    That is becuase the first 4 seconds their turbo isn't spooled and they are running a #L NA race. It's hard to overcome a big setback like that from a dig.

    Another thing that baffles me is the RWHP some of them produce and they trap like they have 250hp less. Even with the turbo spool, it makes almost no sense.

    turbo lag is a bitch. and i am really not impressed by massive turbos makin big power. sure, if ya want to be the dyno king, or "race from 80 roll" king, then big turbo is way to go, but i would never road race one. NA all the way.
    "but side2000 i've seen supras that make 1000 wheel, you're an idiot". . . .i've seen geo's run 9's on compound turbos. it's all 'bout what ya want n how much you wanna spend. i'll take the violence of my ravenous NA crackin through gears anyday over a max power application. if i was rich, my "ravenous NA" would have over 600 wheel.

    4 turbos?????? on a geo?? One word comes to mind. Jackass. I would have to see pictures of that to believe it anyway. And no I would not rock a NA supra with cam/intake swap.. nor would I rock a geo even if it has NOS and a turbo....I have a lot more respect for myself than that.....

    that is unless they are automatics then they are better at going from a dig. The main problem with the supra is the IRS which is built specifically for road racing, which during hard launches causes major wheel hop. This is why many of the drag supras have a 9" ford rear end.

    it goes the same IMHO for all cars, Automatic>manual for drag racing.

    a lot of money? it takes around the same amount to make a viper, to get into the 8s or a vette ( i belive,) i mean look at how much the lingenfelter TT package is. its around the same amount as a new 08 Z06 $86 grand for 1000hp?! for a supra compared to that much its actually much less possibly $40k. so does that mean its worthless because you have to put that much into it to get 1000hp/fast?

    also how is low 11s (with out a single or modified twins) slow? which is what you can get from a tt with minimal modifications. are you comparing supras to hondas? and yes it costs alot, because of the fact that belive it or not supras are rare semi exotic sports cars, which are pretty much no frills, street legal race cars. not at all daily drivers but because they are toyotas they think they are corrollas. or frickin hondas.

    yes fuck fast cars slow cars are better right? .. not being biased or anything, simply because i own one, i actually like all fast cars, otherwise i wouldn't be here. But what you just said is the same thing that other rice boys say whenever they get beat by another car saying aww they are slow etc.

    in other words give respect where its due. I am not a fan at all of mustangs but i know many of them are fast, and i must give respect to where its due.

    If I'm not mistaken I said the same damn thing not to far back in this thread. I was reading about how the MKIV Supra actually outhandles a C4 on the skid pad, cones, and pretty much every thing else.

    built c4 > built supra on road course. no ifs ands buts.

    dont forget those lingenfelter packages for 80 grand comes with new motor etc etc from LINGENFELTER. . . .30 thousand of it is for the name.

    i'm not sayin supras are beat cars (well maybe i am), but they been around for twenty years. i could turn a 1997 c5 into 1000 horse street monster for a fraction of the cost of that lingenfelter package. or for fair age comparison, i could pick up a c4 for way cheaper than a supra to start, and then build motor, add boost, and still take my girl out to eat. with a supra, i'd have an incomplete project and an angry ex-girlfriend.

    Sounds like you raced an naturally aspirated 420A neon motor car, you might as well have raced a Geo metro lol.
