I put a bunch of time into this video, hopefully I can stir some nostalgia with Street Fighter 2 and bring some laughs! At our last race at Portland International Raceway the Blue Bayou 240SX got into some tussles with the SMRT K20-swapped Honda Civic and I had a blast! The first time it was wet, and I was really struggling, then the next time we found each other it was all dry out.

Nice video.  How did you keep getting banana peels under the Honda's rear tires?  :-)

Banana peels... Sounds like good inspiration for a future Mario kart video. :-)

Thanks! We have a build video linked at the end where we put in the engine. The VQ30 has been a workhorse for us, it has about 150 track hours on it and still has excellent compression (220-230psi). Unfortunately at this point most cars in our class have 50-150 more horsepower than us, so we will be moving to the VQ35 during the off season. In a drag race this Honda Civic pulls on us, but not nearly as much as the Corvette, M3s, and Mustangs.
