St. Louis Street Car Takeover

December 21st, 2015

If you like heads up dig racing, then you’ll love this video. All of the entries in this event had to complete a mandatory 50-mile cruise through St. Louis to prove their street worthiness. It focuses on a turbocharged Foxbody Mustang as it makes its way through a field of elite level competitors. Rich Frost’s Mustang comes in well heeled with a 5.7-liter small block Ford engine and an 82-millimeter turbocharger. The combination is good for 1,200hp. He battles some pretty stiff competition, including the Beater Bomb, the Crusty Nova, an 1,100hp GT-R, a 1,000hp turbocharged C1500, and a 1,200+hp Read More

Do you like super-competitive heads-up dig racing? If the answer is yes, then you sure don’t want to miss this video.

$4000 Quarter-Mile Street Race

December 15th, 2015

Big Block with big tires versus small block with small tires; think you know which one will win? Both cars are radically modified and both are running nitrous but which one will take bragging rights in the 1/4-mile? We have a 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air that has been tubbed out and fitted with a massive set of drag racing slicks doing battle with a mid-eighties Malibu wagon in some heads-up 1/4 and 1/8-mile racing for some serious money. The Malibu seems to have the advantage early on in the 1/4-mile race but the big box Chevy comes back near the Read More

Texas Dig Racing – Taking it to the Streets

December 14th, 2015

If you want to experience real fun, try stepping out for a night of street racing down “Mexico” way. Some of the baddest cars in the west showed up for a full night of racing. The Mistress twin turbocharged Chevy II rolled out and so did Barefoot Ronnie (from Discovery Channel’s Street Outlaws series) in his beautiful Yenko Nova. The atmosphere was electric and the racing was amazing as these competitors were anxious to square-off with whatever was in the next lane. There is a LSX 6.0-liter powered Mustang with an 80-millimeter turbo and a dual shot of methanol, a Read More

Import vs Domestic – NighTTmare Mustang and 1100HP GT-R

December 7th, 2015

If there is anything that makes racing more fun it’s lining up against an import. The ongoing battle between modified imports and home-grown hot rods has been raging longer than radial tires have been standard equipment and it is more fierce than ever. With today’s more powerful factory cars, the most competitive racing between imports and domestics may be yet to come. Here is a prime example: The NighTTmare Mustang Coyote is running a 5.0-liter MPR built engine with a beefed up 6R80 transmission and a pair of Gen2 6466 turbochargers (Hellion Kit). It has posted a best 1/4-mile time Read More

Launch Mode Testing on Tesla P90D Ludicrous

December 5th, 2015
