the Type R is still the champ.

the GSR is second to the GTS.

ITR > GTS > GS-R

but thats comparing the US specs.

since there is not US spec M-Sport thats not feasible.

ITR (US) > GTS > GS-R

now

ITR (J-Spec) > M-SPORT > ITR (A-Spec) > GTS > GS-R

What does the M-Sport give you that is different than the GTS? More HP or something? Any links to this, or even pics?

I use to have this old article. At the end it says something to the effect that the new Celica is no Type R killer. So the Celica loses.

No. Just a GTS. I could beat him in a straight line when I was stock...and he pwned me on the auto X course. Mostly because I had 580 treadwear tires and he had 200... Once I got some 280 treadwear tires I was only 1 sec behind him. Not bad considering that I had a totally stock suspension...no LSD...no strut bar... (he had all these things.) Technically, he shouldn't even be in my class...(STS), because he has a helical LSD. But, he knows the local guys so they let him race my class.

Now that I have my suspension done up all the way he can't touch my times. Of course I am just speculating...he is to chicken to come out and auto X now that my car is "done up." thumbsdown

You can not compare an Integra Type R and a GTS. The Type R is leaps and bounds ahead of the Celica on a track.

Pout about it all you want, but it's the truth.

wait, it said that there were no challenges for the Type R, what aboutt the All-Trac (5 Gen)? that surely would kill a type R.

here's my new listings:
(6th Gen) GT-Four > ITR (JSpec) > M-Sport > ITR (US-Spec) > GTS > GSR
