Me?

An early 90's five liter, back when I was stock. He completely OWNED me!

this WRX owned me last weekend http://t-rexmotors.com/sp-bin/spirit?PAGE=5 he was on 21 pounds of boost while i was on 17ish, he said he was on low boost, but his setup is good for 540hp, his sponsers are throwing a new engine in it soon, they are looking for a 9second pass.

we did a second gear roll from 35, he pulled on me by 2 and a half cars by the time 3rd was over. His dogbox trans sounded soooo amazing, i want one.

The Integra LS I posted about before. I wish we could've gone from a dig or something, my slushbox wasn't made to go from a roll. Even then he barely pulled on me which is what really annoyed me.

Pimped up 1991 Hyundi POS with plastic wheel trims and his mother in the passenger seat.

Pulled up next to me at the lights, looked over, gave me the bird and went for it.

I was laughing so hard I forgot to select a gear.

it uses striahgt gears instead of synchros, you only have to use the clutch while starting out. when shifting you only let off the gas for a tenth of a second to shift, its amamzing, it sounds exactly like a motor cycle shifting, and makes a loud whine just like reverse in a normal car.

they are hard to daily drive though, but they are still very cool, they allow you to shift as hard as you want, they are alot more durable than normal transmissions

haha, i lost by about 2 car lengths by the top of third from a low 2nd gear roll from a wrx the other day. he has straight cut gears. sounds neat. he also had sti turbo (vf39) with appropriate fuel mods and u-tec and should have been putting down about 280whp.. vs. my stock swap running 13psi. i think i would have been much closer running 15psi. but i give him props for having a sweet car.

Interesting. left off the gas completely (0% throttle)? Because that would be too much like normal shifting. So I'm assuming there's some sort of crunching that occurs when shifting gears?

Not to hijack this thread completely: I got walked by an eg6 civic from a stoplight. I owned his ass through first and second but he ate my lunch from third on up to about 110. He ended up about 5 car lengths ahead of me. This was getting onto a freeway onramp late at night...no traffic. He had what I'm assuming to be full exhaust, and the rest was mostly cosmetic: monster tach, cf hood, suspension. I was stock 5sfe.

CelicaGT4
11-28-2005, 09:05 PM
The only car I've ever lost to was an 04 Evo. with a gt35r pushing 25psi on race gas. That was on the freeway. We both lost to eachother once. But that was the only loss so far. I must admit I get lucky sometimes!

Now on the drag strip...thats a completely different story. 60ft's own me. I get beat by cars that trap 15mph less than me. hahaha, i suck at the launch.

fiveSFE
11-29-2005, 05:09 AM
im not an expert on it, but i believe you only have to let off the gas just a little bit.

i read the thread name wrong and thought least was last,i got beat by a stock mustang not to long ago.

when i had my celica i lost to a hyundai accent with a si sticker, i had 4 people in my car, it was pretty embarrasing

In reference to the dogbox, there are slotted bullets on the side of the gear which lock in so you don't have to lift off the throttle. If anyone here gets Sport Compact Car, there's an article about a new tranny out of England (I think it's called the ZeroShift?) that's a derivative of the dogbox but is sooo much sexier.

in my celica i almost lost to a 94 corolla once it was a close race we were neck and neck. worst part was his car was all quiet and mine was making a shit load of noise with the exhaust and cai haha but through second i kicked his ass.

it was still embarrassing lol

A grand prix, lost by a car length from a roll. BUT, he definitely blew a coolant hose which sucked because it sprayed my car with coolant which I had to wash off at 2 am.

In my Sonoma, before the 350 LT1 swap, I lost to a 2003 Bonneville SSEi by half a car length. That old 4.3L gave the Pontiac a good run.

The Celica, probably this mid-90's Dodge Stealth on the way back from Purdue last Friday. It wasn't an R/T though.

01-06-2006, 12:20 AM
Mine would be a pontiac grand prix. Not sure of the year he blew me away from two different lights. It was mainly because of my clutch not letting out all the way.

16's with a 5 speed maybe. I took that car to the track one night and ran a consistent 17.7 (how can you NOT be consistent with an auto?) I still loved that car though.

I lost to stock EK(96+) civic, he had intake and fart can with a giant spoiler, and white rims, i see him while cruising, he sspotted me to, we end up at a light together, i drove normally and i hear him squell the tires a bit and take off, once he noticed i wasnt going he started driving normally, i catch up to him without downshifting, i give him a nod, he nods back, i downshift into 4th(lol) he downshifts also, he honks 3 times and we go at it (i didnt downshift) and turbo lag killed me but i wasjust messing around he got like 4 cars on me, so i decided to downshift, putting it into 3rd i start pulling him in like crazy but by the time i got right next to him he hit his brakes and threw his hazords on.

