Swedish No Prep – Elite Strip Digs

February 14th, 2018

This is how they do No Prep in the land of the Scandinavians. Stockholm, Sweden is the locale for this gathering of street beasts capable of holding their own anywhere in the world. There is an LSX Opel with turbos protruding so far through the hood that the driver can barely see, a beast of a Chevy Monza – yes I said Monza – on nitrous, and a whole bevy of Camaro entries. There is a wild-looking Chevy II Nova and a 2JZ powered Volvo (Volvos are huge in Sweden). Then there’s the blown “Mustang”. This thing looks like something Read More

1000HP Trans Am – Street Rolls

February 1st, 2018

Here’s your chance to hop onboard some of the baddest street (roll) race cars in Mexico. These rides are radically modified and purpose-built for racing with a rolling start. Sheet metal? We don’t need no stinking sheet metal! Our first camera car is a turbocharged Pontiac Trans Am with a fender missing (not an inner fender either). This Poncho is running a small block Chevrolet (4.8-liter) engine with an 88-millimeter turbocharger (40 psi tonight) and a kit of nitrous. The transmission is a 4L60E. In the first race, the Trans Am rolls up on a nitrous burning Corvette (supercharged 6.2-liter) Read More

8-Second Triumph TR6

February 1st, 2018

Fast Eddie and his 1964 Triumph TR6 are among the most interesting characters you will find at Hot Rod Drag Week. Despite his frazzled hair and disheveled appearance, Fast Eddie not only tackles this challenging contest of endurance and speed but consistently turns out high 8-second elapsed times at around 150 mph. Eddie’s car is a real eye-catcher with a monsterous turbocharger protruding through the hood. It all begins with a handcrafted tube chassis underneath an extended (14-inches) TR6 body. The engine is no less interesting. With everyone else opting for the LS package, Eddie has chosen to go with Read More

Taking it to the Street – Mustang Street Rolls

January 30th, 2018

This video is taking it to the streets (of Mexico) amidst a whole herd of wild Mustangs. Our camera car for the first part of this clip is Lemons GT. It’s a 5.0-liter with a Paxton 2200 supercharger and a complete high performance exhaust system. It’s burning E85 fuel. In a classic battle between supercharged and turbocharged, the camera car rolls up beside a twin turbo 5.0 Mustang in Grabber Blue. The former has been upgraded with a pair of ON3 60-millimeter turbochargers and Injector Dynamics ID1000cc fuel injectors. It is also running on E85 fuel. After multiple hits, the Read More

GT-R vs. ZR1 and Z06 – Street Rolls

January 29th, 2018

Hello racing fans and welcome to a night of street hits under the moon and stars of beautiful Houston (Mexico). Some major street racing players have shown up for the activities on this auspicious occasion. Featured in this video are a pair of modded-out Japanese sports coupes. These cars are officially called Nissan GT-R but they are affectionately referred to as Godzilla – for understandable reasons. The Black GT-R is upgraded with a Boost Logic (BL) 1100 Kit including GT30 turbochargers. It is capable of producing 1,100hp. The White Nissan GT-R is outfitted with a Speed By Design (SBD) 1400 Read More

Street Car Takeover – 660HP TT Rail Job

January 29th, 2018

What could be more entertaining than a little Willis Jeep with a big old (twin) turbocharged V8 engine? With most of the cumbersome body eliminated, the vehicle is not only lighter but also much easier to work on. Although not the prettiest car in the lot, it does have a certain Mad Max meets Speed Racer quality that is very interesting. Let’s take a closer look. At the heart of this creation (that has been named Deathtrap) is a salvage engine that drives some other rudimentary but key components. The driving force is a 5.3-liter LM7 (GM) engine with steel Read More

Daily Driver Street Digs for Dollars

January 28th, 2018

Let’s roll out with the Daily Driver Street Racing Club for some double-elimination action on the rural routes of Mexico. These guys (and girls) are primed and ready to break off an eighth-mile piece of black top in route to claiming the cash prize and bragging rights as the quickest daily driver around. The first thing that I notice are some top tier daily driver/street racing machines. There is a Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 with its 505hp supercharged V8 and several Corvette entries. There’s  an SRT Dodge Challenger with a big old 6.4-liter HEMI engine making 485hp from the factory. There Read More

Vega Wagon – Big Block on Nitrous

January 25th, 2018

I love me some Chevy Vegas. I can remember when these beauties were everywhere – they were a dime-a-dozen. Now, you can’t find one anywhere and when one shows up at the track everyone acts like it’s something new. Personally, I prefer the Vega coupe but this guy has put together quite a package with this station wagon. At the heart of this creation is an MDR built big block Chevrolet engine. Although aged, it is holding together adequately. What makes the longevity (more than two-decades) of this massive V8 extraordinary is that there is a kit of nitrous spraying Read More

Quickest Stock (Bottom End) Pickup

January 24th, 2018

This video takes us through a world record quarter-mile pass (stock bottom end LS engine) and the ensuing tear down to prove it so. Horsepower Solutions – Team North – and friends have gone to great lengths to squeeze every bit of horsepower possible from a turbocharged (Garrett 91-millimeter) LS motor with a factory crankshaft, connecting rods and pistons.    After making a record breaking quarter-mile pass of 7.16-seconds @ 190 mph, the LS motor was removed from the pro mod style chassis and torn down to the short block (intake and exhaust manifolds removed, cylinder heads removed, and oil Read More
