Red face raced a Supra Twin Turbo

I was riding in my car (1999 GT Stang 35th anniversary limited edition convertible) when a Supra Twin Turbo stopped at the light just beside me. I took a look at my girl friend, good seams like she didn't see the car. I look at the guy looks like he wants to race...

Light turned green... first gear Oupss where the car... the guy is way back... OK I guess he did not have a good start??

We stop at the second light he did even dear to look at me... so I thought that it was over. I took a look at my girl friend... She doesn't look to please Light turned green, he floor it. What the hell... I floor it too, first second the car is way back... I just ate the guy and my girl friend gave me a look (you know the kind of look when she have those knife in her eyes and want's to kill you with it) and said: “Don’t you dare do that again!” :P lol

Anyway, I thought Supras where faster then that.

Why did she care that you raced him? If my girlfriend got pissed at that I'd probably punch her in the face!(just kidding, she tries to race people also )

Ok the TT Supra wasnt racing. Or it wasnt a TT. Or he was towing a trailor that you didnt see.

That is unless you forgot to mention your mods.

After speaking with my friends we figuer out that the guy was a ricer cause he had Twin Turbo written on his car... So I gues it wasn't a real one. Anyway that explain a lot :P

Default Wings and badges

Lots of Supra owners put the wing and the TT badges on regular Supras for what they consider "eye appeal". I've seen several like that, but they usually know better than to race.

There are a bunch still in stock trim around where I live. I mean there isn't a ton of them because they haven't made them in such a long time...but I'd say 90% of the ones I see are still stock...a guy or girl somewhere in their 50s behind the wheel. The last thing on their mind is racing their car. But that seems to me the majority of people I run across with fast cars. Most of them are scared to even floor it and feel the power of their car that they spent big bucks on...let alone drag race it. "Take it over 5,000 rpms?! Are you crazy?!"

Saw a turbo'd Supra put the whoop on an a new Trans Am the other day. I was sitting at the Sonic eating my No. 2 bacon cheese burger when I hear all this racket. Looked over to the street and see this Supra pulling like crazy on a TA. They were both on it, and that Supra sounded flat out awesome. Stock? Probably not.

How fast did you get up to? Those things arent great off the line but they are INSANE on the top end when the boost spools up.

Though it sounds like you found a damn ricer

I am dying to get my chance at a TT supra, I ran one when I was H/C/I car and started to pull tell about 70 (started at 20) and we had to let off. A guy I know here has a single turbo (big mods) and we raced when I was NA and I could hold him off tell the top of second then he just drove around me. This year it should be more interesting.

Some facts about real TT Supras short and blunt:

As stated, in stock form they aren't better than high 13 - low 14 second in the 1/4 mile.

Modded they're crazy top-enders.

They can put down insane HP #'s but aren't great in the torque dept which means impressive dyno sheets but poor times. It also explains their ability to get great trap speeds.

60' times are horrible and can be taken off the line easily, don't try running one from a 60mph roll (who does that anyway?).

Most owners don't know how to drive'em. They're uppity about their HP but don't want to talk torque.

In short, high TT Supra HP & their inherent low torque will give them big speeds in the 1/4 mile but you'll beat them to the finish line first. They're the ultimate dyno queens.
