860HP Honda Civic – Tech Line and Drags

January 10th, 2018

Greetings drag racing fans and welcome to a a night of  “run whacha brung” drag racing action at the Irwindale Event Center (⅛-mile) in sunny California. Tonight we are joined by the guys from HighEnd Autosports and their front-wheel drive Honda Civic race car. This turbocharged sport sedan is equipped with everything it takes to line up and put down a solid pass on the street or strip. After getting the Honda on the trailer and heading out to Irwindale, the guys find themselves a bit behind the eight-ball with a ton of competitors ahead of them in the tech Read More

AWD Civic – 7-Second Beast  

December 22nd, 2017

It’s difficult to make my mouth say that a snot green Honda hatchback is a beast but this car certainly has beastly characteristics. It comes out of the hole like a bullet and flies through the trap in the 7-second range (consistently). When you consider that it blows through the quarter-mile at approximately 190 -195 mph, it is even more impressive and hard to believe that it is a four-banger. The engine is a K20 (2.0-liter) Honda unit with a big turbocharger. The owner explains that it has dyno tested at 1,100whp but he has the boost turned up even Read More

Turbo Acura V8 Killer

December 11th, 2017

You can imagine our surprise. After all, it isn’t everyday that we pull up to an event like Street Car Takeover Phoenix (Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park) and find a front-wheel drive Acura Integra going on about quenching some V8 dreams. Even more to our amazement was the tiny four-cylinder engine underneath the hood. Before the day was done in Wild Horse Pass, we would discover that the fella’ with the biggest gun doesn’t always have the fastest bullet. The car was setup to campaign in the Front-Wheel Drive Class but a lack of FWD competitors resulted in a move Read More

Twin Turbo HEMI 300 Street Hits

December 4th, 2017

Welcome aboard Mopar Airways Flight 160 (mph that is). Place your luggage in the overhead storage bins and buckle your safety belts. You are about to be treated to some low altitude passes in a Chrysler 300C luxury liner. The Texas (Mexico) streets are hot tonight and this Chrysler sedan is a big reason why. It is trolling for some roll racing action and finding it in droves. This Chrysler 300C has been treated to an engine upgrade. The new mill is a 404 cubic-inch stroker HEMI. It has a pair of bottom-mounted Precision 6766 turbochargers that are being water Read More

7-Second FWD Turbo Civic

November 16th, 2017

It is hard enough to get a quarter-mile drag car into the sevens when you have an unlimited budget and all the cubic inches that will fit under the hood. Getting (consistently) into the sevens with a limited budget and using a four-cylinder, front-wheel drive platform is simply outstanding. Kudos to Ramey Racing (and friends), who transformed this seriously unimpressive sport coupe into the track taming hurricane that you see in this video. On this day, they earned the honor of preparing the first vehicle in the Sports Front-Wheel Drive Class to post a 7-second elapsed time in the quarter-mile Read More

World’s Fastest Honda S2000

November 1st, 2017

Coming to you direct from Speedworld and the World Sport Compact Challenge in Orlando, Florida; this video documents a (quarter-mile) world record pass (6.78-seconds @ 203 mph) by an outstanding Honda S2000. As you might expect, there is no shortage of extremely quick and tiny cars on hand at this event. Cars that are capable of posting six, seven, and eight-second passes are running up and down the track all day and into the night. It’s a toss up as to whether this Honda is better at doing wheel stands or blasting through the 1320 at a breakneck pace. The Read More

Street Racing Spectacular – Import vs. Domestic

September 4th, 2017

There is literally something for every street racing enthusiast in this video! Of course, there are tons of fast cars in every size and shape – imports and domestics, turbo and nitrous, standard and automatic. There are dig and roll races (sometimes 3-wide). There’s even a wreck and a fight (sort of). The backdrop is beautiful (New) Mexico and its flat landscape. It’s perfect for street racing. There is a bodacious DSM (1990s Mitsubishi Eclipse or Eagle Talon) that is capable of 1,000hp – from a stock 2.0-liter engine with over 100K miles. You know that there were tons of Read More

TX2K17 – Taking it to the Streets

August 29th, 2017

How do you kill some down-time when you are attending the TX2K17 event in Houston? Grab several hundred of your closest friends in fast cars (on bikes, too) and scamper across the border (into Mexico) for some street (roll) racing. Take a look! First up is a supercharged Honda S2000 in a roll race with a Nissan GT-R. The GT-R jumped out on him and never looked back. The S2000 lived to race another day. This time it’s against a Camaro with unknown modifications. The Honda wins this one – handily. Next, we have a pair of Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Read More

World Record K-Series Civic

July 27th, 2017

Nobody, down in my neck of the woods, is expecting to see a hatchback Honda running eights, much less dipping into the low eights at nearly 180 mph. Steve Oliveira and the crew at CLM Motorsports, Inc. have built themselves a monster of an all-wheel drive K-Series Civic Hatchback that ran 8-second E.T.s all weekend before setting a new World Record quarter-mile elapsed time and top-speed. The high-water mark was a best E.T. of 8.1-seconds @ 179 mph. That’s impressive – regardless of your cylinder count. Aside from the awesome chrome illusion paint job, this Civic is rocking a massive Read More

1000HP NSX Takes-On GT-Rs and Bikes

July 19th, 2017

If you enjoy roll racing on the highway (of Mexico), then you will love this video. It features a highly modified Acura NSX rolling up against several other radically enhanced import coupes as well as a couple of a high performance motorcycles. The aluminum bodied, mid-engine NSX was manufactured by Honda. The first generation (1990 – 2005) models were sold with an all-aluminum VTEC 3.0-liter V6 engine. It had the capacity to produce only 252hp. In order for our feature car to be competitive in the street racing world, the V6 was extracted and a (more durable) 2.0-liter K20 four-cylinder Read More
