1100HP 1930 Ford Model A Sedan Rail Job – Drag Racing

Greetings drag racing fans. Allow me to introduce you to Butch. He is the proud owner (and fabricator) of this one-of-a-kind 1930 Ford Model A Sedan Rail Job. Let’s take a closer look at what makes this contraption click. Out front is a massive blown 542 cubic-inch Brodix big block. Shifting duties are left to a 4-speed Lenco transmission with air-assist shifting. The big blower is a GMC 871 making 25-pounds of boost. This pre-war brute has dyno’d a 942hp number to the rear wheels. The front suspension and rear differential are new so, we get to tag along as Read More

The Street Racing Channel (SRC) crew turned out to Brown County Dragway (Indiana) for WAR IN THE WOODS VI.

Oh, and legendary starter Limpy is on the light. This will be No Prep Drag Racing on the eighth-mile. Classes include Read More

Import vs. Domestic Street Duels – Audi, BMW, Toyota, Ford & Chevy

It’s about to get real crazy on the interstate tonight. Modified import and domestic owners have gathered to talk smack, admire one another’s machines and – above all – race on the interstate (of Mexico). Roll racing is on the agenda. The evening kicks off with a pair of E50 tuned cars going at it. The first is a Toyota MKV Supra with a performance exhaust downpipe. The other is a BMW 240i with a full accoutrement of bolt-ons. We have multiple hits here. The Supra gains the advantage in most of them. Next up is a tussle between an Read More

Turbo Chevy Silverado vs. Twin Turbo Genesis G70 – This vs. That

In this installment, we have an unlikely pairing between a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado and a 2021 Genesis G70 sedan. These two vehicles will be competing in a series of drag races on a closed course in an undisclosed location. Now, let’s check out the rides. The pickup is a rear-wheel drive Silverado with a Thompson Racing engine (370 cubic-inch) and a massive turbo. It’s running a 4-speed automatic transmission (4L80E) and it weighs 4,300-pounds. Whoa! That’s a heavy Cowboy Cadillac. Despite the extra girth, this truck has turned a 10-second quarter-mile (maybe faster). It is estimated to have a maximum Read More

Big Block Mini Cooper – 7-Second Screamer

This thing is out of bounds! It’s a 2011 Mini Cooper Clubman with a stock steel body (power windows intact). What’s not stock is the 7-second (quarter-mile) elapsed times that this blue streak cranks out with great regularity. Just look at those big, fat rear tires – this thing is for real! Under the hood is a 565 cubic-inch Dart Racing engine with nitrous. It’s all-aluminum (block and heads) and it can produce nearly 1,000hp. The remainder of the powertrain consists of a 2-speed Powerglide transmission and a (narrowed) Ford 9-inch rear end. The car weighs 2,750-pounds (with the driver) Read More

Ported Blower GT500 vs. Twin Turbo F-150 – Street Digs

What we have here is a bit of Shelby-on-Shelby action. What’s the best part? It’s on the streets (of Mexico). Shall we have a look at the vehicles? The 2014 Ford Mustang is a GT500, which is loaded with a supercharged 5.8-liter V8 motor. In stock condition, the Mustang GT500 can generate 662hp and 631 lb.-ft. of torque. This little creampuff has been upgraded with a Kong ported blower, a set of long tube exhaust headers and a Coastal tune. She is sleek and fast. The Ford F-150 Super Snake has been modified as well. The supercharger has been deleted Read More

Ultimate Street Sleeper – 10-Second Honda Civic Sedan

Nobody – and I mean nobody – is expecting to get gapped by a 1991 Honda Civic Sedan. Then, it happens. Those front wheels hook up and smoke begins to billow from under the fenders. This inconspicuous looking four-door tilts up to the starting line and bang! It launches through the light and blasts through the 1320 like a blue streak. You just got beat by a granny wagon. Keeping with the Honda theme, this guy opted to go with a B18 four-cylinder motor and a big turbo. The bottom end is upgraded with better connecting rods and pistons. The Read More

630HP Restomod 1965 Corvette Widebody

Our boy Shawn (from Autotopia) has done it again. He located this crazy 1965 Chevy Corvette with a widened body (6-inches) sitting on a nearly stock chassis modified to accept a C4 front suspension. In the rear, we have an independent torque-arm design with a Dana 44 Trac Loc differential. The Forgeline wheels are 18-inch (12.5-inch rear, 11.5-inch front) This is a car that is equally suited for the dragstrip or the autocross course. The engine is a Lingenfelter built LS7 7.0-liter all-aluminum dry sump V8 capable of producing 630hp. By the way, it’s naturally aspirated. The 3-inch exhaust system Read More
