1100HP TTLSX 350Z – Street Rolls

December 11th, 2017

Looking like something from a science fiction film, this Nissan 350Z dominates on the highways (of Mexico) in a fashion that is seldom captured on video. With its wide stance and beefy rubber, this Z-Car has power to burn. It is equipped with a twin turbocharged (pair of Precision 6266s) 5.3-liter LSX (Chevrolet V8 small block) engine. Boost is currently set at 30 psi and the car is running a stock GM manual transmission. Climb into the passenger seat and see what it is like to take make a few roll racing passes in this rocket. You won’t be disappointed. Read More

Twin Turbo HEMI 300 Street Hits

December 4th, 2017

Welcome aboard Mopar Airways Flight 160 (mph that is). Place your luggage in the overhead storage bins and buckle your safety belts. You are about to be treated to some low altitude passes in a Chrysler 300C luxury liner. The Texas (Mexico) streets are hot tonight and this Chrysler sedan is a big reason why. It is trolling for some roll racing action and finding it in droves. This Chrysler 300C has been treated to an engine upgrade. The new mill is a 404 cubic-inch stroker HEMI. It has a pair of bottom-mounted Precision 6766 turbochargers that are being water Read More

Spoolio – 8-Second TT Camaro

November 23rd, 2017

This video treats us to a long weekend of speed from Arizona. Get ready for some high flying (almost) dyno action, electrifying quarter-mile passes, and a ride along for some bone jarring half-mile hits. Our feature ride for this well produced flick is a Gen IV Chevrolet Camaro Z28. It has been upgraded with a built 376 cubic-inch LS3 engine block and a set of LSA cylinder heads. Engine performance is amplified with a Huron twin turbocharger kit. Power is dyno certified at 1,050hp (21 psi of boost) on this day and the twin turbo V8 sounds amazing. The action Read More

World’s Quickest Shelby GT500

November 15th, 2017

Welcome to Budds Creek, Maryland and the Maryland International Raceway. Allow me to introduce to you the Devil’s Reject Shelby GT500. It is capable of producing approximately 2,200hp. This video documents a 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 Mustang (highly modified) that has laid claim to the title of World’s Quickest (and Fastest) X275 modular engine Shelby GT500. During the 22nd Annual Haltech World Cup Finals, this pretty Cobra Mustang set in to laying down some consistent six and seven-second elapsed times (at around 200 mph) before dipping down into the sixes to stay. The most dramatic moment came when the Devil’s Read More

1300HP Aussie UTE Sleeper 

November 11th, 2017

This Aussie UTE (Australian for Sport Utility Vehicle) is perfect for building a sleeper. It is compact and lightweight and it even has a place to haul your cargo. In keeping with the sleeper scenario, this pair of fun-loving Australian race fans crammed a 400-cubic inch LS engine between the fender wells of this right-hand-drive UTE before shipping it over here to compete in Hot Rod Drag Week 2017. As if the motor swap wasn’t dramatic enough, there’s also a pair of 69-millimeter turbochargers in the bed. The vehicle is a 1997 Ford Falcon XH, which weighs in at about Read More

Vintage Vette Victimizes Competitors

November 8th, 2017

Rarely do I see a C1 Chevrolet Corvette at the drag strip. The folks who own these classic beauties most often reserve them for car shows and cruising. It is even less common to see a vintage ‘Vette dominating multiple classes (Small Tire and Big Tire) of an event like Street Car Takeover Tucson. Another characteristic that makes this open air Corvette special is the absolute simplicity of the powertrain. In a day of massive power-adders, chemical injections, and specialized racing fuels, this classic ride is propelled by a small block, Chevy LS (V8) engine with a 100hp shot of Read More

293 MPH Street Legal Ford GT

October 31st, 2017

While the standing mile pass that you will see on this video is not Guinness certified, it is no less impressive. This is the BADD GT. It is owned and prepared by Johnny Bohmer, of Performance Power Racing (South Florida) and it is the Guinness certified owner of the standing mile top-speed world record (283 mph) set in 2012. As you can see, Richard Rawlings (Gas Monkey Garage) is also a major sponsor of the BADD GT. This car is registered in the state of Florida and is driven on the street – daily. This is a great looking car Read More

Import vs. Domestic – Chevy, DSM, and Ford

October 28th, 2017

The battle between imported and domestic automobiles continues to rage on the streets of old Mexico. It all began about the time that the first imported automobiles began disembarking in the ports of the U.S. and Canada and it is alive and well in 2017. Our first entrant is racing a Chevrolet 1500 Sportside pickup. It is well equipped with a 6.0-liter LS engine that has been outfitted with a supercharger and a kit of nitrous. Entrant number two is piloting a Ford Mustang Cobra Terminator Edition with a 3.4-liter Whipple supercharger, full bolt-ons, and a performance tuner. Power output Read More

2000HP Mustang Drop-Top

October 27th, 2017

In a sea of hopped-up, high-performance street cars, we spotted this Mustang convertible. You just don’t see that many fast drop-tops so, we decided to take a closer look. The venue is Street Car Takeover St. Louis and the Class is Small Tire. This little red Mustang is powered by a 400 cubic-inch small block with an 85-millimeter turbocharger. Power output is estimated at 2,000hp. Round One brings about a touch of Mustang on Mustang fun. Our feature car cuts the light on the competition and gaps him easily. Round Two winds up being the semi-final round and a solo Read More

Tesla Invests in Muscle Cars

October 19th, 2017

In a recent interview (parody) with Elon Musk of Tesla, a reporter asked if the automaker was indeed buying up muscle cars and hot rods around the suburban Atlanta (Georgia) area. Musk smiled wryly and explained to the journalist that he was mistaken. While it has been widely reported that Tesla has come to own many muscle cars in and around the 303; these reports are largely limited to a single P100D and an event called Street Car Takeover Atlanta. It would seem that an all-electric and gutted (it still weighs in at nearly two-and-a-half tons) Tesla P100D had thoroughly Read More
