Turbo Z28 Street and Strip Racing

May 4th, 2016

While most drag racers prefer a low-slung ride, this fourth-generation Camaro Z28 owner seems to have actually increased the height of his street sleeper with larger tires and wheels. At any rate, the 6-speed manual transmission must make this thing challenging in competitive situations. The degree of body twist exhibited during the hole-shot (dig racing) indicates that the factory suspension may be overloaded with horsepower. Lets face it – that’s the best kind of problem to have. This attractive pony car is well equipped with a late model (2006 Silverado) 5.3-liter engine with a camshaft upgrade, stronger connecting rod bolts, Read More

This black beauty Mustang GT500 has a built engine with the camshaft and cylinder heads upgraded; plus there’s a giant 4.2-liter (that’s almost as big as the 5.0-liter engine) Kenne Belle supercharger bolted on top. Horsepower is estimated at 1,000. The Corvette C6Z is equipped with a 100-shot of laughing gas and Read More

The ‘Janitor’ is an awesome looking 1968 Camaro that has undergone some upgrades for the upcoming season. The nitrous oxide injection system is out and a massive 106-millimeter turbocharger has been added instead. The worn out old small block is on the scrap heap and a fresh (Torrez Performance built) 406-cubic-inch mill with 23-degree cylinder heads has taken its place. This is a No Prep event and the Janitor is running in the small tire class. With only 15-pounds of boost applied this muscle car pulled the front up nicely and got through the 1320 in fine fashion.

Welcome to the Bounty Hunters No Prep Grudge Match from beautiful San Antonio Raceway.

930HP Shop Truck Dyno and Drag

March 16th, 2016

The crew at Ultra Blue Traction Compound has put together a shop truck that has been letting them down as of late. First, there was the ‘incident’ at the dyno. It seems that the guys were expecting to put up a four-digit number and they could only irk out 930hp. That’s still pretty impressive considering that we’re talking about a Chevrolet Silverado. Next, they rolled into Street Car Takeover Phoenix looking to put down a few 9-second passes and the best they could manage was a 10.07-second pass @ 134 mph. Look for bigger and better things from this crew Read More
