RX-7 VS SUPRA

Discussion in '1998 Mazda Pettit Racing RX-7 Banzai' started by FoRd TiCkFoRd RaCiNg, Aug 10, 2002.

  1. I THINK THAT SUPRAS HAVE GOOD POWER BUT THEY ARENT AS GOOD AS RX-7'S AND THERE NOT AS FAST STANDARD. DONT GET ME WRONG SUPRAS ARE NICE BUT THEY JUST HAVE TROUBLE GETTING INTO THE 9'S AND 10'S WITHOUT PUTTING A T88 TURBO OR SOMETHING ON IT SO OVERALL I THINK THAT RX-7 ARE A LOT BETTER

    I think you should learn where the Caps-Lock button is.

    This is a modded RX-7. You can have better Supras than this car. Though I wouldn't call those Supras, the only thing they got in common with basic Supras is chasis (barely) and extirior.<!-- Signature -->

    i think the rx7 is better cause, out the box the rx7 has a better power to weigh ratio and it handles better, it might not be able to make as much power reliably but i think youd have to do a whole lot more work to a supra to make it kick an rx7's ass and it still wouldnt be easy, but all out the supra would easily make more power. as for handling id give the nod to the rx7

    It's a hard comparison. I love both of these cars. But if you're talking stock to stock. Than in a 1/4 mile I'd have to say the supra. But on a road course, I'd have to go witht he RX7, it has a better power to weight ratio and the RX7 has a perfect 50-50 weight distribution. If I had to chose though, I would have to chose the Supra MKIV TT, becuase you can mod it more and get more horse power out of it with less money. Plus you can make them look better. And the Supra's more efficient and more reliable.

    The Rx-7 would kill it cos it has so much less weight and therefore better power to weight ratio. The supra have lag in low revs therefore is sucks at take off cos once revs are high it just spins the wheels and has no grip. RX-7 ROCKS
     
  7. RX7

    RX7 well beat it stock or modified. RE Amemiya built a RX7 for compition in the Option2 challenge and it wasted every other car there. Supras, skylines, they all spent the day looking at the RX7s beautiful ass.
     
  8. Re: RX7

    rx7 all the way, theres nothing in the world that could stop a fine tuned rotor
     
  9. Re: RX-7 VS SUPRA

    except a broken apex seal
     
  10. Re: RX-7 VS SUPRA

    or a jack ass newb like king mike
     
  11. Re: RX-7 VS SUPRA

    Anyone who buys a rotory and keeps the stock apex seals is a moron and deserves whats coming to them, always upgrade to 3mm apex seals. Sure they still have to be maintained but a well maintained RX-7 will beat a supra to death.
     
  12. Re: RX-7 VS SUPRA

    Omg i can't beleive le level of love I'm felling in this forum. I tell my firend everyday that rotaries are the best engines around why else would the 787b be freakin banned from competition. I mean rotary engine was designed to be perfect and it is save one fatal weakness, the heat it generates. SO ROTRY RULES LET THE WORD GOTO THE PEOPLE.
     
  13. Re: RX-7 VS SUPRA

    Heat generated isn't fatal it can be combated with the proper upgrades to the cooling system. Saying a supra is more reliable it BS because they aren't infact TT supras are among the most unreliable japanese cars.
     
  14. Re: RX-7 VS SUPRA

    I think that these cars are both good (and you could go as far as to say that they are someof the unsung supercars) but I reckon the RX-7 is better (that engine is bloody amazing)
     
  15. Re: RX-7 VS SUPRA

    I just had a look at the Veilside Supra. 1000hp and still its slower than a mclaren F1 97 on a 1/4 mile strip. At least that was the outcome on a video clip I downloaded. ("Best motor" clip I think).
    I have no doubt that the Rx7 Banzai handles better than the supra, and according to the stats it has about the same 1/4mile time as the Mclaren F1. Pettit also has long experience with rx7s and rotary engines. The handling is suppose to be great, and it looks stunning.
    The supra is too big and too heavy. Please correct me if something I have said is wrong.
     
  16. Re: RX-7 VS SUPRA

    i have no idea why anybody even started this. Rx7 would Destroy a supra and most japanese sports cars stock. Rotary is the best engine u can get and once i get my RX7 i am going to beat a Supra and post it on video. So to everybody this forum is a waste of time the only reason why somebody said that a supra would win because the just wanna be different from everybody else but inside they know the truth.
    RX7s Forever baby
     
  17. Re: RX-7 VS SUPRA

    i'd put a smokemist in every supra's face. i have 800 without nos...with nos i can get 1200.
     
  18. Re: RX-7 VS SUPRA

    post a pic of ur car that sounds awsome
     
  19. Re: RX-7 VS SUPRA

    if they spent the same amount of money on the supra that they did on this..the supra...but if you mean stock then ill say supra
     
  20. Re: RX-7 VS SUPRA

    I love supras and Rex's. Just that they are two different cars. Supra has an unbreakable transmission and iron cast block that is bulletproof. So less knowledgable people can enjoy it. Rex's are very time consuming cars. Rex is a track car Supra is a Road car both equaly amazing in my opinion.
     
  21. Re: RX-7 VS SUPRA

    I agree with what your saying just that. Heat is the weakness in a rotary for once the engine overheats once no matter what you do to it. It was always be prone to overheatin and thats not cool.
     
  22. Re: RX7

    a stock twin turbo supra would own a RX-7 i love RX-7's but twin turbo is just unbeatable....plus this isnt the real RX-7 motor
     
  23. Re: RX7

    LOL, I did love that scene =) Anyone else got a chance to watch it?
     
  24. Re:

    to disorient the senses the supra has a way better lookin ass and it can smoke most 7s and u dont know shit bout cars u can put a limeted slip differential and fix that wheel spinnin problem
     
  25. Re:

    to rx7 king go blow a cow supras are the fastest even the na ( naturally aspirated ) supra can #$%# u up
