Cootamundra 2JZ King Supra

May 16th, 2019

Drag racing from Down Under – it’s the Motive Runway Thrash – and we’ve got the King of the six-cylinder Supras in this event. This right-hand drive Toyota Supra is a real beauty. Looking for a new challenge? How about racing in the Rear-Wheel Drive Class, in a car that is capable of producing more than 1,100hp; on an abandoned airstrip? After more than 500-competitors have cut the light at this venue, only approximately ten have posted an elapsed time of less than 10-seconds. This is a tough track. The car is a right-hand drive Toyota Supra. It is powered Read More

Both cars cut the light precisely and the Camaro totes the Read More

735HP 2JZ Lexus SE430 – Street Hits and Dyno

May 6th, 2019

So, one beautiful summer evening you are out trolling the streets (of Mexico) when you come across a Lexus coupe. The driver is giving you the stink eye. You know the one – like he wants to take your cookies. You tell yourself that he wants none, but realize that his little Lexus started life with a V8. The two of you roll onto the freeway for some racing. He pulls alongside and gives you the signal. Before you know it, he’s blown by and all you can see are taillights. Thing is, the car looked stock and you never Read More

1400HP Honda S2000 – Ride Along Street Hits

April 11th, 2019

Howdy racing fans and welcome back to TX2K19. Allow me to introduce Evan and what may be the most intimidating roadster at this event. Of course, the car is a Honda S2000. Where is gets really unique is under the hood. Evan trashed the Honda mill for a Toyota 2JZ platform with a giant turbo (50+ psi). The little import is loaded with one-off parts designed to make it go very fast in a straight line. It also has a sequentially shifted dog box transmission. Built by Turn In Concepts. As capable as the S2000 is on the track; it’s Read More

World Record Setting Toyota Supra –TX2K19

April 3rd, 2019

I hope you will understand that Joel Grannas is an exceptional race car driver. One need to look no further than the 9-second testing and tuning rounds to see that. Every quarter-mile pass in this rambunctious, manually shifted Toyota Supra seems more like a series of four or five passes. Each one shooting – crazy and uncontrollable – in a slightly different direction. That’s what racing is like when you have built a manually shifted car equipped with a 1,650hp 2JZ (inline 6-cylinder) engine with a massive turbocharger (50 psi of boost). Under the hood you’ll find a Bullet Race Engineering Read More

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
