Nation’s Fastest CTS-V vs. Hellcat Pair

January 31st, 2018

Greetings racing fans and street racing aficionados. It’s time to climb into the passenger seat of what is being billed as the fastest V3 Cadillac CTS-V in this great nation. This is a bonafide 800whp, 9-second quarter-mile car that has retained all the luxurious trappings of a Cadillac. Now, we can ride along for a night of roll racing on the interstates of Mexico. The recipe of this high-powered Caddy is a simple one. Just add a 150hp kit of nitrous to the already potent CTS-V powertrain. It rolls off the assembly line with a 640hp supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine. Read More

Taking it to the Street – Mustang Street Rolls

January 30th, 2018

This video is taking it to the streets (of Mexico) amidst a whole herd of wild Mustangs. Our camera car for the first part of this clip is Lemons GT. It’s a 5.0-liter with a Paxton 2200 supercharger and a complete high performance exhaust system. It’s burning E85 fuel. In a classic battle between supercharged and turbocharged, the camera car rolls up beside a twin turbo 5.0 Mustang in Grabber Blue. The former has been upgraded with a pair of ON3 60-millimeter turbochargers and Injector Dynamics ID1000cc fuel injectors. It is also running on E85 fuel. After multiple hits, the Read More

Daily Driver Street Digs for Dollars

January 28th, 2018

Let’s roll out with the Daily Driver Street Racing Club for some double-elimination action on the rural routes of Mexico. These guys (and girls) are primed and ready to break off an eighth-mile piece of black top in route to claiming the cash prize and bragging rights as the quickest daily driver around. The first thing that I notice are some top tier daily driver/street racing machines. There is a Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 with its 505hp supercharged V8 and several Corvette entries. There’s  an SRT Dodge Challenger with a big old 6.4-liter HEMI engine making 485hp from the factory. There Read More

Vega Wagon – Big Block on Nitrous

January 25th, 2018

I love me some Chevy Vegas. I can remember when these beauties were everywhere – they were a dime-a-dozen. Now, you can’t find one anywhere and when one shows up at the track everyone acts like it’s something new. Personally, I prefer the Vega coupe but this guy has put together quite a package with this station wagon. At the heart of this creation is an MDR built big block Chevrolet engine. Although aged, it is holding together adequately. What makes the longevity (more than two-decades) of this massive V8 extraordinary is that there is a kit of nitrous spraying Read More

1300HP Fox Body Mustang – Street Hits

January 22nd, 2018

This 8-second (@ 162 mph), 1988 Saleen Mustang is one of the cleanest street/drag cars that I have ever seen. Despite the fact that it has been passed around among friends and owned by the same guy for more than two decades, this Fox Body is as clean as a pin. You will no longer find the four-cylinder Saleen setup under the hood of this pony car. Instead, there is an NPR built Dart Racing (V8) engine with a custom-built (Power by the Hour – PBH) Bullseye 83-millimeter turbocharger kit. The tranny is a PBH built Ford 4R70W (automatic) with Read More

Mustang Madness – Turbo GT500

January 16th, 2018

If you want to win a ton of races (street or strip), a good place to start is with a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. With its powerful, supercharged V8 (5.8-liter) engine, the Shelby GT500 is capable of producing 662hp and 631 lb.-ft. of torque from the factory. Add a turbocharger (or two) and you have an absolute beast of a race car that posts consistent 6-second quarter-mile times at more than 200 mph. The Haltech World Cup Finals Import vs. Domestic brings out some of the best drag racers in the country to compete for cash and bragging rights. Our Read More

8-Second TT Classic Camaro

January 12th, 2018

Greetings drag racing fans and aficionados. Welcome to Street Car Takeover Tucson. The object of our focus and affection today is a menacing 1968 Chevrolet Camaro. It possesses that perfect combination of a vintage appearance with a very modern level of performance. It simply has everything it takes to make it look like a muscle car but run like a rocket ship. The body is all steel and it is pristine (except for a ton of rubber sprayed on the rear quarters). The stance is unique in this day of cars with a low center of gravity. It almost has Read More

3-Wide Street  Rolls – GT-R vs. Mustang vs. Corvette

January 12th, 2018

Nothing says “loving” like some 3-wide street racing on the interstates of Old Mexico. That is especially true when you have a slew of radically modified imports and domestics ready to roll up on one another and get jiggy with it. Check it out! First of all; our camera car is a Procharged Corvette C7 with exhaust headers. It is running 93 octane premium fuel and taking on a Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck (in the initial contest) with a stock 6.0-liter engine and a Borg Warner S480 turbocharger (10 psi of boost). He is burning E85 fuel. The pickup jumps Read More

Fox Body Grudge Race – Beater Bomb vs. Torch 2.0

January 11th, 2018

This video treats us to a look at a bad little Fox Body Mustang that is known as the Torch 2.o. Although exact equipment specifications are kept close to the vest, it has been determined that the nitrous burning engine in this Mustang is a small block LS (Chevy) based V8. How about them apples? Footage from several dragstrips and multiple events (Small Tire Class) portrays the Torch 2.0 reeking havoc on the competition. The first stop is at the Ice Cream Cruise and the first victim is a classic Ford Falcon. After a small catfish out of the hole, Read More

Toyota Supra vs, Ferrari 599 – Street Rolls

January 9th, 2018

Let’s join “Wild Willie The Toothless Tiger” on a rare chilly night in the Sunshine State (of Mexico).  On the agenda for the evening is a bit of roll racing on the interstate but first a tour of Induction Performance for a look at some of the baddest street cars on the planet. While Induction Performance specializes in Toyota (Supra), Lexus (Toyota), and Nissan (GT-R, 370ZX) modification, there are a wide variety of cars in house for repairs/maintenance. There are some Mustang GT500 and Viper owners who trust this shop to deliver dependable performance. They are not disappointed. Our feature Read More
