8-Second Mustang ZR1 LS Swap

June 11th, 2019

Is it a waste of a good Corvette engine? Is it a Gen IV Mustang gone rogue? The answer depends on which manufacturer camp you represent. Chevy purists hate it for the former and Ford loyalists despise it as the latter. Now, don’t get it twisted – when I cut myself, tiny little bowties ooze out – but I see this build from a practical standpoint, and it looks pretty sweet. This “power couple” had the Mustang sitting around when a customer totaled their supercharged Corvette ZR1 with an LS9 mill between the fenders. Out came the blue oval cluster Read More

McLaren 570S Street Hits – ZR1, Mustang, Hellcat

June 5th, 2019

Summer’s here and the time is right for racing in the streets (of Mexico). You don’t see many McLarens on the street racing (roll or dig) scene in my neck of the woods. Nevertheless, this cat is out there trolling the highways for potential victims. Problem is, that this British bombshell might just let his alligator persona overload his jaybird capabilities. This murderer’s row of homegrown hooligans is no joke. We have an LSx powered Corvette with an F1X ProCharger claiming 850hp. There are a pair of ‘Vette entries of the ZR1 variety. Both have cylinder head and camshaft upgrades. Read More

Undercover Sedan or 10-Second Sleeper?

May 29th, 2019

Hello, drag racing fans and welcome to Holley LS Fest West from the Jewel of the Desert, Las Vegas, Nevada. This video gives us a glimpse into the Street King Class and a 1981 Mercury Zephyr that looks like a grandma may have driven it to church last Sunday. What’s that you ask? A Ford product at the LS Fest West? Haven’t you heard? All the best blue oval racers are going over to the LS platform. Heck, more than half the Mustangs on the track are running Chevy running gear these days. Anyway – this sleeper is equipped with Read More

Cincy Street Nights – Twin Turbo V8 S10

May 23rd, 2019

This is the all-American story of two brothers and their souped-up Chevy S10 pickup truck. Like most Friday nights, these two guys are at Edgewater Sports Park in Cleves, Ohio for Cincy Street Nights. It’s really great to see a community that makes an investment in its young people by providing them an alternative to getting in trouble on the streets. It’s the first weekend of racing for these ambitious young men and they have acquired a brand-new set of Mickey Thompson slicks for their No-Prep drag truck. Now, it’s off to the local auto repair shop (Lucore Automotive) for Read More

Tesla P100D vs. Dodge Challenger Hellcat – Street Car Takeover

May 20th, 2019

Hello racing fans and welcome back to Thunder Valley at Bristol Dragway in beautiful Bristol, Tennessee. Our focal car today is a familiar one to most YouTubers. It is a Tesla P100D that has been whipping muscle cars all over the country. With all-electric power, this thing blasts out of the hole like a rocket and posts very consistent elapsed times. This makes the Tesla ideal for Index Racing. Unlike conventional drag racing, in which a competitor gets down the track as quickly as possible, Index Racing is the practice of selecting a time just slower than your fastest ever Read More

May 15th, 2019

Greetings racing fans and welcome to Street Car Takeover, coming to you from Bristol Dragway in Bristol, TN. Featured in the Small Tire Street Racer Class is this pristine ’67 Ford Fairlane with a modular engine and a pair of power adders. At 3,800-pounds, the car is a complete street beast – make no mistake about that. It is rocking a late model Coyote engine with some billet valve covers that make heads turn. There are also a pair of turbochargers churning away under the hood. The tidy combination is good for getting this sexy hunk of American muscle down Read More

Street Racing Cali-Style – Roll and Dig

May 13th, 2019

Let’s head to Northern California (Mexico) – where the beaches are warm and the nights are cool – for some street racing action. On hand for two sessions of racing are all types of power-adders, numerous makes, and multiple setups. There are supercharged, turbocharged, naturally aspirated, and nitrous enhanced vehicles from the U.S. and abroad. Here we go! The morning session is focused solely on dig racing. The first contest is between a C6 Corvette (408 cubic-inch motor, ProCharger, nitrous – 930hp) and a naturally aspirated Chevy Camaro Z28. Both cars cut the light precisely and the Camaro totes the Read More

CTS-V vs. Mustang and Corvette – Street Hits

May 4th, 2019

As the summer evenings grow warmer and the risk of precipitation is reduced, the sounds of high-performance, interstate devouring, roll race cars can be heard. The late evening and early morning hours, when traffic is virtually non-existent, are prime-time for rolling these purpose-built machines onto the highway (of Mexico) for competition. Many heavily modified roll racers have showed up for this evening of fun. There is a Corvette C7 with a camshaft upgrade, a V-7 YSI Supercharger by Vortech, and a methanol injection. A 1,000hp Nissan GT-R and another (980hp) ‘Vette with an LSx engine and a YSI blower. This Read More

Scott Chevy II – More Blower than Engine

April 30th, 2019

Running in the True Street Class, the Carl Scott Honey Badger Chevy II is equipped with a 632-cube Troy Scott Racing engine. The “small shaft” motor was initially installed in a sand crawler but made too much torque. Sounds like the perfect fit for a No-Prep monster! The true eye-catcher is a blower that has more cubic inches poking out of the hood than most cars have under the hood. The Honey Badger features a Whipple 8.3-liter supercharger bolted to the massive engine. After a successful Round 1, the Honey Badger galded a snout-bearing in the Whipple. In this environment, Read More
