Going to work this morning. I saw a Silver Celica GT in front of me. He had an AEM license plate holder so I figured he had some kind of mods. I could hear that his Celica was louder than stock when he passed me (I was waiting to merge into traffic). We come to a stop light to make a right hand turn (He's the first car to turn with me right behind him). He accelerates pretty hard into the inside lane of a three lane road. I accelerated pretty hard also into the right-most lane. I wasn't paying attention and I hit the REV limiter in 1st (I was looking at his car to see if he was serious or not), so I lost a whole bunch of momentum - so I start pushing hard in 2nd (he's about 2 car lentghs by now) and I start gaining on him really fast. Switch to 3rd and I'm about even now. He's got a Volkswagen 1.8T Jetta in front of him so he slowed down. I slowed down a bit, but then started gunning it again once I saw that the Jetta got out of his way. He's about 1-2 car lengths behind now. He had to turn off by making a left turn so that was that. Anyways, not a pure race since we were never even to begin with and I had to choke and hit the rev limiter. So the thing is, I know he most likely had an intake and maybe some other mods, but can a GT somewhat keep up with us? I have an uppipe, full turbo back exhaust, and CAI also. Eventhough I messed up in the beginning and admit that I'm not experienced in racing like this, can GT with mods capable of somewhat keeping up with me? It was a GT, not a GT-S or is it possible that he debadged the "S" off the GT-S emblem? I couldn't get a clean look at his rims or I would've known that way. Pardon my inexperience in racing - don't do it that often and I've owned a Nissan PU and Nissan Xterra prior to owning a REX. I'm embarassed to a degree eventhough I did catch up really fast and maintained a lead, but I didn't pull on him easily as I would've thought. I really hope it was a GT-S with a debadged "S"
