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

3-Wide Street Dig and Roll from Mexico

April 12th, 2017

This is how they do it south of the border – down (Nuevo) Mexico way. One could call this clip “Street Racing at its Best”. There are cars from all over the globe; Acura, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Dodge, Diamond Star Motors (DSM), Ford, Honda (rear-engine, 500hp?!), Nissan, and Subaru are all well represented here. Rolls The evening begins with a pair of supercharged C6 ‘Vettes locking horns in roll racing action. This turns out to be one of the closest races of the night. Next up, you have a couple of roll passes that feature a herd of the baddest Ford 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

3000HP Muscle Car Barn Find

April 7th, 2017

So, anyone who has seen the movie “Gone in Sixty-Seconds” with Nick Cage knows about Eleanor. She was a mystical 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Fastback. Every time Cage got an opportunity to get behind the wheel of Eleanor, bad things happened for him but it always led to some action-packed cinema. Well, I don’t think that Eleanor had anything on this beast that the owner affectionately calls “Helleanor”. Helleanor is an all steel chassis; rolling out with a 402-cubic inch small block that is force fed by a pair of Precision 8685 turbochargers. She is capable of producing 3,000hp Read More

Twin Turbo Corvette – 212 MPH in Eighth-Mile

April 4th, 2017

How about some good old drag racing action, on radial tires, and an 1/8-mile drag strip? That’s three of the things this video yields. You also get the see Mark Woodruff, in his awesome looking twin turbocharged Corvette, break the radial tire 1/8-mile top speed world record – not once but twice. Lights Out 8 brings you Radial vs. The World with some of the biggest and baddest names in radial tire drag racing. NovaJoe was on hand in his wild looking GTO; as was Stevie “FAST” Jackson, Barry Mitchell, and Keith Haynes. Mark and the crew laid down great Read More

Twin Turbo Ford GT Crushes World Record

March 28th, 2017

Look out Bugatti; there’s a new top speed world record holder in the mile and it blasts off behind a familiar blue oval. No, it’s not a strictly stock production car but the level of speed displayed by this Ford GT during the Texas Mile event has many speed enthusiasts wondering what this car is capable of when given a more spacious course. The 2005 Ford GT, prepared by M2K Motorsports, lined up unceremoniously and ran a 293.6 mph pass from a standing start and it did it in just one-mile. This is good enough to annihilate the standing one-mile Read More

Phoenix Streets – 18 Car Bracket

March 13th, 2017

Hello drag racing fans and aficionados! Welcome to the streets of Phoenix (Mexico) where an evening of street racing can be cold, wet, and dusty all at the same time. This may be the most diverse band of street racers ever gathered on a chilly stretch of desert highway. There are domestics and imports, muscle cars and late models, coupes and pickups, naturally aspirated cars, nitrous injected cars, turbo cars, and supercharged cars – there’s something in this video for everyone. They have come together in a contest of speed and guts to see who can claim the $3,000 grand Read More

Blown Mafia

February 8th, 2017

It seems that everywhere I go, racers are partial to one of the big three power-adders. Some like turbochargers, others love superchargers, and some are loyal to nitrous injection systems. That got me to thinking: why can’t a guy have a combination of two or even all three? It seems that I am not the only sicko following this train of thought. Bradley Gray, owner of Blown Mafia, is in the habit of stacking power-adders and covering them in chrome. All these vehicles run and drive but (the bad news is that) Bradley is not into racing them. He likes Read More
