not enough info on the poll.. i assumed daily driven car (but then the velle didn't make sence.. oh well) but if was daily driven i would say ls1 f-body all the way.. fast stock.. look good (t/a ws6.. ohhh :) ) and respond well to mods and nawz! lol

n/a = nitrously asspirated right? rofl :D

You ever wonder why 400rwhp supes and 600rwhp supes both run 12's? Because they're not drag cars. There's nothing about the supra designed from the factory for drag racing. It's a highway car. The suspension is shit from the go.

shit suspension huh..??

theres no cure for the sus.?

like aftermarket panhard rod,lca's,torque arm,bushings..that kinda stuff?

how would 400 hp sup run the same as a 600?..thats seems impossible..

ford makes an aftermarket rear?.remember im new :)

i was joking about the ford rear... unless you have lots of money to throw around

400 same as 600 joke comes from the supras inability to launch very well under high hp/tq situations

no traction... and apparently it is VERY hard to know how to launch them right, as there are very few supras below 10's, yet there are plenty of supras over 600+ hp
