9-Second EVO – Dragstrip and AWD Dyno

August 26th, 2018

Ran across this crushing orange EVO 8 at the 2018 Diamond Star Motors (DSM) Shootout in Ohio. Kasey was understandably proud of this build and managed to put up low-nine-second passes all day with a best (ever) of 9.29-seconds @ 155 mph. Here’s the rundown on this awesome looking 2003 EVO: At the heart of this beast is a 2.3-liter 4G63 engine built by Buschur Racing with a Manley crankshaft and connecting rods (pistons are by JE). The cylinder head is a BZE (CNC) unit with a set of GSC Power Division S3 camshafts. An Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) turbo Read More

Corvette vs. Mustang – Street Hits

August 22nd, 2018

Like a pack of wild dogs these Corvettes are attacking a Mustang like he’s got peanut butter smeared all over his undercarriage. These things are crazy-fast and ripping through the streets of Old Mexico like a hot knife through butter. Come on and have a gander. You know it’s going to be a great night when your camera car is a (black) Corvette ZR1 with a camshaft and cylinder head upgrade. Oh, and don’t forget a Kong ported blower treatment with an ice water intercooler. Opening up these blowers is yielding some amazing gains in horsepower and torque. Climb in Read More

Turbo Fox Body – 7-Second Small Tire Monster

August 17th, 2018

Welcome drag racing fans to the Street Car Takeover, Denver.

1000HP LS Swapped RX8 – Street Rolls

August 16th, 2018

This is my kind of street racer. I love a small car with a big old engine and a power-adder (or two). Well, they certainly don’t get much smaller than the Mazda RX8. In factory trim, it weighs in at a scant 2,800-pounds; is 175-inches long, 70-inches wide, and 60-inches tall. Now, outfitted with a 6.0-liter GM V8 engine and a TH400 GM transmission, the little Mazda tips the scales a bit heavier but makes it up in horse power and acceleration. Oh, best not forget – a pair of turbochargers, too. Let’s get down to Old Mexico and get Read More

1000WHP Forza Hellcat Street Hits

August 14th, 2018

Forza Tuning and Performance in Clearwater, Florida is turning out some of the baddest Dodge Challenger Hellcat contenders on street or strip. The feature car in this video is an example of the magic that can happen when a high-performance tuning facility and a car owner think outside the box. Like most ultra-modern speed shops, Forza provides a diverse array of preconfigured performance packages for the Hellcat, Demon, and many other vehicles. Unlike other hot rod shops, Forza is glad to go the extra mile when really fast just ain’t fast enough. After maxing his Challenger Hellcat out with a Read More

Fastest 2018 Mustang – Taking it to the Street

August 10th, 2018

This tale begins with a beautiful 2018 Ford Mustang. The pony car has been treated to a pair of turbochargers via an Aldo Welds TT Kit. The car is prepared by Midnight Performance and tuned by Lund Racing. Let’s see what happens when he hits the streets (of Mexico). Alas! Our first victim is a 900hp Chevy Corvette ZR1. As we pull onto the interstate; he rolls alongside for a 60 to 120 pass. In multiple hits, the ‘Vette gets the jump, but the Mustang squeezes him out at the end of each. Next, we have a twin turbo Camaro Read More

Mercedes-Benz AMG GT-R vs. Lambo, Nissan GT-R, ZR1

August 9th, 2018

Welcome and thanks for joining us at the Palm Beach International Raceway in beautiful, sunny Florida. Today, we will see the much-heralded Mercedes-Benz AMG GT-R take-on the likes of a tuned Jeep Trackhawk, a 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, a 2017 Nissan GT-R, and a Lamborghini Huracan. Competition today is set to include drag racing and roll racing. As the track heats up so does the roll racing action with the tuned (by Gearhead) Trackhawk jumping on the AMG GT-R. Green Hell drives around him FTW! Next up, we have our own in the red Lamborghini Huracan. From the dig, Brooks Read More

Don’t overlook our brothers and sisters of speed and horsepower in the great pacific Northwest. Spokane County (Washington) Raceway and Street Car Takeover deliver with some of the maddest vehicles in the land battling it out in drag and roll racing action. Have a gander for yourself. Right out of the gate – we have some mad cap roll racing hits. These guys are wide open with lots of imports (as one might expect) and top speeds in the 160-mph zone. Then there’s the Pontiac that loses it entering the trap and goes all headlights-taillights-headlights-taillights but never hits either wall Read More
