Thread: Boost Logic Supra hits 241.8 Mph in Standing Mile

    Default Boost Logic Supra hits 241.8 Mph in Standing Mile

    Great run by SW (very nice guy too, BTW).

    I ran my Supra at the Texas Mile last weekend. The previous record was 229.6 by me in another Supra. The first pass off the trailer was 234.5 on the limiter in 5th. We upped the limiter 100 rpm to 9600 , bolted on some taller slicks, upped the boost 2-3 lbs and ran 241.8 in the standing mile. This is amazing car, 2 weeks ago I ran 8.47@176 in the 1/4 mile. We turned the boost down, put on the street suspension and went to the mile. If any of you are going to SEMA, it will be in one of the HRE booths..

    It was stable as a rock, the camera was shaking, it was scared.

    We are going to have some gears made for it next year, I think we can go 245 in the mile. I would love to line up next to a Bugatti or a Koenigseg, I think my car would take them..

    For reference, 1100-1300hp Vettes and Vipers can touch about 220 mph in the standing mile. The Veyron can almost hit 205 mph, but not quite.

    I'm wondering if this is the same Supra I saw that ran mid-8's at Supras Invade Las Vegas this year. I think it was this one. I know Boost Logic brought two cars and one was black. Their other one was red/black, was definitely not street legal, and ran a 8.11 @ 175.9 mph.

    [edit]Just found a picture of the engine bay from the "Show-and-Shine", this is definitely the same car. I have my own pictures from SILV but I'm at work and don't have access to them right now.[/edit]

    Yeah, that is sick fast. My buddies over at Titan Motorsports here in Orlando are the Supra gurus, and are one of the benchmarks for Supra tuners as well as pro drag racing teams sponsored directely by Toyota. I hear they are planning on running something special for the standing mile next year, they also have a develepment program for the 911tt. He asked me about running a Noble in the standing mile, but unfortunately the aero sucks for that kind of thing.
