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

World’s First 9-Second Hellcat Charger

December 1st, 2015

Check out this Dodge Charger Hellcat as it blasts through the 1/4-mile in 9-seconds. Better yet check it out in awesome 360-degree video. This Mopar is piloted by a lovely blonde named Linda and, as you can see, she is up to the task of handling what is arguably one of the quickest American made production cars ever. This footage comes to you from Cecil County Dragway in Rising Sun, Maryland. Linda’s Hellcat is rated at 902hp and 866-lb.-ft. of torque. Modifications are limited to the bolt-on variety and feature a Metco upper pulley, ATI lower pulley, exhaust mid-pipes with Read More

Stolen Lambo vs Fatt Cat’s Challenger

November 3rd, 2015

When street racing, it pays to “Drive it like you stole it”, as the old saying goes. In this clip it is alleged that the driver of the 2015 Lamborghini Huracan may have actually stole it. He is an automobile transporter out on the town and looking for a thrill. If you only have one shot at seeing how you measure up in a street race, then you’ll want to head down south of the border (I didn’t know that there was a city in Mexico called Houston, hmmm) and look up a hustler named Fatt Cat. Chances are that Read More

Cadillac CTS-V Battles Dodge Viper on the Street

October 29th, 2015

In the real world of street racing Caddys don’t rub fenders with Vipers – or do they? In this clip at least one Cadillac not only takes on an SRT Viper but leaves it in its tracks. This video consists of two passes. In the first pass, the Viper has the go-go juice turned up to 1,100 psi and he gives the CTS-V a decent run.  In the second run, the Viper turns the laughing gas down to 900 psi and only puts forth a paltry effort, at best. Both cars are equipped with a healthy dose of NOS from Read More
