supras will keep u with the fastest japanese cars simply because they are definetly one of the fastest imports. i believe how fast someones supra, gt-r, or watever is directly related to how much money they r willing to put into their car. simple as that.

Well if you are thinking about drag racing the supra is the top dog, but when it comes to circuit style racing the weight and chassis design are going to hurt you bad if you want to be super competitive. Also are you thinking of a mk3 or mk4?

Actually, the Mkiv Supra Turbo was "top dog" in its class ('90s GT sportscar) for roadracing. About the only thing it doesn't do great at is autocross, due to its weight and rwd. The NSX is light enough to do okay at autocross (despite it's limited horsepower). The GT-R's AWD helps compensate for it's heavy weight for autocross.

Although many have, to me, 'b@st@rdized' the Mkiv Supra Turbo for drag racing, it's far from the ideal platform for that application. The IRS and 4-wheel independent wishbone coilover suspension, beefy front sway bar, 4-way ABS, big 4-piston front brake calipers, etc., etc. are all designed for roadracing, not drag racing.

NB: Please consider posting any help requests in a new thread instead of asking me for help privately. About 99.9+% of the time, private help requests end up covering great information that could be very valuable to other forum members. If you have a good reason for needing the help request to be private, I'll consider it. If not, then why not give everyone else the opportunity to pitch in too, and/or learn from the information? Remember, there's no such thing as a dumb question. We're all here to help within this family of Supra owners.
