    If you're up for the care, I think they're one of the coolest most aesthetic cars out there.

    Get ready to get mogged by crossovers that arent even racing. Also blowing the turbo or head gasket, various electrical problems , oil burning, coolant leaks, rattling plastic & panels.

    Then if you boost it to the point where you keep up with modern crossovers, you're going to spin out and crash if it doesn't blow up first

    They're fairly heavy, softly sprung, and they don't corner very well as the chassis has a fair amount of flex in it. Also aforementioned headgasket woes, which can be remedied fairly easily. Nice for croozing tho. It was designed to be a GT for yuppies in the 80s to bomb down the highway in. It wasn't designed to be a balls out time attack machine. I personally think it's the best looking Supra. Nice clean lines.

    its the cope poopra when you can't afford the paul walker one everyone actually wants. it still has a 2JZ, but the troony isn't nearly as strong as the MK IV poopra.

      No it doesn't, moron. And the R154 is plenty strong, it's just got a shitty feeling shifter (since it's literally a truck transmission) and one less gear.

      You know, if you learned how to read Toyota model codes, you might not look like a moron right now.

      If that's the case, I'll just get a third-gen Firebird like

      Slow and hard to get parts, I bet. It's a cool car, though, I worked at a Pontiac / Toyota dealer in 1989 and this and the Turbo Trans Am were boss.

    check for cracked subframes, rust around the spare tire compartment. also check beneath the mudflaps for any mud and leaves that would accumulate there. ask the owner if he torqued the head gasket. if you have to change the gasket, use api studs instead of the oem.

    Interior work. The past 35 summers have cooked all the plastic to the point that even closing the door runs the risk of something braking.

      Holding true to the general trend on DA of the less you know the stronger your opinions, very amusing anon.

        considering he's owned one, that would immediately make him more of an authority than anyone here.

            What power level did he break it at and how did it break?

            he didn't mention its power level in that video. he probably broke it doing pulls and launches, since i remember him mentioning that he probably weakened the troony just by doing that in a video where he's talking to nick.

            better than the fangirls who merely know its boat anchor codes. at least he's owned one.

            Let me tell you what an ACTUAL great source of detailed information sounds like:
            >yeah I drag race Supras
            >at about X hundred horsepower (or a torque figure) you start to break input shafts with sticky tyres if you launch too hard
            >yeah I've broken 3 like that so far
            You could form a strong opinion off that, not "yeah I think I probably weakened my troony bro" from some wrenchlet.

            But keep being you that's what makes it so enjoyable to come to DA.

            Yea, you're right. i trust the fan girls who know their boat anchor codes over a guy who's owned one.

            lmao, ANY gearbox will break when you abuse it. that being said, if you actually bother to preload the drivetrain before launching, you greatly extend the life of the gearbox
