Domestic Street Beasts – Highway Hits

August 12th, 2019

It’s time again to head out to the interstate (of Mexico) with a group of tier one street (roll) racers. These guys boast some of the baddest purpose-built roll racing machines in the nation. Saddle up! Fresh out of the gate, we have a twin turbo Gen VI Camaro against a turbo LS Mustang (so, basically two Camaros). The Mustang falters on the hit and can’t continue. A Fox Body with a turbo Coyote motor takes his place. Looks like the Ford got him but it’s difficult to say for certain. Next up is a closer look at the previously Read More

Superbowl of Street Racing

July 25th, 2019

Is this the biggest night of street racing all year? Maybe so. One thing is for sure; some of the heaviest hitters in roll racing have gathered (in Mexico) for this street racing extravaganza. The evening begins inside the BADCOBRA – a 1,200hp twin turbo Cobra Mustang. This thing is super-fast. When a ProCharged Corvette Z06 rolls alongside – it’s on like hotcakes. BADCOBRA FTW in multiple passes. Next up is BADCOBRA vs the midnight Corvette ZR1 (and some kind of speedy motorcycle). This time, the Chevy gets the jump and gaps BADCOBRA. Now a pair of rabid Nissans attack Read More

Hillbilly Deluxe – 1960 Chevy C10 1500HP

July 10th, 2019

This is a must see No Prep monster. Not your everyday, run-of-the-mill dragster; this is one stunning 1960 C10 shortbed pickup truck. The body is all steel except for the front clip and the bed sides. Equipped with a built small block Chevy V8 and a pair of air-to-water intercooled 88-millimeter Magnum turbochargers, this heavy hauler is capable of churning out 1,500hp. Shifting duties are handled with a Powerglide transmission and the engine is burning alcohol. The eighth-mile No Prep racing action begins with Hillbilly Deluxe (HD) in the left lane and a 1978 Cadillac Coupe de Ville (yes, you Read More

Twin Turbo CTS-V vs. 1000HP Supra – Street Hits

July 8th, 2019

Domestic versus Import – it just don’t get no better than that. Everything is on the line when vehicles built within the United States roll out against those built in Japan, Germany, the U.K. and all those other great nations. Tonight’s contest is just such an affair. Breaking all the rules tonight are a pair of heavily modified imports. The first is a Honda S2000 with a turbocharged 2JZ (Toyota) engine. It is capable of producing 1,200hp. Rolling out to his left is a 1,300hp Nissan GT-R, upgraded with a Boost Logic 1300 turbo system. The Honda is fast, but Read More

McLaren vs. Porsche vs. Ducati – Standing Mile

July 5th, 2019

Like a scene from a science fiction film, today’s contest features some of the most outlandish vehicles ever produced. First is the McLaren P1. The P1 is all racing – all the time. At the heart of this savage beast is a 3.8-liter twin turbocharged gas burner with a lithium-ion battery powered electric motor. Output is estimated at 903hp and 664 lb.-ft. of torque. This rear-wheel drive hypercar uses a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. Gross vehicle weight is 3,200-pounds and the price tag is about $1.1-million (U.S.). The Porsche 918 Spyder is all-wheel drive. Also a hypercar, the Spyder is powered Read More

Over the Mountains – Rocky Mountain Race Week 2019

June 19th, 2019

Day One of Rocky Mountain Race Week is over and it’s time for these racers to pack up their cars and drag their gear over the Rocky Mountains. Bound for Jefferson County, Colorado and the Bandimere Speedway (aka Thunder Mountain), these street/strip vehicles will be tested with a 200-mile trek that is almost all uphill. This is certainly the most demanding leg of this 1,000-mile road trip that many competitors claim is the most difficult part of this event. We are not on the road long when vehicles begin to drop like flies. A broken rack-and-pinion bracket, a vapor-locked fuel Read More

Street Racing Cali-Style – Roll and Dig

May 13th, 2019

Let’s head to Northern California (Mexico) – where the beaches are warm and the nights are cool – for some street racing action. On hand for two sessions of racing are all types of power-adders, numerous makes, and multiple setups. There are supercharged, turbocharged, naturally aspirated, and nitrous enhanced vehicles from the U.S. and abroad. Here we go! The morning session is focused solely on dig racing. The first contest is between a C6 Corvette (408 cubic-inch motor, ProCharger, nitrous – 930hp) and a naturally aspirated Chevy Camaro Z28. Both cars cut the light precisely and the Camaro totes the Read More

CTS-V vs. Mustang and Corvette – Street Hits

May 4th, 2019

As the summer evenings grow warmer and the risk of precipitation is reduced, the sounds of high-performance, interstate devouring, roll race cars can be heard. The late evening and early morning hours, when traffic is virtually non-existent, are prime-time for rolling these purpose-built machines onto the highway (of Mexico) for competition. Many heavily modified roll racers have showed up for this evening of fun. There is a Corvette C7 with a camshaft upgrade, a V-7 YSI Supercharger by Vortech, and a methanol injection. A 1,000hp Nissan GT-R and another (980hp) ‘Vette with an LSx engine and a YSI blower. This Read More

1100HP EVO IX vs. Yamaha R1M – Street Hits

April 5th, 2019

This video attempts to answer the scientific question, “which is faster – the car or the bike?” The experiment will be undertaken south of the border, in a controlled environment. The subjects have been expertly and dramatically modified for performance and speed. Subject A is a 2006 Mitsubishi Evolution (IX). Yes, a sedan. It has been enhanced by Machines Gone Wild using a Mivec 4G63 2.2-liter stroker motor with a GSC crankshaft. On top is a built and ported cylinder head with Kelford 288 camshafts. A dual-injector, AMS intake manifold bridges the gap between a FP (Forced Performance) Super 99 Read More
