Hi people,

Just introducing myself really. I'm lusting after a TT manual and have been looking at various build threads for a while.
Are there any Supra owners round here? If so, speak up and introduce yourselves. :d

I'm live in Hemel Hempstead, work in Hatfield. I did see a black Supra on the way to Watford once. Hello and thanks for your introductions. A little more about what I'm looking for and my thoughts.
My life long car dream thus far has always been to have a lotus elise with a supercharged honda engine. Nowt wrong with that, apart from the cost lol. The dampers of choice for this car are nitrons.
I found out about the mk4 supra, as you can get nitrons for that too. Then I thought, ok, more power, more creature comforts, but still with the handling/ride comfort I'm looking for. Obvious it a front engined rear drive car without 4 wheel drive - all good plus points. I can even get rltc to keep it on the black stuff. and the extra weight penalty will give me more down force in the wet lol.

I thought the Elise came with the Toyota Celica 1.8 engine and the Exige was a supercharged varient. Didn't know there were companies swapping in Honda Vtec engines and supercharging them. http://www.hondaelise.com/ Well well well :)

thats the s2, the s1 was originally a rover k-series. the s1 is a "proper" elise :D

super charged vtec can get 400 bhp, and in a 750 kg car, its fast

There's a space in that lineup by the Impreza for you in your Supra ;) You'll need a weapon if the yellow Elise has 400bhp.
