Tesla P100D vs. Dodge Challenger Hellcat – Street Car Takeover

May 20th, 2019

Hello racing fans and welcome back to Thunder Valley at Bristol Dragway in beautiful Bristol, Tennessee. Our focal car today is a familiar one to most YouTubers. It is a Tesla P100D that has been whipping muscle cars all over the country. With all-electric power, this thing blasts out of the hole like a rocket and posts very consistent elapsed times. This makes the Tesla ideal for Index Racing. Unlike conventional drag racing, in which a competitor gets down the track as quickly as possible, Index Racing is the practice of selecting a time just slower than your fastest ever Read More

May 15th, 2019

Greetings racing fans and welcome to Street Car Takeover, coming to you from Bristol Dragway in Bristol, TN.

Turbo Vette – 2500HP Brute

May 10th, 2019

It’s Street Car Takeover at Thunder Valley and our feature car for this clip is a real bruiser. With a 460 cubic-inch motor and a 118-millimeter turbocharger, this potent Chevy is expected to rule the field if he can get all those ponies to the pavement successfully. In addition to the big LSx engine and turbo, this car has Kook’s stainless exhaust headers, a dry-sump oiling system, and it has been swapped to a solid rear axle setup. Thompson Motorsports built the car, and this is only the fifth or sixth outing. When these guys get the bugs worked out, Read More

CTS-V vs. Mustang and Corvette – Street Hits

May 4th, 2019

As the summer evenings grow warmer and the risk of precipitation is reduced, the sounds of high-performance, interstate devouring, roll race cars can be heard. The late evening and early morning hours, when traffic is virtually non-existent, are prime-time for rolling these purpose-built machines onto the highway (of Mexico) for competition. Many heavily modified roll racers have showed up for this evening of fun. There is a Corvette C7 with a camshaft upgrade, a V-7 YSI Supercharger by Vortech, and a methanol injection. A 1,000hp Nissan GT-R and another (980hp) ‘Vette with an LSx engine and a YSI blower. This Read More

9-Second C7 ZR1 – Stock Motor Bolt-On Record Holder

May 2nd, 2019

At the risk of dating myself, I will tell you that the release of the movie “Corvette Summer” found a teenage version of myself in the local cinema; popcorn and soft drink in hand. The fact that actors played parts in the cult classic was of no consequence to me. The radically customized Corvette was the star and I shall never forget her. The ZR1 featured in this clip, while lacking the insane body mods, makes me think of a modernized version of the Corvette Summer car. Coming at you from Street Car Takeover and being touted as the World Read More

Texas Rattlesnake – Heir to the Throne of No-Prep?

May 1st, 2019

Greetings racing fans and welcome to Bounty Hunters No-Prep Grudge Nationals IV. Meet Ronnie Hobbs and his Canary Yellow Chevrolet S10; known as the Texas Rattlesnake. This impressive reptile is away on her maiden voyage and running in the Big Tire Class. She’s packing a serious punch from a 564 cubic-inch Brad Anderson Enterprises (BAE) mill, topped off with a pair of 98-millimeter Precision turbochargers. Major power output capacity is the result – to the tune of approximately 3,000hp! As with any fresh build, this truck is working through the bugs, but is exceptionally well-built and no expense has been Read More

Only Cadillac CTS-V3 in the Eights

April 26th, 2019

Yee-Haw! You folks like Mexico? How about lightning fast Cadillacs? The Caddy featured in this clip is being hailed as the first and only CTS-Version 3 (CTS-V, produced after 2016) to ever dip into an 8-second quarter-mile. While the typical CTS-V is quite a capable performance machine from the factory, this one is even more special. With a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that makes 640hp, Brembo Brakes, and an 8-speed automatic transmission, the V3 is no slouch – even in stock trim. Houston Street Monsters does away with the Lingenfelter blower and replaces it with an improved F1A-94 ProCharger. The exhaust Read More

LS7 Swapped Gen III Camaro IROC-Z

April 24th, 2019

Hello race fans. Meet Bruce, with Hawks Motorsports and (customer) Brad’s unique 1987 Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z. With less than 10k on the odometer, Brad decided to do something special with his slug of a Gen III Camaro. He dropped it by Hawks Motorsports (Easley, S.C.) for a huge dose of TLC. Hawks decided to integrate the slo-poke IROC-Z with a much faster 2015 Gen VI Chevrolet Camaro Z28. After the engine bay was spruced up with a little clear-coat (Kolorworks); out came the meager 5.0-liter “pollution solution” V8 and the mighty LS7 (7.0-liter) all-aluminum V8 took its place. Wizard Cooling Read More

Street Hits – Corvette ZR1 vs TT Lambo vs Nissan GT-R

April 18th, 2019

Greetings street racers and racing fans from every walk if life. It’s street racing time again! This time, we are dropping down south of the border for some top-tier roll racing on the freeway. On hand are exotics, imports, and domestics – in various states of modification. All are purpose-built with roll racing in mind. It has been said that good things come to those who wait – but that’s not true in roll racing. Good things come to those who don’t take too long to spool up and build enough boost to fly through the top end. Let’s see Read More
