Baddest Pickups on the Planet: HPT Shootout 2015

July 2nd, 2015




Can you imagine turning out a 6.5-second quarter mile at 229 mph in a farm truck? What about busting 100 mph in the eighth mile with your camper shell door opening and slamming all the way? Well, that is just what this rowdy bunch of speed junkies live for. They are gathered here, at the Royal Purple Raceway in Houston, Texas, to prove that they have the baddest pickup trucks on the planet. It is Ford against Chevrolet, old against new, and full-size against compact, as these skilled race teams put it all n the line and let it all Read More






Street Racing: Corvette Chaos

July 1st, 2015




Who brings their car to a street race on a trailer? Someone who has come from one state away to take your cookies – that’s who. This video brings you a couple of highly modified late model (a 2001 and a 2009 model) Corvettes as they square off on the streets in an epic battle of supercharger versus nitrous. The “out-of-towner” sports a 2009 Corvette Z06 with a built 408-cubic-inch LSX engine, a YSI Vortech supercharger set at 18psi, and an EFI 128 tuner. It is running E98 fuel and riding on Mickey Thompson E/T rubber wrapped around 15-inch Weld Read More






Street Racing: Supercharged Mustang vs. SRT Viper T/A

June 30th, 2015




For as long as there have been muscle cars, Ford and Dodge have been battling on the street. Smaller, lighter, small block powered Mustangs going head to head against larger, more powerful Dodges with massive big block HEMI engines, are what made street racing what it is today. This video shows a 2015 Ford Mustang GT with a blown 5.0-liter V8. The supercharger is a 2.3-liter VMP Gen2. Fuel is delivered via a Lund Racing Tuner using Injector Dynamics ID1000 fuel injectors, a stock fuel pump, and a booster. American Racing Headers and exhaust removes spent gases and a McLeod racing Read More






200+ MPH at 2015 Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack

June 30th, 2015




Shiny Lamborghinis, Nissan GT-Rs, Porsche 918s, Corvettes, Camaros, and other exotic street cars provided a fresh new wrinkle at the 2015 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC). This video portrays bits from this past weekends second running of the PPIHC Airstrip Attack, sponsored by the Revvolution Modified Lifestyle and Shift-S3ctor, as these awesome street machines blast down dual half-mile airstrips in a unmitigated contest of speed and driving prowess. Twin turbo was the obvious theme of the event so, of course, the Lamborghini “fleet” from Underground Racing was in attendance. The GT-R contingent was also “stretching their legs” in the Read More

Twin Turbo Viper – King of the Streets?

June 25th, 2015




Congratulations to Andy N. and the gang at D3 Performance Engineering for a win in the Rear-Wheel Drive Class at the 2015 Texas Invitational Automotive Airfield Exhibition. Andy also campaigned his twin turbocharged Viper successfully in the King of the Streets Class, defeating a couple of turbocharged Underground Lamborghinis and making it to the finals before falling to the AMS Performance Nissan GT-R. Andy’s Dodge Viper is powered by a 540-cubic-inch Gentry Performance engine with twin 76-millimeter turbochargers slamming air down its gullet.

2000HP GT-R vs. 2000HP Lamborghini

June 24th, 2015




Maybe you have heard of a little performance outfitter from Oberlin, Ohio, called Switzer Performance. Here is a video that depicts their flagship Goliath GT-R in head to head drag racing (and roll racing) against some pretty stout competition. Porsche, Nissan, Chevrolet, and Lamborghini all roll out to challenge Goliath. The GoPro mounted on the right front fender of the GT-R catches all the up-close action (does that hood make anyone else as nervous as it does me?) The Switzer Goliath package includes an engine and transmission rebuild, driveline and suspension upgrades, twin turbochargers, specially made manifolds and intercoolers, and Read More






750HP Mustang Cobras Battle on the Street

June 23rd, 2015




This clip from the Mexico Racing League (MRL) brings you two supercharged Ford Mustang Cobras in head to head roll racing action. If you put any stock in what street racers tell you about their cars, then this battle of the “blue oval” pony cars seems too close to call. At any rate, it makes for a really close contest. Watch for yourself; you don’t want to miss it! These cars sound incredible. Let’s start with the blue car. It is equipped with a stock engine, running 80-pound fuel injectors and a 2.9-liter Whipple Crusher twin-screw supercharger. Power is estimated Read More






Street Racing: 1951 Chevy Business Coupe

June 22nd, 2015




You have to deal with all kinds of business in this life. There is good business, bad business, dirty business, serious business – there is even monkey business – but this New Mexico based street racer is all about a different kind of business. This portly looking old car is inspired by the BEATER BOMB, but it looks one heckuva’ lot better. With the appearance of a classic cruiser and the launch of a pro-stock dragster, this ’51 Chevrolet Business Coupe is a genuine street sleeper. This ride is from an era when bumpers were made of chromed steel and Read More






3,000HP 1963 Dodge Polara

June 19th, 2015




This old Dodge can really get down the track. This thing is beautiful inside and out. Campaigning a beast like this is no simple task; especially on a No-Prep race track. Nevertheless, this driver handled his business and made it look easy. Everyone else in the Unlimited Class (primarily a bunch of blown Chevrolet drivers) seemed to have major issues getting out of the box straight at the Great Lakes Dragway in Union Grove, Wisconsin but this Polara, known as “Bad Judgment”, ran like a bullet. This bodacious black beauty is equipped with a 526-cubic-inch Hemi engine and a massive Read More
