First off I don't know how this guy didn't wax me, I've already started sending emails to my friends around town with Supra's to see if anybody knows this guy. I want to know what's wrong with his car. Anyways, on to the race. Left the movies last night around midnight and was going to my parents house with the wife. Was turning at a light and looked across the intersection and saw a Supra with a front mount on it. I made my turn and went on, when his light changed he caught up with me but stayed about 100 yards behind me (this was a 4 lane road). He paced me back there for about a mile and then comes up beside me hard and revs a few times. By this time I had caught up to another car and had to move over behind the Supra. Once I got around the car my wife screamed "He's nodding his head, punch it!!" Now the weird part. I pulled on him from a 30mph roll. Not a lot, maybe a little over a car length. And it stayed that way to around 90 mph. Now I am running my Stg 2.5 map on my UTEC, but come on, could this feasably happen? Only mods I could see were the FMIC, and a melon shooter. If he was stock other than that could a WRX with my mods (see my profile if you want them listed) really beat him?

A stock tt supra usually dynos around 260whp...so if you have 230-240 whp and you are 500lbs lighter then....maybe. A short race you might have a chance.

Good kill

Yep...I doubt he stayed with me until 90 just to hear my nice sounding exhaust ;)

Uh, no. Stock Supra's dyno about 300 rwhp.
I doubt that... Unless they are making more than the factory-claimed 320HP at the crank...

E46M3's with 333 at the crank make about 265-275 at the rear wheel, so I'd expect a stock Supra to dyno in that region

:eek:

First off, you have the best wife EVER!!! You don't even want to know about my relationship with my fiance and racing....:rolleyes:

Second, Stock Supras make 320 hp crank (prob ~ 285-295 RWHP) what's your stage 2.5, ~260-270 AWHP? With the FMIC and exhaust ( if that's all) he could be making upwards of 320+ to the wheels! This means that either he "cant drive" or "was'nt racing" for starters OR he was tuned like poop! I think those are the only reasons you won the race.....

TurboXS advertises their Stage II gives out 225whp. The 2+ i assume means uppipe and possibly IC hoses which give like 2-5whp. I doubt you are tuned as well as TXS is (no offense, I just doubt it).

Anyway, max of 230whp, against a Supra.

You got lucky...nice kill :cool:

Through a friend I found out who I raced, his only mods really are the front mount and the axle back. The car is a '95...I'm trying to get in direct contact with him to schedule a rematch. I will post the results. I did ask if my friend (also a WRX driver) had ever raced the supra, but he hasn't.

Nice kill,and you entertained teh wife at the same time. ;)
She likes to race. She drives my 5.0 to work every day and loves the expression on guys faces when she revs at them. She said she likes their expression even more after she beats em :D

HAHAH I just word from my sources that that race went down. Everyone thought it was me that raced Vic. I was like, nooo that was another friend of mine with his wrx. They said something about Vic getting pulled over, and u got away? Did u ever see any cops?

Hehe...that was my friend over on NASIOC that knows the Supra owner. He got busted right after I let off and made my turn to go to my house. :eek3:
