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

Ultra Street Coverage Sub 5-Second 1/8-Mile

May 5th, 2015

Take a look at this video that features tons of early/late model matchups (as well as lots of GM/Ford matchups) in some close heads-up racing. There is even an early/late model GTO battle at the onset. The footage was obtained during last weekend’s Street Car Shootout at the Cecil County Dragway in Rising Sun, Maryland. The class is Ultra Street and the cars are outstanding. Ronnie Rhodes is on hand in his small block powered (with nitrous) ’68 Camaro. When the afternoon sun gets hot, he lays down a 4.95 @ 141.89 mph, and it appears that he will outclass Read More

Big Baller Mustang is Back

April 29th, 2015

After a catastrophic crash last year in Oklahoma City, the Big Baller Mustang is back and better than ever. Big Baller and the Big Baller Coupe 3.0 showed up at Redemption 3 a No Prep Event in Kennendale, Texas. The Big Baller Crew picked up a project car immediately after the 2014 tragedy and had it race ready by the spring of 2015. This 1991 Ford Mustang is well equipped with an all-aluminum 380 c.i.d. Morgan and Son’s Racing engine force fed using a Procharger F2 turbocharger. Properly tuned this combination is good for 38-pounds of boost and approximately 1600 Read More

From the Dyno to the Dragstrip: 1100-HP Mustang Cobra

April 27th, 2015

Check out this awesome looking blue flamed 2003 Mustang Cobra. The Las Vegas based Voodoo Racing Mustang dominated the street car class and put a spell on me during this month’s TX2K15 down in Houston, Texas. If the paint job resembles a lightning strike, then what is under the hood certainly provides the thunder; the 4.6-liter V8 has factory four-valve cylinder heads, it is sans the Eaton roots type blower, and a 94-millimeter turbocharger now forces air into the intake. The owner/operator of this quick pony car estimated horsepower near 1300 but today’s dyno results flagged only 1100-horsepower. Nonetheless, it Read More

Outlaw Street Car Reunion 2 Memphis Madness

April 16th, 2015

The Outlaw Street Car Reunion 2 X275 Eliminations from the Memphis International Raceway yielded this awesome clip that includes representatives of virtually every domestic auto manufacturer in head-to-head action. Instead of the Outlaw Street Car Reunion, this looks more like the Mustang Fox Body reunion. There must have been 20-high quality Fox bodies in attendance at this 1/8-mile event. Of course, there are also some fast moving Chevrolets from various eras, as well. There is even a fantastic looking Burnt Orange Mopar in the form of a late model retro-Challenger. It posts a 4.67-second pass at 155.79 mph. Most of Read More

Mustang Madness Drag Racing

April 2nd, 2015

Take a gander at these Ford Mustangs of all shapes and colors (mostly late model GTs, Shelby GTs, Bosses, and Cobras) as they attack the track down in the Sunshine State. There is a “Fox-Body” or two and even some heads-up racing. Whether you love them or hate them, you have to admit that nothing has the same exhaust note as a V8 powered Mustang. These guys are going all-out in the bleach boxes, heating up their tires and posting some pretty impressive runs. The Mustang is in its 50th year of continuous production and this video is a celebration Read More

Wheelstand Wednesday — The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly

April 1st, 2015

Wheelie-bars? We don’t need no stinkin’ wheelie-bars! Check out these Mustangs, Mopars, Malibus, and muscle-bound Camaros (there is even a Luv pickup and a Willis) as they attempt to go airborne. Some get “hooked-up” and lay down a fantastic quarter or eighth-mile pass. Some are literally up and down, from one end of the track to the other, and a few are just epic failures (one car even leaves parts strewn all over the track). Surely these guys have now invested in a good set of wheelie-bars after tearing up their rear-bumpers, roll pans, and other miscellaneous components, by slamming Read More
