1600HP CTS-V Kills the Half-Mile

August 16th, 2017

Leather upholstery (door panels), air conditioning, 1,600whp, and 200+ mph; it don’t get any better than that! This four-door Cadillac is on a mission to embarrass every GT-R, Supra, Camaro, Corvette, and Mustang that tows the line against it. It is well prepared by Hot Rod Dynamics with a lot of help from a 7.0-liter mill built by Tim Lynch of LynchMob Racing. It is a twin turbo car with a PTC transmission. This car has run as fast as 212 mph in the half-mile. The owner/operator says that he would be happy with a 300 mph pass but realistically Read More

Track Rolls & Digs – 1,400HP Turbo Mustang

July 31st, 2017

Greetings racing fans – this video brings you two kinds of fun! The feature car – a late-model Mustang – is built for street racing but moving onto the drag strip eliminates the stress of being on the lookout for John Law and possibly crashing into a minivan full of civilians. It’s a good alternative when available. Street Car Takeover in Denver offers racers a chance to get in some roll racing and dig racing. If you can believe it; this couple is out at the track on the day before their blessed nuptials. Oh well, the couple that plays Read More

750WHP Chevy SS Trolls the Streets

July 28th, 2017

Hitting the strip on Saturday night in this Chevy SS is roughly the equivalent of cruising around on the street in a NASCAR racer. Advantages of this car include air conditioning, entertainment devices, and plush seating. It just don’t get no better than that! With the ability to put 750hp to the rear wheels, this sedan sounds amazing. It’s off to the interstate (of Mexico) for some roll racing action. There’s a reason that they write songs about little red Corvettes and if you roll alongside one, you’d best be ready to put the pedal to the metal. This little Read More

Nissan GT-R vs. Audi R8 V10 Plus

July 28th, 2017

This is an all-out drag race between two of the premier sports cars in production, right now. Both cars feature powerful engines and all-wheel drivetrains but only one can emerge victorious in this matchup. So, which one will it be? Will the Japanese win the day or will the Germans make them rue the day? Let’s check it out. The 2016 Nissan GT-R Black Edition uses a smaller engine than the Audi but adds forced air induction. It is a 3.8-liter twin turbocharged mill that is mated to a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. One of the features that makes this Read More

A New Kind of Hybrid – 2JZ 240sx

July 28th, 2017

Greetings drag racing fans! Allow me to introduce a new type of hybrid propulsion system to you all. This is not your average, so-so, hum-drum gasoline over electric hybrid; it is a Nissan over Toyota, with a healthy dose of turbocharged/nitrous. The owner calls it a V8 Killer. Never mind the backyard paint job – this Nissan finds a way to consistently get down the track with very little tire slip, despite being rear-wheel drive. The inline 6-cylinder Toyota 2JZ is professionally built and is being force fed by a massive 7675 Precision turbocharger (45-pounds of boost). It has a Read More

Crazy 900HP Hellcat – Street Rolls

July 27th, 2017

This kitty has dangerously sharp claws. The Dodge Hellcat Charger is the most potent sedan ever produced (in stock trim). Our feature car is not only wrapped in a wild paint scheme, it has undergone some major enhancements under the hood. The Tar Heel State (of Mexico) is home to some seriously competitive street racing. This time, we are taking to the highway for elite roll racing action and there are some heavy hitters in attendance. Of course, the star of this video is the 900hp Hellcat but there are also a set of impressive Nissan GT-Rs, some quality Corvettes, Read More

650HP BMW M5 – Street Rolls

July 12th, 2017

I just love a luxury car that can pull its weight in a street race. At the risk of revealing my advanced age, I’ll tell you that the luxury street racer bug first bit me when I built a huge 1978 Cadillac Coupe de Ville and implanted a nitrous injected big block Chevy running gear. It was fun but also heavy. This 2014 BMW M5 is fun but it certainly ain’t that heavy. The Bavarian Motor Works are globally recognized as leaders in the niche of elegant sports cars. The “M” in M5 refers to the BMW Motorsports division which Read More

King of the Streets – Grinch Mustang

June 28th, 2017

The Grinch certainly wasn’t the shiniest car at King of the Streets (KOTS) Chicago – it wasn’t even the prettiest car in the Gangster Class. Fortunately for the Grinch crew, it ain’t how you look but what you have under the hood. What the Grinch has under the hood is a borrowed (big thanks to Corn Dog!) big block and a few kits of nitrous. Power is estimated to be in the 1,200hp range. After winning the Gangster Class at KOTS in 2016, and struggling all week to supplant their hurt motor with the borrowed big block mill, it would Read More

Track Test – 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo

June 25th, 2017

A proper weapon of a car, lighter, more powerful, more exclusive, and faster are just a few of the adjectives being assigned to the new 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo. The racing competition describes the GT-R in different terms. “Godzilla” comes to mind. That’s a pretty accurate representation since the GT-R (like Godzilla) is from Japan and is very scary. Oh – by the way – it also has been known to terrorize big cities and small villages alike. The Nissan GT-R is an all-wheel drive supercar that can be had for around $110K – $175K. Make no mistake, it is Read More

Corn Field Cash Days

June 21st, 2017

Being born and raised in an inner city environment and having the good sense to move out to the country, I know a little about both urban and rural life. One of those things that I know is that city dwellers and country folk both love a good street race. That’s why some big time street machines showed up for this corn-fed dig racing showdown between the furrows. The very whisper of Cash Days usually brings the competitors out in droves but the weather in Nebraska (Mexico) can be a little unforgiving. Traction is already at a premium on the Read More
