Sedan Showdown – Mercedes-Benz AMG E63 S vs. Cadillac CTS-V

January 20th, 2018

While no battle of high-performance sedans can be exhaustive if it excludes the innovative (and quick) Tesla P90 SD, this contest pairs two of the most capable “grocery getters” on street or strip. The first is the 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG E63 S. Right outta the gate, you know that any entry bearing the famed AMG badge is outfitted to compete with every vehicle on the panet. This sedan is of the front-engine, all-wheel drive variety. It utilizes a 4.0-liter, DOHC, 32-valve, twin-turbocharged, V8 engine and a 9-speed automatic transmission. It is capable of producing 603hp (@ 5,750 rpm) and 627 Read More

C7 Corvette Z06 vs. Nissan GT-R – Street Rolls

January 18th, 2018

This video is taking it to the streets; the streets of Old Mexico, that is. The purpose of this venture is to document a night of interstate roll racing between some of the baddest imports and domestics to ever roll onto the highway. In our first contest of the evening, we have a Nissan GT-R that has been upgraded with a BoostLogic 1000x turbocharger setup. It is rolling against a C7 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (1,000hp). The ‘Vette has an issue getting into third gear during the initial pass but walks the Nissan in multiple passes after that. The next contest 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

VETKILR – 2JZ Mitsubishi Starion

January 12th, 2018

With a personalized license plate that reads “VETKILR” you might just as well have a target on your bumper. At the very least, you’d better have something under the hood to keep the wolves from the door (or rear bumper). If memory serves me, there was never anything impressive under the bonnet of a Mitsubishi Starion – not from the factory at least. That would explain why this DSM owner decided to take a different path to backing up his license plate. Sure, he could’ve went with an LS swap. I mean – it’s quick and economical but everybody is Read More

Street Hits – DSM EVO 8 vs. Corvette Z06

January 12th, 2018

In an earnest effort to prove that there is no replacement for displacement, this beautiful, black Chevrolet Corvette Z06 will take on an EVO 8 (with a big turbocharger) on the streets of Mexico. This C6 ‘Vette is of the Z06 variety. That means that is is equipped with a boisterous 7.0-liter (all-aluminum) V8 engine. From the factory it is capable of producing 505hp. It is equipped with titanium connecting rods and intake valves and has attention focused on maximizing air flow and valve timing. This particular car has been upgraded with high-performance cylinder heads, camshaft, and intake manifold. The Read More

Supercar Shootout – Palm Beach Raceway – Dig and Roll

January 12th, 2018

Greetings racing fans and welcome to Palm Beach Raceway in sunny Jupiter, Florida. While this gathering of exotic supercars could have well been conjured up on a gaming console, this is video evidence of an actual event that took place in the Sunshine State. On hand were some of the most popular high-performance sports cars on the planet. They got together to see which of them was the baddest all-around supercar. Some were modified and others were stock but every driver came into this event with a desire to prove their machine was superior to the rest. Up first are 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

1957 Chevy Wagon 8-Second Beast

January 11th, 2018

So, we caught up with Richie Crampton – NHRA Top Fuel Driver – during Hot Rod Drag Week. He allowed us to have a look at his unique 1957 Chevrolet Wagon (complete with a full tube 6.5 chrome-moly chassis and functional luggage rack) and told us a bit about the car. This car yields credence to the saying, “It ain’t how you look – it’s what you have under the hood.” In a day when you are accustomed to seeing cars that have been skillfully painted so that they resemble a barn (or pasture) find; with a rusted and faded Read More
