    I'm merely pointing out the potential of natually aspirated V8s and not needing 40lbs of boost to run those kinds of times...that's all. ProStock does it w/ 500 cubic inches to the 6 second mark.

    All you are pointing out is speculation not facts what ifs not facts.

    In racing its who won not if ands or buts. I like all kinds of racing, quarter mile is not the only mesure of performance although it is consider the standard and their are alot of people that like 8th mile, mile, road racing etc etc.

    I hope a lsx powered car wins the texas mile.

    Stop being naive thinking cars going 240mph in the standing mile aren't full race cars.

    I don't know where you're from, parts unknown apparently, but where I live we have 1/4 mile drag strips...not 1/8 or standing mile. But yes an LSX powered car winning would be great.

    The supra that went 228mph was in the street unlimited class, that means street legal. Infact most cars at the texas mile are street cars and many of them reach speeds over 200mph. Infact there is a street class that starts at 190mph, which means you need to go that fast atleast.

    Maybe you didn't read my post the first time -

    These are race cars that meet the minimum specs to be quote-on-quote street legal. Take any of those cars to state inspection though, and they would fail miserably.

    Why not, i know people who drive 1500hp cars on the street. In fact i saw jims 600cubic inch 1700whp thunderbird at the grocery store just the other day.

    He was comparing prostock cars which are full race cars. Not street legal cars that you dont believe drive on the street.

    Yeah because 600 cubic inch 1700rwhp cars are something you see on a daily basis commuting to work. You're really stretching it with "street legal."

    I guess, but who cares if its fully street legal as long as you can drive it on the street, prostock cars YOU CANT. I know 3 people who drive 1500+hp street cars. I also know that they run in street drag where you have to go on a 20-30min drive with the track inspectors shut your car off for 10min and then start it back up without adding anything all using 93 octane. Then after he did that he ran a 8.0 on drag radials and won fastest street car.

    So now you're admitting they're not street legal. The ability to drive on the street and it actually being allowed by your state are two very different things. Which goes back to the point that that supra is undoubtedly not legal on the street.

    So what if its is or isnt street legal in everyway. They are still driven on the street and streetable. Hell my legacy isnt technically street legal because its missing some cats, i put 20kmiles on it a year. Like i said atleast you can drive it on the street, the car you talk about is a prostock, fake body, no lights no nothing. Doesnt even run gas and needs to be refilled every run.

    ricers can be made fast, but it takes ALOT of money, and they are very limited when it come to making power on pump gas. they need the finest race fuel and enough boost to split the atom, and a life expectancy of about 20 minutes

    He just keeps digging the hole deeper.

    This supposedly super fast texas mile Supra isn't street legal. You can't legally drive it on the street. You won't pass inspection. It would be impounded and crushed.

    Some people just don't know when to call it quits...
