My friend has a 95 civic ex 5speed v-tec with intake, Exhuast, header...and some basic stuff...

1st...the corolla had little wheel spin but they were even
2nd...the corolla got 1/2 car ahead
end of third gear...the corolla got almost 2 car length

and the civic gave up.....

maybe your friend didn't know how to drive, but I think that the civic's times are like some where around 9 secs anyways...maybe the corrolla is faster, I don't know much about corrollas though.

i raced my 98 Si (EX in the US) against my buddys 2001 corolla down this deserted street we always go to. the only mod i had was integra exhaust. i didnt beat him by very much but we didnt reace very far though. he told me his was stock 125 hp (mine 127 stock + exhaust) the new carollas have 130 hp though

heres the specs on it
All-aluminum 1.8-liter DOHC 16-valve
VVT-i 4-cylinder
130 hp @ 6,000 rpm
125 lb.-ft. @ 4,200 rpm

It should of been a close race..
Corolla Specs:
Base Engine Size: 1.8 liters
Horsepower: 130 hp
Torque: 125 ft-lbs.
Weight: 2524 lbs.

Civic Specs:
Base Engine Size: 1.6 liters
Horsepower: 127 hp
Torque: 107 ft-lbs.
Weight: 2504 lbs.

The corolla should get a jump off the line.. Due to the extra torque. And is gonna win..

The civic shouldnt of been far behind.. IF the foo could drive his car..

Maybe nos on the corolla if it was a real ass whooping.

the same thing happened to my freind. he had a 7th gen civic with intake and exhaust. my other freind with the corolla 02 was stock. the corolla was winning in first, second and beginning of third gear. but by the time 4 gear was coming up, the race was over.
