New Mexico Cash Days – Big Money Street Digs

April 24th, 2018

This is street (dig) racing at its best. It is coming at you from the desert of Mexico on a perfect night when some really bad cars were on hand. This is single elimination dig racing with the top four places finishing in the money. Don’t cut the light early. Don’t cross the center-line. Get from point A to point B before the guy in the other lane and you advance to the next round. Simple right? If it were everybody would be doing it. Here are some of the competitors:   A Nissan 300ZX (800whp) 3.0-liter V6 with a Read More

Corvette King – 2010 ZR1 vs 2019 ZR1

April 5th, 2018

Greetings drag racing fans and welcome to the Cecil County Dragway for an epic battle between two variants of the big, bad ZR1 ‘Vette. We are all looking forward to seeing what these bad bowties can do but the staging lanes are packed with awesome cars of virtually every variety. There is a bad looking vintage Mopar, a Porsche, numerous Mustangs (of all types), and even a McLaren. All that is in addition to the feature race between these two Chevys.   The star of the show is the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. As far as we can tell, this Read More

Unicorn C6 Corvette – 7-Second Quarter-Mile

March 21st, 2018

Greetings race fans! It’s drag racing time at TX2K18 from Houston, Texas. The sky is overcast on this first day of drag racing and the temperature is ideal for some record breaking runs. Miller Prep has been skillfully preparing the track for this monumental occasion and the elite contenders are all lined up in the staging lanes. Get ready for a day of drag racing in which 7-second passes are more the norm than the exception. Notably on hand is the twin turbocharged Unicorn C6 Corvette, the Boostin Performance Red Demon DSM, and Cleetus in the junkyard contraption that he Read More

California Dreamin’ – Street Rolls

March 9th, 2018

It’s back to the left coast again for a healthy dose of beautiful sunshine, sea air, and sand in our flip flops – er, no – what we seek is open interstate, gasoline fumes, and hot floorboards. That’s exactly what we got from this outstanding group of street (roll) racers, south of the border. The action kicks off when the sun goes down with an all-wheel drive Honda CR-V that has been outfitted with a turbocharger. It has a 2.0-liter V-TEC engine and has undergone some basic weight reduction. There’s a twin turbo Dodge Viper running E85. A pair of Read More

California Cash Days – LA Street Rolls

February 28th, 2018

This video takes the concept of Cash Days and applies it to a group of roll racers – then drops the whole thing into the crowded metropolis of Los Angeles. This is set to be single elimination, controlled roll racing. Eight cars are involved with a $200 buy-in; winner take all but when law enforcement appears on the scene it is turned into a total cluster freak. Check it out. First up is a Lamborghini Huracan with twin turbos rolling out against a Honda Civic with a giant (70-millimeter) turbocharger protruding through the hood and a massive intercooler busting through Read More

860HP Honda Civic – Tech Line and Drags

January 10th, 2018

Greetings drag racing fans and welcome to a a night of  “run whacha brung” drag racing action at the Irwindale Event Center (⅛-mile) in sunny California. Tonight we are joined by the guys from HighEnd Autosports and their front-wheel drive Honda Civic race car. This turbocharged sport sedan is equipped with everything it takes to line up and put down a solid pass on the street or strip. After getting the Honda on the trailer and heading out to Irwindale, the guys find themselves a bit behind the eight-ball with a ton of competitors ahead of them in the tech Read More

AWD Civic – 7-Second Beast  

December 22nd, 2017

It’s difficult to make my mouth say that a snot green Honda hatchback is a beast but this car certainly has beastly characteristics. It comes out of the hole like a bullet and flies through the trap in the 7-second range (consistently). When you consider that it blows through the quarter-mile at approximately 190 -195 mph, it is even more impressive and hard to believe that it is a four-banger. The engine is a K20 (2.0-liter) Honda unit with a big turbocharger. The owner explains that it has dyno tested at 1,100whp but he has the boost turned up even Read More

Turbo Acura V8 Killer

December 11th, 2017

You can imagine our surprise. After all, it isn’t everyday that we pull up to an event like Street Car Takeover Phoenix (Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park) and find a front-wheel drive Acura Integra going on about quenching some V8 dreams. Even more to our amazement was the tiny four-cylinder engine underneath the hood. Before the day was done in Wild Horse Pass, we would discover that the fella’ with the biggest gun doesn’t always have the fastest bullet. The car was setup to campaign in the Front-Wheel Drive Class but a lack of FWD competitors resulted in a move Read More

Twin Turbo HEMI 300 Street Hits

December 4th, 2017

Welcome aboard Mopar Airways Flight 160 (mph that is). Place your luggage in the overhead storage bins and buckle your safety belts. You are about to be treated to some low altitude passes in a Chrysler 300C luxury liner. The Texas (Mexico) streets are hot tonight and this Chrysler sedan is a big reason why. It is trolling for some roll racing action and finding it in droves. This Chrysler 300C has been treated to an engine upgrade. The new mill is a 404 cubic-inch stroker HEMI. It has a pair of bottom-mounted Precision 6766 turbochargers that are being water Read More

7-Second FWD Turbo Civic

November 16th, 2017

It is hard enough to get a quarter-mile drag car into the sevens when you have an unlimited budget and all the cubic inches that will fit under the hood. Getting (consistently) into the sevens with a limited budget and using a four-cylinder, front-wheel drive platform is simply outstanding. Kudos to Ramey Racing (and friends), who transformed this seriously unimpressive sport coupe into the track taming hurricane that you see in this video. On this day, they earned the honor of preparing the first vehicle in the Sports Front-Wheel Drive Class to post a 7-second elapsed time in the quarter-mile Read More
