That is impressive! Anybody know more about this car?

I had planned to be there but got a flat tire on the drive up, with no spare. By the time I got the car home and the tires changed, it was too late to go. I would have loved to see this car run.

Now I remember who said that...It was John Hennessey after one of his 10 sec missiles burst a water pump at 190+mph....It was in MT mag......

I think Paisley did an 8sec run his best...The other two times they both ran was in the semis and they didnt go all out just enough to qualify...They "only" went in the 9's on those runs....The finals is where they both shut down.....It appeared that they each would have beaten those rotarys if their cars were running right....

Here are some non-Supra standouts:

Stephan Papadakis did an 8.5 at 174mph.....An especially ignorant run from Ben Ma in the white Ford Mucus er Focus 7.6 at 173mph........A Puerto Rican car that did 7.3 at 180mph 3 times.......Lisa Kubo hit 9.5 at 153mph and JoJo Kallas did 9.6 at 154mph......And the most exciting race of them all was between a Nissan Pathfinder and a Probe GT....The Probe did 15.1 at 92 to Pathfinders 18sec run.....I needed to towel off after that race...whew :D

Paisley went 8.2 at around 160 on Sat. The wildest thing was Paisley when his car went vertical off the line. Front end really slammed and he had a big scrape on the rear bumper. Got it going again but something went wrong in the semis. Left after that. Ten had a problem also so no supra in the finals for pro comp. This will be on ESPN2 May 25 at 5:30 pm.

I was there yesterday and saw the car....I heard those same numbers. Unfortunately we got there too late to see the runs...Very impressive nums though....However I dont like the name Bullish....Me and my friends first thought it was Bullshit Racing the way it was written on the side of the car....But any company that can make a Supra do 9's w/o NOS can call themselves whatever they want...And that fine by me :D

I was disappointed by the efforts of Paisley and Vinny Ten...They failed to make the finals...We were all looking forward to a shootout between the two of them.....Tey both got spanked by rotorys....In their defense they didnt get good runs in the finals...They both shut down out of the box.......Paisley is usually consistent but I come to expect Vinny to break down...But as they say in racing " if ya aint breaking something every now a then, ya aint trying hard enough"....Forgot who said it...Damn for all I know it was Vinny that said that :D

Ara in the bullish car went [email protected], no N2O and some other guy(Greek) did the [email protected] in an auto w/o N2O also. Did any remember Vinny's and Paisley's best times of the day?

Wow!!! Papadakis ran a 174mph trap speed??? Thats the highest he has ever run. Vinny Ten always seems to be very inconsistent with his runs. Its a real shame because that car has the power to run 7's. Paisley's car is a lot more consistent than Tens.

WC< It may not be as Impressive To Go 9s with a gm tranny But I ran nines and how many people can say that only a couple and deffenitly not you. If the toyota automatic is so good then why do the break so much , the tranny in my car is good to 1800 hp and has already shown good resaults and just think That was on 25lbs non NOS wait till I crank it to 30psi and turn my little blue bottle on you might see the fastest Unibody supra in the World.Also Ive been challanged by Jarret @ Power house to Race him in texas this coming month and Ill be there putting the full power to it

This car is very impressive no matter what trans it has in it. It takes quite a bit of skill to build and drive a car to the level that 9sec-t78 has acheived. We should be congratulating him, not knocking him.

Great job. Way to keep pushing the envelopeand raising the bar! I look forward to seeing it run.

so you put a GM trans in your supra... congratulations, now you're not eligible to race in any import classes... why don't you just put a 350 in your car too? lol

As for 9s, we'll see those soon enough with my car with a unibody AND a toyota trans, and drag radials too, to boot...

I'm not a very big fan of slicks on "street" class cars period, mainly because noone really drives around with them on the street, but I can certainly respect the accomplishments of supras running 6 spd or toyota automatic transmissions running slicks in either quick or street class...

I consider supras running GM transmissions to be mere curiosities like Paisley and Vinny and Russ M. running in the outlaw classes... or Mike Simon with the 4G63 powered CRX... or Top secret's 3SGTE or RB26 powered supras... or even Venom Racing using a 2JZGTE in a S10 <shrug> While they are cool, they aren't really relevant to true streetable supra performance.

Also Is your car certified to run nine seconds????, do you have a nine NHRA 9 second licence????

I have a NHRA certified cage...although I will ahve to make a licence run in this specific car <shrug> That's great that you can run IHRA power 6 but good luck running in either the BFG ID drag wars events, or battle of the imports (maple grove) or even NIRA events... as I remember russ M was disqualified for having a powerglide during that event.

Any car running 9s is fast, but any car with a powerglide is in a different class altogether, in a class with PHR, Vinny, Paisley, and other cars that I described earlier, NOT in the street class as the original post mentioned.

Wow the jealousy here is amazing, No seriously didnt you say your car would run 9's LAST YEAR?. Give the guy a break, he ran a 9 and you're trying to put him down like you've done any better. Do you really think if he's running this car at the street races somebodies gonna have X-ray Vision and say "Well after using my special powers to see into the car I can see thats not a toyota tranny that just makes it less impressive". You're mentioning Aubi, how much NOS did aubi run??? I didnt know you owned Humberto's car why bring it up?. 9SECT78, great run and dont let the occassional jealous asshole put down or dampen your accomplishment.

PS. Dont worry about mystic, he owns an accord and is generally Warren's "mini-me"
