1200HP Corvette – Godzilla Killa

May 10th, 2017

One doesn’t often see a modest Chevrolet Corvette walking away with the crown (Sport Class) in a roll racing event the size of TX2K17. It is even more unexpected to see such an occurrence when there are cars like the Nissan GT-R (Godzilla), Lamborghini Huracan, and the mighty Dodge Viper on hand. Add the fact that this C5 Vette is equipped with a manual transmission and you have a real phenomenon. This 2-seater is powered by a 408 cubic-inch GM small block and a massive turbocharger. The owner/operator (Ty) states that the car is capable of producing 1,200(ish)hp. Round 1 Read More

Have a gander for yourself. As usual, this is single elimination, winner take all fun. You can’t jump the light or cross the center line or Read More

What took place there will be forever etched in the annals of drag racing history. Some might ask why Lyle would ever get back into a race car. Those people wouldn’t understand that inside him beats the heart of a drag racer. After a long recovery, Lyle climbed behind the wheel of Jason Digby’s 1969 Dodge Read More
