Still the Quickest Street Supra/Import!!

December 7th, 2009 Comments off

Three months ago the owners of Titan Motorsports, Nero and Bottle Deliwala, had been challenged to make a showing at the NSCRA event at Palm Beach International Raceway. Twenty Eight days ago the challenge was accepted, and the final verdict was handed down: The Supra was to not only make a showing in the December 6th NSCRA final race of the year, but to make a statement. At that point we proceeded to call John Brown with the NSCRA, who was more than happy to hear the decision. The NSCRA committed to help in any way they could to get us there, and to make our NSCRA experience as seamless as possible. We can’t thank John or his organization enough for all the support they showed us, and for letting Titan Motorsports add another page to the import drag racing history books.

With the owners committed, the race organization in tune, and our tech being flown in, things were looking good, and we were on track to achieving our goal. Our goal was simple; beat our previous 7.71 record. But that was no easy task. We knew it couldn’t be done alone, and we knew we wouldn’t have to. Our sponsors really step up on this one, as always, and came through with the support and product we needed to achieve our goal. Before we go any further, we would like to give a special thanks to those companies:

Mickey Thompson Tires, XS Power batteries, Nitrous Express, Precision Turbo, Strange Engineering Ringers Gloves, ARP, Adell Wiggins, ATI Super Damper, Borla Headers, Ferrea, Fidanza, Fluidyne, Innovate Motorsports, JE Pistons, Motec, NGK, PST, and RC Engineering,

We arrived to the NSCRA event untested in our new setup, and our first run of the day had already matched our best 1/8th mile run to date. On the second run the car achieved an incredible benchmark in drag racing; a 4 second 1/8th mile run, but unfortunately the car shut off at the 1000ft mark. So we hoped the third run would be the charm, and it was. We ran an incredible 7.66@188.44mph, on a nitrous bottle that ran empty 1000ft into the run. Challenge accepted, statement made! Once again Titan Motorsports would like to thank the NSCRA for letting us be a part of their event, our sponsors, the crew, and the hundreds of fan’s that welcomed us back into the import scene with open arms. Stay tuned for more on the NSCRA event.
