Red GT-R is a Street Thumper

October 19th, 2016

I guarantee it! You are going to love this pretty red Nissan GT-R. Not because of its awesome paint job – and it certainly has one – but because it goes up against some heavy hitters and dominates. Maybe it was a cool night. Every racer knows what it’s like to have a night when your car seems to run better than it ever has; better than you could imagine. Possibly it was one of those nights for the red GT-R. It’s inexplicable – in one way it is great and in another ways it sucks. Your car is running Read More

Buncha’ B.S. at King of the Streets Chi-Town

October 4th, 2016

There was a real bunch of BS at one of the nation’s biggest No Prep events recently – Boosted Solutions, Inc that is. The crew at BS campaigned three cars in the Senior Class of this mid western main event; virtually guaranteeing that one of them would make it through to the finals. These guys are serious about forced air induction and even more serious about No Prep. The feature car for this video is a Mustang SVO with a big block Chevrolet engine and twin 94-millimeter turbochargers. This thing really gets down the track in a hurry. Check out Read More

Twin Turbo 7-Liter Camaro Wins 2016 Hot Rod Drag Week

September 28th, 2016

Check out this clip of Clark Rosenstengel and his GenV Camaro. He lays down a 7.80 1/4-mile pass at 170 mph in a car that still has factory air conditioning. If that isn’t enough to prove this is a true street machine, it is also riding on radial tires (Mickey Thompsons). One might conclude that, with a Steve Morris built 427 cubic-inch LSX (that means Chevrolet) engine and a pair of sparkling stainless-steel Bullseye 80-millimeter turbochargers, this grueling week long event (Hot Rod Drag Week) would be a cake walk. Not so much; you see, Clark and the gang had Read More

September 22nd, 2016

You’re a bad one, Mr. Grinch! This time the Grinch isn’t trying to steal Christmas but the Gangster Class crown at the fall 2016 King of the Streets event in Chicago, Illinois. He’s got plans to crush the competition and take home a big stack of cash, but first he’ll have to take on some turbocharged monsters and a few nitrous injected beasts. The Grinch is equipped with a big block Chevrolet engine and a generous shot of laughing gas. The driver (FJ) is ultra aggressive and puts it all on the line for every pass. The Car gets out Read More

GAS 1000HP Mustang

September 15th, 2016

Whoa! Better than a Bugatti? There are very few cars that make that claim but that’s the scoop on this Galpin Auto Sports (GAS) modified Ford Mustang GT500. At a sticker price that is less than a quarter of the Veyron, this pony car might just be worth a second look. The process begins with a capable enough car in the GT500, it then gets a custom set of wheels and tires that are fitted to a one-of-a-kind aerodynamic wide body kit that is fabricated using all steel construction. The sheet metal work alone may take up four-months to complete. Read More

Import Street Shootout – Roll and Dig

September 14th, 2016

The increasing availability of turbochargers to the sport of street racing has forever changed the face of what is arguably the most popular motorized sport in America. Despite competitors being forced to take their high performance dramas south of the border (for legal reasons), street racers continue to blow their top when it comes to modifying their machines for maximum performance and optimum horsepower. This clip runs the gambit from high-dollar exotic sports cars to good old domestic muscle. It opens up with a majestic Porsche 911 Turbo S, with an upgraded turbocharger, a high performance intake manifold, high performance Read More

September 14th, 2016

It’s time for one of the biggest amateur drag racing events in the USA and the Australian teams are here is force. Hot Rod Drag Week is going strong in the Midwest and the 2016 field consists of nearly 350 entrants, including a barrage of hard-charging Australian lads and lassies, looking to test their skills and have a lot of fun. Drag Week events mean racing on four tracks in five days accompanied by a road trip of about a thousand miles. The catch is that the drag cars must be driven between racetrack destinations. That’s a lot of wear Read More

Texas vs Oklahoma – Street Racing Event

September 5th, 2016

The animosity between Longhorns and Sooners has been brewing for longer than automobiles have been in production. This street racing event brings all this ill will to a head on the hot asphalt of a deserted industrial park (and throws in lovely razorback to boot). Welcome drag racing fans to Cash Days 2016. You know that you are in for a treat when you see the likes of the Murder Nova, the Mistress Chevy II, the Kamikaze El Camino, the Big Baller Coupe Mustang, the Chevy II known as Cornbread, and the Dominator Dodge Dart on hand for head-to-head, single elimination, Read More

Kayla Morton’s Procharged Mustang

September 2nd, 2016

You might say that the hottest ticket in drag racing today is No Prep. Well, it gets even hotter when you add a pretty blonde pilot who looks like she just stepped off the stage of the local beauty pageant. Having said that, make no mistake, Kayla Morton is more than just a pretty face. She interviews like a crew chief and (as you’ll see in the video) when things go awry (and they will – check Murphy’s Law), she is more than capable of taking charge of her race car and avoiding catastrophe. This is one chick who knows Read More
