My supra needs a diet. Badly.

Quite literally, the supra drives like a modern S2k. Numb steering that is hyperresponsive, and an excessively tail happy nature.

Yeah media portrays the MKIV as a straight line car only but it’s certainly not. Lots of people build them that way to do ‘Mexico’ type racing but she can really handle well if setup right.

My buddy had a 93.5 with a T67 single. This was in the 90s (way before F&F). Drove it a handful of times. Violently fast on the highway but scary on the turns.

Yeah.. that’s exactly my point. Power delivery has to do a lot with how a car behaves. Those old school turbos were either on or off and nothing in between which upsets the car coming out of a turn and going WOT. A nicely setup car with a linear power delivery coupled with a nice Suspension setup (coilovers, sway bars etc) will yield ya with a very rewarding car when the turn comes up.

Another thing to consider also is if you drove a Targa car vs. Hardtop car. The difference is rather drastic in terms of handling. Single turbo cars remotely adhere to the concept of balance. Hence your sentiment about the platform being dismal when the turn comes up but your sampling was of a car that not setup or modified from its stock form where the factory balance was muddled and not enhanced.

This is not true at all. I’ve been in plenty of MkIV Supras that handled well. It was always more of a ‘GT’ car, but the crazy power you could make and highway pulls overshadowed what a great all around car it is/was.

It's hard not to view the MK4 as anything but a straight line car when 7-second quarter-mile times are plastered all over the internets.


But, that's the folly with the 86. It's a hardtop Miata that the internet wants to be a rear-drive godzirra kirra.
