You could beat him in the corners if you have a whole suspension setup (springs, shocks, roll bars, stabilizers) and a true intake, true good manifold, and a whole exhaust setup, not to mention an upgraded clutch, supercharger and all that good stuff. (And only because the old Chevelle rolls around like a boat on water and is only meant for going straight fast.)

Our generation Camry's aren't meant for racing. I'll be the first to tell you. I own one, I love it, and I am putting money into aftermarket stuff for it, but that's only for my own pleasure. I'm not racing it. I just like to drive it fast.

Now if you buy the 2 door, 5 speed, supercharged V6 gen 3 and put money into it, you can race that.

Like this one:
the chevelle is a 4 door 6 inline 250ci motor, and i know the guy

Speaking of which I've gotta get some pics of up my ride.
my dad had flowmasters and glasspacks on his f150. i didnt like the glasspacks because they werent as deep sounding.

In that case, you have a much higher chance of beating him.

Flows sound good, but I'm not a fan of non stainless exhausts.

For those that think their 150 is "the bomb."

Toyota will always take what Americans make and do it better.

Hmmm.... Maybe a gen4 can race.

You can't base anything off of those videos, there are too many factors to consider. First of all you have no idea what engine is in that 150, it could be the 4.2l v6 for all we know. Second you have no idea what differential the ford has. A 3.73 will out-pull the 3.55 off the line for sure. Those could be two totally differently equipped trucks and you would never know.

Plus it's at a Toyota dealership, obviously the Toyota is going to win.

That video shows the way a Toyota is constructed compared to the Ford. Trust me when I tell you that Ford makes a more reliable truck than Toyota.

Edit: Also it looks like the Toyota was in 4wd and the Ford definitely was not. Just another factor to consider.

Edit 2: Here's another video to show frame construction: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zRfE_...eature=related
