It seems EKanoo and the team have been at it again, this time taking their Pro Import GT86 over to the US to see what they can run.
Gary White ran it down the Michigan 1/4 mile at – 5.891 @ 388kph (241mph), breaking the US import record. Although not breaking their previous 5.77 @ 399kph (248mph) world record it’s a pretty impressive feat after a few runs.
Congratulations to the EKanoo Racing team! It will be interesting to see where this car and it’s development go from here.
Did we ever doubt that a 2JZ powered vehicle would be the first in the 5 second 1/4 mile club? No we didn’t!
Although this may be old news to some, I held off posting EKanoo Racing Supra’s 5 second 1/4 mile run as these guys were breaking records left right and centre. An amazing effort by the EKanoo team and another great drive job by Gary White.
Best E.T – 5.97 @ 387kph (240mph)
Best trap speed – 6.00 @ 394kph (245mph)
World’s first 5 second import
World’s Fastest Supra
World’s Fastest 2JZ powered vehicle
In addition they also ran a 6.65@356KM/H (221MPH) in the Toyota 86 with the 2JZ combo, making it the world’s fastest 86 down the 1/4 mile.
Also I’m glad Khalid Mohammed’s recovered and walked away uninjured after this nasty crash in the Twin Turbo Lexus ISF.
It’s been a while since I put anything up from E.Kanoo Racing, but they are still at it with the supra. This time in the 10.5 outlaw supra – firstname.lastname@example.orgKM/H. So close to a 5 second supra, an amazing achievement and another great drive job by Gary White.
Another Toyota Supra Informational video from the vaults, a Toyota Sales US video back in the launch year of 1993. Still to this day the Supra does not age, for those that watch the video please take note that the supra was probably closer to 4.9 seconds from 0-60mph for the US version. Thanks to Youtube user roliks.
If you know of any Toyota OEM or museum videos for the 2JZ either on Youtube or elsewhere 2JZGarage would love to see them, comment below or contact us directly.
2JZGarage is looking to keep up with the 2JZGTE powered vehicles of Australia and the world from now on – this is some footage I got back at GAS motorsports back in 2009 – the guys at GAS have now powerered some of their vehciles to low 6 sec runs (6.32 @ 223mph for the gold celica pictured in the video) on the 2JZ- An amazing achievement and more videos news to come!
Few pics and video footage of GAS Motosport Toyota Celica 2jz powered drag cars in their workshop that I took on a supra dyno day. These produce around 2000hp each 🙂