We pull up to the next light together, and i ask him if he wants to go to again, and he says in a cocky way "Why so i can smoke you twice" which really pissed me off

Guy in a jeep 4.0l cherokee with a huge ladder on the roof starrin at me,
My clutch is TOAST, slippin like a honda automatic tranny... and he slams it hard when the light went green, I Got through first, and quickshifted to second, slammed the gas and watched the tach go to redline as i slowed down... drove softly to the next light and pulled up against him again, he stuck his arm out and gave a thumbs down. while my clutch is so hot smoke is pouring out the hood. man clutch smoke smells like CAT PISS!

I gotta say maybe 3 yrs ago in my first celica a 91gt only mod was an upgraded clutch. with 3 passengers all weighing in at about 170 each. I lost to a 99 or 00 neon with the same number of passengers about the same weight. it was from a roll too.

Lol, when i was 16, six years ago :( my first car, with just a CAI and I thougth that made it the bomb!! (I was a n00b) But i pulled up to this ugly looking hatch back, and got barely beat...

Funny that i now own a hatch that looks remarkebly the same as that car... yes.. i'm talking about a 5th gen gts... lol that was back in the day when i had a cavalier.. :o yea after 6 grand of investments... that car was much faster.. than it died... and now i own the thing that first embarrased me... i remember it like it was yesterday..

1997 Neon.

This happened about a week ago. He's now one of my new friends. Just moved here a week ago.

I felt better after i learned he was making 292whp/284wtq. This thing ran a 12.69 @ 118 on TERRIBLE all season tires.

It's the ACR model, also with a stripped interior.

I got to drive it, and it's thoroughly entertaining, as well as extremely.....violent.

hey, I only got my Celica last week end and haven't been out thrashing it too hard just yet so no loses drag-wise yet. My previous ride has an 85 Mitsubishi Nimbus ( this is what they look like - http://203.26.51.178/cracker/61251996_1.gif). As you can see it's no road weapon but it took me many a mile for surfing trips and the like. I'm looking forward to a sportier drive tho now with my new car and thus far haven't been too disappointed. I'll keep you posted on any future "ass handings" (?).

I lost to a 94 civic hatch just before I overboosted. It was N/A, so I was like WTF, there's no reason that a 160 hp civic hatch could beat my boosted 2200 pound ST. Then I found out it was a K swap (K24 bottom end, K20 top) making about 210 horse. I felt a bit better after that.

I love my Celica though. On prom night a few weeks ago (this is a beat) I was on my way to my date's house with my friend and his girlfriend. He had his '85 Nissan 300ZX, naturally aspirated. I threw it down into third and jammed it home. I passed him like he was sleeping. He even told me he downshifted into third and threw it as he saw me put on my turn signal. The next day we went down to this road that my friends and I use for racing and went from a dig. I had him there, too. My friend has a 1986 Fiero that he claimed was faster---heh. I run my car on premium all the time, and since our family friends own a fuel additive business (ET Products, Bremen, IN) I have a gallon of octane booster that they sell. I pamper my car and I get good results.

Great news though. I was entering college this next fall at Notre Dame. My dad works there, so it's free. I slacked off this past term and got kicked out and put into Holy Cross College (yeah where Rudy went). I'm staying at home.....which equals no college debt since ND pays for wherever I go.

Well a friend of mine and I were leaving work, and as soon as we pass a light he steps on it, I'm like wtf?? he was already 1 1/2 cars ahead of me So I floor it in 2nd, shift into 3rd, and I'm slowly reeling him in, and he lets off of it, I was like WTF?? I so want to race him in his mazda3 so I can show him my car is that much quicker then his, but he refuses to come out and play.......AHHHHAHH pissed me off so much. I can't wait to do my 3" exhaust, right now I'm on the stock 5sfe 2" exhaust & muffler.

I still need to be in his lane, so I just let off so I can get behind him... he lets off at the same time though... grr.. I never did get on that freeway... I had to take the backroads home :slap:

psh, I live in CA, land of the rice. I've seen mini vans with flame vinyls. I see civics and integras with fart cans at least 2 or 3 times daily. it's actually quite rare that you see a car with bodykits that has been repainted.

