Cadillac Style – CTS-V Posts a 10-Second Quarter-Mile

November 5th, 2015

Cadillac with drag radials or not, if you sport a personalized tag plate the reads “IWALKU” then you better have something under the hood. As you can see in this video, this guy has it in spades. If you have never seen the likes of a Cadillac dogging out Camaros and Mustangs, then you’ll definitely want to see his clip. IWALKU lays down three sub 11-second passes (10.52 @ 131, 10.54 @ 130, and 10.57 @ 130) in one night of dig racing at the local track – that ain’t too shabby by any standards. The CTS-V’s running a stock Read More

Trailer Trash LS Malibu Runs 8.90 Quarter-Mile

November 4th, 2015

Building a drag car on a budget ain’t pretty. Building a turbocharged drag car on a budget can get downright ugly. This Malibu may be ugly but the time slips keep getting prettier with each pass. Sure the paint job is a mess, the wheels are mismatched, and the interior is ratty but this Chevy managed to dive down into the eights, putting up an 8.90-second 1/4-mile pass at 150.8 mph. The engine is a stock Chevrolet 5.3-liter LS with a stock crankshaft and cylinder heads. It does have upgraded connecting rods, wrist pins, and pistons. A Borg Warner 88-millimeter 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

Hypercar Shootout from the U.K.

October 30th, 2015

This clip comes to you from the iconic Santa Pod Raceway in Wellington, England. It features three of the most extraordinary supercars on the planet. From Italy we have the Ferrari La Ferrari. It boasts a fighter jet inspired profile and 950hp. The La Ferrari’s 789hp 6.3-liter V12 internal combustion engine gets a 161hp boost from an electric motor and it costs around $1.4-million. From Germany we have the Porsche 918 Spyder with 887hp and a 211 mph top-speed. It costs $1-million. Finally, from merry old England, the McLaren P1; it gets its 903hp from a 3.8-liter “petrol” engine and Read More

Twin Turbo V8 Powered Honda Civic

October 29th, 2015

After four-years Jeff Lutz Jr. finally got to campaign his CRAZY 1989 Honda Civic during Drag Week 2015. This highly modified import has garnered some degree of internet fame during the last few years. Weighing only 2,300-pounds, this car can already sprint through the 1320 in the 7-second range and we expect some really special things once Jeff gets the boost tuned in. No more v-tec for this Civic. A tube chassis supports a massive 434-cubic-inch-diameter V8 Vinson Race engine with a pair of Precision 76-millimeter turbos (good for 1,000hp!). Jeff and the crew fought some headaches during Drag Week 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

2500HP AMC Puts Down 6.78-Second Quarter-Mile Pass @ 210 MPH

October 27th, 2015

In a virtual sea of awe inspiring automobiles, this nasty AMC Javelin (owned and operated by Bryant Goldstone) really stands out. The five-days of Drag Week 2015 is a brutal proving ground for any drag racer but this 2,500hp behemoth averaged 6-second passes over the entire five-days of racing on four separate tracks – that’s pretty amazing. Campaigning in the Ultimate Iron Class, this American classic is well equipped with a 572-cubic-inch Ultra-Tech Racing engine and a pair of Precision 88-millimeter turbochargers. This clip depicts the mighty Mopar in some stunning heads-up dig racing. The first pass nets a 6.98-second Read More

Street Racing – New Mexico Style

October 23rd, 2015

This video is over 6-minutes of heads-up dig (and roll) racing on the streets of New Mexico. All the likely suspects are present and the action is “muy caliente”. Here are some of the highlights from racing into the New Mexico night. A 740hp 2004 Subaru WRX STi with a Precision 6466 turbocharger destroys a 600hp WRX STi. The Terminator Mustang Cobra takes apart a 700hp all-wheel drive Honda Civic, a 400hp Dodge Neon, and gives a 750hp Mitsubishi Evo a good run for his money. A 600hp twin turbocharged Infiniti G35 goes against a 630hp Cadillac CTS-V and a Read More

180 MPH Street Race – GT-R vs CBR1000

October 22nd, 2015

In a contest of speed between a motorcycle and a car, my first instinct is to say that the bike will win. This logic typically proves sound, particularly when the bike is a stretched Honda CBR1000RR. The Honda is capable of going from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.5-seconds and can reach 100 mph in only 6.5-seconds, so what kind of car could touch it in a street race? Let’s take a look. A car that is nick-named after a creature known to terrorize and destroy large cities must certainly be able to hold its own on the streets. Read More

Dig Racing from Atlanta – Corvette Z06 vs Lambo, GT-R & Hellcat

October 21st, 2015

If what this ‘Vette does to the competition is an example of Southern hospitality – then I don’t believe I’ll have any – thanks anyhow. The Chevrolet C6 Corvette Z06 rolls off the assembly line with a 505hp 7.0-liter LS7 with titanium alloy connecting rods and a dry sump oiling system. This particular car has been treated to a camshaft upgrade, a high-flow intake manifold, and a nitrous kit. No estimated horsepower rating has been made available at this time. You certainly don’t expect a $65k Chevy to spank a $240k Lamborghini Gallardo but that is exactly what happens at Read More
