2200HP TT Big Block Mazda RX7

May 12th, 2017

Do you like surprises? If you do, then you’ll love this tricked out Mazda RX7. Never mind the awesome emerald green paint job. Sure, it looks great but the real treat is under the hood. It is full to the brim under there with a giant 555 cubic-inch Chevrolet big block and a pair of massive Garrett 88-millimeter turbochargers. Talk about a shocking revelation! This car is capable of producing an estimated 2,200hp (the dyno can only register a maximum of 2,000hp). The green machine just hooks up and goes straight down the track – every time. It has posted Read More

Afternoon Delight – KC Street Digs

May 5th, 2017

Honestly, I can count on one finger the number of times that I have been involved in street digs while the sun was up. Let’s face it, most street racing takes place under cover of darkness and it’s a lot of fun that way. Having that said; this Cash Days dig racing event from Kansas City (Mexico) was refreshing because you can see a lot more detail inside the cockpit of these complex machines. Have a gander for yourself. As usual, this is single elimination, winner take all fun. You can’t jump the light or cross the center line or Read More

World’s Quickest Jeep Wrangler

May 3rd, 2017

I’m not going to lie and say that I never did it. I am just as guilty as this guy but for a whole different set of reasons. When I crammed an LS platform V8 and a supercharger into my first Wrangler, I did it to get to the top of the mountain faster than the other guy. There were some giant mud tires and lots of ground clearance involved. It was a great weekend toy but of a whole different variety. This guy has outfitted his Jeep with drag radials and eliminated the ground clearance but maximum power is still Read More

Turbo Coyote Mustang – 7-Second Quarter-Mile

May 1st, 2017

Despite the multitude of spectacular machines that turned out for Street Cat Takeover in Orlando, Florida, this Mustang stood apart from the crowd. In the first place, the owner was registered in three separate classes – the Roll Racing Class, the LSx vs Modular Engine Class (the Coyote engine is a modular engine), and the ultra-competitive Street Racer Class. In the second place, the Mustang featured in this video posted an event record pass of 7.53-seconds @ 187.81 mph (in the Street Racer Class). This was also an all-time best E.T. and top speed for this car and crew. Thirdly, Read More

Making a Four-Wheeled Honda Fast

April 28th, 2017

The owner of the Honda S2000 featured in this video has a desire to help his fellow import owners. He wants to show us all how to make our import street and strip cars get down the track a lot faster. He accomplishes his mission within the first 30-seconds of the clip but you will want to stay for the hot drag racing action. This post is coming at you from beautiful, sunny Orlando, Florida (east coast home of Mickey Mouse) and the Street Car Takeover. As soon as the hood on the bright red Honda is opened, anyone can Read More

Street Racing Cowboy Style

April 27th, 2017

This well produced clip documents a night of competitive dig racing on the streets of Dallas/Fort Worth (Mexico, of course). It’s called Mini Cash Days and the buy-in is $100 per car with a 10-car field. It’s winner take all (actually 80-percent) and the action is single elimination with the losers in each round going back on the trailer. Lots of great looking street racers showed up for this night of street racing. It’s mostly Chevys and Fords but there is a particularly impressive LSX swapped Datsun 300Z and a couple of Cadillacs – you gotta see this one. When Read More

Climb on board the Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) Nissan GT-R and let Lucas English (of English Racing) take you step-by-step through a 1/4-mile pass.

He shows you what happens as he and the English Racing team try to best Giidi as the quickest GT-R on the planet. This is no exhibition race, drag racing fans, it’s for all the marbles and this video puts you in the passenger seat Read More

Classic Camaro Packs Giant TT Punch

April 25th, 2017

The only thing better than a great looking classic Chevrolet Camaro is a great looking classic Camaro that is capable of running some consistent low E.T.s in the 1/8-mile. This car fills that bill. Seriously, this car hooks up as proficiently and consistently as any car I have ever seen – straight out of the hole and right down the track like it’s on a rail. It is truly a credit to the tuner and the entire crew. The only complaints we heard were from little kids. It seems that every time the Camaro made a pass, all the air Read More

Evo X World Record Quarter-Mile

April 22nd, 2017

Hello drag racing fans and speed aficionados of every variety. Join me in congratulating Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) and English Racing as they (once again) shatter the world record 1/4-mile with a pass of 8.48-seconds @ 164.1 mph. The crew had the little sedan running in the 8.5-second range the entire event (TX2K17) and finally hit the right spot for a blow out pass in the latter stages. It seemed like Lucas English was pulling his hair out at the laptop trying to find the perfect tune. Lucas is no stranger to world records and he came through in the clutch. Read More

World Record Eighth-Mile – 1969 Dodge Dart

April 19th, 2017

It has been said that you just can’t keep a good man down. Lyle Barnett is a living example of that. After being badly burned while campaigning his Corvette during Lights Out 6 (2015), Lyle was back in the saddle for Lights Out 8. What took place there will be forever etched in the annals of drag racing history. Some might ask why Lyle would ever get back into a race car. Those people wouldn’t understand that inside him beats the heart of a drag racer. After a long recovery, Lyle climbed behind the wheel of Jason Digby’s 1969 Dodge Read More
