Corvette Z06 vs. Cadillac CTS-V

May 27th, 2016

This is street (roll) racing between a modified ‘Vette and a souped-up Cadillac. Times were, when you get your sports car modified to your liking and hit the streets for some roll racing action, the last thing that you would expect is for a sedan to give you a run for your money. Well, time passes and things change; today’s high-powered sedans are pretty potent from the factory and they are easily modified. Despite the fact that this race is between a top-tier sports coupe and a luxury sedan, it is one of the closest street contests that I have Read More

South of the Border Street Battle

May 26th, 2016

This is some insane roll racing street action from down “Old Mexico” way. The action begins at 60 mph and heats way up from there. The feature car of this short clip is a stout twin turbocharged Mustang Cobra. The Snake takes on a turbocharged C5 Corvette and a 750whp Mitsubishi Evolution. Get an eyeful for yourself. The SillyBilly Terminator Cobra is equipped with a 281-cubic-inch engine and a pair of turbochargers “turned about half-way up.” Horsepower output is unknown but, as you can see from the video, it’s pretty substantial. The C5 ‘Vette is powered by a 408-cubic-inch small block Read More

Corvettes Battle on the Streets of Old Mexico

May 20th, 2016

It is a rarefied occasion when I happen across a video in which the camera car is the bully on the block. Well, this is one such video. If I had to choose a catch-phrase for this clip, it would undoubtedly be “see ya” in reference to the commentary that takes place inside the camera car. The camera ‘Vette is red. It is a C5 Z06 with a camshaft upgrade and a Vortec supercharger. Power is estimated at 664hp. The blue C7 Z06 has unknown modifications and claims 750hp. To keep things interesting, there is also a Gen V Coyote Read More

Twin-Turbo Opel Tears Up the Streets

May 17th, 2016

If you are under 50-years of age, and haven’t traveled outside of the U.S. extensively, then you have likely never seen an Opel on the street. Well, here’s your chance – and it’s a tremendous example. Street racing (even Swedish style) is interesting enough but when you add a couple of tiny power houses like these it’s downright awe inspiring! The little Opel is running an LSX (GM V8) engine with a pair of 76-millimeter turbochargers dialed-in at only 15 psi of boost. It’s churning out 1,400hp. In case you are curious; the Volvo is producing about 1,000hp using a Read More

Oklahoma Street Racing

May 12th, 2016

This video depicts a night of street racing on a deserted country road and a low-traffic interstate (down in Mexico – of course). The environment is serene but the racing action is red hot. There’s a stout Toyota Supra, a couple of high-powered Evos, a 700hp Subaru Wagon, an 850hp Mustang GT500, and the camera car is an 850hp Trail Blazer SS. This roll racing action is super-intense. The star of this video is an 1150hp Toyota Supra. It is equipped with a 3.4-liter inline 6-cylinder engine with a HeadGames cylinder head, an 88-millimeter turbocharger, Pro EFI fuel injection, and Read More

Missouri Street Digs

May 10th, 2016

Here is some premier street racing action from the show-me state. This is one insane night during Mini Cash Days that brought out some big names – like Skinnies Twin-Turbo Fox Mustang and the FR8TRAIN Trans Am. From the famous to the dark-horse no-names; these racers are giving it their all in some very competitive street racing action. There is one standout. It’s a bad Firebird with a big block Chevy (502 cid) engine and an 84-millimeter turbocharger. Of course, the FR8TRAIN is doing his thing and so is Skinny. Both of them won close races. The Farm Truck was Read More

Turbo S10 Pickup Spanks Muscle Cars

May 6th, 2016

The odds of a square-body Chevy S10 Cyclone pickup truck taking on an array of muscle cars in the standing half-mile – and winning – are pretty slim. Then again, most S10 trucks aren’t as well equipped for the task as this one. This is a family project crafted with pride by a father and his two-sons. The best weekend run for this truck was an impressive 159.4 mph. This sub-compact pickup is packing a 408-cubic-inch LS engine with a Callie’s crankshaft and stroker kit, stock cylinder heads, a camshaft upgrade, a Turbonetics 101-millimeter compressor/91-millimeter turbine, a massive 4L80E automatic Read More

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

3-Wide Street Racing – GT500 vs Corvette vs Honda

April 21st, 2016

This is straight-up, 3-wide street racing action between a couple of power house sports cars and a Honda. First, the big dogs line-up for some 60mph roll racing. After the GT500 gets through skinning the ‘Vette, the Chevy takes out his pent-up aggression on the Honda in progress. 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

Twin Turbo Chevy S10 – No Prep Mayhem

April 19th, 2016

Striving for traction and track position are some of the hurdles that No-Prep racers must clear. With no track prep, no electronic timers, and no excuses – No Prep Racing is an ‘old school’ racing concept that is garnering a humongous following among enthusiasts of all ages. If you enjoy highly-competitive, head-to-head drag racing with limited classifications, then No Prep is right for you. This S10 (called Cornfed 2.0 and equipped with a twin-turbocharged LSX engine) runs in one of the two classifications of most No Prep events – Small Tire. Today the Small Tire class is burgeoning with competition Read More
