King of the Streets – Grinch Mustang

June 28th, 2017

The Grinch certainly wasn’t the shiniest car at King of the Streets (KOTS) Chicago – it wasn’t even the prettiest car in the Gangster Class. Fortunately for the Grinch crew, it ain’t how you look but what you have under the hood. What the Grinch has under the hood is a borrowed (big thanks to Corn Dog!) big block and a few kits of nitrous. Power is estimated to be in the 1,200hp range. After winning the Gangster Class at KOTS in 2016, and struggling all week to supplant their hurt motor with the borrowed big block mill, it would Read More

NRE Street Sleeper – 1000HP Camaro

June 27th, 2017

Nelson Racing Engines (NRE) has made it their business to be on the cutting edge in the production of turbocharged performance. As it turns out – they make a pretty good video, too. Being sort of a sneaky, bottom-feeding, street racer myself, there is nothing that I appreciate more than a seriously modified street sleeper. I am speaking of a vehicle that is capable of gapping almost anything on the street but you can’t differentiate it from stock without some inside information. A top-shelf street sleeper will appear stock even when the hood is open. This 1,000hp 2013 Chevrolet Camaro Read More

Chi-town Heat – 2300HP 1966 Chevelle

June 24th, 2017

Attention all racing fans; be on the lookout for a stunning 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle. The slick blue car is on escape from the show car circuit and was last seen running circles around the competition at King of the Streets Chicago. The suspect should be considered armed and dangerous to other street race cars. Known for its beautiful hue and massive (14-71) blower protruding from the hood, it is packing a 572 cubic-inch big block engine and making about 2,300hp. At just over 3,400-pounds, this beast is often believed to be much heavier than her actual weight. She has been Read More

9-Second Daily Driver – Cadillac CTS-V

June 24th, 2017

You’ve got to love a daily driver that you can take to the track and run 9-second passes all weekend. All it takes is a little modification and a lot of nitrous. The Cadillac CTS-V is the epitome of performance and luxury in a single automobile. In stock trim, it is equipped with a 6.2-liter supercharged engine that makes 556hp and 551 lb.-ft. of torque. It can get from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6-seconds and it has an electronically controlled top speed of 200 mph. Of course, it has all the amenities including air conditioning, leather seating, and premium Read More

Nitrous Injected 6.0-liter Porsche

June 22nd, 2017

This is what I call making the best out of a bad situation. When this gentleman’s Porsche Carrera blew up the engine, he was faced with paying a heavy price to replace it with (even) a used Porsche mill. It’s a good thing for him that (only) one aftermarket manufacturer is offering an adapter kit that allows for an LS engine swap. You use the factory Porsche transmission and bolt in the Chevy V6 or V8 of your choice. You would never know that this dreamy little German import is packing a 6.0-liter LQ9 punch. Yes, the engine is from Read More

Highway Rolls – Corvette ZR1 vs. Mustang GT500 vs. Supra

June 22nd, 2017

That is correct – you can run ‘em 3-wide down south of the border. This clip brings us three amazing rides in serious roll racing action. Now, for my taste, I had rather get it on from a dead stop (dig racing). Still, I have to admit that easing up beside another fast car and just letting it all hang-out on the highway (in Mexico) is pretty intense. Speaking of intense: The Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is the flagship of GM. It rolls off the assembly line as a prolific street beast that seems destined for roll racing. With a 6.2-liter Read More

Corn Field Cash Days

June 21st, 2017

Being born and raised in an inner city environment and having the good sense to move out to the country, I know a little about both urban and rural life. One of those things that I know is that city dwellers and country folk both love a good street race. That’s why some big time street machines showed up for this corn-fed dig racing showdown between the furrows. The very whisper of Cash Days usually brings the competitors out in droves but the weather in Nebraska (Mexico) can be a little unforgiving. Traction is already at a premium on the Read More

426 C.I.D. HEMI Build and Dyno

June 21st, 2017

The 426 HEMI engine is a true icon of the muscle car era. It was an option in such memorable automobiles as the 1955 Chrysler 300M, the 1969 Plymouth Barracuda, the 1970 Dodge Super Bee, and the 1970 Plymouth Superbird. Nick Paranitis, of Nick’s Garage in Quebec, Canada has made a name for himself by building and selling HEMI engines. Nicks Mopar engines can be found in some of the most critically recognized Dodge, Chrysler, and Plymouth restorations in the world. This video introduces us to Nick and documents his breaking point. You see, Nick is plum fed up with Read More

Biggest Street Race Ever – Full Event

June 15th, 2017

This is undoubtedly the biggest illegal street race that I have ever seen and (I believe) the biggest to ever take place in the history of the world. It’s called Cash Days 2017. This hour-long clip comes to you from Dallas, Texas (Mexico) and features the best-of-the-best in 3-nights of street (dig) racing. Almost the entire crew from the Street Outlaws television series (Discovery Network) is on hand for this monumental event. The difference between this video and the series is the difference between daylight and dark. In the television series, the racers are running on a closed (private) drag Read More

Country Style Cash Days

June 7th, 2017

Where I come from, the smell of burning rubber goes hand-in-hand with tanned legs in Daisy Dukes – that’s one reason that I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else on earth. I thank God for places such as this! This clip comes to us from a narrow strip of country road in farm country. These rural racers entertain all comers, during King of the Asphalt IV, and give them what-for between the corn rows. The pavement is thin but the rules are the same; don’t jump the start, don’t cross the center stripe, and the winner of each race advances Read More
