    Wink Herb's Supra JCR X

    I’ve been around on this forum for about six years... Now that I’ve finally finished the build I want to show you what I’ve created over the years...
    (SCROLL ALL THE WAY DOWN FOR PICTURES)

    Introducing the Supra JCR X aka Japanese Club Racer eXperimental!

    No expenses have been spared over almost 6 years of building this little track tool.
    It started its life in November 1993 as a JDM Toyota Supra hardtop NA 5-speed.
    The car was used in Japan for its entire life until I imported it to my home country Austria.
    After growing up in the 80ties in the backseat of a 911 Super Carrera and having raced the Tom's Castrol Supra in the early Gran Turismo games during the 90ties it was time for my take on my perfect car.
    Being a car guy since my birth, having enjoyed all my Dad's NA flat sixes out of Stuttgart during my early childhood, and fallen in love with the JZA80 Supra somewhere in the 90ties I wanted this Supra according to my own specs.
    To finish the introduction off and leave you with the pics I want to state that this car was never intended to be a concrete tearing, Ferrari humiliating horsepower monster in a straight line.
    This Supra is far more my take on: "What if Toyota made something like a 993 Carrera RS or in modern terms a Cayman GT4 out of the JZA80 chassis?"

    So enjoy the pictures of my build and spare those comments „just slap a turbo on it“ out of this thread please as this is never going to happen on this clubsport car!

    Liked on FB also. I didnt see a power figure. Did i miss it or is it a secret? This is absolutely one of the best supras ive seen in ages. I love every part of it. The details are amazing. I dread to think of how much went into it. You must be very proud.

    Very cool - I usually hate stripes on anything other than a Viper but they are really well done.

    Love it.

    @ Logie: Thanks a lot for the kind words and for the positive feedback! Yes you're right, it did cost a small fortune to build and some people will start to shake their head but still as stated in the text, this car is my take on the Supra and I have full respect for people with other builds like big power builds etc.

    As for the power number it produced 310hp on a good day, and it also produced 295hp on a bad day. It all comes down to temperature, dyno etc. But still I'm really very satisfied with the performance. It kinda reminds me of my Dad's old 911 performancewise, and that's not a bad thing I'd say.

    Concerning the rims you're absolutely right. I'm very pleased being supported by Dotz Tuning Wheels during my build: (Sorry not the best English I'd say )

    But still my personal wheel is and always was the SA-15R acquired from Garage Whifbitz.

    @ all: Thanks a lot for the kind words and for the positive feedback as well!!!!
