Outlaw Armageddon – BOOST12 Mustang Dominates Small Tire Class

August 24th, 2016

The BOOST12 Cobra Mustang (prepared by Dean’s Perfromance) is arguably one of the baddest street cars on planet earth, with a big block Chevrolet engine and a pair of turbochargers. Nevertheless, it runs in the small tire class of No Prep Drag Racing. That can make it pretty challenging to even get down the track without an incident, much less win a fat wad of cash ($20K today) by making it through the finals. It’s Outlaw Armageddon and, after a successful night of testing, round one at Thunder Valley Raceway Park begins with the BOOSTED12 Mustang going against a capable Read More

Twin Turbo S10 Posts 8-Second Quarter-Mile

August 22nd, 2016

The thing that makes drag racing interesting is seeing a vehicle, like this 1987 Chevrolet S10 pickup that was never meant to go very fast, blast down the 1320 (feet) in less than 9-seconds at over 150 mph – time and time again! In my humble opinion, there are few things more satisfying than knowing that you have modified a vehicle so that it will do so much more than that for which it was designed. This compact pickup not only gets the job done on the track but it also proved that it can handle the rigors of Rocky Read More

Big Three Battle on the Street

August 18th, 2016

Here’s a battle between Chevrolet, Dodge, and Ford (respectfully in alphabetical order), that takes place on the streets of an abandoned Mexican town. All three cars have manual transmissions and all three are bone stock. The racing is of the roll variety and the GoPro equipment is plentiful. That makes for some great looks at these amazing cars. The bright yellow coupe is the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. This is the Chevy flagship and it comes with a 6.2-liter supercharged and direct fuel injected V8 engine (dry sump oiling system) mated to a 7-speed Active Rev Matching manual transmission. The Read More

Heirloom Nova Posts Consistent 8-Second Passes

August 17th, 2016

You have to love hand-me-downs like this pretty 1970 Chevrolet Nova. This work in progress has been owned by members of the same family for more than two decades. In that time, it has gone from being a weekend street warrior (with a bench seat and a column shifter) to the turbocharged work of art that you see in this video. When this racer’s brother owned the Nova, it ran in the 12s. After it underwent a serious upgrade to a big block engine, it dropped down into the 10s. That was followed up by a small block with nitrous. Read More

East Coast Street Racing – Twelve Cars Race for $1200

August 16th, 2016

That’s right baby! This is an East Coast (of Mexico – of course) style, single elimination tournament with twelve drivers contributing $100 each – and the final round winner is driving away with all the cash. While $1200 may not seem like a bunch of money to you; there are some people (myself included) that consider that a pretty good night’s fun (it ain’t work). One of the best things about having a cash-pool is that the competitors have to exit their vehicles and come together for a brief period. This usually results in a lot of trash talking and Read More

1000HP Hellcat Tears Up the Streets

August 16th, 2016

This Dodge Charger Hellcat is currently on a bit of a high horse – High Horse Performance, that is. The team at HHP helped this driver squeeze 1,000hp (950whp) from his 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI by adding a Diablosport tuner, a 2.85 crank pulley, a Green serpentine belt, a cat delete package, a set of Nitto NT 555R drag radials, and a nitrous kit. In factory trim the Hellcat Charger is touted as the baddest production sedan ever made. The 6.2-liter HEMI V8 makes 707hp and 650 lb-ft. of torque. Tonight, he is out trolling the streets for some action and he Read More

Underground Lamborghini Street Clash

August 8th, 2016

Now this is my idea of a perfect Sunday drive (until the end). The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and I’m behind the wheel of a beautiful, skillfully modified, elite level street racer. To make this relaxing ride even more enjoyable, two like-minded individuals roll up in their tricked out supercars. Since we’re already in Mexico (where street racing is perfectly legal), my acquaintances and I decide to “blow the soot” out of our machines and engage in a little friendly competition – you bet there’s gonna to be a race! Roll racing is the order of the day and Read More

Full Electric Dragster Posts 7.24-Second Quarter-Mile

August 5th, 2016

If you think that is a world record for electric vehicles in the 1/4-mile – you are right! Who said that electric vehicles were slow, anyway? The Lonestar EV Racing Team towed the line at the Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown, Texas and quietly (get it – it makes very little sound) posted the best 1/4-mile ET ever for an electric vehicle. As if that isn’t enough, Lonestar also put up the highest trap speed ever (186 mph). This unit resembles a top fuel dragster and is powered by four electric motors that make 8,000 amps combined. It can go Read More

Giant Killer – 670HP Turbo K20 Honda Civic

August 4th, 2016

This little import doesn’t make a lot of noise but it does carry a big stick. Never mind that this Honda looks like it’s missing a few panels, it is wreaking havoc on the streets (of Mexico I’m certain), and taking no prisoners. Here is a dyno test and some street (roll) racing action that will have you wondering just how high this four-banger can rev. The tiny Civic first tangles with a Ferrari 458 and make him look foolish. Next, he jumps on a turbocharged S2000 and a modified GT-R and puts both their lights out, respectfully. Then he Read More

1400HP Rusty Camaro Takes Roll Racing Top Speed

August 2nd, 2016

They say that it ain’t how you look but what you have under the hood. Never have those words held more truth than with Eric Yost’s ‘rusted out’ classic Camaro. This thing certainly has that ‘distressed’ look that decorators find so appealing these days. Eric not only rolls out in the Outlaw class but also dips his toe in the roll racing event; posting a top speed for the event (174.89 mph) . The old Camaro is running a professionally built 352 cubic-inch engine being force fed air by a 91-millimeter turbocharger. When all the chickens are in the hen Read More
