Ok I always wonder why ppl likes the Supra more than the 3000GT... Personally I like the 3000GT. Also these cars are the best competition... So which one is better?

The supra has a rock solid bottom end and can handle upwards of like 1000 hp on stock internals. Also the suspension is supposedly damn good. I think the vr4 also weighs a good deal more than the supra due to AWD and all wheel steering.

3000gt is a little porky when compared to the supra and others in it's class...and as previously mentioned the supra's stock bottom end can safely handle 900hp...not to mention that the supra is just sooooooooo sexy 8)
Can't hate on the 3000gt though...I remember seeing one of those when I was like 11 or 12 and that's when the addiction started...

the vr4 is extremely heavy and there tranny's aren't very resilient to high power applications

i would stll pick the Supra. I like the RX-7 and 3000 GT, but i hear that reliablility is not the best for these two. As for the 300ZX, it is fast, but it is kind of ugly in my opinion.

supra tt all the way!! out of the box they can run high to mid 13's. the 3000 gt vr4 is capable of doing the same but needs an awd dump off the line to obtain this. this is horrible for the already rather weak drivetrain. and just as a point of reference, i raced my friend's 95 vr4 in my 03 srt-4 on the highway starting at 40 mph. he had a complete turboback exhaust with no cats and i was completely stock. out of three races, he couldnt pull more than a bumper on me.

In defense of the 3000GT you have to keep in mind that it was never really meant to be a "dragstrip" car...with it's excess weight it's more of a touring car when compared to the Supra's, RX-7's, and 300ZX's that once roamed the streets with it....good race though, maybe next time you could get it on video? :)

I thought supra's could run mid 13's to low 13's out of the box? And as far as i know the supra will out handle all those cars save the rx-7. But I love rx-7's, love 300zx'x, love supra's, and love vr-4's. I almost bought a 3000gt when I turned 16 but it was a sl. Good thing i didnt.

The 3000GT is the Japanese Mustang. Too heavy, too sluggish, too gawky, and too much 16-year-old-cheerleader appeal.

Yet still somehow faster than an rsx in stock form :laughing: but that does sound about right

Don't get me wrong though, i'm still a bigger Supra fan than any of the other above mentioned cars

Hehe, seeing a 3000 gt at the age of 11 or 12 is exactly how my addiction started too. :thumbsup:

I personally would take a 3000GT VR4 AWD AWS retractable hardtop(like on the new SL500) over any of the above, but with the Supra right on its heels. My own $.02
