Cadillac Style – CTS-V Posts a 10-Second Quarter-Mile

November 5th, 2015

Cadillac with drag radials or not, if you sport a personalized tag plate the reads “IWALKU” then you better have something under the hood. As you can see in this video, this guy has it in spades. If you have never seen the likes of a Cadillac dogging out Camaros and Mustangs, then you’ll definitely want to see his clip. IWALKU lays down three sub 11-second passes (10.52 @ 131, 10.54 @ 130, and 10.57 @ 130) in one night of dig racing at the local track – that ain’t too shabby by any standards. The CTS-V’s running a stock Read More

Trailer Trash LS Malibu Runs 8.90 Quarter-Mile

November 4th, 2015

Building a drag car on a budget ain’t pretty. Building a turbocharged drag car on a budget can get downright ugly. This Malibu may be ugly but the time slips keep getting prettier with each pass. Sure the paint job is a mess, the wheels are mismatched, and the interior is ratty but this Chevy managed to dive down into the eights, putting up an 8.90-second 1/4-mile pass at 150.8 mph. The engine is a stock Chevrolet 5.3-liter LS with a stock crankshaft and cylinder heads. It does have upgraded connecting rods, wrist pins, and pistons. A Borg Warner 88-millimeter Read More

Stolen Lambo vs Fatt Cat’s Challenger

November 3rd, 2015

When street racing, it pays to “Drive it like you stole it”, as the old saying goes. In this clip it is alleged that the driver of the 2015 Lamborghini Huracan may have actually stole it. He is an automobile transporter out on the town and looking for a thrill. If you only have one shot at seeing how you measure up in a street race, then you’ll want to head down south of the border (I didn’t know that there was a city in Mexico called Houston, hmmm) and look up a hustler named Fatt Cat. Chances are that Read More

Turbo Mustang vs Supercharged Vette Street Racing

November 2nd, 2015

This street battle not only encompasses a time honored tradition between Ford AND Chevy but also concerns players from two distinctively different forced air induction camps. The popular Ford Mustang Boss edition is equipped with a bullet proof stock 5.0-liter V8 engine with upgraded valvetrain components and an EDP 7675 turbocharger. The Corvette uses a supercharger in conjunction with a stock 6.2-liter V8 with upgraded cylinder heads, camshaft, and a set of long tube exhaust headers. The Ford claims 900hp and the Vette boasts 800hp. This looks like 60 mph roll racing and the Chevy gets the jump on the Read More

Tesla P90D Ludicrous vs P85D Insane Heads up 1/4 Mile Results at the Dragstrip

October 29th, 2015

We have some results from the first heads up all out drag race at Sacramento Raceway between an all new Tesla P90D Ludicrous vs a Tesla P85D Insane.  The Tesla P90D a best time of 11.4 @ 116.8 MPH with the P85D running a best of 11.7 @ 114.2 MPH. This is the 2nd real world 1/4 mile result we’ve seen from the P90D Ludicrous with another car running 11.3 @ 115.9 MPH last month.    Tesla states the car should run a 10.9 in the 1/4 mile and a recent motor trend article is confirming those numbers along with a Read More

Cadillac CTS-V Battles Dodge Viper on the Street

October 29th, 2015

In the real world of street racing Caddys don’t rub fenders with Vipers – or do they? In this clip at least one Cadillac not only takes on an SRT Viper but leaves it in its tracks. This video consists of two passes. In the first pass, the Viper has the go-go juice turned up to 1,100 psi and he gives the CTS-V a decent run.  In the second run, the Viper turns the laughing gas down to 900 psi and only puts forth a paltry effort, at best. Both cars are equipped with a healthy dose of NOS from Read More

Turbo Cutlass Tears Up the Oklahoma City Street Car Takeover

October 27th, 2015

If you haven’t seen this sliver, Hurst edition, 1982 Oldsmobile Cutlass (affectionately dubbed “The Cutty”) blistering the 1/4-mile over the past six-months, then you must have your head under a rock. After a mishap last season that took him out of the running in the Street Outlaws championship and a revamp that saw the car go from nitrous to a turbocharger, Cutty owner/operator Andrade revealed (at the beginning of the 2015 season) that his Olds is making around 1,400hp and 1,190 lb.-ft. of torque. Under the hood, a Texas Speed built (LS based) 408-cubic inch engine with Wiseco internals and Read More

2500HP AMC Puts Down 6.78-Second Quarter-Mile Pass @ 210 MPH

October 27th, 2015

In a virtual sea of awe inspiring automobiles, this nasty AMC Javelin (owned and operated by Bryant Goldstone) really stands out. The five-days of Drag Week 2015 is a brutal proving ground for any drag racer but this 2,500hp behemoth averaged 6-second passes over the entire five-days of racing on four separate tracks – that’s pretty amazing. Campaigning in the Ultimate Iron Class, this American classic is well equipped with a 572-cubic-inch Ultra-Tech Racing engine and a pair of Precision 88-millimeter turbochargers. This clip depicts the mighty Mopar in some stunning heads-up dig racing. The first pass nets a 6.98-second Read More

Street Racing – New Mexico Style

October 23rd, 2015

This video is over 6-minutes of heads-up dig (and roll) racing on the streets of New Mexico. All the likely suspects are present and the action is “muy caliente”. Here are some of the highlights from racing into the New Mexico night. A 740hp 2004 Subaru WRX STi with a Precision 6466 turbocharger destroys a 600hp WRX STi. The Terminator Mustang Cobra takes apart a 700hp all-wheel drive Honda Civic, a 400hp Dodge Neon, and gives a 750hp Mitsubishi Evo a good run for his money. A 600hp twin turbocharged Infiniti G35 goes against a 630hp Cadillac CTS-V and a Read More

Dig Racing from Atlanta – Corvette Z06 vs Lambo, GT-R & Hellcat

October 21st, 2015

If what this ‘Vette does to the competition is an example of Southern hospitality – then I don’t believe I’ll have any – thanks anyhow. The Chevrolet C6 Corvette Z06 rolls off the assembly line with a 505hp 7.0-liter LS7 with titanium alloy connecting rods and a dry sump oiling system. This particular car has been treated to a camshaft upgrade, a high-flow intake manifold, and a nitrous kit. No estimated horsepower rating has been made available at this time. You certainly don’t expect a $65k Chevy to spank a $240k Lamborghini Gallardo but that is exactly what happens at Read More
