Slow start with 2000 rpm launch...
How about at the strip? Supras still hold the record. And there are plenty of Supras that make big power and kill on the highways. Supras aren't dead.Have you raced any GT-R's with your Supra, hitman? I find it hard to believe that any Supra will have a chance with these cars at the power they're now making. Consistency is on the GT-R's side my dude.
First of all both cars are from different times. You don't need to strip all the guts out of a supra and stick a jet engine to go fast either. They do pretty well with bolt on and can hang with a stock CBA GT-R with full BPU mods.stock for stock, who wins? GT-R or Supra? Sure, if you strip all the guts out of Supra and then stick a jet engine in it, sure it will spank many cars around. But then again, do the same level of mods to GT-R and who wins? I used to have a Supra (ooooooooold one, 86) and have a soft spot for the car but it's not apples for apples comparo, unless both are equally modded.
The Supra won't exactly die out unless all of the cars magically combust. There will still be Supras driving around the road in the future just in smaller numbers due to time. A car dying out means that they won't be driven on the street or used in racing anymore. There are guys who still have monzas and Camaros from the 70's that drag race all the time doing 9, 8 and 7 second passes. And as for 9 second supras that can drive to the grocery store, there are plenty that can.the fact that a car thats as old as the supra is can be compared to a modern-day car is pretty impressive. supras are no joke when modded i think we all know that however the gtr is on a whole different level. there arent too many 9 second supras you can drive to the grocery store for instance. not saying that alone automatically makes the gtr a better car but the modding of gtrs will only continue to get better and eventually the supra will die out.
having said that, i HIGHLY respect supras. always exchange a thumbs up when i see one on the road (which doesnt happen too often)
