    James and Thomas take the new 2020 Toyota Supra and pit it against the Ford Mustang GT with Performance Pack 1 in a full track test: Drag race, drifting, and lap times! Can the Mustang overcome its weight disadvantage to overpower the Supra? Watch to find out!

    I am more surprised that the Civic Type R was a second faster than the Supra. I knew the Civic was a great car, but I was not expecting that.

    Still glad to see that he liked being in the Supra, car and driver connection is more important to me than lap times.

    Not bad considering Supra still has pilot super sports.

    This test doesn't make sense to me. Both the Mustang and the Supra should have been way faster. It's odd, because I know in other tests the Supra handled amazingly and ran really good times and the Mustang is also very capable as well.

    It's even weirder that they were both slower than the M2 which is usually the slowest of the three.

    I don't think these two are professional drivers by any means

    The one guy Thomas is a real good driver and an instructor, and he does all the timed laps. I would expect he could extract the best from each car as long as he does enough laps to dial in properly. I don't think they make any effort to correct for weather, tire variability, or have an understanding of uncertainty or repeatability, so I wouldn't put too much stock into their long list of times for the various cars. I would have liked to see the M2C and Civic-R tested on the same day and know what condition all the tires were in to make a conclusive comparison of the four cars. Don't know if there would still be 2 seconds difference or not. Also don't know much about their track, but if there are enough high speed legs then it would favor the M2C over the Supra since the S55 has more guts on the top end.

    Test is flawed. Here is my bone stock Supra doing multiple laps with a Shelby 350 driven by an instructor. He said afterward he couldn’t shake that new Supra. Lol. My buddy was behind him in the lunch line.
