King of the Streets – Gen II Camaro on NOS

July 24th, 2019

Welcome to Chicago drag racing fans. This is No Prep drag racing from King of the Streets (KOTS) and our feature car is an unbelievable Gen II Camaro Z28 with a 402 cubic-inch engine and a healthy shot of laughing gas. Competing in the Junior Class, this car leaves violently and cruises through the trap with confidence. Looks great doing it, too. In the first round, we see a Nova clone (left lane) get the early jump on our Camaro. Both cars are running nitrous. As is often the case with this volatile chemical, the engine in the Nova clone Read More

Black Beauty – 900WHP Buick Regal V6

July 18th, 2019

In 1987, the fastest American made production car was not powered by a V8 engine. The car was the Buick Grand National GNX and the engine was a 3.8-liter V6 with a turbocharger. Nothing spectacular but enough push to put them on top of the heap. Meet Jerry. He loves Grand Nationals and owns three. Today, Jerry has agreed to walk us through his pride and joy. It’s a 1987 GN with only 36k miles on the chassis. The running gear has even less. It’s still a V6 but it has been fortified with all the best internal components. Jerry Read More

LT1 Gen IV Camaro – 8.01-Second Quarter-Mile

July 16th, 2019

Let’s drop in at Street Car Takeover and have a look at a beast of a Gen IV Camaro. Campaigned by the guys at Tick Performance, this thing is being billed as the fastest LT1/T56 combination on the planet. Powered by what the driver calls the “Junk LT” this Gen II LT1 engine is built with an economy crankshaft, connecting rods and pistons. Cramming air down the snout of this unlikely mill is a Precision (8891) 88-millimeter turbo. The transmission is a manual T56 built by Tick Performance. It’s loaded with their clutch components and hardware. Output at the rear Read More

Half-Mile Pikes Peak – 1100HP Twin Turbo Ford GT

July 12th, 2019

Just hanging out at the 2019 Shift S3CTOR Pike’s Peak Airstrip Attack, TRC ran across this low-slung Ford GT owned by the Christmas Family. Campaigned by the sibling team of Alexandria and Coy Christmas, this is one of the most stunning and powerful cars on any track. Alexandria currently holds the prestigious honor of being considered the “Fastest Half-Mile Woman in the World”. Built by Top Speed Motorsports (Alpharetta, GA), the beautiful Canary Yellow Ford GT featured in this video is powered by a virtually stock (block and heads) 5.4-liter engine built by Jon Kaase Race Engines (Winder, GA).

Junkyard Dog – Pontiac Firebird on AWD GT-R Chassis

July 10th, 2019

When Gregg (lead technician for the Hoonigan Racing Division) decided to build a retromod of his own, you just knew that it would be something unique and awesome. Well, it does not disappoint. First, Gregg spotted a rusted-out hull from a 1971 Pontiac Trans Am. It had been sitting in a desert (just outside Vegas) for more than a decade. Full of tumbleweeds and sand, the body actually had a river running through it at one time. Gregg pulled the forgotten Thunder Chicken out of the cactus den and took it home to begin its rebirth. Never wanting to blend Read More

Hillbilly Deluxe – 1960 Chevy C10 1500HP

July 10th, 2019

This is a must see No Prep monster. Not your everyday, run-of-the-mill dragster; this is one stunning 1960 C10 shortbed pickup truck. The body is all steel except for the front clip and the bed sides. Equipped with a built small block Chevy V8 and a pair of air-to-water intercooled 88-millimeter Magnum turbochargers, this heavy hauler is capable of churning out 1,500hp. Shifting duties are handled with a Powerglide transmission and the engine is burning alcohol. The eighth-mile No Prep racing action begins with Hillbilly Deluxe (HD) in the left lane and a 1978 Cadillac Coupe de Ville (yes, you Read More

Twin Turbo CTS-V vs. 1000HP Supra – Street Hits

July 8th, 2019

Domestic versus Import – it just don’t get no better than that. Everything is on the line when vehicles built within the United States roll out against those built in Japan, Germany, the U.K. and all those other great nations. Tonight’s contest is just such an affair. Breaking all the rules tonight are a pair of heavily modified imports. The first is a Honda S2000 with a turbocharged 2JZ (Toyota) engine. It is capable of producing 1,200hp. Rolling out to his left is a 1,300hp Nissan GT-R, upgraded with a Boost Logic 1300 turbo system. The Honda is fast, but Read More

Street Hits – TT Audi R8 vs. Procharged Corvette Z06

July 4th, 2019

The evenings are getting warmer and that can only mean one thing; it’s time for some roll racing. Tonight, these guys are taking it to the streets (of Mexico) to see who has the fastest car from 60 mph to 150mph. Let’s go! In the first pass, we have an 1,100hp Nissan GT-R (white) rolling against a turbocharged Mustang Fastback. Both cars come out of the hole violently and it remains close throughout. Mustang FTW. Next up is a 1,000hp Toyota Supra against the same Nissan. This time the GT-R is victorious. The same GT-R hooks up with an 1,100hp Read More

7-Second Dodge Viper World Record Holder

July 4th, 2019

Bet you thought those Georgia rednecks from Vengeance Racing only wrenched on Chevy cars, huh? Well, get ready for an education. This snake holds numerous world records; mostly in the Viper category, naturally. It is adequately equipped with a stock (8.4-liter) engine block that has been reinforced. Stock? Reinforced? Who knows what it all means to a world record holder – all I know is that reinforced don’t sound stock. Neither does “big internals” but that’s their biscuit. I’ll let ‘em butter it however they like. Besides the built “stock” bottom end, there are a pair of massive turbochargers. I Read More
