Tesla P100D vs. Dodge Challenger Hellcat – Street Car Takeover

May 20th, 2019

Hello racing fans and welcome back to Thunder Valley at Bristol Dragway in beautiful Bristol, Tennessee. Our focal car today is a familiar one to most YouTubers. It is a Tesla P100D that has been whipping muscle cars all over the country. With all-electric power, this thing blasts out of the hole like a rocket and posts very consistent elapsed times. This makes the Tesla ideal for Index Racing. Unlike conventional drag racing, in which a competitor gets down the track as quickly as possible, Index Racing is the practice of selecting a time just slower than your fastest ever Read More

Greetings racing fans and welcome to Street Car Takeover, coming to you from Bristol Dragway in Bristol, TN. Featured in the Small Tire Street Racer Class is this pristine ’67 Ford Fairlane with a modular engine and a pair of power adders.

Street Racing Cali-Style – Roll and Dig

May 13th, 2019

Let’s head to Northern California (Mexico) – where the beaches are warm and the nights are cool – for some street racing action. On hand for two sessions of racing are all types of power-adders, numerous makes, and multiple setups. There are supercharged, turbocharged, naturally aspirated, and nitrous enhanced vehicles from the U.S. and abroad. Here we go! The morning session is focused solely on dig racing. The first contest is between a C6 Corvette (408 cubic-inch motor, ProCharger, nitrous – 930hp) and a naturally aspirated Chevy Camaro Z28. Both cars cut the light precisely and the Camaro totes the Read More

Turbo Vette – 2500HP Brute

May 10th, 2019

It’s Street Car Takeover at Thunder Valley and our feature car for this clip is a real bruiser. With a 460 cubic-inch motor and a 118-millimeter turbocharger, this potent Chevy is expected to rule the field if he can get all those ponies to the pavement successfully. In addition to the big LSx engine and turbo, this car has Kook’s stainless exhaust headers, a dry-sump oiling system, and it has been swapped to a solid rear axle setup. Thompson Motorsports built the car, and this is only the fifth or sixth outing. When these guys get the bugs worked out, Read More

CTS-V vs. Mustang and Corvette – Street Hits

May 4th, 2019

As the summer evenings grow warmer and the risk of precipitation is reduced, the sounds of high-performance, interstate devouring, roll race cars can be heard. The late evening and early morning hours, when traffic is virtually non-existent, are prime-time for rolling these purpose-built machines onto the highway (of Mexico) for competition. Many heavily modified roll racers have showed up for this evening of fun. There is a Corvette C7 with a camshaft upgrade, a V-7 YSI Supercharger by Vortech, and a methanol injection. A 1,000hp Nissan GT-R and another (980hp) ‘Vette with an LSx engine and a YSI blower. This Read More

9-Second C7 ZR1 – Stock Motor Bolt-On Record Holder

May 2nd, 2019

At the risk of dating myself, I will tell you that the release of the movie “Corvette Summer” found a teenage version of myself in the local cinema; popcorn and soft drink in hand. The fact that actors played parts in the cult classic was of no consequence to me. The radically customized Corvette was the star and I shall never forget her. The ZR1 featured in this clip, while lacking the insane body mods, makes me think of a modernized version of the Corvette Summer car. Coming at you from Street Car Takeover and being touted as the World Read More

Texas Rattlesnake – Heir to the Throne of No-Prep?

May 1st, 2019

Greetings racing fans and welcome to Bounty Hunters No-Prep Grudge Nationals IV. Meet Ronnie Hobbs and his Canary Yellow Chevrolet S10; known as the Texas Rattlesnake. This impressive reptile is away on her maiden voyage and running in the Big Tire Class. She’s packing a serious punch from a 564 cubic-inch Brad Anderson Enterprises (BAE) mill, topped off with a pair of 98-millimeter Precision turbochargers. Major power output capacity is the result – to the tune of approximately 3,000hp! As with any fresh build, this truck is working through the bugs, but is exceptionally well-built and no expense has been Read More

Scott Chevy II – More Blower than Engine

April 30th, 2019

Running in the True Street Class, the Carl Scott Honey Badger Chevy II is equipped with a 632-cube Troy Scott Racing engine. The “small shaft” motor was initially installed in a sand crawler but made too much torque. Sounds like the perfect fit for a No-Prep monster! The true eye-catcher is a blower that has more cubic inches poking out of the hood than most cars have under the hood. The Honey Badger features a Whipple 8.3-liter supercharger bolted to the massive engine. After a successful Round 1, the Honey Badger galded a snout-bearing in the Whipple. In this environment, Read More

LS7 Swapped Gen III Camaro IROC-Z

April 24th, 2019

Hello race fans. Meet Bruce, with Hawks Motorsports and (customer) Brad’s unique 1987 Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z. With less than 10k on the odometer, Brad decided to do something special with his slug of a Gen III Camaro. He dropped it by Hawks Motorsports (Easley, S.C.) for a huge dose of TLC. Hawks decided to integrate the slo-poke IROC-Z with a much faster 2015 Gen VI Chevrolet Camaro Z28. After the engine bay was spruced up with a little clear-coat (Kolorworks); out came the meager 5.0-liter “pollution solution” V8 and the mighty LS7 (7.0-liter) all-aluminum V8 took its place. Wizard Cooling Read More
