TC

Decided to drive the piss out of my Scion today for a good minute. About a half mile or so, hit 110 or 112 mph. The 0 - 60 is the pretty crazy part to me atleast. This was a start from idle, so I wasn't feathering the throttle at all, just took off like normal. Well feel free to comment There was no traffic, it wasn't raining, i wasn't drunk, etc. So hopefully I don't get grief. Enjoy..

2.4L 4 banger. 170hp on a 5 speed tranny and new tires. Not bad.

Can't see the numbers. How long did it take you to 0-60?

Interesting.
Quicker than I'd have thought.

try autox. the Tc's seem to do pretty well in their class. s generally full of cars with much lower power, and wose weight distributions.

i went today for the first time with my G. it was even better than the Mini.

Honestly im not sure, I might run it again tonight with the lights on so the numbers are visible. Yeah they are quick cars for being as cheap as they are. And yes, im sure it could easily hang with a Civic SI. There is a Mugen SI at a dealership by my house. I want it! 32g price tag though.

Approximately 7 seconds give or take 0-60. Thats not with revving up and dumping the clutch. I took off normally.

Not to burst any bubbles, but there's a magazine that tested the Civic Si and a TRD Supercharged TC and they were exactly even, the Si being a tiny bit quicker... so a stock TC wouldn't stand a chance. Judging from the video though, it doesn't seem bad at all, def. faster than my pos Civic Lx.

Ran it 0-60 last night, tires were cold so I couldn't hook up for anything. Spun in 1st and 2nd, still not bad though. Hopefully this video is clearer.

As for the Si vs. TC.. If I can not beat, but hang around a SS HHR I'm pretty sure a Charged TC, at 170 hp bone stock, could take a Si with what 200 hp? I've been searching videos because it seems thats the only response people have to the Tc is how much better the Civic seems to be. Believe me if I had a close ratio 6 speed gear box instead of a loose 5 speed I'm sure work would be put on some Si ass. In reality, its cheaper and damn near as quick. Tc has more torque and close HP. Stock..

The thing is that the TRD Supercharger that Scion will install for you at the dealer will sit the TC on 200hp only. So a 200hp TC vs a 200hp Civic (granted it has less torque, but it also weighs less) ends up being an even race.

TC has 161hp stock btw.
