True Street 1,100HP TT GTO

July 25th, 2018

Leather reclining seats, air conditioning, carpeted floors, and full door panels; sound like a luxury sports car? How about a full roll cage, drag radials, and 1,100hp? Now, that sounds like a race car. So, what is it? Is it a street car or a race car? Turns out that Louis Crower (Yep, that Crower) has built himself a very heavy (4,000-pound) Pontiac GTO that is the best of both worlds. It all begins with a KP Racing built LS3 engine. KP integrated billet main bearing caps, half-inch main studs, and a ton of Crower internals in the bottom and Read More

Rollin’ Coal – 1200HP Chevy Duramax Diesel

July 23rd, 2018

This is a hillbilly Cadillac with  a reputation for taming supercars on the street. With 1,200hp and 2,000+ lb.-ft. of torque, many unsuspecting sports car owners have fallen into the trap set by this behemoth of a truck. Today, several more will taste the soot and feel the shame. The feature vehicle is a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado LB7 Duramax. The engine is an L&L Racing product with extra reinforcement around the main bearings. Carrillo connecting rods, SoCal Diesel pistons and fuel injectors help to beef up durability as well. The turbochargers are a setup in a compound configuration with an Read More

Rocky Mountain Race Week Winner Tina Pierce

July 19th, 2018

If pretty Tina Pierce looks familiar to you, it’s probably from Street Outlaws on the Discovery Channel. What will not be familiar  is the awesome looking new Chevrolet Colorado pickup that she is driving the thousand-or-so-miles of Rocky Mountain Race Week (RMRW). After a dramatic crash that left Tina’s previous ride in tatters, she opted to go with a big block engine and a pair of turbochargers (in the bed) of her new truck. The square-nosed Colorado provides the perfect first impression for any race truck and the rose-wine color is stunning. This is the maiden voyage for Tina’s new Read More

Cash Days – Longhorns vs. Sooners

July 18th, 2018

Texas Longhorns and Oklahoma Sooners harbor a great deal of animosity towards one another. Whether it’s in the rodeo arena or on the football gridiron, inhabitants of the Lone Star State and those of the Sooner State just seem to try harder when they are competing against each other. Today the competition turns to street racing (in Mexico of course), where fourteen of the baddest street machines in the country have gathered for a single elimination tournament called Cash Days. Seven cars from Texas and another seven from Oklahoma are set to do battle in small tire trim for a Read More

1500HP Stick Shift GTO

July 12th, 2018

This is the story of Rich and his friend Bill. The two buddies are into cars – bigtime. Rich loves the Pontiac GTO and Bill had a thing for the Ford Fairlane 500.

The transmission is a Tremec Read More

8-Flat AWD Honda Civic – No Prep

July 3rd, 2018

Greetings drag racing fans and welcome to the Sunshine State for TRC Street Kings. The star of this clip is a 1,100hp all-wheel drive Honda Civic hatch. If you’ve never seen this capable import before then get ready to start rooting for the FrustrateEG crew on their quest for a 7-second quarter-mile. When DR opted to go with a stock 2.0-liter Honda block, he wanted to make it bulletproof. So, he went with sleeved cylinders at 10:1 compression. He added a set of Drag Cartel 3.2 camshafts and a massive Precision 7685 turbocharger. A triple-disk Action clutch aids in shifting Read More

Mustang Boss 302 vs. Vette Z06 – Street Hits

June 26th, 2018

What’s better than street racing on the wide open interstates (of Mexico)? Why, roll racing 3-wide down the interstate into the cool night air of course. Theses competitive drivers know how to get down where the rubber meets the road. Their cars have been purpose-built for roll racing and the pilots are ready to put it all on the line. All that’s left is to fuel up and roll out. Our first contest is a triple play between a 620hp Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, a 635hp Cadillac CTS-V sedan, and a 570hp turbocharged Pontiac Trans Am. ZL1 FTW! Next, we have Read More

Sweet Pea – 10-Second Nova Sleeper

June 21st, 2018

In a perfect demonstration of “It ain’t how you look – it’s what you got under the hood” theology; this rusted-out and uglied-up Nova sedan can flat get down the quarter-mile in a hurry. The dominant theme of this clip is that this below average (looking) Nova is virtually indistinguishable from any other oil dripping, brake squealing, gas guzzling grocery getter going about its daily grind. Here’s what makes this Chevy so special: A 6.0-liter Chevy truck engine has been outfitted with a VS Racing 80-millimeter turbocharger and a Coleman Performance (you’ll get that when you watch the video) ice Read More

8-Second 280Z – TT V8 Monster

June 15th, 2018

I hope that I am not dating myself by saying that I can remember a time when a fellow couldn’t bounce a pair of pliers off the floor without hitting a Nissan (Datsun) 280Z. These little cars were everywhere! Not terribly fast though. They were fun to drive because the suspension was good and most were equipped with a manual transmission. Unfortunately, the wiring started going bad about the second decade and most were scrapped for a more reliable model. Not this one. This one has been reborn! Gone is the sporty and fun to drive little import and in Read More
