Nasty 1650HP Blown Cutlass

July 1st, 2016

This ain’t yo’ grandaddy’s Oldsmobile! Black Beauty is running in the small tire (275) class with that big ol’ blower poking outta the hood. This Cutlass looks great and sounds even better. The driver has a few problems coming out of the hole but comes back strong when he gets the car headed in the right direction. Don’t worry driver, more passes will likely cure this disease. This bad girl is running a 516-cubic-inch Chevy engine with a Littlefield 1071 blower and it’s an alcohol burner. It’s got a three-piece Powerglide transmission with a PTC 10-inch ProMod converter and she’s Read More

Twin Turbo Chevy Powered Mustang

June 29th, 2016

You read it right – this great looking blue Ford Mustang Boss is now the CEO. After replacing the meager Ford mill with a massive 568-cubic-inch monster Chevrolet big block, this Mustang commands respect on any track. In addition to the built big block, this blue beauty has a pair of Garrett GT 4788 turbos and a 2-speed TH400 transmission. Running 26-inch tires, in the Gangster Class at King of the Streets (Chicago), this Ford made its way all the way from Arkansas despite losing a back glass in the previous weekend’s racing.

Single Elimination Street Racing

June 27th, 2016

Take a gander at some old school, single elimination-style street racing, on a deserted 2-lane country road (the bales of hay were my only clue). The preliminary round features a Corvette and a first-generation Mustang. The potent Ford gets the hole-shot but can’t seem to get hooked up on the gear changes. The ‘Vette claims the victory and moves on. Next, we have a Cadillac CTS-V vs. a GenV Mustang. The Caddy pulls the Ford throughout and takes a first round win. Now, we’re on to a contest between a nitrous C6 Corvette and a nitrous Fox body Mustang – Read More

Corvette Z06 with Rear Mount Turbo

June 24th, 2016

This is another turbocharged Z06 Corvette – with a unique twist. Instead of the run-of-the-mill front mounted, flow-through turbo, this ‘Vette has the turbo mounted in the rear. This design helps to remove some heat from the engine compartment. The turbocharger is connected to the exhaust near the outlets and an air-to-water intercooler is mounted in the trunk, almost directly above the turbocharger. A second heat-exchanger is located in front of the radiator. This car is still in the developmental stages and already running in the 9-second range. With a few more events under their belt, this team figures to Read More

It don’t come out of the hole as fast as some but it manages to get down the 1320 in good time – good Read More

Corvette Z06 vs. Old School Turbo Nova

June 21st, 2016

This clip shows us a classic battle between a Gen III Nova and a late model Corvette Z06. Besting a Z06 in the 1/4-mile is a monumental task for any overweight muscle car and serious bolt-on modifications (to the ‘Vette) just serve to make matters worse. To even up the competition, the ’73 Nova is equipped with a late model Chevy LS engine and a turbocharger. It looks awesome with that low slung stance that is so typical of this era of Novas. It also has a full roll cage and a TH400 automatic transmission. There’s another close race between the Read More

Tesla Model S P85D vs P90D Ludicrous Drag and Roll Races

June 18th, 2016

It’s a race many Tesla owners have been waiting for, a Tesla P90D with the $10,000 optional Ludicrous mode from the factory vs a Tesla P85D that has been upgraded from Insane mode to Ludicrous mode at a Tesla service center a cost of $5,000.  The reasoning behind the less expensive upgrade option for existing P85D owners was because the P90D with Ludicrous mode came out so quickly after the P85D with Insane mode leaving early adopters who spent big $$ on the P85D behind. While Tesla states that an upgraded P85D with Ludicrous isn’t as quick as the P90D with Ludicrous the Read More
