Drag Race – Mercedes AMG GT S vs. Audi R8 V10

January 6th, 2017

Hello drag racing enthusiasts and welcome to an all out half-mile drag race between two premium German production sports cars. A few weeks ago, we were treated to a similar video which pitted the Audi R8 V10 against the Audi R8 V10 Plus and, as expected the Plus won out by a very narrow margin. So, what would happen if we lined the Audi R8 V10 up against another similarly equipped German luxury sports coupe? The R8’s competition is no less than the long and sleek Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S. Both cars are built with meticulous care and precision engineering Read More

Top 10 Street Sleepers of 2016

December 23rd, 2016

There is something particularly satisfying about building a car that can perform on the street without looking like it. This is called a “street sleeper” and it has been called a motorized version of the pool hustler. This video gives us a look at 10 of the baddest and most surprising street sleepers of 2016. Check out this turbocharged Honda Civic. With a built K20 and a massive turbocharger, this sub compact is knocking off Lamborghinis on the street. The turbo Silverado looks factory but don’t press your luck with this single cab pickup. With a big turbo and a Read More

2016 North Carolina Cash Days

December 21st, 2016

This video features at least two things that I hold near and dear: street racing and the beautiful state of North Carolina. The Tar Heel State has always held a special place in my heart, with its densely wooded mountains in the west and stunning beaches in the east, but experiencing the Tail of the Dragon (on my modified Harley Davidson Road King bagger) took it to a whole different level. Between that, some wonderful white whiskey (for medicinal purposes and in moderation), and some of the friendliest folks on earth, I can’t help but go back time and time Read More

850HP Dodge Challenger Hellcat vs Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4

December 20th, 2016

Watch a 800HP Dodge Challenger Hellcat race a stock Lamborghini Huracan down the 1/4 mile at the November StreetCarDrags.com Event.  It’s a close race decided by just a fraction of a second!

GT-R Tackles Huracan on the Street

December 20th, 2016

What would you do for fun if you lived in a place where the roads were flat and straight – as far as the eye could see? Sounds like a street racer’s paradise to me. Why not buy a couple of the most elite factory supercars on the planet and line them up for some dig racing action? That’s what I want for Christmas, Santa! Featured in this video are the Nissan GT-R and the Lamborghini Huracan. The Nissan is configured with front-engine and all-wheel drive, while the Lamborghini rocks a mid-engine setup that can be had with standard rear-wheel Read More

World’s Fastest – 7-Second – DSM

December 17th, 2016

The Red Demon is being billed as the World’s Fastest All-Wheel Drive Car and the World’s Fastest Diamond Star Motors (DSM) car. It is built and campaigned by Boostin Performance (BP) out of Hoffman Estates, Illinois. The BP team gets an opportunity to display their extraordinary brand of resiliency when the engine block literally splits in half during testing; pulling the main bearing studs out in the process. That’s about as broken as an engine block can get but this skilled crew ain’t quite ready to fly this Eagle back in the trailer yet. They work through the night and manage to Read More

Parking Lot Drags – Small Tire

December 15th, 2016

Anyone who has ever raced in a parking can attest to the fact that it can be treacherous. This track, on this weekend, was possibly one of the most dangerous that I have ever seen. First of all, the track was an eighth-mile uphill – couldn’t find a flat place in Houston, Texas? Next, the drag strip dead-headed into a convention center. What’s up with that? Drag cars have enough problems stopping (hence the parachute) so why throw salt in the wound by restricting the landing strip to an area the width of a four-lane road? Finally, traction was nonexistent Read More

Street Dig and Roll – Impala SS vs. Hyundai Genesis

December 15th, 2016

This clip brings us a street battle (dig and roll racing) between a modified import coupe and a factory stock domestic sedan. These kinds of contests take place every day down Mexico way, where street racing is king. The rear-wheel drive Hyundai Genesis coupe is a mutated version of the powerful V8 powered Korean sedan of the same name. While it is offered with a 348hp V6, this car was equipped with a 2.0-liter turbo engine with an intercooler. It also has been upgraded with aftermarket parts like a high-performance tuner, a cold air intake setup, and a larger turbocharger. Read More

8-Second Trans Am Crowned King of the Corn

December 13th, 2016

This ain’t candy-corn it’s King of the Corn, coming at you from (where else?) Kearney, Nebraska. The Pontiac Trans Am known as FireChicken is back on radials and looking to take home the crown (and $10K) in the Street Racer Class. With husband and wife team (Jacob and Anastasia Hachinski) handling the tuning and driving duties, the FireChicken ain’t scared of nobody and they’re in it for the bucks – not the clucks. Okay, enough with the chicken allusions, let’s get down to some drag racing! Since winning their class at Rocky Mountain Race Week, (driver) Jacob and (tuner) Anastasia, Read More

You Jump – You Pay – Civic vs. Mustang

December 10th, 2016

This is about as raw as it gets! It’s street racing (of the dig variety) from down south of the border in Old Mexico and there is plenty of trash talking and other extracurricular activities to make for an interesting video. This is a three-fold grudge match between import and domestic, front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive, and nitrous and turbo and there is certainly no love lost between either of these three contingencies. The rules are simple; run what ya’ brung in head-up single race action with a human starter and a video spotter on each end. Cut the light Read More
