all of the reviews that i have read about the tc before i bought mine said that the tc should be within a couple of 10ths difference in the 1/4 then the new si's. i just cant remember if it was faster or slower.

Raced an Si at the 1/4 mile track a few days ago. He had I/H/E and my tC has Intake and exhaust. The Winner.........Scion tC- 15.989 seconds, Civic Si- 16.228 seconds.

nicely done. i've been wanting to go to the track to see what i'm capable of. i predict that i will be somewhere in the low 16s due to the higher elevation (palmdale, 3,200 ft.)

the 05 si does 0-60 in 8 seconds flat if i remember correctly. (with a good driver behind the wheel, that is)

the tc is definitely faster on the tracks. i've never had a chance to hit the tracks but i've raced my buddies ep on the streets from a roll and they're not too bad. i've got injen cai, 18s and a short shifter and he has an injen cai and broken motor mounts. we hit it from about 45 i was in third and he was in second, he immediately pulled a car ahead but then he shifted into third and i reeled him in nicely and put a good car or two lengths ahead by 80.

I believe if you watch raytrix's race video against an '04 Si, it makes the Si 0-60 seem like 12 seconds...seriously...but he may just be a novice driver. -shrugs-
lol....you know, watching raytrix's videos is like watching that NHB DC5 guy's videos of base RSX vs scion tC
For those who know what I'm talking about

Yeah. The Si isn't all that bad and yeah its got a smaller engine and not as much torque compared to the tC. If they hadn't made it into the ugly hatchback that it is, I probably would have gotten it, but when I found out about the tC I was in love lol.

The tC is defenatly slower on the track. i went there and i ran what the car does stock spining threw 1st 2nd and half of 3rd. that was the first time I had ever driven on the track and i ran a 15.7233 that is what the car runs stock. i have K&N CAI and custom Bent CAT back exhaust. i found the car is better on the street especially with the stock tires.

I was gonna get a tC but I decided that I didn't want to be rolling around with the same engine my dad has in his 04 camry. It seemed kinda gay. And that crappy blind over the 2nd half moon room turned me off. Maybe if the TRD charger came out...

You let a blind on a moonroof be the deciding factor in weather or not you got a car?

...right.

And I hate to break it to you, but there are more cars out there running the same exact engines than you obviously know. What makes them all different is the rest of the car, you may have the same engine in the tC as a camry, but it's geared far differently, its a different weight on a sport-tuned suspention, the list goes on.
