Street Racing: Supercharged Mustang vs. SRT Viper T/A

June 30th, 2015

For as long as there have been muscle cars, Ford and Dodge have been battling on the street. Smaller, lighter, small block powered Mustangs going head to head against larger, more powerful Dodges with massive big block HEMI engines, are what made street racing what it is today. This video shows a 2015 Ford Mustang GT with a blown 5.0-liter V8. The supercharger is a 2.3-liter VMP Gen2. Fuel is delivered via a Lund Racing Tuner using Injector Dynamics ID1000 fuel injectors, a stock fuel pump, and a booster. American Racing Headers and exhaust removes spent gases and a McLeod racing Read More

Twin Turbo Viper – King of the Streets?

June 25th, 2015

Congratulations to Andy N. and the gang at D3 Performance Engineering for a win in the Rear-Wheel Drive Class at the 2015 Texas Invitational Automotive Airfield Exhibition. Andy also campaigned his twin turbocharged Viper successfully in the King of the Streets Class, defeating a couple of turbocharged Underground Lamborghinis and making it to the finals before falling to the AMS Performance Nissan GT-R. Andy’s Dodge Viper is powered by a 540-cubic-inch Gentry Performance engine with twin 76-millimeter turbochargers slamming air down its gullet. With the boost turned down to 25 psi, horsepower is estimated at 1,750, with a ceiling of Read More

3,000HP 1963 Dodge Polara

June 19th, 2015

This old Dodge can really get down the track. This thing is beautiful inside and out. Campaigning a beast like this is no simple task; especially on a No-Prep race track. Nevertheless, this driver handled his business and made it look easy. Everyone else in the Unlimited Class (primarily a bunch of blown Chevrolet drivers) seemed to have major issues getting out of the box straight at the Great Lakes Dragway in Union Grove, Wisconsin but this Polara, known as “Bad Judgment”, ran like a bullet. This bodacious black beauty is equipped with a 526-cubic-inch Hemi engine and a massive Read More

2,000HP AMS GT-R King of the Streets

June 18th, 2015

For the second time in as many years,  the AMS GT-R has defeated all challengers at the event which many driving enthusiasts believe is the epitome of roll racing; the Texas Invitational Automotive Airfield Exhibition. Amid a field that includes several twin-turbocharged Lamborghinis and a TT-Dodge Viper, the AMS Performance built Nissan GT-R endures to the end in some very close heads up roll racing. The AMS GT-R is equipped with a fresh Alpha 4.0-liter all-aluminum big-bore engine block and a pair of Alpha CNC ported cylinder heads. A full Alpha exhaust system, specially tuned Alpha Omega turbo kit (complete Read More

Monstrous 1,100HP Ram Cummins Diesel

June 12th, 2015

Join the fun as this Ram pickup proceeds to smoke out the crowd at the Real Street Dyno booth; not before putting up some pretty big numbers, though. To the cheers of delighted onlookers, the big turbocharged diesel revs high and floods the sparkling new dyno booth of Real Street with thick black smoke (despite the makeshift ventilation system). Where diesels are concerned, smoke equals horsepower, so those in attendance were in for a treat when the owner of the Ram took to the street and put on a show, creating even more smoke by spinning the tires. Powered by Read More

Turbocharged Minivan Edges GT-R and Viper in the 1/4-Mile

June 2nd, 2015

What would you do with a broken or abandoned all-wheel drive 1993 Eagle Summit minivan? How about doing what one New Englander did – throwing in a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4G63 four-cylinder engine and heading for the drag strip. After that, see if you can get paired up with a couple of iconic performance machines, like the Nissan GT-R and the Dodge Viper. That’s right Godzilla and the legendary Snake. While the Eagle Summit minivan (manufactured by Mitsubishi) is not known for performance prowess (neither is any other minivan, for that matter), it is moderately light and the four-wheel drivetrain hooks Read More

Dodge Charger Hellcat vs. LS1 Mustang

June 1st, 2015

There ain’t anything that makes my Monday like some street racing from the Lone Star State. Unfortunately, for the owner of this (Chevy LS1 powered) Mustang Foxbody, he is about to get introduced to Mom’s grocery-getter. Mom’s car is a bone-stock bright yellow sedan with street tires. So, I can only imagine how distraught the Ford driver must feel, after swapping the stock motor for a much improved Bowtie engine then replacing the stock rear-end for what appears to be a narrowed Ford 9-inch (with some fat rubber) and trailering his ride to an industrial park deep into the night, Read More

Street Racing: NOS/Supercharged Camaro ZL1 vs. Viper T/A

May 29th, 2015

Check out this contest of speed that begins as a 60 mph rolling race and morphs into a Snake show. With advertised horsepower ratings being a little “flexible” where street racers are concerned, it should come as no surprise when a 632HP car overcomes a 750HP car on an apparently deserted stretch of highway. That is the case in this video from That Racing Channel. The Camaro appears to gain the early edge but the Viper is having none of it; coming back to take the victory in the end. We neither condone or encourage racing on public streets. The Read More

Lamborghini Huracan vs. Dodge SRT Viper T/A

May 20th, 2015

Two things about the Bay area: it is very windy there most of the time and they know how to host a spectacular supercar event. The Bay Area Racing Channel presents this awesome video (if you are a Lamborghini fan) of a Huracan absolutely annihilating a SRT Viper T/A. In all fairness the Viper never seems to gain traction in the right lane, but that is all part of drag racing, right? Despite similar horsepower ratings between the two cars (610 for the Huracan and 640 for the Viper), the Lambo appears to dominate this contest. Potential advantages for the Read More

Corvette ZR1 LPE vs Viper SRT10 Supercharged

May 13th, 2015

This is a heads-up contest between two of the quickest American supercars of the modern era (ever). In the right lane, the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is legendary in its own right but add to it a performance package from Lingenfelter Performance Engineering (LPE) and you have a beast of a car, on the dragstrip or on the road course. Now, take a look in the left lane. There you will see a legendary Dodge Viper SRT10, with supercharged forced air induction for added horsepower. Despite having two fewer cylinders than the Viper, the ‘Vette out muscles the competition in this Read More
