Turbo Acura V8 Killer

December 11th, 2017

You can imagine our surprise. After all, it isn’t everyday that we pull up to an event like Street Car Takeover Phoenix (Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park) and find a front-wheel drive Acura Integra going on about quenching some V8 dreams. Even more to our amazement was the tiny four-cylinder engine underneath the hood. Before the day was done in Wild Horse Pass, we would discover that the fella’ with the biggest gun doesn’t always have the fastest bullet. The car was setup to campaign in the Front-Wheel Drive Class but a lack of FWD competitors resulted in a move Read More

10-Second Stock Camaro ZL1

December 8th, 2017

This clip documents a 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 making a quarter-mile pass of 10.943-seconds @ 128.275 mph. The venue is Mountain Park Dragway in Clay City, Kentucky and the temperature is approximately thirty-two-degrees. The car is bone stock and rolling on stock tires. Keep in mind that this Camaro is often referred to as the king of the performance coupes. It is the top of the current Camaro line and is the most capable Camaro ever produced. From the factory it is capable of producing 650hp @ 6,400 RPM and 650 lb.-ft. of torque @ 3,400 RPM. Top speed is Read More

Twin Turbo HEMI 300 Street Hits

December 4th, 2017

Welcome aboard Mopar Airways Flight 160 (mph that is). Place your luggage in the overhead storage bins and buckle your safety belts. You are about to be treated to some low altitude passes in a Chrysler 300C luxury liner. The Texas (Mexico) streets are hot tonight and this Chrysler sedan is a big reason why. It is trolling for some roll racing action and finding it in droves. This Chrysler 300C has been treated to an engine upgrade. The new mill is a 404 cubic-inch stroker HEMI. It has a pair of bottom-mounted Precision 6766 turbochargers that are being water Read More

TT 1964 Dodge Polara Rat Rod

November 29th, 2017

This video takes us (step-by-step) through the drastic rebuild of a rusted out 1964 Dodge Polara. Proving that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, the crew at Roadster Shop (Mundelein, IL) transformed this eyesore into a radical racing machine. Check it out. This car belongs to Jesse James – custom motorcycle magnate from Huntington Beach, CA – and not the legendary outlaw or the tight end for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Jesse is widely known for building custom bikes, cars, knives, and almost anything else that can be crafted with a little skill and a lot of elbow grease. Whether Read More

Corvette Crazy – Insane Street Hits

November 14th, 2017

Greetings racing fans and welcome to a well organized night of roll racing action on the streets (of Mexico – obviously). This group of competitors is serious about roll racing and it shows in their machinery. The action kicks-off with a little red Corvette (baby you’re much too fast … but I digress …) Z06 that’s packing 434 cubic-inches of LS motor with a 250 shot of nitrous. It is rubbing door handles with a Blue C6 ‘Vette. The blue Chevy  has a 7.0- liter LSX engine with an F1A Procharger. These two cars make multiple passes with the blue Read More

Vintage Vette Victimizes Competitors

November 8th, 2017

Rarely do I see a C1 Chevrolet Corvette at the drag strip. The folks who own these classic beauties most often reserve them for car shows and cruising. It is even less common to see a vintage ‘Vette dominating multiple classes (Small Tire and Big Tire) of an event like Street Car Takeover Tucson. Another characteristic that makes this open air Corvette special is the absolute simplicity of the powertrain. In a day of massive power-adders, chemical injections, and specialized racing fuels, this classic ride is propelled by a small block, Chevy LS (V8) engine with a 100hp shot of Read More

Street Pulls – 800WHP EVO

November 3rd, 2017

What could be sweeter than an 800whp DSM? How about a warm night of roll racing on the highways of Mexico? The feature car is a 2005 Mitsubishi Evolution (8) that has been radically modified to enhance performance. It is powered by an EVO 9 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that has been built by AG Autosport (with steel connecting rods). The bottom end is rated at 1,000hp. It also uses a Precision 62-millimeter turbocharger. A pair of Walbro 450 pumps keep the E85 fuel flowing. A Haltech ECU (tuned by CriSpeed) keeps all the ponies running in the same direction. The Read More

1700HP Monster Corvette

October 31st, 2017

The crew at LSxperts is once again demonstrating their versatility with this beautiful, blue Corvette. This is the exact same car that set the half-mile top-speed world record (229 mph) during the Slipstream Racing event. With the final drive gear ratio adjusted appropriately, the ‘Vette is now ready to tackle the competition (in the eighth-mile) during Street Car Takeover (SCT) Atlanta. Competing in the Outlaw Class, this Chevy would face very stiff competition as some of the fastest drag cars in the nation were on hand at the Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, Georgia. This C5 Corvette is running a Brian Read More

Tesla Invests in Muscle Cars

October 19th, 2017

In a recent interview (parody) with Elon Musk of Tesla, a reporter asked if the automaker was indeed buying up muscle cars and hot rods around the suburban Atlanta (Georgia) area. Musk smiled wryly and explained to the journalist that he was mistaken. While it has been widely reported that Tesla has come to own many muscle cars in and around the 303; these reports are largely limited to a single P100D and an event called Street Car Takeover Atlanta. It would seem that an all-electric and gutted (it still weighs in at nearly two-and-a-half tons) Tesla P100D had thoroughly Read More

Muscle Car Madness

October 18th, 2017

You may call it cars gone wild, muscle car madness, or insanity on wheels but it won’t change the fact that this video makes fantasy come to life. Many of us remember the crazy toy cars of our Mattel Hot Wheels collections. With their giant chrome engines, protruding through the hood and towering above the roof line, these tiny die cast creations inspired some of us to build our first hot rods. The cars (and trucks) in this video closely resemble the shiny (and radically modified) toys that we played with as children – only they are very real. Each Read More
