I Have An (whats Left Of It Anyways) 88 Supra. It Had Full Bpu And Put Down Just Over 450rwhp. I Had The Speedo Maxxed Out For Like 20secs Or So. It Was Straight Down In The 6:00 Position And Bouncing A Bit. How Fast Was I Going? Oh, This Was Comming Backfrom S.i.l.v. 02 While Racing Or Rather Raping A Mercedes Slk 550 Amg!

Oh, Its A Manual 5speed 1988 On 97tt 17 Inch Wheels And 265/40/zr17 Tires. Help Me Out You Tec Guys!

why did you capitalize the letter of every word. lol its kinda annoying. i think the max speed of a supra is 187mph correct me if im wrong, i dont remember where i saw that, but i think thats the maximum speed the tranny is capable of, not sure if its from a 89+ or pre 89. also what rpm was the car at? id have to say about 160-170mph

178 mph is how fast you would be going at redline in 5th with TT rims with whatever gears a 91 has I think... im not sure for your gearing though.

Yeah, that number which was computed, threw me off. I drove a friends 88 to 150, and that is not burried, nor was the needle bouncing. And I thought the tach had a decen amount of room left. . . Maybe the speedo is way off. And your 88 does have a 3.91 right?

cool, that is near where i htought it would be. all i know is i will never go that fast in a mkiii again. they dont handle worth a crap at that speed. the front end feels like its gona take off, and i have alot of suspention mods! the car was still going faster.....i pussed out!

i drove my friends mercedes slk 320 hartop convertable to the max speedo readout (160mph) and i wasnt scared. that car handled no differently at 80 than at 160. i felt in controll and comfortable. i guess thats the difference in a 60,000 dollar sports car!

wow, i would die if i was going that fast! i couldnt even imagine that speed. i just dont think that a mkiii could go that fast because of its aerodynamics. it would lift off and fly!!!

arnt the mk3's more aerodynamic than the mk4? I thought i remember reading that somewhere. lol where safely could you do 190mph, i think the only place i would attempt to do 190 is at an airport landing strip lol
