So, I had to post to social media to get a free shirt and this is where I posted. The new Supra did look pretty cool, and it sounds like it'd make a decent $55-$65k daily/track car. If you don't want a Corvette and the M2 isn't your bag and you want a new car, the Supra is a fine choice. The rep was a bit frustrated though when I told him I was faster in my BRZ, but really that's not a fair comparison since I run 200tw tires and they were on MPSS (I'm at less than half the hp of the Supra, half the price, and a full set of tires and tools fit in the back of my BRZ).

And, it's not built by BMW, just from BMW parts in Austria. But the Toyota guys totally got to set up the suspension and tuning (the 2021 was re-tuned for an extra 60hp, and the 2020 suffered from understeer but Toyota got to decide that, not BMW!). I'd recommend waiting 3 years for them to come off lease, so you can pick them up for $20-$25k and have a hell of a car for that price.

I had a chance to play with Forrest of TTW and his new Supra earlier this year just after he'd picked it up. It was still totally OE and even still had paper tags, but it gave me a run for my money for a whole DE session. I imagine it's quite a bit quicker now that they've had a chance to play with it and it's no longer close to OE.

I think it ran 2:05's at ECR in NASA TT form (R7) last weekend, it's getting pretty quick,  Not sure what other mods are on it besides wheels/tires.

I’ve lost track of his build, but I know he’s got at least MCS 2WNRs, caster/camber plates, and all adjustable control arms . . . so pretty much all new suspension making room for bigger meats and treating them right.

Other than a front sway, I think you nailed it. Seems to be a healthy fit into TT4 -- I'm curious what the addition of aero is going to do. Still waiting on my 21' to arrive...

I think its going to be the car to have in TT4, its wild with Forrest driving it and killing it so far. Makes great power. I cant wait to see what it will do with Aero.
