At my last visit to the Toyota dealership some one saw my car and asked the owner what it was. He then started to talk about how he once had a Corolla GT-S and how they were such a great car. He said the best part about them was you could buy them for $11,000 new and destroy BMWs!?! He never specified what kind of racing he did though.

Was the Corolla GT-S really faster then BMWs in the 80's? If so that's just crazy!

Sure dude, he just drifted right by while those german boats were held back on the corner with their heavy engines:D :thumbup:
Tofu never loses!!

But seriously various early 80's BMWs like the 320i aren't very fast. Still a stock GT-S runs like a 17 or 18 in the 1/4 so it would have to be very very slow unless he was talking about road racing...:confused:
Haha... yes... Corolla is quite fast dont think it is a slow are although only 1.6...
My friend tried to chase a Proton(Our Malaysian National Car) 2.0 before. He is Driving a Japanese Version Levin 1.6 Manual, He was able to trail at the back all the time but he don't have the guts to overtake coz the road is dangerous...

I just got my Japanese Version 1.5 Auto Engine and new set of springs and adsober fit into my car last week... Tried to trail some 1.6 or higher cars... Successful... :D
But yesterday could not follow a 1.6 car cause of Traffic, damn!!!
That guy was very snooblish, driving a Proton 1.6 (WAJA New model)... :mad:
I can trail him at 1st although i haven't full push to the limit...
I dare not push too hard because i haven take the car to get authority inspection and change my enigne no. at the registeration card... If i crash no Insurance... :(

Toyota Corolla is good man High Reliablility.... :)
Enjoy Driving
