The kind of street racing which used to scare the absolute crap out of parents' groups.
When the import tuning craze got under way during the nineties, it was spearheaded by the promise of forced induction. The relative ease and comparably cheap cost of turbocharged performance seemed to finally offer a replacement for displacement.
