My friend is racing in the street tire class with his '94 Supra... I'd love to be able to compete with you guys someday - but y'all are running on street tires what it used to take a big v8 and slicks to do! :-)

When I used to have my Mickey Thompson-shod 11-second Mustang (11.90's @ ~115mph) I decided to take a run on him while we were both on street tires. NOT a good idea. I ran a 12.95 @ 116 (funny how lack of traction can increase your mph, huh?) and he ran a 12.51 @ ~114.

He got me by 1/2 a second on street tires! ARGH. I guess that's the nice part of an 2JZ/automatic with lag - he doesn't get any wheelspin off the line and if he can keep his drag radials clawing for traction in 2nd gear he's off to mid 12's. The bastich. :-)

Even if it were safe, I wouldn't even THINK of stepping to him on the freeway.

Aloha,
Richard...

note: corrected my 1/4 mph figures. Thought they looked a tad high, and found some timeslips. Ahhh the beauty of hindsight. :-)

I ran in the first IDRC event here and just missed the quick 8 in the street class. The thing was that there were only 3 rounds of qualifications and I won my races in the first 2 rounds posting better ETs than many cars in the afternoon sun. When the 3rd round came along I blew an IC hose. Everyone posted their best ETs because it was so much cooler than the first two rounds . The two cars I beat earlier ended up posting better ETs in the 3rd round and they both made it into the quick 8.

FWIW my best with that car was a 13.0 @ 108 mph (street tires and pump gas).

Nah, I've since sold that car and am looking for my next "project". Still haven't decided on picking up the WRX or not.
