that's why im thinking of getting new cars like rx-8 or evo8
i like these since the insurance is cheap. and they are fast. and these are the car you just leave it alone, you don't have to do anything to it.
it already comes with nice seats, power, interior, rims, brake, wings and everything you need.
unlike celica where you have to do a lot to make it stand out. i spend about 4g and i barely stand in the crowd.
but i do love my celica. its close call.

with a few mods, less than $3K, you will be running decent times, that is if you don't have an auto.

Plus, WTH is the point of street racing and drag racing all the time.

The Celica is a better car to drive altogether, I don't know about you, but I enjoy cruising more than racing

the celica looks good but its a little slow i for its looks grin

becuase peepz race me all the time becuase they fhink its a real bad ass and they maby wannt to see how mutch they get owned or somfhing and its a little enbarrising standing side by side with another car that is a potesiall racer so i usally stop 1-2m behind his front window so he wannt look over to me.

so thats way i fhinking of selling the car and buy an more comfort car instead of a sport car.

and buy the way i have a gt and i never get owned it allways is close run (but then again they have like fammily cars and stuff so i fhink they wudd consider them self ass the winner grin)

Dasports Turbo. You can have fun draggin with that. You can get the celica to a safe 300hp with Turbo and the right mods.

If you wanted to race, then why did you buy a GT? Don't blame the car because you were too cheap to buy a GTS. On the other hand, the GTS is getting blown away by the competition too. I have a friend with a WRX sti and he is getting 340 HP out of it. How does the Celica stand a chance against something like that? My friend probably has 40 grand invested in his WRX, while I have only put in 24 grand into my stock Celica GTS. If I put another 16 grand into my GTS I could probably keep up with him. Money = speed!!

I think we need more details. lol

Whats your engine, transmission?

That makes a huge difference. If its a GTS and stick, and you're racing cars in your class...you should not get OWNED.

So details man, do you have any mods? Intake or exhaust? Weight reductions? There is allot you can do.

I have an 03 GTS 6sp with a few modest mods and I've handed plenty of Hondas, VWs, and yes and even an RX8 their ass before, and I've been handed mine plenty of times by more powerful cars as well. Which is why I read allot and try to size up my opponent so I can pick my battles. Celica is far from the fastest thing on the road, but I wouldnt go as far as calling it slow.

As was stated above Speed = Money, how fast do you want to go. If drag racing is your main thing then sure, definitely think about upgrading to something like an Evo VIII or WRX STi.

Well, I wouldn't say my manual GTS is slow because with the power FC(900), AEM Intake(200), TRD exaust(500), and DC Header($300)not trial, too expensive... for around $2,000 my car can hang with the big boyz... and look pretty damn sexy to me!!!

If you're into looks and nice speed, keep the celica

If you want real speed, buy a Grand National

Want to go fast in a straight line?

1. Buy a CRX, B16A2, 3rd gen Drag Turbo kit, and a Hondata system. Remove everything but the motor/tranny, steering wheel, and driver seat. Go drag racing.

2. Buy an old muscle car, have it stroked and bored, get an insane cam, and a gigantic blower. Don't forget to 13" drag slicks. thumbsup

Indeed the celica is for the circuit, what kind of cars are you racing? because if your reving a 71' Mach 1, guess what, you're gunna lose. Pick your fights if you want to race, engine classes exist for a reason, the celica isn't the fastest car on the road but it's a nice car...allow me to put it this way...
Celica's look nice, for the quarter in their class they can hold their own, but they aren't made for that, they're made so that regardless of whether you win or lose you look damn good doing it.

You have any track experience?...I thought I was pretty good at racing my car before I went to the track...you don't really learn how to race the car till you spend a few days at the track learning to launch and shift proficiently. The celica is a lot different than most cars because of the necessity of landing lift above 6400. For this reason, it takes a lot more skill to drive one well or quickly.

Street racing is crap...fun, but doesn't help you learn anything since you don't get a timeslip.

I suggest that you go to the track to see whether it is the car that is slow...or your driving skills.
