    For the numbers, they are slow in the 1/4 compared to tons of other cars with the same power/weight :hs:

    People think 'more power is better!' The first 9 second supra, by Sound Performance, had a t-63 or t66 I forget. Still most people insist on going with something like a T88 and making 800+rwhp. Also, the IRS is really not set up for drag.

    Well most people like to highway race now, and a t-88 supra properly tuned would be extremely hard to beat on the highway.

    It's not totally the IRS. The rear diff has a habit of transfering all the power to 1 wheel when the car is high hp and on drag slicks and shifting in to 3rd gear. Meaning, instantly hitting the wall at like 140mph

    Yeah, traction and driver skill had a lot to do with me running a best of 12.80 at almost 114 MPH instead of [email protected] in my Mustang. Traction and skill have a lot to do with times for EVERY car.