Dont laugh at the minivans.. theres a Dodge minivan here funniest thing I have ever seen that runs 11s with a 4g swap.. Very funny.. Now back topic

So I've read all of these and I still have yet to see anyone come up with worse than mine. I was at a stoplight and this chick in a red pos grand cherokee pulles up next to me. I was in my 5th gen 5sfe w/o muffler, and K&N drop in at the time. The light turns green and I got raped like a high school cheerleader in 1ST GEAR!!!! By the time I was in 2nd SHE was easily 10-12 car lengths ahead! I had never been tossed that badly in my life, and since then, still nothing has raped me that badly. Turns out that pos grand cherokee had a 5.0 liter V-8.

ouch, that hurts. of course, she would only have you beat in a straight line, any kind of tight cornering and you would've gotten her! lol

I think I lost to a civic with an exhaust last night, my first race, I paid more attention to him than I did my own car, and thus didn't even floor it. :( It was a reasonably fast civic, look like a 90's model, but eh. He told me "Come back with more horsepower next time."
ouch. but dang, even a stock ST is faster than a stock civic. If he had some mods, then don't feel too bad if you're car is stock.

I think I have one of the most embarrasing.

So i pull up to a light, at the time my car was all black, tinted windows, blacked out tails, black rims...it looked like a beast haha...

some hardass older dude pulls up next to me in a convertible Chrysler LeBaron, and looks over and chuckles to himself.

so the light turns green we both go for it, and i get the jump, but as i soon as i shift into second, he pulls in front, and he stays there until im in at least late 3rd gear, and i think he gained like 1-2 cars on me...

bastard....thought he was hard in his POS LeBaron :thumbsdow , dont think ill ever let that one go lol

Depends on what year and trim model...

I can safely say that every civic i've ever driven, barring those crappy DX versions felt at least as fast as my GT, if not faster. Let alone an ST.

Actually, I found out yesterday, after some more research that it was an Accord. Whetther that was a I4 or a V6 (probably, he was moderatly fast, as I said) However, I had been paying attention and not just watched his car, but floored mine and caught the powerbands through 2nd and 3rd, I might have held on better.


Depends on what year and trim model...

True, but that is all dependant on the car. In an article about a Turbo tC versus a supercharged tC, the supercharged was faster at 300, but the Turbo "felt" faster. I imagine this is similar to how it sometimes feels in muscle cars verses a small four banger.

My buddy has a 94 accord LX, I4, 2.2. He held with me pretty well till 3rd gear, thats when his Vtec started helping him out, but he only inched up on me, and by the time we were in 5th at like 85 or something he was only like 3/4 of a car length in front of me when we came off of it. His is a stick, so I doubt an auto could hang like that. We're pretty comparable in terms of driving/racing skills too.

Ah....

I drove a 1998 Accord LX Auto, and it was hands down faster than my celica. Celica was faster off the line, because of the shorter 1st gear, but after that, it was game over.

The 94 may be different... can't really tell ya. :)

LX accords dont come with VTEC. those generation EX 4cyl had them.

Maybe it was an EX then. He took the badges off so I was kind of guessing. I do know it's a 4 cyl. Doesn't matter though, he's putting the prelude H22 in there anyway.

2nd was me inthe plymouth with my girl her sister and my same friend..plus a bass guitar cab...kid pulls up in a gutted out, fart can camry...with his girl he takes off and im not even trying...and he is trying so hard, his girl is looking really imbarrased as im just keeping up by messing with the throttle, then i floor it and leave him like he was standing still..hahaha

Now my girl had the 6gc st, and raced some kid in an integra and beat him, then he did a ricer fly by...hhahaha poor ricers..

with my little bolt ons I have, I let ym friend use ym car while i was on vacation and he told me I suck lol. He took pics of the 240, alltrac and gt in his driveway and shit. Said he took an eclipse, 5th gen and a civic while he had it and he wanted to see how it pulled topend wise. He told me he didn't want to give it back either and if he didn't have his celi, he'd rock a 240 easy. Anyway, I'll let you know how the race against his trac goes, maybe that will be my most embarrassing. I've kept up with an srt-4, but i suspect he sucked at driving. Oh oh, my most humiliating defeat was a cobalt, beat me by a fender.

I remember losing to a Honda Insight in my '90 GT-S (auto). We were at a light and the lanes merged into one lane up ahead so we gunned it and I ended up falling behind. My friends were all in the car laughing at me. :laugh:

Something's wrong with your Alltrac. Even a supercharged tC shouldn't be able to keep up with an alltrac.

Actually I'm pretty sure a supercharged tC would beat a stock alltrac. They'd be very similar in the power department, SC vs Turbo wouldn't really be an issue, stock AT doesn't really lag. AT would have traction advantage of course, but partly because of that, also weighs a little more. It'd be close, but I think if the tC didn't screw up launching it would pull away from the 'trac.

If i remember correctly, the S/C tC has a faster 0-60 time, despite traction deficit, and from a roll, it would only get worse...

