Turbo Fox Body – 7-Second Small Tire Monster

August 17th, 2018

Welcome drag racing fans to the Street Car Takeover, Denver. Some of the baddest drag racers in the U.S. have braved the high altitude and battled the mountains to come together in this contest of traction and power. Our feature car for this clip is a Fox Body Ford Mustang competing in the Street Car Class and the Small Tire Class. Under the hood is a 540 cubic-inch Big Block Chevy with ASR cylinder heads and a Precision PT118 turbocharger (118-millimeter). Power is estimated to be in the 1,600hp range and the car posted a 7.94-second elapsed time @ 182.43 Read More

1000HP LS Swapped RX8 – Street Rolls

August 16th, 2018

This is my kind of street racer. I love a small car with a big old engine and a power-adder (or two). Well, they certainly don’t get much smaller than the Mazda RX8. In factory trim, it weighs in at a scant 2,800-pounds; is 175-inches long, 70-inches wide, and 60-inches tall. Now, outfitted with a 6.0-liter GM V8 engine and a TH400 GM transmission, the little Mazda tips the scales a bit heavier but makes it up in horse power and acceleration. Oh, best not forget – a pair of turbochargers, too. Let’s get down to Old Mexico and get Read More

1000WHP Forza Hellcat Street Hits

August 14th, 2018

Forza Tuning and Performance in Clearwater, Florida is turning out some of the baddest Dodge Challenger Hellcat contenders on street or strip. The feature car in this video is an example of the magic that can happen when a high-performance tuning facility and a car owner think outside the box. Like most ultra-modern speed shops, Forza provides a diverse array of preconfigured performance packages for the Hellcat, Demon, and many other vehicles. Unlike other hot rod shops, Forza is glad to go the extra mile when really fast just ain’t fast enough. After maxing his Challenger Hellcat out with a Read More

Fastest 2018 Mustang – Taking it to the Street

August 10th, 2018

This tale begins with a beautiful 2018 Ford Mustang. The pony car has been treated to a pair of turbochargers via an Aldo Welds TT Kit. The car is prepared by Midnight Performance and tuned by Lund Racing. Let’s see what happens when he hits the streets (of Mexico). Alas! Our first victim is a 900hp Chevy Corvette ZR1. As we pull onto the interstate; he rolls alongside for a 60 to 120 pass. In multiple hits, the ‘Vette gets the jump, but the Mustang squeezes him out at the end of each. Next, we have a twin turbo Camaro Read More

Mercedes-Benz AMG GT-R vs. Lambo, Nissan GT-R, ZR1

August 9th, 2018

Welcome and thanks for joining us at the Palm Beach International Raceway in beautiful, sunny Florida. Today, we will see the much-heralded Mercedes-Benz AMG GT-R take-on the likes of a tuned Jeep Trackhawk, a 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, a 2017 Nissan GT-R, and a Lamborghini Huracan. Competition today is set to include drag racing and roll racing. As the track heats up so does the roll racing action with the tuned (by Gearhead) Trackhawk jumping on the AMG GT-R. Green Hell drives around him FTW! Next up, we have our own in the red Lamborghini Huracan. From the dig, Brooks Read More

9-Second 1965 Chevy Impala

August 9th, 2018

Don’t overlook our brothers and sisters of speed and horsepower in the great pacific Northwest. Spokane County (Washington) Raceway and Street Car Takeover deliver with some of the maddest vehicles in the land battling it out in drag and roll racing action. Have a gander for yourself. Right out of the gate – we have some mad cap roll racing hits. These guys are wide open with lots of imports (as one might expect) and top speeds in the 160-mph zone. Then there’s the Pontiac that loses it entering the trap and goes all headlights-taillights-headlights-taillights but never hits either wall Read More

Everyone is here. So, without further ado – run your car, not your mouth – as the man says. With everyone’s money turned in and darkness falling on this narrow strip Read More

Toyota Shop Truck Spanks Exotics

August 2nd, 2018

Greetings race fans and welcome to the historic Palm Beach International Raceway. Today, we are at the sight of the Toyota Invitational, presented by TRC. Exotic, classic, and high-performance vehicles from virtually every manufacturer are on hand and this is shaking out into a very successful event. Understandably, everyone is mingling about the expensive exotics and smoozing the supercar crowd. Nobody is checking out a plain looking Toyota pickup. Some seem to think that it might be a service truck or a shop truck but this little truck is officially registered and in it to win it! In the blink Read More

Second Chance Racing – Motivational Drags

August 2nd, 2018

If this one don’t get you fired up – your wood must be wet! Tanner is an inspiration to me and I believe he will have a similar effect on other racers and non-racers as well. Approximately one-year ago Tanner was involved in an accident while riding his motorcycle. The bike collided with a car and Tanner was badly injured. He lost a portion of both legs and had a severe spinal injury (among other things) that prompted doctors to predict that he would never walk again and he most surely would never drive. The best that the medical profession Read More
