plus, there's a big difference between chirping the tires and actually breaking them loose.
You left out the import part of my statement... "until the turbo kicks in"
It's no dumpin the clutch or anything, with it in gear, break the tires loose. I know Supra's are powerhouses, but I didn't think they'd have the torque to do that without boost. If yours can... rock on
My rotary will NEVER be able to do that. Once I upgrade the turbo, then I'll be able to with any good amount of boost.

I could spin tires in my old 88 geo spectrum. It was only a 1.4l sohc, 8 valve, 2 barrel carb, 5 speed.

FWD's have the weight transfer advantage... you (FWD cars) don't count
A RWD anything that can do that is pretty cool.
