Street Racing: NOS/Supercharged Camaro ZL1 vs. Viper T/A

May 29th, 2015

Check out this contest of speed that begins as a 60 mph rolling race and morphs into a Snake show. With advertised horsepower ratings being a little “flexible” where street racers are concerned, it should come as no surprise when a 632HP car overcomes a 750HP car on an apparently deserted stretch of highway. That is the case in this video from That Racing Channel. The Camaro appears to gain the early edge but the Viper is having none of it; coming back to take the victory in the end. We neither condone or encourage racing on public streets. The Read More

Woman Runs 10-Second 1/4-Mile Passes in Stock 2015 Corvette Z06

May 28th, 2015

A pretty blonde woman in a sports car can be a real head-turner. The “head-spinning” is compounded when the sports car is a 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. This video, recorded at Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison, Illinois, yields several 10-second passes by the bone-stock Z06 at speeds in excess of 125 mph. The best recorded pass is 10.867-seconds @ 127.62 mph. If she gets “tree’d-up” just a little, she should be able to lay down some low 10-second efforts. The 2015 ‘Vette Z06 (this one is nicknamed “Superman” by the owner/operator) is a rear-wheel driven American supercar powered by a Read More

1,000HP Air Force Won Mustang Wins Three Consecutive No Prep Events

May 25th, 2015

If you want to see some good head-to-head racing action, without all of the lights and timers, then you want to see some “No Prep” drag racing. This is just two cars, two drivers, two pit crews, and a quarter-mile of straight, flat blacktop. It seems that owner/driver Shayne Ward and the Air Force Won team have found the groove in the “small tire” class, winning three major 2015 events in a row (Kansas Dragway, Northstar Dragway, and Texas Dragway). A Morgan & Sons small-block (388 c.i.d.) Ford racing engine, Powerglide transmission, and Ford 8.8-inch rear differential all combine to Read More

700HP Honda Prelude Runs Rampant on the Streets of Texas

May 21st, 2015

Take one look at this Honda, with its extra-large front drive tire and deep throaty rumble, and you realize that this is not your little sister’s Prelude. Dubbed the “V8 Killer”, this four-cylinder powered import is living up to its moniker. The owner/operator lists a 427 equipped Corvette with nitrous as his most memorable V8 conquest. This clip from the BOOSTED NIGHTS – Texas Streets DVD (from 1320 videos) shows the souped-up Prelude,  with a H22 2.0-liter engine and Precision 6266 turbocharger, taking on a 700HP 2JZ Honda S2000, a 730HP Pontiac Trans Am, and a 850HP Corvette SC. The Read More

Lamborghini Huracan vs. Dodge SRT Viper T/A

May 20th, 2015

Two things about the Bay area: it is very windy there most of the time and they know how to host a spectacular supercar event. The Bay Area Racing Channel presents this awesome video (if you are a Lamborghini fan) of a Huracan absolutely annihilating a SRT Viper T/A. In all fairness the Viper never seems to gain traction in the right lane, but that is all part of drag racing, right? Despite similar horsepower ratings between the two cars (610 for the Huracan and 640 for the Viper), the Lambo appears to dominate this contest. Potential advantages for the Read More

Super Diesel Dyno and Drag Racing

May 14th, 2015

The Super Diesel Shootout, presented by Shell, features some of the most powerful diesel powered light-duty trucks on the planet. There is even a diesel powered top fuel dragster. The Overkill single-cab Chevrolet Silverado in this video not only made a 9.47-second pass @ 145.37 mph but also posted a high-water mark of 1,700-horsepower and 2,500 lb.-ft. of torque on the dyno – that’s right, 2,500.

Corvette ZR1 LPE vs Viper SRT10 Supercharged

May 13th, 2015

This is a heads-up contest between two of the quickest American supercars of the modern era (ever). In the right lane, the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is legendary in its own right but add to it a performance package from Lingenfelter Performance Engineering (LPE) and you have a beast of a car, on the dragstrip or on the road course. Now, take a look in the left lane. There you will see a legendary Dodge Viper SRT10, with supercharged forced air induction for added horsepower. Despite having two fewer cylinders than the Viper, the ‘Vette out muscles the competition in this Read More

2006 Z06 Vette Makes 7-Second 1/4-Mile Pass

May 12th, 2015

Redline Motorsports, Pompano Beach, Florida, is turning out some pretty incredible hot rods. One of the best is this 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 owned by Howard Tanner. Although track conditions were not ideal on this particular evening, Tanner managed to lay down a 7.98-second 1/4-mile pass at 179.35 mph on only 10-pounds of boost. This ‘Vette is packing a 432-cubic inch iron block Redline Motorsports race engine with a forged steel crankshaft, connecting rods, and forged aluminum pistons. A pair of Precision 62/66 billet wheel ball bearing turbochargers provide the forced air induction and help the engine to produce in Read More

2016 Dodge Viper ACR – The Fastest Viper Ever

May 8th, 2015

The introduction of the 2016 Dodge Viper ACR (for American Club Racer) brings with it the promise of unrivaled performance. Though not exactly a straight line dragster, the ACR will be a beast on the road course. A six-foot dual element adjustable rear wing, multiple dive planes, a detachable front splitter extension, removable hood louvers, and a rear underbody diffuser provide supreme aerodynamic properties and optimum downforce at the 177 mph top speed. Specially designed Kumho Ecsta V720 tires in massive 295/25R19 (front) and 355/30R19 (rear) and 10-way adjustable Bilstein shocks yield the stickiness in the corners. The familiar 8.4-liter Read More
