Turbo Supra Takes On a Yamaha R1M in a Street Race

November 13th, 2015

It hasn’t been all that many years ago that jumping on a street bike in a four-wheeler was considered absurd. With the development of today’s turbochargers, nitrous systems, and superchargers (or the combination thereof), it is nothing for a car to walk the dog on even a highly modified motorcycle. The question is: Can this Real Street built Toyota Supra get the bulge on an enhanced Yamaha R1M? Take a look at this video and find out for yourself. The sport bike has undergone some cylinder head work. It has adjustable camshaft sprockets, an Akrapovic exhaust, and a custom tuner. Read More

Quarter-Mile Record Holding 617HP AWD Taurus

November 13th, 2015

So you want to rip up the track in a sedan? Try this one on for size. How about an all-wheel drive 2010 Ford Taurus SHO? This bad boy holds the world’s record for the EcoBoost platform (in the 1/4-mile drag racing segment). It laid down an 11.5-second pass at 119.49 mph in November 2015. This video shows us the professionals at Livernois Motorsports as they go about their business putting together a bulletproof 3.5-liter EcoBoost with proprietary four bolt main caps and cylinder head studs. This thing is line bored, balanced, and blue printed to be extremely smooth and Read More

November 9th, 2015

The fantastic looking Baltic Toyota Supra is ripping up the streets again in this epic street battle with a souped-up Porsche 997. This video brings you multiple passes with several GoPro camera angles that put you inside of each car. Believe it or not, the Supra proves to be way too much for the Porsche to handle. Check it out.

Real Street beefed up the 3.4-liter engine with a set of Carillo H-Beam connecting rods, CP 9:1 pistons, Titan billet main bearing Read More

Trailer Trash LS Malibu Runs 8.90 Quarter-Mile

November 4th, 2015

Building a drag car on a budget ain’t pretty. Building a turbocharged drag car on a budget can get downright ugly. This Malibu may be ugly but the time slips keep getting prettier with each pass. Sure the paint job is a mess, the wheels are mismatched, and the interior is ratty but this Chevy managed to dive down into the eights, putting up an 8.90-second 1/4-mile pass at 150.8 mph. The engine is a stock Chevrolet 5.3-liter LS with a stock crankshaft and cylinder heads. It does have upgraded connecting rods, wrist pins, and pistons. A Borg Warner 88-millimeter Read More

Stolen Lambo vs Fatt Cat’s Challenger

November 3rd, 2015

When street racing, it pays to “Drive it like you stole it”, as the old saying goes. In this clip it is alleged that the driver of the 2015 Lamborghini Huracan may have actually stole it. He is an automobile transporter out on the town and looking for a thrill. If you only have one shot at seeing how you measure up in a street race, then you’ll want to head down south of the border (I didn’t know that there was a city in Mexico called Houston, hmmm) and look up a hustler named Fatt Cat. Chances are that Read More

Cadillac CTS-V Battles Dodge Viper on the Street

October 29th, 2015

In the real world of street racing Caddys don’t rub fenders with Vipers – or do they? In this clip at least one Cadillac not only takes on an SRT Viper but leaves it in its tracks. This video consists of two passes. In the first pass, the Viper has the go-go juice turned up to 1,100 psi and he gives the CTS-V a decent run.  In the second run, the Viper turns the laughing gas down to 900 psi and only puts forth a paltry effort, at best. Both cars are equipped with a healthy dose of NOS from Read More

180 MPH Street Race – GT-R vs CBR1000

October 22nd, 2015

In a contest of speed between a motorcycle and a car, my first instinct is to say that the bike will win. This logic typically proves sound, particularly when the bike is a stretched Honda CBR1000RR. The Honda is capable of going from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.5-seconds and can reach 100 mph in only 6.5-seconds, so what kind of car could touch it in a street race? Let’s take a look. A car that is nick-named after a creature known to terrorize and destroy large cities must certainly be able to hold its own on the streets. Read More

Taking it to the Streets Camaro LS1

October 20th, 2015

With only exhaust headers, a cold air intake, and a slight camshaft upgrade, this 2002 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 LS1 is spanking some serious arse on the streets of a well known South American country. Rapid acceleration and smooth shifts help to propel this bad bowtie to victories against some pretty impressive competition. As night falls south of the border, the street racing heats up. The first challenger is an LS3 powered C6 Grand Sport. The Z28 makes quick work of this guy and moves on to the evening’s next victim. The next contest is with a Chrysler 300 SRT8 and Read More

Airstrip Attack Corvette Z06 vs Mustang Shelby GT500

October 15th, 2015

In this epic battle that is nearly as old as high-performance cars themselves, a Chevrolet and a Ford line up and go head-to-head. This modern day affair features a high-flying Chevrolet C6 Corvette Z06 and a top-of-the-line 2014 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. The scene is set on a closed airstrip at the New Coalinga Municipal Airport in Coalinga, California during the ShiftS3ctor Airstrip Attack 8 event. It’s half-mile dig racing at its best between two prime time nearly stock hot rods. The Mustang is bone stock but the Shelby GT500 package, with a 662hp 5.8-liter supercharged DOHC V8 and manual Read More

2100HP Twin Turbo Audi R8

October 9th, 2015

This video depicts what is being touted as the world’s fastest Audi. It is an R8 that is stock in appearance. It has all of the amenities of a luxurious street car; air conditioning, power windows, satellite radio, even heated leather power seats. This is a fantastic looking car that manages to claim the title “King of the Streets” at the 2015 Texas Invitational Fall Airstrip Attack – now, that ain’t no easy task. This car gets by with the Underground Racing X Package, a pair of Precision 76-millimeter turbochargers, and it’s riding on Toyo R888 street tires. The little Read More
