Cali Street Digs – Compton Clash

January 11th, 2017

Greetings street racing fans and welcome to one of the most historic street racing locations on the planet. The small community of Compton, (Mexico) is known worldwide for its unique cultural dynamic. It has for decades been the inspiration for motion pictures and music but there is one strip of blacktop that is easily recognizable to street racers. This video comes to us from this exact site. I especially enjoyed the way the video producer referred to the posturing and trash talking that takes place before a street race as “race negotiations.” In the hood or out – a $1,600 Read More

Roll and Dig Racing On the Missouri Streets

January 9th, 2017

They call Missouri (Mexico) the “Show Me State” and they are sure showing off some wild rides in this video. This clip features both dig and roll racing and showcases competitors from all the big three (Chevrolet, Chrysler, and Ford) domestic automakers. It all begins with dig racing and our videographer in the passenger seat of a souped-up ‘Vette. It has a 408-cubic inch, small block, LS engine with a Vortech YSi supercharger, an RPM transmission, and an RPM rear differential. This Chevy lines up against a Roush Mustang and what ensues is one of the closest dig contests that Read More

Street Beast Shootout – 1400WHP Viper vs 1100WHP 240SX

January 5th, 2017

Mention the words “Viper”, “GT-R”, and “street racing” to me and you will have my undivided attention. This video has all of those things and a whole lot more. Let’s get this (roll racing) party started with a contest between a 1,400whp Dodge Viper and an 8-second Nissan GT-R. The Gen V Viper and the Nisan GT-R are two of the baddest production vehicles to ever roll off an assembly line. Obviously the Viper in the video has undergone some extensive modifications; including a turbo setup. The Snake handles Godzilla easily and moves on to the next victim. You may Read More

Top 10 Street Sleepers of 2016

December 23rd, 2016

There is something particularly satisfying about building a car that can perform on the street without looking like it. This is called a “street sleeper” and it has been called a motorized version of the pool hustler. This video gives us a look at 10 of the baddest and most surprising street sleepers of 2016. Check out this turbocharged Honda Civic. With a built K20 and a massive turbocharger, this sub compact is knocking off Lamborghinis on the street. The turbo Silverado looks factory but don’t press your luck with this single cab pickup. With a big turbo and a Read More

2016 North Carolina Cash Days

December 21st, 2016

This video features at least two things that I hold near and dear: street racing and the beautiful state of North Carolina. The Tar Heel State has always held a special place in my heart, with its densely wooded mountains in the west and stunning beaches in the east, but experiencing the Tail of the Dragon (on my modified Harley Davidson Road King bagger) took it to a whole different level. Between that, some wonderful white whiskey (for medicinal purposes and in moderation), and some of the friendliest folks on earth, I can’t help but go back time and time Read More

First 2017 Ford GT Rolls off the Production Line

December 17th, 2016

The first production 2017 Ford GT rolled off the line today during a live FaceBook webcast from the factory in Canada.  The all new Ford GT was painted in black with orange stripes and had the optional carbon fiber wheels, glossy carbon fiber exterior trim along with the Launch Control interior. There will only be 1,000 3rd generation Ford GTs produced over the next 4 years and the order dates for the first 500 were sent out earlier this week.  We ended up with an order date of May 2017 which is just a few months away can’t wait to spec out, Read More

Parking Lot Drags – Small Tire

December 15th, 2016

Anyone who has ever raced in a parking can attest to the fact that it can be treacherous. This track, on this weekend, was possibly one of the most dangerous that I have ever seen. First of all, the track was an eighth-mile uphill – couldn’t find a flat place in Houston, Texas? Next, the drag strip dead-headed into a convention center. What’s up with that? Drag cars have enough problems stopping (hence the parachute) so why throw salt in the wound by restricting the landing strip to an area the width of a four-lane road? Finally, traction was nonexistent Read More

Street Roll – Turbo Mustang vs. ZR1 Corvette

December 14th, 2016

It has been said, where horsepower is concerned, there is no replacement for displacement. Certainly, I am all about the cubic inches, but recent developments in forced air induction have made racing a V6 or even a four-cylinder more feasible than ever. Of course, I always like to go with the strategy of building a monster V8 (with low compression specifically for power adders) injecting it with nitrous and then adding a supercharger or a couple of turbos – but that’s just one man’s path. There s something extremely rare in this video. It is so rare that it is Read More

Roll Racing – Mustang GT500 vs. LS Mazda RX7

December 12th, 2016

If you aren’t familiar with roll racing – just envision the racing version of a schoolyard game of pickup basketball – only much faster! Initially, a diverse contingent of heavily modified street cars converges on a gas station or convenience store (in Mexico) and there may be a little trash talk mixed with some tall tales about how much horsepower any given car may (or may not) be making. From there, there is typically some harmless wagering before the drivers and spotters jump in their cars and hit the highway. Tonight, there are numerous GoPro setups and multiple camera angles. Read More

You Jump – You Pay – Civic vs. Mustang

December 10th, 2016

This is about as raw as it gets! It’s street racing (of the dig variety) from down south of the border in Old Mexico and there is plenty of trash talking and other extracurricular activities to make for an interesting video. This is a three-fold grudge match between import and domestic, front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive, and nitrous and turbo and there is certainly no love lost between either of these three contingencies. The rules are simple; run what ya’ brung in head-up single race action with a human starter and a video spotter on each end. Cut the light Read More
