Whoa! 7-Second V6 Firebird?

February 5th, 2016

Did you say that this clip shows a 7-second V6 powered Pontiac Firebird? How can that be? Well, you start with a 3.8-liter Buick engine (from an 80s GTA) and then you add a pair of 62-millimeter ATP turbos. This eye-catching Pearl White ‘Bird has a unique sound that captured the imaginations of everyone at the Street Car Takeover in Phoenix. The first pass is of the roll racing variety. The Firebird bumps up against a bodacious TT ’68 Camaro that walks away easily. Next he spanks a late-model Camaro with only bolt-on modifications in the eighth-mile. There’s lots of Read More

Inside the rally stripes are the most eye-catching ghost flames that you have ever seen. This is truly one of the most beautiful cars you’ll ever see on a drag strip – but it ain’t how you look it’s what ya’ got under the hood! This beast is equipped with a 565-inch aluminum big block with a pair of Garrett 88-millimeter turbochargers. The combo is obviously good for some serious horsepower Read More

A Rossler transmission and four-link rear suspension help transfer power to the rear wheels. An inventive dual-fuel tank setup allows the car to cruise to the track in style. Running in the unlimited class, this mighty muscle car lays down a 4.8 in the eighth-mile at Street Car Read More

Turbo Audi Blow Torch Street Racing

January 28th, 2016

This flame throwing turbocharged Audi S2 is taking Swedish street racing by storm. It’s rolling a 2.2-liter engine, a Precision 6466 turbocharger, and a 5-speed transmission. This setup is good for 791hp. Despite the screeching turbocharger and the intimidating blue flame belching from the cropped exhaust, the little German hatchback comes up short. It bucks up against a bodacious Dodge Duster that really lives up to its name – leaving the Audi in its dust. The Audi seems to encounter some type of malfunction out of the hole and the Dodge shows no mercy as it walks away easily; maybe next Read More

Wild, Wild West Street Racing

January 21st, 2016

This clip details a cowboy’s night out on the streets of Phoenix, Arizona. Instead of horses and six-guns, these cowboys are packing forced air induction and nitrous oxide. It’s night-time dig racing on the highways and byways of one of the west’s largest cities. This action is insane – don’t miss it. There’s a hood scoop with a nitrous V8 Chevy Monza attached to it. This thing is more show than go and gets dusted by one Fox Body nitrous Mustang before beating another. At any rate, it’s refreshing to see a Monza again; you hardly ever see them anymore. There’s Read More

Street Racing – 1300HP GT-R vs. 1100HP TT Mustang Cobra

January 15th, 2016

If you have ever experienced the spectacle that is street racing then you are aware of the posturing, promotion, misrepresentation, and just plain crap talking that occurs in the minutes and hours before the rubber hits the road. This unique video documents it all. The competitors turn out for some first class trash talking before locking horns on the interstate. Speaking of competitors; the first guy drives a Boost Logic equipped Nissan GT-R and the second (the guy talking all the smack) pilots a twin turbocharged (76-millimeter) Mustang Cobra with a built 7.0-liter small block Chevrolet engine. Check out the Read More

Street Racing Madness – Mini Cash Days 2015

January 12th, 2016

This video documents a hot night of street racing that attracts a bevy (eleven to be precise) of racing beauties. There are imports and domestics; sedans, coupes, a station wagon, and even a pickup truck – but there can be only one winner. Everybody seems to be gunning for Skinny in the twin-turbocharged Fox Body Mustang. He’s making around 1,200hp and he is the odds on favorite. Among the gunslingers looking to lay down the gauntlet there is another Fox Body with a 408-cubic-inch Windsor engine and a 1,000hp white Camaro. There are so many elite competitors present that I Read More
