"shifted into second, spun like crazy(like 2 secs, damn 175's cant handle the 128 lb ft of torque lol, yea..)"
"Is the "Action Package" the Celica GTS? Cuz if it is, you must either have some major mods on your car, or else the Celica driver was really shitty. A stock Celica GTS should beat a stock Prelude VTEC (4th or 5th gen) given equal driver skill."
"You guys talk a lot of sh*t about Toyota. First off I don't know what you've heard, but you got it backwards. The Celica action package is a dealership offer for the GTS, and you can get it ordered for the GT... Not the other way around. I've already seen like four GTS in one day with action packages, seen the engines, seen the badging. Oh and the GTS that Car and Driver ran 16 flat on, had a premature 7500 rpm limiter that was a glitch in the car's ecu. How fast would GSR's be if you had to shift at 7300 rpm in every gear?
Oh and like I said, it's not the hp that makes a GTS fast, it's the close ratio'd six speed tranny.
A Celica GTS stock with the 78-7900 rpm limiter that it's supposed to have will run an easy 14.9-15.0 flat in the 1/4 with interior and stock tires. My guess is that the guy didn't know what the heck he was doing. This is why I almost beat an Integra GSR in the 1/8th when I was stock with my slow a$$ car... The other guy said he was dropping the clutch at 2,000 rpm flat because he didn't want to peel out for a long time. (what a dumba$$)
In a Celica GTS if you don't drop the clutch at anything about 4500 rpm, you're looking at 8.2 0-60 and 15.9/15.8 1/4 mile time. oh and the Celica GT runs 15.8 at the 1/4. .1 of a second slower than the 160 hp Civic Si. I said I didn't like the GTS because it's over-rated, but I never said that it's slow. It's slow the majority of the time because no one knows how to drive it. The only Honda/Acura that can take it STOCK FOR STOCK... Is an RSX Type S, (maybe) Integra Type R, NSX and S2000.
They CAN be very fast if you put the right driver behind the wheel of one. My friend's ran consistent 15.1's stock at the track. Once on a real good day, (temperature, engine condition) he ran 14.9, his is a stock 2000.
The Car And Driver times for the 2000 factory sold Celica GTS is 0-60 in 6.8 and 14.8 at the 1/4"
at least someone know's what they are talking about.
