I try to race just about any car. I seen a newer Toyota Supra (They don't make them anymore, do they?), probably about a 1997. Very clean. It was a limited edition.

I just now read that that car has a 6 cylinder turbo!!! With 320 hp???? Shiiieett!!!!!

Is that right?

Anyway, I had my ass handed to me by him. We lined up side by side at a red light, I asked him if he wanted to race, he said "sure". I'm sure he was laughing in his mind. But he was cool.

Well, I knew I was going to lose, but when the light turned green, I got a pretty good launch (as usual-these MX-6s are good off the line), and had about 1/2 carlength on him. I grabbed 2nd, and about the time I was at 4K rpms, I heard him miss 2nd!! Well,his engine stepped on up! As soon as those rpms got up on his car, he freakin' flew by me.

He only got about 3 carlengths in front of me, then we both had to slow down for traffic and a red light.

I asked him if he had the turbo, he said yes. He was cool. We laughed and drove off with peace signs.

I got smoked, but it was still fun.

You think that's bad...

I raced an older Viper R/10 about a month ago while we were already going about 45... I knew I was toast but I was on the way to my friends house and I just wanted to tell him that I raced a Viper. I would have loved to only be behind 3 car lengths.

You know....

I've always enjoyed seeing other cars that can Haul a$$, actually do it!

I think I was so close to him only because he really missed 2nd gear!!

Fun:)

That is a funny story. Those Supra turbos are super fast. I think Toyota only made them to be an "in your face" type of car. Someone memtioned that they raced a Viper.

See my post one this type of race.

smoked by a supra twin turbo!

First day I got my mx-6. I was on my way back to work after droping off the guy I bought my car from. Thought I was the fastest on earth (coming from a '91 escort GT) We were on the freeway and I seen him. Didn't have a clue how fast those cars were until that day!! B-4 I knew it I was at about 95 mph or so. He dropped 1 gear...never seen him again! Dru from Cali.
