Fox Body Grudge Race – Beater Bomb vs. Torch 2.0

January 11th, 2018

This video treats us to a look at a bad little Fox Body Mustang that is known as the Torch 2.o. Although exact equipment specifications are kept close to the vest, it has been determined that the nitrous burning engine in this Mustang is a small block LS (Chevy) based V8. How about them apples? Footage from several dragstrips and multiple events (Small Tire Class) portrays the Torch 2.0 reeking havoc on the competition. The first stop is at the Ice Cream Cruise and the first victim is a classic Ford Falcon. After a small catfish out of the hole, Read More

1957 Chevy Wagon 8-Second Beast

January 11th, 2018

So, we caught up with Richie Crampton – NHRA Top Fuel Driver – during Hot Rod Drag Week. He allowed us to have a look at his unique 1957 Chevrolet Wagon (complete with a full tube 6.5 chrome-moly chassis and functional luggage rack) and told us a bit about the car. This car yields credence to the saying, “It ain’t how you look – it’s what you have under the hood.” In a day when you are accustomed to seeing cars that have been skillfully painted so that they resemble a barn (or pasture) find; with a rusted and faded Read More

No Prep Camaro – Street and Strip Hits

January 11th, 2018

It isn’t every day that you see a video which gives you (class dominating) NO PREP race footage of a vehicle then yields access to the passenger seat of the same vehicle for some white knuckle street hits. Ryan Miller has managed to build himself one of the nastiest two-step turbo cars that you will ever see. Our camera guy caught Ryan and his Gen IV Camaro at the I-29 Dragway during The Shop Inc NO PREP Series. He was kicking tail and taking names in the Drag Radial Class and making it look easy. Aside from a few double-wheelies, Read More

860HP Honda Civic – Tech Line and Drags

January 10th, 2018

Greetings drag racing fans and welcome to a a night of  “run whacha brung” drag racing action at the Irwindale Event Center (⅛-mile) in sunny California. Tonight we are joined by the guys from HighEnd Autosports and their front-wheel drive Honda Civic race car. This turbocharged sport sedan is equipped with everything it takes to line up and put down a solid pass on the street or strip. After getting the Honda on the trailer and heading out to Irwindale, the guys find themselves a bit behind the eight-ball with a ton of competitors ahead of them in the tech Read More

BMW vs. Chevy vs. Ford vs. Nissan – Street Hits

January 7th, 2018

Greetings street racing aficionados and racing fans of every genre. Welcome to the coldest night of street racing ever documented in Mexico (maybe). You are in for a real treat with this clip as a very diverse group of cars line up for street digs and rolls. These guys (and girls) have built vehicles that are capable of firing out of the hole or dominating from the roll. Let’s check out the footage as the action heats up: Our first pair of competitors are a BMW 335i with full bolt-ons and a performance tune (running E85 fuel) against a Pontiac Read More

8-Second FWD Volkswagen

January 6th, 2018

This is not a title that I would have anticipated writing. Feel the weight of those few words; a front-wheel drive Volkswagen capable of chewing through the quarter-mile in 8.5-seconds at 175 mph. It’s mind numbing. Billed as the quickest FWD VW in the world, this European import is making tons of horsepower with a 2.5-liter (5-cylinder) engine and a Precision 7275 turbocharger. This car blew the doors off the competition (and himself) on the way to making a huge mess on the track. It’s not often that you see a Volkswagen gap a Mustang while crushing its own world Read More

8-Second Quarter-Mile Chevy Silverado

January 4th, 2018

This video features a vehicle that combines two of my favorite things – a jaw-dropping quarter-mile monster and a pickup truck. Climb into the passenger seat of the Heavy Chevy and enjoy some terrific street hits as the owner/operator explains how he has built one of the baddest pickups ever. With its long wheel base and extended cab configuration, this beast is primed to tame street or strip.   The 2001 Chevrolet Silverado has been outfitted with an NPR 430 cubic-inch LSx engine. A Holley Dominator EFI system controls fuel delivery and a massive Garrett 98-millimeter GTX 5533R turbocharger is Read More

Corn Husker Dig Racing

December 29th, 2017

Those Midwestern farm boys (and girls) are at it again. They have parked the tractors and combines and thrown away the pitchforks. Now they are behind the wheels of some bad street racing iron and they have come together for a day of racing action. On hand are naturally aspirated cars, turbo cars, twin turbo cars, nitrous cars, and supercharged cars. There are plenty of Chevys and Fords; there is even a DSM and a crazy fast rotary powered Datsun (old Nissan). The one thing that all these racers have in common is their desire to take home all the Read More
