    I test drove a tC, but didn't get to see how it performed because of the salesman sitting next to me. It is a nice car, and I've seen many "girls" buying them and that joke-of-a-car, the Matrix.

    This is coming from a guy who drives a 98 Corolla CE... oh brother.

    FYI, the Civic SI is about $5,000 more than a tC. $5,000 in mods will go a looooooong way. Mazda 3 is a more decent competitor and they're close in performance but when you compare the equipment it comes with, for the 3 to even come close to a tC, it'll cost atleast $2,000 more.
    Then you compare a Mitata to a tC? Hmmmm... one car is extremely lighter than the other and drives the rear wheels. By the way, the Miata is about $4,000 more than the tC.

    I guess your Corolla oversteers a lot eh?

    You are full of shit. Your Corolla barely makes 115hp and does 0-60 in 10 seconds if you're lucky.

    You're one of these hating bitches who drive mommy's passed down Corolla and hates on people who have a better ride than them. If you're going to critique a car, atleast do so in a way that is CREDIBLE.

    What's next, you smoked a Viper in your Granny ride? LOL

    dude you stfu. the TC is not a performance car. it comes with a CAMRY engine. and does 0-60 in 0.5 seconds faster than my corolla. we raced em. and its HEAVY. its not a good platform IMO just because of that. i bet you never actually raced your car on a race course. my corolla is pretty balanced. when i crank up the tire pressure i can get it to oversteer pretty easily. and my friend doesnt mod cars. he's a loser who thinks that the TC is "hot" and thinks it'll get him chicks.

    i only do autocross. and i always beat all the TCs and so do all the 100 hp civics. its just not good for that kind of thing. i'm not saying that i drive a monstorously fast car, but its good for what i do with it. and if youre implying that the TC is a high-performance racing machine, then why is it FWD?

    A bone stock Scion does the 0-60 in 7.5 second. The only Corolla that's faster than that is the XRS. Take a hike.

    I guess yours is much better LOL.

    Ooooh, so you blasted thru the parking lot of Walmart after you got out from work and you think you're now part of the Andretti family. LOL

    The Corolla's weight distribution if about 60/40 F/R, so unless you drive your car while sitting in the trunk... your car is NOT balanced.

    Pulling on the e-brake isn't drifting. I think it's time you lay off the Initial D videos. I don't mean to spoil your fun but your corolla is NOT the same is his.

    Good for him, putting coffee can fart cannons don't do jack shit to your car.

    So I guess you surround yourself with people of your kind.

    1. actually i timed my 0-60 and got about 8.2 seconds.
    2. autocross is the number one motorsport in america.
    3. i moved stuff around and removed stuff to change the weight distribution, and my suspension setup causes my car to oversteer on trail braking. but you wouldnt know what that is
    4. I dont drift. drifting is for RWD cars. i dont own one.
    5. My friend is a 'loser' cuz hes a virgin ricer. hes a nice guy but hes a loser for thinking that a TC will get him pussy when in reality his forwardness scares all the girls away

    You sound like you're very bitter because your friend got a better car than you. Instead of being happy for your friend, you express hatred towards him. You little green eyed monster you. I guess you're still young and immature. Why if a friend of mine drives home in a GT3, I'd be happy for him. I guess that's the difference between boys and men.

    My, my, my you've certainly got a big mouth. Calling out a challenge from the internet. You know damn well that a race will never happen but you call it anyways. I guess it's the only way you can psych yourself into feeling better. Because in the back of your mind, you know you have a slow car so you make yourself believe that you have a supercar. It's time for you to grow up bro. Be happy for your friend and don't let envy eat you up.

    You don't press the start button when you're going 50mph dude.

    Typical ricer talk.

    Captain contradiction strikes again.

    If you're a girl, which car would you jump in?

    I rest my case.

    You seem to observe your friend so much. Have you tried to go fishing with him while herding sheeps?

    youre the one who started flaming me when you dont know sh*t about my car or what i do with it. i hate it when people like you ruin the boards. i know damn well what i drive and what it can and can't do. and all i said was that after driving the TC i was dissapointed. if youre in the northeast i dunno why this challenge cant happen

    Actually if you think you know shit about cars, would you mind telling me what you plan to do for your suspension? we'll see if you can say something meaningful instead of just flaming.


    "I plan to change my suspension and a TRD supercharger after the warranty expires. I'd go the turbo route but it's too much work for me. The supercharger would be a lot easier."

