Missouri Street Digs

May 10th, 2016

Here is some premier street racing action from the show-me state. This is one insane night during Mini Cash Days that brought out some big names – like Skinnies Twin-Turbo Fox Mustang and the FR8TRAIN Trans Am. From the famous to the dark-horse no-names; these racers are giving it their all in some very competitive street racing action. There is one standout. It’s a bad Firebird with a big block Chevy (502 cid) engine and an 84-millimeter turbocharger. Of course, the FR8TRAIN is doing his thing and so is Skinny. Both of them won close races. The Farm Truck was Read More

2017 Ford GT Application Videos

May 10th, 2016

Over the years our 2005 Ford GT has not only been featured in numerous tests, races and shows but it’s also been in our garage the longest.  While the various Vipers, Lamborghinis, GT-Rs, Ferraris and McLarens have come and gone, the Ford GT has been special enough and fast enough to continually make the cut and be the last car standing. Ford Motor Company will only be producing a maximum of 500 examples of the all new 2017-2018 Ford GT over the next two years.  With the demand and buzz being incredibly high and with such a small number of cars being available, Ford has Read More

May 9th, 2016

Most of us have had (or will have) a car that we wish we would have held onto. For John Andrade, Sr. it’s his first car and it is a doozie. John has got himself a beautiful 1970 Olds Cutlass 442; running in the 10.0 Index Class. You may recognize the Andrade name. John Andrade, Jr. has gained some degree of fame with his own Olds Cutlasss from a different decade. It is called the Cutty and Jayce Andrade campaigns the impressive Yeti Mustang. John, Sr. has posted a best ET of 8.90-seconds in the 1/4-mile and this is a Read More

Turbo S10 Pickup Spanks Muscle Cars

May 6th, 2016

The odds of a square-body Chevy S10 Cyclone pickup truck taking on an array of muscle cars in the standing half-mile – and winning – are pretty slim. Then again, most S10 trucks aren’t as well equipped for the task as this one. This is a family project crafted with pride by a father and his two-sons. The best weekend run for this truck was an impressive 159.4 mph. This sub-compact pickup is packing a 408-cubic-inch LS engine with a Callie’s crankshaft and stroker kit, stock cylinder heads, a camshaft upgrade, a Turbonetics 101-millimeter compressor/91-millimeter turbine, a massive 4L80E automatic Read More

Turbo Z28 Street and Strip Racing

May 4th, 2016

While most drag racers prefer a low-slung ride, this fourth-generation Camaro Z28 owner seems to have actually increased the height of his street sleeper with larger tires and wheels. At any rate, the 6-speed manual transmission must make this thing challenging in competitive situations. The degree of body twist exhibited during the hole-shot (dig racing) indicates that the factory suspension may be overloaded with horsepower. Lets face it – that’s the best kind of problem to have. This attractive pony car is well equipped with a late model (2006 Silverado) 5.3-liter engine with a camshaft upgrade, stronger connecting rod bolts, Read More

Street Racing – Beater Bomb Mustang vs. TT Nova

April 29th, 2016

This is street racing at its finest. It features the classic battle between Chevrolet and Ford (sort of – you see, the Mustang is equipped with an LS engine). Nevertheless, this is some awesome heads-up dig racing action that takes place on a beautiful day in an abandoned industrial park, beside a giant retaining wall for excellent sound effects. Multiple camera angles make this an outstanding video; there’s even a ‘down-and-dirty’ angle at the finish line. The Mustang hooks up and jumps out early, carrying the front end down the track virtually the entire distance. All the while, the lead-sled Read More

2014 Audi RS7 – 10-Second Quarter-Mile

April 28th, 2016

If you happen to pull up alongside this grocery-getter, you had better be on your best behavior. Why? Because if you are spoiling for a race, then you just might get spanked. This inconspicuous looking sedan has been clocked at 10.34-seconds and 135.5 mph in the 1/4-mile. The Audi RS7 is pretty impressive in factory trim with its 4.0-liter V8. The stock engine produces 553hp and 516 lb.-ft. of torque at 5,700 RPM. It is a 32-valve, dual overhead camshaft, all aluminum (block and cylinder heads), engine with direct fuel injection. This particular car has had a turbocharger upgrade (from Read More

2016 Lamborghini Aventador SV LP750-4

April 27th, 2016

The Lamborghini brand has a rich reputation for sleek and powerful premium sports cars. This version may be the baddest of the heap. The name ‘Aventador’ is taken from a particularly vicious Spanish fighting bull and the ‘SV’ represents Super Veloce or ‘Super Fast’. The ‘LP750’ symbolizes the 741hp made by the 6.5-liter V12 engine and the ‘4’ indicates that this beast is all-wheel driven. This Italian masterpiece is capable of rocketing from 0 to 60 mph in only 2.8-seconds; making it a killer street racing machine. It has a top speed that exceeds 217 mph and costs around $500K.

1975 Celica Posts 10-Second Quarter-Mile

April 25th, 2016

You seldom see a vintage Toyota Celica making waves on the drag strip. This little car has everything it takes to pull off that classic import look and all the high-performance goodies to make it run like a modern roll racing superstar. It has the shape that drag racers love; narrow and sleek with a low center of gravity but what about horsepower? How about a 2JZ 3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder with a piston upgrade – then add an 8285 turbocharger and presto – you are ready to go racing. The setup is good for 1,000hp. The Speed Warehouse team did Read More
