Home  \  Asian Imports  \  10 second car.

i live in the us, so a sylvia or skyline arnt really in the picture

Shame you can't source a Godzilla. I think some of the guys at MRT or Rexnet are managing 10's these days.

Go buy yourself a Supra. The car will decimate all after 30 thousand dollars, and maybe some over night parts from Jaahhpan.

You're looking at,

-GIANT blow off valve
-A turbonator turbo kit
-Semi-cold air intake
-If you're feeling risky, a 4 psi turbo
-2 to 3 dozen stickers
-PS2 AND Xbox game consoles
-Green, or if you want the real power, red underlights
-6/7 foot tall spoiler
-Flux compacitor

Good luck, my not-so-fellow racer!

There you go. ANY cheap, relatively light RWD car and cheap high power engine.

Iv'e seen first gen RX7s with Chevy engines go 8s for under $10k. The overall winner of this year's grassroots Motorsports Challenge was a 2nd gen RX7 with a Ford 302 that ran 11.3 in teh quarter and cost under $2000 total. Last year there was a '70s Nova sedan that ran 10s for under $2k total (though it was a serious beater). There area lot of cheap RWD cars out there that can take small block V8s and run those times for very little money.

Once you move up the dollar ladder, then anything goes. Air cooled VW Bugs can do it under $10k, as well as Turbo Pintos, Turbo Merkurs, etc.

i have a friend taht has a eclipse gst which is rare to have in canada but he has one and hes got a evo turbo in it and expects 400 horses and if he adds nos to it DAMN ITS GONA BE 10secs!!! :smoke:

Sad but true. And an EVO turbo doesn't usually net 400hp. It'll usually net in the 350 range with decent tuning.
