Just curious as to what the fastest 1/4 times were for a stock TT (man or auto, doesnt matter). A guy on www.3si.org just threw down a 13.009 or 13.09 (cant remember which one it was) with a bone stock 96 Stealth TT.

Im not trying to start trouble here but their is no way a bone stock Stealth TT will run a 13.0 in the quarter. A mid to high 13 is much more realistic. If that Stealth ran that quick it has something done to it. Thats a nice time anyway.

actually, at 3671lbs, the 96 Stealth is 90lbs lighter than the lightest VR4(99, 3760) which ran 13.44QM, from a 6000RPM launch

since the car is a 96, its likely to have new tires. Throw on some lighter tires(some people don't realize the weight savings that can be found in a tire thus dont include it as a mod, an example Dunlop SP9000s, which weight 23lbs vs 28 for the normal 245/40/18), shift a little faster, and 13.09 isn't impossible(faster than I have heard of, but its possible).

The tires wouldnt be much of a mod but it still is. Bone stock means bone stock. That is the way the car rolled off of the showroom floor. No adjusting the air pressure or anything. That gives you an idea of the what the car actually runs on the street not the track. Some of the Supra guys on here were claiming 12's saying that they were bone stock and thought that pulling hoses meant they were still bone stock because they didnt add anything. The Supra is quicker and faster than the Stealth. Most 6 speed Supras will run a low to mid 13 bone stock.

A 13 flat is very impressive! That guy is probably an awesome driver.

I am not saying that he did get new tires... I haven't even heard of someone running faster than 13.44 stock(99VR-4). BUt I would assume, that it could be done in a 96 stealth, just because that is the lightest 3/S of them all

Sheeeezz, trying to discount a stock run because
other than OE tires(not drag radials)! Give me a break.
And give this guy some credit. Nice driving!

Nobody is trying to take any credit away. Its just when you see somebody run a time that is not even close to what that particular car normally runs its a little suspicious. As far as tires go he was saying that maybe that car had smaller than the oem wheels on it. I wasnt talking about using different brand tires. If you were to gut the entire interior of your Supra but not touch the engine at all and run a 13.0 would that run be considered a bone stock run??? Bone stock means bone stock.

whatever

You just dont want to believe it because a Supra cant run a 13.0 flat. The guy is an awesome driver. And when I said stock his car was stock (tires dont count unless they are slicks or what not which they werent). The guy didnt even have a KN or anything. STOCK. Want me to spell it out? Give credit where credit is due. Just cause the be all end all Supra didnt pull that run stock doesnt mean a 96 TT Stealth couldnt. AWD...aint it something.

A Stock Stealth only Traps 100 or 101, Its not running a 13.0...

Shut the Fuck Up Please.

My buddy was cuttin 1.8 60fts on a Bone Stock VR-4 and was only running 13.7s.

To run a 13.0, hed hafta get his trap to around 105-106.

Thats not Stock

actually, he did trap at 105: [email protected]

there were 40 degree temps, which helped of course, but any "stock" car can run at any temps they wish

he removed the spare tire and tire iron (but not jack) so if you want to complain about that you can :rolleyes:

here's the link:

Actually, Joe hooked up a boost gauge and found he
was hitting higher than stock boost levels. The car is
stock, but the boost control is not working within stock
parameters. Still a very good run regardless.

Not to be a magazine racer or anything, but I DID hear about a 13 flat a long @ss time ago in a bone stock VR-4 in a mag. I don't recal which (YEARS ago).

Anyway, Who has/had the fastest bone stock TT? I would guess 13.3?

TypeC,
Could you send me your mods and some good WRX
moification links to me at: [email protected] ?
I have a friend at work who wants to modify his but

would greatly appreciate the help.
Thanks,

as you probably know, it was a minor boost spike (less than 1000 rpm) that he is not sure is normal or not -- and is asking for others to check their stock cars to see

regardless, the minor spike might help some in daily driving, but not much at the track, if at all (low rpms)

I have heard of a few stock Supra's running 12.90's. I believe Guilly P. was one of them.

****Bill,
Joe asked for comparisons with other stock cars
with a gauge and I gave him the numbers from my
'95 VR4 with no mods except drop in K+N filter. I had
taken my MBC off and was seeing how much change
in boost I got. I was very surprised how low the stock
readings were. And the degree of difference was very
significant. You are only using 2500 rpm in a race(4500-
7000 rpm) and a 2+ pound variance over about half of
this range will certianly make a difference. Then again,
maybe my car was the one with the "incorrect" boost
level when stock. I assumed this was not the case because
Joe's trap speed is 3-4 mph higher than I have ever
seen stock(including 95-96 Stealths). That does not mean
my assumption was correct. I'll say it again. Damn fine
run.

****Hey Rob,
Is my "Hardtop Twin" coming to MIR Sunday for
the Import/Domestic race? I want a re-match!

I can't make it down, I will have my 2 little ones this weekend. I doubt I would be much of a challenge anyway so rep. the red hardtops for me. I know you will do a good job. I wish I could launch my car as well as you do yours. I would of had a 11 easy by now if I could. I just got my best 60 ft. ever on the Nitto's but still a pathetic 1.92. It netted me a [email protected] about 2 weeks ago at Cecil. My car loves the cold temps, but still only maintains 16 psi to redline at the dragstrip with both hoses pulled. Do you know how to do the shim the wastegate trick yet? :)

[email protected] still getting some bogging off the line. Gotta learn to slip the clutch more since the stocker is still holding up so well. Do you know how to shim the wastegate?
