8-Second FWD Volkswagen

January 6th, 2018

This is not a title that I would have anticipated writing. Feel the weight of those few words; a front-wheel drive Volkswagen capable of chewing through the quarter-mile in 8.5-seconds at 175 mph. It’s mind numbing. Billed as the quickest FWD VW in the world, this European import is making tons of horsepower with a 2.5-liter (5-cylinder) engine and a Precision 7275 turbocharger. This car blew the doors off the competition (and himself) on the way to making a huge mess on the track. It’s not often that you see a Volkswagen gap a Mustang while crushing its own world Read More

8-Second Quarter-Mile Chevy Silverado

January 4th, 2018

This video features a vehicle that combines two of my favorite things – a jaw-dropping quarter-mile monster and a pickup truck. Climb into the passenger seat of the Heavy Chevy and enjoy some terrific street hits as the owner/operator explains how he has built one of the baddest pickups ever. With its long wheel base and extended cab configuration, this beast is primed to tame street or strip.   The 2001 Chevrolet Silverado has been outfitted with an NPR 430 cubic-inch LSx engine. A Holley Dominator EFI system controls fuel delivery and a massive Garrett 98-millimeter GTX 5533R turbocharger is Read More

Corn Husker Dig Racing

December 29th, 2017

Those Midwestern farm boys (and girls) are at it again. They have parked the tractors and combines and thrown away the pitchforks. Now they are behind the wheels of some bad street racing iron and they have come together for a day of racing action. On hand are naturally aspirated cars, turbo cars, twin turbo cars, nitrous cars, and supercharged cars. There are plenty of Chevys and Fords; there is even a DSM and a crazy fast rotary powered Datsun (old Nissan). The one thing that all these racers have in common is their desire to take home all the Read More

7-Second Supra

December 21st, 2017

This video delivers what may be the baddest Toyota Supra ever built – and it remains streetable. This car is as clean as a pin and it turns out consistent 7-second (quarter-mile) passes at approximately 195 mph. Expect to see a 6-second elapsed time from this Supra in the very near future. The car is built by Real Street Performance using the best of everything it takes to go fast. One of the things that makes it suitable for every day driving is a wet sump, 3.2-liter, inline, 6-cylinder engine. Engine internals include a Brian Crower 90-millimeter billet crankshaft. The Read More

2JZ Toyota Corolla Drops Into the Fives

December 21st, 2017

I have to admit that when I think of a 5-second quarter-mile pass or trapping 240 mph, I ain’t really associating it with a Toyota Corolla. The geniuses at Mech-Tech don’t suffer from my limited vision. These guys have taken an econo-box Toyota and transformed it into a three-quarter chassis drag car that is simply mind blowing. An inline (3.2-liter) six-cylinder Toyota engine (2JZ) is the heart of this beast. It is built by Lazcano Racing Engines. A massive turbocharger is cramming copious amounts of air into the 2JZ and Jorge Juarbe acts as driver and (Microtech Tuners) tuner of Read More

ETS Evo X – Dual World Record Pass

December 20th, 2017

Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) and English Racing have collaborated on some amazing projects in the past and will undoubtedly continue to shock the world with their high-powered all-wheel drive turbo cars. World Record breaking Nissan GT-R passes have become a regular occurrence for this team but this clip features a horse of a different color (so to speak). This record buster is of the Diamond Star Motors (DSM) variety. It is an all-wheel drive creation and it is called an Evolution X (ten). It all begins with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that has been built with aluminum connecting rods. Unfortunately, Read More

King of NO PREP – Chevy S10

December 15th, 2017

Greetings drag racing enthusiasts! Allow me to introduce the King of NO PREP racing, Larry Larson and his beast of a compact pickup truck. Larry has attacked the grueling affair known as Rocky Mountain Race Week on eleven separate occasions and has never failed to complete what is possibly the most challenging test of endurance (for man and machine) in racing. Rocky Mountain Race Week consists of five days of NO PREP drag racing at four separate drag strips. It begins in Kearney, Nebraska then moves to Denver, Colorado. From Denver to Pueblo, Colorado. From Pueblo it’s over to Great Read More

Turbo Acura V8 Killer

December 11th, 2017

You can imagine our surprise. After all, it isn’t everyday that we pull up to an event like Street Car Takeover Phoenix (Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park) and find a front-wheel drive Acura Integra going on about quenching some V8 dreams. Even more to our amazement was the tiny four-cylinder engine underneath the hood. Before the day was done in Wild Horse Pass, we would discover that the fella’ with the biggest gun doesn’t always have the fastest bullet. The car was setup to campaign in the Front-Wheel Drive Class but a lack of FWD competitors resulted in a move Read More
