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

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.
