I've atually seen that car (the one from Autobahn Motorsports). The turbo on that thing is rediculous. It would give a peterbuilt turbo envy.Lately the Supra community has been less interested in 1/4 times, their new love is the Mile.
The Texas Mile was last weekend. The Supra still holds the record for street car top speed(beating out TT Gallardos, TT Ford GTs & TT Vipers)
Not even close.The flying mile is measured in top speed, not elaped time.
I think the record is right aroound 200 mph, which is pretty damn good from a stop.
Yeah, the Autobahn crew seem like good guys. It was really sad to hear that the top 2 Supras broke this past event.Good lord, they are up to 247???
Thats awsome. When I talked to the guys from Autobahn it was at a meet like 4 or 5 years ago, but at that time they claimed they held the record.
Flying mile of a hell of a tough event. Engine has to make peak power for waaay longer than it does when drag racing.

We made this video to be both fun and informative.
That's so awesome.After going under the knife for a 2J bottom, Borg Warner single, Getrag 6 speed, HKS twin. . (and a "few other things"). Needs tuning. . But so good so far. .
