Tesla P100D vs. Dodge Challenger Hellcat – Street Car Takeover

May 20th, 2019

Hello racing fans and welcome back to Thunder Valley at Bristol Dragway in beautiful Bristol, Tennessee. Our focal car today is a familiar one to most YouTubers. It is a Tesla P100D that has been whipping muscle cars all over the country. With all-electric power, this thing blasts out of the hole like a rocket and posts very consistent elapsed times. This makes the Tesla ideal for Index Racing. Unlike conventional drag racing, in which a competitor gets down the track as quickly as possible, Index Racing is the practice of selecting a time just slower than your fastest ever Read More

Exotic Drag and Roll – McLaren vs Porsche

May 17th, 2019

No. You are not likely to see this drag race produced from your average Saturday night car show. These two cars are about as exotic as they come, and both are terribly expensive. Let’s take a closer look. The Porsche is a 911 GT2 RS which means that it is basically a road race car. It is a rear-engine, rear-wheel drive, hardtop, coupe, with an automatic transmission (7-speed dual-clutch). The engine is a 3.8-liter, twin turbocharged, boxer, and it is capable of producing 700hp. With a 0 to 60 mph time of only 2.7-seconds, this beautiful German entry should be Read More

Cootamundra 2JZ King Supra

May 16th, 2019

Drag racing from Down Under – it’s the Motive Runway Thrash – and we’ve got the King of the six-cylinder Supras in this event. This right-hand drive Toyota Supra is a real beauty. Looking for a new challenge? How about racing in the Rear-Wheel Drive Class, in a car that is capable of producing more than 1,100hp; on an abandoned airstrip? After more than 500-competitors have cut the light at this venue, only approximately ten have posted an elapsed time of less than 10-seconds. This is a tough track. The car is a right-hand drive Toyota Supra. It is powered Read More

May 15th, 2019

Greetings racing fans and welcome to Street Car Takeover, coming to you from Bristol Dragway in Bristol, TN. Featured in the Small Tire Street Racer Class is this pristine ’67 Ford Fairlane with a modular engine and a pair of power adders. At 3,800-pounds, the car is a complete street beast – make no mistake about that. It is rocking a late model Coyote engine with some billet valve covers that make heads turn. There are also a pair of turbochargers churning away under the hood. The tidy combination is good for getting this sexy hunk of American muscle down Read More

Street Racing Cali-Style – Roll and Dig

May 13th, 2019

Let’s head to Northern California (Mexico) – where the beaches are warm and the nights are cool – for some street racing action. On hand for two sessions of racing are all types of power-adders, numerous makes, and multiple setups. There are supercharged, turbocharged, naturally aspirated, and nitrous enhanced vehicles from the U.S. and abroad. Here we go! The morning session is focused solely on dig racing. The first contest is between a C6 Corvette (408 cubic-inch motor, ProCharger, nitrous – 930hp) and a naturally aspirated Chevy Camaro Z28. Both cars cut the light precisely and the Camaro totes the Read More

Turbo Vette – 2500HP Brute

May 10th, 2019

It’s Street Car Takeover at Thunder Valley and our feature car for this clip is a real bruiser. With a 460 cubic-inch motor and a 118-millimeter turbocharger, this potent Chevy is expected to rule the field if he can get all those ponies to the pavement successfully. In addition to the big LSx engine and turbo, this car has Kook’s stainless exhaust headers, a dry-sump oiling system, and it has been swapped to a solid rear axle setup. Thompson Motorsports built the car, and this is only the fifth or sixth outing. When these guys get the bugs worked out, Read More

735HP 2JZ Lexus SE430 – Street Hits and Dyno

May 6th, 2019

So, one beautiful summer evening you are out trolling the streets (of Mexico) when you come across a Lexus coupe. The driver is giving you the stink eye. You know the one – like he wants to take your cookies. You tell yourself that he wants none, but realize that his little Lexus started life with a V8. The two of you roll onto the freeway for some racing. He pulls alongside and gives you the signal. Before you know it, he’s blown by and all you can see are taillights. Thing is, the car looked stock and you never Read More

CTS-V vs. Mustang and Corvette – Street Hits

May 4th, 2019

As the summer evenings grow warmer and the risk of precipitation is reduced, the sounds of high-performance, interstate devouring, roll race cars can be heard. The late evening and early morning hours, when traffic is virtually non-existent, are prime-time for rolling these purpose-built machines onto the highway (of Mexico) for competition. Many heavily modified roll racers have showed up for this evening of fun. There is a Corvette C7 with a camshaft upgrade, a V-7 YSI Supercharger by Vortech, and a methanol injection. A 1,000hp Nissan GT-R and another (980hp) ‘Vette with an LSx engine and a YSI blower. This Read More

9-Second C7 ZR1 – Stock Motor Bolt-On Record Holder

May 2nd, 2019

At the risk of dating myself, I will tell you that the release of the movie “Corvette Summer” found a teenage version of myself in the local cinema; popcorn and soft drink in hand. The fact that actors played parts in the cult classic was of no consequence to me. The radically customized Corvette was the star and I shall never forget her. The ZR1 featured in this clip, while lacking the insane body mods, makes me think of a modernized version of the Corvette Summer car. Coming at you from Street Car Takeover and being touted as the World Read More

Texas Rattlesnake – Heir to the Throne of No-Prep?

May 1st, 2019

Greetings racing fans and welcome to Bounty Hunters No-Prep Grudge Nationals IV. Meet Ronnie Hobbs and his Canary Yellow Chevrolet S10; known as the Texas Rattlesnake. This impressive reptile is away on her maiden voyage and running in the Big Tire Class. She’s packing a serious punch from a 564 cubic-inch Brad Anderson Enterprises (BAE) mill, topped off with a pair of 98-millimeter Precision turbochargers. Major power output capacity is the result – to the tune of approximately 3,000hp! As with any fresh build, this truck is working through the bugs, but is exceptionally well-built and no expense has been Read More
