black road runner pretty much summed it up. OP, the 1 big thing that you aren't thinking of is drivetrain loss. Take 40% off of your 173hp (that's 69hp if you're wondering), and that is what you are actually putting down to the ground. I hate to burst your bubble, but a stock Corolla won't have much of a problem keeping up with you. If the TC was really racing, the only thing that you would see is his tail lights.

I know...depressing.
