Evo X World Record Quarter-Mile

April 22nd, 2017




Hello drag racing fans and speed aficionados of every variety. Join me in congratulating Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) and English Racing as they (once again) shatter the world record 1/4-mile with a pass of 8.48-seconds @ 164.1 mph. The crew had the little sedan running in the 8.5-second range the entire event (TX2K17) and finally hit the right spot for a blow out pass in the latter stages. It seemed like Lucas English was pulling his hair out at the laptop trying to find the perfect tune. Lucas is no stranger to world records and he came through in the clutch. Read More






Speed Guide – Building a TT 2017 Mustang GT

April 21st, 2017




This clip does a great job of walking you through the making of a 675hp, twin turbocharged street beast. What makes it even better is that the car’s cute owner leads the way. Stephanie, who makes a wonderful tour guide, was not happy with her 400hp Mustang GT. Unlike most car owners, who just belly-ache and drive on, Steph decided to make some powerful changes. This video takes you through some of these changes – step-by-step. There is even a dyno comparison at the end. The 2017 Mustang GT was subjected to a set of airbags to achieve just the right Read More






World Record Eighth-Mile – 1969 Dodge Dart

April 19th, 2017




It has been said that you just can’t keep a good man down. Lyle Barnett is a living example of that. After being badly burned while campaigning his Corvette during Lights Out 6 (2015), Lyle was back in the saddle for Lights Out 8. What took place there will be forever etched in the annals of drag racing history. Some might ask why Lyle would ever get back into a race car. Those people wouldn’t understand that inside him beats the heart of a drag racer. After a long recovery, Lyle climbed behind the wheel of Jason Digby’s 1969 Dodge Read More






Road Rage – Underground Lambo vs. Hayabusa

April 18th, 2017




Wow! These street bikes move like something from another galaxy! The question is: Are they faster than a highly modified Underground Racing (UR) Lamborghini? Let’s take a look. Even in stock form, a Lamborghini Superleggera is the delight of many car enthusiasts. The mere mention of Underground Racing compounds that delight a million times. The twin turbo kit from UR uses a pair of 67-milimeter Precision turbochargers and a MoTeC controller to increase horsepower from the 600hp range to 1,500hp (1,300whp). These UR Lamborghinis are super fast and in constant contention for all kinds of top speed world records but Read More






Door-to-Door Roll Racing – Chevy vs. Ford

April 18th, 2017




In the classic battle to determine superiority between the bowtie or the blue oval, the action will occasionally spill over into the streets (of Mexico). As you can see, this video painstakingly (multiple GoPro angles, etc.) documents one such occasion. The Chevy part of this contest is the much lauded Corvette. Already one of the most feared street machines (in factory trim), the co-star of this clip has undergone severe modification. It is equipped with a 402 cubic-inch LS3 engine augmented with an ECS supercharger. The owner estimates horsepower in the 850 range. The Mustang GT is a force with Read More






Roll Racing on the Street – McLaren vs. Ferrari

April 15th, 2017




If high profile street racing is what you seek – this is it! How much better could it get than a McLaren 570S and a Ferrari 488GTB, engaged in a contest of speed and acceleration on the street? One thing is for certain; if you spot these two fine examples of automotive engineering on your local interstate, it will be a memorable trip. The McLaren 570S is marketed as an entry level supercar. It is less intense and expensive than other McLaren models. The monocoque, mid-engine coupe is equipped with a 3.8-liter V8 engine capable of producing 562hp and 443 Read More






Stock Engine Viper World Record Half-Mile

April 14th, 2017




Those speed demons at Calvo Motorsports have done it again! These guys continue to push the limitations of top speed as they pertain to factory stock engines. If you are going to build a legacy of speed with stock hardware, what better place to start than the premier (arguably) high-performance coupe produced in the U.S. The Viper comes off the assembly line with a massive 8.0-liter V10 engine that is capable of producing more than 600hp. I am not absolutely sure about the rules for this particular class but I did hear the owner/driver talking about bolt-ons and a turbocharger. Read More






3-Wide Street Dig and Roll from Mexico

April 12th, 2017




This is how they do it south of the border – down (Nuevo) Mexico way. One could call this clip “Street Racing at its Best”. There are cars from all over the globe; Acura, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Dodge, Diamond Star Motors (DSM), Ford, Honda (rear-engine, 500hp?!), Nissan, and Subaru are all well represented here. Rolls The evening begins with a pair of supercharged C6 ‘Vettes locking horns in roll racing action. This turns out to be one of the closest races of the night. Next up, you have a couple of roll passes that feature a herd of the baddest Ford Read More






840HP Dodge Demon – Test Hit

April 12th, 2017




Fiat Chrysler America (FCA) is set to raise the bar even higher in the area of high-performance stock production vehicles. The official announcement of the impending 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has sports car enthusiasts foaming at the mouth in anticipation of its release. The Demon will be the first performance machine ever offered with drag radials and the most powerful mass production vehicle ever made in the U.S. Not to be confused with the 707hp Hellcat, Dodge SRT has totally redesigned the propulsion system in the Demon and added a few new and innovative twists that should be thought Read More






2JZ Powered S10 Pickup Runs Sixes

April 10th, 2017




At Lights Out 8, down in South Georgia, there was certainly no shortage of S10 pickups . S10 pickup carcasses are everywhere, so it’s relatively easy to pick up a pickup and throw in an LS small block or even a big block and put down a pretty decent pass on the street or strip. Well, the owner of the truck featured in this video chose a slightly different path. Maybe there were no LS engines available in his neck of the woods, perhaps he is a V8-hater, or peradventure that he was going for a lightweight theme – I Read More
