Wow, that's pretty amazing...the only guy I know in the 13s with a GTS that posts on ClubWRX can't match your numbers..he needs DR's and weight reduction.Originally posted by crazycelica
good race man against the gts....You should have put more than a car on him during the launch...The STI is one damn sexxy car I test drove it and man its nice. But yeah, a sti vs a celica is no contest...maybe from a roll it would be close but still the STI has the upper hand. I'm not sure about high speed, 100 and up.
As you all probably can tell, I have a celica and I have gone 14.0 at the track and have trapped anywhere from 98-101 mph with just intake/exhaust/header. This was done without any weight reduction such as taking out the seats and what not. I believe in running at the track what I run on the street. Well now that I have the powerfc, I'm guessing, I'm in the mid-high 13s. I'm making about 194 to the wheel at the moment and am shooting to get 200 whp. I have raced a lot of wrx in the past and it would usually have an outcome of this:
at the launch, wrx puts carlengths on me but at the end of 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, i'm gaining back the distance and then I would continue to pull. It is always a close race. On the freeway though, its another story. I would pull from 60 and upward. I haven't raced a STI on the highway yet but I have raced an EVO and I have pulled on him. It was a stock evo so I know that once its modded, its a different story.
Well here is a little video I put together enjoy.
You're telling me you'll hit mid to high 13s with just I/H/E/PowerFC, no DR's or weight reduction? Wow..simply amazing. Good to see you guys pushing the gauntlet. Fact is though, you're probably the exception to the norm, just like the RSX guy that hit 13.8 with I/E/Hondata.
And you're pulling on Evos with 194whp? Wow, what traps do you think you're running now? Must be higher than 102-104mph..that's really nice man.
