July 15th, 2015

In what must be the equivalent of the ultimate Iron-Man competition for an elite class street racer, three drivers recently set out to conquer Rocky Mountain Race Week. This 1,200-mile test of speed and endurance rolls through the Rockies and in to Pueblo, Colorado, then they trek to Great Bend, Kansas, before heading to Kearney, Nebraska, after that they make a u-turn and the journey culminates back in Denver, Colorado. For each step of the journey, there is a full day of heads up dig racing. For at least three individual drivers, this entire trip is taken in a bad-axe, Read More

Drag Racing: 800HP AWD Jeep SRT8

July 14th, 2015

Smoke ‘em if you got ‘em – and by that I mean all four tires (at the same time). This late model Grand Cherokee lays the smack down on a twin turbocharged Cutlass, some bodacious sports cars, and several high-powered turbo diesel pickups, on his way to the finals and an overall victory. This “grocery-getter” is powered by a 6.4-liter (that’s 392-cubic-inches) HEMI with a Procharger bolted on. Total output is estimated at 800hp, but some of this guy’s opponents may argue that it is much higher. Despite the fact that it is equipped with street radials, this all-wheel-drive SUV Read More

Street Racing: Import VS. Domestic

July 3rd, 2015

There is something extra-thrilling about racing at night. As the sun fades and the moon makes its appearance, ambient temperatures ease down and racing conditions enter the realm of perfection. This video documents just such a street race, as a potent all-wheel drive import supercar clashes with a hard charging all-American rear-wheel drive muscle car. Let’s begin with the C5 Corvette. It is equipped with a specially built 418-cubic-inch V8 racing engine. In front of that sits a single Precision 8891 turbocharger, behind it a 6-speed manual transmission with a Monster Lt1-R clutch. Output is estimated loosely at 1,100+HP. The Read More

Street Racing: Supercharged Mustang vs. SRT Viper T/A

June 30th, 2015

For as long as there have been muscle cars, Ford and Dodge have been battling on the street. Smaller, lighter, small block powered Mustangs going head to head against larger, more powerful Dodges with massive big block HEMI engines, are what made street racing what it is today. This video shows a 2015 Ford Mustang GT with a blown 5.0-liter V8. The supercharger is a 2.3-liter VMP Gen2. Fuel is delivered via a Lund Racing Tuner using Injector Dynamics ID1000 fuel injectors, a stock fuel pump, and a booster.
