That Supra drag car sounds amazing when it spools. Last time I went to the drag strip someone had a 7 second turbo car there. Low 7s just tuning it, not competing. Purpose built, full fiberglass body, huge slicks, etc. It sounded like sex on wheels when it launched.
I think their in like saudi arabia or something

It is a long way from an 8.8 to a 7.7.

^^^ sure is. my buddy has 2 sick *** supra's. he built up an mk3 supra, perfect body/paint. cage, built motor, veilside intake/tbody, 1600cc injectors, he had an 88mm turbo also, made 1,056whp and best run to date was 8.76 @ 162mph iirc. he found a 4th gen. with a 800whp setup already in it, caged also, same tein flex suspension as his mk3. so he took the 800whp motor and put it in his mk3 for his daughter. now he's swapping his setup into the mk4 supra except he's going with a 101mm turbo now. justin nenni will be tuning it as soon as he's done. (one of the top tuner's that specializes in supra's in the world) can't wait to get a ride in that beast! good luck to your friend, that flt. blk paint looks sinister!

that 8.8 run was at 30psi and he didn't get a good start. I have no idea if he can break the record as I'm not too sure of his skills or any of that, but with the new turbo he should be much faster at 45psi. He still needs to dial in a bunch of stuff for traction and whatnot. That was his first test run with the 91mm when he blew it up.

spoolin2bars - your friend probably knows mine, his name's Orian. Unfortunately I won't get a ride in his since it only has 1 seat. His power was around the same with the 88mm at around 1100whp. Your friend going after the same record or using bigger tires?

Wow...there's something I've ever seen: A 1000+whp Supra that can't go any faster without breaking parts.

Not that I'd kick it out of the garage or anything.

he was originally building it for a certain class. that org. is now gone. i think he just wants to go fast as possible now! regardless of class. but yeah he was trying to go for the radial tire record at one point.
