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).

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

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

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

Nasty 1650HP Blown Cutlass

July 1st, 2016

This ain’t yo’ grandaddy’s Oldsmobile! Black Beauty is running in the small tire (275) class with that big ol’ blower poking outta the hood. This Cutlass looks great and sounds even better. The driver has a few problems coming out of the hole but comes back strong when he gets the car headed in the right direction. Don’t worry driver, more passes will likely cure this disease. This bad girl is running a 516-cubic-inch Chevy engine with a Littlefield 1071 blower and it’s an alcohol burner. It’s got a three-piece Powerglide transmission with a PTC 10-inch ProMod converter and she’s Read More

1500HP Bugatti Chiron at Goodwood

June 30th, 2016

Get a load of this awesome (looking and sounding) 1500hp Bugatti Chiron as it manipulates the thin straits of legendary Goodwood Raceway. Amid a field that included every kind of exotic supercar that you can imagine, this beauty still managed to stand out. It is designed to be an improved replacement for the Veyron. An 8.0-liter, 16-cylinder engine utilizes four turbochargers to develop 1,500hp and 1,180 lb.-ft. of torque. The Chiron can rocket from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.5-seconds. The electronically controlled top speed is 261 mph and the price tag is – brace yourself – approximately $2.6-million.

Twin Turbo Chevy Powered Mustang

June 29th, 2016

You read it right – this great looking blue Ford Mustang Boss is now the CEO. After replacing the meager Ford mill with a massive 568-cubic-inch monster Chevrolet big block, this Mustang commands respect on any track. In addition to the built big block, this blue beauty has a pair of Garrett GT 4788 turbos and a 2-speed TH400 transmission. Running 26-inch tires, in the Gangster Class at King of the Streets (Chicago), this Ford made its way all the way from Arkansas despite losing a back glass in the previous weekend’s racing. He takes out a pair of Mustangs Read More

Corvette Z06 with Rear Mount Turbo

June 24th, 2016

This is another turbocharged Z06 Corvette – with a unique twist. Instead of the run-of-the-mill front mounted, flow-through turbo, this ‘Vette has the turbo mounted in the rear. This design helps to remove some heat from the engine compartment. The turbocharger is connected to the exhaust near the outlets and an air-to-water intercooler is mounted in the trunk, almost directly above the turbocharger. A second heat-exchanger is located in front of the radiator. This car is still in the developmental stages and already running in the 9-second range. With a few more events under their belt, this team figures to Read More
