New Mexico Cash Days – Big Money Street Digs

April 24th, 2018

This is street (dig) racing at its best. It is coming at you from the desert of Mexico on a perfect night when some really bad cars were on hand. This is single elimination dig racing with the top four places finishing in the money. Don’t cut the light early. Don’t cross the center-line. Get from point A to point B before the guy in the other lane and you advance to the next round. Simple right? If it were everybody would be doing it. Here are some of the competitors:   A Nissan 300ZX (800whp) 3.0-liter V6 with a Read More

2019 Corvette ZR1 – Manual vs. Auto

April 19th, 2018

The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 has had tongues flapping and chins wagging since well before its physical release, several weeks ago. The excitement is well deserved.

It can produce an astounding 755hp and 715 lb.-ft. of torque (in stock trim) and it is equipped with some of the most advanced aerodynamic features ever seen on a production automobile. This article will compare several videos in an attempt to determine whether the ZR1 equipped with the 8-speed automatic transmission is nearly a full-second quicker (in the quarter-mile) than the same Read More

The engine is built by Pete Harrell of Harrell Engine & Dyno (HED) in Mooresville, North Carolina.

All You Need is Love – Nitrous Burning Chevy Luv

April 3rd, 2018

Few things put a bigger smile on the face of a drag racer than the sight of a compact, rear-wheel drive vehicle with a massive V8 crammed under the hood. What makes it even better? When there is a bed on the back so you can haul all your stuff. Love was in the air as Kyle Buckmaster showed up to the Bounty Hunters No-Prep Grudge Nationals III with his menacing Chevrolet Luv pickup. At the risk of outing myself as an old guy, I’ll tell you that these trucks were plentiful in my hey-day. A fellow couldn’t sling a Read More

TT Dodge Viper Tames Streets

If you thought you had seen it all; this clip will ratchet your eyes open just a little bit farther. Forget about the 6-second GT-Rs and the 2500hp Lambos, the leader of this pack of snakes is a twin turbocharged Dodge Viper ACR. From the factory, it is one of the most capable track cars on earth. In its current state of modification, it is outright scary. The engine and transmission are built Read More

9-Second Camaro – Dual Power Adders

March 23rd, 2018

So, what’s a racer to do about that pesky turbo (supercharger) lag? After all, few things are more irritating than dropping the hammer and coming out of the hole like a slug; especially when you have sunk a ton of dough in a turbo or supercharger. There are ways to squash that lag and turn your sled into a rocket. If you are a turbo guy (or girl), you can add a second smaller (lower RPM) turbo. That’ll kick your tail out of the hole like scalded dog but it is pricey and can propose space challenges. A more efficient Read More
