I believe stock Gen 7 GTS runs the quarter mile in 15.5 and the fastes Ive seen stock alltrac is 15.3. Don't get me wrong, GTS are fast but I've betten my good share of GTS to say my alltrac is faster.


I hear ya - and its awsome that you beat them.

Stock 7th Gens will run the 1/4 in as low as 14.9 if its a 00 or 01
With simple free weight reduction, removing the muffler and air filter you can do 14.7 or there bouts

With weight reduction, drag radial, intake, removed muffler and a power FC the record is like 13.7 NA, but low 14s is very doable.

Mind you those numbers are with very good drivers, the average driver will not come close.

Heh - to some extent, but the 7th Gens are very sensitive - theres a good 1.5 - 2 seconds worth of difference between a good driver and a bad one on one of those.

I have a 7th gen GT-S and an All-Trac. My 7th gen is faster stock hands down. I ran a 14.7 @ 95 mph bone stock.. no weight reduction. Here is my slip.

With an intake, unbolted stock exhaust, and a little weight reduction I can get low 14's. Notice I said that "I" can.. i'm not speaking for other GT-S drivers.. most of them suck.. at least all the ones around here do.
Best GT-S STOCK times: 1/4: 14.788 @ 94.98mph 1/8: 9.640 @ 75.87mph
Best Alltrac times: 1/4: 12.2 @ 115mph 1/8th: 7.9 @ 91mph

the c56 is a tricky trans to learn, but once you've got it you can can get some mad-quick shifts out of it. you have to be good, though, or you end up like the car and driver guys and call it "clunky"

last time i was having fun in my XRS i had my buddy in the passenger. when i was halfway through fourth he started laughing meniacally. apparently he heard my clutch pedal bounce off the top of it's travel because i was shifting so fast.

if you can catch it right you can honestly just kick the clutch and slam the shifter and the car will do it. i'm sure it's even easier in the celica because it's lighter.

and i would assume that since you have a BOV on your trac that there's a little more done to it.

still good that you laid the spank down. i bet they were saying, "he was hitting nitrous" or some garbage like that.
