929WHP – Vengeance Camaro ZL1 Dyno

October 31st, 2018

Wait a second – Whipple? Isn’t that the grocer who was always telling us not to squeeze the Charmin? Yep, but it’s also the brand of supercharger that’s helping this radically modified Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 to manufacture thunderous amounts of horsepower and torque. Right off the assembly line, the Camaro ZL1 is a force of nature. It has a 6.2-liter supercharged engine that churns out 650hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. Not too shabby. Enter Jason Levia and Vengeance Racing (Cumming, Georgia). When the factory get-up-and-go just made Jason want more; he handed the ZL1 over to Vengeance Racing for Read More

Import vs. Domestic – Boosted Mustang vs. Lamborghini

October 31st, 2018

Check it our all you high rollers. We have some import versus domestic roll racing south of the border, down Mexico way. In a rolling version of Clash of the Titans, these modified chariots are all set to do battle on the interstate. The gloves are off as these purpose-built machines lock horns in brief but intense contests that will take these cars from 60 mph to 140 mph, before lining up to do it again. In our first dust-up, we have a Paxton Mustang running E85 fuel; rolling out against a twin turbo Lamborghini (750hp) with an EuroPower Stage Read More

Turbo Silverado Gaps Camaro ZL1

October 29th, 2018

Greetings drag racing fans! Welcome to Street Car Takeover from the Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, Georgia. A fast-moving pickup truck has captured our attention and it is gapping Camaros, old and new. As a matter of fact, the way this Silverado is coming out of the hole, it’s going to be hard for any street machine to drive around him. The feature vehicle for this clip is a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with a 5.3-liter engine (stock bottom end) and a VTR 83-milimeter turbocharger. It also has a Holley intake manifold and it is running E85 fuel. The truck is Read More

LS Swapped 280Z Turbo – Tears Up the Street

October 25th, 2018

Ready for a ride along? Our feature car is a 1975 Datsun 280Z. Not a stripped-down zombie wagon, this is a complete street car with nice paint and a great looking interior. Car owner Chris helped his Dad (Wolf) build the car before his dad passed a short rime ago. The video and the car are dedicated to his memory. Wolf was an old school legend in the car game and he could do anything on a car except build transmissions. Godspeed Wolf, wherever you are I hope you are banging gears and burning rubber everyday. You brought a car Read More

Fun Down Under – 6-Second Mazda RX-3

October 16th, 2018

This thing is an angry beast! These Aussies yanked the rotary motor out of a Mazda RX-3 and stuck in an LS package. Focused around a 7.0-liter mill (alloy connecting rods and All Pro aluminum cylinder heads), this twin turbocharged (Turbosmart) setup is capable of turning consistent 7-second elapsed times. Today, the crew will attempt to dip into the sixes. Castle Hill Performance does the heavy lifting on this tiny monster and it is tuned by SCF Race Cars. Fresh off the trailer, the RX-3 runs a (personal best) 6.95-seconds @ 201 mph! In a solo run, everything went absolutely Read More

Turbo Trans Am vs. ProCharged Corvette – Street Hits

October 9th, 2018

By: Ricardo Perez This clip unfolds south if the border where representatives from the BIG 3 (GM, Ford, Dodge) are throwing down with heavily modified machines in some roll racing hits. There are also a few imports and some bikes to pretty things up a bit. It all begins with a 60 mph-roll between a 1,200hp Nissan GT-R (SPD 1400 turbo kit) and a twin turbo Cadillac CTS-V. After the lineup; the Nissan lets him have it. The Nissan rolls out against a 1,000hp (nitrous) Dodge Challenger Hellcat. Once again, the GT-R jumps out and gaps the Mopar FTW! Next, the Read More

1200HP Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG – Standing Half-Mile

October 5th, 2018

GAD Motors, a German firm, specializes in making Mercedes-Benz vehicles even more powerful than stock. From a ho-hum C-Series to an SLS AMG to a 6-wheeled GLK; GAD is on the case with everything from a few bolt-ons to a complete rebuild with power-adders. This video features a pair of Mercedes vehicles that run the full spectrum of the lineup. There is a C-Series that (they say) resembles a German taxi and a SLS AMG with those gull-wing doors. Both these vehicles have been outfitted with turbochargers, intercoolers, oversized fuel injectors, cold air intakes, custom exhaust headers, custom intake manifolds, Read More

8-Second Twin Turbo FoxBody Mustang

October 3rd, 2018

Greetings drag racing fans and fellow speed freaks from every sport. Please allow me to introduce Mark and his 1,000hp Ford Mustang. Yes, it’s a FoxBody and, not only is it one of the fastest street cars in the country, it’s also one of the most amazing – from an aesthetic point of view. No LS motor here; not even a modular. Under the hood is a 5.8-liter (351W) small block Ford with a set of hi-rise cylinder heads that have been ported and polished to the point that you can almost see into the combustion chamber. This is a Read More
