Villain – 1000HP Street Dominator Chevelle SS

March 20th, 2019

When money is no object, and you simply must have the baddest car on the street, a frame-off resto-mod will usually fill the ticket. This 1970 Chevelle certainly will. Not a bad car when it came to Detroit Speed, the owner was just yearning for a bit more from this old girl. She already had a potent 502 cubic-inch Chevy Performance big block. The car looked acceptable enough but – WOW! – when an expert begins to inspect and configure; things can get real expensive, real quick. After a frame upgrade, a roll cage, new floor panels, and new wheel Read More

3000HP Camaro Dominates Small Tire No Prep

March 10th, 2019

Greetings drag racing fans. Join me as this clip takes us back to the Thunder Valley Raceway Park in Noble, Oklahoma for Outlaw Armageddon. This event is being billed as the World Series of No Prep but can it live up to the hype? Take a look. Fresh off three consecutive wins, Tony V and his Gen IV Camaro are looking to grab the $25,000 grand prize in the Small Tire Class. Despite finishing up a new setup only about a month prior to this season, Tony and crew think they can make it four in a row. Safe to Read More

200 MPH Vengeance Corvette

March 7th, 2019

Fast Chevrolet Corvette coupes and Vengeance Racing (Cumming, Georgia) seem to go together like peanut butter and strawberry preserves. Every time we see these guys, they have a trailer loaded with a half-dozen (or so) of the most capable LS powered sports cars imaginable. Today is special for Ron and the crew from Vengeance. They are all set to surprise friend and long-time customer Chuck beyond his wildest dreams. With about 2-years on his Novi 2200 and 7.0-liter LSX setup, Chuck brought his Corvette in needing a refresh on the engine with some more potent upgrades to follow (when the Read More

Kansas City Cash Days Times Two

February 28th, 2019

Kansas City is about more than just barbeque. These guys (and gals) are into some serious dig racing on the rural streets. We managed to locate two separate street racing venues (after we got to Mexico) and hook up with some local racers willing to put it all on the line for a cash pot. First up is the Small Tire Cash Days with Mini Big Tire Cash Days to follow. Soak it up. Small Tire Round One and the first race is between a turbocharged big block Chevy powered Fox Body in need of a spring cleaning and a Read More

Turbo Four-Bangers Ravage the Streets

February 12th, 2019

Greetings street racing fans. Tonight, we are hitting the streets (of Mexico) with a pair of turbocharged Hondas for a bit of nighttime fun. These guys are out there – racing anyone who will tow the line – and winning more than their fair share. We are in for some roll racing and some dig racing in this one. Let’s take a look! Right outta the gate, these two Honda Civic competitors must have a go. The car with the smaller four-banger (B16 vs. K24) seems superior, after multiple hits. The B16 Civic tangles with a stock GTO in the Read More

266 MPH BIG RED Camaro – Inside the Build

February 10th, 2019

As a muscle car that began as a production model Camaro Z28, this Chevy has evolved a long way into the complete racing machine you see today. BIG RED was initially modified as a Pro Touring car. After shocking the field at the legendary La Carrera Classic, in Mexico, this classic cruiser was kicked to the curb for being too much for the other Pro Touring cars (Lamborghini, Ferrari, Porsche, etc.) to handle. After all, it was “only” a 1969 Camaro. Since then, BIG RED has gone on a tear. It is currently setup for top speed airstrip (mile and Read More

Terminator Swapped Fox Body – Street and Strip

February 7th, 2019

The most memorable words in film are uttered by the most memorable characters. When Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator character said, “I’ll be back”, the phrase was etched in the memories of people all over the world. Featured in this video is a slick Fox Body Mustang that is dedicated to bringing the Terminator (engine) back, single handedly. First introduced under the hood of the 2003 and 2004 Mustang SVT Cobra, the Terminator was an iron block supercharged (Eaton 112 Roots) 4.6-liter V8. Forged Manley pistons and twin H-beam connecting rods (with special wrist pin lubrication ports) were added to the bottom Read More

780HP Chevrolet Camaro eCOPO – Quarter-Mile Pass

February 6th, 2019

50-years after the introduction of the original 1969 COPO Camaro, GM takes to the track again with a powerful, all-electric eCOPO Camaro Concept. With an all-new 800-volt battery pack and two BorgWarner HVH motors, the eCOPO launched with an impressive wheelstand before blasting through the 60-foot mark (in only 1.30-seconds) and completing the quarter-mile in 10.42-seconds at 130.85 mph. Keep in mind that output capacity is only turned up to approximately 80-percent. A nine-second quarter-mile is expected before full production begins. Like the conventional 2019 COPO Camaro, the eCOPO is a full-race car designed for customization. Since the eCOPO is Read More

East Texas Daylight Street Digs

February 6th, 2019

This video brings us the equivalent of a mini Race Week. It takes place in the Dallas/Ft. Worth (Mexico) area and competitors must drive their race cars from one race location to the next. After racing the first round, if you pull back on the trailer, you are finished. Other rules apply. It’ll cost you $200 to race and it’s small tire (29.5-inch max.) only, single elimination contest. Don’t jump before the light comes on. Don’t cross the center line; be the first to cross the finish, and you move on to the next round. Keep doing that until the Read More

Classic Nova Sleeper Packs Huge Punch

January 19th, 2019

This is just the kind of car that makes auto mechanics – with big forearms and grease under their nails – giggle like teenage girls. It’s the kind of car that street racers (young and old) desire to build. They talk about building and think about building, but almost never get around to building. Well, feast your eyes upon this: While I was busy thinking about building the ultimate street sleeper; Drew was busy buying it. He found a very ordinary looking 1972 Chevrolet Nova which Kurt Urban Performance has transformed it into something otherworldly and wisely snapped it up. Read More
