Police won't determine fault in accidents on private property.

Keep that in mind when some idiot in a Walmart parking lot is trying to cause an accident, it might be his fault completely but the official story won't say so. (cop friends told me this, I haven't experienced it)

Sure, I'd own an XRS Corolla of that year. Stance crap has to go though.

Good thing u think of them like that then... Until an Xrs pulls school buses on you. Why do i say this? I come from the corolla world and i know what an xrs can do because i had one. Funny u hate them so much becuase the 1st gen xrs is built better than any focus sold in the us, any year, even the st. And type s is honda language the corolla is just S as in sport, lose the type before it. The on in the pic is a "type" CE btw

Ill just leave this here

The XRS is about as fast as an SVT or ST stock for stock, so I don't think it'll pull buses on them. It'd be close though.

Right,

170hp/155ishwhp stock, then add an intake and a catback and ur already at
175whp, add a race header with cat delete and tune and ull see 195whp. Never seen an svt/st do that. Car weighs 2600lbs, seats out, spare tire out ull see 2500ish pounds, engine can be tuned to rev up to 10k with and upgraded fuel pump, ull be in the 13's by now. Mine i had lift from 5500 till 9400k... And it was a matrix which had 10 more hp than the corolla stock, 100lbs heavier though so fairly they where the same.

Ill give u this one though corolla prob had just an intake

Once mods come into play, who knows. Stock though, they're very much the same class of car in acceleration. I'm a fan of the 2zz. It's a cool motor.
