Nitrous vs. Turbo – Viper vs. Mustang

August 26th, 2016

This black beauty of a Fox Body Mustang is making 1,100whp with a 363 cubic-inch aluminum Dart Racing engine, high performance cylinder heads, and a massive 83-millimeter turbocharger. It’s putting those ponies to the ground with a built automatic racing transmission. After spending a day at the track, and posting an 8.64-second ET at 159.19 mph, the pony car takes to the streets looking for some action. If you are looking for action, chances are that you will find some. This time it comes in the form of a burnt orange Viper SRT. The Dodge Viper SRT is producing 972whp. Read More

Outlaw Armageddon – BOOST12 Mustang Dominates Small Tire Class

August 24th, 2016

The BOOST12 Cobra Mustang (prepared by Dean’s Perfromance) is arguably one of the baddest street cars on planet earth, with a big block Chevrolet engine and a pair of turbochargers. Nevertheless, it runs in the small tire class of No Prep Drag Racing. That can make it pretty challenging to even get down the track without an incident, much less win a fat wad of cash ($20K today) by making it through the finals. It’s Outlaw Armageddon and, after a successful night of testing, round one at Thunder Valley Raceway Park begins with the BOOSTED12 Mustang going against a capable Read More

Twin Turbo S10 Posts 8-Second Quarter-Mile

August 22nd, 2016

The thing that makes drag racing interesting is seeing a vehicle, like this 1987 Chevrolet S10 pickup that was never meant to go very fast, blast down the 1320 (feet) in less than 9-seconds at over 150 mph – time and time again! In my humble opinion, there are few things more satisfying than knowing that you have modified a vehicle so that it will do so much more than that for which it was designed. This compact pickup not only gets the job done on the track but it also proved that it can handle the rigors of Rocky Read More

Big Three Battle on the Street

August 18th, 2016

Here’s a battle between Chevrolet, Dodge, and Ford (respectfully in alphabetical order), that takes place on the streets of an abandoned Mexican town. All three cars have manual transmissions and all three are bone stock. The racing is of the roll variety and the GoPro equipment is plentiful. That makes for some great looks at these amazing cars. The bright yellow coupe is the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. This is the Chevy flagship and it comes with a 6.2-liter supercharged and direct fuel injected V8 engine (dry sump oiling system) mated to a 7-speed Active Rev Matching manual transmission. The Read More

Heirloom Nova Posts Consistent 8-Second Passes

August 17th, 2016

You have to love hand-me-downs like this pretty 1970 Chevrolet Nova. This work in progress has been owned by members of the same family for more than two decades. In that time, it has gone from being a weekend street warrior (with a bench seat and a column shifter) to the turbocharged work of art that you see in this video. When this racer’s brother owned the Nova, it ran in the 12s. After it underwent a serious upgrade to a big block engine, it dropped down into the 10s. That was followed up by a small block with nitrous. Read More

East Coast Street Racing – Twelve Cars Race for $1200

August 16th, 2016

That’s right baby! This is an East Coast (of Mexico – of course) style, single elimination tournament with twelve drivers contributing $100 each – and the final round winner is driving away with all the cash. While $1200 may not seem like a bunch of money to you; there are some people (myself included) that consider that a pretty good night’s fun (it ain’t work). One of the best things about having a cash-pool is that the competitors have to exit their vehicles and come together for a brief period. This usually results in a lot of trash talking and Read More

2000HP 1955 Chevy – Big Tire No Prep Racer

August 12th, 2016

This bad looking 1955 Chevrolet must truly strike fear into opposing cars because they just seem to lay down and die on the line. It is a pretty impressive looking hot rod but – darn it, guys – you gotta man up and give it all you got. Honestly, it don’t believe that it is fear. More than likely, it’s the stress and strain of sudden, maximum acceleration combined with the rigors of tremendous trap speeds followed by panic stops. This little red ’55 Chevrolet is packing a 2,000hp punch from a 632 cubic-inch big block and a 3-shot nitrous Read More

Giant Killer – 670HP Turbo K20 Honda Civic

August 4th, 2016

This little import doesn’t make a lot of noise but it does carry a big stick. Never mind that this Honda looks like it’s missing a few panels, it is wreaking havoc on the streets (of Mexico I’m certain), and taking no prisoners. Here is a dyno test and some street (roll) racing action that will have you wondering just how high this four-banger can rev. The tiny Civic first tangles with a Ferrari 458 and make him look foolish. Next, he jumps on a turbocharged S2000 and a modified GT-R and puts both their lights out, respectfully. Then he Read More

Canadian No Prep Mustang

August 3rd, 2016

This is how it’s done up North, eh? Johnny Quick says that this sweet red Mustang is running a 5.0-liter engine with lots of nitrous but I get the sneaking suspicion that it might be a little bigger than that. Holbrook Racing Engines is known for their work with Ford power-plants and their reputation speaks for itself. Despite the fact that JQ was more than a little apprehensive about giving us the 4-1-1 on his setup, he did indicate that he was hooking up with a four-link rear suspension. Well, attempting to hook up, that is. I don’t think that Read More
