Mercedes-Benz AMG GT-R vs. Lambo, Nissan GT-R, ZR1

August 9th, 2018

Welcome and thanks for joining us at the Palm Beach International Raceway in beautiful, sunny Florida. Today, we will see the much-heralded Mercedes-Benz AMG GT-R take-on the likes of a tuned Jeep Trackhawk, a 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, a 2017 Nissan GT-R, and a Lamborghini Huracan. Competition today is set to include drag racing and roll racing. As the track heats up so does the roll racing action with the tuned (by Gearhead) Trackhawk jumping on the AMG GT-R. Green Hell drives around him FTW! Next up, we have our own in the red Lamborghini Huracan. From the dig, Brooks Read More

9-Second 1965 Chevy Impala

August 9th, 2018

Don’t overlook our brothers and sisters of speed and horsepower in the great pacific Northwest. Spokane County (Washington) Raceway and Street Car Takeover deliver with some of the maddest vehicles in the land battling it out in drag and roll racing action. Have a gander for yourself. Right out of the gate – we have some mad cap roll racing hits. These guys are wide open with lots of imports (as one might expect) and top speeds in the 160-mph zone. Then there’s the Pontiac that loses it entering the trap and goes all headlights-taillights-headlights-taillights but never hits either wall Read More

Cash and Carry Street Racing – $5200 Prize

August 3rd, 2018

Take a look at this top shelf street racing (drags) video. This one reminds me of home, even though I know it is filmed down in Mexico. A large group of the baddest and boldest street racers in the continental U.S. has gathered for this auspicious occasion to burn up fuel, apply some rubber to the pavement, and see who can claim bragging rights as king of Cash Days. Everyone is here. So, without further ado – run your car, not your mouth – as the man says. With everyone’s money turned in and darkness falling on this narrow strip Read More

Toyota Shop Truck Spanks Exotics

August 2nd, 2018

Greetings race fans and welcome to the historic Palm Beach International Raceway. Today, we are at the sight of the Toyota Invitational, presented by TRC. Exotic, classic, and high-performance vehicles from virtually every manufacturer are on hand and this is shaking out into a very successful event. Understandably, everyone is mingling about the expensive exotics and smoozing the supercar crowd. Nobody is checking out a plain looking Toyota pickup. Some seem to think that it might be a service truck or a shop truck but this little truck is officially registered and in it to win it! In the blink Read More

Second Chance Racing – Motivational Drags

August 2nd, 2018

If this one don’t get you fired up – your wood must be wet! Tanner is an inspiration to me and I believe he will have a similar effect on other racers and non-racers as well. Approximately one-year ago Tanner was involved in an accident while riding his motorcycle. The bike collided with a car and Tanner was badly injured. He lost a portion of both legs and had a severe spinal injury (among other things) that prompted doctors to predict that he would never walk again and he most surely would never drive. The best that the medical profession Read More

1967 Corvette Stingray – Half-Mile Monster

July 31st, 2018

The SHIFT S3CTOR Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack draws some of the most fabulous cars in the country into their abandoned airstrips to put up memorable top speed numbers. Nevertheless, nobody was expecting to see a vintage Corvette knocking off the likes of McLaren, Lamborghini, and Nissan GT-R entries. Until they began to take a closer look. Push past those classic Stingray lines and open the hood. You’ll find a more modern motif. The fuel injected (Holley controller) mill is a Chevrolet LT1 small block (5.7-liter) with a pair of 62-millimeter turbochargers (18 – 20 psi of boost). The transmission is Read More

8-Flat AWD Honda Civic – No Prep

July 3rd, 2018

Greetings drag racing fans and welcome to the Sunshine State for TRC Street Kings. The star of this clip is a 1,100hp all-wheel drive Honda Civic hatch. If you’ve never seen this capable import before then get ready to start rooting for the FrustrateEG crew on their quest for a 7-second quarter-mile. When DR opted to go with a stock 2.0-liter Honda block, he wanted to make it bulletproof. So, he went with sleeved cylinders at 10:1 compression. He added a set of Drag Cartel 3.2 camshafts and a massive Precision 7685 turbocharger. A triple-disk Action clutch aids in shifting Read More

259 MPH Lamborghini – World’s Fastest Half-Mile

June 21st, 2018

Time to go underground – Underground Racing (UR), that is! When it comes to half-mile racing for top speed, nobody does it better than UR. The venue is the Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack presented by SHIFTS3CTOR and the scenery is simply amazing. The twin turbo Lamborghini Huracan is owned by Drag965 (Kuwait) and campaigned by UR. The Drag965 Lambo comes off the trailer strong with an introductory pass of 244 mph. Other competitors are lamenting the lack of traction at maximum speed and UR is no exception. As the crew tunes and tweaks the Italian masterpiece, top speeds continue to Read More

8-Second 280Z – TT V8 Monster

June 15th, 2018

I hope that I am not dating myself by saying that I can remember a time when a fellow couldn’t bounce a pair of pliers off the floor without hitting a Nissan (Datsun) 280Z. These little cars were everywhere! Not terribly fast though. They were fun to drive because the suspension was good and most were equipped with a manual transmission. Unfortunately, the wiring started going bad about the second decade and most were scrapped for a more reliable model. Not this one. This one has been reborn! Gone is the sporty and fun to drive little import and in Read More

World’s Fastest – 201 MPH – Integra

June 12th, 2018

While this clip features the World’s Fastest Acura Integra, it also showcases the best-of-the-best from TX2K18. There has been a ton of coverage for this event but there were so many amazing race cars on hand that it was unbelievable. First, the Acura; it is called Gringotegra, built and prepared by Extreme Turbo System (ETS) and English Racing. If these names sound familiar; it’s because their collaborative efforts have put them on the cutting edge in quarter-mile and half-mile racing in turbocharged cars (especially Nissan GT-Rs). In the front-wheel drive Gringotegra we find an inline four-cylinder engine. This differs greatly Read More
