Yep, then save for an I/E... then you can actually "beat" the STi... well a stock one anyways! But hey, as a fellow GT owner, I have faith in ya, and our cars! I'd say go for modding your GT, and keep us updated thumbsup

Good luck beating an STi

I raced one on the freeway one time, and before I even had time to downshift, start to race he was 5, 6 cars ahead of me and creeping away! eek

and sung with exultation
To know even one life has breathed easier
This is to have succeeded.

you will never beat one off the line. the STi is superior to the celica.

I'm gonna have to agree with Steven - a WRX-STi is just a whole different level of vehicle. Probably the second best tuner car in the market. Mitsu Evo being the top.

hmm aiite maybe the STi is a superior car, besides the fact thats its an AWD and it'll take anycar off the line, the celicas VVTL-i will take it on the freeway, and just add a lil 7 thousand dollar blitz charger bolt on with a blitz racing clutch and all the goodies, that probably comes out to a total of... 11 thousand, our GTS should be able to take a STi thumbsup

Who really gives a fuc* if it can beat an STi on the freeway? Who races on the freeway for christ sake and who cares if you win. Freeway/street racing is illegal, period. thumbsdown

Due to the fact that this thread is absolutely pointless, it is now closed.
