Big Easy Street Digs – 500hp to 900hp Cars and Trucks

Time to get down south (of the border) for some hardcore street racing. The backdrop is a deserted stretch of blacktop in an industrial park. An eighth-mile has been marked off and some serious street racers (Daily Driver Extreme Class) have shown up to collect their share of cash in the Big Easy. Hold on to your hats. This one could go off the rails in a heartbeat. After a brief period of testing, the grudge races are set to begin. In the first contest of the evening, we have an Audi S4 sedan (500+ hp) against a supercharged Gen Read More

Dueling Datsuns – LS Swapped Imports Big Money Street Race

Tonight, we are coming at you from the Compton Speedway in historic Mexico. We have a pair of LS (Chevy) swapped imports ready to tear up the asphalt for a cash pot of $5,200. Both these cars hail from the Datsun lineage. The Z-Car was created a Datsun and the 240Sx was manufactured by Nissan (the modern name for Datsun). Let’s see what happens when these two serious street machines throw down in this notorious street racing venue. Sleek and lean, the Z-Car has long been a target of street racers looking to dump a big domestic engine in an Read More

GT-R World Cup 2021 – The Next Big Thing?

Greetings drag racing fans and auto enthusiasts of every ilk. Welcome to GT-R World Cup 2021 from Bradenton, Florida. Allow me to introduce Maurice Stanley and his Nardo wrapped Nissan GT-R. Maurice is the dude from the Steve Miller song which refers to him as ‘the gangster of love”. Not really. He is however a space cowboy because Maurice is taking up plenty of space. Maurice is also turning heads with his T1 Race Development built Nissan GT-R. Although the subtle Nissan is a fresh build, the car has managed to consistently turn quarter-mile times in the 6-second range and Read More

Rolling Coal – World’s Fastest Diesel Drag Truck

Congratulations are in order for the Firepunk Diesel Drag Truck team. The Firepunk crew managed to get their Cummins diesel-powered 2000 Chevrolet S10 Pro Stock truck into the history books by posting an eighth-mile pass of 3.988-seconds @ 182.67 mph. While that might not be good enough to win the event, it is good enough to set a World Record for a diesel-powered dragster. Competing in the Radial Versus the World Class at 2021 Lights Out 12 (South Georgia Motorsports Park), the 6.7-liter Cummins diesel-powered S10 accomplished a feat that was unheard of a mere decade ago.

Night Drags – C7 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 vs Acura NSX

Import versus domestic is the new standard grudge match when it comes to virtually every form of racing.

The C7 (2014-2019) Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is a beast of a street car. Equipped with an LT4 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine, the C7 Z06 can make 650hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque.

Blown Chevy Silverado Gaptizes Nissan GT-R – Half-Mile Airstrip Attack

From Bandimere Speedway (Rocky Mountain Race Week) to Kansas for the Kansas Airstrip Attack, this stick shift Chevrolet Pickup is kicking butt and taking names. After a major rear end catastrophe, Cory and his team had to locate parts and repair their blown Chevy in order to irk out the final pass of Rocky Mountain Race Week Day One. Although he posted an 11.86 @ 122.85 mph, Cory was unbelievably excited to complete a Day One pass after all his struggles. Anyone who has ever been in a similar situation couldn’t help but share in this guy’s enthusiasm. It was Read More

Old School vs Nuevo Speed – TT Corvette and TT LS Rail Job

Two cars could not be more different. The Corvette Z06 is spit and polish modern with leather interior, shiny paint and climate control. On the other hand – the rail job is a 1927 Dodge Split-Window Coupe with a bare-bones cockpit, a bit of patina on the exterior – and tons of attitude. Similarities include LS engines and twin turbochargers. Let’s see what happens when the rubber meets the road. The 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is capable of making 1,500hp. Today, it is detuned to 1200hp. The transmission is a 2-speed RPM Powerglide and the car tips the scale at Read More
