Surprisingly these guys actually knew what they were talking about compared to other magazines. Only thing I didn't like was how the internals can only handle 600hp and 700hp for the 6spd.

Yeah, I hated how they were like, the stock internals can make 600 hp. Some people claim they have 900 hp on stock internals, but that's BS. Isn't the record 1,017 at the WHEELS? So effectively DOUBLE the 600 they mentioned?

They make it sound like the Supra's achievments are just too ridiculous to be true...

Well, yes they ARE ridiculous, that is why the Supra is such an amazing car, no other car comes so overbuilt in all those aspects...

I mean, a fuel system to handle 450 rwhp, an engine to handle I'd say 800 RELIABLE rwhp, with 1000rwhp already acheived, a 6spd transmission to handle ANYTHING you can throw at it as evident by Woon's achievments, all while being RELIABLE. Not to mention the car can [and is] street driven to the track where it runs 8's, and still, to most people, looks amazing.

What other car can do this? That is what makes the supra so amazing, it can be anything you want it to be. I just don't understand why magazines are so afraid to admit that.

You forgot its braking record was just broken last year by the $450K Porsche Carrera GT, and with its curb-rashing undersized tires, pulled skidpad numbers matching those of todays Corvette with wider, newer-technology tires.

Goddamn, I want to spoon my eyes out right now. Those were the worst scans ever. You get an A for effort though. :)
