By: Stephen Hearn Greetings drag racing fans and fellow speed freaks from every walk of life! It’s time! Time for the 2018 Hot Rod Magazine Drag Week. This year, the most grueling drag race event in the world has been moved to the sunny south. Problem is that somebody forgot to tell Florence – Hurricane Florence that is. This year, the 1,000-mile event begins at Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, Georgia with more than 400 street cars; ready to prove they have what it takes to make the lengthy trip and race on four drag strips in five days. After a full Read More

Twin Turbo Viper vs. YSi Z06 – Street Hits

September 5th, 2018

Welcome fellow street racers to Mexico for a night of elite level roll racing on the interstate. On hand are some of the most sophisticated (FAST!) street racing machines on the planet. Vehicles from all of the “Big 3” domestic automakers have turned-out, as well as a sprinkling of imports. Included in this distinguished group are an 850hp twin turbo (stock 5.0-liter engine) Ford Mustang and a 1,000+hp Vortech YSi supercharged Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Hold onto your hat as these two hit the highway. In the first pass, the ‘Vette encounters traffic and the Mustang takes the win. Pass number Read More

All-Motor LS3 Swapped RX7 – Street Hits

August 30th, 2018

Alright street racing enthusiasts; who remembers cramming big V8 engines between the fenders of a tiny Chevy Vega, Opel, or Mustang II? Those were the days. We could build a 5.7-liter Chevrolet engine (four-bolt mains) that could hang with anything on the street (roll and dig). The Vega, Opel, and Mustang II have all gone away. That leaves us with the heavier Camaro/Trans Am, Mustang, W-Body, and G-Body. Luckily, these days we have access to better power-adders – at unbelievable prices – than we could’ve ever imagined in those days. Nevertheless, it would be great if a blue-collar guy could Read More

Vengeance is Mine Saith… Ned – 1800hp Viper

August 30th, 2018

Vengeance Racing has developed a hard-built reputation as premier Corvette builders for their ability to wring power from the LSx platform. You can understand how an email from a Viper owner resulted in a request denied. He was courteously referred to one of the many Viper shops around the land. After more emails and repeated refusals, Viper owner Ned – not being a man who takes no for an answer – took a trip to Georgia to visit Vengeance Racing and plead his case to the powers that be. Being reasonable men, the guys at Vengeance brought the strange creation Read More

Real Street Racing – South Georgia Cash Days

August 28th, 2018

Yep, this is South Georgia (Mexico) alright. The dragstrip is no wider than a pig trail. There are more pickups entered in the cash days than cars. There’s a PT Cruiser running a 350hp shot of nitrous and if Colonel Sanders stepped out of the bushes (which are very close to the pavement) with a bucket of chicken, no one would be surprised. Right off the trailer, we got a heavily modified Nissan 300z against a V8 Chevy S10 pickup. Both racers leave the line clean but the S10 drags the import for the win. Race two of round one; Read More

Corvette vs. Mustang – Street Hits

August 22nd, 2018

Like a pack of wild dogs these Corvettes are attacking a Mustang like he’s got peanut butter smeared all over his undercarriage. These things are crazy-fast and ripping through the streets of Old Mexico like a hot knife through butter. Come on and have a gander. You know it’s going to be a great night when your camera car is a (black) Corvette ZR1 with a camshaft and cylinder head upgrade. Oh, and don’t forget a Kong ported blower treatment with an ice water intercooler. Opening up these blowers is yielding some amazing gains in horsepower and torque. Climb in Read More

1000HP LS Swapped RX8 – Street Rolls

August 16th, 2018

This is my kind of street racer. I love a small car with a big old engine and a power-adder (or two). Well, they certainly don’t get much smaller than the Mazda RX8. In factory trim, it weighs in at a scant 2,800-pounds; is 175-inches long, 70-inches wide, and 60-inches tall. Now, outfitted with a 6.0-liter GM V8 engine and a TH400 GM transmission, the little Mazda tips the scales a bit heavier but makes it up in horse power and acceleration. Oh, best not forget – a pair of turbochargers, too. Let’s get down to Old Mexico and get Read More

1000WHP Forza Hellcat Street Hits

August 14th, 2018

Forza Tuning and Performance in Clearwater, Florida is turning out some of the baddest Dodge Challenger Hellcat contenders on street or strip. The feature car in this video is an example of the magic that can happen when a high-performance tuning facility and a car owner think outside the box. Like most ultra-modern speed shops, Forza provides a diverse array of preconfigured performance packages for the Hellcat, Demon, and many other vehicles. Unlike other hot rod shops, Forza is glad to go the extra mile when really fast just ain’t fast enough. After maxing his Challenger Hellcat out with a Read More
