    Single Turbo 350Z vs MkIII Supra

    Last night on my way home from my buddy's condo I decided to take a detour through the Bahamas to get out my speed cravings after watching the premier of the neason of Top Gear UK on BBCA.

    While I was on the Bahamian highway a Black MkIII Supra pulled up beside me. He downshifted and gave the car some throttle to sound his blow off valve. I dropped down to 4th at about 70mph and did the same. I let him jump 1 car length ahead before I put my foot down. I shut down at a touch over 125mph and was close to 2 bus lengths ahead.

    The driver was a cool guy, as we both rolled down our windows and exchanged a thumbs up and went about our commute. It was refreshing to see somebody who wasn't a jerk after loosing a race.

    So your car is also a sailboat?
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    Oh I know. I was actually expecting the him to walk me, but I guess I was lucky to find one that was probably on stock turbos still.

    Ahh the old MkIII supra. The poor mans supra. My buddy had one of those, the 7MGTE engine is nice but doesnt have the same power handling capability as the 2JZGTE. Lots of people just do a 2JZ motor swap. The car is heavy though, about 3800 lbs.

    Never realized it was so heavy.
