Built for Texas.

Sunday 10 March, 2013 | By Ken

In a day and age when stance dominates the car scene, it’s possible to actually believe the misconception that the appeal of power and speed are a thing of the past. Sure, we all love eye candy, and thanks to the power and presence of the internet, social media and our on-the-go technology, it’s easy to fall-in-love with beautiful photos of vehicles slammed, stanced, poked and so-forth. There is something though, to be said about cars that look good, but more importantly are built to be driven. Take for instance, this particular 1995 Toyota Supra. Owned and built by Mike of M&S Performance, a shop known for their monster Supra builds and 2JZ swapped-projects, this Supra was built to race in Texas for TX2K13 in Class 4, the 76mm class.

Although we can’t divulge all the information on this Supra now, we can tell you that in the three weeks it took to build, M&S Performance created an 8-second capable monster, ready to tear apart the track.. A combination of a built 3.0 liter, ported head, GSC cams, factory 5-speed converted to a Th400 transmission and a 150 dry shot nos resulted in 1100 whp. Weld wheels take on roller duties with 17 inch up front and 15 inch beadlocks on the rear. Mike and his Supra is now presently in Texas, looking to make serious noise. Stay tuned and follow the events at TX2K13!

Classic lines of the MkIV Supra never get old. Like wine, they just get finer with age.

Attention to detail is key. In this case, M&S addressed all the necessary details needed to be extremely competitive in one of the premier racing events of the year.

Putting power to the ground is just as important as power itself. Some may even argue that it holds more importance that the amount of horsepower and torque being put out.

“Remove Before Flight” in the literal sense.

Yes Ladies and Gentlemen, the super-clean factory interior finish is an awesome touch for a car that is 8-second capable, pushing 1100 wheel-horsepower and ready to make serious noise at TX2K13.
