Corvettes Battle on the Streets of Old Mexico

May 20th, 2016

It is a rarefied occasion when I happen across a video in which the camera car is the bully on the block. Well, this is one such video. If I had to choose a catch-phrase for this clip, it would undoubtedly be “see ya” in reference to the commentary that takes place inside the camera car. The camera ‘Vette is red. It is a C5 Z06 with a camshaft upgrade and a Vortec supercharger. Power is estimated at 664hp. The blue C7 Z06 has unknown modifications and claims 750hp. To keep things interesting, there is also a Gen V Coyote Read More

Missouri Street Digs

May 10th, 2016

Here is some premier street racing action from the show-me state. This is one insane night during Mini Cash Days that brought out some big names – like Skinnies Twin-Turbo Fox Mustang and the FR8TRAIN Trans Am. From the famous to the dark-horse no-names; these racers are giving it their all in some very competitive street racing action. There is one standout. It’s a bad Firebird with a big block Chevy (502 cid) engine and an 84-millimeter turbocharger. Of course, the FR8TRAIN is doing his thing and so is Skinny. Both of them won close races.

Turbo S10 Pickup Spanks Muscle Cars

May 6th, 2016

The odds of a square-body Chevy S10 Cyclone pickup truck taking on an array of muscle cars in the standing half-mile – and winning – are pretty slim. Then again, most S10 trucks aren’t as well equipped for the task as this one. This is a family project crafted with pride by a father and his two-sons. The best weekend run for this truck was an impressive 159.4 mph. This sub-compact pickup is packing a 408-cubic-inch LS engine with a Callie’s crankshaft and stroker kit, stock cylinder heads, a camshaft upgrade, a Turbonetics 101-millimeter compressor/91-millimeter turbine, a massive 4L80E automatic Read More

Turbo Z28 Street and Strip Racing

May 4th, 2016

While most drag racers prefer a low-slung ride, this fourth-generation Camaro Z28 owner seems to have actually increased the height of his street sleeper with larger tires and wheels. At any rate, the 6-speed manual transmission must make this thing challenging in competitive situations. The degree of body twist exhibited during the hole-shot (dig racing) indicates that the factory suspension may be overloaded with horsepower. Lets face it – that’s the best kind of problem to have. This attractive pony car is well equipped with a late model (2006 Silverado) 5.3-liter engine with a camshaft upgrade, stronger connecting rod bolts, Read More

This S10 (called Cornfed 2.0 and equipped with a twin-turbocharged LSX engine) runs in one of the two classifications of most No Prep events – Small Tire.

April 5th, 2016

This great looking Mustang Cobra nearly does airborne from the right lane during TX2K16 in Houston, Texas. The Medusa Cobra is campaigned by Voodoo Racing Innovations out of Las Vegas, Nevada. Voodoo specializes in turbocharged Ford projects but they are capable of wrenching anything. Despite several near catastrophic passes, Medusa manages to put down an 8.6-second pass at 162.8 mph.
