So, I have to say my favorite statement by Bob Hilliard during his opening statement on Thursday in this lawsuit. He showed the Toyota testing specification for when Toyota tested their 1996 Camry LE before determining if it was safe or not. The test was specifically for the Accelerator Control System (ACS). The ACS that Toyota tested all contained metal pulleys which control the accelerator cable.

Well as it turns out, Koua's '96 Camry has plastic pulleys. Toyota never tested the ACS units with plastic pulleys. Unreal.
