Easy Like Sunday Morning – The Kid Hits the Streets

December 1st, 2020

While most street racing videos are produced under cover of darkness, this short clip captures events as they unfold on a bright and sunny Sunday morning somewhere in midwestern Mexico. Dozens of top tier competitors are on hand – including a group of high-powered S10 entries – to compete for cash and bragging rights. Of note are the family racing team from the Street Racing Channel (SRC). Today, the SRC crew is campaigning the twin turbocharged Chevy S10 pickup piloted by The Kid. We join the action as the competitors gather in an abandoned industrial park. A purple S10 takes Read More

2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 vs. 2014 Dodge Viper TA – 60 to 160 MPH Street Pulls

November 28th, 2020

It’s time to hit the streets (of Mexico) again for some high-caliber roll racing action. Featured in this video is a 2014 Dodge SRT Viper TA taking on all comers on the interstate. The backdrop is a slightly overcast sunny afternoon on a (nearly) deserted stretch of highway south of the border. Hold on to your hat ‘cause this is about to get crazy! The 2014 Viper TA (Track Attack) is an out-and-out track car designed for the pure driving enthusiast. Under the hood is a naturally aspirated (all-aluminum) 8.4-liter V10 engine capable of producing 640hp and 600 lb.-ft. of Read More

Hellcat Killer – 707HP Toyota MR2

November 26th, 2020

What’s better than an everyday driver that makes over 700whp? I’ll tell you what – a cheap, lightweight two-seater that makes over 700hp to the rear wheels. Let’s take a closer look at this 1992 Toyota MR2, and lay down some street pulls just for kicks and giggles. Under the bonnet of this mid-engine, rear-wheel drive monster is a built (by ATS Racing of Denton, Texas) 2.0-liter 3S-GTE Toyota motor. The driver calls it a 5S-GTE, but I believe he is incorrect. It is likely a Gen V version of the motor. Anyway, ATS outfitted this beauty with a massive Read More

Mustang vs. Mustang – Nitrous Fox Body vs. Twin Turbo Coyote Street Digs

November 25th, 2020

Never mind that we have Ford Mustangs from different generations going head-up on the street (of Mexico) for bragging rights and $1,300 cash – this is a battle between the “old school” nitrous crowd and the nuevo turbo bunch. All we need is a supercharged car and we’d have a drag racing trifecta. These power-adder battles get gritty. Nitrous skeeters say that turbochargers take too long to spool. Turbo spoolers say nitrous is too dangerous and detrimental to engine health. So, where does it all end? On this night, it ends on the street with which of these cars can Read More

Creamsicle 1956 Chevrolet – 3000+HP Twin Turbo Monster

November 21st, 2020

Never met a car enthusiast who didn’t have a vision of their dream ride. For many, it’s the 1955, 1956 and 1957 Chevrolet coupe models. Arguably, there is no model that more dramatically symbolizes the era of drive-ins, weekend cruises and drag racing as well as these “shoe-box Chevys”. Featured in this video is possibly the most pristine and bodacious example of a time in automotive history when the cars were heavy, the fins were tall, and the chrome was plentiful. Have a look. Built for the grueling event known as Hot Rod Drag Week, with its multiple drag racing Read More

Chevrolet Corvette Z06 vs. Ducati 800 – Street Hits

November 20th, 2020

Late Model Racecraft (LMR) is quietly producing some of the baddest Chevy street cars through high-performance aftermarket modification and tuning. Today, these guys are taking one of their latest project cars out for some real-world tuning. Let’s see what happens when a fellow citizen on a sport bike issues a friendly challenge. The car is a C7 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. The Z06 is powered by a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 capable of producing 650hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. LMR has added a simple bolt-on package that includes a Quartz Performance heat exchanger. It is slightly larger than the factory unit. Read More

Stock Drag Race – 1969 Corvette 427 vs. 1973 Firebird Formula 455

November 19th, 2020

This clip documents what some would call “old school drag racing”. The cars are – believe it or not – some of the most capable of their era. Today, it seems implausible that the most feared of the original muscle cars only made (approximately) half the horsepower produced by some of the hottest modern factory performance coupes, sedans and sport utility vehicles. Nevertheless, it should be quite interesting to see these two top tier muscle cars battle it out on the dragstrip. In the right lane is a prime example of one of the most intimidating muscle cars ever produced. Read More

Underground Racing Built 1300HP Audi R8 V10 Plus – Street Hits

November 18th, 2020

Cipher this riddle for me: What is virtually the same as a Lamborghini Huracan, right down to the V10 engine and monocoque chassis, but costs a hundred grand less? How about an Audi R8 V10 Plus? The R8 and the Huracan are both produced by the Volkswagen Group using the same powertrain and general format. That’s a win/win proposition. Now add a Stage 3 Package (with billet cylinder heads) from Underground Racing (UGR) and you have a genuine street monster. Let’s take a look. First impressions? What can’t be overlooked is that this car looks and sounds amazing, and the Read More

Missing – Calvo Built Dodge Viper ACR

November 17th, 2020

This well produced video opens with Anthony Calvo (owner of Calvo Motorsports) having an absolute cow. Seems that his newly modified Dodge Viper ACR has been stolen from right under his nose, during the roll racing action at FL2K. As it turns out, one of Anthony’s friends (and clients) is playing a sick practical joke on him. Just before the “crime” is reported to the police, the perpetrator returns the Viper to its rightful owner. After some good-natured ribbing and other shenanigans, everything returns to normal and the Calvo Motorsports team is ready to focus their attention back to the Read More

Rowing Gears – 8-Second Stick Shift Camaros at Street Car Takeover Atlanta

November 12th, 2020

Fittingly wearing the name “Moore HP”, this team showed up at Street Car Takeover in Commerce, Georgia and made it clear that they weren’t there to take part. They were there to take over! Though both the Moore HP cars are equipped with manual gearboxes – and both are Chevrolet Camaros – that is where the similarities end. The first of these 8-second nightmares is a Gen IV Camaro (F Body) with a twin turbocharged 4.7-liter LS motor. The transmission is a Tick Performance T-56 (face-plated) and the clutch is by Black Magic. This silver bullet is running E85 fuel. Read More
