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

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

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

Drag Race – McLaren 540C vs Honda NSX vs Nissan GT-R

May 27th, 2017

If you trust the statistics, all the data points to the McLaren getting spanked handily in this short drag race. Both the Japanese supercars have more power and more torque than the British variant. Adding insult to injury – the McLaren is the only car in this elite field that is not all-wheel drive so, it also has less traction. Fortunately for us, the producers of this video decided to go ahead and run the race anyway. Sometimes things don’t work out as expected. The carbon-fiber tubbed McLaren is the lightest of the three cars and is equipped with a Read More

Making a Four-Wheeled Honda Fast

April 28th, 2017

The owner of the Honda S2000 featured in this video has a desire to help his fellow import owners. He wants to show us all how to make our import street and strip cars get down the track a lot faster. He accomplishes his mission within the first 30-seconds of the clip but you will want to stay for the hot drag racing action. This post is coming at you from beautiful, sunny Orlando, Florida (east coast home of Mickey Mouse) and the Street Car Takeover. As soon as the hood on the bright red Honda is opened, anyone can Read More

Raw Roll Racing – Import vs. Domestic

March 28th, 2017

Fans of roll racing on the streets will love this video like a fat man loves apple pie (ala mode). It has it all – procharged, turbocharged, and even naturally aspirated (N/A) cars. This night of roll racing action is taking place on the streets of San Antonio, Mexico (of course). Only a few minutes into this one and I could tell that there were some pretty heavy-hitters on hand. It also seemed like most of the cars were evenly matched (according to power) for a competitive night of racing. Let’s take a look! First up is a Corvette Z06 Read More

8-Second Honda Civic

October 21st, 2016

Help me out here – this don’t sound like any Honda Civic that I ever heard. No wonder, this thing is running some big cubic inches and a pair of turbos. Lil’ Lutz was turning heads and making tongues wag, during Drag Week 2016, as he produced consistent 8-second passes (at around 160 mph) in this seriously modified Honda Civic. How did he do that? Well, you basically pull off the hood emblem and drive a race car in under it. Seriously, this is only a shell of an ’89 Honda Civic – it ain’t even front wheel drive anymore Read More

Honda S2000 Street Hammer

October 17th, 2016

By: Evan Margolis Here’s a sight that’s just about as rare as hen’s teeth (of course you know, hens don’t have any teeth). It is a Honda S2000 sports coupe with a souped up Toyota engine under the bonnet. This hybrid import is equipped to handle the street machines of Texas (a little town down in Mexico), despite having a manual transmission. As stated, the S2000 is running a Toyota power train, including a 2JZ in-line 6-cylinder (built bottom end) engine with a giant turbocharger. The combo is good for about 1,100hp. Things get interesting when two similarly equipped Supra Read More

Indy Nights – Street Racing Superheroes

August 29th, 2016

First of all, this is some serious street racing action. Second off, allow me to ask this question: If you come out of pocket for a Lamborghini, then get your lunch eaten by a Honda Civic, do you immediately head home and cry into your pillow? I ain’t trying to be disrespectful – just asking. If you find yourself in a similar predicament, you might want to go underground (Underground Racing, that is). So, here’s the extremely diverse lineup. There’s are a pair of Honda Civics with huge turbochargers and they are taking no prisoners. Then there is a 1JZ Read More
