Default 92 EG versus 08 Scion XB

So it was really late at night, on an empty freeway and i seen this brand new xb (the really ugly ones). Well, i'm cruising at about 80-85 (Average speed) and i was coming up on his lane... and just as i got to him, he downshifted and took off. So naturally i'm not one to hesitate and i dropped it into 4th.

Anyway, i was blown away because he had actually started inching on me and pulling away. I felt disgusted that a scion xb could beat my car...

Basically took it to the top of 4th and he just kept pulling inch by inch.. By the time i hit the top of 4th (~115) he had put about 3 cars between myself and him. I decided to let off as i had already flown by my exit.. haha.

The whole race only lasted around a minute, and by the time it was over i was dissapointed.

But then i found out that the new xb's have 160hp camry engines and i was shocked i even kept up how i did.


Yes yes, street racing is bad, but i didnt do it around traffic in any way.. again, empty freeway. late at night. no witnesses...

Short story, i kept up with a 160hp car (mostly) in my little untuned sohc!

yeh, but the XB weighs a ton compared to an EG, Power to weight is the key. The XB has the same engine as the TC as well, Im not sure how well you would do against a 5spd TC..... THey weigh alot too, so you might out run one of those as well

Shouldn't be a problem for him.

I myself ran 2 Tc's.

1st one was an auto from a 45 roll. Pulled him 3 cars and shut down at 90.
2nd was a 5 speed trd edition with intake from a dig. Got him 3 times atleast by 2 cars.

hmmm... my mazda walks mine and my friends hondas with similar mods to yours in similar cars. i got walked in that same mazda by a tc with boltons from 50-110 ... tc's are rated around low 15s in the 1/4 and a dx/lx is going to have a damn hard time winning that race. plus power to weight ratios are similar, but the tc's have a lot more torque. those new xb's are misleading arent they haha the old ones were stupid slow

ive had a TC with a big exhaust and intake(thats all that i can tell) run up on me in the sol. I stayed in 3rd gear and he was comin ahrd on me. by the time we stopped, he was only like 2 cars ahead. im almost positive i could beat him if i had shifted it into 2nd or from a dig.

Yeah, i remember that i raced a TC before i did my manual swap, i did an 80 drop (into 3rd gear, auto) and beat him till around 100. At that time my car shifted into fourth and couldnt keep pulling hard, no power... TC cruised by me like nada.

I'll find a tc one of these days to rematch and eat alive with the new si tranny

Question

Arent those new xb's 600 lbs heavier also. Even though it has the camrys 2.4 some of the magazines said it's gain was offset by the added weight. Anybody ever race an Element?

Raced a TC at the track about 3 weeks ago. On my MK1 MR2 (Stock). Got me off the line but pretty much stayed with him. Not very fast. I know he had an exhuast.

Tc's are balls slow.My gf drives an 08. 160hp and about as much torque in a 2900 pound car car.The supercharger upgrade is nice but thats about it speed wise,unless you go turbo.The interior is pretty pimp though, reclining rear seats and dual sun roofs ftw. I think car&driver road tested one to 15.7-15.6 bone stock and the 0-60 is also faster then the new si (which also kinda sucks)
