A great sequel to Street Rod that improves upon its predecessor in every respect, Street Rod 2 features more and faster cars, more challenging courses, and new customization options that were added based on fans' feedback to the first game.

(Read my review of Street Rod for an overview of the gameplay and objective – both of which remain the same here). In addition to changing engines and transmissions, you can now add a fuel injector, muffler mods, and change the car's gear ratio. The "grudge night" is a new racing mode that pits you against slower cars who are given significant handicaps. In response to many fans' criticism that Street Rod races were far too easy and too short, California Dreams went to the other extreme by adding the Road Race and Aqueduct Race – two very challenging courses that are probably impossible for most gamers to finish. If you like Street Rod, you will love Street Rod 2. If you think the races in Street Rod are too difficult, you will likely be very frustrated with this game. Otherwise, Street Rod 2 is simply a must-have for every car lover.

Note: the links below are for a Street Rod revival project that never got far into alpha even, due to various problems. Included for historical reference.
