I was just wondering what the best 1/4 mile time is out of you guys. The Supra can be modified and tuned up and can be any model. Thanks

Don't know exact time but it's somewhere in the 8's, but drag times aren't everything! Hell what's the point of having an 8sec car if you can only drive it on a track(most sub-10sec cars are trailer queens and aren't even "driven" to the track... instead they are hauled), and on top that it's just straightline acceleration, not tryin to dis Supras by any means it's still a performer on a road course, but it seems like since that stupid movie Fast&Furious came out all people care about is 1/4 times, hell if you want straightline performance get a bike, it's a LOT cheaper and a LOT more of a thrill. BTW if you notice that I have a VR4, the only reason that our best time is a 10.81 is because there hasn't been one made specifically for drag yet while the majority of unibody Supras that are in the 9's are essentially "drag" tuned cars. With some of the projects I've seen at my "home" board 3si.org it will be good to see what the upcoming "race" season has in store for us.

WTF? now what's the point of that.... he could've just gotten a Supra and decked it out for how much it probably cost him to put a 2JZ in his "Rex", and I mean c'mon, why the engine of your biggest competitor in your car?.... either it's a case of "if you can't beat 'em join em" or someone that has too much money for their own good.... give me some then... maybe i'll put a 3-rotor RX7 motor in my VR4, or i'll just keep w/ the AWD scheme and just throw in a Skyline motor :p

But then again w/ the dependability of "Rex's" and their rotaries(or lack thereof) I guess he might be goin for the best of ALL worlds.... the weight and looks of a Rex with the dependability of a 2JZ.

Actually, if you are looking for maximum drag strip performance, this is not a bad idea. The RX 7 is quite a bit lighter than a Supra. RX7s also hook well. I think the results speak for themselves.

I wonder how difficult the conversion is?

Actually, I read in a magazine where they did it and they said it was extremelly difficult. I think it was SP Engineerings projectcar. They call it the Supra-7.

No. 1 Marko D. (D as in doggie) - 8.89 @ 151.00 - Chicago - SupraStore.com / Sound Performance *******this run is also considered false per Marko himself********


No. 9 Mark Cooper - 10.20 @ 133mph - Sound Performance, IL

OMG, its actually true that he ran 8's??? Thats amazing. There was so much confusion if he actually ran that, but if Tozer put it up, he probably verified it. If your reading this Marko, Congrats.

-amir

p.s. Shouldn't it be SP88 instead of T80 under the link for Marko, just wondering.

Yeah but i'm not stubborn you kindly point me in the direction and thats it. it leads to less headaches and meaningless posting. I dont mind saying i am wrong or anything. i dont like people calling me stupid or whatever for no reason. like most people i'm still trying to learn more about a 2jz. I want to eventually get one myself.
