2010 Si or 2013 Scion TC rs8

A buddy of mine picked up a 2013 scion tc rs8. He claims due to the torque in his car, he will have no problem keeping up, let alone walking all over my 2010 si with I/h/e FP and etune. I just laughed and walked away. What are your opinions?

What is the rs8 part of it? If its the same performance of a regular tc you will rape him. Go for it and enjoy the look on his face as you pull away

Release series TCs just have Trd parts, nothing performance whatsoever except springs, they have an axle back exhaust in some cases and a limited run rim that's about it, you will still kill his TC, I know all this because my father works at a Toyota scion dealer and he's told me the differences, they just look different is all.

It's the same motor as the regular TC right, it just looks alot sicker and its a lot more rare. I think that an Si would smoke it, The TC might be ahead in the beginning but by the top of second I was inching ahead on the yellow TC with the black top, not sure of those specs.

I had to look up the specs and features for myself. It pretty much comes with a *** splitter, a centered Trd exhaust, and a few other badges that give the car an extra 200hp lol. He claims that the torque difference makes up for the hp, which led him to believe he would have no problem with keeping up with me. Now I don't like to brag, but when if I know your car is better and faster than mine I will admit it. I just couldn't help but laugh tho. I guess I'll have to prove it to him. By the way it's an automatic...with paddle shifters 😳

It's all the same, I even just looked it up out of curiousity, just a limited color, rims, body kit, and interior.

This is why I have no respect for tc owners. Seems like every single one of them I run into thinks he's driving a jet.

tC owners are the biggest pussies on the road.

They're even worse than... dare I say it... VDUB owners.

Show him what high rpm does to cars with low-low end torque.


If you are a good driver you will walk him without no problem.

Please let us know the outcome and his excuse.
