Street Race In DownTown St. Petersberg

I'm just off I-75 heading through downtown St. Petersberg when I come up next to 4 cars. [ Twin Turbo 300zx, A Supra, Rx-7, My Stang, & my crazy as **** *** dad in his Trans Am)

We hit a light and of course the lineup for this three lane road was my dads trans am (which I was behind) the supra to his left (the rx-7 was behind him) and to the left of the supra was the 300zx twin turbo. Light turns green my dads Trans Am rips 2-3 cars lenghts infront of the 300zx and supra (Just at the takeoff then he was just toying with them he told me) while I'm still in first behind him back further then the supra and 300zx and the rx-7 is hanging near my rear end by the end of first. I shift into 2nd and my dads trans am is just taking off down the street and Im watching the supra skip into his 2nd and 3rd just trying to stay near him, the 300zx pulls past the supra but my dad is still far out infront of both just ****ing with them. This rx-7 is about 2 car lenghts behind when we all start to hit traffic. My dad hits a nice pocket and the supra halls *** behind him and I manage to stay close enough to hit a couple pockets with them as the 300zx backs off completly. The rx-7 misses the pocket and is a couple cars back now as we come to around 80mph in a 35 going through some crazy traffic and turns left and right over bridges, etc. The supra almost lost it trying to drift through a turn to keep up with my dads trans am and I squeeze around him nearly missing. I know your probably saying there is no way I could keep up with these two but realize we were downtown in traffic and we all were going around 80 - 90mph dropping to about 60mph on sharp turns then going back up to 80mph. The supra calls it quits after the near miss and me and my dad keep crusing at 70mph until we hit the bay. We start hitting heavy traffic and my dad gets stuck behind somone turning and I fly by. Now we are back in traffic just ****ing around in and out of lanes till we hit our destination.... This had to have been the most fun I've ever had in my car except for my couple visits to the tracks. 8)

Sorry it was long but I broke it down fast, there was a couple more races before the light from rolls at 40 - 50mph but my dad just whooped the **** out of the supra and the rest of us so there is no point going on about that...

I've street raced my dad... but it wasn't really a race... since he didnt stomp on it in his 02 GT vert... Needless to say... he was barely above an idle speed, while I'm up at 4000RPM

Be careful out there... you got nuts in Supras, 300ZX's, Trans AM's and little V6 mustangs street racing at 90+ in a 35

I believe he has around 340hp, torqe I dont know, but he has factory headers which he found out about so its quicker then your average Trans Am. Ya it does suck having a slower car then him, but hey he makes a ****load more money then I do so thats what I gotta deal with for now.

this story sounds like bs...340 rwhp.... a supra will kill that..off the line it wont, but it will close up the gap by mid second gear easy...supra > 340 hp TA..unless they were all non turbo (supra 300zx)

a stock supra only has 320hp and i *think* less torque. A transam will beat a stock one hands down.

no way if they go from a roll and were playing catch ip through traffic where the supra shines...on the highway the supra woulda ate him..unless his dad has a firehawk but the ws6 and lower which as 325 hp im pretty sure wont, cuz this race has been done before by friends and ive asked friends on supraforums.com they all told me same thing.

I donno dude, I was almost right behind them and basically saw everything. My dads Trans Am ate that supra alive, so dont try to feed me this garbage telling me its bull**** when I ****ing saw the supra and 300zx get ripped. Im positive the 300zx was a twin turbo and the supra must have been turbo'd otherwise they would not have even stuck close enough to the Trans Am at all. This guy raced from a roll, and from a stop both cars got took off the line at least 1-2 car lengths. They were stick cause I saw them drop into every gear and the supras 2nd wasnt **** compared to the Trans Am...
