    the appeal to supra's is that you can push out 800+rwhp on the stock bottom end.

    and it doesn't take a whole lot to put them between the 500-600 rwhp range. the potential is endless.

    think the supra record holder is putting 1600 or 1700 to the wheels.

    so you can mod them just like you can to anything else BUT

    they're expensive to buy

    stock they're not a very fast car

    they're ricey looking

    and it's like sitting in a tin can

    well it doesn't seem like it's any better than any other car out there

    What happened to all the numbers in between???
    Im not fully up on Nissan. But I "think" the 240 and the 280s were Datsun, and then the 300, 350, 370, are all after the name changed to Nissan. Some British car guys call the 350, 370, "Hopped up Datsun". But I could'nt tell you if there were any other numbers in between.

    To the OP. Sweet kill though. Got Soy Sauce?LOL

    Oh I see. Probably wouldn't know it if I'd seen it. I never kept up with much of the newer stuff and pretty much lost track of most of it.
    I don't follow much of the BMW, Audi, Nissan, or any other thing foreign so if one rolled up next to me I wouldn't know what the hell it was let alone be interested in even racing it.

    And you know what?? The Cobra will still be driveable on the street, instead of a being a worthless dyno queen with more turbo lag than a 747.

    Not to mention for the cost of making that kind of power with a Supra you could probably just buy a ZR1, which is actually a NICE car, not a poorly built riceburner.



    Endless?? The only thing "endless" would need to be your budget to built one of those pieces of crap, because they are so damn expensive to buy, mod, and repair.

    If I wanted that kind of power I would buy a forged LSX and twin turbo it for half the price. And it would actually last for more than one drag strip run, unlike the Supra.

    is it possible to put vtec on a 2jz? and if so would the earth start rotating backwards?

    Easily mid 12s? I have seen stock ls2 GTOs run mid to high 12s but 90% of them run low 13s. I think the 370z with a good driver would do 13flat high 12s. Its a 3200lbs car with 337hp, yes the powerband is a peaky one but i have seen 07+ 350zs go 13.2 bone stock, so a new version with more power and less weight should be able to do 13flat maybe high 12s. And the vq engine is a very sound design its those damn 6 speed manual trannys nissan needs to work on. Since this was a roll race trap speed would be more of a concern and there are guys trapping 107-108 bone stock in the new 370z already.

    I used to cruise Memorial in Tulsa back in the 80's with a Nissan 300zx Turbo with exhaust and boost control.

    Beat the snot out of 100s of Mustang and Camaro drivers with your attitude.

    Its too bad the GTO and the 370z didn't get a fair shake in this race. The 370z driver was a noob afraid to race from a standstill, and the GTO driver is a juicer.

    As much credit that anyone can give to the new 370Z which it deserves in some ways there is alot that holds me back from giving it the respect that some think it deserves. I still say it cannot and will not beat a stock LS1 and a car that has been out of production since 02 is amazing. With all the technology they put in these newer cars and bashing how american cars or so old tech and not worth waisting your time on, a brand spanking new 370Z with even more power with even less weight still is not enough to pull on a stock LS1.

    Granted they are fast cars and for 330+hp and light weight it should be but i love my Z28 and sit back watchin other car companies try and try year after year. Not saying they are competing trying to beat out an LS1 cars, lol but either way i still think a modded LS1 will easily pull on a modded 370Z as well. After all most Z28's ive seen are modded to some degree, light or extreme but will see. As many 350Z cars ive seen so far there will most likely be the same amount of 370Z's out there which will make the chance of running into one even better.
