modded supra TT would kill any ///m roadster whether it be quarter mile, or around the track. I've seen those supras race at the track, and they handle VERY nicely, and can do some sweet controlled drifts too.
I might be biased a bit though since a Supra TT with veilside bodykit has always been a dream car of mine =)

yeah supra's are really nice cars too, like modded ones of course, not a fan of jap cars but yeah for sure, a modded supra twin turno would smoke a ///m roadster, though i heard it your gonna get and mod a supra going with a single after market turbo is much better, but whatever

modded with 2 aftermarket turbos is even better

they do the single turbo because they have the NA model

every supra over 750hp that ive seen has single turbo so i think they rip out the twin and put the single in for a reason, maybe less turbo lag?

They do handle pretty good on the track but they never did have good enuff stopping power (just what ive noticed watching them race with the m3's, 911's, vipers's, ferraris)

yea, with 1 turbo it can be a lot bigger, but theres a shit load of lag, the turbo would kick in at like 4000rpm or something wouldnt it?

Porche use 2 smaller turbos vs one bigger turbo due to the 2 smaller turbos making less turbo lag.

Sorry to bring up such an old thread, but I'm amazed at the amount of stuff some of you people say that isn't true.

Show car and 1/4 mile Jon?
Have you ever SEEN Supras on a track? Have you heard of a little thing called ONE LAP OF AMERICA? Well a DAILY DRIVEN Supra, with a driver who has never raced on some of the tracks there, came in FOURTH with his Supra, out of over 83 other cars (MANY of which are only setup for track, such as many Vipers, Vettes, Porsches and BMWs).

And 600 HP is nothing, with a big (huge) turbo they can make 900+ TO THE WHEELS. With about 700 HP they're still not laggy and can be daily driven reliable while running 10s on the 1/4 mile track.

It's all about how it's set up, if it's set up to do 1/4 mile then it does just that, but there are MANY road raced Supras that kick ass as well.

And SOLDOMATIC, I'm not even gonna go there and say anything about your complete ignorance, other than the fact that proving whose car is faster in a straight line proves which car have faster acceleration () AND that the Supra(any some other Japanese cars) are NOT econo boxes, and are not FWD, and they can kick ass on the 1/4 mile track and a road race track (Supra, NSX, RX-7, etc is what I have in mind)

Please post your opinions and lets have a nice discussion going as I think I'm sort of knowledgeble on this subject (which doesnt happen often).

Jon hasn't been on a track! Hell he dosen't have a licence!

Not to totaly jump on you grasshopper but experience is a major thing. I even don't have track experience! I went around Mosport as a passenger in a track E30 325is with a very experienced driver (no not Randy), and I have realized that I have a LONG way to go! So keep pluging away little bugga!



So DarkRider insted of jumping on his little grasshopper skull (<--- ) you should come across more positive...we don't want to discourage the little guy even tho he can be a PITA! Cool?

M50E30, I just don't think that he should have posted something he doesn't know about. Have you ever noticed that I didn't post much Bimmer related stuff on this board? That's probably because I don't want to talk about stuff I don't know. How would YOU feel if I just went on and said that Bimmers are slow and that they break down every 100 miles?

SOLDOMATIC, GOOD JOB, you have nothing to say because you know you're wrong so you just say **** you. How mature
