their pretty fast do you have to give anything up in return for loosing???? if not then stop talking about it and take him on. i haven't taken one on yet but i would in a heart beat, just by simple numbers you should beat him

GTS
1.8L
180 hp
something like VTEC, that kicks in at like 6500, so way into the rpm band

Prelude

2.2L
200hp
VTEC that kicks in at 5200 rpm
weight is about the same

if you get a good launch and i would also reset your ecu before running him, you should win.

GO FOR IT MAN, YOUR TALKING ABOUT FREE HAIRCUTS FOR A YEAR AND NO DOWNSIDES THAT YOU'VE TOLD US ABOUT YET!!!!!

...im not gonna comment about ur facts. The celica weighs 2500 lbs. The prelude weighs in nearly at 3000 lbs. That is 500 lb difference. Also, about the way up the power band thing, the Celica also revs higher than the Prelude. Stock for stock, equal drivers, equal conditions, if the Celica is NOT a 2000, it will take the Prelude.

Um also I don't know a prelude that is rated 200 stock, it's 190 am I right? Also the toyota's motors have (like stated above something like vtec) it's called vvti, variable valve timing with intelligence. just thought I'd drop my 2 cents. The gts are no slouches but I would imagine it would be a little in favor of the prelude, but who knows I've never raced one.

i think he knows what hes talking about...after all he does have about 4 times the post as you so i dont think you should be telling him what he already knows and the preludes....i believe 97-99 has 190 and 00-01 has 200...at the crank of course

the celica is lighter than the lude, i ask an opinion...i have all the confidence in me, my driving ability and car and if i happen to lose then so be it....im not afraid to lose...theres always gonna be someone out there better than you.....no big deal:rolleyes:

now if i can just get a hold of him we can run.....and no theres no downsides....just all out race



on another note....can someone tell me why the hell im getting crazy torque steer when i launch????

Oh my, I forgot a post count means your level of experience and knowledge I must have forgot, you can keep your cheesy post count and stick it. What a punk.:rolleyes:

no post counts dont mean your level of experience but he definitely knows what hes talking about, you dont have to tell him what vvti stands for like hes a 3rd grader

and as for your last statement, no comment...

This is what statement I was refering to smart guy, the something like vtec, I wasn't even talking about your buddy's comment, but I guess this guy must be a third grader because he didn't seem to know huh? So make sure you know what you are talking about before you reply with some smart A$$ comment because as probably seen it just pisses people off.

So yeah and as for my previous post the last statement still stands. Punk!

my bad if i don't go and research the cars for six hours on my computer, then analyse the weight, then look at the power band compared to the weight, and then knock on a guy who was just trying to give some encouragement to a fellow luder, i was making a generalization a$$, i do know that it IS NOT a certainty that either car will win and if you think that then thats just ignorance man. by pure numbers its a drivers race.

We are all here hopefully to help each other, theres no way to know who knows what, and how much. The only way I see it is to not get offended if someone offers info on something they already know or don't know. So I say lets just chalk it up to a misunderstanding,
I call PEACE.
