9-Second Camaro – Dual Power Adders

March 23rd, 2018

So, what’s a racer to do about that pesky turbo (supercharger) lag? After all, few things are more irritating than dropping the hammer and coming out of the hole like a slug; especially when you have sunk a ton of dough in a turbo or supercharger. There are ways to squash that lag and turn your sled into a rocket. If you are a turbo guy (or girl), you can add a second smaller (lower RPM) turbo. That’ll kick your tail out of the hole like scalded dog but it is pricey and can propose space challenges. A more efficient Read More

March 23rd, 2018

It is the holy grail of proud and loyal Toyota followers.

Tonight the mystical creature of Toyota lore will be taking on some worthy opponents. Let’s take a look and see how it fares. The first test for the Supra Read More

Georgia vs. Florida – Cash Days

March 22nd, 2018

Buckle up racing fans; there’s no room for error in this one. These lanes are narrow and there is zero space on either side. Racing will be of the dig variety and it is single elimination. The rules are simple; don’t jump the light and don’t be first to cross the center-line. If you can accomplish those two things and cross the finish line before your opponent, you move on to the next round. After that, just be the last car to win a round (finals) and walk away with a fist full of cash. Easy right? This contest is Read More

Some big time Nissan GT-Rs, Lamborghini Huracans, Audi R8s, and Dodge Vipers have shown up and they are looking to show out on this heavily prepped stretch of hot, flat pavement.

Soccer Mom Assault Vehicle – Jeep Trackhawk

March 13th, 2018

What better way to take the edge off a stressful week than to hit the drag strip in your daily driver? Especially if your grocery-getter is a 707hp (645 lb.-ft. of torque) Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. The track is the legendary Cecil County Dragway in Rising Sun, Maryland. It’s opening day when mom rolls up with a full-face, pink helmet and a child seat in the back. With factory launch control and an all-wheel drivetrain, she is equipped to spank some keester. The Trackhawk utilizes the same engine as the Hellcat. It’s a supercharged (2.4-liter IHI) 6.2-liter V8, running 11.6 Read More

California Dreamin’ – Street Rolls

March 9th, 2018

It’s back to the left coast again for a healthy dose of beautiful sunshine, sea air, and sand in our flip flops – er, no – what we seek is open interstate, gasoline fumes, and hot floorboards. That’s exactly what we got from this outstanding group of street (roll) racers, south of the border. The action kicks off when the sun goes down with an all-wheel drive Honda CR-V that has been outfitted with a turbocharger. It has a 2.0-liter V-TEC engine and has undergone some basic weight reduction. There’s a twin turbo Dodge Viper running E85. A pair of Read More

Import vs. Domestic – Street Hits

March 2nd, 2018

Typical nightlife, somewhere south of the border. The backdrop: the deserted interstate of a big city. The players: Some of the most elite roll racing hooligans and renegades in North America. After the posturing and other pre race antics are completed, it’s time to get at the real stars of the show – the cars (and truck). First up is a 1,300hp Nissan GT-R. It has been treated to a Boost Logic 1300X Package and it moves like lightning strikes (hard and fast). In strict contrast, there’s a Firebird Formula with a built 6.0-liter V8, LS3 cylinder heads, and an Read More

8-Second LS Swapped Lexus

March 2nd, 2018

Competing in the True Street Class, this Lexus IS 300 takes the term Performance Compact Sedan in a whole new direction. Noticeably absent is the factory 6-cylinder engine. A big old (5.3-liter) Chevrolet LS V8 (all-aluminum) engine has taken its place. Also present is a massive Garrett (88-millimeter) turbocharger with minimal piping and accessories. Shifting duties are handled via a powerglide transmission. The crew from Dedicated Motorsports (Round Rock, Texas) has worked tirelessly to get this crazy creation to hook up and blast through the trap in a semi-straight line. They have showed up at Street Car Takeover Oklahoma with Read More

Chevrolet vs. Toyota – Texas Street Hits

March 2nd, 2018

Just when I thought it was safe to take my Chevy back onto the highway, a souped-up Toyota Supra showed up and stole my thunder. Join us on the streets of Texas (Mexico) for some late night interstate roll racing. Climb on board an 850whp Procharged (F1A) Chevrolet Camaro and buckle up for some serious highway rolls. First, we will take on a 900whp YSI Chevrolet Corvette Z06 well equipped with a Late Model Engines (LME) built 7.0-liter, all-aluminum, dry sump engine with a Vortech YSI supercharger. Ambient air is cooled and mode denser with a methanol injection system (5-gallon Read More
