    This might be old news to some, but to the others, its thrilling! because im sick of tired of people who tell me that imports are slow.. well now they can eat shit because the Bullish Racing boys just ran a 6.70 which is tied to the fastest pro stock with 2 less slugs and im not sure about the displacement.. but its GREAT

    speaking of sick cars I was at lebaon valley dragway in new york for the night of fire
    I saw a jet powered funny car get beat by a top fuel dragster.
    top fuel ran a 5.44, and the jet powered ran a 6.04 bot ha t around 290mph

    That takes the prize money Summit put up for the first Import to break the 200 MPH barrier in the 1/4 mile, doesn't it?

    I think it was like $50,000. Not sure, though.

    None of the cars out there running 6 seconds are truly either import or domestic anyway... they're all full custom builds.

    The first one to do it was the Pro V8 RWD Turbonetics Celica LAST year. It did it on the final race of the year at Englishtown last year i believe, or it could've been the next to last. The prize was $25,000.

    actually NO, it was the VENOM TUNDRA powered by the V8 TUNDRA BLOCK and LEXUS GS 400 HEADS... but the problem is they hit it on UNOFFICIAL SOIL... the celica driven by the scranton brothers were the first to hit it at AN OFFICIAL EVENT on a SANCTIONED TRACK

    the monetary prize money put up by summitt was much more than 25,000 as i recall it... i could have sworn it was something like 200,000... but of course i could be completely wrong

    and anyone who believe the scranton brothers originall built the turbonetics celica needs to be gagged cause that car was taken away from ROB @ RPS... i remember seeing the car at Robs shop from start to finish... outta nowhere turbonetics takes the car and gives it to the scranton bros. cause they have a better track record

    That is an awesome accomplishment. I'll give them that. But top fuel dragsters have been running mid 4's with small block 350s for years. There's no doubt in my mind a top fuel dragster that's considered an import can hit mid 4s, or even beat it. How fast you wanna go is just a matter of how much dough you want to cough up. Anything can be built to be fast.

    It WAS $25,000, i was there when they handed them the oversized check at Englishtown.

    You are right about the Tundra doing it first unofficially, i had forgotten about it doing it unofficially. But yeah the prize money was $25,000 i was there.

    too bad that 25k only covers 1/10th of the cost of the build up and travel expenses.

    I have also been inside Bullish Racing's facility in Hackensack early this year and last November. They let me take pictures of their 2JZ-GTE, the now dead Street Tire Supra, and their Solaras before they got their new purple paint job. SICK SHIT!

    yeah, I used to talk to steven thompson a lot at pacific performance (he drives a tube chassis new body style civic ex, red and it looks like the front of the car is crunched in a little) but even back 2 years ago when he was using his red EK he wouldn't take it to events that often. He had a shop to run down here in florida and to be honest the one thing you do gain from competing is exposure. These cars just end up costing so much money to build, drive, maintain, replace parts, tune, and travel.
