Well I have had my GTS for about a week now so i figured its time to start romping on it. My first race was my buddies 03 Nissan Sentra Spec V(I/E) He immediately pulled from me off the line, and I didnt start catching up way until the end of 3rd gear. End results Spec V>Me(about 1 1/2 cars) Second race my friends, friends, friend lol Tuscani V6? I am not sure about mods but I know it was a 5spd and it had a dual exhaust. It pulled on me through every gear leaving me about 2+ cars or so.It sounded mean though..... Overall I am stock so I didnt plan on beating anyone, but I did have fun and learned more about my car. How did I do???? Thanks

i gotta agree with silver21 not to throw insults out ther but u need to learn ur car a lil better. spec v's should b no prob and the v6 tiburons rnt much better but u gotta remember the gt-s is a tough car to perfect the driving on. it takes time a week is not long enugh to properly drive it but once u learn those cars shouldnt b that much of an issue good luck

They didn't underate the engine that much. It should be in the 170's hp wise.

A Spec V is a drivers race in the 1/4 with the launch edge to the Spec V. Believe it or not.

I find the Tiburon has more after market than the Celica.

Secondly. we are not talking about a tiburon. We are talking about a Tucson. A 3500 LB (for the awd) CUV that uses the same 170 HP 2.7L V6 that the Tibby does with 700 more lbs.

The Spec V I can see, the Tucson, unless this guy dumped thousands of dollars in it, is sadly slower than a GTS. Something is wrong or someone needs to practice.

A whole ****ing lot.

he said TUSCANI..which is what all the tib owners rename their car (apparently thats the more suave name for it?) And having more aftermarket than the celica is saying what ? In all honesty?? (not trying to be funny)

Why is it renamed that?

Also, that is what I meant about the Tibby. It has more after market than the Celica, yet the Celica has no after market. Sad, sad day in Toyota Fanboy world.

I suppose but I guess they knew if they rolled around with KDM that they would get flack for that...so Tuscani answers the call of originality

Ha. Pretty soon you will get people in Celica's wanting KDM/Tuscani Parts.

yea except the fact after basic bolt ons the aftermarket kinda falls on its face....that and the weak ass supercharger they sell for it....Doesnt help stock that power falls off REAL EARLY....makes all its torque in like the first 3000 rpms but doesnt hold it steady for the next 4000...now the Spec V that's a car with a strong aftermarket and a good power curve

I believe the Tiburon doesnt even get up to 7K does it? Either way, they run low 15's to begin with in a 6 speed and semi low to mid 15's in a 5 speed. I really dont see why they are so hated. They do respond very well to mods, they arent as heavy as one would think and they are as reliable (03 +) as any other car.
