I've had the Supra for almost two weeks now and it's had the one garage stall we have because the door lock on the driver's side is broken right now. My neighbor knew I got something new because our nice 4Runner has been sitting outside(it gladly offers up it's spot for to older Toyota).

Anyway, my neighbor has about an '88 RX-7 in great shape and he on a number of occasions has told me how well it goes. Now yesterday I was coming home and he was working outside when I pulled up so naturally he congratulated me on the new car and I asked him if he wanted to go for a ride...took him out for a 10-minute spin with some hard accelerations...well it's all relative with a mostly stock car(I only have intake and exhaust upgrades), but his comment after the drive:

"Glad I didn't challenge you to a drag race before this ride"---and the Supra earns a little more respect. Can't wait to go turbo!

But don't forget, he can hold the gear alot longer then you.

12 is max i think, but some have a fuel cut around 9. It's easy when your "piston" is rolling instead of horribley shooting up and down.

Hey Dogstar, My RX7 should be ready to roll in a couple of weeks, complete rebuild, street port, hopefully the header and carb work - anticipate I'll break 15's - My Mk2 will take it but should give it a try with yours.

lol, gimme enough time to get a cold air intake and an exhaust.
if your breaking 15s, ill get eaten alive, i think my cars pretty fast for not having any visible work done, and im pretty sure its not stock internally, cause it hangs with stuff that should destroy me (92 laser RS, for example)
