    Default lost a drag race from 2.0D corolla in my VTEC,

    Guys, tonight i was out for a drive and a 2004 corolla 2.0D gave me double indicators. I raced him n won . but again he wanted me to drag with him and i was like HAHAHA, its so easy.But i was so shocked to see my front bumper at his side mirror level. I have a VTEC. (but its on CNG) eventhough i raced on petrol. Can u guys plz suggest me anything to improve the vtec pick. Coz it aint bad atall. Almost gives the noraml 0-100km/h in about 8.7 sec (the standard )

    oh yes , u r right salarzae. I got mistaken. its 9.7 i guess. But yar tell me wat to do. I have a stock engine. But one thing to be noted is that i got 16 inch low profile tyres , 205/45. They r quite wide. Does that affect the pick???

    wrong
    2.0D is not good because i have a 2.0D special edition 2000 model and a Vti Orial 2000 Model and i think 2.0D can not even drag with SANTRO and u r talking about VTI.
    and 0-100 of my Vti is in 9secs (stock)
    i m in peshawar u can contact me or text me on 0333-6707864

    btw, a couple of years ago we had a drag with 2.0D on Indus Highway and we lost. I was in VTi with 225's. Later when we reach Peshawar I realized it was not 2.0D but a GLi. That guy deceived us with his monograms and smoked us with 1.6 GLi!!

    Another thing, my cousin (Zarak Khan, 4 those who know him from Isb meet) had a blue metallic VTi Oriel with factory tyres and he used to smoke us also..... both being VTi's but us having bigger wheels and tyre.. it definitly takes its toll!

    Creampuff, i believe your car will never run the same after CNG installation...even though you were running on petrol, it wouldnt have been giving its max perfomance due to blockage in the air intake, which the mechanics usually do..and the added weight i guess.....no point racing CNG cars...

    Hie guys, well my car is manual transmission, and yeah i guess the original wheels come in 14inch size. Bydaway i fully agree with u guys on the monogram stuff. maybe he had a gli coz i neva heard that diesel engine noise... lolz ,,, aakhir apna dil tou khush karna hai naa
    & yes i also noticed the air intake thingy,, as the intake of my car is also half taped. And i guess CnG pe setting huwi hai , so CNG mein Advance hogi aur petrol mein retire... Anyways mera tou is vti se dil bhar gaya hai

    If ur car does not have an emulator
    and the air intake is blocked with tapes. u r lucky if u won in the first run. cutting the air supply on petrol is like strangling the car. and without emulator gas/petrol does not segregrate which also affects the performance on petrol
