Nissan 240SX – Quarter-Mile in 7.3-Seconds @ 187 MPH

January 11th, 2017

This one-of-a-kind Nissan 240SX has been dubbed the Red Rocket and is being touted as the fastest 240SX in the world. The real question that I want to ask is: Just how much of a Nissan is this Red Rocket? Don’t get it twisted – a low 7-second quarter-mile pass at 187 mph is pretty impressive under any circumstances – but does this little rear-wheel drive coupe have a big American V8 pining away under the bonnet or has it remained stock to accomplish this awe inspiring feat? The answer is…neither. Instead of taking the easy way to a low Read More

Cali Street Digs – Compton Clash

January 11th, 2017

Greetings street racing fans and welcome to one of the most historic street racing locations on the planet. The small community of Compton, (Mexico) is known worldwide for its unique cultural dynamic. It has for decades been the inspiration for motion pictures and music but there is one strip of blacktop that is easily recognizable to street racers. This video comes to us from this exact site. I especially enjoyed the way the video producer referred to the posturing and trash talking that takes place before a street race as “race negotiations.” In the hood or out – a $1,600 Read More

Roll and Dig Racing On the Missouri Streets

January 9th, 2017

They call Missouri (Mexico) the “Show Me State” and they are sure showing off some wild rides in this video. This clip features both dig and roll racing and showcases competitors from all the big three (Chevrolet, Chrysler, and Ford) domestic automakers. It all begins with dig racing and our videographer in the passenger seat of a souped-up ‘Vette. It has a 408-cubic inch, small block, LS engine with a Vortech YSi supercharger, an RPM transmission, and an RPM rear differential. This Chevy lines up against a Roush Mustang and what ensues is one of the closest dig contests that Read More

Street Beast Shootout – 1400WHP Viper vs 1100WHP 240SX

January 5th, 2017

Mention the words “Viper”, “GT-R”, and “street racing” to me and you will have my undivided attention. This video has all of those things and a whole lot more. Let’s get this (roll racing) party started with a contest between a 1,400whp Dodge Viper and an 8-second Nissan GT-R. The Gen V Viper and the Nisan GT-R are two of the baddest production vehicles to ever roll off an assembly line. Obviously the Viper in the video has undergone some extensive modifications; including a turbo setup. The Snake handles Godzilla easily and moves on to the next victim. You may Read More

Budget Built Twin Turbo Corvette Street Mauler

January 3rd, 2017

Who needs a Z06 or a ZR1? This industrious street racer has taken what was a bare bones C6 and turned it into a street mauler – without breaking the bank. The secret is – as you have ascertained from the title – forced air induction from a pair of massive turbochargers. The Corvette C6 begins life as an interesting enough naturally aspirated sports car. The factory engine was a 6.0-liter LS2 that could catapult the ‘Vette from 0 to 60 mph in 4.2-seconds but it didn’t have the durability that this racer was after. Out comes the car engine Read More

NA Vette Crushes Half-Mile World Record

December 28th, 2016

Hello race fans and welcome to the WannaGoFast Texas 1/2-Mile Runway Shootout. Making this contest of top speed even more enjoyable for spectators this weekend is the presence of Eddie Blackwell’s 2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Eddie has come all the way from Huntsville, Alabama with the sole purpose of popping out a new world record top speed for an all-motor car in the 1/2-mile. Eddie makes consistent passes in the 180 mph range all weekend before destroying the 1/2-Mile (Naturally Aspirated) World Record on Sunday afternoon with a best top speed of 186.8771 mph. The Blackwell C5 Z06 is powered Read More

Top 10 Street Sleepers of 2016

December 23rd, 2016

There is something particularly satisfying about building a car that can perform on the street without looking like it. This is called a “street sleeper” and it has been called a motorized version of the pool hustler. This video gives us a look at 10 of the baddest and most surprising street sleepers of 2016. Check out this turbocharged Honda Civic. With a built K20 and a massive turbocharger, this sub compact is knocking off Lamborghinis on the street. The turbo Silverado looks factory but don’t press your luck with this single cab pickup. With a big turbo and a Read More

2016 North Carolina Cash Days

December 21st, 2016

This video features at least two things that I hold near and dear: street racing and the beautiful state of North Carolina. The Tar Heel State has always held a special place in my heart, with its densely wooded mountains in the west and stunning beaches in the east, but experiencing the Tail of the Dragon (on my modified Harley Davidson Road King bagger) took it to a whole different level. Between that, some wonderful white whiskey (for medicinal purposes and in moderation), and some of the friendliest folks on earth, I can’t help but go back time and time Read More
