It's just like calling an Asian a "Slanteye" or something that demeans or puts down someone or something because it's different or not what you think is the best.

I understand it's not your car of choice (since it's obvious you generalized every Japanese car by saying "IT") by saying "RICEBURNERS".

I'm not trying to start anything as far as an argument, it's just like someone was saying at the BMW Forum that every Japanese car is a Ricer<not really knowing what that term means even to those of us who own Japanese vehicles.

I love Corvettes that's why I visit this forum, I've always loved them and I have a healthy enough respect for them not to put them down in no way, shape, form or fashion.

Why can't anyone who drives a non American or in this case a Japanese car get the same respect by not using negative connotative words to describe the makes of cars that you are talking about?
I belive he had already apologized (which I did not think neccesary) and you are the one who brought up the term racist here.

I thought that was a pretty impressive car.
Yeah, that would have been awesome had they made it. It doesn't seem too hard either, they could have just dropped in the M5 engine, right?

The on in the M3GTR was only a 4.0 litre but the M5's would work spectacularly. The 4.0 Litre made around 450 hp and 350 lb-ft torque.

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.
How olds are you? Do you drive? Have you ever driven a Corvette?

Umm, interesting subject we have here.

First, how are we defining Supercar since we seem to have come way off topic. Personally, I don't consider my Supra a supercar but I know a lot of people have called it that.

Secondly, At least 2 Supras have broken well into the 8's just not consistantly. I personally know of one being built that may be the third car into the 8's and as of now...he still has the a/c and radio. Can't tell you anymore than that.

Thirdly, Yes, we Supra owners are indeed " Dyno-Queens". But hell, that's what makes us fun. And although we struggle getting the suckers to hook up on DOT tires it allows us to at least brag a little, on the Dyno at least.

Finally, I like Corvettes. My mom has owned numerous Corvette's and I drove two of them while she had one. She is considering the purchase of another one even now. But she and I will be the first to admit. For the same price it would cost to buy her ZO6., We could build yet another bad-ass Supra that'll give it a run for it's money...in all catagories

pick please dont start. And why because I dont drive yet nor have I driven a vette makes me a newbie cuz I have less posts then you? Ive been hre longer then you...

Any1 way well maybe I am a newb cuz I dont know much about the 427TT and Im not a gear head (yet) and Hakka was nice and maturely debated the topic with me thanks Hakka. Supra650RSP thankyou thats what I was saying basically what is a supercar. I dont think the 427TT is a supercar nor your Supra. There both fast as hell but IMO I cant stand the 427TT and just wish when I talk about true "supercars" that no1 brings up a souped up car.

There is obviously something wrong with that corvette which indeed should put out 650hp on the dyno.

How much more is left in that Supra? I'm willing to bet that the Supra is all that it can be. I know the Vette has more power available. I will have my supercharged 427 ZO6 finished in about a month. I'm putting my ass on the line now and saying that my car will have 650RWHP on tap with more available. It just comes down to cubes. At some point that little Supra engine is going to be maxed out. I really hate when someone comes in and implies, because it cost them less to make the same horsepower, their car is somehow better. The Supra has not even been available in this country for several years and the Corvette is still here. Frankly Lingenfelter makes nice stuff but his prices are high and he puts out concervative stuff. I know that twin Turbo Vette has more horsepower on tap. Lingenfelter is concerned about reliability and thus his projects are toned down some with that in mind. I'll post my dyno numbers once my project is done.

Can't wait to see your car and some dyno results and you're right Lingenfelter does care enough about his car's reliability and that is the reason he won't really unleash the beast.

I believe I either heard or read somewhere that he has his own personal car with power and torque so insane that he wouldn't even bother to tell anyone what he was really running under the hood.

That whatever it is he is driving has got to be sick and I'm certain he could give a rats @$$ about what kinda reliability he'll get out of his personal car.

Good luck with the car.

Japanese cars arent real?!? Whoa I was driving in one the other days hmmm must of been my imagination....

And if you would learn how to read I didnt come in hear boasting about how much I hate the car. What my real issue was people bragging about how it could beat this, this and this when it is a "souped" car not a true "supercar". My goal was to try and prevent annoying little 12 year olds going into every room talking trash.

Why cant we discuss it maturely...
