8-Second 280Z – TT V8 Monster

June 15th, 2018

I hope that I am not dating myself by saying that I can remember a time when a fellow couldn’t bounce a pair of pliers off the floor without hitting a Nissan (Datsun) 280Z. These little cars were everywhere! Not terribly fast though. They were fun to drive because the suspension was good and most were equipped with a manual transmission. Unfortunately, the wiring started going bad about the second decade and most were scrapped for a more reliable model. Not this one. This one has been reborn! Gone is the sporty and fun to drive little import and in Read More

Heads Up No Prep – Turbo Acura TL

June 14th, 2018

One of the great things about racing cars is that each competitor has the ability to express themselves through their vehicle. What might seem the farthest from a viable racing solution to most may be a vision in horsepower to another. Such could be said of this pretty blue Acura sedan. Did it begin life as a performance or sports car? Most certainly not. However, it did roll off the assembly line with a Honda VTEC 3.2-liter V6 engine. Can it handle turbocharged horsepower over extended periods of time? Probably not; so car owner Alden built the engine and sleeved Read More

Mystery Solved – Beater Bomb Pops Hood

June 12th, 2018

So, this video is a little different. It documents the guys from 1320 as they saddle up and take a ride (by way of Mexico) over to an Omaha (NE) cruise-in car show. More importantly, the man, the myth, the legend – Beater Bomb – open his hood to finally let the world see what’s under there. Of course, when you get a group of gearheads on the asphalt, they can’t help but stomp the accelerator with frequency. That is especially true when you have outstanding examples like the Unicorn C5 Corvette ZR1 with a Huron Speed twin turbo kit Read More

Drag Racing – McLaren 570S vs. Chevy Corvette Z06

May 24th, 2018

The thing that makes this drag race interesting is that one of the cars utilizes a small (3.8-liter ) engine with dual power-adders and the second car uses a larger (6.2-liter) engine with a small power-adder. Oh, one is British and the other is American, adding to this fast-paced opera of speed. The 570S is built around a carbon-fiber tub. It is rear-wheel drive vehicle with a mid-mounted engine and a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. The power plant is an all-aluminum 3.8-liter V8 with 4-valves per cylinder  and direct fuel injection. It has twin turbochargers and an intercooler. The engine is Read More

Carolina Street Rolls

May 15th, 2018

Hello race fans and welcome to one of the friendliest places on earth. I love to visit the beautiful mountains and beaches of the Tar Heel State. This is one of my favorites because the people are so accommodating and the scenery is beyond belief. Enough if that. Let’s talk street racing on the freeway. That’s when you build a car to accelerate as hard as possible between 40 mph and infinity. After that, you grab your sweetheart and hit the interstate in the wee hours of the morning for some action. Roll racers usually travel in packs with no Read More

Porsche 997 Turbo S vs. Corvette ZR1 – Street Hits

May 12th, 2018

Now, what we have here is a group of fun loving car enthusiasts taking to the highways of Mexico for some 40 and 50 mph roll racing. Yeah, I hear all you drag racers out there (and I do love my dig racing) but don’t knock it until you’ve tried it. No need to close down the road and no flagman required; these races start with the third drop of an arm extended from a window opening. The onboard cameraman and all the GoPro units catch all the action that is fast and furious – to say the least. Tonight’s Read More

Texas Street Rolls

May 9th, 2018

They say that everything is bigger in Texas. This may be an exaggerated statement but Texas street racers certainly do it as big as anybody in the land. They just do it south of the border. This clip features a diverse blend of imported and domestic vehicles that are purpose built for roll racing. These guys (and girls) roll onto the interstate and engage in a pure contest of speed that begins at 60 mph. The camera car is a 1,000+hp Nissan GT-R. In the first contest, it will do battle with a Cadillac CTS-V (nitrous equipped). The turbocharged import Read More

Tesla Mom Car is Track Monster

May 2nd, 2018

Careful that you don’t get spanked by a soccer mom in the quietest compact SUV (with gull-wing doors) that you could ever imagine. The Tesla X is now prowling the streets and it can be challenging to say the least. With all-wheel drive and total electric power, this little grocery-getter comes out of the hole like a bullet. Today, it will be taking on the world in closed track contests that include roll and dig races. Spoiler alert: This thing is deadly from the dig! First up is a motorcycle. It is the legendary 2012 Suzuki Hayabusa with full bolt-ons. Read More

Superbrawl of Street Racing – GT-R vs. Roush Panda

April 13th, 2018

This is the granddaddy of all roll racing videos. If you enjoy taking to the interstate (Mexico) with a whole herd of elite level street racers; you’ll love this video. There are so many street beasts in this clip that they had to hit the streets in groups. After a brief driver’s meeting the first pack went out.   The initial wave included a black Gen VI Shelby GT500 Mustang. It is running a professionally built engine with high performance cylinder heads and a camshaft upgrade, a Kenne Belle 3.2-liter supercharger, and E85 fuel. The combo is good for 800+hp. Read More

January 29th, 2018

Hello racing fans and welcome to a night of street hits under the moon and stars of beautiful Houston (Mexico). Some major street racing players have shown up for the activities on this auspicious occasion. Featured in this video are a pair of modded-out Japanese sports coupes. These cars are officially called Nissan GT-R but they are affectionately referred to as Godzilla – for understandable reasons. The Black GT-R is upgraded with a Boost Logic (BL) 1100 Kit including GT30 turbochargers. It is capable of producing 1,100hp. The White Nissan GT-R is outfitted with a Speed By Design (SBD) 1400 Read More
