Do you want 600hp or 600rwhp? Also, what do you want to do with it? Dragrace? Highway rolls? Roadrace? Autocross? Daily drive? Drift? etc...

Thumbs down

20yr, Supra, somewhat tuned up to 365hp (don't know what whp is), street racing and trying to beat a SC Viper.

Not to be mean but ICBC would love more this kind of drivers and force the TC to put the 15years rule to rest.

For what it's worth, I believe that we should give 1993suprawr the benefit of the doubt. On a forum like this, through our Supra 'brotherhood' (and 'sisterhood too, where appropriate), we can share not only technical solutions, but positive coaching in other areas like driver training, honing skills through practicing on race tracks, and the best approaches to safely deal with horsepower increases. Even without us, 1993suprawr will very likely still find a way to make his already-very-capable already-modified GT sportscar even faster. If we turn him away, we'll probably loose our only opportunity to help him get on the right track. I really have seen some very young Supra owners mature extremely quickly and become very positive members of the Supra community when they were given a chance to particpate. Just my two cents.
