my buddy just got a 2005 scion tc 5 speed lil thing is pretty quick. he ran a turbo celica built very shitty and actually took the win. now he keeps bugging me to race my auto slow ass lx. now i gotta find a way to get this lil civic quicker before aug. hmmmmmm i feel some weight being pulled hehe. and hopefully the track isnt really sticky cuz he spins pretty bad and my civic dont spin at all. these kumho ast ku24s arnt as bad as i thought. but newayz just sorta suprised me the thing is as peppy as it is it. and i dont know why i posted this just sotra bored as hell and not tired.

they are only 160hp....must have been a really fubared turbo celica. They do have 160 torque though too so I have to give them that...but they still weigh more than your civic so you would have a fighting chance if you weren't auto....

we took them to the scales tonight he is 2880 and im 2760 with a full tank and some crap in the car. these fgs are pig heavy. and ya the celica was bad body kit 18s the whole 9 yards and exhaust sounded like ass and no IC in front and barely a blow off valve but he did have the a/f gauge and the boost gauge. also i know i wont get the bottle before the run but i also know next year at this show he wont stand a chance even with me being a auto hehe. but thats not for another 13 months. and the race is just for fun newayz i wanna see how slow the civic is newayz im thinking 17.1 but i aint sure.

found that on a car and driver thing they came car came with the TRD intake and exhaust so im sure that helped a very small amount but for a auto civic thats 2760 pounds is going to die at least for now. i have rear of ppl running 17.1 down to 16.6 in these new auto civics so we will see.

With our test monkey behind the wheel, the tC managed to eke out a 15.7-second quarter mile at 88.2 mph at the track, just as we originally predicted. Remember, the car also weighs close to 3,000 pounds. Thanks to a relatively generous torque curve, 0-to-30 mph was achieved in just under 3 seconds. At higher velocities the 2AZ-FE begins to pant a little, taking more than twice as long to go from 60 to 100 as it does to go from 0 to 60, which it manages in 7.8 seconds.

ran with a auto tc tonight he pulls just a bit the whole time but i kept up decent though 3rd. he wouldnt leave me alone i wasnt goin to run him but he wouldnt bck down all the way to my house. but i think the 5 speed should own my ass this year but next hes goin down. cuz by then they might make more shit for my civic haha.

^^^^that is the dumbest thing ive heard today...
"i'd destroy them in turns"....
so yea guys when we get to a light lets accelerate and see who can stop faster....you really need to stick to video games...cause real life, it must be kinda hard for you considering your slow..

i'm sorry if i'd prefer to race two cars on a race course rather than a straight line to see what they're made of, thats my opinion and i didnt deserve that degrading comment

so If anyone on here sees you post how you will never drive your car on the highway and never ever try to race from a light and get owned....
because you would rather race them around the cornor...

Im not sorry because the simple fact is...no one...except those that learned everything from a cereal box...will admit they lost on the street...and if they do..they make the ricer comment of "oh Ill race you around the next bend.."
:hammer:
anyone else on this site that has at least two brain cells to rub together will agree, that if you accept a race..or challenge someone while just driving along...its not "in the twistys" its a straight line...highway, from a dig..
I bet you challenge people that you can outbrake them to the next light dont you?
