Rolling Coal – World’s Fastest Diesel Drag Truck

February 27th, 2021

Congratulations are in order for the Firepunk Diesel Drag Truck team. The Firepunk crew managed to get their Cummins diesel-powered 2000 Chevrolet S10 Pro Stock truck into the history books by posting an eighth-mile pass of 3.988-seconds @ 182.67 mph. While that might not be good enough to win the event, it is good enough to set a World Record for a diesel-powered dragster. Competing in the Radial Versus the World Class at 2021 Lights Out 12 (South Georgia Motorsports Park), the 6.7-liter Cummins diesel-powered S10 accomplished a feat that was unheard of a mere decade ago. Developments in clean Read More

Night Drags – C7 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 vs Acura NSX

February 26th, 2021

Import versus domestic is the new standard grudge match when it comes to virtually every form of racing. The grudge is well represented in this contest between the flagship of the GM lineup and the best that Acura (Honda) has to offer. Both vehicles are stock (or nearly stock). The C7 (2014-2019) Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is a beast of a street car. Equipped with an LT4 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine, the C7 Z06 can make 650hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. The LT4 power plant features such innovative performance components as Rotocast A356T6 aluminum cylinder heads and a 1.7-liter Eaton Read More

Blown Chevy Silverado Gaptizes Nissan GT-R – Half-Mile Airstrip Attack

February 25th, 2021

From Bandimere Speedway (Rocky Mountain Race Week) to Kansas for the Kansas Airstrip Attack, this stick shift Chevrolet Pickup is kicking butt and taking names. After a major rear end catastrophe, Cory and his team had to locate parts and repair their blown Chevy in order to irk out the final pass of Rocky Mountain Race Week Day One. Although he posted an 11.86 @ 122.85 mph, Cory was unbelievably excited to complete a Day One pass after all his struggles. Anyone who has ever been in a similar situation couldn’t help but share in this guy’s enthusiasm. It was Read More

Old School vs Nuevo Speed – TT Corvette and TT LS Rail Job

February 24th, 2021

Two cars could not be more different. The Corvette Z06 is spit and polish modern with leather interior, shiny paint and climate control. On the other hand – the rail job is a 1927 Dodge Split-Window Coupe with a bare-bones cockpit, a bit of patina on the exterior – and tons of attitude. Similarities include LS engines and twin turbochargers. Let’s see what happens when the rubber meets the road. The 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is capable of making 1,500hp. Today, it is detuned to 1200hp. The transmission is a 2-speed RPM Powerglide and the car tips the scale at Read More

8-Second Audi RS3 – GT-R World Cup

February 20th, 2021

Imagine that you are Rada Race Lab out of Chicago and you’ve just finished up a lengthy Audi RS3 build. You leave the snow and freezing temps and drive all the long way to sunny Florida for the GT-R World Cup. Once you arrive, you post a 9-second pass on your maiden voyage. That’s right – a 9-second quarter-mile on the car’s first full pass. Extraordinary. Under the hood is a stock (inline 5-cylinder) engine that has been fortified with sleeved cylinders, billet main bearing caps and oversize cylinder head studs. Raising all the ruckus is a Garrett G42-1450 turbocharger Read More

West Texas Street Hits – Turbo LS Mustang vs Nitrous Chevy Bel Air

February 19th, 2021

When it rains – it pours, and it is flooding hardcore street cars down in West Texas. This video covers a night when top-tier street machines took over the interstate (closed course in Mexico). Nitrous, turbo, and supercharged competitors were all represented as these awesome machines took to the street. Let’s catch up. Fresh out of the gate, we have a turbocharged Pontiac Trans Am WS6 rolling on a 900HP C6 Corvette ZR1 with a Kong Ported (2650) blower. Both these cars look like they mean business. The Poncho gets the early jump before the Vette catches up and takes Read More

Twenty Car Street Digs – Houston Cash Days

February 18th, 2021

You know the rules. It’s single elimination – if you lose, get back on the trailer. Don’t jump the light early and don’t cross the center line. If you make it to the finish line quicker than the guy (or girl) in the other lane, you move on to the next round. Whoever wins the most rounds gets the money. That’s $250 times twenty cars ($5,000). While this is technically taking place on a closed course, with safety personnel standing by, the racing conditions are as close to “street” as possible. The track is not prepped and the course is Read More

Turbo Chevy Silverado vs. Modified Dodge Viper – Street Hits

February 16th, 2021

This video has it all – fast cars and a fast pickup truck. Featured in this short clip is a contest (roll race) between a Chevrolet Silverado pickup and a 2013 Dodge Viper GTX. Sure, in stock trim the Viper would handily annihilate the Silverado (and any other pickup) but neither of these chariots remain in factory condition. Have a closer look. Obviously, this Chevrolet Silverado has been radically modified for the purpose of competitive driving. It more closely resembles a NASCAR Truck Series entry than a work truck. Low and stealthy, this truck looks menacing in basic black. The Read More

Camaro ZL1 vs TT AWD Silverado – $6000 Street Race

February 10th, 2021

This clip is coming at you straight outta’ Compton – from one of the most iconic street racing venues in the world. This stretch of public blacktop has seen so much drag racing that it resembles a prepped track. This is a wild place when the stench of racing fuel is in the air. Onlookers from all over the country come to get a glimpse of top-tier competitors battling for big money. Tonight, we have a pair of heavy hitters ready to compete for $6,000. Both vehicles have been radically modified to enhance performance and outfitted with drag radials for Read More

Toting the Front – 1500HP Porsche 911

February 9th, 2021

No longer a “GT-R only” event, the GT-R World Cup is now open to all makes and models. Coming to the line in this year’s gathering is this incredible Porsche entry. Unlike other notable fast Porsche models, this car sounds like a monster. It also has massive slicks and reeks of race gas. Oh – by the way – it hooks up and pulls the front wheels skyward on almost every pass. This is not your run-o-the-mill Porsche. Running in the DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) Class, this German sports car has an AIM Performance built 4.0-liter engine (with help from Read More
