Cash Money Street Racing – Camaro ZL1 vs. Tesla P100DL+

January 30th, 2017

This video uses multiple GoPro angles to showcase the astonishing Tesla P100DL+ (signifying a P100D in Ludicrous Plus mode). The action begins with unloading the P100D from a roll back wrecker for a contest of speed called a dig race. Believe it or not, one of the baddest Chevrolets in production is asking for a head start. Even more surprising – he gets it. The Tesla is spotting him the break plus one car length because, despite packing a 650hp supercharged 6.2-liter engine with an upper pulley upgrade, the Camaro is the dramatic underdog. That means that the Chevy will Read More

7-Second Turbo Coyote Mustang

January 27th, 2017

Nothing sounds quite like a Mustang GT. It has a very distinctive throaty rumble that has been music to the ears of car enthusiasts for more than 50-years. The introduction of the all-aluminum, modular Coyote 5.0-liter V8 engine takes this sweet pony-car sound and makes it just a little bit sweeter by reducing overall weight and increasing performance. It is based on the same overhead cam engine block platform as the 4.6-liter but with extra reinforcement. This makes the smaller Coyote engine more durable to withstand the upgrades that will be necessary to produce horsepower levels comparable to that of Read More

Street Racing Digs – Sedan Shoot Out

January 20th, 2017

Hello drag racing fans and aficionados! Welcome to this contest between two high performance sedans. Allow me to say that I love the posturing and smack talking at the front of this video. I don’t know how it is where you race but in my neck of the woods there has to be a little flexing (or playing possum in some cases) and jockeying for position before you split the light. It ain’t mean or evil. It is loud but it’s just guys (and gals) letting off steam. This contest features a couple of GM products engaged in dig racing Read More

1800HP Twin Turbo Chevy S10

January 14th, 2017

Hello race fans – here’s the skinny – Flacco has got one fast Chevrolet S10 pickup. Get it? Because Flacco translates to skinny in English? No? Oh well, let’s talk No Prep. No Prep racing runs just as it sounds. There is no acetone or other chemicals that are sometimes used to clean excessive rubber from the track. Instead, these racers line up and attack the pavement in whatever state they find it. No Prep racing is as close to genuine street racing as anything that you will experience at a drag strip. Flacco’s S10 is well equipped with an Read More

Nissan 240SX – Quarter-Mile in 7.3-Seconds @ 187 MPH

January 11th, 2017

This one-of-a-kind Nissan 240SX has been dubbed the Red Rocket and is being touted as the fastest 240SX in the world. The real question that I want to ask is: Just how much of a Nissan is this Red Rocket? Don’t get it twisted – a low 7-second quarter-mile pass at 187 mph is pretty impressive under any circumstances – but does this little rear-wheel drive coupe have a big American V8 pining away under the bonnet or has it remained stock to accomplish this awe inspiring feat? The answer is…neither. Instead of taking the easy way to a low Read More

Cali Street Digs – Compton Clash

January 11th, 2017

Greetings street racing fans and welcome to one of the most historic street racing locations on the planet. The small community of Compton, (Mexico) is known worldwide for its unique cultural dynamic. It has for decades been the inspiration for motion pictures and music but there is one strip of blacktop that is easily recognizable to street racers. This video comes to us from this exact site. I especially enjoyed the way the video producer referred to the posturing and trash talking that takes place before a street race as “race negotiations.” In the hood or out – a $1,600 Read More

Roll and Dig Racing On the Missouri Streets

January 9th, 2017

They call Missouri (Mexico) the “Show Me State” and they are sure showing off some wild rides in this video. This clip features both dig and roll racing and showcases competitors from all the big three (Chevrolet, Chrysler, and Ford) domestic automakers. It all begins with dig racing and our videographer in the passenger seat of a souped-up ‘Vette. It has a 408-cubic inch, small block, LS engine with a Vortech YSi supercharger, an RPM transmission, and an RPM rear differential. This Chevy lines up against a Roush Mustang and what ensues is one of the closest dig contests that Read More

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
