New Quarter-Mile World Record Viper

March 24th, 2016

What’s that? You think snakes are slow because they have no legs? Well this snake doesn’t have a leg to stand on and gets down the track in good time. D3 Performance Engineering campaigns this Gen V Dodge Viper in the 1/4-mile and the car is posting some pretty impressive elapsed times, including a (Gen V World Record) 9.36-second pass @ 144 mph. D3 is squeezing over 900hp out of this Snake using a ProCharger F1X centrifugal supercharger on 15-pounds of boost. The Viper is also equipped with a generous supply of laughing gas, courtesy of Nitrous Express, but it Read More

Arizona Street Racing

March 15th, 2016

This is 1/4-mile street racing Arizona style – fast paced, organized, and competitive. This contest is of the ‘run-what-you-brung’ single elimination variety with no classifications. Who ever shows up with the best setup and manages to get down the track ahead of the competition until the final round wins the money. Easy peazy lemon squeazy? Not in this field; check it out. In the first round you have a 2.3-liter supercharged Mustang eating up a Nissan GT-R with bolt-on modifications. Next there is a small block powered Chevrolet Monza with nitrous that surprisingly smokes a Corvette ZR-1 and a Fox Read More

900HP General Lee Viper T/A Rocks Street Car Takeover

February 29th, 2016

Roll racing, dig racing, dyno testing – heck there’s even an inadvertent lane change in this clip captured during the Street Car Takeover Event in Dallas, Texas. Calvo Motorsports (Austin, Texas) is tearing up the Lone Star State with its rendition of the General Lee (Dukes of Hazard) except their version has replaced the confederate battle flag with a Texas State flag. The Generation V Snake has been modified with a Powerhouse Racing turbo setup that includes a pair of Garret 3794 turbochargers and a CM MoTec M150 ECU. This car has posted a 1/4-mile ET of 9.2 @ 150.6 Read More

Naturally Aspirated Viper Turns 9.95-Second Quarter-Mile

February 19th, 2016

Andy Wheeler and the crew from Viper Exchange calmly rolled out their Gen 5 Viper, at the Texas Speed Syndicate Viper Nationals Event, and set a world record for the quarter-mile. This beautiful Competition Blue Snake looks and sounds amazing as it blazes through the 1320 in under 10-seconds at 140.69 mph. No forced air induction for this naturally aspirated supercar; in fact it is still under the factory warranty. Modifications include an Arrow ported cylinder head and camshaft kit, an Arrow racing fuel tuned controller, a crank pulley upgrade, ARH long tube exhaust headers and cat-back exhaust system, a Read More

Diesel S10 Posts 10-Second Quarter-Mile

February 10th, 2016

I bet you thought that you’d seen everything there was to see on a drag strip, right? Well, take a gander at this turbocharged diesel Chevrolet S10 pickup. The guys down at firepunk transmissions built this truck to test abuse one of their bulletproof diesel transmissions; and test it they did at the Street Car Takeover Event in Indianapolis. This mid-size pickup is equipped with a 5.9-liter Cummins (Dodge) diesel engine and it billows black smoke like a tar keel. It’s making about 750hp and an amazing 1,450-pound-feet of torque. This thing posts a best ET of 10-seconds and we Read More

Sunset Street Racing South of the Border

January 29th, 2016

This clip has some great heads-up roll racing from the streets of “Old Mexico” – coming at you in all its glory. The cars are primed and the drivers are revved-up for action, so you know it’s going to be an interesting night. The Cadillac CTS-Vs are out in force but our first matchup is between a 5.0-liter Ford Mustang and a 6.4-liter HEMI Chrysler 300 SRT. These two break even as far as I can tell; then the Chrysler rolls out against a CTS-V (6.2-liter supercharged). The Caddy jumps on him and walks the dog all the way to Read More

Turbo Audi Blow Torch Street Racing

January 28th, 2016

This flame throwing turbocharged Audi S2 is taking Swedish street racing by storm. It’s rolling a 2.2-liter engine, a Precision 6466 turbocharger, and a 5-speed transmission. This setup is good for 791hp. Despite the screeching turbocharger and the intimidating blue flame belching from the cropped exhaust, the little German hatchback comes up short. It bucks up against a bodacious Dodge Duster that really lives up to its name – leaving the Audi in its dust. The Audi seems to encounter some type of malfunction out of the hole and the Dodge shows no mercy as it walks away easily; maybe next Read More

Stock Street Race – 2016 Caddy CTS-V vs 2015 Dodge Hellcat

January 8th, 2016

Here’s a couple of bone stock bad boys turning it out on the open road. These “grocery-getter” sedans are outfitted with GoPro cameras and turned loose for some seriously intense racing action. There’s a dig run and several 40 mph roll racing passes before it is determined that the Dodge is just too much for the Cadillac. The 2015 Hellcat comes “right out of the box” making 707hp – what a beast! A 6.2-liter HEMI with a supercharger make this (arguably) the baddest production sedan of all-time. The 2016 CTS-V is no slouch either; with a 6.2-liter supercharged engine, 8-speed automatic, Read More

Supercar Street Shootout

December 31st, 2015

Here’s a good one for you; two European monsters going head-to-head with a radically modified Viper. First off, we’ve got a pair of Eastern Block bruisers going at it in several roll racing heats. In the first heat, it looks like the Mercedes is going to eat the BMW up but the BMW comes back in the last two runs. Then you’ve got the Mercedes versus the mighty Viper. Let’s face it – there ain’t too many cars that are going to get by the Snake in a roll race. The BMW is of the legendary M3 variety and has Read More

Texas Dig Racing – Taking it to the Streets

December 14th, 2015

If you want to experience real fun, try stepping out for a night of street racing down “Mexico” way. Some of the baddest cars in the west showed up for a full night of racing. The Mistress twin turbocharged Chevy II rolled out and so did Barefoot Ronnie (from Discovery Channel’s Street Outlaws series) in his beautiful Yenko Nova. The atmosphere was electric and the racing was amazing as these competitors were anxious to square-off with whatever was in the next lane. There is a LSX 6.0-liter powered Mustang with an 80-millimeter turbo and a dual shot of methanol, a Read More