    All I know is that the only way your 98 CE will get to 60 in 8.3 sec is if you push it off a cliff.

    Ok, here goes. To lower my car to be 2inches from the ground, I'd ask you mom to sit in the back seat and your sister up in the front.

    Hmmm.... let's see. My car barely has 800miles and I'm already going to tear the engine apart?

    Let's see, I'm going to buy the S/C for $2,800 and install it myself and VOID the warranty. Oh wait, I can get Toyota to do it but I'd have to get screwed several thousand dollars for something I can do myself. Wow, you're a smart one.

    If you also don't know that a turbo charger requires more work than a S/C, I suggest you pick up on some reading. You should actually read the articles in Super Street magazines instead of just jacking off at the pictures of women and pasting your pictures next to the cars.

    Those personal attacks are seriously not cool.. Debaiting about car knowledge is one thing but whats up with insulting the guy's family among other things. IMO that's the last defense of a ignorant person in junior high school. You need to grow the fuck up.

    Maybe hes like you, and whines about having to pay Toyota to install the mods so it doesnt void your warranty.

    The Tc, the 3, and the Si are all pretty much on the same playing field. The Tc is heavy, so its handling is hindered because of it. Its the Paseo of 2006 :) Too much body roll. Him saying it understeers is the TRUTH, and him saying its not THAT much faster than his corolla is the TRUTH as well.


    I fail to see your point. Do you have one?
    And youre one of those hating bitches who gets their panties all up in a bunch when someone says something negative (SEMI NEGATIVE ON HIS PART) about your car.
    And if youre going to critique someone on this board, do so in a way that is MATURE and doesnt make you look like a 13 year old punk little kid.







    Speaking of young and immature.....you seem to have missed his entire point. He wasnt impressed with the Tc. Its your fault if you make the assumption that him not liking the Tc correlated to him being jealous. If he wasnt impressed with the Tc, why would he be jealous. And are you claiming to be the man here? Yeah, ok.
    And I guess your sarcastic, immature replies to him would be the same in person? I doubt that little man.
    And I guess you can be a tough guy on the other end of the computer because you know no one will call your ass out on it and bash your face in for being a dick.


    You make it sound like you drive a supercar and he doesnt...YOU DONT DRIVE A SUPER CAR. YOU DRIVE A TC!


    Take some of your own advice

    And I think its time for you to go back to 5th grade and revisit the "reading comprehension" section of the your English book.

    This is all jibberish. I take it you own a Tc and youre mad that he is bashing the car? Or am I making an off based assumption like you did?
    Okay, so hes about 2 seconds off.
    Youre a fucking idiot.
    So what supercar do you drive?
    Cool..way to make some LAME excuses there.
    Reading comprehension owns your sorry ass
    Once again, youre an idiot.





    You seem to not understand the concept of AN OPINION. You are bashing him for something that you are actually doing as well. I understand that you havent been around this board for too long, and you may not understand the concept of RESPECT and the board etiquette, but the way you responded in this thread made ya look like a 13 year old little girl. Sounds like you took offense to someone not liking your car....pretty lame to me. You are cutting down his car and saying its not a sports car....you arent driving a Ferrari either dude. Its a Tc. A car that I see women driving 90% of the time.
    If you want to continue this debate, Im game. But please bring something mature and educated (if you have that in you, and from what Ive read so far, you dont) to the table instead of throwing out childish insults. Ill be eagerly waiting your reply, with a cut on what I drive or something.

    Ah, I can see where this is going to go.....didnt know you were the language police

    Oh, and Ill quote myself from the other thread where you are telling me to watch my mouth (as if you have any right you youngin: http://TRDforums.com/forum/showthread.php?goto=newpost&t=7767


    And TRD, it was a slip up, and I was already reminded of it. :) So no need for you to open your trap and add fuel to the fire

    So where does cursing cross the line?
    THINKING IT, or actually TYPING it out?

    So before you bash someone else for cursing, maybe you should refrain from it yourself. :)


    And whos being an ass to everyone?

    Hasnt the new school year started yet? Oh yeah, Its Saturday.

    All that being said, you can either continue this fight, or go back to your summer reading requirements. In no way did this involve you, and I cant imagine that you would agree with 1234 and his replies above. I was NOT being negative towards everyone. If you feel that way, please show me. Otherwise, move along.