Whoops, I thought the stock Alltrac ran a 14.7, not a 15.3. A supercharged tC would barely win, the best time I found for one was 15.1.

to end the accord vs. celica dispute. This guy I work with drives one of the older ones (pre 94, maybe even the gen before that), it's an ex coupe. we were following each other for a while. I make fun of him for his car all the time, so naturally he tries to smoke me at every stop light. and time after time I just leave him hanging. to be fair, he has an auto, but I wasn't shifting anywhere near redline or even flooring it.

so HA! take that accords!

On another note tonight, in a half hearted race, I was beaten by a douche who can't drive in an xB. Thus, I lose at life. I have no problems with the xB, nice car, but I'd like to think in my own little world that the Celica can hold it's own, and that I can race worth a damn. To be honest, the first is probably true in regards to an xB, and the second is false, very very false.

seems like the 3sgte has no topend power... even honda's vtec kicks harder at higher rpms (i use to have a civic swap b18c)...

my previous 91 mr2-T and this 90 alltrac seems similar in power (stock, no mods)... many peeps are not suprise to see how the 3sgte performs...

maybe im just not good at tuning turbo cars??? my previous sw20 is stock and current st185 is stock as well... new cars seems to have more power...

right now i can only "think" i can keep up with a stock integra GSR...since the tC kills most GSRs... :(

N/A tuning is (almost) totally different than FI tuning. I'm no expert, but I'd recommend you check out this book:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0760315825/sr=8-1/qid=1153968844/ref=pd_bbs_1/002-1994205-7388860?ie=UTF8

I'm reading it right now, it's got a lot of good information on engine tuning for both N/A and FI applications.

Few hours ago, against Renault Clio (I wonder if they sell them in USA?) on a wet road. We both kinda gunned it, when the lights turned green, but since he had better reaction, he already was several meters ahead. I was slowly (very slowly!) gaining on him, when my revs suddenly jumped from 4.5k up to 7k, it felt like wheels had lost traction. I switched to second, but he was already creeping away. After few more seconds of this embarassement I had to back off, since we were already doing more than 80 km/h in 50km/h zone.

It wasn't the ultimate V6 version, in fact, I'm pretty sure that it wasn't even a sports version. So what do we have here, French 1.6 (or even 1.4) engine won over 2.0 3S-GE. Very embarassing. Looks like I need to take driving lessons.

This wasnt really a race but this was the only time an unworthy car 'beat' me. I was in the white alltrac and my firend was in his 98 Maxima SE auto.

At a highway onramp he was behind me and I was casually accelerating to the speed limit. All of a sudden he just floored it and started to pass me, in the time it took me to downshift he already had 1/2 a car on me but I was spooled up in no time and started to reel him in. I got about a fender on him and was walking away but then my turbo to IC coupler slipped off and blew by me, i got screwed. Took the first exit, fixed the coupler and went on my way.


Before my swap a Honda Accord - wagon. I was like, wow time to swap. Since then, I've only lost to a modified MKIV Supra and modified E40 M3.

I'm guessing it was a typo but there is no E40 M3, they are E30, E36, E46, and coming soon E92.

I cant say it was my worst beat but this is the only thread open. I got beat the other day by a fully modded CRX. When I say fully modded I mean lexan hatch and quarter windows and bare interior with an aluminum dash and a turbo. The car had to weigh 1500lbs if that.

I blew off on him like any other rice boy. He changed lanes and got on my ass. As soon as the lane opened up he got beside me and it was on. I dropped it to 4th and he slowly started pulling on me. We went from 60-100 at the end his rear was at my front bumper. Once it was over I got beside him and gave him the thumbs up. I donít know weather to give him props or what considering he has me by 1000lbs. He was pulling on me but not that hard. Either way it was fun.

LOL....I'd say every car, as I don't "race." I have fools in their rice Civics or Saturns or Neons or Escorts or whatever pull up next to me and do the whole rev engine/dead stare/etc BS.... I let them smoke their tires, leave quickly, and I'm done with their sorry asses. I could absolutely not care any less. I drive my car to entertain myself, nothing more - I let these fools be the "rabbit" that flushes out the "fuzz" before I get on up the road. Am content with a perfect driving record.....so far ;) Hell, I'm thinking my wifes '05 Corolla S might be about as fast as my Celi....and get a whole lot better mpg at the same time. It "seems" quick, at times...handles well....just can't compare to the "cool east TN morning with the top down on the way to work on the back country roads" experience my '92 GT vert offers :cool:

Mrs. Fuelish has, in fact, designated my car as "cool" and hers as "sexy/slice'n'dice/funner" . She even went as far as to name my car, something I've never done.... it's a super white GT vert...she named it "Tic Tac " (.....it could be worse ;) )
