Chevy Corvette ZR1 vs. McLaren 720S – Street Hits

Greetings fellow street and drag racing enthusiasts and participants. Tonight, we have a special treat. In an ultra-modern adaptation of ‘Paul Revere’s the British are Coming’, we have a bevy of American-made high-performance vehicles, all of which have been modified for the purpose of racing, awaiting the arrival of a certain British supercar. Let’s drop-in on the action as some of the Americans hone their skills on one another. In the initial pass (roll racing), a pair of identically modified (save for E85 fuel) Corvette ZR1s have squared-off. *Don’t miss the Chevrolet SS with the twin turbochargers poking through the Read More

First C7 Corvette to a 7-Second Quarter-Mile

Hello, drag racing fans and welcome to the Houston Raceway. This clip brings us the quickest (quarter-mile) C7 Corvette and consequently, Gen V LT powered vehicle on the planet! If quarter-mile drag racing has a Mecca, it’s the 7-second elapsed time. Everyone dreams of climbing into their own custom-crafted drag racing machine and posting a 7-second pass at nearly 200 MPH. The crew at LMR (Late Model Racecraft) is more than prepared to take the plunge (into the sevens) and etch their names into the annals of history. At the heart of this World Record Holder is an LME (Late Read More

Cowmaro – 1100HP Full Build Rundown

Want to know how to squeeze over 1,000HP out of an LS Camaro? Here’s the gameplan: At the heart of this all-American monster is an RPM built 416 cubic-inch (Texas Speed 4-inch stroke crankshaft) LS3 block with Callie’s CompStar connecting rods and Wiseco pistons. The compression ratio is estimated to be 11:1. That’s ideal when you’re running E85 fuel. The camshaft is an RPM general purpose unit that is relatively versatile. The moderate cam allows the car to run a supercharger, turbos, or naturally aspirated without a lot of extra headaches. Up top, we have a set of LSA ported Read More

YeTTi Ford F-150 – 6-Second @ 210 MPH

Greetings drag racing fans and welcome to the Maryland International Dragway for the Haltech Import vs. Domestic World Cup Finals. Our feature car for this clip is not even a car! It’s a pickup – America’s favorite pickup, as a matter of fact. This is no ordinary F-150 though. This is the YeTTi and this beast of a truck is capable of consistent 6-second passes in the 210 mph range. The truck is getting faster and faster. There’s just no telling what kinds of records will be broken by the YeTTi before this season is over. Toiling away underneath the Read More

8-Second Ford Taurus – Hot Rod Drag Week

Never seen a rear-wheel drive Taurus? How about an 8-second Taurus? I have never seen either one. Then again, I’ve never been to Estonia on the shores of Northern Europe. Andre Arnover, the owner of this 1972 Ford Taunus (not Taurus – thanks James) hails from this place whose native population is often mistaken for being Finnish or Polish. As though the little Ford wasn’t strange-looking enough, the rear fenders have been widened to accept larger (275) racing slicks. The motor is all Ford (no LS swap for these crazy cats). It’s a 427-Windsor (small block) being force fed air Read More

3-Wide Street Hits

What do you figure all those high-powered racing machines do when the track closes and it’s time to head home? They take it to the streets (of Mexico) for some door-handle to door-handle roll racing. This is one such time and there’s an impressive field of competitors on hand, including: A Dodge Challenger (1,000HP) with a 434 cubic-inch engine and a 106-millimeter turbo. A Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 (860HP) with a Whipple 2.3-liter supercharger (upgrade) on 12 psi of boost and a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 (750HP) with an upper pulley upgrade, a high-performance camshaft, and high-performance exhaust. The Camaro and the Read More
