Low 7-Second Datsun Pickup

May 24th, 2017

Welcome drag racing fans on a videographical journey to the land down under. We are headed to Sydney, Australia for the Jamboree Event where we will be introduced to a ground pounding Datsun pickup with the unique combination of a massive turbocharger and a 4G63 Mitsubishi engine. Running in the Sub-Compact Class (because that’s what the Jamboree is about), this pretty Aussie racer tried her dearest to campaign this little Ute (Australian for sport utility vehicle) into 6-second territory. Take a look and see how it all shakes out! Coming into this event, the truck had posted a best E.T. Read More

POV – 9-Second McLaren 570S

May 18th, 2017

This video introduces us to what is officially the first McLaren 570S to ever post a 9-second quarter-mile elapsed time. That makes this British built supercar a world record holder of sorts. In my humble opinion, the McLaren 570S is a seriously amazing automobile, in factory trim. Each (entry level) mid-engine 570S that rolls off the assembly line (there are only about 4,000 produced annually) does so with a 502hp, 3.8-liter, twin-turbocharged, V8 engine that also makes 443 lb.-ft. of torque. It comes with a sequential, 7-speed gearbox and it is rear-wheel drive. In stock trim, the 570S can accelerate Read More

200 MPH on the Street

May 16th, 2017

If I were pressed to describe the footage documented in this video, I would simply call it elite level street racing (on the streets of Mexico). It must be considered so due to the extreme speeds achieved and the degree of modification and power capacity of the vehicles involved. The Lamborghini Superleggera featured is, after all, equipped with an Underground Racing (UR) Stage 3 Kit. As if that would not suffice, it also has been upgraded with a set of ported and polished race ready cylinder heads. This very bad girl is capable of producing more than 1,300hp to the Read More

Street Racing – Cali Style

May 16th, 2017

This is how it’s done in the Golden State. They are rolling them out on the interstate and running them like wildfire! A gathering of cars such as this virtually demands that a race ensue. It matters not where they meet; just that inside the chest of every driver beats the heart of a competitor. This time they meet on the streets – the streets of La-La Land – Los Angeles (Mexico), that is. There are several Nissans (of the GT-R variety), a 2.0-liter Evo (650hp) building 40 psi of boost, a stock (LS2) motor ‘Vette (660hp) with a V1 Read More

2200HP TT Big Block Mazda RX7

May 12th, 2017

Do you like surprises? If you do, then you’ll love this tricked out Mazda RX7. Never mind the awesome emerald green paint job. Sure, it looks great but the real treat is under the hood. It is full to the brim under there with a giant 555 cubic-inch Chevrolet big block and a pair of massive Garrett 88-millimeter turbochargers. Talk about a shocking revelation! This car is capable of producing an estimated 2,200hp (the dyno can only register a maximum of 2,000hp). The green machine just hooks up and goes straight down the track – every time. It has posted Read More

1200HP Corvette – Godzilla Killa

May 10th, 2017

One doesn’t often see a modest Chevrolet Corvette walking away with the crown (Sport Class) in a roll racing event the size of TX2K17. It is even more unexpected to see such an occurrence when there are cars like the Nissan GT-R (Godzilla), Lamborghini Huracan, and the mighty Dodge Viper on hand. Add the fact that this C5 Vette is equipped with a manual transmission and you have a real phenomenon. This 2-seater is powered by a 408 cubic-inch GM small block and a massive turbocharger. The owner/operator (Ty) states that the car is capable of producing 1,200(ish)hp. Round 1 Read More

Afternoon Delight – KC Street Digs

May 5th, 2017

Honestly, I can count on one finger the number of times that I have been involved in street digs while the sun was up. Let’s face it, most street racing takes place under cover of darkness and it’s a lot of fun that way. Having that said; this Cash Days dig racing event from Kansas City (Mexico) was refreshing because you can see a lot more detail inside the cockpit of these complex machines. Have a gander for yourself. As usual, this is single elimination, winner take all fun. You can’t jump the light or cross the center line or Read More

Roll Racing – 2JZ Mazda RX7 vs. Blown Cobra Mustang

April 28th, 2017

As much as I love, respect, and support my friends in the law enforcement community, if I am racing on the interstate and a cruiser pulls into my peripheral, I might draw up so tight that the seat cover would have to be surgically removed. My insurance guy would draw up even tighter. Not so on this night of roll racing action, when Dick Tracy pulls alongside and openly issues a challenge over the public address system. Seriously, have a look for yourself. After the customary meet-and-greet at the local filling station, our competitors pull onto the interstate (or whatever Read More

Evo X World Record Quarter-Mile

April 22nd, 2017

Hello drag racing fans and speed aficionados of every variety. Join me in congratulating Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) and English Racing as they (once again) shatter the world record 1/4-mile with a pass of 8.48-seconds @ 164.1 mph. The crew had the little sedan running in the 8.5-second range the entire event (TX2K17) and finally hit the right spot for a blow out pass in the latter stages. It seemed like Lucas English was pulling his hair out at the laptop trying to find the perfect tune. Lucas is no stranger to world records and he came through in the clutch. Read More

Road Rage – Underground Lambo vs. Hayabusa

April 18th, 2017

Wow! These street bikes move like something from another galaxy! The question is: Are they faster than a highly modified Underground Racing (UR) Lamborghini? Let’s take a look. Even in stock form, a Lamborghini Superleggera is the delight of many car enthusiasts. The mere mention of Underground Racing compounds that delight a million times. The twin turbo kit from UR uses a pair of 67-milimeter Precision turbochargers and a MoTeC controller to increase horsepower from the 600hp range to 1,500hp (1,300whp). These UR Lamborghinis are super fast and in constant contention for all kinds of top speed world records but Read More
