Turbo Fox Body – 7-Second Small Tire Monster

August 17th, 2018

Welcome drag racing fans to the Street Car Takeover, Denver. Some of the baddest drag racers in the U.S. have braved the high altitude and battled the mountains to come together in this contest of traction and power. Our feature car for this clip is a Fox Body Ford Mustang competing in the Street Car Class and the Small Tire Class. Under the hood is a 540 cubic-inch Big Block Chevy with ASR cylinder heads and a Precision PT118 turbocharger (118-millimeter). Power is estimated to be in the 1,600hp range and the car posted a 7.94-second elapsed time @ 182.43 Read More

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

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

9-Second 1965 Chevy Impala

August 9th, 2018

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

Cash and Carry Street Racing – $5200 Prize

August 3rd, 2018

Take a look at this top shelf street racing (drags) video. This one reminds me of home, even though I know it is filmed down in Mexico. A large group of the baddest and boldest street racers in the continental U.S. has gathered for this auspicious occasion to burn up fuel, apply some rubber to the pavement, and see who can claim bragging rights as king of Cash Days. Everyone is here. So, without further ado – run your car, not your mouth – as the man says. With everyone’s money turned in and darkness falling on this narrow strip Read More

Toyota Shop Truck Spanks Exotics

August 2nd, 2018

Greetings race fans and welcome to the historic Palm Beach International Raceway. Today, we are at the sight of the Toyota Invitational, presented by TRC. Exotic, classic, and high-performance vehicles from virtually every manufacturer are on hand and this is shaking out into a very successful event. Understandably, everyone is mingling about the expensive exotics and smoozing the supercar crowd. Nobody is checking out a plain looking Toyota pickup. Some seem to think that it might be a service truck or a shop truck but this little truck is officially registered and in it to win it! In the blink Read More

Second Chance Racing – Motivational Drags

August 2nd, 2018

If this one don’t get you fired up – your wood must be wet! Tanner is an inspiration to me and I believe he will have a similar effect on other racers and non-racers as well. Approximately one-year ago Tanner was involved in an accident while riding his motorcycle. The bike collided with a car and Tanner was badly injured. He lost a portion of both legs and had a severe spinal injury (among other things) that prompted doctors to predict that he would never walk again and he most surely would never drive. The best that the medical profession Read More

1967 Corvette Stingray – Half-Mile Monster

July 31st, 2018

The SHIFT S3CTOR Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack draws some of the most fabulous cars in the country into their abandoned airstrips to put up memorable top speed numbers. Nevertheless, nobody was expecting to see a vintage Corvette knocking off the likes of McLaren, Lamborghini, and Nissan GT-R entries. Until they began to take a closer look. Push past those classic Stingray lines and open the hood. You’ll find a more modern motif. The fuel injected (Holley controller) mill is a Chevrolet LT1 small block (5.7-liter) with a pair of 62-millimeter turbochargers (18 – 20 psi of boost). The transmission is Read More

9-Second V8 Turbo Mazda Miata

July 30th, 2018

Greetings drag racing fans and welcome! Allow me to introduce you to the Orange Crush Mazda Miata. This great looking little roadster is a purpose-built quarter-mile car that puts up consistent 9-second passes. With that said, the car owner has made it painfully clear that he is unsatisfied with nines and wants to get this radically modified import into the eights – and he wants to do it today. Modifications include a large Chevy LS V8 (6.2-liter) engine (professionally built) with a set of BRC cylinder heads. It has an oil-less Comp, rear-mount,  76-millimeter turbocharger and a 100-shot of nitrous Read More

Pavement Pounding Ohio Cash Days

July 28th, 2018

When it comes to street racing, it doesn’t get any more real than this. Fifteen of the baddest street racers in the midwest have gathered on this narrow strip of blacktop to determine who will be the top dog. With $3,300 on the line, these racers know the rules. Cut the light prematurely and you lose. Cross the centerline and you lose. Avoid these two pitfalls and cross the finish line first – you win and advance to the next round. Repeat that seven-times and take home the cash and the bragging rights. Simple, huh? We’ll see. First round call Read More
