Airstrip Attack – 800HP Volkswagen Golf

July 22nd, 2016

After cramming a 3.6-liter V6 (from a Passat) into this Golf, this thing is ready to spank some supercars on a closed airstrip. HRP Performance (Germany) put their brand of bullet proof engine modification to work under the hood of this very bad girl that gives the word fahrvergnügen (German for driving enjoyment) a while new meaning. An HRP kit, with a pair of turbochargers, gives this grocery-getter the extra get-up-and-go to run with the big boys. Despite not being a beast out of the hole (no smoke and no spin), this European nightmare manages to get down the track Read More

2200HP Camaro Takes 1300-Mile Road Trip

July 20th, 2016

Feel like a 1,300-mile road trip? How about in a turbo car that is pushing over 2,000hp? Now, try it with four-rounds of drag racing along the way? That’s exactly what Rocky Mountain Race Week 2016 entails for Doug Cline and his awesome orange 1969 Chevy Camaro. This car is in every way a street car – that is capable of posting 1/4-mile passes that dip into the 6-second range (over 200 mph). It is equipped with a 598 cubic-inch big block Chevy engine and a pair of Precision 94-millimeter turbochargers. Ride along as this journey winds through the Colorado Read More

Classic Camaro Posts New WR for Eighth-Mile

July 19th, 2016

Dewayne Mills in his Golden Gorilla Camaro has just established a new personal best and a world record for turbocharged cars on radial tires – in the 1/8-mile. This footage was shot during the Rage by the River Event; during the semi-finals and finals. The latter of which featured a $7,500 cash prize. After an outstanding weekend of racing, Dewayne and the boys find themselves running solo in the semi-final round. They proceed to post an eye-catching 3.79-second pass at 206.45 mph; that’s good enough to take the world record and move on to the finals. Check out the action Read More

9-Second Alpha 10 Huracan

July 18th, 2016

The staff at Alpha Performance has undertaken the task of trying to destroy their own Alpha 10 Huracan turbocharger kit – thus far with no success. First, they hit the road for the brutal 3,000-mile Gold Rush Rally; stopped by Pike’s Peak and ran the Tail of the Dragon. Through rigorous testing, the Alpha 10 kit performed without a hitch. Next, they went out to the drag strip and you can see the results here. The car ran consistent 9-second passes without fail. The Alpha 10 system utilizes the stock engine and requires only bolt-on installation. It features a pair Read More

Thunderous TT Chevy II Runs 7-Second Quarter-Mile

July 15th, 2016

Meet Larry Larson and his 1966 Chevy II Nova. This car holds the prestigious honor of being named the fastest street car in the world, for three years consecutively. Larson Race Cars has built dozens of top-tier drag cars and trucks but it seems like they always save the best for themselves – who can blame ‘em? Running in the Comp Eliminator (AA/AT) Class at Drag Week 2016, this Chevy is packing a Larson (Mike Moran) built 565-cubic inch big block with a set of 88-millimeter turbochargers. The Larson team manages a 7.17-second pass at 179 mph on this day but the Read More

Rocky Mountain Race Week – Blown Mustang

July 11th, 2016

In the epitome of “run what ya’ brung” racing, these teams (sometimes teams of one) are asked to compete in an event that encompasses 4 races in five days; on a 1,300-mile road trip. These teams begin with a full night of racing in Kearney, Nebraska before heading out to the next drag strip in Denver, Colorado (many drag cars with a trailer in tow). After Denver, these guys will move on to Pueblo, Colorado before turning around and driving back to Kearney, with a short stop in Great Bend, Kansas at the S.R.C.A. Dragstrip. Don’t miss Larry Larson in his twin Read More

1100HP Opel Kadett Street Beast

July 8th, 2016

Wow! Despite the fact that this tricked out Opel looks like a handful to get down the 1320, it is more than capable of being a daily driver and it is ‘tanning hyde’ on the streets of Stockholm. This cute little monster is hooking up like a champ on small tires as it whips radically modified Volvos and Audis with some degree of regularity. The Kadett has an LM7 Chevy mill under the hood with LS1 cylinder heads and an 80-millimeter Borg-Warner S480 forcing copious quantities of air through the intake. This stocky street bully may look odd but it Read More

1800HP 4WD Dodge Pickup

July 7th, 2016

Here is one for all the NHRDA fans out there. This 2007 Ram has undergone some serious modifications. Anyone who looks at it can tell that there has been a major weight reduction; then there are the 3 turbochargers. This thing is chugging down the 1/4-mile, making consistent passes in the low-to-mid 9-second range, leaving a cloud of black smoke along the way. It seems odd to see a full-size, long-bed, four-wheel drive pickup whipping Camaros and Mustangs but this truck has made it a habit. If this team can find a way to come out of the hole stronger, Read More

Street Grudge Match – Ludicrous Tesla vs. Vette Z06

July 6th, 2016

This is 1/8-mile dig racing and there’s cash on the line when this Tesla is called-out by BigKleib34 in his C6 Corvette Z06 with upgraded cylinder heads and camshaft. The Tesla makes short work of the ‘Vette before spanking a Fox Body Mustang – then the cops show up. After relocating to an undisclosed location (probably somewhere else in Mexico), a couple of capable Mitsubishi Evo sedans show up, along with a Porsche Turbo S. The Tesla is playing possum until the final race when it gets spanked by the second Evo. Check it out. NOTE: We neither condone nor Read More

3000HP Ego Mustang

July 5th, 2016

This crew has recently made the swap from a Fox Body to a New Edge Mustang. Among the things that have remained the same is the big block Chevrolet engine that is helping to lay down an astronomical amount of horsepower. Despite the capacity for making approximately 3,000hp, this New Edge ‘Stang is running in the small tire class at No Prep No Excuses – and making no excuses. The engine is a Pro Line 548 cubic-inch number with a pair of 94-millimeter turbochargers.  The transmission is a Power Glide and the car seems to be getting hooked up fairly Read More
