test drove a GTS

well, yesterday i was kinda bored and i went to the toyota dealer where i got my gt. i talked to the guy who sold me the gt and asked if i could take a gts for a spin. he said sure, but all he had was the 4-speed auto w/ sportshift. it was wierd driving an all-stock celi, and for some reason, this car did NOT want to go at all. my gt auto was so much quicker. i had the petal to the floor (VERY cool sales guy) and it just bogged its way up to lift, then red-line. honestly, this one gts was a turd! i was dissapointed. (im not bashing or hating on all you gts owners...so dont get mad at me...)
now i know that the gts hits max torque at much higher rpms than the gt, but this was sad...maybe it's just the gts auto that's not so great... idunno
oh well. at any rate, just thought i'd share. grin wave
on a second note...ALMOST got to test drive a new 05 mustang...they're soooo pretty tasty but all the ones on the lot were already sold!

I'm sorry...that must have been a pretty disappointing experience...

I have a GTS 6-speed and i don't think it does anything that could be classified as 'bogging'...it feels pretty quick to me...maybe it had a few too many test drivers holding the pedal to the floor...

if you KNOW how to drive a manual car, i wouldnt mind. you gotta know wut lift really is. but unfortunately my rims are 17 chrome heavy shits, so its not the most powerful celica. plus i got no mod yet.
maybe if you got light wheels, i would like to put them on my car to see how quick it really is.

the power of 6speed is what makes a GTS quick, short gear ratio makes it easier to reach max hp & tiny tq and faster to hit lift... thumbsup

cool thumbsup I'm not saying gt owner don't turbo their celica. All I am saying here is NOT A LOT OF GT OWNER TURBO THEIR GT!!

auto gt

maybe this person who test drive the auto gts doesn't know how to used to sport shift because auto gts will destroy any auto gt and will hang with any stick gt and in the end they'll still have more cool standard opton such as ABS, 4 disc brake, sunroof, etc.

Autos are for fucking old cunts who are too lazy or too fat to change gear. They only make the shitty autos in the US. Everywhere else you just get the GT and the T Sport, both 6 speed (I think they both 6 speed anyway).
