Yeah supras are nice... but they aren't vettes!

I've never heard of a supra making 1300whp on pump gas at only 14psi of boost have you?

meh whatever, sure its fast as hell (6 second 1/4), but in no way would it be steet-able at all. i dont see it very difficult to make a track only car that fast.

now...unless i didnt read far enough into the article, I think I have a valid point.

And Supras in the same speed range are streetable?

You don't make any sense.

I'd certainly take a newer Vette over a Supra anyday of the week.

i dont think he was quite saying that a 1200 hp supra would be more suitable to dd than a 1200 hp vette. i think that was more of a general statement for all cars that have that much power

Nope, you didn't read it at all... the 6 second car is his 10.5 outlaw class drag car (that is shown in the video). Only reason they mentioned that is to show it's the same guy who was having this car built. The actual street car is the second one in the pics. It does not run a 6 second quarter. It should be totally streetable, although it will be quite a hand full if you put the throttle down, but not as bad as the 1300whp car. You can still control 700whp if you have enough tire.

Who cares what it is I would take that vette and have a field day with it. Thats one sweet a$$ car either way. Give the man some props on that build.

No I haven't but not the point I was making. Just my personal preference. I see a modded vette probably 4-5 times a day around where I live. Nice, Fast cars. Just not for me.

Give me a mild 500rwhp single supra and I'll die happy.

I'd like to see YOU try to make a 6 second car, even with an unlimited budget.

I believe it would be easier to make a 6 second straight line car than a 10 second street car that can turn. all you "need" is a car to base it off of (gto, f body, vette, mustang, take your pick of others) strip the interior, get a big engine, build it, boost would be needed along with meth, build the driveline, get some slicks and you're good to go. there's obviously more to it but that is the basic principle.


besides, what fun is straight line speed? it is basically useless in day to day driving. the car is impressive yes, but with all the extra power they basically ruined the natural handling aspect of the car making it useless at anything other than a drag strip. you don't see all HIGH power cars posting good times around a track like the nurburgring. the GTR only has 485 and a full heavy interior.

When they're doing 80 mph in the slow lane and you're merging into it, (like north of Denver on I25) that's more useful than getting run off the road but being able to turn on a dime.

If day-to-day is your main concern, just get the base model of whatever brand, and skip the stupid arguments about what is "fun."

oh... somehow i've never had a problem merging onto the freeway. neither in my poor handling (for on ramp speed)/slow grand am, nor my better handling and much quicker wrx. I'm pretty sure you don't need 600HP to merge safely onto a freeway. and if you do, you're doing it wrong.

Now you're arguing for the hell of it, the point was straight line performance is useful and can be fun, and if its day-to-day driving, why even get a WRX -- to get in and out of parking lots faster? You skip from general to specific absurd examples, and contradict yourself.
