How to read "next request" if read fast? Will the t and r will be put together, so it's sounds like: nex tre quest, and the tre here is the same as in string?


Personally, with my American accent, my pronunciation would be nex re quest. This doesn't really have anything to do with the speed I'm speaking at since I habitually just (mis-)pronounce "next" as nex normally. I will say I'm less likely to use proper pronunciation if I'm speaking quickly.

Even though the "t" and the "r" are closely followed in your text, the t and tr are very different (the tr requires a lot more mouth movement). I'm not likely to accidentally mix those two sounds up, even while speaking rapidly.
