Low 7-Second Datsun Pickup

May 24th, 2017

Welcome drag racing fans on a videographical journey to the land down under. We are headed to Sydney, Australia for the Jamboree Event where we will be introduced to a ground pounding Datsun pickup with the unique combination of a massive turbocharger and a 4G63 Mitsubishi engine. Running in the Sub-Compact Class (because that’s what the Jamboree is about), this pretty Aussie racer tried her dearest to campaign this little Ute (Australian for sport utility vehicle) into 6-second territory. Take a look and see how it all shakes out! Coming into this event, the truck had posted a best E.T. Read More

WHITE ZOMBIE – 1967 Chevy II

May 24th, 2017

No, it doesn’t stumble through the streets mumbling monster mumbo-jumbo, nor does it thirst for the taste of human blood, but the WHITE ZOMBIE is one-hundred-percent scary! While we understand that the WHTE ZOMBUE will (one day  soon) be scary fast, the San Antonio Bounty Hunters No-Prep Event finds this monster of a drag car in need of a driver. The zombie’s intended wheel-man is away at a weekend wedding and didn’t make the trip. That puts the car’s owner behind the wheel and – let’s just say – it’s a good thing that nobody got hurt. The crew of Read More

Blown 1953 Corvette – Big Tire – No Prep

May 20th, 2017

This beast of a C1 Corvette just seems to suit No-Prep Drag Racing. It is an old school sports car with a massive blower poking up through the hood so what better place to show out than the Bounty Hunters No-Prep Grudge Nationals II. Even though our feature ride is sporting a Tim McAmis race car chassis, a Winger Racing engine, a set of big old racing slicks, and a giant blower, it still pulls off that classic muscle car look. What is even more impressive than the appearance of this car is the sound. This thing is making some Read More

900HP Twin Turbo 1963 Chevy C10

May 16th, 2017

Check out this beat up Chevy pickup. This thing looks like it drove through the ugly forest and hit every tree. This work truck is so ugly that it could make a freight train take a dirt road. It’s UGLY! Good thing that it ain’t how you look – it’s what you got under your hood. Under the imaginary hood, you will be privileged to feast your eyes upon a built 370 cubic-inch LQ9 engine with a stock crankshaft, Callie’s connecting rods, JE pistons, upgraded cylinder heads, and a custom ground camshaft. Forced air induction is left to a more Read More

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

1200HP Corvette – Godzilla Killa

May 10th, 2017

One doesn’t often see a modest Chevrolet Corvette walking away with the crown (Sport Class) in a roll racing event the size of TX2K17. It is even more unexpected to see such an occurrence when there are cars like the Nissan GT-R (Godzilla), Lamborghini Huracan, and the mighty Dodge Viper on hand. Add the fact that this C5 Vette is equipped with a manual transmission and you have a real phenomenon. This 2-seater is powered by a 408 cubic-inch GM small block and a massive turbocharger. The owner/operator (Ty) states that the car is capable of producing 1,200(ish)hp. Round 1 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

Stock Engine Viper World Record Half-Mile

April 14th, 2017

Those speed demons at Calvo Motorsports have done it again! These guys continue to push the limitations of top speed as they pertain to factory stock engines. If you are going to build a legacy of speed with stock hardware, what better place to start than the premier (arguably) high-performance coupe produced in the U.S. The Viper comes off the assembly line with a massive 8.0-liter V10 engine that is capable of producing more than 600hp. I am not absolutely sure about the rules for this particular class but I did hear the owner/driver talking about bolt-ons and a turbocharger. Read More

2JZ Powered S10 Pickup Runs Sixes

April 10th, 2017

At Lights Out 8, down in South Georgia, there was certainly no shortage of S10 pickups . S10 pickup carcasses are everywhere, so it’s relatively easy to pick up a pickup and throw in an LS small block or even a big block and put down a pretty decent pass on the street or strip. Well, the owner of the truck featured in this video chose a slightly different path. Maybe there were no LS engines available in his neck of the woods, perhaps he is a V8-hater, or peradventure that he was going for a lightweight theme – I Read More

1500HP 2JZ Corolla – GT-R Killer

April 7th, 2017

How bad has this got to suck? First, you pay over $100k for a high-performance Nissan GT-R, dump a bunch more cash in it to make it even faster, then carry it out to the drag strip. All sounds great so far, huh? So, you’re having a pretty good day, then you line up against an eighties Toyota Corolla Hatch. I mean the ‘Yota looks alright with its backyard graphics and big tires but you got this from start to finish, right? Wrong! The Toyota takes the hole shot from you and gaps your behind by several lengths! Ouch! What Read More
