Street Racing – Cali Style

May 16th, 2017

This is how it’s done in the Golden State. They are rolling them out on the interstate and running them like wildfire! A gathering of cars such as this virtually demands that a race ensue. It matters not where they meet; just that inside the chest of every driver beats the heart of a competitor. This time they meet on the streets – the streets of La-La Land – Los Angeles (Mexico), that is. There are several Nissans (of the GT-R variety), a 2.0-liter Evo (650hp) building 40 psi of boost, a stock (LS2) motor ‘Vette (660hp) with a V1 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

Afternoon Delight – KC Street Digs

May 5th, 2017

Honestly, I can count on one finger the number of times that I have been involved in street digs while the sun was up. Let’s face it, most street racing takes place under cover of darkness and it’s a lot of fun that way. Having that said; this Cash Days dig racing event from Kansas City (Mexico) was refreshing because you can see a lot more detail inside the cockpit of these complex machines. Have a gander for yourself. As usual, this is single elimination, winner take all fun. You can’t jump the light or cross the center line or 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

Turbo Coyote Mustang – 7-Second Quarter-Mile

May 1st, 2017

Despite the multitude of spectacular machines that turned out for Street Cat Takeover in Orlando, Florida, this Mustang stood apart from the crowd. In the first place, the owner was registered in three separate classes – the Roll Racing Class, the LSx vs Modular Engine Class (the Coyote engine is a modular engine), and the ultra-competitive Street Racer Class. In the second place, the Mustang featured in this video posted an event record pass of 7.53-seconds @ 187.81 mph (in the Street Racer Class). This was also an all-time best E.T. and top speed for this car and crew. Thirdly, Read More

Roll Racing – 2JZ Mazda RX7 vs. Blown Cobra Mustang

April 28th, 2017

As much as I love, respect, and support my friends in the law enforcement community, if I am racing on the interstate and a cruiser pulls into my peripheral, I might draw up so tight that the seat cover would have to be surgically removed. My insurance guy would draw up even tighter. Not so on this night of roll racing action, when Dick Tracy pulls alongside and openly issues a challenge over the public address system. Seriously, have a look for yourself. After the customary meet-and-greet at the local filling station, our competitors pull onto the interstate (or whatever Read More

Street Racing Cowboy Style

April 27th, 2017

This well produced clip documents a night of competitive dig racing on the streets of Dallas/Fort Worth (Mexico, of course). It’s called Mini Cash Days and the buy-in is $100 per car with a 10-car field. It’s winner take all (actually 80-percent) and the action is single elimination with the losers in each round going back on the trailer. Lots of great looking street racers showed up for this night of street racing. It’s mostly Chevys and Fords but there is a particularly impressive LSX swapped Datsun 300Z and a couple of Cadillacs – you gotta see this one. When Read More

Classic Camaro Packs Giant TT Punch

April 25th, 2017

The only thing better than a great looking classic Chevrolet Camaro is a great looking classic Camaro that is capable of running some consistent low E.T.s in the 1/8-mile. This car fills that bill. Seriously, this car hooks up as proficiently and consistently as any car I have ever seen – straight out of the hole and right down the track like it’s on a rail. It is truly a credit to the tuner and the entire crew. The only complaints we heard were from little kids. It seems that every time the Camaro made a pass, all the air Read More

Speed Guide – Building a TT 2017 Mustang GT

April 21st, 2017

This clip does a great job of walking you through the making of a 675hp, twin turbocharged street beast. What makes it even better is that the car’s cute owner leads the way. Stephanie, who makes a wonderful tour guide, was not happy with her 400hp Mustang GT. Unlike most car owners, who just belly-ache and drive on, Steph decided to make some powerful changes. This video takes you through some of these changes – step-by-step. There is even a dyno comparison at the end. The 2017 Mustang GT was subjected to a set of airbags to achieve just the right Read More

Door-to-Door Roll Racing – Chevy vs. Ford

April 18th, 2017

In the classic battle to determine superiority between the bowtie or the blue oval, the action will occasionally spill over into the streets (of Mexico). As you can see, this video painstakingly (multiple GoPro angles, etc.) documents one such occasion. The Chevy part of this contest is the much lauded Corvette. Already one of the most feared street machines (in factory trim), the co-star of this clip has undergone severe modification. It is equipped with a 402 cubic-inch LS3 engine augmented with an ECS supercharger. The owner estimates horsepower in the 850 range. The Mustang GT is a force with Read More
