KC Cash Days – Street Digs

December 1st, 2016

Big tire versus small tire – cars versus pickups – Fords, Chevys, Mopars, and imports all lining up in head-to-head no prep street racing action. It’s a wild time on the Kansas City street racing scene. A private landowner has opened up his own personal drag strip to all comers and a tremendous contingent of top-tier competitors has turned out to win a fat stack of cash in single elimination, run-whatcha-brung, dig racing. Small tire guys are always whining about big tire guys whipping them. Big tire guys cry because setting their cars up costs more than the small tire Read More

Nth Moto Viper Posts New Quarter-Mile World Record

November 23rd, 2016

Taking exotic, performance, and racing cars to the ninth-degree (and beyond) is the mantra of Nth Moto in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This Gen V Dodge Viper is the evidence of their passion. On November 18, 2016, this Snake became the first of its species to dip into the eights in the quarter-mile; posting a single pass of 8.4-seconds @ 171 mph. Of course, that also makes this particular Viper the quickest of its kind in the 1320. In factory trim the Dodge Viper packs quite a wallop with an odd-firing, naturally aspirated, 8.4-liter, V10 engine capable of producing 640hp and 600 Read More

Mopar Madness

November 9th, 2016

When you hear the word “madness’ you may tend to associate it with insanity but in this instance, I want you to relate it to anger. Why? Because Mopar fanatics get staggering mad when they look between the fenders of this late model Dodge Challenger and find a big old Chevrolet engine producing the ponies. That’s right HEMI-heads; this 2-ton behemoth is propelled by a 427 cubic-inch LSX engine that is being force fed copious amounts of air by a Precision 106-millimeter turbocharger. Shifting duties are being handled by a TH400 automatic transmission. This car was running consistent 8-second 1/4-mile Read More

Dodge Viper ACR Takes on Europe

October 19th, 2016

Give me a minute race car enthusiasts; I am having a belly laugh at this British gentleman commentator. His accent tickles my ears and he just said that the Dodge Viper ACR may not be as “dynamically brilliant as some of the cars that come out of Germany” – what a hoot. The latest and greatest (and probably the last) Dodge Viper is purely and simply a race car, designed for speed no matter what the purpose. There may be a few very expensive rides (produced in Germany) that can stand toe-to-toe with this Viper but give me that good Read More

WANNAGOFAST Georgia Half-Mile Shootout

October 14th, 2016

Howdy racing fans and welcome to Heaven’s Landing in Clayton, Georgia for the wannaGOFAST Georgia 1/2-Mile Shootout. On hand are some of the baddest street cars on the planet; ready to lock horns in head-to-head 1/2-mile dig racing action to top speed. Over 3,000 spectators and 135 competitors came out to give it all they had in what proved to be a monumental undertaking. On Saturday, the top speed of the day was 218.77 mph. On Sunday, Sal Patel posted a new track and World Rear-Wheel Drive record of 224.55 mph in his beast of a Dodge Viper. Check it Read More

Ultimate Exotic Car Showdown

October 3rd, 2016

This could be billed as the most complete showdown of supercars ever compiled – with a few exceptions. The Bugatti entry is noticeably absent, there’s no Nissan GT-R, the Corvette Z06 was overlooked, the Dodge Viper ACR is nowhere to be seen, and what about Tesla? One more honorable mention might be the Koenigsegg Agera but that’s probably advancing into a different realm of automobiles. Nevertheless, this list is quite impressive and the video will leave any car enthusiast feeling as if they need to climb into the cockpit. The backdrop is a sunny RAF airstrip somewhere in the United Kingdom. The Read More

Drag Week 2016 – Aussie Invasion

September 14th, 2016

It’s time for one of the biggest amateur drag racing events in the USA and the Australian teams are here is force. Hot Rod Drag Week is going strong in the Midwest and the 2016 field consists of nearly 350 entrants, including a barrage of hard-charging Australian lads and lassies, looking to test their skills and have a lot of fun. Drag Week events mean racing on four tracks in five days accompanied by a road trip of about a thousand miles. The catch is that the drag cars must be driven between racetrack destinations. That’s a lot of wear Read More

Canadian Street Racing – Toronto Roll and Dig

September 9th, 2016

So, this is how they do it in the Great White North, eh? It seems like they really know how to get to it when it comes to high caliber street racing. All the heavy hitters showed up in Toronto – and on short notice, too. There is the usual onslaught of Camaros and Corvettes but there are also a couple of unusual rides, including an LS powered RX-7, a Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG, and a BMW S1000 RR motorcycle (modified). The RX-7 is running a 5.3-liter Chevy small block LS motor with a camshaft upgrade, a Borg Warner S480 turbocharger Read More

Texas vs Oklahoma – Street Racing Event

September 5th, 2016

The animosity between Longhorns and Sooners has been brewing for longer than automobiles have been in production. This street racing event brings all this ill will to a head on the hot asphalt of a deserted industrial park (and throws in lovely razorback to boot). Welcome drag racing fans to Cash Days 2016. You know that you are in for a treat when you see the likes of the Murder Nova, the Mistress Chevy II, the Kamikaze El Camino, the Big Baller Coupe Mustang, the Chevy II known as Cornbread, and the Dominator Dodge Dart on hand for head-to-head, single elimination, Read More

Porsche 918 Spyder vs Dodge Viper ACR vs McLaren P1

September 1st, 2016

This video saga involves three vastly different exotic cars, on the same tires, on the same track, and with the same driver. No, it’s certainly not drag racing, but it is an extremely even test of some of today’s most outstanding automobiles. The cars are the Porsche 918 Spyder. It is a hybrid high-performance vehicle that features a mid-mounted, 90-degree V, 4.6-liter engine, with a flat plane crankshaft, and two-electric motors making 887hp and 944 lb-ft. of torque. That’s pretty impressive but the sticker price is downright shocking at a cool starting point of $847,975. The Dodge Viper ACR represents Read More
