Orange Man Bad Supra Posts New World Record

June 3rd, 2020

One of the hottest rivalries in drag racing has become the world record “roller-coaster” ride in the stick-shift class. The Grannas Racing Toyota Supra, the Grub Worm Chevrolet Camaro and the Minion Ford Mustang have been duking it out for months to see who can achieve that ever elusive 6-second quarter-mile. Tonight, the wait is over!

Grannas Racing, in their exemplary Orange Man Bad Supra, posted a 6.9-second pass @ 194.77 mph. This pass was good enough to claim the world record for a stick shift vehicle in the quarter-mile. This beast of a car has been 208 mph in the quarter, but a technical glitch caused an inadvertent ignition shutdown during the world record pass. No doubt, this crew has a great deal of potential remaining. It’s also safe to assume that the other two contenders for this class are not just drinking beer in their respective garages. This will continue to be a competitive endeavor for years to come. Who’s next?

The Orange Man Bad Supra uses a GR Ultimate independent rear suspension (IRS) and subframe, as well as a GR Ultimate anti-roll bar.

Under the hood you will find a Toyota 2JZ motor with a Grannas GR2500 Engine Package (Bullet billet engine block, Headgames cylinder head and GSC camshafts). A Precision ProMod 102-millimeter turbocharger provides forced air induction and a MoTec M150 ECU (tuned by Chris Delgado) delivers fuel and fire. A Grannas Racing GR1000F transmission kit delivers a T56 gearbox with a faceplate and cryogenically treated (REM polished) gears. The rear end is a Driveshaft Shop 9-inch driven by a carbon fiber driveshaft.

Obviously a top notch gear banger.
