Post Confrontation with another Celica GTS/Integra

Hello everyone. Just thought that I would post a little story, that happened to me on my way to work tonight. Now, before I get burned, No cars, no people, no animals were in the vicinity, clear skies, dry night, in a business district. If anyone is familiar with the Jamboree exit in Irvine CA, from Main St to Barranca St is where this little shindig took place. I exit off the 405 and turn left and go to the first light (Main St) and low and behold what rolls up next to me, some kids in an Integra LS (not even a GSR,Type R) rolls along my right side packed with 4 people, dropped to the ground with a kit and some 18" Racing Heart C5's. The car looked pretty tight, and on my left side rolls up a Celica GTS with 3 kids in it also dropped, couldn't tell what kind of wheels it had on, but it also was lookin really tuff. Looked like they were goin to a party. These guys were together, as they both looked at me and each other revving their engines and making gestures as if they wanted to race. WELL,WELL,WELL... I couldn't let these poor guys down now could I? As the opposing light turned yellow, we all started the rev process, I went to 4000 RPM, These guys were also getting ready for lift off, purfect sound of exhaust tunes, together in a deep melody is all I could hear, that light turned red, and ours goes green, I drop the clutch an all I could hear was both cars peeling out, and I mean bad!!! Needless to say, I totally annialated <---Spelling? these guys out of the hole. By the time they were rolling I was already about 8 car lenghts ahead of them. The Celica is pretty fast once it gets going. I slow down to stop at Mcgaw (red light) and now these kids roll down their windows and ask me if my car was turbocharged/Squeezing. Yeah right, I wish, was all I could say. The driver of the Teg was a little embarrased, as I just welded his doors shut with all his friends in the car, and made an excuse to say that I'm lucky that he had a bad start, and challenges me again. We wait for the light to turn green, and he takes off a little better this time, as I only got about a 5 car length on him, HAHAHA we race all the way to Barranca. And the Pinoy Jedi strikes again We pull off to the McDonalds parking lot and they Check out my ride and give me props on how it looks/performs. One kid stated that he is gonna get the turbo next year, I guess more people in the import scene are starting to get down with the Subies!!! Coool! Well they were some pretty cool cats and they invited me to the party they were going too, but like I said I was on my way to work. I politely declined and was on my merry way. I did tell them though, that if we were on the freeway that they would eventually catch up and pass me at about 120 MPH. I told them about the web site and they said they would check it out. So Reynaldo if you see this, just thought I'd share this with everyone, and say whats up to you and your friends. They're pretty cool on this board. Oh Yeah, not all Honda owners are riceboys.

Check out my ride---> Members/CA/San Pedro (wassup Donald/TMR, Pedro in the House!!!

Note to self:

Never race anybody when your car contains an extra 500 pounds of people.

I beat the pants off my friend in his SHO on our way to lunch the other day because he had 3 200 pound passengers. Including the driver, that brought his curb weight up to like 4000 lbs!

My nephew recently tolds me that my RS feels faster by seat-of-pants than the SHO I traded for it, and all I have done is a modified intake (www.ImprezaRS.com).

I think my SHO was a bit faster, what does he know. Definitely helps to shove the passengers out the door before the light turns green though!

He Pinoy!

I drive around that part of Irvine a lot also. I think that Jamboree past Barranca (Eastbound) is great for speeding. It really amazes me that the Impreza can't go faster than ~125 mph. I was in Germany recently and even tough my rental car sucked (Toyota Avansis = 1.6 liter ~100 hp) I redlined the car in 5th gear and was going 140 mph on the autobahn... Oh, well!

If that kid is going to get "the turbo" - what's he doing riding around in his friend's car now? It seems like there's a lot of Gonnas, and not so many drivers.

-kinda OT

Man, you should feel lucky! Atleast you have a car from a company that shows interest in the aftermarket (TRD)!

Question

Wasn't there some rumor that a turbo AWD Celica was being considered for North America? If that's true, I may get a Scooby Sedan, and get the Celica AWD for my coupe instead... I love the lines of the new Celica, but the FWD only and lack of turbo makes it a no go in my book.

and no, I don't mean the 1980's Celica All Trac... I already knew about that.

That AWD turbo celica would probably be high 20s low 30s since the GTS goes for low-mid 20s.

Hey, Pinoy are those Konigs the right offset? Did you need to roll the fenders to fit them?

edit: Celica's are sick, I'd take a black GTS.

Hey Pinoy, where in Irvine do you work? My office is right off of Beckman. If you guys are in the irvine area, my company drives those white station wagons around, with 'Consolidated Reprographics' all over them.

Nice kill Pinoy! More proof that hp is nothing without traction. It's always good to get respect from owners of other brands, rather than to have them dis you because you own a better car.
