Atomic Fusion Vette Makes 6-Second Pass at 220MPH

November 27th, 2015

Mark Carlyle is tearing up the record books with his beautiful burnt orange twin-turbo Corvette, called Atomic Fusion. This video shows him crushing it during the Import vs. Domestic World Cup Finals at the Maryland International Raceway. He also holds the world’s record for the LSX Drag Radial 1/4-Mile Class. Powering the stylish Corvette is an all aluminum 7.0-liter Chevy small block with GRP, Ross, and Callie’s internals and All-Pro cylinder heads. Forced air induction is handled using a pair of Garrett GTX5518R turbochargers with Tial wastegates and blow-off valves. A Big Stuff 3 fuel management system keeps all the Read More

Head-to Head – 2015 Camaro Z28 vs. 2016 Shelby GT350R

November 27th, 2015

For as long as the term “Muscle Car” has been a part of the English language, Camaros and Mustangs have been squaring off on the black-top. Ford loyalists will quickly make you aware that the Mustang started it all in 1965. The original pony car smashed sales records and became an instant classic. Chevrolet quickly answered with a tremendously popular sports coupe (called the Camaro) for the 1967 model year. When asked what the name “Camaro” meant GM designers said, “It’s a beast that eats Mustangs” – and so the battle ensued and continues until this day. Check it out Read More

Twin-Turbo 5.3-liter Nova Runs 8-Second Quarter-Mile

November 24th, 2015

Nathan Shaw of Lakeville, Minnesota has built himself a great little street/strip car. It has a dandy paint job that appears black under certain light conditions and green in others. The car is a 1971 Chevrolet Nova and it was on display during One Guy’s Garage Drag Week; more importantly, he laid down an 8.63 1/4-mile pass @ 157.91 mph. Nathan’s Nova is well equipped with an all-aluminum 2008 5.3-liter Chevy block with Wiseco pistons, Callie’s connecting rods, a stock crankshaft, ARP hardware, and TFS 220 cylinder heads. Air induction is of the forced variety and features a pair of Read More

Mutant Unicorn ‘Vette Makes 2400HP

November 16th, 2015

Hold on to your hats fellas! This Chevrolet Corvette mutation is gobbling up the competition like a pig eats corn. Originally built for street racing, this beast is still trying to gain some traction in the roll racing game but once he gets the handling issues sorted, we look for 200 mph+ closed airstrip passes at will. The guys at D3 Performance Engineering have really outdone themselves with this monster. It features a LME (Late Model Engines) built 414-cubic-inch LS based engine with a pair of 88-millimeter turbochargers sticking out of the hood. With Pro Fuel Injection, C127 MoTech instrumentation, a Read More

Trailer Trash LS Malibu Runs 8.90 Quarter-Mile

November 4th, 2015

Building a drag car on a budget ain’t pretty. Building a turbocharged drag car on a budget can get downright ugly. This Malibu may be ugly but the time slips keep getting prettier with each pass. Sure the paint job is a mess, the wheels are mismatched, and the interior is ratty but this Chevy managed to dive down into the eights, putting up an 8.90-second 1/4-mile pass at 150.8 mph. The engine is a stock Chevrolet 5.3-liter LS with a stock crankshaft and cylinder heads. It does have upgraded connecting rods, wrist pins, and pistons. A Borg Warner 88-millimeter Read More

Turbo Mustang vs Supercharged Vette Street Racing

November 2nd, 2015

This street battle not only encompasses a time honored tradition between Ford AND Chevy but also concerns players from two distinctively different forced air induction camps. The popular Ford Mustang Boss edition is equipped with a bullet proof stock 5.0-liter V8 engine with upgraded valvetrain components and an EDP 7675 turbocharger. The Corvette uses a supercharger in conjunction with a stock 6.2-liter V8 with upgraded cylinder heads, camshaft, and a set of long tube exhaust headers. The Ford claims 900hp and the Vette boasts 800hp. This looks like 60 mph roll racing and the Chevy gets the jump on the Read More

Street Racing – New Mexico Style

October 23rd, 2015

This video is over 6-minutes of heads-up dig (and roll) racing on the streets of New Mexico. All the likely suspects are present and the action is “muy caliente”. Here are some of the highlights from racing into the New Mexico night. A 740hp 2004 Subaru WRX STi with a Precision 6466 turbocharger destroys a 600hp WRX STi. The Terminator Mustang Cobra takes apart a 700hp all-wheel drive Honda Civic, a 400hp Dodge Neon, and gives a 750hp Mitsubishi Evo a good run for his money. A 600hp twin turbocharged Infiniti G35 goes against a 630hp Cadillac CTS-V and a Read More

Taking it to the Streets Camaro LS1

October 20th, 2015

With only exhaust headers, a cold air intake, and a slight camshaft upgrade, this 2002 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 LS1 is spanking some serious arse on the streets of a well known South American country. Rapid acceleration and smooth shifts help to propel this bad bowtie to victories against some pretty impressive competition. As night falls south of the border, the street racing heats up. The first challenger is an LS3 powered C6 Grand Sport. The Z28 makes quick work of this guy and moves on to the evening’s next victim. The next contest is with a Chrysler 300 SRT8 and Read More

Airstrip Attack Corvette Z06 vs Mustang Shelby GT500

October 15th, 2015

In this epic battle that is nearly as old as high-performance cars themselves, a Chevrolet and a Ford line up and go head-to-head. This modern day affair features a high-flying Chevrolet C6 Corvette Z06 and a top-of-the-line 2014 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. The scene is set on a closed airstrip at the New Coalinga Municipal Airport in Coalinga, California during the ShiftS3ctor Airstrip Attack 8 event. It’s half-mile dig racing at its best between two prime time nearly stock hot rods. The Mustang is bone stock but the Shelby GT500 package, with a 662hp 5.8-liter supercharged DOHC V8 and manual Read More

2000HP Texas Mile Corvette Z06

October 7th, 2015

This video is brought to us courtesy of KP Racing in Houston, Texas. It features Kelly Bise’s Chevrolet Corvette Z06 during dyno testing. In factory trim the Z06 is legendary by any standard but this little cream-puff is extraordinary in its own right. With a 427-cubic-inch Chevrolet LS engine, twin Pro-Mod 88-millimeter turbochargers, a 300-shot of nitrous, and a highly modified T56 transmission (with a custom-built 4-disc carbon-fiber clutch), Kelly has ambitions of claiming the Corvette record later this year during the Texas Mile event. If everything goes as planned, this car that is built specifically for the standing mile, could Read More
