Much better still, it felt like there were a hundred racers to every police officer on the streets of Dallas. Outstanding. (With all due respect to any type of police readers) I want California resembled that. It's cop main right here in the SF Bay nowadays. Takes the fun from travelling (Just ask Rob, our Manufacturer-- He's to ONE point on his certificate).

So, SRS is on it's means with the magic process that will put it in stores on August 31st. And thus, the "SRS Auto of the week" attribute is only a few weeks away from finishing up. So allow's get down to service.

A few months ago some of you could remember me talking about Hollywood's take on the world of "Illegal Road Competing"; the "love it or hate it" movie that placed "NOS" in the vocabulary of high school trainees throughout the nation.

At that time, we were speaking about Eclipses. 20,000 dollar sport compacts that can be tuned to hang with with the big boys. Well, a few of the big kids. However also Eclipse tuners have to stand in awe when someone says the word ... SUPRA.

The word didn't constantly enjoy the respect it has today. The Supra's starts we're simple. Back in the days of roller rinks and also AC/DC 8 track cassettes (enjoy your iPod, young people) there was the Celica. Unlike the modern Celica, the 1970's age version was a little cars and truck, discounted by Firebird driving Burt Reynolds fans. Then came the 80's (okay, '79), and with it a new kind of Celica ... the Celica SUPRA! Yet it had not been Super. It's suspension was better suited for back seat lovin' than high speed auto racing and everybody understood it. It made due with a Single Expenses Web cam CRESSIDA engine for f ** k's benefit. Yet hey, it was far better than the Celica, and also an action in the best direction, with disc brakes around.

In 1981 another Celica Supra was released. It was DOHC this time around around, and had independent back suspension, however was still essentially a Celica.

By 1986 the very first true SUPRA was birthed. No more just a "sporty" Celica, this Supra was made to to depend on it's own. Toyota went for it with it's brand-new Flagship. It showed off a new engine style (the 7M-GTE) developed around a 3 liter inline 6 cyndrical tube engine as well as-- get this-- a TURBO and INTERCOOLER !! This stuffed 230 bhp @ 5600 rpm. Outstanding stuff in '86. Regretfully, Toyota launched the car in America WITHOUT the turbo and intercooler. This went down outcome to 200 bhp. And the cars and truck wasn't light at over 3400 lbs. Doubters panned the styling as being "common" as well as overly traditional (looking strangely like a Porsche 944 knock off). However again, it made strides of development with revamped suspension geometry, fatty (for the day) tires, boosted brakes, and also Toyota's TEMS "Electronic Regulated Suspension" for on the fly selectable shock absorber prices. Simply press "Sport" and go. However was it a true sports car? Not truly. The 3rd generation Supra was even more of a Grand Tourer.

In '87 the Third Gen Turbo and also intercooler setup finally came stateside in the "Supra Turbo" and caught the focus of the mullet crowd. Still, the Supra was not a symbol. Probably it was the extra gristle, which took it's weight up to a portly 3600 extra pounds (if you obtained the sport roof covering). It's 6.8 psi of boost was good, yet insufficient to lay a solid insurance claim to the throne held by residential muscle mass, or unique design.

Yet that would all transform in 1993 with the forth generation Supra ... the JZA80. This is the Supra that has actually become epic. THIS is the Supra you will use in SRS to desolate the competitors.
