Turbo Tahoe Tire Toaster

October 17th, 2017

This is one bad grocery-getter. Shane Cook decided to take his full-bodied Chevrolet Tahoe and transform it into a 9-second (@ 135 – 140 mph) tire smoking monster. This clip takes us from the dyno room (857whp and 832 lb.-ft. of torque) to the street and finally to the drag strip. Once Shane gets the Tahoe to the strip, he whips up on as many Camaros and Mustangs as he can find. The Chuck Wagon (Cook’s) is equipped with a 5.3-liter engine that has been upgraded with a pair of ported 862 cylinder heads, a Tick Performance camshaft, and a Read More

1964 GTO – Street Car Takeover

October 13th, 2017

With the memory of their deceased friend Mike as inspiration, this loyal group of friends and racing enthusiasts prepared this 1964 Pontiac GTO for the drag strip. After torqueing every last bolt and buckling Mike’s urn and ashes into the front seat, they set off for Tucson and the Street Car Takeover. Little did they know what a dramatic weekend of racing action was in store. The Goat was a one-owner car, purchased new by Mike’s dad. This band of compadres rebuilt the muscle car with a 428 Pontiac stroker kit (bored over to 467 cubic-inches). It has all the Read More

NA Viper Incinerates the Interstate

October 9th, 2017

Who says you have to have a power adder to win on the street? Everybody has got them these days. Turbochargers, superchargers, and nitrous – some racers even stack them just for good measure. I love them (and run them myself) but are they a must have? What happens when a good old boy decides to go with a whole mountain of naturally aspirated (NA) cubic inches in a high performance street beast? In this case, they call it SneakySnake. It’s an unassuming Dodge Viper (as unassuming as a Viper can be) and it is out to prove a point Read More

1160HP Koenigsegg Agera RS 0-400-0

October 6th, 2017

In proving that their product is up to the 0-400-0 challenge, Swedish automaker Koenigsegg gained exclusive access to an airstrip (and the largest solar farm in Scandanavia) in Vandel, Denmark. This was done for the sole purpose of testing their newly updated supercar, the Agera RS, in a 0-400-0 timed trial. This timed trial is not just for kicks and giggles. Christian von Koenigsegg, not being the type of individual to accept anything less than excellence, wanted to see the Agera RS best the world record 0-400-0 time of 41.96-seconds, set by Juan Pablo Montoya in a Bugatti Chiron (September Read More

Mustang GT500 vs Turbo Corvette – Street Rolls

October 5th, 2017

Your chariot awaits. Climb on board and buckle up for some crazy street racing action. The camera car is a Shelby GT500 Mustang that has been outfitted with a Kenne Bell 3.6-liter supercharger. It’s running E85 fuel. You’ve heard of kicking butt and taking names? (if not, just ask your grandpa). Well this Ford is definitely taking pictures but is it kicking butt? Let’s find out. The first contest is between the camera car and a Corvette Z06 with a camshaft upgrade and the full line of bolt-on accoutrement. It looks like the ‘Vette got gapped. Next, we have some Read More

840HP Charger Hellcat – Street Rolls

October 1st, 2017

When the camera car is a 1,300hp Nissan GT-R, it is a good indication that the video contains some elite level street (roll) racing action. That was certainly the case during this night of street racing down in Houston (Mexico). There is a whole bevy of amazing street cars in this clip. After a short show-and-tell session, the competitors take to the highway where the action gets started. A 1,200whp Pontiac Trans Am Formula (6.0-liter engine, LS3 cylinder heads, and an 88-millimeter turbocharger) gets spanked by the camera car (1,300hp Boost Logic GT-R). Both these cars chew up blacktop like Read More

2018 Dodge Demon – Track Testing

September 30th, 2017

Just when you thought it was safe to go back on the streets – the SRT division of Dodge rolls out the Challenger SRT Demon. It makes the Hellcat seem like a pussy cat by bringing production car performance into a whole new realm. This video documents real world track testing of this incredible beast. It is almost unbelievable that a production car has the capacity to produce 840hp (808hp on pump gas) and 770 lb.-ft. of torque; much less accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.3-seconds (and that’s not to mention a quarter-mile elapsed time of less Read More

6-Second Toyota Corolla Goes Haywire

September 29th, 2017

Buckle up racing fans and get ready for a wild ride! It doesn’t get much wilder than (low) 6-second elapsed times (quarter-mile) at 230+ MPH – unless you are doing it in a tiny Toyota Corolla (3/4 chassis modified) with an inline 6-cylinder engine. The power plant is a single turbocharged (bigger than an 88-millimeter) 2JZ Toyota unit. This crew managed to produce pretty consistent low 6-second (6.04 @ 236.88 mph) elapsed times that had everybody wondering if they would dip into the fives. I think it is going to happen soon. While some Toyota purists consider the AE86 Trueno Read More

Turbo Chevy Pickups Take to the Streets

September 29th, 2017

Just in case you were wondering what good ol’ boys do on Saturday night… How about bolting a big old turbocharger to your ruggedly dependable Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and taking to the highway (after a brief meet and greet at the Auto Zone in Mexico) for some roll racing? These guys are serious competitors and they ain’t backing down from nobody. The first Chevy (we’ll call it Gray), rolls out against a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 with a full accoutrement of aftermarket bolt-ons and a camshaft upgrade. We are talking about the top-tier Corvette. It seems like the ZR1 has the Read More

8-Second Old School Cadillac Coupe de Ville

September 29th, 2017

When I say that this car is a massive sleeper – I mean that it is huge. It’s a 1978 Cadillac Coupe de Ville and it is a big and heavy ride. This thing has all the bells and whistles but can a giant luxury coupe also be quick? You can answer that question for yourself. Is a car that posts consistent 8-second elapsed times at 150 mph (quarter-mile) considered quick – in a word – yes. This beast showed up at LS Fest with a professionally built 565 cubic-inch LS motor and a pair of turbochargers. I don’t know Read More
