Default National Supra event in Houston

Thursday-Motorsports ranch Houston (track)
Friday- dyno day
Sat-show and shine + test and tune
Sunday-drag races

I did not go.

You've seen one you've seen them all but here are some photos.

I think there will be more later tonight because I know they are all at the drag strip right now.

I've always wanted to go to one of those. Hopefully "one-lap" at hallett will be equally cool.

yeah, pretty much every competative drag racing team now does an air/water box in the passenger seat area.

I was at TX2K5, showing my MKIII Supra (3rd gen). It was a lot of fun, but I can imagine it getting boring if you aren't "part of the group". I had a ton of friends there so it was fun for me but I've lost contact with a lot of them now.

1174 hp isn't something to sneeze at... I've seen that personally and it's the only time I've been to a dyno.

If my miata made 1000hp, it would probably run better than an 11.

Talk **** all you want about the Supra. It is hands down one of the best cars to get out of japan. It has one of the best platforms for any type of racing. I love it.... 3L I6 Twin turbo. You can make 1000whp on stock internals, stock tranny, stock rear end. Can any other car do that?

I've made 913 to the wheels on the stock bottom-end. 838 on a completely un-opened motor, no cams no nothin'. This was years ago, back when those numbers were impressive...

The car is pretty amazing its the owners that are almost all useless sacks of crap.

Wow, thanks for the link to "The Shuttle"! I haven't thought about that car in ages.
