I've heard the idea tossed around of an S/C up to a certain point, then cutoff for the spooled up turbo, thereby acheiving both immediate power and high top-end power...

hmm, both these cars have tri-turbo setups, numbers arent too impressive, the VW runs 12's on a quarter mile and the supra has a little over 600hp

I've seen S/C and turbo set-ups on show cars. Don't really believe it's practical. The 8 turbo set-up was on a 57 Chevy, I believe, and the numbers were not impressive. It was built mainly to be different and win trophies. I think you run into flow and heat problems with these things, not to mention the adding of weight and complexity.

who says having a supercharger and a turbocharger isnt practical? it gives a lot better powerband than you would get with just one of them. and it's not any more dangerous if you have it tuned properly. the biggest problem you will have will be plumbing the intercooler pipes for both. it's not going to be easy to do, but it can be done. it has also been done numerous times on different cars.
