he always wanted to run against me..... my mods are the follwing in the sig.... he has a 98 GS-T with a custom intake, test pipe, custom exhaust, and his boost is set at 14lbs..... well we hit a light and i revved to around 5k.... light turns green i slip and dump the clutch... had him by half a car at the launch and slowly pulled.... end 3rd i was about 2 cars ahead, when i hit 4th i saw his car had a jump, he pulled up a lil, now im about 1 1/2 car ahead and pretty much stayed like that untill 100 mph......

i was wondering, the best he ran at the track is a 14.7, now for instance when he ran me, say he was running a 14.7, what would i be running if i was about a car and a half ahead of him? or is there no way to determine?

not bad.. thats an expected kill.. 2G dsms (gsx, gst) with the stock t25 are very vulnerable.. no top end what so ever.. but interestingly enough.. i walked on a GTS in my 4th gear on the freeway.. i also beat a type r 4th gear pull.. (both kills starting @ 4th gear 3.5-4k rpm).. make sure he doesnt change his turbo.. even as small as the stock 14b on 1g dsms.. cause then u wont have a chance.. i know how it is.. i had a gts.. and now have a dsm.. ;)

i would.. and i did.. and i'd do it again.. looks + power + potential = 97-99 Eclipse GST/GSX.. i'd give it to the celica for handling.. as far as quality.. if ur talking about the motor built.. yes, because of the known (hyped up not really a normal occurance) c-walk issues.. if we had the build/quality 4G63 that were in the EVOs.. that's a different story.. u dare not question those.. :) FI ownz.. my .02

A car and a half would put you around a 14.55. Basically around 1/10th a second for every car.

Good kill. Ya, the T-25 is way to small to perform well in it's stock form. The crappy turbine doesnt pull to redline, so it really doesnt help with how heavy the car is already. True you guys got better handeling, but I dont think I'd trade my car in for a Celica. Don't get me wrong I love the stock body of the Celica, but I think if i had to do my car all over again I would have opt'ed for a WRX or at worst a f'ugly 1st gen Eclipse. Tell you're friend he needs to get an aftermarket BOV, cuz with 14lbs of boost on a stocker 2nd gen BOV, he's leakin like a mo-fo and probably why he can't get lower than a 14.7.

happy racin'

That's hard to say, because he may not have ran the same 14.7 when he ran u. Like you said, you had him at launch, so his launch may not be as good as the one when he got his best of 14.7.

Stock Turbo 2nd Gen DSM's and Stock WRX's are pretty kileable if you are in a GTS and a good driver.

exactly wat everybody should realize... but they should also know.. with as much someone pays for a body kit painted on a celi.. they'll be running low 13s/12s..
