Operation Octane – Big Tire – No Prep Eighth-Mile

August 31st, 2016

This is 1/8-mile No Prep drag racing from the pits of Kansas Speedway. We do the same thing every Friday night in Atlanta at Atlanta Motor Speedway (but it’s called Friday Night Drags) and it’s a ton of fun for the whole family. Nevertheless, I don’t think that I’ve ever seen a field like this turn up to drag race across the pits of a circle track. This is an awesome (heavy on Chevy) field of Big Tire competitors. As expected, the track is horrendous. Cars that would normally get down a prepped track with no problems, have a terrible Read More

Nitrous vs. Turbo – Viper vs. Mustang

August 26th, 2016

This black beauty of a Fox Body Mustang is making 1,100whp with a 363 cubic-inch aluminum Dart Racing engine, high performance cylinder heads, and a massive 83-millimeter turbocharger. It’s putting those ponies to the ground with a built automatic racing transmission. After spending a day at the track, and posting an 8.64-second ET at 159.19 mph, the pony car takes to the streets looking for some action. If you are looking for action, chances are that you will find some. This time it comes in the form of a burnt orange Viper SRT. The Dodge Viper SRT is producing 972whp. Read More

Big Three Battle on the Street

August 18th, 2016

Here’s a battle between Chevrolet, Dodge, and Ford (respectfully in alphabetical order), that takes place on the streets of an abandoned Mexican town. All three cars have manual transmissions and all three are bone stock. The racing is of the roll variety and the GoPro equipment is plentiful. That makes for some great looks at these amazing cars. The bright yellow coupe is the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. This is the Chevy flagship and it comes with a 6.2-liter supercharged and direct fuel injected V8 engine (dry sump oiling system) mated to a 7-speed Active Rev Matching manual transmission. The Read More

East Coast Street Racing – Twelve Cars Race for $1200

August 16th, 2016

That’s right baby! This is an East Coast (of Mexico – of course) style, single elimination tournament with twelve drivers contributing $100 each – and the final round winner is driving away with all the cash. While $1200 may not seem like a bunch of money to you; there are some people (myself included) that consider that a pretty good night’s fun (it ain’t work). One of the best things about having a cash-pool is that the competitors have to exit their vehicles and come together for a brief period. This usually results in a lot of trash talking and Read More

1000HP Hellcat Tears Up the Streets

August 16th, 2016

This Dodge Charger Hellcat is currently on a bit of a high horse – High Horse Performance, that is. The team at HHP helped this driver squeeze 1,000hp (950whp) from his 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI by adding a Diablosport tuner, a 2.85 crank pulley, a Green serpentine belt, a cat delete package, a set of Nitto NT 555R drag radials, and a nitrous kit. In factory trim the Hellcat Charger is touted as the baddest production sedan ever made. The 6.2-liter HEMI V8 makes 707hp and 650 lb-ft. of torque. Tonight, he is out trolling the streets for some action and he Read More

Street Racing – Z06 vs. Porsche 911 and More

July 26th, 2016

BK34 has taken it to the streets (down in Mexico, of course) in his modified Corvette Z06. This bodacious bowtie is equipped with a 6.2-liter supercharger engine from the factory. Add some strategically placed bolt-ons, a camshaft upgrade, and some upgraded cylinder heads and you have the advertised 580whp. He should have his hands full tonight with a Porshe 911 and a Toyota Supra. The ‘Yota has a Precision 6765 turbo and is claiming 650hp. The Porsche is running some very pricey aftermarket add-ons and claiming 540hp at the rear wheels. This is highly-competitive, 3-wide roll racing. Let’s take a Read More

1800HP 4WD Dodge Pickup

July 7th, 2016

Here is one for all the NHRDA fans out there. This 2007 Ram has undergone some serious modifications. Anyone who looks at it can tell that there has been a major weight reduction; then there are the 3 turbochargers. This thing is chugging down the 1/4-mile, making consistent passes in the low-to-mid 9-second range, leaving a cloud of black smoke along the way. It seems odd to see a full-size, long-bed, four-wheel drive pickup whipping Camaros and Mustangs but this truck has made it a habit. If this team can find a way to come out of the hole stronger, Read More

Street Racing – Cali Style

June 17th, 2016

Southern California has the perfect weather for almost any outdoor activity; that certainly includes street racing. This outstanding assortment of street beasts has gathered on this deserted country road to see who can claim bragging rights for the Golden State. There’s a 650hp second generation Camaro with a 383-cubic inch stroker and a 250hp shot of nitrous, a Canary Yellow Trans Am with a built 408-small block and an F1 supercharger making 800hp, a 400hp Vega, several impressive Gen I Camaros, a 500hp Dodge Demon, a 600hp Nissan GT-R, and lots more. Check it out for yourself; it’s a full Read More

Dig Race – Evo 9 vs. Viper

June 8th, 2016

What’s better than a parking lot dig race? A parking lot dig race with beautiful women. What’s better than that? – when one of the beauties is driving a really fast car. Stunning Sky Espinoza owns two impressive Mitsubishi Evos and she does most of her own high-performance work and maintenance. She’s a real knockout – behind the wheel and in front of the camera. This clip shows her racing her ‘MisterJ’ Evo against a mighty Dodge Viper. The Mitsubishi rolls off the factory floor with a 2.0-liter turbocharged and intercooled 4-banger. It makes 286hp in factory trim; safe to Read More

Money Race – Tesla P85DL vs Dodge Viper SRT10

June 2nd, 2016

Talk about silent but deadly; this P85 blasts from 10 to 110 mph (in seconds) and doesn’t make a sound. This Tesla raced the Viper previously and took a beating. This video shows the rematch, after a few minor upgrades for the Tesla. Check out the action. This is street racing. The first contest is roll racing, from 10 to 110 mph and the Tesla wins handily. Next, we have roll racing from 20 to 120 mph and the Dodge wins. After that, they begin at 45 mph and the Viper bests the Tesla again. Dig racing is next and Read More
