There is a way to promote the tuner scene and educate enthusiasts at the same time on the dangers of illegal street racing. Team Toyo Street is on it with Project Exploit every time they enter car shows.

Project Exploit was created at the beginning of 2007 with teams from the drifting, racing and off-road divisions. Eight of Team Toyo Street’s award winning vehicles are one of kind toys and at the same time, are street approved for daily driving. Safety is stressed at every event.

“The Project Exploit has only one truck on the team right now,” said D’mitri Moisseev of Project Exploit in Canada. “I saw my 2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer LTZ for the first time in June of 2004 and I fell in love with it. At the time I didn’t have my driver’s license, but my buddy agreed to drive me to the dealership which was over 2400 miles away. I rushed to get my drivers license with the Ministry of Transportation and failed. I couldn’t let the dream go away so I took the test a second time. I was so nervous because I wanted the Trailblazer so bad it was as if my life depended on it. You can only imagine the smile on my face when I found out that I finally passed the test and got behind the wheel of my baby the very next day.”

Moisseev decided to modify the Chevrolet after a fender bender. “My insurance broker didn’t except my claim and I had to fix it myself,” he said. “I started changing things one by one and eventually got hooked.”

The Trailblazer went though changes and modifications. “I wanted to create a truck with modern versatility,” he said. “I also wanted an urban style with a mean look and improved performance.”

Moisseev only choose the best parts available for his truck. “I went with K&N Engineering products because I did not want to be outperformed by some other guy out there,” he said. “This was our first year as a team, and we were respected.” Installed K&N products are air filter RC-5145, K&N air filter wrap RF-1012DY and K&N oil filter HP-2006.
