    Ok so we have seen lots of videos of how fast the new Supra is from A to B. I decided to take the new rig out to Pittsburgh International Raceway for some seat time and baseline numbers. This is my home track with 2.78 miles and 19 turns.

    My best lap bone stock was a 2:02. Now for reference my modified RCF turned a 2.01 same weekend on Cup 2’s and My tracked prepared ISF on R888R’s turned a 2:00. Not to shabby. I got a point by from a Cayman S and ran several laps on pace with a Mustang 350 driven by an instructor.

    The car ran great brakes are tremendous. The was turning 20 hot laps in 80 degree heat and temps didnt budge. I’ll through on some proper track tires and get after it again soon.

    Nice! have you followed Jackie Ding's track day vlogs? He's running at gridlife with his new supra! He's got a wrap and is running good times with just wheels tires and pads.

    Awesome, great to see more people getting these on the twisty track. I would love to see what I could do in a stock Supra at my local track compared to my TT5 track BMW e36 or modified BRZ I had! Still resisting the urge to buy another car, hah!

    You should totally get one and start a video series on it... I always loved watching your videos on Youtube.

    ^^^ Did you use paddles or Sport Auto? Also did you use Traction Mode or leave stability fully on?
