Turbo Coyote Mustang – 7-Second Quarter-Mile

May 1st, 2017

Despite the multitude of spectacular machines that turned out for Street Cat Takeover in Orlando, Florida, this Mustang stood apart from the crowd. In the first place, the owner was registered in three separate classes – the Roll Racing Class, the LSx vs Modular Engine Class (the Coyote engine is a modular engine), and the ultra-competitive Street Racer Class. In the second place, the Mustang featured in this video posted an event record pass of 7.53-seconds @ 187.81 mph (in the Street Racer Class). This was also an all-time best E.T. and top speed for this car and crew. Thirdly, Read More

Making a Four-Wheeled Honda Fast

April 28th, 2017

The owner of the Honda S2000 featured in this video has a desire to help his fellow import owners. He wants to show us all how to make our import street and strip cars get down the track a lot faster. He accomplishes his mission within the first 30-seconds of the clip but you will want to stay for the hot drag racing action. This post is coming at you from beautiful, sunny Orlando, Florida (east coast home of Mickey Mouse) and the Street Car Takeover. As soon as the hood on the bright red Honda is opened, anyone can Read More

Street Racing Cowboy Style

April 27th, 2017

This well produced clip documents a night of competitive dig racing on the streets of Dallas/Fort Worth (Mexico, of course). It’s called Mini Cash Days and the buy-in is $100 per car with a 10-car field. It’s winner take all (actually 80-percent) and the action is single elimination with the losers in each round going back on the trailer. Lots of great looking street racers showed up for this night of street racing. It’s mostly Chevys and Fords but there is a particularly impressive LSX swapped Datsun 300Z and a couple of Cadillacs – you gotta see this one. When Read More

Climb on board the Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) Nissan GT-R and let Lucas English (of English Racing) take you step-by-step through a 1/4-mile pass.

Classic Camaro Packs Giant TT Punch

April 25th, 2017

The only thing better than a great looking classic Chevrolet Camaro is a great looking classic Camaro that is capable of running some consistent low E.T.s in the 1/8-mile. This car fills that bill. Seriously, this car hooks up as proficiently and consistently as any car I have ever seen – straight out of the hole and right down the track like it’s on a rail. It is truly a credit to the tuner and the entire crew. The only complaints we heard were from little kids. It seems that every time the Camaro made a pass, all the air Read More

Evo X World Record Quarter-Mile

April 22nd, 2017

Hello drag racing fans and speed aficionados of every variety. Join me in congratulating Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) and English Racing as they (once again) shatter the world record 1/4-mile with a pass of 8.48-seconds @ 164.1 mph. The crew had the little sedan running in the 8.5-second range the entire event (TX2K17) and finally hit the right spot for a blow out pass in the latter stages. It seemed like Lucas English was pulling his hair out at the laptop trying to find the perfect tune. Lucas is no stranger to world records and he came through in the clutch. Read More

World Record Eighth-Mile – 1969 Dodge Dart

April 19th, 2017

It has been said that you just can’t keep a good man down. Lyle Barnett is a living example of that. After being badly burned while campaigning his Corvette during Lights Out 6 (2015), Lyle was back in the saddle for Lights Out 8. 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

3-Wide Street Dig and Roll from Mexico

April 12th, 2017

This is how they do it south of the border – down (Nuevo) Mexico way. One could call this clip “Street Racing at its Best”. There are cars from all over the globe; Acura, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Dodge, Diamond Star Motors (DSM), Ford, Honda (rear-engine, 500hp?!), Nissan, and Subaru are all well represented here. Rolls The evening begins with a pair of supercharged C6 ‘Vettes locking horns in roll racing action. This turns out to be one of the closest races of the night. Next up, you have a couple of roll passes that feature a herd of the baddest Ford Read More

840HP Dodge Demon – Test Hit

Fiat Chrysler America (FCA) is set to raise the bar even higher in the area of high-performance stock production vehicles. The official announcement of the impending 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has sports car enthusiasts foaming at the mouth in anticipation of its release. The Demon will be the first performance machine ever offered with drag radials and the most powerful mass production vehicle ever made in the U.S. Not to be confused with the 707hp Hellcat, Dodge SRT has totally redesigned the propulsion system in the Demon and added a few new and innovative twists that should be thought Read More

2JZ Powered S10 Pickup Runs Sixes

April 10th, 2017

At Lights Out 8, down in South Georgia, there was certainly no shortage of S10 pickups . S10 pickup carcasses are everywhere, so it’s relatively easy to pick up a pickup and throw in an LS small block or even a big block and put down a pretty decent pass on the street or strip. Well, the owner of the truck featured in this video chose a slightly different path. Maybe there were no LS engines available in his neck of the woods, perhaps he is a V8-hater, or peradventure that he was going for a lightweight theme – I Read More
