dude, you drive an STI. you cant compare the 2 cars. you are talking about a 300hp 2.5 turbo against a 1.8 N/A 4cylinder.Originally posted by renichms
100-102 doesn't impress me. I've topped that before and can easily do so again. For that car, it may be good, but in the big scheme of things, it's kinda maybe somewhat mediocre. From a roll, a Celica trapping 102 might give me a good run, but I'm still going to outright run away from it.
although the traps on the car is similar, i personally think its pretty impressive that a celica (pretty much known as a chic car) can run 13's and trap at those speeds with ecu and very basic bolt on's.
i think thats the point here. most foreign cars in this bracket, (type R, rsx-s, celica GTS) are all N/A 1.8L 4's and are running very stong times and even stonger traps. all the cars deserve mad respect IMO with using what they have. i have seen RSX's run mid 13's with bolt on's and same goes for the type R. some are hitting 13's with just I/E/HOriginally posted by smokey
RSX-S's trap at 100mph or higher with similar mods, so its still pretty even overall. Also, we are well below 13.7 w/out drag's N/A, so I fail to see what everyone is implying. RSX has a MUCH larger aftermarket, just leaps and bounds ahead of the Celi's right now.
And that one guy that hit 13.7, while extremely impressive, did it on DR's and was gutted down to 2400lbs. We have a few guys that hit those numbers w/out DR's and with basically the same bolt ons, while not stripping their cars out.
I give Celi's respect though, as I do most cars. They do a lot with 1.8 litres, that's for sure.
