Hey guys i know GSX's are fast from the holeshot..but who do you think would win from say a 50 mph roll on? Eclipse has normal bolt ons and the supra has just an exhaust. Both auto. I am racing the GSX for 150$ and i want to see what you guys think lol. Thanks:rolleyes:

I think the GSX runs a 15.2 quarter mile and so does the NA 5spd, not sure about NA auto, he would probably get you high end cuz of the turbo, just my guess.

the stock 2g gsx that i drove, always fell on it's face at about 50-60 mph... my n/a feels alot stronger on the top.... on the bottom though, ur screwed....

all the bolt ons for that dsm are probably going to help his topend out as well... i dunno if i would race for money

You'll pull him. Our cars have wicked top end for what they are.

i raced a i htink it was 91 talon awd turbo a while back from a 50-60 roll . he had intake exhuast . boost controller, downpipe and im not sure what else all i could see was his blitz boost gauge lol. anywas i had him out the hole evrytime but when he hit boost he was right with me to about 120-130ish then we shut down we raced 3 times, i beat him twice and he beat me once. it was a random race but a nonturbo supra will keep up with lighted moded turbo cars on the parkway without to much hassle. I also raced a 02 bpu wrx on the parkway and he couldnt pass me this was at a 50mph roll to 120ish as well. i beat the guy by half a car we just shut down cause i was starting to pull on him more once we hit those speeds. these cars are quick top end with the right mods, btw i dont condone racing on private streets ;)

it realy depends on the year. 91-94 i am not possitive but theyre faster right? i know ive beaten plenty of 2nd gen gsx's they seem to pull fairly well off the line even though they have a turbo, the supra still does better in the top end. its only 150 bucks.. lets hope u can drive though :D ive got my money on u and ur supra though.. eclipses are wayyy over rated

That would be F&F effects for you... yeah if your auto you should have a better chance out of the whole becuase most 5 speeders dont luanch to great.

You've beaten plenty of GSX's. I thought you got your car about a month ago? :rolleyes:

ok...a Gsx that is 5 spd, will run 15.1, thats what my talon did stock. but that was with a launch, an auto cant launch like a 5 speed...but your running from a roll-on? i dont know much about supras but 2nd Gen Talons and Eclipses have major turbo problems on stock turbo, past 5 grand they make nothing. at the track i took of 3 tenths of a second by shifting at 6 grand instead of 7 or 7400. try going for a ride and seeing where he shifts, or if he just leaves it in drive. good luck though.

he better be stock or you are going down. it should be close if he is stock - i personally think even stock it would edge you out from a stop.

I've raced my friend's lightly modded 2nd gen GS-T with my intake and exhaust N/a auto before a few times.....

from a 50-60 roll, I'd pull 1/2 car on him and he'd reel me back in and pass.

I'd suggest dont race that GSX if you have an auto.

Are you sure? They have NO top end!

yes i'm sure.....I'm talking about 80-110 mph not 150mph....:rolleyes:

and a bolt on n/a auto doesn't have much top end either....unless you're comparing it to a civic or something. my damn car in stock form couldn't get out of its own way.

No top end my ass. What's the fastest you've been? I can get to 140 easily. I've been to 155.
