Letter Of The Month
So I just got finished reading the latest issue of your fine magazine, and was simply blown away by the cover story. I mean, a V-12 Supra?! I didn't even know Toyota had the balls to make an engine that amazing. You gotta understand, the only Toyotas I know of are that small economic piece of crap called Corolla or that puto car driven by putos who care about the earth called Prius.

So imagine how wet I got when I saw this gem on the cover. Let's just say I swiped my mom's box of tampons to stop myself from leaving a trail like a puto snail.

Plus, what's up your models lately? They're getting hotter than hell. Let's just say my supply of ID Glide personal lubricant is running low 'cuz I've been slipping the sausage into my hairy hands more than I care to in a month. I mean, they're way better than whatever puta monkey they put on Import Tuner's cover. Is that model a girl or a man?

Food for thought:
It would take three of your puto 4AGs combined to equal the cylinders in the Top Secret Supra. Come to think of it, Tres Putos Supra has a nice Taco Bell-like ring to it.

This month's lucky winner swagged himself a set of Evolve wheels from Kyowa Designs (www.kyowadesigns.com).

Industry Mail
How exactly can you ban racecars from Time Attack in an Unlimited class when most racecars compete in a class with rules that limit the amount of modifications, weight, tires, fuel, etc? I hate to come out and sound like I am defending the GMG Porsche, but honestly, their racecar is a more mild car than many of the other cars that compete at Time Attacks. It just seems like a few people might be afraid of them.

Would you allow the carbon fiber-bodied HKS TRB-02 to compete in Time Attack? That car is a much more radical car than those at any of the Time Attacks. Even the C-West carbon-bodied S2000 would not be legal for most race classes.

The GMG car isn't fast just because it's set up as a racecar, but also because of the driver. If you ban racecars, then perhaps you should also ban professional racecar drivers.

Seriously though, Eric challenging them to a one-lap battle for $1,000 was a joke. In the world of $1,500 entry fees, $30,000 engine rebuilds, $800 weekend fuel costs and $2,000 weekend tire costs, $1,000 might as well be a dollar. I'm sure that $10,000 might have perked James's interest a little.

The Porsche is naturally aspirated, on Toyo RA1 DOT tires and has a H-pattern gearbox. The XS R32 was on a 305 R compound tire, with 600-800 hp, Hollinger sequential transmission and a professional driver and it was still not as fast as the Porsche.

The Time Attacks have always been a fun, mellow event to go to. Not too high pressure-just a good time. Let Unlimited Class stand as it stands; an unlimited class. Wouldn't it be more of an accomplishment for someone's tuner car to be faster than a racecar?

It's safe to say no Super Street staffer will ever sit on the FIA board of rules and regulations. That, and we're sore losers.

April Fool
I would like to know why you would make fun of someone's car like you did mine in the April issue of Readers' Rides. If you didn't like it, you should not have used the pic of it. Hell, you got the state and city wrong for one, then you put it down like it was a piece of trash. Well, I'm sorry I'm not rich and have $100,000 to put into my car. I will be looking into the court system because that was degrading to me and everything I have done to my car. I know plenty of lawyers that would back me so I hope you will fix this. I have been reading your magazine for years so how can you do this to me? It had always been a dream of mine to be featured in your magazine. Not any other, but yours. I worked hard on my '99 Ford Escort ZX2 and then you clowned me like that. I hope you have some regrets over this and can find some way of correcting it. Well, I hope to hear from you about this soon and if not, I guess I'll take it to the next level.

Cue sad music: wa-wa-wa.

I get out soon and I'll be around at every car event you guys throw. I'll be the guy with the hot wire and the RX-7 drifting my way into your pages. Keep up the great work and hold a job for me a Super Street.

Anti-Hater
I'm only 14 and don't know too much about cars, nor do I own one, but I know you haters out there need to shut up. You criticize every car magazine you can find. All you're doing is wasting the space where the cars should go. Just because you can't get laid, doesn't mean that you have to take it out on car magazines. If you wrote hate mail to crap like Parade I'd understand, but you have no reason to yell at Super Street. One hater complained about Nads writing about his kid. I'd rather read about the spawn of Nads' manboobs than hear about your '00 Honda Civic with a busted taillight (that one you broke backing into a shopping cart at CVS while buying tampons to stick up your ass) and a muffler the size of Texas.

