Default How fast is a GT 's 0-60 stock?

My friend always talks about how fast his truck is and that it would win vs my car. He hates imports and while I know the GT isn't fast I'm woundering how fast it actually is.

Specifically, it's a 2001 manual GT. Anyone know ""Approximately"" what a 0-60 is? I timed his truck at 11 seconds but I'm afraid to push my daily.

Mid 7's I'd say. I've timed my GTS before, a rolling 3 mph to 62/63 mph or so at about 6 seconds, though it definitely isn't stock....basically an open pipe muffler, Injen CAI, Exedy stage 2 clutch, chromoly lightweight flywheel, and a removed spare wheel and tool set. The '0-60 Times' website rates the GTS at 6.5 seconds, and apparently Car and Driver timed it at 6.8 seconds. Couldn't find 'official' data for the GT though.

So pretty much, equal drivers I'm like 3-4 seconds faster than him in just 0-60. Niiiiice.

Responding to Celica7, those numbers for 0-60 are definitely off. Either a weak shifting motherf*cker dragged those times, or it was for the automatic on a bad day. With 4 BIG guys in a GTS during one of my test drives I got maybe 7.5 seconds or so. I should also note, I get a 60 mph delta with my friend in the car timing me. One of these days I'll do it right, launch the car from 0, and film my instrument cluster and then go back later and calculate the 0-60 by looking at the gauge and time stamps.

Joe, the Celica is a beast b/c of its low weight. The GTS is actually faster based off of raw specs than the non-turbo Mark 4 Supra. Raw power is over rated. Sure, a muscle car MAY get a higher top speed, but who cares? I've never once exceeded 100 mph when racing someone, so top speed is irrelevant unless you are freeway racing, which I don't do for good reasons. A guy may even have a better hp/weight ratio than you and have like 400 hp and weigh 4000 pounds, but guess what? They can't actually use 100% of their throttle until 2nd or 3rd gear anyway, so that 10.0 ratio isn't even quite what it seems. The AC Cobra I learned stick in has 450 hp and weighs 2500 pounds with a tubular chromoly chassis and fiberglass body, but I could only get deep into the throttle without sending the car sideways at 4th and 5th gear. The car was so touchy because of its immense power and V8 torque, that I actually did one of my favorite mountain roads FASTER in my Celica than I did in the Cobra just because it was comparatively safe pushing the Celica to its limit but the Cobra wasn't. When my father tried to 'go fast' in it up a very steep mountain road here, he was sideways about 1/3 of the f*cking time on the turns; he MAYBE was 5% faster than me in my car in 2nd gear, despite having over a 100% more power. So yea...big power is over rated. To me, a Celica turbo'd to its safe gearbox limit of 300 hp, and with 500 pounds of weight reduction would be an ultimate streetable race car.

I enjoy light forces comment to the max.

Most say celicas are super slow and that made me want to build mine more. I was most suprised when you said our cars are faster than a stock mk4 supra as those are like my dream cars.

If racing, what's a good rpm to launch at for the GT? I tried real quick one time and found myself either sponning, or very loudly squeling my tires.

Yea, it has only 20-30 hp more than the Celica GTS, but weighs over 600 pounds more, bringing the power ratio to a bit worse than our cars.

I usually launch around 3000 RPM. Some crazy SOB's launch under VVTL-i, which must mean over 6000 RPM, but shoot...even with a serious clutch, that would cause it some damage. By the time the rev needle drops to 2500 rpm or so, I'm already full into the throttle and 3/4 of the way off the clutch pedal. By the time my foot is off the clutch, I'm at 2000 rpm or so and continuing at full throttle.

I remember one time I panicked when a car was flying at me from the side and dropped the clutch at 5000 rpm instantly. It lit the tires up for about 4 seconds straight before the car caught up to them, leaving a massive cloud of white smoke behind me in the middle of the intersection I probably wouldn't do it again for the lulz because I'm nervous of breaking something on my 230,000 mile car, but it was fun as **** when it happened.
