Villain – 1000HP Street Dominator Chevelle SS

March 20th, 2019

When money is no object, and you simply must have the baddest car on the street, a frame-off resto-mod will usually fill the ticket. This 1970 Chevelle certainly will. Not a bad car when it came to Detroit Speed, the owner was just yearning for a bit more from this old girl. She already had a potent 502 cubic-inch Chevy Performance big block. The car looked acceptable enough but – WOW! – when an expert begins to inspect and configure; things can get real expensive, real quick. After a frame upgrade, a roll cage, new floor panels, and new wheel Read More

TX2K19 Import Showcase – Roll Hits and Digs

March 18th, 2019

With a chill in the air and gray skies overhead, Day 2 of TX2K15 is underway with entries from Underground Racing, ETS (including Gidi in his Alpha G), AMS, and other heavy hitters on-hand. With roll racing and digs on the slate, looks like it’s going to be a long one. Walking a fine line between cooler temperatures (along with the denser air that they bring) and frozen precipitation, these competitors are torn between the possibility of setting a new World Record and uncontrollably veering into the wall. Cooler, denser air – fun. Slippery, wet drag strip – not fun. Read More

March 10th, 2019

Greetings drag racing fans. Join me as this clip takes us back to the Thunder Valley Raceway Park in Noble, Oklahoma for Outlaw Armageddon. This event is being billed as the World Series of No Prep but can it live up to the hype? Take a look. Fresh off three consecutive wins, Tony V and his Gen IV Camaro are looking to grab the $25,000 grand prize in the Small Tire Class. Despite finishing up a new setup only about a month prior to this season, Tony and crew think they can make it four in a row. Safe to Read More

200 MPH Vengeance Corvette

March 7th, 2019

Fast Chevrolet Corvette coupes and Vengeance Racing (Cumming, Georgia) seem to go together like peanut butter and strawberry preserves. Every time we see these guys, they have a trailer loaded with a half-dozen (or so) of the most capable LS powered sports cars imaginable. Today is special for Ron and the crew from Vengeance. They are all set to surprise friend and long-time customer Chuck beyond his wildest dreams. With about 2-years on his Novi 2200 and 7.0-liter LSX setup, Chuck brought his Corvette in needing a refresh on the engine with some more potent upgrades to follow (when the Read More

Vlad’s Journey – A 1300HP Supra Story

March 3rd, 2019

First things first; this is a beautiful car. As far as imports go – this is a real find. It is a 1998 Toyota Supra Quicksilver Twin Turbo Edition. This is a rare car that has been carefully and skillfully renovated/upgraded in stages. Car owner, Vlad, takes you through these stages and shares some of his thoughts along his journey. The initial round of modifications came as fuel system upgrades and included: Injector Dynamics (ID) 1,000cc fuel injectors in an RMR (Ross Machine Racing) fuel rail with an AEM fuel pressure regulator. The pump is an AEM unit (380-liters per Read More

1200WHP Ford GT vs 1200WHP Viper – Texas Street Hits

March 1st, 2019

Well, it’s flooding down in Texas – flooding high-end roll racers, that is. Almost time for TX2K19 and it seems that the serious competitors are in town early. The track isn’t available at this hour, but these guys won’t let that stop them. They’re on a mission for street hits so they jump across the southern border into Mexico. Take a gander. In the first flight, the camera car is a 780whp Supra. The first race is between a 900whp ZR1 Corvette and a 1,000whp (black) Supra. Corvette takes the hit and wins it. Next up is a 915whp Corvette Read More

Kansas City Cash Days Times Two

February 28th, 2019

Kansas City is about more than just barbeque. These guys (and gals) are into some serious dig racing on the rural streets. We managed to locate two separate street racing venues (after we got to Mexico) and hook up with some local racers willing to put it all on the line for a cash pot. First up is the Small Tire Cash Days with Mini Big Tire Cash Days to follow. Soak it up. Small Tire Round One and the first race is between a turbocharged big block Chevy powered Fox Body in need of a spring cleaning and a Read More

Qatar Streets – Lamborghini vs. Porsche and Nissan

February 22nd, 2019

In this clip, we get the opportunity to meet a group of young men charged with breaking-in a brand-new system of highways – some of which have never even been driven. Six lanes of empty interstate are a roll racers dream and some of the most elite entries imaginable have turned up to compete in head-to-head action. Enough about highway – let’s get down to getting down. Starting out small (so to speak) we have an 1,100hp Nissan Patrol versus an 800hp Chevrolet Silverado 1500. The SUV captures the advantage and runs off into the Arabian night. Beautiful! Next up, Read More

Super Sleeper – 9-Second Chevy SS

February 20th, 2019

Nothing I like better than a really stealthy street sleeper. This 2015 Chevrolet SS has been transformed into just such a masterpiece. In all practicality, it looks stock. The only real giveaway – without opening the hood – is the drag racing rubber and the beautiful sound of the exhaust. Jeff, the owner of this capable Chevrolet sedan sleeper, sent to Australia for the unique Harrop supercharger that rests gently atop its 6.2-liter V8 perch. In addition to the Harrop (Eaton) 2650 blower, the cylinder heads and camshaft have been upgraded, along with the exhaust and the fuel system (DSX Read More

266 MPH BIG RED Camaro – Inside the Build

February 10th, 2019

As a muscle car that began as a production model Camaro Z28, this Chevy has evolved a long way into the complete racing machine you see today. BIG RED was initially modified as a Pro Touring car. After shocking the field at the legendary La Carrera Classic, in Mexico, this classic cruiser was kicked to the curb for being too much for the other Pro Touring cars (Lamborghini, Ferrari, Porsche, etc.) to handle. After all, it was “only” a 1969 Camaro. Since then, BIG RED has gone on a tear. It is currently setup for top speed airstrip (mile and Read More
