    Celica GT

    I just dont get it...I'm on my way back to my apt this morning, around 8:30 am, crusing in the middle lane, and this celica gt gets on my ass, and passes me in fly-by mode. I didnt think anything of it, so I just kept going. He pulls in front of me, and then starts pulling and slowing down, pulling and slowing down over and over. Now, with him being in front of me, he should have at least seen my FMIC, which leads me to believe he either a) doesnt know anything about cars or b) just wanted an ass whooping. So I obliged him, I was kinda in the mood anyway. To make a long story short, it was a real waste of time. As soon as I got on the throttle I was passed him. But here's the kicker...he kept coming back for more, doing the same **** over and over, and I kept walking him, blowing his gf kisses, etc. He just would not learn. After a while I finally came to my exit, and he didnt even look over. Maybe he was just a masochist, but I mean it was such a waste of gas.

    of course nobody wants to be embarassed in front of their gf, but I kept beating him. In fact, one of the times i let him go, caught up to him, and while he was at WOT trying his hardest I was blowing kisses at his gf, then I waved goodbye and pulled away (this was about half throttle at the top of 3rd)...whatever, I wouldnt have sought out a race with a celica, but if they want it, they can have it.

    I would think that getting owned over and over again would be more embarassing than not racing at all

    I know...i raced a modded gts when I used to have an IS300. We were pretty even throughout. A gts turbo would be an interesting match, but I havent come across any as of yet.

    when you drive a slower car, it somehow gets really tempting to pick on bigger fish just to see what they'll do. At least the way I am when I drive some other cars. He was asking for a beating

    i liked the part about blowing kisses

    Agree 100%. Now you're the big fish in a WRX and he's a small fish in his GT.

    This happened to me this Saturday. I was out with a few other cars; STi, WRX and 2 Evos and pulled into a Sunoco to fill out. This guy just got out from the shop and saw us. He proceeded to get into his GT (could of been a GTS)...counldn't tell from the side. But he had an exhaust on. He proceeded to peel out from his spot and also when turning out of the station. I thought it was the funniest thing.

    haha, yeah. But I must admit, if I saw an f50 filling up i would surely chase him. Not to say that I am an f50 compared to a celica, but still...

    its gonna be awhile before you see any GTSs with turbos...the vvti from toyota doesn't really go well with turbos ... it throws it off ALOT, so it'll just mess it up

    It must just be the celica engine then, because the IS300 has the vvti and guys are boosting them left and right.
