Street Racing Cowboy Style

April 27th, 2017

This well produced clip documents a night of competitive dig racing on the streets of Dallas/Fort Worth (Mexico, of course). It’s called Mini Cash Days and the buy-in is $100 per car with a 10-car field. It’s winner take all (actually 80-percent) and the action is single elimination with the losers in each round going back on the trailer. Lots of great looking street racers showed up for this night of street racing. It’s mostly Chevys and Fords but there is a particularly impressive LSX swapped Datsun 300Z and a couple of Cadillacs – you gotta see this one. When Read More

April 27th, 2017

Climb on board the Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) Nissan GT-R and let Lucas English (of English Racing) take you step-by-step through a 1/4-mile pass. This POV tutorial begins before the burnout box and continues through deploying the parachute. Lucas opens up his tool box of speed and makes you privy to all his tuning tricks. He shows you what happens as he and the English Racing team try to best Giidi as the quickest GT-R on the planet. This is no exhibition race, drag racing fans, it’s for all the marbles and this video puts you in the passenger seat Read More

Classic Camaro Packs Giant TT Punch

April 25th, 2017

The only thing better than a great looking classic Chevrolet Camaro is a great looking classic Camaro that is capable of running some consistent low E.T.s in the 1/8-mile. This car fills that bill. Seriously, this car hooks up as proficiently and consistently as any car I have ever seen – straight out of the hole and right down the track like it’s on a rail. It is truly a credit to the tuner and the entire crew. The only complaints we heard were from little kids. It seems that every time the Camaro made a pass, all the air Read More

Evo X World Record Quarter-Mile

April 22nd, 2017

Hello drag racing fans and speed aficionados of every variety. Join me in congratulating Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) and English Racing as they (once again) shatter the world record 1/4-mile with a pass of 8.48-seconds @ 164.1 mph. The crew had the little sedan running in the 8.5-second range the entire event (TX2K17) and finally hit the right spot for a blow out pass in the latter stages. It seemed like Lucas English was pulling his hair out at the laptop trying to find the perfect tune. Lucas is no stranger to world records and he came through in the clutch. Read More

Speed Guide – Building a TT 2017 Mustang GT

April 21st, 2017

This clip does a great job of walking you through the making of a 675hp, twin turbocharged street beast. What makes it even better is that the car’s cute owner leads the way. Stephanie, who makes a wonderful tour guide, was not happy with her 400hp Mustang GT. Unlike most car owners, who just belly-ache and drive on, Steph decided to make some powerful changes. This video takes you through some of these changes – step-by-step. There is even a dyno comparison at the end. The 2017 Mustang GT was subjected to a set of airbags to achieve just the right Read More

Road Rage – Underground Lambo vs. Hayabusa

April 18th, 2017

Wow! These street bikes move like something from another galaxy! The question is: Are they faster than a highly modified Underground Racing (UR) Lamborghini? Let’s take a look. Even in stock form, a Lamborghini Superleggera is the delight of many car enthusiasts. The mere mention of Underground Racing compounds that delight a million times. The twin turbo kit from UR uses a pair of 67-milimeter Precision turbochargers and a MoTeC controller to increase horsepower from the 600hp range to 1,500hp (1,300whp). These UR Lamborghinis are super fast and in constant contention for all kinds of top speed world records but Read More

Roll Racing on the Street – McLaren vs. Ferrari

April 15th, 2017

If high profile street racing is what you seek – this is it! How much better could it get than a McLaren 570S and a Ferrari 488GTB, engaged in a contest of speed and acceleration on the street? One thing is for certain; if you spot these two fine examples of automotive engineering on your local interstate, it will be a memorable trip. The McLaren 570S is marketed as an entry level supercar. It is less intense and expensive than other McLaren models. The monocoque, mid-engine coupe is equipped with a 3.8-liter V8 engine capable of producing 562hp and 443 Read More

Stock Engine Viper World Record Half-Mile

April 14th, 2017

Those speed demons at Calvo Motorsports have done it again! These guys continue to push the limitations of top speed as they pertain to factory stock engines. If you are going to build a legacy of speed with stock hardware, what better place to start than the premier (arguably) high-performance coupe produced in the U.S. The Viper comes off the assembly line with a massive 8.0-liter V10 engine that is capable of producing more than 600hp. I am not absolutely sure about the rules for this particular class but I did hear the owner/driver talking about bolt-ons and a turbocharger. Read More

3-Wide Street Dig and Roll from Mexico

April 12th, 2017

This is how they do it south of the border – down (Nuevo) Mexico way. One could call this clip “Street Racing at its Best”. There are cars from all over the globe; Acura, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Dodge, Diamond Star Motors (DSM), Ford, Honda (rear-engine, 500hp?!), Nissan, and Subaru are all well represented here. Rolls The evening begins with a pair of supercharged C6 ‘Vettes locking horns in roll racing action. This turns out to be one of the closest races of the night. Next up, you have a couple of roll passes that feature a herd of the baddest Ford Read More

2JZ Powered S10 Pickup Runs Sixes

April 10th, 2017

At Lights Out 8, down in South Georgia, there was certainly no shortage of S10 pickups . S10 pickup carcasses are everywhere, so it’s relatively easy to pick up a pickup and throw in an LS small block or even a big block and put down a pretty decent pass on the street or strip. Well, the owner of the truck featured in this video chose a slightly different path. Maybe there were no LS engines available in his neck of the woods, perhaps he is a V8-hater, or peradventure that he was going for a lightweight theme – I Read More
