenge. He repeated every mile marker and we tracked the truck the entire race. THANKS for taking a sun burn for the team!
