LS Powered Porsche 911 Carrera

January 21st, 2017

You’ll either love this car or you’ll hate it. To the Porsche purist, this is the ultimate slap in the face but to a street racer, this thing is music to the ear. One thing is certain – whether you love it or hate it – it is one heckuva unique build and a potential street terror. The car started life as a run of the mill 1986 Porsche Carrera RSR with an air-cooled V6 chomping away in the rear. The current owner purchased the car as a complete build from a fellow named Hal McGinnis down in the great Read More

Street Racing Digs – Sedan Shoot Out

January 20th, 2017

Hello drag racing fans and aficionados! Welcome to this contest between two high performance sedans. Allow me to say that I love the posturing and smack talking at the front of this video. I don’t know how it is where you race but in my neck of the woods there has to be a little flexing (or playing possum in some cases) and jockeying for position before you split the light. It ain’t mean or evil. It is loud but it’s just guys (and gals) letting off steam. This contest features a couple of GM products engaged in dig racing Read More

1800HP Twin Turbo Chevy S10

January 14th, 2017

Hello race fans – here’s the skinny – Flacco has got one fast Chevrolet S10 pickup. Get it? Because Flacco translates to skinny in English? No? Oh well, let’s talk No Prep. No Prep racing runs just as it sounds. There is no acetone or other chemicals that are sometimes used to clean excessive rubber from the track. Instead, these racers line up and attack the pavement in whatever state they find it. No Prep racing is as close to genuine street racing as anything that you will experience at a drag strip. Flacco’s S10 is well equipped with an Read More

Nissan 240SX – Quarter-Mile in 7.3-Seconds @ 187 MPH

January 11th, 2017

This one-of-a-kind Nissan 240SX has been dubbed the Red Rocket and is being touted as the fastest 240SX in the world. The real question that I want to ask is: Just how much of a Nissan is this Red Rocket? Don’t get it twisted – a low 7-second quarter-mile pass at 187 mph is pretty impressive under any circumstances – but does this little rear-wheel drive coupe have a big American V8 pining away under the bonnet or has it remained stock to accomplish this awe inspiring feat? The answer is…neither. Instead of taking the easy way to a low Read More

Cali Street Digs – Compton Clash

January 11th, 2017

Greetings street racing fans and welcome to one of the most historic street racing locations on the planet. The small community of Compton, (Mexico) is known worldwide for its unique cultural dynamic. It has for decades been the inspiration for motion pictures and music but there is one strip of blacktop that is easily recognizable to street racers. This video comes to us from this exact site. I especially enjoyed the way the video producer referred to the posturing and trash talking that takes place before a street race as “race negotiations.” In the hood or out – a $1,600 Read More

Street Beast Shootout – 1400WHP Viper vs 1100WHP 240SX

January 5th, 2017

Mention the words “Viper”, “GT-R”, and “street racing” to me and you will have my undivided attention. This video has all of those things and a whole lot more. Let’s get this (roll racing) party started with a contest between a 1,400whp Dodge Viper and an 8-second Nissan GT-R. The Gen V Viper and the Nisan GT-R are two of the baddest production vehicles to ever roll off an assembly line. Obviously the Viper in the video has undergone some extensive modifications; including a turbo setup. The Snake handles Godzilla easily and moves on to the next victim. You may Read More

NA Vette Crushes Half-Mile World Record

December 28th, 2016

Hello race fans and welcome to the WannaGoFast Texas 1/2-Mile Runway Shootout. Making this contest of top speed even more enjoyable for spectators this weekend is the presence of Eddie Blackwell’s 2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Eddie has come all the way from Huntsville, Alabama with the sole purpose of popping out a new world record top speed for an all-motor car in the 1/2-mile. Eddie makes consistent passes in the 180 mph range all weekend before destroying the 1/2-Mile (Naturally Aspirated) World Record on Sunday afternoon with a best top speed of 186.8771 mph. The Blackwell C5 Z06 is powered Read More

Top 10 Street Sleepers of 2016

December 23rd, 2016

There is something particularly satisfying about building a car that can perform on the street without looking like it. This is called a “street sleeper” and it has been called a motorized version of the pool hustler. This video gives us a look at 10 of the baddest and most surprising street sleepers of 2016. Check out this turbocharged Honda Civic. With a built K20 and a massive turbocharger, this sub compact is knocking off Lamborghinis on the street. The turbo Silverado looks factory but don’t press your luck with this single cab pickup. With a big turbo and a Read More

2016 North Carolina Cash Days

December 21st, 2016

This video features at least two things that I hold near and dear: street racing and the beautiful state of North Carolina. The Tar Heel State has always held a special place in my heart, with its densely wooded mountains in the west and stunning beaches in the east, but experiencing the Tail of the Dragon (on my modified Harley Davidson Road King bagger) took it to a whole different level. Between that, some wonderful white whiskey (for medicinal purposes and in moderation), and some of the friendliest folks on earth, I can’t help but go back time and time Read More

Parking Lot Drags – Small Tire

December 15th, 2016

Anyone who has ever raced in a parking can attest to the fact that it can be treacherous. This track, on this weekend, was possibly one of the most dangerous that I have ever seen. First of all, the track was an eighth-mile uphill – couldn’t find a flat place in Houston, Texas? Next, the drag strip dead-headed into a convention center. What’s up with that? Drag cars have enough problems stopping (hence the parachute) so why throw salt in the wound by restricting the landing strip to an area the width of a four-lane road? Finally, traction was nonexistent Read More
