3-Wide Street Hits

November 7th, 2018

What do you figure all those high-powered racing machines do when the track closes and it’s time to head home? They take it to the streets (of Mexico) for some door-handle to door-handle roll racing. This is one such time and there’s an impressive field of competitors on hand, including: A Dodge Challenger (1,000HP) with a 434 cubic-inch engine and a 106-millimeter turbo. A Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 (860HP) with a Whipple 2.3-liter supercharger (upgrade) on 12 psi of boost and a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 (750HP) with an upper pulley upgrade, a high-performance camshaft, and high-performance exhaust. The Camaro and the Read More

Import vs. Domestic – Boosted Mustang vs. Lamborghini

October 31st, 2018

Check it our all you high rollers. We have some import versus domestic roll racing south of the border, down Mexico way. In a rolling version of Clash of the Titans, these modified chariots are all set to do battle on the interstate. The gloves are off as these purpose-built machines lock horns in brief but intense contests that will take these cars from 60 mph to 140 mph, before lining up to do it again. In our first dust-up, we have a Paxton Mustang running E85 fuel; rolling out against a twin turbo Lamborghini (750hp) with an EuroPower Stage Read More

Turbo Silverado Gaps Camaro ZL1

October 29th, 2018

Greetings drag racing fans! Welcome to Street Car Takeover from the Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, Georgia. A fast-moving pickup truck has captured our attention and it is gapping Camaros, old and new. As a matter of fact, the way this Silverado is coming out of the hole, it’s going to be hard for any street machine to drive around him. The feature vehicle for this clip is a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with a 5.3-liter engine (stock bottom end) and a VTR 83-milimeter turbocharger. It also has a Holley intake manifold and it is running E85 fuel. The truck is Read More

Turbo Trans Am vs. ProCharged Corvette – Street Hits

October 9th, 2018

By: Ricardo Perez This clip unfolds south if the border where representatives from the BIG 3 (GM, Ford, Dodge) are throwing down with heavily modified machines in some roll racing hits. There are also a few imports and some bikes to pretty things up a bit. It all begins with a 60 mph-roll between a 1,200hp Nissan GT-R (SPD 1400 turbo kit) and a twin turbo Cadillac CTS-V. After the lineup; the Nissan lets him have it. The Nissan rolls out against a 1,000hp (nitrous) Dodge Challenger Hellcat. Once again, the GT-R jumps out and gaps the Mopar FTW! Next, the Read More

Nitrous Corvette Z06 vs. Dodge Demon Challenger

September 30th, 2018

by: Adam Yacoby There is a battle brewing on the East Coast. Seems that a car called the Demon is building quite a reputation and Corvette owners in Lobster Land don’t like it even a little bit. Word is that some of these Demons are going to be competing at Cecil County Dragway. Maybe – just maybe – some of these ‘Vette owners will show up, as well. Let’s have a look. Sure enough, there’s a pretty blue Chevy Corvette now. The C6 Z06 is equipped with a stock bottom end LS7 (7.0-liter V8). On top are a set of Read More

Supercharged Vette vs. Nissan GT-R – Denver Street Hits

September 28th, 2018

Taking it to the streets of the Mile-High City (Mexico) with a gaggle of four-digit street brawlers is the theme of this clip. The star the opening scene? One beefed-up Corvette with a Whipple supercharger and a kit (or two) of nitrous. It’s also our camera car for this segment. On the first hit, the C7 takes on a Nissan GT-R with unknown mods. The Chevy is way more than Godzilla can handle. After thumping the GT-R, the ‘Vette takes victories from another C7, a Mustang, and a Hellcat. Just another night at the office for a Whipple Corvette on Read More

POV Ride Along – 750HP Cadillac CTS-V

September 7th, 2018

Hello drag racing fans. Get in, buckle up, and hold on. You are on-board what is being billed as the ultimate grocery-getter. It is a stock-motor 2009 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan and (as you are about to see) it is mind-numbing from the passenger seat. Under the hood is a stock (supercharged) 6.2-liter V8 with a set of LSA cylinder heads and ARP fasteners. The Lingenfelter supercharger has undergone an extensive porting process and both supercharger drive pullies have been upgraded (oversized). The car has been enhanced with a full accoutrement of bolt-ons (including a 102-millimeter throttle body) and tuned by Read More

All-Motor LS3 Swapped RX7 – Street Hits

August 30th, 2018

Alright street racing enthusiasts; who remembers cramming big V8 engines between the fenders of a tiny Chevy Vega, Opel, or Mustang II? Those were the days. We could build a 5.7-liter Chevrolet engine (four-bolt mains) that could hang with anything on the street (roll and dig). The Vega, Opel, and Mustang II have all gone away. That leaves us with the heavier Camaro/Trans Am, Mustang, W-Body, and G-Body. Luckily, these days we have access to better power-adders – at unbelievable prices – than we could’ve ever imagined in those days. Nevertheless, it would be great if a blue-collar guy could Read More
