BIG RED Camaro Goes 216 MPH in Standing Half-Mile

September 23rd, 2021

The Original BIG RED Camaro is famous for taking on almost every kind of racing imaginable. From No Prep Drag Racing to Hill Climbing, this guy has done it all in his 1967 Chevy Camaro. He’s even gone 266 mph on the Bonneville Salt Flats – but let’s address the elephant on the room. Wait a minute! That ain’t no elephant. It’s a giant wing on the back of the BIG RED Camaro (biggest wing that I’ve ever seen). Get this: It’s functional too. As one might expect, the BIG RED Camaro uses a variety of engines according to the Read More

1100HP Diesel Chevy C-10 Shortbed Takes on Drag Week

September 17th, 2021

As the Mecca of drag racing enthusiasts, Hot Rod Drag Week attracts some of the most capable straight-line machines in the world. This video focuses on some of those vehicles. Day 4 of Drag Week finds us looking at a diesel powered 1980 Chevrolet C-10 shortbed pickup with a pair of small turbochargers. This truck is rolling coal like it’s going out of style and leaving a ton of rubber on the track during his burnouts. The sawed-off truck cuts a clean light and totes the front out past the tree. He leaves a thick cloud of black smoke behind Read More

1400HP Nissan GT-R vs. 1370HP Ford Mustang – Drag Race

September 14th, 2021

Here we go again! This is a time-honored rivalry between a sports car from Japan and some Detroit muscle from the good old USA. Both these cars are twin turbocharged, and both are capable of making approximately 1400WHP. That’s where the similarities end. For instance, one is a V8 and the other is a V6. One is all-wheel drive and the other is rear-wheel drive. One is a purpose-built roll racer and the other is a drag car. With all their differences, this should be an interesting series of races. Let’s begin with the import. The 2017 Nissan GT-R is Read More

Challenger Hellcat Redeye vs Mustang GT500 – Street Hits

September 9th, 2021

It’s about to get real up in here! We have a Dodge Challenger Hellcat Widebody (with a few mods) taking on a Ford Mustang GT500 in some roll racing hits on the streets (of Mexico). Let’s get to it. The Widebody Redeye comes equipped with a 797hp 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V8. Car owner Nate has added a Legmaker cold air intake and a set of super-sticky Nitto NT 555 R2 tires on the rear. He has also deleted the rear seat and today he’s looking to whip up on a Mustang. On the other hand, the mustang GT500 is powered Read More

All-Motor 1969 Chevrolet Camaro – 716HP 572 C.I.D. Big Block

September 9th, 2021

Big thanks to Shawn at Autotopia for bringing us this outstanding garage-built 1969 Camaro. For car owner Omar this has been a labor of love. He regularly drives the car on the street and takes it to the drag strip occasionally. This is a special build and Omar is going to explain why. The center piece is the massive 572 cubic-inch engine (cast iron block with aluminum cylinder heads). Exhaust is Hooker Super Competition headers running into Magnaflow 3-inch pipes/mufflers. It dumps in front of the rear axles. The brake setup is Wilwood disc on all four corners. The tire/wheel Read More

You gotta love a car that looks grandma and runs like a gazelle. This 2017 Holden Commodore (Chevrolet SS) provides the perfect platform to build a street stunner. Let’s kick the tires on this sedan and see what makes it stand out from the crowd. The 2017 Commodore rolled off the assembly line with a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine rated at 415hp and 415 lb.-ft. of torque. The big V8 in this unit is mated to a 6-speed Tremec manual transmission. Car owner Joe has built on the stock foundation by sending the supercharger out for some expert porting at Read More

Ice Cream Cruise – 1320 Video vs Sheepy Race and Underground Racing

September 2nd, 2021

So, Kyle (1320 Video) turned up at the Ice Cream Cruise in Iowa (I-29 Dragway/Raceway Park of the Midlands) with his AMS built twin turbo Audi R8 V10 Plus. He was looking to do some roll racing and see how his Audi stacked up against serious competition from Sheepy Race and Underground Racing. Fortunately for Kyle, his buddy Jeremy was in attendance with his Sheepy Race built Lamborghini Huracan Performante. These two cars are almost identical from a performance standpoint. Jeremy has a slight advantage in weight with Kyle’s car tipping the scale approximately 600-pounds heavier than Jeremy’s. There are Read More

1300HP Twin Turbo Charger Hellcat Goes Rounds at Dodge Roadkill Night

September 1st, 2021

We have seen big Wes Champlin in his diesel-powered Mustang and it was impressive. This video introduces us to another of Wes’ creations. It is a twin turbocharged Dodge Charger Hellcat sedan. No supercharger delete in this kitty. Wes simply added a Hellion twin turbo (64 mm) kit to the existing supercharger for a significant increase in boost and a whole lot of fun. Of course, more boost (air) requires more fuel. That’s what the Walbro triple pump fuel delivery system accomplishes. As you may have noticed, the interior has been gutted to decrease weight and Wes has added a Read More

August 31st, 2021

You boys (and girls) like Mexico? I sure hope so because we are about to dip down south for a grudge match between a twin turbocharged Ford F-150 pickup and a Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 with straight-piped exhaust. Turbocharged versus supercharged? It’s about to get real when the rubber meets the road. The Ford F-150 Super Snake comes from the Shelby plant with your choice of either a naturally aspirated or supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine. The one began life as a N/A truck an had a Helion twin turbo setup added. Precision wastegates and blowoff valves, along with a Hellhorse fuel Read More

Real Street 2000HP Mustang – 7-Second Twin Turbo Coyote

August 25th, 2021

Greetings fellow drag racing fans. Meet Brett Lasala (Real Street Performance) and his booger green Ford Mustang. Brett once held the World Record for a Mustang with a 6R80 6-speed automatic transmission (in the quarter-mile). Although he has recently moved on to a Powerglide, his elapsed times and trap speeds have not suffered (an extra turbocharger helps too). Let’s kick the tires on this pony car and see what makes it tick. When you get past the offensive green hue, this Mustang has a pharmaceutically clean engine bay. It features a 5.0-liter Coyote engine built by Fast Forward Racing. Forcing Read More
