St. Louis Street Racing Action

February 11th, 2016

You can find me in St. Louie, where the street racing action reigns all-day…and night. The “strip” is in an abandoned industrial park and the racing is crazy! Some of the baddest and best street racers in the Midwest show up and show out in some elite level heads-up dig racing. Big name racers like the Beater Bomb, the LSX Willys Jeep, and FR8TRAIN line up for bragging rights and possibly a little cash but there are plenty of other racers making their debut appearance on DragTimes. There’s a nitrous injected Malibu, a supercharged Camaro SS, and a LSx powered Read More

Diesel S10 Posts 10-Second Quarter-Mile

February 10th, 2016

I bet you thought that you’d seen everything there was to see on a drag strip, right? Well, take a gander at this turbocharged diesel Chevrolet S10 pickup. The guys down at firepunk transmissions built this truck to test abuse one of their bulletproof diesel transmissions; and test it they did at the Street Car Takeover Event in Indianapolis. This mid-size pickup is equipped with a 5.9-liter Cummins (Dodge) diesel engine and it billows black smoke like a tar keel. It’s making about 750hp and an amazing 1,450-pound-feet of torque. This thing posts a best ET of 10-seconds and we Read More

Porsche 918 Spyder – Roll and Dig Racing

February 8th, 2016

You gotta see what happens when a million-dollar Porsche 918 Spyder shows up at the Street Car Takeover in Atlanta, Georgia. Unlike most footage that you see of this elite supercar, this clip brings us some drag racing in addition to some roll racing. First up is a dig racing pass against a overmatched Camaro. The Porsche lays down a 10-second pass and he ain’t even got warmed-up yet. Next we find out that Ferdinand did not create all Porsches equally, as the 918 runs all over a 911 Turbo. There’s tons of great racing action and (for the record) Read More

Whoa! 7-Second V6 Firebird?

February 5th, 2016

Did you say that this clip shows a 7-second V6 powered Pontiac Firebird? How can that be? Well, you start with a 3.8-liter Buick engine (from an 80s GTA) and then you add a pair of 62-millimeter ATP turbos. This eye-catching Pearl White ‘Bird has a unique sound that captured the imaginations of everyone at the Street Car Takeover in Phoenix. The first pass is of the roll racing variety. The Firebird bumps up against a bodacious TT ’68 Camaro that walks away easily. Next he spanks a late-model Camaro with only bolt-on modifications in the eighth-mile. There’s lots of Read More

4-Wide Street Racing – U.S. vs Japanese vs European

February 4th, 2016

Get a load of these four bad street cruisers as they lock horns on a crowded highway. There is a 700hp Ford 5.0 Mustang, a 700hp Subaru Impreza WRX STi, an 800hp Mazda Speed3, and an 800hp Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG. This is elite level roll racing as seen from a dash cam and the sights and sounds are unbelievable. The first contest is between the STi and the Mazda and they finish two-heats even Steven. After that the Mustang rolls out against the STi and who knows what happens in that one. The supercharged Mercedes comes on the scene and Read More

1968 Twin Turbo Camaro – SCT Phoenix

February 3rd, 2016

This radically modified muscle car smote the competition at the Street Car Takeover Event in Phoenix, Arizona at the Wild Horse Pass Raceway. It impressively took the crown in the Street Outlaw Class with a 7.88-second pass but the owner claims a best ET of 7.60 @ 185 mph. It comes to the line with a 540-cubic-inch big block being force fed air using a pair of 82-millimeter turbochargers. What you see here is a well put-together car that looks magnificent going down the 1320. This clip features some heads-up roll racing and dig racing; during the day and after Read More

7-Second TT ‘70s Camaro

February 2nd, 2016

This car may have been the highlight of the entire Street Car Takeover Event in Denver. It boasts a sharp silver metallic paint job with burnt orange rally stripes. Inside the rally stripes are the most eye-catching ghost flames that you have ever seen. This is truly one of the most beautiful cars you’ll ever see on a drag strip – but it ain’t how you look it’s what ya’ got under the hood! This beast is equipped with a 565-inch aluminum big block with a pair of Garrett 88-millimeter turbochargers. The combo is obviously good for some serious horsepower Read More

Sunset Street Racing South of the Border

January 29th, 2016

This clip has some great heads-up roll racing from the streets of “Old Mexico” – coming at you in all its glory. The cars are primed and the drivers are revved-up for action, so you know it’s going to be an interesting night. The Cadillac CTS-Vs are out in force but our first matchup is between a 5.0-liter Ford Mustang and a 6.4-liter HEMI Chrysler 300 SRT. These two break even as far as I can tell; then the Chrysler rolls out against a CTS-V (6.2-liter supercharged). The Caddy jumps on him and walks the dog all the way to Read More

Nasty 2200HP Camaro Z28

January 29th, 2016

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water – enter this twin turbocharged big block Camaro Z28. It is a true predator. The engine is a 509-cubic-inch big block (with AFR 357 cylinder heads) and it is force fed air by a pair of 4788 88-millimeter turbochargers. A Rossler transmission and four-link rear suspension help transfer power to the rear wheels. An inventive dual-fuel tank setup allows the car to cruise to the track in style. Running in the unlimited class, this mighty muscle car lays down a 4.8 in the eighth-mile at Street Car Read More

Turbo Audi Blow Torch Street Racing

January 28th, 2016

This flame throwing turbocharged Audi S2 is taking Swedish street racing by storm. It’s rolling a 2.2-liter engine, a Precision 6466 turbocharger, and a 5-speed transmission. This setup is good for 791hp. Despite the screeching turbocharger and the intimidating blue flame belching from the cropped exhaust, the little German hatchback comes up short. It bucks up against a bodacious Dodge Duster that really lives up to its name – leaving the Audi in its dust. The Audi seems to encounter some type of malfunction out of the hole and the Dodge shows no mercy as it walks away easily; maybe next Read More
