so me and my good friend were rollling at about 20mph. and he wants to race, and so we both hit the gas about the same time. he accelerated faster and stayed ahead. this wasnt a real race but i want to know if some factors will cause me to lose or him to win the next time we actually race.

-he's rolling with 17's and me stock 16's. will bigger rims make the car faster since its a bigger roll?

- he got AEM V2 cold air and i got Injen SRI (maybe i was sukcing in nuthing but hot air...)

-his sound system is a lot lighter than mine. (i'm running 3 amps and 2 12's. he has one 15" and 2 amps.)

-are celicas lighter?

Dude face it YOU GOT OWNED!!!.. No biggie . V2 or CAI , loose some weight (in the car), mabey a catback exhaust system. He'll be runnin for the hills LOL. Celicas are way over rated. Tell him if He wants to race come on down to the Carolinas. We'll smoke his ass southern style!! (gear shift in right hand, knee on the wheel, and left hand eatin some gritts)

WOW!!!! This IS FREAKING OLD!!!! I'm sure the celica broke down by now or the owner got rid of it! Also CAI is what you need!

I had a 2000 auto celica gt. I looked sweet (had TRD lip kit), handled awsome, and decent acceleration from a 1.8l. Until i stuck a short ram on there, the heatsoak OWNED that car. Which is why i chose CAI for my RSX. My brother has the Celica now, and is trying to mod it too. He has header, SRI, and axle-back. And thinks he can hang with me. I have CAI, and exhaust. We are going to get a few races on video, so i can shut him up.

how can a GT auto beat an RSX surely got me ponder. I got a stock EP and I owned GT (auto or not)... bad. GT hp is lower than the RSX TQ number, how it beats you don;t really make anysense.

If you have a bad driver in the RSX then you can easily lose to a celica
