July 20th, 2019

You don’t tug on Superman’s cape. Don’t spit into the wind. Don’t pull on the mask of the old Lone Ranger and you don’t mess around with Jim! Who’s Jim? I don’t know but he’s driving a Viper. Allow me to welcome you to Colorado Springs for the Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack 2019. Today, a modified Dodge Challenger SRT Demon (1,100hp) will get a reality check. On hand for this half-mile event is Calvo Motorsports. Calvo is the premier shop for high performance Viper modification. These guys have turned up with a bevy of hot Vipers that are raring to Read More

Half-Mile Pikes Peak – 1100HP Twin Turbo Ford GT

July 12th, 2019

Just hanging out at the 2019 Shift S3CTOR Pike’s Peak Airstrip Attack, TRC ran across this low-slung Ford GT owned by the Christmas Family. Campaigned by the sibling team of Alexandria and Coy Christmas, this is one of the most stunning and powerful cars on any track. Alexandria currently holds the prestigious honor of being considered the “Fastest Half-Mile Woman in the World”. Built by Top Speed Motorsports (Alpharetta, GA), the beautiful Canary Yellow Ford GT featured in this video is powered by a virtually stock (block and heads) 5.4-liter engine built by Jon Kaase Race Engines (Winder, GA).

Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack – 1500HP VW Golf

July 2nd, 2019

This 1995 Volkswagen Golf GTi gives terms like “sequentially-shifted” and “all-wheel drive” new meaning. You see, this wild-looking VW manufactures 1,500hp with a pair of VR6 turbocharged engines (mated with a pair of sequentially-shifted manual transmissions) – one on each end! First, the engines. They are matching VR6 mills built with powder-forged connecting rods and JE pistons. Up top are Techtonics (solid lift) camshafts. Intake and exhaust manifolds are full custom with a pair of Garrett 67-millimeter turbochargers (air-to-water intercoolers) furnishing the air. The gearboxes are both from KAPS Sequential. Each engine makes approximately 750hp. The car is owned, built Read More

Lamborghini Aventador S VS. Tesla Model SP100D

June 25th, 2019

Who would ever think that a total electric sedan would be held in contention with a legendary Italian sports car when it comes to running the quarter-mile? Well, Tesla changed our way of thinking. First, it was the Tesla Roadster. Now the SP100D is the all-electric bad boy. With the equivalent of 680hp and a shocking (pun intended) 900 lb.-ft. of torque, the Tesla sedan is virtually unrivaled at cutting a light and coming out of the hole. Its power is transferred immediately and its all-wheel drive capabilities make traction consistent and secure. After that, another weakness is not exhibited Read More

200 MPH Vengeance Corvette

March 7th, 2019

Fast Chevrolet Corvette coupes and Vengeance Racing (Cumming, Georgia) seem to go together like peanut butter and strawberry preserves. Every time we see these guys, they have a trailer loaded with a half-dozen (or so) of the most capable LS powered sports cars imaginable. Today is special for Ron and the crew from Vengeance. They are all set to surprise friend and long-time customer Chuck beyond his wildest dreams. With about 2-years on his Novi 2200 and 7.0-liter LSX setup, Chuck brought his Corvette in needing a refresh on the engine with some more potent upgrades to follow (when the Read More

9-Second Evo – Track Rolls

February 11th, 2019

Goal oriented people tend to stand out in society. Racers are no different. This Puerto Rican Lancer Evolution was built with a goal of running 8s in the quarter and hitting 190 mph in the rolls. Crew and car are making huge strides. Today, they will get a chance to hone their skills in the All-Wheel Drive Class of the PR500. Any other fast AWD cars come to mind? Hmm… Even at first glimpse, the carbon fiber doors, roof, and deck lid hint that this isn’t your ordinary four-banger sedan. Nevertheless, an inline four-cylinder, 2.0-liter (4G63) engine with a Precision Read More

266 MPH BIG RED Camaro – Inside the Build

February 10th, 2019

As a muscle car that began as a production model Camaro Z28, this Chevy has evolved a long way into the complete racing machine you see today. BIG RED was initially modified as a Pro Touring car. After shocking the field at the legendary La Carrera Classic, in Mexico, this classic cruiser was kicked to the curb for being too much for the other Pro Touring cars (Lamborghini, Ferrari, Porsche, etc.) to handle. After all, it was “only” a 1969 Camaro. Since then, BIG RED has gone on a tear. It is currently setup for top speed airstrip (mile and Read More
