Classic Nova Sleeper Packs Huge Punch

January 19th, 2019

This is just the kind of car that makes auto mechanics – with big forearms and grease under their nails – giggle like teenage girls. It’s the kind of car that street racers (young and old) desire to build. They talk about building and think about building, but almost never get around to building. Well, feast your eyes upon this: While I was busy thinking about building the ultimate street sleeper; Drew was busy buying it. He found a very ordinary looking 1972 Chevrolet Nova which Kurt Urban Performance has transformed it into something otherworldly and wisely snapped it up. Read More

Sketchy Vert – Trans Am Gone Twin Turbo 

January 18th, 2019

Jared and his Sketchy Vert Trans Am have been associated with midwestern street and strip racing for many years. The car was a nitrous V8 with a manual transmission and it was indeed sketchy. Jared is all grown-up and he’s got a brand-new setup in the convertible Poncho. He’s come down to Bradenton, Florida for Cleetus and Cars and I wonder if he knows what he’s gotten into? Check it out. Sketchy centers around a Texas Speed-built 408 cubic-inch LS motor with twin 70-millimeter turbochargers from Huron Speed. The Shop, Inc. is responsible for setting the Pontiac up with the Read More

White Knuckle Dodge Demon – 840+HP Stock Internals

January 15th, 2019

Greetings racing fans and welcome back to the beautiful Palm Beach International Raceway, in sunny Florida, for a running of the White Knuckle Demon. The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon was offered for a single model year and billed as the most powerful vehicle ever mass produced in the U.S. With a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 HEMI engine, the stock (4,400-pound) Demon is capable of 840hp (770lb-ft. of torque).

Stock Motor Mustang – 9-Second Quarter-Mile

January 12th, 2019

Either you love it or hate it. There is no in-between and no fence straddlers, here. “Gotta have it Green”, dragon green, lime green, pale green; it’s all VERY green when it is covering an automobile. I’ll let you decide: Pretty? Or pretty ugly? Let’s take a deeper look at this Ford, built to tame strip and street. With a manual transmission (TR6060) and a stock 5.0-liter Coyote motor with a Borg Warner S475 turbocharger (and all that entails), this Booger Green Mustang is moving on up. The car is tuned by Revolution Automotive and is running E85 fuel on Read More

Turbo Silverado vs. Supercharged Mustang – Street Hits

January 9th, 2019

Roll racing is frowned upon by some. Usually those who haven’t tried it. My heart will always be in the dig, but there is something exhilarating about hitting the interstate for some high-speed shenanigans. Boosted vehicles are ideal for roll racing because they have ample opportunity to spool-up before the racing begins at 40, 50, or 60 mph. From there, it’s pure power through 140 or 150 mph – what’s not to love? This clip features street (roll) racing between a diverse group of vehicles. There’s a Chevrolet Silverado 1500 pickup truck with a 5.3-liter engine and Garrett S480 turbocharger. Read More

10-Second Turbo Viper – Tune and Testing

January 7th, 2019

This Viper guy was caught at the Cecil County Dragway (Maryland) doing some testing and tuning during a shakeout of the mighty Mopar’s fresh upgrades. He was laying down some low 10s on 12 psi of boost. That means that this car has a lot left in it. We look forward to single digits from this beast in 2019. Even in factory trim, the Gen II Viper GTS is a formidable opponent. With its massive 8.4-liter V10 engine, short-throw manual transmission, and racing suspension, the Viper is capable of tackling the strip or track. The feature vehicle of this video Read More

Supercharged Audi R8 vs. Lamborghini Aventador

January 6th, 2019

This is a video that takes us behind the scenes. We get to see some great street (roll) racing, but we also get a chance to see a sample of the many hours of labor that are spent making these cars so fast and reliable. The shop is Race Proven Motorsports (RPM) in New Castle, Delaware and they are turning out some of the most impressive street racing GM vehicles on the planet. Production begins with a 2017 Camaro ZL1 with a manual transmission. It will undergo a dyno test to obtain stock horsepower before getting some serious modification in Read More

1956 Chevy Coupe – 6-Second Monster

January 6th, 2019

That’s correct – all metal (with the exception of the hood and trunk) – with factory glass and trim. Known as The Creamsickle, this orange Chevrolet economy coupe has posted a best quarter-mile elapsed time of 6.80-seconds @ 210 mph! Any way you slice it – that’s a whole lot of pickin’em up and puttin’em down. As previously mentioned, this is a complete car in factory trim. The fenders, doors, and even the bumpers, grille, and trim are stock GM. Translate that into HEAVY. It’s going to take a ton of horsepower to get this big body moving. Wheels are Read More

TT Lambo vs. EVO IX – Heads Up Street Hits

January 5th, 2019

Back on the streets (of Mexico, of course) with a huge wad of import power. This video features only two cars, but – wow! – what a pair! The first is a stock weight 2006 DSM EVO IX that has been thoroughly and skillfully modified (by Machines Gone Wild of Miami, Fla.) for maximum performance. It is loaded for bear with a Mivec 4G63 (2.2-liter) Stroker motor with a ported and polished cylinder head and Kelford 288 camshafts. It uses AEM Infinity engine management, tuned by Lance Toyomoto, and dual (1700cc) fuel injectors for fuel delivery. An AMS intake manifold Read More

Nasty Nitrous Fox Body vs. Procharged Camaro SS

January 5th, 2019

Buckle up racing fans! It’s time to take it to the streets (of Mexico) for some 45/50 mph roll racing hits. Featured in this clip are a trio of purpose-built muscle cars dedicated to interstate dominance. The oddball is a Fox Body Mustang. No shortage of curb appeal here, but what makes this ride truly unique is hidden beneath the bonnet. It’s packing a big punch from a 6.0-liter (LQ9) GM truck engine. The big truck mill has been upgraded with high-performance internals (fully-built), Texas Speed cylinder heads, and a 175hp shot of laughing gas. The Chevy motor is carbureted Read More
