2019 Corvette ZR1 – Manual vs. Auto

April 19th, 2018

The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 has had tongues flapping and chins wagging since well before its physical release, several weeks ago. The excitement is well deserved. The 2019 ZR1 is the most capable Corvette mass-produced to date. It can produce an astounding 755hp and 715 lb.-ft. of torque (in stock trim) and it is equipped with some of the most advanced aerodynamic features ever seen on a production automobile. This article will compare several videos in an attempt to determine whether the ZR1 equipped with the 8-speed automatic transmission is nearly a full-second quicker (in the quarter-mile) than the same Read More

1200HP Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4

April 18th, 2018

Here is another one of those cars that I wish I had paid a little more attention to when they were plentiful. Now these things are as hard to find as chicken’s teeth and when you happen across one; it is super nice. That’s certainly the case with this owner-built machine. It looks like a million bucks and sounds even better. This 1997 model all-wheel drive sports coupe has been rebuilt from the ground up and modified with a single Precision (7675) turbocharger. Since there aren’t a ton of companies offering aftermarket performance parts for this particular car (let alone Read More

April 17th, 2018

Boom! Go along as our cameraman climbs on board one of the baddest street cars to ever roll down the entrance ramp and rule the interstate (of Mexico). This slippery red all-wheel drive Nissan GT-R tackles street bullies with more cubic inches and manages to hold its own, Buckle up! Our feature car is well equipped with a 4.2-liter V6 stroker motor with a Boost Logic BL1300 turbocharger kit (twin 3586 turbos). It is a monster in a race but well behaved in regular driving. It has a full interior with air conditioning and all the luxury accoutrement. The exterior Read More

Heavy Chevy – 1972 Yenko Nova

April 13th, 2018

Competing in the Limited Drag Radial (3,33o-pound minimum) Class, Justin Martin and friends are campaigning one of the most stunning muscle cars to ever roll through the bleach box.        The ride is a 1972 Yenko Nova with a billet big block Chevrolet engine. The engine is built by Pete Harrell of Harrell Engine & Dyno (HED) in Mooresville, North Carolina. A pair of Garrett 88-millimeter turbochargers cram copious amounts of dense air into the massive engine and a Holley fuel injection system keeps the giddy-up juice flowing. A Mark Micke (M&M) transmission handles the shifting duties. Today, you will Read More

Superbrawl of Street Racing – GT-R vs. Roush Panda

April 13th, 2018

This is the granddaddy of all roll racing videos. If you enjoy taking to the interstate (Mexico) with a whole herd of elite level street racers; you’ll love this video. There are so many street beasts in this clip that they had to hit the streets in groups. After a brief driver’s meeting the first pack went out.   The initial wave included a black Gen VI Shelby GT500 Mustang. It is running a professionally built engine with high performance cylinder heads and a camshaft upgrade, a Kenne Belle 3.2-liter supercharger, and E85 fuel. The combo is good for 800+hp. Read More

April 11th, 2018

With no electronic timing and surface conditions that mimic those of public streets, No-Prep Drag Racing has quickly become the hottest ticket in town. This video takes us out to Bounty Hunters III No-Prep Grudge Nationals where some of the baddest street cars in the nation are gathered to see who can claim bragging rights and a big stack of cash. One of the competitors in the top tier Big Tire Class is Steve Wiley and his supercharged Chevrolet S10 pickup. Despite having a steel roof and quarter panels, this is a full-on race truck. It features a tubular chassis Read More

Import vs. Domestic – Supra and Charger Hellcat   

April 11th, 2018

The tale that is told on this video is one of only two cars. It is told with multiple passes and numerous camera angles. It unfolds on the streets of Old Mexico. The two cars featured in this clip are as different as daylight and dark. One is a heavy, four-door sedan and the other is a short-wheelbase coupe. The one rolls off the factory floor with a massive, supercharged V8 engine and the other is outfitted with an inline 6-cylinder as original equipment. Even the hue of these two attention-grabbing street beasts stands in stark contrast of one another. Read More

Another 6-Second GT-R – Tony Palo T1

April 10th, 2018

Tony Palo and the T1 Race Development Team have settled in among the elite in Nissan GT-R record-breakers. These guys campaign one of the more unique looking cars on the GT-R circuit. The first thing that catches my eye is the widebody treatment. This car looks like something out of a science fiction flick. The subtle camo pattern paint is out of this world and rounds out an aesthetic that makes this car one of the most eye-catching of the season (even at TX2K18). After 3-years of running this car through the vicious cycle of race, break, repair, and repeat; Read More

JDM Supercar Shootout – Nissan vs. Toyota

April 5th, 2018

In the spirit of transparency, there are actually a pair of JDM Nissans on this clip. One is setup more for circuit racing than street racing but still has some bite. Both are similarly outstanding to look at and both are right-hand drive but there are differences. The 1996 (R34) Nissan Skyline GT-R has been equipped with a Precision 6266 turbocharger, oversize fuel injectors, Haltech stand-alone controller, and it’s running E85 fuel. It is capable of producing approximately 750whp. It will have the opportunity to take on some “old school” V8 (supercharged) horsepower in the form of a Cadillac CTS-V Read More

April 5th, 2018

Greetings drag racing fans and welcome to the Cecil County Dragway for an epic battle between two variants of the big, bad ZR1 ‘Vette. We are all looking forward to seeing what these bad bowties can do but the staging lanes are packed with awesome cars of virtually every variety. There is a bad looking vintage Mopar, a Porsche, numerous Mustangs (of all types), and even a McLaren. All that is in addition to the feature race between these two Chevys.   The star of the show is the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. As far as we can tell, this Read More
