California Dreamin’ – Street Rolls

March 9th, 2018

It’s back to the left coast again for a healthy dose of beautiful sunshine, sea air, and sand in our flip flops – er, no – what we seek is open interstate, gasoline fumes, and hot floorboards. That’s exactly what we got from this outstanding group of street (roll) racers, south of the border. The action kicks off when the sun goes down with an all-wheel drive Honda CR-V that has been outfitted with a turbocharger. It has a 2.0-liter V-TEC engine and has undergone some basic weight reduction. There’s a twin turbo Dodge Viper running E85. A pair of Read More

Import vs. Domestic – Street Hits

March 2nd, 2018

Typical nightlife, somewhere south of the border. The backdrop: the deserted interstate of a big city. The players: Some of the most elite roll racing hooligans and renegades in North America. After the posturing and other pre race antics are completed, it’s time to get at the real stars of the show – the cars (and truck). First up is a 1,300hp Nissan GT-R. It has been treated to a Boost Logic 1300X Package and it moves like lightning strikes (hard and fast). In strict contrast, there’s a Firebird Formula with a built 6.0-liter V8, LS3 cylinder heads, and an Read More

Classic Mustang is Crazy Fast!

March 2nd, 2018

Grandpa’s first car was a ‘65 Ford Mustang. He got it when he was just sixteen. When it wasn’t fast enough anymore, he pulled out the small block and crammed in an all-aluminum 7.0-liter Dart Racing engine (10.5:1 compression ratio). Throw in a 250hp shot of nitrous and what he has is a 9-second show car that looks as good at the drive-in on Saturday night as it runs on the drag strip on Sunday afternoon. Seriously, this car is a real head turner. Every body panel is steel and it has been worked to perfection. The color choice is Read More

The King – 2000HP Fox Body Mustang

March 2nd, 2018

Calling himself the King of NO PREP Racing, this Fox Body Mustang posts consistent 8-second elapsed times in the 160 – 170 mph range. This is an all-steel bodied car (except for the hood which blew off during filming) with a massive 540 cubic-inch Chevrolet engine and a Precision 118-millimeter turbocharger (30 psi of boost). Competing in the Street Racer Class, the Wyoming Performance crew has the King churning at peak efficiency as it lines up for a first round matchup. In the right lane, we have a super clean, black,  turbo Fox Body. The black car gets the hole Read More

California Cash Days – LA Street Rolls

February 28th, 2018

This video takes the concept of Cash Days and applies it to a group of roll racers – then drops the whole thing into the crowded metropolis of Los Angeles. This is set to be single elimination, controlled roll racing. Eight cars are involved with a $200 buy-in; winner take all but when law enforcement appears on the scene it is turned into a total cluster freak. Check it out. First up is a Lamborghini Huracan with twin turbos rolling out against a Honda Civic with a giant (70-millimeter) turbocharger protruding through the hood and a massive intercooler busting through Read More

Wild Wild West – Arizona Cash Days

February 26th, 2018

This one has it all! Naturally aspirated, turbocharged, twin turbocharged, supercharged, and nitrous; there are imports and domestics. I have even heard rumors about a ‘76 Monza with a Pinto engine and a Procharger in the trunk (if you believe that, these guys have some oceanfront property to sell you – it’s very near the race site), This is Arizona Cash Days. It’s single elimination, ⅛-mile dig racing from the desert (of Mexico). The rules are simple: there’s a $150 buy in (16-cars) and the winner takes all the money. If you jump the light, cross the center stripe in Read More

7-Second TT Ford-F150 Makes 1900HP

February 26th, 2018

Greetings drag racing fans and welcome to the Haltech Import vs. Domestic World Cup Finals from Maryland. This is where some of the baddest street and strip machines come to lay it all on the line for cash, prizes, and bragging rights. The focus vehicle of this clip is a ground-pounding 2004 Ford F-150 Lightning Flareside pickup truck with a pair of Bullseye 88-millimeter turbochargers cramming air into a 400 cubic-inch Bennett Racing engine. It has a 10.5 racing chassis (from the firewall back) and runs consistent low 7-second elapsed times in the 190 mph range. The controller is a Read More

Lone Star Street Rolls

February 24th, 2018

It has been said that everything grows bigger in Texas. The group of cars featured in this clip guarantee that this slogan also applies to street racing, in the largest state of the union. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at a typical night of street (roll) racing down in Texas, Mexico. The first, in what will prove to be an illustrious list of killer street machines, is our camera car. It is a modified Cadillac CTS-V Sedan with a set of drag slicks on the rear. It has been upgraded (under the hood) with a set of Read More

Coyote Capri – Fox Body Heartbreaker

February 7th, 2018

After driving this super-clean Coyote swapped Mercury Capri over 100-miles to his “home track” this racer crushes the competition in the Stick Shift Class (eighth-mile) before loading up his gear for the ride back home. Now that’s what a true street race car is all about. Under the hood of this beauty is a beast (1,000whp) of a Coyote engine with a Vortech YSi (20 psi) supercharger. A Tremec T56 Magnum gearbox with a McLeod clutch transfers all those ponies to  a stock 8.8-inch rear differential. This Merc comes out of the hole like a bullet and glides through the Read More

200 MPH Terminator Mustang – 130 MPH Burnouts

February 1st, 2018

How do you know for sure that your car is making power aplenty? How about when you get to 130 mph and completely break traction and go into a fishtail. That’s as good of an indication as any. At the business end of this pony is a 2014 Shelby engine block with Darton sleeves. The cylinder heads have been upgraded with Ferrea valves and various high performance valve train components. A pair of Bullseye TCT 72-millimeter turbochargers cram serious air into the motor and a Holley Dominator EFI/Engine Management System see that the fuel gets to each cylinder at the Read More
