I'm not sure about the Rabbit.

The Scion Tc has about 160 HP and the Rabbit has 150HP. I don't know what the weights of the cars are so I don't know who will have the advantage. 10 HP isn't something to be blown out of the water with...

hahaha....I scion tc isn't even in the same ballpark as a GTI, it'd get completely fried. I've riddin in both rabbits and Tc's, and I'd say according to the ol' butt dyno, the rabbit is definately torque-ier. I'd put my dough on the Bunny.

my best friend just got out of his lease of an 07 TC for an 07 GTI. he loved his TC but it just wasn't quick enough. also the gas mileage isn't that impressive for the size and such.

I think it brings it to about 200ish HP.
Actually the Scion TC is 170bhp with the TRD supercharger equipped. It's a little itty-bitty roots-type supercharge...that really doesn't do anything but whine.

Just came back from work and a Scion TC tried to race me....

I smoked him on the freeway and he followed me onto regular roads and I smoked him again - only way he could catch up is when I had to wait for a traffic light.

P.S. don't tell my wife ;)
