TX2K19 Import Showcase – Roll Hits and Digs

March 18th, 2019

With a chill in the air and gray skies overhead, Day 2 of TX2K15 is underway with entries from Underground Racing, ETS (including Gidi in his Alpha G), AMS, and other heavy hitters on-hand. With roll racing and digs on the slate, looks like it’s going to be a long one. Walking a fine line between cooler temperatures (along with the denser air that they bring) and frozen precipitation, these competitors are torn between the possibility of setting a new World Record and uncontrollably veering into the wall. Cooler, denser air – fun. Slippery, wet drag strip – not fun. Read More

900WHP BMW 325i – Track Roll Racing Beast

March 15th, 2019

Greetings racing fans! Please allow me to introduce Francis Von Louie and his awesome BMW 325i. This is a car purpose-built to run 60-65 mph rolls on the track. To say that Frank dominated the competition during the SlipStream Roll Racing season of 2018 would be an understatement. This clip grabs some of the best moments of the summer and brings them to you, here. Take a gander. The 2.8-liter M52 engine in Frank’s sedan has been rebuilt with high-performance connecting rods and pistons. The turbocharger has been upgraded to a Borg Warner S369 (at 32 psi) and he is Read More

Turbo Four-Bangers Ravage the Streets

February 12th, 2019

Greetings street racing fans. Tonight, we are hitting the streets (of Mexico) with a pair of turbocharged Hondas for a bit of nighttime fun. These guys are out there – racing anyone who will tow the line – and winning more than their fair share. We are in for some roll racing and some dig racing in this one. Let’s take a look! Right outta the gate, these two Honda Civic competitors must have a go. The car with the smaller four-banger (B16 vs. K24) seems superior, after multiple hits. The B16 Civic tangles with a stock GTO in the Read More

Toyota MR2 Takes on the Streets

February 3rd, 2019

Looking like a mini Mad Max creation, this Toyota MR2 is a mid-engine powered nightmare for the competition. A murdered-out paint scheme, ground raking stance, and custom wide-body kit give this ride a most menacing appearance. Under the hood, a Honda (K20) engine block, with Carillo connecting rods and CP pistons, has been sleeved and outfitted with a built cylinder head and a set of Stage 2 cams. A Precision 6266 turbocharger (and everything that it entails) is the lone power-adder. A PPG Dog Box (manual) transmission handles the shifting duties and a Pro Jay dual-injector (FIC injectors) intake manifold Read More

8-Second Honda Swapped Toyota Tacoma

November 27th, 2018

By now it has been established that the Haltech World Cup Finals (Import vs. Domestic) draws some of the baddest and most unique rides in racing. The focus-vehicle vehicle for this clip is nothing if not capable and unique. Running in the eights, this street truck has to be considered among the upper echelon at any event. The Toyota chassis and Honda/domestic drivetrain certainly stand out from the crowd. The vehicle is a 2003 Toyota Tacoma. It is equipped with a Honda K24 engine. Nearly stock, the Honda bottom end is gently massaged with Manley connecting rods and JE Pistons. Read More

Indy Airstrip Attack – Crazy Wing Vette Goes 235 MPH

November 3rd, 2018

Greetings racing fans and speed enthusiasts! Welcome to Marion, Indiana and the Shift S3ctor Indy Airstrip Attack Half-Mile. On hand are such giants as English Racing, Underground Racing, Dallas Performance, and Top Speed Motorsports; as well as some smaller teams and individuals. Today’s contest is all about top speed and these guys can really make it. Just when you thought you’d seen everything, you get out of the car to see a Honda Insight (hybrid) stroll through the half-mile with a top speed of 163 mph. The tiny car now has a K20 gasoline engine and a small turbocharger (instead Read More

1000HP LS Swapped RX8 – Street Rolls

August 16th, 2018

This is my kind of street racer. I love a small car with a big old engine and a power-adder (or two). Well, they certainly don’t get much smaller than the Mazda RX8. In factory trim, it weighs in at a scant 2,800-pounds; is 175-inches long, 70-inches wide, and 60-inches tall. Now, outfitted with a 6.0-liter GM V8 engine and a TH400 GM transmission, the little Mazda tips the scales a bit heavier but makes it up in horse power and acceleration. Oh, best not forget – a pair of turbochargers, too. Let’s get down to Old Mexico and get Read More

Cash and Carry Street Racing – $5200 Prize

August 3rd, 2018

Take a look at this top shelf street racing (drags) video. This one reminds me of home, even though I know it is filmed down in Mexico. A large group of the baddest and boldest street racers in the continental U.S. has gathered for this auspicious occasion to burn up fuel, apply some rubber to the pavement, and see who can claim bragging rights as king of Cash Days. Everyone is here. So, without further ado – run your car, not your mouth – as the man says. With everyone’s money turned in and darkness falling on this narrow strip Read More

8-Flat AWD Honda Civic – No Prep

July 3rd, 2018

Greetings drag racing fans and welcome to the Sunshine State for TRC Street Kings. The star of this clip is a 1,100hp all-wheel drive Honda Civic hatch. If you’ve never seen this capable import before then get ready to start rooting for the FrustrateEG crew on their quest for a 7-second quarter-mile. When DR opted to go with a stock 2.0-liter Honda block, he wanted to make it bulletproof. So, he went with sleeved cylinders at 10:1 compression. He added a set of Drag Cartel 3.2 camshafts and a massive Precision 7685 turbocharger. A triple-disk Action clutch aids in shifting Read More
