Quarter-Mile Pass – Lamborghini vs. Z06

July 28th, 2016

Advanced Modern Performance (Dallas, Texas) has built one heckuva Z06 Corvette. It’s so capable that it can claim the title of world’s fastest Z06 in the 1/4-mile with a 9.3-second pass. The question is; can it withstand this Underground Racing prepared Lamborghini? Let’s have a look. The Lambo seems to take the early advantage as the ‘Vette lags back coming out of the hole. Somehow, the Z06 comes back and lays down a 9.5-second pass and wins by 1/3-of a second. The Lambo had the fastest trap speed, posting a 173.58 to the Corvette’s 148.22. AMP is doing a tremendous Read More

Street Race – Corvette vs. Shelby GT500

July 27th, 2016

It just doesn’t get much better than this; here is a classic street battle between Ford and Chevy. The action is coming at you from an industrial park – on a dead-end thoroughfare. The ‘Vette makes a great first impression as it comes on strong, looking like a beast during warm-ups. The Mustang comes out of the hole with cold tires and walks the track to win the first pass. In the second pass, it seems that the Chevy has made some tuning changes and defeats the Shelby handily. The only thing missing is a third and final pass for Read More

Street Racing – Z06 vs. Porsche 911 and More

July 26th, 2016

BK34 has taken it to the streets (down in Mexico, of course) in his modified Corvette Z06. This bodacious bowtie is equipped with a 6.2-liter supercharger engine from the factory. Add some strategically placed bolt-ons, a camshaft upgrade, and some upgraded cylinder heads and you have the advertised 580whp. He should have his hands full tonight with a Porshe 911 and a Toyota Supra. The ‘Yota has a Precision 6765 turbo and is claiming 650hp. The Porsche is running some very pricey aftermarket add-ons and claiming 540hp at the rear wheels. This is highly-competitive, 3-wide roll racing. Let’s take a Read More

8-Second Manual Transmission Fox Body Mustang

July 25th, 2016

I’m not sure where this guy came from but he showed up at Street Car Takeover in Charlotte, North Carolina and drove the wheels off this stick-shift Mustang. You just don’t see many drivers who can use a clutch and get out of the hole like this guy – he ain’t skeered.  This is heads-up drag racing action between some awesome competitors. The car has a built small block Ford 5.0-liter engine with a turbocharger that the driver calls cheap and foreign-made. Regardless of where the turbo came from, or how much it costs, the car ran good enough to Read More

Airstrip Attack – 800HP Volkswagen Golf

July 22nd, 2016

After cramming a 3.6-liter V6 (from a Passat) into this Golf, this thing is ready to spank some supercars on a closed airstrip. HRP Performance (Germany) put their brand of bullet proof engine modification to work under the hood of this very bad girl that gives the word fahrvergnügen (German for driving enjoyment) a while new meaning. An HRP kit, with a pair of turbochargers, gives this grocery-getter the extra get-up-and-go to run with the big boys. Despite not being a beast out of the hole (no smoke and no spin), this European nightmare manages to get down the track Read More

Street Racing – Ludicrous Tesla vs. Modified GT-R

July 22nd, 2016

In this clip, it’s about to jump off between two extremely powerful but dramatically different daily drivers. The race is all out mayhem between two all-wheel drive powerhouses and it goes from 0 to 100 mph – for $1,000. Whoever is out front, when either car hits 100 mph, takes home the cash. The Tesla S P85D (in Ludicrous mode) is one tough hombre. The Tesla is all-electric, makes approximately 762hp, and can rocket from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.8-seconds. The Nissan is no slouch, with over 550 factory hp and all the bolt-ons. Buckle up – this Read More

2200HP Camaro Takes 1300-Mile Road Trip

July 20th, 2016

Feel like a 1,300-mile road trip? How about in a turbo car that is pushing over 2,000hp? Now, try it with four-rounds of drag racing along the way? That’s exactly what Rocky Mountain Race Week 2016 entails for Doug Cline and his awesome orange 1969 Chevy Camaro. This car is in every way a street car – that is capable of posting 1/4-mile passes that dip into the 6-second range (over 200 mph). It is equipped with a 598 cubic-inch big block Chevy engine and a pair of Precision 94-millimeter turbochargers. Ride along as this journey winds through the Colorado Read More

Classic Camaro Posts New WR for Eighth-Mile

July 19th, 2016

Dewayne Mills in his Golden Gorilla Camaro has just established a new personal best and a world record for turbocharged cars on radial tires – in the 1/8-mile. This footage was shot during the Rage by the River Event; during the semi-finals and finals. The latter of which featured a $7,500 cash prize. After an outstanding weekend of racing, Dewayne and the boys find themselves running solo in the semi-final round. They proceed to post an eye-catching 3.79-second pass at 206.45 mph; that’s good enough to take the world record and move on to the finals. Check out the action Read More

Thunderous TT Chevy II Runs 7-Second Quarter-Mile

July 15th, 2016

Meet Larry Larson and his 1966 Chevy II Nova. This car holds the prestigious honor of being named the fastest street car in the world, for three years consecutively. Larson Race Cars has built dozens of top-tier drag cars and trucks but it seems like they always save the best for themselves – who can blame ‘em? Running in the Comp Eliminator (AA/AT) Class at Drag Week 2016, this Chevy is packing a Larson (Mike Moran) built 565-cubic inch big block with a set of 88-millimeter turbochargers. The Larson team manages a 7.17-second pass at 179 mph on this day but the Read More

Rocky Mountain Race Week – Blown Mustang

July 11th, 2016

In the epitome of “run what ya’ brung” racing, these teams (sometimes teams of one) are asked to compete in an event that encompasses 4 races in five days; on a 1,300-mile road trip. These teams begin with a full night of racing in Kearney, Nebraska before heading out to the next drag strip in Denver, Colorado (many drag cars with a trailer in tow). After Denver, these guys will move on to Pueblo, Colorado before turning around and driving back to Kearney, with a short stop in Great Bend, Kansas at the S.R.C.A. Dragstrip. Don’t miss Larry Larson in his twin Read More
