2.000HP 1965 Chevrolet C10 Pickup

July 21st, 2017

This fantastic looking 1965 Chevy C10 is being purpose-built to rule the street racing scene in the hometown of a guy named Chris Red – something or other. At the heart of this beast is a 400 cubic-inch, LS based, Dart Racing block. In order to make the LS durable enough to withstand this massive amount (2,187hp @ 6,900 RPM)) of horsepower, Steve Morris Engines has recently gone through the engine and they are currently in the process of tuning it (with owner, Chris R.) in their state-of-the-art dyno facility. It has a specially ground hydraulic roller camshaft with a Read More

650HP BMW M5 – Street Rolls

July 12th, 2017

I just love a luxury car that can pull its weight in a street race. At the risk of revealing my advanced age, I’ll tell you that the luxury street racer bug first bit me when I built a huge 1978 Cadillac Coupe de Ville and implanted a nitrous injected big block Chevy running gear. It was fun but also heavy. This 2014 BMW M5 is fun but it certainly ain’t that heavy. The Bavarian Motor Works are globally recognized as leaders in the niche of elegant sports cars. The “M” in M5 refers to the BMW Motorsports division which Read More

Tesla Model S P100D vs 1,000HP Toyota Supra Drag and Roll Races

July 10th, 2017

Watch one of the most advanced and quickest cars on the road, the Tesla Model S P100D Ludicrous take on an old school import from Japan with 1,000 HP, a single turbo Toyota Supra.    

950HP AC Cobra – Half-Mile

July 10th, 2017

This car would make Carroll Shelby proud! While purists may complain that it isn’t a factory car – no one can argue that it embodies the racing spirit promoted by the legendary racer and founder of Shelby America. Produced as a (2,400-pound) kit car by Backdraft Racing, this AC Cobra replica is packing a very modern punch. Under the black metal flake hood beats the heart of an all-aluminum modular Coyote racing engine. A Whipple supercharger and a 250-shot nitrous kit provide an extra degree of get-up-and-go. Traction is certainly a problem but breaking loose between gears is a problem Read More

It’s Grrrreat! V8 Sunbeam Tiger

June 30th, 2017

Tony the Tiger it ain’t – this tiny British made coupe is rarer than hen’s teeth. The RG Sunbeam Alpine Roadster was produced by the Roole’s Group from 1964 until 1967. In the mold of the popular AC Cobra, some Sunbeam models were brought to the U.S. where Carroll Shelby put his mark on the line and gave them the moniker Sunbeam Tiger. Later, RG opted to move production back to the U.K. and just give Shelby a piece of the profits. Unlike the Sunbeam Alpine, the Tiger was outfitted with either a 260 cubic-inch or a 289 cubic-inch Ford Read More

1360WHP Twin-Turbo Viper

June 29th, 2017

Greetings racing fans and welcome to the sunny state of Mexico for some top-tier roll racing on the highway. Turbo cars are advancing rapidly (get it?) in the area of dig racing but where turbocharged cars really shine is roll racing. After all, there’s no need to spool up when you are already running 60 mph in second gear at 4K RPM. The three cars featured in this video embody what turbocharged roll racing is all about. They are skillfully modified and outfitted to handle the rolling hills and gentle curves of racing on the highway. The Calvo Motorsports Viper Read More

King of the Streets – Grinch Mustang

June 28th, 2017

The Grinch certainly wasn’t the shiniest car at King of the Streets (KOTS) Chicago – it wasn’t even the prettiest car in the Gangster Class. Fortunately for the Grinch crew, it ain’t how you look but what you have under the hood. What the Grinch has under the hood is a borrowed (big thanks to Corn Dog!) big block and a few kits of nitrous. Power is estimated to be in the 1,200hp range. After winning the Gangster Class at KOTS in 2016, and struggling all week to supplant their hurt motor with the borrowed big block mill, it would Read More

NRE Street Sleeper – 1000HP Camaro

June 27th, 2017

Nelson Racing Engines (NRE) has made it their business to be on the cutting edge in the production of turbocharged performance. As it turns out – they make a pretty good video, too. Being sort of a sneaky, bottom-feeding, street racer myself, there is nothing that I appreciate more than a seriously modified street sleeper. I am speaking of a vehicle that is capable of gapping almost anything on the street but you can’t differentiate it from stock without some inside information. A top-shelf street sleeper will appear stock even when the hood is open. This 1,000hp 2013 Chevrolet Camaro Read More

Chi-town Heat – 2300HP 1966 Chevelle

June 24th, 2017

Attention all racing fans; be on the lookout for a stunning 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle. The slick blue car is on escape from the show car circuit and was last seen running circles around the competition at King of the Streets Chicago. The suspect should be considered armed and dangerous to other street race cars. Known for its beautiful hue and massive (14-71) blower protruding from the hood, it is packing a 572 cubic-inch big block engine and making about 2,300hp. At just over 3,400-pounds, this beast is often believed to be much heavier than her actual weight. She has been Read More

9-Second Daily Driver – Cadillac CTS-V

June 24th, 2017

You’ve got to love a daily driver that you can take to the track and run 9-second passes all weekend. All it takes is a little modification and a lot of nitrous. The Cadillac CTS-V is the epitome of performance and luxury in a single automobile. In stock trim, it is equipped with a 6.2-liter supercharged engine that makes 556hp and 551 lb.-ft. of torque. It can get from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6-seconds and it has an electronically controlled top speed of 200 mph. Of course, it has all the amenities including air conditioning, leather seating, and premium Read More
