Whoa! 7-Second V6 Firebird?

February 5th, 2016

Did you say that this clip shows a 7-second V6 powered Pontiac Firebird? How can that be? Well, you start with a 3.8-liter Buick engine (from an 80s GTA) and then you add a pair of 62-millimeter ATP turbos. This eye-catching Pearl White ‘Bird has a unique sound that captured the imaginations of everyone at the Street Car Takeover in Phoenix. The first pass is of the roll racing variety. The Firebird bumps up against a bodacious TT ’68 Camaro that walks away easily. Next he spanks a late-model Camaro with only bolt-on modifications in the eighth-mile. There’s lots of Read More

Nasty 2200HP Camaro Z28

January 29th, 2016

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water – enter this twin turbocharged big block Camaro Z28. It is a true predator. The engine is a 509-cubic-inch big block (with AFR 357 cylinder heads) and it is force fed air by a pair of 4788 88-millimeter turbochargers. A Rossler transmission and four-link rear suspension help transfer power to the rear wheels. An inventive dual-fuel tank setup allows the car to cruise to the track in style. Running in the unlimited class, this mighty muscle car lays down a 4.8 in the eighth-mile at Street Car Read More

1200HP TT Stretchy Truck

January 26th, 2016

Take a gander at this stretched out Chevrolet S10 extended cab pickup. This custom creation is over 20-feet long and is configured with a mid-engine setup that allows for some really positive hookups. This creature gets some quality passes in, including a 9.37 @ 155 mph and a 9.28 @ 154, before suffering from mechanical difficulties that wouldn’t permit him to continue. This radical ride features a pair of Borg Warner S400 sx3 82-millimeter turbochargers that force copious amounts of air into a built 580-cubic -inch Big Block Chevy motor. The setup is good for 1,200hp (on 22-psi of boost) Read More

Twin Turbo S10 Blazer Runs 8.4 @ 160 MPH

January 22nd, 2016

What can you do with a snail of a 1984 Chevrolet S10 Blazer? You can start by snatching out the V6 and cramming the engine bay full of a massive 6.0-liter (LS) engine with a 408-cubic-inch stroker kit and a set of Pro-Filer cylinder heads. Add insult to injury by bolting on a pair of Borg Warner 366 turbochargers then drive to Rocky Mountain Drag Week 2015. This guy shows up looking to set a new personal record in the quarter-mile. He does just that on day four in Denver, Colorado with an 8.44 @ 160.58 mph. This is a Read More

9-Second Turbo Lexus

January 18th, 2016

Now you can have it all! This video brings us a luxurious Lexus LS300 that can dart through the 1320 in only 9.32-seconds at 149 mph. This thing smokes tires like they’re going out of style and you have to see the parking lot burnouts (with a trailer attached, no less). It all begins with a built 3.0-liter 2JZ engine with upgraded pistons from Combustion Technologies; now add a mammoth Precision 7675 turbocharger. As if that weren’t enough, toss in a 125 shot of nitrous oxide and presto – you’ve got 1,000whp. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a Read More

1000-Mile Road Trip for 6-Second PROMOD Car

January 12th, 2016

You certainly don’t expect to see a full-blown PROMOD car pulling a trailer the 1,000-miles between drag racing facilities but that’s exactly what is happening on this video. This unique Drag Week event demands that contestants make the trip in the cars they plan to run. Tom Bailey (and crew) not only made the trip in their radical PROMOD ’69 Camaro but they also managed to pull off a big win in the ultra competitive Unlimited Class. This thing is equipped with a 615-cubic-inch engine and a pair of 98-millimeter turbos. Despite having a few hiccups along the way (on and Read More

World’s Fastest S2000 Runs 7.17 @ 192 MPH

December 8th, 2015

This clip brings us the world record setting 1/4-mile run of a Honda S2000. This coupe is built, tuned, and campaigned by the gang at Real St. It is sporting a set of 10.5-inch wide racing slicks and this thing really hooks up and blasts down the track. I know it is Real St. but you really don’t want to go up against this import on the street – or do you? Believe it or not, this Honda is still equipped with a 2.2-liter inline four-cylinder (F22C) engine built by Inline PRO. It has also been upgraded with an 82-millimeter Precision turbocharger. The Read More

New GT-R Half-Mile World Record

November 30th, 2015

The place is Texas and the event is WannaGoFast2015. The Nissan GT-R is a familiar one. It is campaigned by T1 Racing Development and the contest in question is the standing half-mile. You don’t want to miss this clip because it includes a world record setting pass (half-mile GT-R) at 235.6 mph. This shatters the previous record and narrowly misses the overall record held by Underground Racing. Propulsion for the current record holding coupe comes from a 3.8-liter stock displacement V6 engine with a custom billet crankshaft, custom billet pistons, and aluminum connecting rods. Forced air induction is achieved using Read More

Twin-Turbo 5.3-liter Nova Runs 8-Second Quarter-Mile

November 24th, 2015

Nathan Shaw of Lakeville, Minnesota has built himself a great little street/strip car. It has a dandy paint job that appears black under certain light conditions and green in others. The car is a 1971 Chevrolet Nova and it was on display during One Guy’s Garage Drag Week; more importantly, he laid down an 8.63 1/4-mile pass @ 157.91 mph. Nathan’s Nova is well equipped with an all-aluminum 2008 5.3-liter Chevy block with Wiseco pistons, Callie’s connecting rods, a stock crankshaft, ARP hardware, and TFS 220 cylinder heads. Air induction is of the forced variety and features a pair of Read More

November 18th, 2015

Underground Racing is on the cutting edge in turbocharged high-performance technology and they proved it again at the WannaGOFAST Texas 1/2-mile event in Sulpher Springs, Texas. This awesome looking twin-turbocharged Lamborghini Huracan (driven by KC Howeth) posted a world record-setting speed of 238.6 mph; besting the old record by nearly 4 mph! The previous record holder was Gidi Chamdi and he was also piloting an Underground Racing prepared Lamborghini when he set it. Gidi’s car is a Superlegarra and we know that he’ll be back shortly to carry out his next move in this high-speed battle of one-ups-manship. The Lime Read More
