hehehe look what I found

I dont like vettes but im just tired off people everytime I mention a good Supercar they mention the Sledge or the 427TT. There nice cars and fast but not supercars I did have a good discussion with Scott02 and I dont want to get in an arguement but rather discuss like I did with Scott.

At any given time on any given day anything can happen. Personally I can't stand rice burners but you have to be impressed with what they can accomplish. Putting down one brand or another only means you do not fully appreciate cars in general.

thats fine and thats wht I wanted to do to discuss this topic. You go into a forum Im talking about the new Veryon and some1 always has to go Sledgehammer or 427TT. That just pisses me off so you know what Im gonna say Titan Supra when some1 says one of the 2 cars.

And Bowtie if I dont like Corvettes and I put down your 427TT means I dont appreciate cars whoa you need to listen to what your saying. If I did not appreciate cars in general I would not be going to these forums... I just dislike Vettes but you dont like rice burners so I guess you dont appreciate cars huh? no Im guessing you do obviously but I just wanted to make those annoying people, who always bring up the damn vette, shutup. I think it is an amazing automobile but I just dont like it.

Personally I don't care about supercars at all. McLarens, Twin turbo billion hp Corvettes by Lingenfelter, all that is nice and everything but you can't afford that stuff. The prices start getting way out of hand, very few people in the world own them, and to me they just appear to be another concept.

You have to appreciate supercars. They are one of the most important groups of the car tree (ricers at the bottom ). The prices are out of hand, but they are hand-built quality engineering. And because only a handful of people can afford them, that makes them rara and even more of a pleasure to see one. Without supercars, all cars around the world would just be "normal", and most of them boring. You have to appreciate supercars. Saying that they are not amazing is like saying muscle cars weren't important in the evolution of the automobile. Even if you do not care for them, you must call a spade a spade, and say that they are all works of art.

I wasn't directing that at you, but you made my point. Just about every car has it's place. I respect the Metro for being able to give 50 miles to gallon and fill a void for cost effective transportation. My point was everyone has their favorites and will be biased to some degree or another and slamming another one's opinions seems pointless. It's all in what you want from a car. I like Vette's, I work on them day in day out, never worked on a Supra but I know they are a force to be reckoned with but I'm not gonna be negative about them

I'd like to state this first and make it clear, I love both the Vette and Supra!!

I still dont think the Supra is necessarily faster than the Ling. TT, didn't it run and 8.95 lately and is still being pushed farther?? No doubt I bet the Supra could also go faster but for some of us that like it is because it's a Muscle car, small block engine's are just sweet as hell. But Supra's are also a very fast car with they're inline sixes, I"m not saying the're not, I'd personally like to see full racing specs of both these cars and lap times before we say which is better than the other.

How would they seem boring? A 350 hp Corvette is anything but boring, same goes for the 03 Cobra and 01 Cobra, Cobra R, Viper, I mean the list goes on of cars that are fun to drive. They don't even have to be the most powerful either.

I appreciate the supercars like Lamborghinis and Ferraris, what I was talking about though that I don't care for are the high horsepower tuned cars. Like the Venom Vipers, Lingenfelter Corvette, that high powered Supra. They're power is impressive but I just don't like talking about them. Usually arguements will come up about well this supercar is better then this supercar, and they just sound lame.

I know exactly what you mean man but I just needed to get back at the people who talk about the Vette all the time. I more then appreciate the Ferrari's, Lambo's, etc. because those are true supercars that were put into production and not high end souped up cars.

And this 427TT ran an 8.95 on all street legal stuff?

Yes, an 8.95 on DOT streets, with a full leather interior, AC, CD player, etc. Supra's put down some pretty impressive numbers, but they're dyno queens. For some reason (unknown to me) they can't seem to put down the power very well. How many street legal Supras do you know of running 8s?

Why wouldn't you consider the Lingenfelter a supercar? Its handbuilt in limited quantities, with a pricetag in the supercar range, more than enough power, a reworked suspension, etc. People generally consider european tuner cars, such as TechArt and Gembella Porsches or Hamann and AC Schnitzer Bimmers to be supercars, so why not the Vette? This guy's homebuilt T66 is not a supercar, for the same reason that any homebuilt car is not considered a supercar. A Veilsde or HKS car, however, I would consider a supercar.

Not bad thats actually pretty damn fast 8.95 but I think that Titan Supra ran mid to high 8's Im not positive so dont go crazy and you got a link or any proof of this 8.95 just so I can check it out. Well I guess you would have to talk to some very high up auto guy on what is considered a Supercar and what isnt. My guess of it not being considered a Supercar is production number and stuff like that.

You know how reliable the 427TT is though with all that tuning like could I drive like a Lambo everyday and not have a problem?

you'll have many more problems with Lambos than with the Lingenfelter. The reason they don't run crazy amounts of boost on their cars is because of the reliability issue. I believe they are running 8-10 lbs. on the 427TTs. Without altering the boost, Lingenfelter offers a 2 year/24,000 mile warranty. If you up the boost, you'll be pushing over 900hp at the crank, but without your warranty.

Man that can go either way. You know of any Corvettes in your area running 8's street legally? I sure as hell don't.

427TT bah, I'd rather have an L-88 427.
