1600HP Volkswagen VR12

July 27th, 2018

So, whadda’ ya’ get a guy that has two of everything? He already has two engines, two transmissions, two turbochargers, and two electrical systems. Sound like double trouble? Not if you are into tearing up the track in a very unique way. This VW GTI is skillfully equipped with a pair of VR6 engines (one in the back and another in the front). Each engine has its own GTX35 (67-millimeter) turbocharger and sequential transmission. Either engine can be engaged independent of the other when necessary. A frequent occurrence when the owner/operator is dropping the hammer in an all-out effort to Read More

True Street 1,100HP TT GTO

July 25th, 2018

Leather reclining seats, air conditioning, carpeted floors, and full door panels; sound like a luxury sports car? How about a full roll cage, drag radials, and 1,100hp? Now, that sounds like a race car. So, what is it? Is it a street car or a race car? Turns out that Louis Crower (Yep, that Crower) has built himself a very heavy (4,000-pound) Pontiac GTO that is the best of both worlds. It all begins with a KP Racing built LS3 engine. KP integrated billet main bearing caps, half-inch main studs, and a ton of Crower internals in the bottom and Read More

Rocky Mountain Race Week Winner Tina Pierce

July 19th, 2018

If pretty Tina Pierce looks familiar to you, it’s probably from Street Outlaws on the Discovery Channel. What will not be familiar  is the awesome looking new Chevrolet Colorado pickup that she is driving the thousand-or-so-miles of Rocky Mountain Race Week (RMRW). After a dramatic crash that left Tina’s previous ride in tatters, she opted to go with a big block engine and a pair of turbochargers (in the bed) of her new truck. The square-nosed Colorado provides the perfect first impression for any race truck and the rose-wine color is stunning. This is the maiden voyage for Tina’s new Read More

Cash Days – Longhorns vs. Sooners

July 18th, 2018

Whether it’s in the rodeo arena or on the football gridiron, inhabitants of the Lone Star State and those of the Sooner State just seem to try harder when they are competing against each other. Today the competition turns to street racing (in Mexico of course), where fourteen of the baddest street machines in the country have gathered for a single elimination tournament called Cash Days. Seven cars from Texas and another seven from Oklahoma are set to do battle in small tire trim for a Read More

He added a set of Drag Cartel 3.2 camshafts and a massive Precision 7685 turbocharger. A triple-disk Action clutch aids in shifting Read More

World Record Rear-Wheel Drive Viper

June 27th, 2018

Sal and the Viper could be the title of a best-selling children’s book but today it’s a story about a car enthusiast, his car enthusiast son, and the beast of a Dodge Viper that they have been developing for about a decade. Suddenly and unexpectedly, the commitment of this father and son will pay off at the Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack. You see, Sal Patel has never thought of himself as much of a half-mile racer. Furthermore, he feels like his car is much better suited for the quarter-mile and eighth-mile. Sal and crew have had a degree of success Read More

Mustang Boss 302 vs. Vette Z06 – Street Hits

June 26th, 2018

What’s better than street racing on the wide open interstates (of Mexico)? Why, roll racing 3-wide down the interstate into the cool night air of course. Theses competitive drivers know how to get down where the rubber meets the road. Their cars have been purpose-built for roll racing and the pilots are ready to put it all on the line. All that’s left is to fuel up and roll out. Our first contest is a triple play between a 620hp Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, a 635hp Cadillac CTS-V sedan, and a 570hp turbocharged Pontiac Trans Am. ZL1 FTW! Next, we have Read More

Sweet Pea – 10-Second Nova Sleeper

June 21st, 2018

In a perfect demonstration of “It ain’t how you look – it’s what you got under the hood” theology; this rusted-out and uglied-up Nova sedan can flat get down the quarter-mile in a hurry. The dominant theme of this clip is that this below average (looking) Nova is virtually indistinguishable from any other oil dripping, brake squealing, gas guzzling grocery getter going about its daily grind. Here’s what makes this Chevy so special: A 6.0-liter Chevy truck engine has been outfitted with a VS Racing 80-millimeter turbocharger and a Coleman Performance (you’ll get that when you watch the video) ice Read More
