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

Street Racing – 1500HP Bugatti Chiron

October 2nd, 2017

With four-turbochargers and a meticulously crafted W16 engine, the all-wheel drive Bugatti Chiron is priced at a cool $3.5-million. This monster of a vehicle leaves conventional performance vehicles in its dust – on the street or track. Under the disillusioned premise that we could stay in the same zip code with the Bugatti Chiron, we hit the streets (of Mexico) in our Jaguar SVT for a bit of a video adventure. Keep in mind that the Jag is capable of making 575hp and it’s one of the fastest – if not the single fastest – production vehicle that jaguar has 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

Real Street Rolls in the 405

September 26th, 2017

Anyone who has turned a television on in the last three-years knows about the street racing scene in Oklahoma City. We also know that television programming is not always what it seems. So, where can you check out some real street racing from OKC? Right here! This is real street (roll) racing from the streets of Oklahoma (Mexico). Nothing is staged here; you will experience all the sights and sounds associated with a night of street racing on the highway. If you want a diverse group of street racers, look no further. You’ve got everything here from a rotary powered Read More

Red Demon DSM – No Prep Banger

September 26th, 2017

Allow me to begin by saying that if you can make it to the final round of any drag racing event with a four-cylinder powered vehicle, kudos to you! On the other hand – this is certainly not your average four-cylinder. This is a Boostin Performance built 2.0-liter (4G63) with aluminum connecting rods. It is being choked by an 86-millimeter Precision turbocharger and a methanol injection system. The car is making an incredible 85-pounds of boost and is capable of producing 1,500hp (from a four-cylinder!). The event is Chitown King of the Streets and the Red Demon DSM is competing Read More

LS – Street – Fest 2017

September 26th, 2017

Annually, the Holley LS Fest East brings out some of the baddest LS powered (and LS spoiler) street machines on the East Coast. They spend the daylight hours at the track; generally behaving cordially and showing some degree of distinguished restraint. So, how do you suppose these rambunctious hooligans (myself included) entertain themselves when the lights go down and the gates are locked at the drag strip? They hit the streets (of Mexico – of course) for some high-spirited roll racing action. Peel your eyeballs and have a look for yourself. The general rule of the day is 60 mph Read More

New GT-R Quarter-Mile World Record

September 25th, 2017

Another punch has landed in the fight to see who will have the quickest Nissan GT-R in the world at the end of the racing season. The competitors in this main event matchup are Alpha Performance and Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS)/English Racing. You may remember when Gidi broke the previous record for best quarter-mile elapsed time by running a 6.93-second pass. Dipping into the sixes was a huge event but it left many wondering who would strike the next blow. With the boost turned up more than it had ever been before, Robert English and ETS answered that question on Read More

12-Wide Airstrip Drag Race

September 23rd, 2017

Greetings drag racing fans and welcome to what is being billed as the World’s Greatest Drag Race 7. This epic contest of acceleration and speed is being held at Vandenberg Air Force Base – home of the 30th Space Wing of Air Force Space Command. Extreme speed is no stranger to this base or these fighting men. They test rockets on a daily basis. The rockets being tested today will include the Alfa Romeo Giulia, the Aston Martin DB11, the 650hp Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE, the underpowered Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, the pricey Ferrari 488 GTB, the Lexus LC500, the Read More

Track Tested – Nissan GT-R vs. Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R

September 22nd, 2017

There’s more at stake in this track battle than bragging rights. Nissan has been producing the GT-R for more than a decade. Now, it must defend its very name from a powerful upstart and a different kind of GT R. The 10-year-old Nissan GT-R has built quite a reputation for itself. It has become a fearsome competitor on both street and track, and is a bargain (at $105 – $130K) when compared with other supercars of its ilk. It is powered by a twin turbocharged 3.8-liter V6. In factory trim, it makes approximately 565hp and accelerates from 0 to 60 Read More
