And what do you guys think of that ride? are they any good with gas and performance?
140 HP. About as fast as an EX coupe. Very tight handling. If I were looking for a medium power FWD coupe, I'd seriously consider the Celica GT.
What about the GT-S? any differenc in HP?
Dude, www.edmunds.com tells you specs of any production car.
It took me 2 minutes to find that the GT-S has 180 hp at 7600 rpm and 130 ft. lbs of torque at 6800 rpm.
GT-S = 180 HP and a six speed, however the gearing is spaced so far that you have to wind it out right up to the rev limiter to keep it in the "high cam" when you shift. It's kinda like a 5 speed with a 6th super tall O.D. gear tagged on it.
i found one in my price range.only thing is, its white in color. lookin at kbb.com i should be able to do an even trade for it if i take my grand prix in. if so, i'll get it.if not, fuck it i'll just hold on to what i have.
All i know is the Celica GT and GT-S are two of the best handling FWD cars out there. They have great style and plenty of power.
I would not go that far. ITR's, Mini coopers, CRX's have much better handling characteristics (sp?) then a celica. Dont get me wrong, they do handle nice but not that nice.
Are celica parts available everywhere just like honda parts are?
thats just my opinion though
you can find toyota parts pretty easily too yes
CRX's handling ownz j00!
Well yeah, I'm sure those two can hold their own, I didn't say Celicas were the absolute best handling cars, they're just two of the better choices if you're into autoXing or just whipping around corners on the street pretty quickly.
Fuckin A stock sways and traction bars ( at least on the ED9's)
i have known a few people with GT-Ss
the tranny SUCKS ASS on those cars .... they dont take well to agressive driving at all .... i watched one kid go through 4 trannys in about 6 months.... two other people needed a new tranny within the first year
just your opinion?????? FYI, there is something called a skidpad and also something called a car's lateral acceleration expressed in G's.
