February 10th, 2016

I bet you thought that you’d seen everything there was to see on a drag strip, right? Well, take a gander at this turbocharged diesel Chevrolet S10 pickup. The guys down at firepunk transmissions built this truck to test abuse one of their bulletproof diesel transmissions; and test it they did at the Street Car Takeover Event in Indianapolis. This mid-size pickup is equipped with a 5.9-liter Cummins (Dodge) diesel engine and it billows black smoke like a tar keel. It’s making about 750hp and an amazing 1,450-pound-feet of torque. This thing posts a best ET of 10-seconds and we Read More

February 5th, 2016

Did you say that this clip shows a 7-second V6 powered Pontiac Firebird? How can that be? Well, you start with a 3.8-liter Buick engine (from an 80s GTA) and then you add a pair of 62-millimeter ATP turbos. This eye-catching Pearl White ‘Bird has a unique sound that captured the imaginations of everyone at the Street Car Takeover in Phoenix. The first pass is of the roll racing variety. The Firebird bumps up against a bodacious TT ’68 Camaro that walks away easily. Next he spanks a late-model Camaro with only bolt-on modifications in the eighth-mile. There’s lots of Read More

4-Wide Street Racing – U.S. vs Japanese vs European

February 4th, 2016

Get a load of these four bad street cruisers as they lock horns on a crowded highway. There is a 700hp Ford 5.0 Mustang, a 700hp Subaru Impreza WRX STi, an 800hp Mazda Speed3, and an 800hp Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG. This is elite level roll racing as seen from a dash cam and the sights and sounds are unbelievable. The first contest is between the STi and the Mazda and they finish two-heats even Steven. After that the Mustang rolls out against the STi and who knows what happens in that one. The supercharged Mercedes comes on the scene and Read More

Sunset Street Racing South of the Border

January 29th, 2016

This clip has some great heads-up roll racing from the streets of “Old Mexico” – coming at you in all its glory. The cars are primed and the drivers are revved-up for action, so you know it’s going to be an interesting night. The Cadillac CTS-Vs are out in force but our first matchup is between a 5.0-liter Ford Mustang and a 6.4-liter HEMI Chrysler 300 SRT. These two break even as far as I can tell; then the Chrysler rolls out against a CTS-V (6.2-liter supercharged). The Caddy jumps on him and walks the dog all the way to Read More

January 22nd, 2016

What can you do with a snail of a 1984 Chevrolet S10 Blazer? You can start by snatching out the V6 and cramming the engine bay full of a massive 6.0-liter (LS) engine with a 408-cubic-inch stroker kit and a set of Pro-Filer cylinder heads.
