Colorado Cash Days – Insane Street Racing

August 12th, 2015

Fourteen of the baddest street machines in the West have gathered at an undisclosed location in the Colorado night. Each of these teams has plans to take someone else’s cash, eat their cookies, and claim bragging rights as king of the Colorado streets. All-wheel drive, front-wheel drive, and rear-wheel drive – old cars, new cars, and even trucks will do battle to see who can claim the number-one spot in the 2015 edition of Colorado Cash Days. The highlights of this feature video include a 800hp 1969 Camaro, a beautiful red Chevy Nova with a 400-cubic-inch engine and an 80mm Read More

Classic Street Race Mustang GT500 vs. Corvette Z06

August 5th, 2015

It seems to me that we really don’t see nearly enough quick street (or track) Mustangs. The pavement is writhing with bodacious Corvettes of every era and every modified configuration, but when it comes to Ford counterparts, they are few and far between. So, when you finally get to see a classic battle of the little blue oval versus the big bad BOWTIE, it is quite a treat. This is just such a battle. Check out these two radically modified street cars as they lock horns down “south of the border.” This is roll racing and both of these rides Read More

8-Second 1/4-Mile by an 18-Year Old Girl

July 29th, 2015

In my gym there is a small sign that reads, “Remember that somewhere in China a school girl just did multiple sets of 15 – with your max.” That reminds me of Alex Taylor. As the youngest competitor at Rocky Mountain Race Week, this 18-year old is competing on a level that is much more advanced than her years. In one clip she responds to a question regarding the effects of the Colorado elevation level with, “Ooooh, el-e-vation” and in another she is spewing analytical tuner data like an experienced crew chief. This racer is already good, but one day Read More

Old School Blown Chevelle vs. New School Trans Am WS6

July 28th, 2015

Now this is what street racing is supposed to sound like! Check out this video as it depicts two high-performance rear-wheel drive GM products locked in a head to head battle on a lonely stretch of two lane blacktop. While these two cars share many similarities, at their core they are vastly different. The Pontiac gets the hole shot, and the victory, gradually pulling away from the effervescence of the heavier Chevrolet’s headlamps. The ’70 Chevelle is equipped with a supercharged vintage 7.0-liter big block V8 and the Trans Am utilizes a late model 6.2-liter turbocharged V8. Despite the two Read More

2,000HP Furious 7 Maximus Charger Exposed

July 16th, 2015

If you are a fan of the Fast and Furious Saga, then you don’t want to miss this video. It gives us an inside look at the Maximus 2000 Charger (featured in the final scene of Furious 7) as described by Tom Nelson, of Nelson Racing Engines (NRE). It is a handcrafted replica of a 1968 Dodge Charger – with a few new twists. For one, the body is 6-inches wider than a stock ’68 Charger so the 18-inch wide tires on the rear look like average street tires. The first thing you will notice is the paint job (or Read More

1,200-Mile Road Trip in a 6-Second Street Beast

July 15th, 2015

In what must be the equivalent of the ultimate Iron-Man competition for an elite class street racer, three drivers recently set out to conquer Rocky Mountain Race Week. This 1,200-mile test of speed and endurance rolls through the Rockies and in to Pueblo, Colorado, then they trek to Great Bend, Kansas, before heading to Kearney, Nebraska, after that they make a u-turn and the journey culminates back in Denver, Colorado. For each step of the journey, there is a full day of heads up dig racing. For at least three individual drivers, this entire trip is taken in a bad-axe, Read More

Street Racing: Import VS. Domestic

July 3rd, 2015

There is something extra-thrilling about racing at night. As the sun fades and the moon makes its appearance, ambient temperatures ease down and racing conditions enter the realm of perfection. This video documents just such a street race, as a potent all-wheel drive import supercar clashes with a hard charging all-American rear-wheel drive muscle car. Let’s begin with the C5 Corvette. It is equipped with a specially built 418-cubic-inch V8 racing engine. In front of that sits a single Precision 8891 turbocharger, behind it a 6-speed manual transmission with a Monster Lt1-R clutch. Output is estimated loosely at 1,100+HP. The Read More

Street Racing: Supercharged Mustang vs. SRT Viper T/A

June 30th, 2015

For as long as there have been muscle cars, Ford and Dodge have been battling on the street. Smaller, lighter, small block powered Mustangs going head to head against larger, more powerful Dodges with massive big block HEMI engines, are what made street racing what it is today. This video shows a 2015 Ford Mustang GT with a blown 5.0-liter V8. The supercharger is a 2.3-liter VMP Gen2. Fuel is delivered via a Lund Racing Tuner using Injector Dynamics ID1000 fuel injectors, a stock fuel pump, and a booster. American Racing Headers and exhaust removes spent gases and a McLeod racing Read More

1,000HP Air Force Won Mustang Wins Three Consecutive No Prep Events

May 25th, 2015

If you want to see some good head-to-head racing action, without all of the lights and timers, then you want to see some “No Prep” drag racing. This is just two cars, two drivers, two pit crews, and a quarter-mile of straight, flat blacktop. It seems that owner/driver Shayne Ward and the Air Force Won team have found the groove in the “small tire” class, winning three major 2015 events in a row (Kansas Dragway, Northstar Dragway, and Texas Dragway). A Morgan & Sons small-block (388 c.i.d.) Ford racing engine, Powerglide transmission, and Ford 8.8-inch rear differential all combine to Read More