You also criticize the amount of money feature cars cost and how Super Street needs to find more automotive innovation. Go check out April '07's 1000hp Top Secret Supra. You know that if you ever saw that you'd be drooling worse than that Chihuahua you're scared of on a 98-degree day. So just shut up because nobody likes you and you have no friends. You can all just go suck my junk (or Nads' boobs, if you prefer). Stop reading Super Street and get a life.

Jail Mail
I just received my March '07 issue and you had about three girls in there that need to be tanned and fed, but I guess they'll have to do for now. I like the new look, but damn, please put some more women in your pages. And try to give them full-page exposure.

All month long I look out for my new issue to arrive so I can read the pseudo-comical banter of mindless rag lackeys. I have sent in letters before this one and you have failed to publish them in your publication.

You should have a regular Jail Mail column-check your subscriber list and see how many of us are on it. I treat every issue as if it were my release papers. My fellow convicts and I are always talking about the mods and installs in your JDM Bible.

One day, this loser came over with a eurotuner and asked if we wanted to check out the new Volkswagen GTI, he's now in protective custody.

I get out soon and I'll be around at every car event you guys throw. I'll be the guy with the hot wire and the RX-7 drifting my way into your pages. Keep up the great work and hold a job for me a Super Street.

P.S. If you are going to send me anything, send it to my wife and daughter:
P.O. Box [None of Your Business]

Confused
I have been a reader since about '98 and I must say that your mag has stayed consistently at (or near) the top of the game. After almost ten years of reading, I have found an inconsistency that bothers and confuses me.

As a fabricator and road racer, I don't understand your disqualification of the so-called "purpose-built racecars" from your 2006 Time Attack results.Was I the only one watching the television series where two of your most highly touted "tuner cars" were purpose-built for your event? I'm sorry, but the XS Engineering (hint: engineering) R32 GT-R is about the furthest from a tuner car that I can think of. Sure it's a Skyline, and sure it's got plenty of HKS goodies, but when Cosworth Engineering (there's that pesky word again) builds your motor, you've stepped slightly outside of the standard realm of "tuning." Maybe that's just my opinion, but one-off parts, modified off-the-shelf parts and custom outsourced engines all sound much more like the insides of a purpose-built racecar than a tuner car.

On to the Cobalt SS. Television viewers got to see the team of engineers (that damn word again!) from GM totally re-engineer the Cobalt SS into a car that was "purpose-built" to compete in your event-a "race", if I might add ("Any racecar... should not be competing on the same Time Attack field as traditional tuner cars." "Outlawed" sidebar, Mar '07). Solid engine mounts custom-machined and re-engineered by a team from the world's largest auto manufacturer? Sounds a lot like a purpose-built racecar to me.

Could you please explain why these cars are tuners and not racecars?

No.

Hello. I was wondering who to contact or where I can send a portfolio of my car to be considered as a feature in Import Tuner. Please point me in the right direction. Thank you.

Bi-Curious
I'm a long time reader and love the work you do in your magazine. The reason I'm writing is because I'm getting kind of tired of the animosity between import and domestic car guys. All you ever hear or see in magazines and on the Internet forums is bashing between the two genres. I own an '05 XB, '96 Accord coupe and a '64 Falcon coupe.

I personally can appreciate the beauty of both types. No one ever gives someone crap for liking different flavors of ice cream, sports or women. But as soon as you step over the boundary between domestic and import you're a Benedict Arnold.

Wasn't this country built on the wonderful thing we call diversity? Can we not appreciate technology as well as displacement? I believe a marriage between the two would produce some of the greatest machinery we've seen to date. I enjoy a '51 Mercury hot rod as much as a '93 Supra done to the hilt. I believe both are beautiful pieces of artwork in their own right. In the famous words of Rodney King, "Can't we all just get along?"
