Anyway, you comment you had never seen a Supra on a road course. Well, there are many owners who take their cars to HPDE events and Supras have won many time attact events and series including One Lap of America and many tuner shootout events until R35 GT-Rs started its domination.

You claiming to never seeing a Supra on a road course seems ignorant and shows you are not that active with road racing scene. Supras always get criticized for being dyno queens because high hp monsters usually take all the highlights. With stock twins or a small single turbo at around 500~600hp with fast spool, Supras make one hell of a road racer. How do I know? I have been there, done that, and have witnessed many great examples.
Fair enough. I live here in the states and have never seen one on the track, and that is in SoCal, where the HPDE scene is heavy. I know about Tom's Supras and Castrols Supra etc etc so I'm not ignorant to the fact of their previous history in professional racing. So perhaps in Japan they are all that great but over here all I'm saying is you just don't see them on the track. Call it a culture difference.

And I still hold I like the S85 better... hah
