Hellion Mustang vs. Nitrous Corvette – Street Rolls

January 7th, 2018

This video depicts the automotive equivalent of the Hatfields and McKoys – if a third (feuding) party were added. It is Dodge vs Chevy vs Ford; in no particular order. First up is a modified Dodge Challenger Hellcat. The Chrysler SRT Hellcat Package yields a 6.2-liter supercharged engine that has been deemed the most powerful (707hp) domestic production engine ever. The “Fat Cat” treatment adds upper and lower supercharger pulley upgrades, a cold air intake, and E85 fuel. This sweet looking Ford Mustang is no gentle pony either. This V8 powered steed has been equipped with the twin turbo Hellion Read More

BMW vs. Chevy vs. Ford vs. Nissan – Street Hits

January 7th, 2018

Greetings street racing aficionados and racing fans of every genre. Welcome to the coldest night of street racing ever documented in Mexico (maybe). You are in for a real treat with this clip as a very diverse group of cars line up for street digs and rolls. These guys (and girls) have built vehicles that are capable of firing out of the hole or dominating from the roll. Let’s check out the footage as the action heats up: Our first pair of competitors are a BMW 335i with full bolt-ons and a performance tune (running E85 fuel) against a Pontiac Read More

8-Second Quarter-Mile Chevy Silverado

January 4th, 2018

This video features a vehicle that combines two of my favorite things – a jaw-dropping quarter-mile monster and a pickup truck. Climb into the passenger seat of the Heavy Chevy and enjoy some terrific street hits as the owner/operator explains how he has built one of the baddest pickups ever. With its long wheel base and extended cab configuration, this beast is primed to tame street or strip.   The 2001 Chevrolet Silverado has been outfitted with an NPR 430 cubic-inch LSx engine. A Holley Dominator EFI system controls fuel delivery and a massive Garrett 98-millimeter GTX 5533R turbocharger is Read More

POV Street Racing – Roll and Dig

January 4th, 2018

This video is very rare. It is so skillfully produced that you get a huge dose of street racing (roll racing and dig racing) with a personal point-of-view and a Hollywood level of quality. These camera angles and locations are so realistic that you can almost smell the exhaust and feel the g-force. I doesn’t take long to realize that this is a video focused on a red Camaro (and the Camaro in general). While it is loaded with bodacious bowties that stretch the limitations of street legal transportation, there are also some pretty impressive Fords and even an import Read More

Corn Husker Dig Racing

December 29th, 2017

Those Midwestern farm boys (and girls) are at it again. They have parked the tractors and combines and thrown away the pitchforks. Now they are behind the wheels of some bad street racing iron and they have come together for a day of racing action. On hand are naturally aspirated cars, turbo cars, twin turbo cars, nitrous cars, and supercharged cars. There are plenty of Chevys and Fords; there is even a DSM and a crazy fast rotary powered Datsun (old Nissan). The one thing that all these racers have in common is their desire to take home all the Read More

AWD Civic – 7-Second Beast  

December 22nd, 2017

It’s difficult to make my mouth say that a snot green Honda hatchback is a beast but this car certainly has beastly characteristics. It comes out of the hole like a bullet and flies through the trap in the 7-second range (consistently). When you consider that it blows through the quarter-mile at approximately 190 -195 mph, it is even more impressive and hard to believe that it is a four-banger. The engine is a K20 (2.0-liter) Honda unit with a big turbocharger. The owner explains that it has dyno tested at 1,100whp but he has the boost turned up even Read More

2JZ Toyota Corolla Drops Into the Fives

December 21st, 2017

I have to admit that when I think of a 5-second quarter-mile pass or trapping 240 mph, I ain’t really associating it with a Toyota Corolla. The geniuses at Mech-Tech don’t suffer from my limited vision. These guys have taken an econo-box Toyota and transformed it into a three-quarter chassis drag car that is simply mind blowing. An inline (3.2-liter) six-cylinder Toyota engine (2JZ) is the heart of this beast. It is built by Lazcano Racing Engines. A massive turbocharger is cramming copious amounts of air into the 2JZ and Jorge Juarbe acts as driver and (Microtech Tuners) tuner of Read More

Corvette vs. Hayabusa – Street Rolls

December 19th, 2017

While I am always down for a trip to North Carolina (because it is one of the most beautiful and friendliest states in the U.S.), if you add some excellent roll racing, I am chomping at the bit to go. Only a few short years ago, cars didn’t race high-performance street bikes. The bikes were just too fast. With the recent trend towards superchargers, turbochargers, and more efficient nitrous kits, cages can hang with a few hot street bikes – providing that the two-wheelers aren’t running a power adder. As usual, the fine folks of the Tar Heel State turned Read More

Corvette ZR1 – Lambo Killer

December 15th, 2017

Colton from 714 Racing showed up at the Texas Invitational to represent his home state of California. Colton came to chew bubble gum and kick butt. It was after he had already arrived in the Lone Star state that he realized he was all out of bubble gum. So… A relatively young dude, Colton has an old school philosophy for achieving top speed. He is not one to throw aftermarket gizmos at this C6, opting instead to roll up his sleeves and remove some metal from the supercharger, intake, and cylinder heads. That’s right – he claims that precision porting Read More

King of NO PREP – Chevy S10

December 15th, 2017

Greetings drag racing enthusiasts! Allow me to introduce the King of NO PREP racing, Larry Larson and his beast of a compact pickup truck. Larry has attacked the grueling affair known as Rocky Mountain Race Week on eleven separate occasions and has never failed to complete what is possibly the most challenging test of endurance (for man and machine) in racing. Rocky Mountain Race Week consists of five days of NO PREP drag racing at four separate drag strips. It begins in Kearney, Nebraska then moves to Denver, Colorado. From Denver to Pueblo, Colorado. From Pueblo it’s over to Great Read More
