Indy Nights – Street Racing Superheroes

August 29th, 2016




First of all, this is some serious street racing action. Second off, allow me to ask this question: If you come out of pocket for a Lamborghini, then get your lunch eaten by a Honda Civic, do you immediately head home and cry into your pillow? I ain’t trying to be disrespectful – just asking. If you find yourself in a similar predicament, you might want to go underground (Underground Racing, that is). So, here’s the extremely diverse lineup. There’s are a pair of Honda Civics with huge turbochargers and they are taking no prisoners. Then there is a 1JZ Read More






Nitrous vs. Turbo – Viper vs. Mustang

August 26th, 2016




This black beauty of a Fox Body Mustang is making 1,100whp with a 363 cubic-inch aluminum Dart Racing engine, high performance cylinder heads, and a massive 83-millimeter turbocharger. It’s putting those ponies to the ground with a built automatic racing transmission. After spending a day at the track, and posting an 8.64-second ET at 159.19 mph, the pony car takes to the streets looking for some action. If you are looking for action, chances are that you will find some. This time it comes in the form of a burnt orange Viper SRT. The Dodge Viper SRT is producing 972whp. Read More






World Record Quarter Mile Pass – Audi R8

August 26th, 2016




This is the sound of Underground! The whole world knows that Underground Racing (UR) is on the forefront of high performance multiple turbocharger enhancements for the street. This video shows us that UR is not just breaking barriers with their Lamborghini creations; they are capable of setting world records across their entire vehicle range – up to and including Audi’s top tier coupe. It also treats us to a world record breaking 1/4-mile pass for an Audi R8. This canary yellow rocket blasts through the 1320 in 9.025-seconds at 160 mph flat. This 2017 Audi R8+ DCT rolls off the Read More






$5000 Grudge Match – Kye Kelly vs. Street Beast

August 24th, 2016




It’s Outlaw Armageddon, a gathering of the biggest and baddest names in No Prep drag racing, and it seems that some inflammatory statements have been made. Kye Kelly, in particular, has taken exception to comments made by the chief of the Street Beast team – a man they call Doc. Doc is long on guts and short on patience. Now, there will be repercussions. In typical No Prep fashion, these will come in the form of a big money grudge race. Somebody said $2,500 and another said $5,000 – the first barked back, “$5,000 it is.” Now it’s on like Read More






Outlaw Armageddon – BOOST12 Mustang Dominates Small Tire Class

August 24th, 2016




The BOOST12 Cobra Mustang (prepared by Dean’s Perfromance) is arguably one of the baddest street cars on planet earth, with a big block Chevrolet engine and a pair of turbochargers. Nevertheless, it runs in the small tire class of No Prep Drag Racing. That can make it pretty challenging to even get down the track without an incident, much less win a fat wad of cash ($20K today) by making it through the finals. It’s Outlaw Armageddon and, after a successful night of testing, round one at Thunder Valley Raceway Park begins with the BOOSTED12 Mustang going against a capable Read More






Twin Turbo S10 Posts 8-Second Quarter-Mile

August 22nd, 2016




The thing that makes drag racing interesting is seeing a vehicle, like this 1987 Chevrolet S10 pickup that was never meant to go very fast, blast down the 1320 (feet) in less than 9-seconds at over 150 mph – time and time again! In my humble opinion, there are few things more satisfying than knowing that you have modified a vehicle so that it will do so much more than that for which it was designed. This compact pickup not only gets the job done on the track but it also proved that it can handle the rigors of Rocky Read More






Birkacup Street Elimination Tournament

August 19th, 2016




The Birkacup street eliminator has got to be the greatest single invention of the Swedish people. How awesome would it be to have a national street racing tournament, where the baddest cars in the land come to compete in heads-up single elimination dig racing? Of course, in the U.S., it would need to take place south of the border. Get this: These guys block off a section of the interstate and get down! Road rage must be a lot different in the city of Stockholm than it is in the States. I don’t know how things work in your town Read More






Big Three Battle on the Street

August 18th, 2016




Here’s a battle between Chevrolet, Dodge, and Ford (respectfully in alphabetical order), that takes place on the streets of an abandoned Mexican town. All three cars have manual transmissions and all three are bone stock. The racing is of the roll variety and the GoPro equipment is plentiful. That makes for some great looks at these amazing cars. The bright yellow coupe is the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. This is the Chevy flagship and it comes with a 6.2-liter supercharged and direct fuel injected V8 engine (dry sump oiling system) mated to a 7-speed Active Rev Matching manual transmission. The Read More






0-60 MPH in 2.65 with the Refreshed Tesla Model S P90D Ludicrous

August 18th, 2016




We test the refreshed Tesla Model S P90D with Ludicrous mode running 0-60 MPH in just 2.65 seconds.  With a refreshed look that includes a new front bumper, rear diffuser along with full LED headlights, the refreshed Model S with Ludicrous might be packing some extra power as well. Even with the regular 19″ wheels and skinny 245/45/19 all season tires, the Tesla has no problem ripping consecutive 2.6x 0-60 MPH times using it’s monstrous amounts of fine tuned torque delivery to all 4 wheels.   What current production car can keep up with the Tesla to 60MPH for under $1 million?

Heirloom Nova Posts Consistent 8-Second Passes

August 17th, 2016




You have to love hand-me-downs like this pretty 1970 Chevrolet Nova. This work in progress has been owned by members of the same family for more than two decades. In that time, it has gone from being a weekend street warrior (with a bench seat and a column shifter) to the turbocharged work of art that you see in this video. When this racer’s brother owned the Nova, it ran in the 12s. After it underwent a serious upgrade to a big block engine, it dropped down into the 10s. That was followed up by a small block with nitrous. Read More
