Thin Mint – 6-Second Mustang

October 11th, 2017

This brilliantly hued Mustang is much more than just a pretty face. It manages to post consistent 6-second elapsed times and win races in the process. To answer the obvious question: The paint job is a mixture of a seventies Ford Mustang Mach 1 color and (of all things) an Aston Martin shade. I’m not sure whether I like it or not but it is certainly unique. I definitely like what has been done under the hood. The best thing that can happen to a small coupe is a huge engine. The Thin Mint has a 5.4-liter modular unit from Read More

NA Viper Incinerates the Interstate

October 9th, 2017

Who says you have to have a power adder to win on the street? Everybody has got them these days. Turbochargers, superchargers, and nitrous – some racers even stack them just for good measure. I love them (and run them myself) but are they a must have? What happens when a good old boy decides to go with a whole mountain of naturally aspirated (NA) cubic inches in a high performance street beast? In this case, they call it SneakySnake. It’s an unassuming Dodge Viper (as unassuming as a Viper can be) and it is out to prove a point Read More

Mustang GT500 vs Turbo Corvette – Street Rolls

October 5th, 2017

Your chariot awaits. Climb on board and buckle up for some crazy street racing action. The camera car is a Shelby GT500 Mustang that has been outfitted with a Kenne Bell 3.6-liter supercharger. It’s running E85 fuel. You’ve heard of kicking butt and taking names? (if not, just ask your grandpa). Well this Ford is definitely taking pictures but is it kicking butt? Let’s find out. The first contest is between the camera car and a Corvette Z06 with a camshaft upgrade and the full line of bolt-on accoutrement. It looks like the ‘Vette got gapped. Next, we have some Read More

840HP Charger Hellcat – Street Rolls

October 1st, 2017

When the camera car is a 1,300hp Nissan GT-R, it is a good indication that the video contains some elite level street (roll) racing action. That was certainly the case during this night of street racing down in Houston (Mexico). There is a whole bevy of amazing street cars in this clip. After a short show-and-tell session, the competitors take to the highway where the action gets started. A 1,200whp Pontiac Trans Am Formula (6.0-liter engine, LS3 cylinder heads, and an 88-millimeter turbocharger) gets spanked by the camera car (1,300hp Boost Logic GT-R). Both these cars chew up blacktop like Read More

Turbo Chevy Pickups Take to the Streets

September 29th, 2017

Just in case you were wondering what good ol’ boys do on Saturday night… How about bolting a big old turbocharger to your ruggedly dependable Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and taking to the highway (after a brief meet and greet at the Auto Zone in Mexico) for some roll racing? These guys are serious competitors and they ain’t backing down from nobody. The first Chevy (we’ll call it Gray), rolls out against a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 with a full accoutrement of aftermarket bolt-ons and a camshaft upgrade. We are talking about the top-tier Corvette. It seems like the ZR1 has the Read More

Real Street Rolls in the 405

September 26th, 2017

Anyone who has turned a television on in the last three-years knows about the street racing scene in Oklahoma City. We also know that television programming is not always what it seems. So, where can you check out some real street racing from OKC? Right here! This is real street (roll) racing from the streets of Oklahoma (Mexico). Nothing is staged here; you will experience all the sights and sounds associated with a night of street racing on the highway. If you want a diverse group of street racers, look no further. You’ve got everything here from a rotary powered Read More

Red Demon DSM – No Prep Banger

September 26th, 2017

Allow me to begin by saying that if you can make it to the final round of any drag racing event with a four-cylinder powered vehicle, kudos to you! On the other hand – this is certainly not your average four-cylinder. This is a Boostin Performance built 2.0-liter (4G63) with aluminum connecting rods. It is being choked by an 86-millimeter Precision turbocharger and a methanol injection system. The car is making an incredible 85-pounds of boost and is capable of producing 1,500hp (from a four-cylinder!). The event is Chitown King of the Streets and the Red Demon DSM is competing Read More

LS – Street – Fest 2017

September 26th, 2017

Annually, the Holley LS Fest East brings out some of the baddest LS powered (and LS spoiler) street machines on the East Coast. They spend the daylight hours at the track; generally behaving cordially and showing some degree of distinguished restraint. So, how do you suppose these rambunctious hooligans (myself included) entertain themselves when the lights go down and the gates are locked at the drag strip? They hit the streets (of Mexico – of course) for some high-spirited roll racing action. Peel your eyeballs and have a look for yourself. The general rule of the day is 60 mph Read More

6-Second GTO Chills Ice Cream Cruise

September 23rd, 2017

With the recent advancements in power-adder technology, it is rarer than hen’s teeth to see a competitive naturally aspirated (N/A) car at the drag strip. It is even more uncommon to see one with a steel body that can run consistent (low) 6-second quarter-mile elapsed times and dominate the class. This fourth-generation GTO is currently powered by a massive 7.4-liter LSx engine that produces approximately 760hp. A Powerglide transmission helps to send those ponies to a narrowed Ford 9-inch rear differential. All the way down the line, this Goat is built on an old school model with the latest components Read More

Hot Rod Drag Week – Final Day

September 20th, 2017

It’s all over too quickly – for fans and spectators, that is. Hot Rod Drag Week 2017 is coming to a close and the weary competitors are eager to get to the final track (Cordova International Raceway) after their 1,000 excursion. Traditionally, the final day of Drag Week means that racers and crews can put more power to the pavement (not that they haven’t already been pushing the envelope). All week long they have been trying to save their machines because they must be driven between each venue. The final day yields a little less worry because broken cars can Read More
