Red Demon DSM – No Prep Banger

September 26th, 2017

Allow me to begin by saying that if you can make it to the final round of any drag racing event with a four-cylinder powered vehicle, kudos to you! On the other hand – this is certainly not your average four-cylinder. This is a Boostin Performance built 2.0-liter (4G63) with aluminum connecting rods. It is being choked by an 86-millimeter Precision turbocharger and a methanol injection system. The car is making an incredible 85-pounds of boost and is capable of producing 1,500hp (from a four-cylinder!). The event is Chitown King of the Streets and the Red Demon DSM is competing Read More

Street Racing Spectacular – Import vs. Domestic

September 4th, 2017

There is literally something for every street racing enthusiast in this video! Of course, there are tons of fast cars in every size and shape – imports and domestics, turbo and nitrous, standard and automatic. There are dig and roll races (sometimes 3-wide). There’s even a wreck and a fight (sort of). The backdrop is beautiful (New) Mexico and its flat landscape. It’s perfect for street racing. There is a bodacious DSM (1990s Mitsubishi Eclipse or Eagle Talon) that is capable of 1,000hp – from a stock 2.0-liter engine with over 100K miles. You know that there were tons of Read More

Crazy Fast Inline 6-Cylinder Ford Mustang

August 30th, 2017

 If you are into unique race cars, you will love this one. I don’t know whether to call it crazy fast, crazy smooth, or just plain CRAZY! This car accelerates so fast and smooth that it is like something from another world. Well, it is sort of from another world, This Fox Body is based out of a beautiful place called Qatar. The innovative power plant is a Nissan TB48, 4.8-liter, inline 6-cylinder engine from a Nissan Patrol SUV (very popular vehicle in this part of the world). Add a 98-millimeter turbocharger with all the goodies, along with a custom Read More

Is FWD Faster? 950HP Civic

July 7th, 2017

With a built 2.0-liter, four-cylinder, engine  and a 6785 twin-scroll turbocharger, this Honda Civic is taking on V8 powered Mustangs and Camaros with reckless abandonment. Not only is he taking them on – he’s whipping them in the majority of his races. Helping the underdog import to surprise all those V8 jockeys is a wild looking custom intake manifold from KS Tuned in Kennewick, WA and dual (2 per cylinder) 2000cc ID fuel injectors. Today the little Honda that could is running in the Banger Class at Chi-Town’s King of the Streets. This is a class set up for cars with Read More

Roll Racing on the Street – McLaren vs. Ferrari

April 15th, 2017

If high profile street racing is what you seek – this is it! How much better could it get than a McLaren 570S and a Ferrari 488GTB, engaged in a contest of speed and acceleration on the street? One thing is for certain; if you spot these two fine examples of automotive engineering on your local interstate, it will be a memorable trip. The McLaren 570S is marketed as an entry level supercar. It is less intense and expensive than other McLaren models. The monocoque, mid-engine coupe is equipped with a 3.8-liter V8 engine capable of producing 562hp and 443 Read More

Parking Lot Drags – Small Tire

December 15th, 2016

Anyone who has ever raced in a parking can attest to the fact that it can be treacherous. This track, on this weekend, was possibly one of the most dangerous that I have ever seen. First of all, the track was an eighth-mile uphill – couldn’t find a flat place in Houston, Texas? Next, the drag strip dead-headed into a convention center. What’s up with that? Drag cars have enough problems stopping (hence the parachute) so why throw salt in the wound by restricting the landing strip to an area the width of a four-lane road? Finally, traction was nonexistent Read More

Wheelstand Wednesday — The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly

April 1st, 2015

Wheelie-bars? We don’t need no stinkin’ wheelie-bars! Check out these Mustangs, Mopars, Malibus, and muscle-bound Camaros (there is even a Luv pickup and a Willis) as they attempt to go airborne. Some get “hooked-up” and lay down a fantastic quarter or eighth-mile pass. Some are literally up and down, from one end of the track to the other, and a few are just epic failures (one car even leaves parts strewn all over the track). Surely these guys have now invested in a good set of wheelie-bars after tearing up their rear-bumpers, roll pans, and other miscellaneous components, by slamming Read More

Wheelstand Wednesday — Compilation Video

March 25th, 2015

Ride along in these extraordinarily powerful pro-stock and sportsman cars as they “tote the front” coming off the line. Some end in a beautiful pass and some end in absolute catastrophe. Pulling the front wheels off the pavement at the start of a quarter or eighth-mile run is typically an indication that a competitor is “hooked up” properly and will post a good time. Watch what happens when a car is so powerful that three — and sometimes even four — wheels leave the pavement and the driver is forced to compensate. Excellent photography from multiple angles combined with strategically Read More

Underground Racing Lamborghini Gallardo Twin Turbo Texas Mile Crash Video

October 26th, 2010

One of Underground Racing’s Twin Turbo Lamborghini Gallardo’s producing 1,500 – 1,900 horsepower went off the runway at over 200MPH shortly after it’s chute opened while attempting a new world record standing 1 mile pass. The following footage is the first we’ve seen that actually shows the entire run and crash. Amazingly, the driver Richard Holt, actually walked away from this disastrous accident. Source: Gary Javo

Lamborghini Gallardo squeezes into tight parking spot

January 9th, 2010

Take a look at this freak Lamborghini Gallardo accident in Hollywood Hills, CA. The front of the Gallardo was so low that it went right underneath a Saab SUV lifting it up into the air. The Gallardo seems to hold up well, the roof didn’t seem to buckle at all.
