<font color='#000000'>hey i raced this like 95 ford escort with exhaust and one of those gay "racing " paint jobs that look like stickers. I KICKED THE CRAP out it. It was in a 35 mph zone so i only went up to like 45 but i was already ahead a good 3 carlengths. He was eventually passed me cause i didnt want to get pulled over and he went up to like 60 but i had already made a fool of him. lol. Man Escorts suck. Its funny to mention them and racing in the same sentence.</font>

<font color='#FF0000'>they do look like ears, don't they Z? Thats what I thought when I first saw them... then I used them and noticed that it's a thumbsup sign... those are tiny hands popping out of that lil yellow mans head. *L*  :thumbsup:</font>

<font color='#000000'>actually the zx2's aren't too shabby.  probably keep up just fine with a 7th gen gt.  gts would obviously leave it in the dust.  my friend drives a zx2, it's pretty.</font>

<font color='#000000'>so you flirting with me then mereyem? ??? i think i can go for that.


I didnt think it was possible for an escort to be good. Ill have to find one to race and prove they are all pieces of crap. :alien:</font>

<font color='#000000'>yup.  here's some specs:

1986 celica gts
135hp @ 6k, ~2700lbs

2000 celica gts
180hp @ 7.6k, ~2500lbs

1997 escort zx2
130hp w/ztec, ~2478lbs

and then just so you could laugh at it:
1994 celica st
110hp @ 5.6k, ~2400lbs

i would think a good driver in an 86 gts could almost keep up with a zx2, but the fact that the gts is a fat man more in weight than the zx2, plus ztec, i've really gotta give kudos to the zx2.  of course, the 7th gen would leave them all in the dust.</font>

<font color='#000000'>hey for having a car thats like 11 years older, its pretty good to put up a good fight. Maybe could take it if i had like exhaust and intake. Ill have to find somebody with one of those zx2s.
 Thanks for the specs.</font>

 :grin:

hey, have you guys seen a 7th gen gt-s and the new Lancer revolution race? The gt-s celi has a lil bit more HP than the Lancer, but it can still haul.. I bet it'd be a good race...</font>
