Street Racing: Import VS. Domestic

July 3rd, 2015

There is something extra-thrilling about racing at night. As the sun fades and the moon makes its appearance, ambient temperatures ease down and racing conditions enter the realm of perfection. This video documents just such a street race, as a potent all-wheel drive import supercar clashes with a hard charging all-American rear-wheel drive muscle car. Let’s begin with the C5 Corvette. It is equipped with a specially built 418-cubic-inch V8 racing engine. In front of that sits a single Precision 8891 turbocharger, behind it a 6-speed manual transmission with a Monster Lt1-R clutch. Output is estimated loosely at 1,100+HP. The Read More

Baddest Pickups on the Planet: HPT Shootout 2015

July 2nd, 2015

Can you imagine turning out a 6.5-second quarter mile at 229 mph in a farm truck? What about busting 100 mph in the eighth mile with your camper shell door opening and slamming all the way? Well, that is just what this rowdy bunch of speed junkies live for. They are gathered here, at the Royal Purple Raceway in Houston, Texas, to prove that they have the baddest pickup trucks on the planet. It is Ford against Chevrolet, old against new, and full-size against compact, as these skilled race teams put it all n the line and let it all Read More

Street Racing: Corvette Chaos

July 1st, 2015

Who brings their car to a street race on a trailer? Someone who has come from one state away to take your cookies – that’s who. This video brings you a couple of highly modified late model (a 2001 and a 2009 model) Corvettes as they square off on the streets in an epic battle of supercharger versus nitrous. The “out-of-towner” sports a 2009 Corvette Z06 with a built 408-cubic-inch LSX engine, a YSI Vortech supercharger set at 18psi, and an EFI 128 tuner. It is running E98 fuel and riding on Mickey Thompson E/T rubber wrapped around 15-inch Weld Read More

200+ MPH at 2015 Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack

June 30th, 2015

Shiny Lamborghinis, Nissan GT-Rs, Porsche 918s, Corvettes, Camaros, and other exotic street cars provided a fresh new wrinkle at the 2015 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC). This video portrays bits from this past weekends second running of the PPIHC Airstrip Attack, sponsored by the Revvolution Modified Lifestyle and Shift-S3ctor, as these awesome street machines blast down dual half-mile airstrips in a unmitigated contest of speed and driving prowess. Twin turbo was the obvious theme of the event so, of course, the Lamborghini “fleet” from Underground Racing was in attendance. The GT-R contingent was also “stretching their legs” in the Read More

3000HP TT Outlaw Mustang

June 26th, 2015

Check out this video of Ron Stang competing in some heads up action with his 10.5 Outlaw Mustang. Ron has been tearing up the world of Outlaw racing for quite a few years now and with a new engine in development it will be interesting to see what he does in the future. In this video, Ron’s 2003 ‘Stang is powered by a twin turbocharged big block Chevrolet mill making approximately 3,000hp. Ron was putting down some pretty impressive times with this setup. In 2014 he held the record ET for Quarter-Mile Outlaw with 6.79-seconds @ 214 mph. We’ll be watching Read More

2000HP GT-R vs. 2000HP Lamborghini

June 24th, 2015

Maybe you have heard of a little performance outfitter from Oberlin, Ohio, called Switzer Performance. Here is a video that depicts their flagship Goliath GT-R in head to head drag racing (and roll racing) against some pretty stout competition. Porsche, Nissan, Chevrolet, and Lamborghini all roll out to challenge Goliath. The GoPro mounted on the right front fender of the GT-R catches all the up-close action (does that hood make anyone else as nervous as it does me?) The Switzer Goliath package includes an engine and transmission rebuild, driveline and suspension upgrades, twin turbochargers, specially made manifolds and intercoolers, and Read More

Street Racing: 1951 Chevy Business Coupe

June 22nd, 2015

You have to deal with all kinds of business in this life. There is good business, bad business, dirty business, serious business – there is even monkey business – but this New Mexico based street racer is all about a different kind of business. This portly looking old car is inspired by the BEATER BOMB, but it looks one heckuva’ lot better. With the appearance of a classic cruiser and the launch of a pro-stock dragster, this ’51 Chevrolet Business Coupe is a genuine street sleeper. This ride is from an era when bumpers were made of chromed steel and Read More

Girl on Girl Action – Drag Racing That Is

June 17th, 2015

Nearly every red-blooded American male loves a good catfight; a little slap and tickle or a late night pillow fight between two beautiful women. This clip shows something even better than that. Here is some girl on girl action (blonde vs. brunette, no less) with the added attraction of some awesome automobiles travelling at high speeds. In the left lane we have Jessica (the blonde) in her stock C7 Z06 Corvette (supercharged 6.2-liter V8). This is her first time. Her first pass down the drag strip – you rascals – but she is confident in her Chevy. In the right lane Read More

3,200HP No Prep TT-Camaro

June 16th, 2015

No timers and no tree, just two competitors and their cars and 1320-feet of straight and flat blacktop – that is No Prep racing in a nutshell. Typical No Prep racers don’t roll out of the box with twin-turbochargers and 3,200 horsepower, though. Nevertheless, here is a clip that shows a monstrous 1986 Chevrolet Camaro that meets those qualifications. He wins grudge match after grudge match. Then he wins the final in the “Big-Tire Class”. It takes an experienced driver and a good crew to successfully campaign a car with this much power in a no prep event like this. Read More

C7 Z06 Vette vs. Lamborghini Huracan

June 10th, 2015

What is this? A humble Chevrolet that can hang in there with the legendary Italian supercar Lamborghini? It would seem to be the case in this video. This is a close one that takes place on an abandoned air-strip. The rear-wheel drive Z06 gets pretty “squirrely” during the warm-up pass, leading one to believe that it could have a problem against the all-wheel drive Huracan. Luckily this is a rolling race, so the hole shot is removed from the equation. The Chevy crosses the stripe first but the Lambo puts up a higher trap speed (151.4 mph to 150.4 mph). Read More
