If your pondering the internet bored this evening you should sit down grab some food and enjoy this classic snippet of early Japanese street racing. Megalopolis Expressway Trial or Shuto Kousoku is a series of films about illegal street racing on the Shuto Expressway in Japan released between 1988 and 1996.

The films were made through one of the most popular eras of street racing in Japan, a time where Mid Night Club became one of the most respected street racing car clubs in Japan. This films was banned in Japan when it was released due to its illegal street racing content and pro Illegal racing story and are believed to have heavily influenced things like Initial D and Wangan Midnight and across the other side of the world games like Midnight Club, Need for speed and the one we all know oh so well… The Fast and the Furious. These films are a million times better then any fast and the furious as its all about the racing and not about Toretto and his DVD players. So sit back and enjoy some cheesy 80’s Japanese acting and a really bad story and watch Rokuoo in his R30 trying to become a Japanese racing legend!
