After Defeat By FarmTruck, Jared Holt Transforms Turbo Supra

Supra 2There’s an old saying in the racing world — ‘never bring a knife to a gun fight’ — because you’re going to get hurt, and no racer likes to get their ego bruised.

A lot of folks over the last few years have wanted to take a swipe at the crew from Street Outlaws on Discovery Channel and never get the opportunity, but Jared Holt did, and learned the hard way how quick the cars in the 405 actually are. Holt made a pretty gutsy call out online to try and make the 405’s list, but learned that getting a spot in the top ten wasn’t going to be easy.

When Holt called out FarmTruck on Discovery Channel’s hit show, things got heated quickly. As you can see in this video, Holt got gapped pretty bad, but that tossed a big can of gasonline on his competitive fire to make his ride quicker. He sent his car to Real Street Performance and they turned an already-potent 700 horsepower street beast into a legit seven-second street sweeper.

Real Street Performance is known for some top-level builds, including the world’s quickest Honda S2000 that runs deep into the seven-second zone. For this build, Holt wanted his car to stay as true to its street roots as possible, so it maintains things like power windows, a stock block, and runs on pump gas.Supra 3

To accomplish Holt’s goals, Real Street dialed up their RS 1600 package that uses all off-the-shelf type parts, so there’s nothing exotic going on here at all. The only trick part is the Precision Street Fighter 8385 T-4 turbo used on the car, which is a modified turbocharger that makes the car legal for the Street Fighter class at the World Cup Import vs Domestic race in Maryland.

In this video from That Racing Channel, you can see this Supra go from a quick eight-second street car, to running a best of 7.65 at over 182 mph with a 1.22 60-foot. That’s flying for a street car!

Editor’s Note: A previous version of this article misidentified Mr. Holt as “Josh.” We apologize for being dumbasses, and have corrected the mistake.
