if every car you 'beat' sucks, where does your car rank?

stock 7th gen auto gt should go mid 16 in the 1/4, stock
stock 5th gen 5speed gt, should go 17 in the 1/4, stock

so either you've modified your car, the 7th gen was running badly, or he didn't know/care you were racing him.

either way, nothing to be bragging about

all i know is my tib would pull away from a gt easily and id take a gt-s till about 70-80ish

and that was out of a 2600lb car that had 140 140, well it had a lil work to it but nothing specail, and i had a 2.0 4cyl

I hope you are talking about an auto GT-S. A manual GT-S would school you by several cars by the time the GT-S is half way through 2nd gear.

oh i forgot a had some minor headwork, air ram intake pletium, and a big bore tb

yeah id pull away from a manual gt-s, then we be even till about 65, then by 80 he would be in front

an auto gt-s id be ahead till 80, and he would creap ahead lil by lil once the vvtli kicked in

A properly driven manual GT-S would smoke that Tiburon no matter how many bolt-ons you had. You came face to face with a bad driver. Congratulations.

no way in the world is that possible,my roommates gts 6spd with bad clucth, left a 05 celica gt auto 3 cars from first to 3 third about(80 mph), sorry man but that guy is the worst driver of the year. gt-s is quick, that when that lift kicks in bye bye tiburo. not picking on you thats just the truth.also with my roommates gts has beaten new preludes,crx b18 dohc vtec,golf 1.8turbo dead even till 80mph then celica pulls away 1 car , 97 golf vr6 2.8 on the highway, i even have some videos etc.... so there is no way you had a chance. ask vip09......

yeah i def. agree with celicatrd...ironically i was at a light last week and i pulled away from a tiburon very quickly (with him instigating, revving at the line), you don't have to wait 'till 80 to have the lift kick in..... kicks in around any time you rev up somewhere near 6500 and with stock exhaust or not, you'll know it kicks hah just by the sound... by 3rd i was pulling way ahead of him to the point where he didn't even accl. anymore, he just coasted, gave up pretty much. but also i believe he was driving an auto. celica>tib.

Here's some weird trivia for you all....

The 7th gen GT Auto is faster than the 7th gen GTS Auto.

5th gen GT running 17s?

The last time i got the GT in the 17s was bogging on the launch, missing second AND third.
