Sunset Street Racing South of the Border

January 29th, 2016

This clip has some great heads-up roll racing from the streets of “Old Mexico” – coming at you in all its glory. The cars are primed and the drivers are revved-up for action, so you know it’s going to be an interesting night. The Cadillac CTS-Vs are out in force but our first matchup is between a 5.0-liter Ford Mustang and a 6.4-liter HEMI Chrysler 300 SRT. These two break even as far as I can tell; then the Chrysler rolls out against a CTS-V (6.2-liter supercharged). The Caddy jumps on him and walks the dog all the way to Read More

Wild, Wild West Street Racing

January 21st, 2016

This clip details a cowboy’s night out on the streets of Phoenix, Arizona. Instead of horses and six-guns, these cowboys are packing forced air induction and nitrous oxide. It’s night-time dig racing on the highways and byways of one of the west’s largest cities. This action is insane – don’t miss it. There’s a hood scoop with a nitrous V8 Chevy Monza attached to it. This thing is more show than go and gets dusted by one Fox Body nitrous Mustang before beating another. At any rate, it’s refreshing to see a Monza again; you hardly ever see them anymore. There’s Read More

800HP Turbo Civic Takes on All Challengers

January 14th, 2016

This video shows a seriously tricked out Honda Civic with a built and sleeved GSR engine, a 67/72 turbocharger, and a Javi tuner in some competitive heads-up roll racing on the streets. He is taking on all challengers. There is a GTR that locks horns with the little Honda only to find out that he paid way too much to be getting whooped by a lowly Civic. Then there’s a couple of bad bikes and a Honda S2000 that gets left in the lurch. After that, it’s off to the track where the roll racing continues. If you like roll Read More

World’s Fastest S2000 Runs 7.17 @ 192 MPH

December 8th, 2015

This clip brings us the world record setting 1/4-mile run of a Honda S2000. This coupe is built, tuned, and campaigned by the gang at Real St. It is sporting a set of 10.5-inch wide racing slicks and this thing really hooks up and blasts down the track. I know it is Real St. but you really don’t want to go up against this import on the street – or do you? Believe it or not, this Honda is still equipped with a 2.2-liter inline four-cylinder (F22C) engine built by Inline PRO. It has also been upgraded with an 82-millimeter Precision turbocharger. The Read More

SEMA 2015 Highlights

December 3rd, 2015

If you (like I) missed the 2015 SEMA show in Las Vegas, here are a few video highlights that may help to soothe the wound. For starters there’s a full-custom JDM Nissan Sunny pickup with a tricked out SR-20 four-cylinder engine. This contraption weighs only about 1,800-pounds and makes 450hp. Next, we have an E28 BMW. You will seldom see a wilder suspension setup than the one on this car. It’s inboard mounted and push rod activated with aluminum mounts. The engine is an inline 6-cylinder (dry-sump oiling system) that has been seriously beefed up by VAC Motorsports in Philadelphia. Read More

Twin Turbo V8 Powered Honda Civic

October 29th, 2015

After four-years Jeff Lutz Jr. finally got to campaign his CRAZY 1989 Honda Civic during Drag Week 2015. This highly modified import has garnered some degree of internet fame during the last few years. Weighing only 2,300-pounds, this car can already sprint through the 1320 in the 7-second range and we expect some really special things once Jeff gets the boost tuned in. No more v-tec for this Civic. A tube chassis supports a massive 434-cubic-inch-diameter V8 Vinson Race engine with a pair of Precision 76-millimeter turbos (good for 1,000hp!). Jeff and the crew fought some headaches during Drag Week Read More

Street Racing – New Mexico Style

October 23rd, 2015

This video is over 6-minutes of heads-up dig (and roll) racing on the streets of New Mexico. All the likely suspects are present and the action is “muy caliente”. Here are some of the highlights from racing into the New Mexico night. A 740hp 2004 Subaru WRX STi with a Precision 6466 turbocharger destroys a 600hp WRX STi. The Terminator Mustang Cobra takes apart a 700hp all-wheel drive Honda Civic, a 400hp Dodge Neon, and gives a 750hp Mitsubishi Evo a good run for his money. A 600hp twin turbocharged Infiniti G35 goes against a 630hp Cadillac CTS-V and a 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

Viper TA Takes On 1000HP Nissan GT-R

September 17th, 2015

The DriverMod Viper TA is unleashed! That’s right – it is not chained to a dyno this time – it’s taking it to the streets against another radically modified beast of an automobile. Aptly named “Godzilla”, the Nissan GT-R is one of the most feared machines on the street. As a bonus, they are running against a stock Honda CBR1000 motorcycle. As seen a few days ago on DragTimes, the Viper TA engine is stock with an intake manifold upgrade, exhaust headers, and a 250 shot of Nitrous Outlet giggling gas. It is riding on CCW C12 racing wheels and Read More

700HP IMW Honda Civic Battles Supercars

September 15th, 2015

Check out this footage of the Innovative Motor Works Honda Civic going toe-to-toe with some exotic supercars. The business of the day is done as 65 mph roll racing. First, the “little import that could” lines up against a mighty 700hp Mustang Shelby GT500 and whips him handily. Next up is a turbocharged Toyota Supra, which is also narrowly dispatched. The Civic isn’t able to get a handle on the awesome sounding supercharged 775hp Corvette and gets beaten by a nose. Finally, an odd contest with a lame Huracan and a bad Bavarian wins easily. The Civic is outfitted with Read More
