Wild, Wild West Street Racing

January 21st, 2016

This clip details a cowboy’s night out on the streets of Phoenix, Arizona. Instead of horses and six-guns, these cowboys are packing forced air induction and nitrous oxide. It’s night-time dig racing on the highways and byways of one of the west’s largest cities. This action is insane – don’t miss it. There’s a hood scoop with a nitrous V8 Chevy Monza attached to it. This thing is more show than go and gets dusted by one Fox Body nitrous Mustang before beating another. At any rate, it’s refreshing to see a Monza again; you hardly ever see them anymore. There’s Read More

Street Racing – 1300HP GT-R vs. 1100HP TT Mustang Cobra

January 15th, 2016

If you have ever experienced the spectacle that is street racing then you are aware of the posturing, promotion, misrepresentation, and just plain crap talking that occurs in the minutes and hours before the rubber hits the road. This unique video documents it all. The competitors turn out for some first class trash talking before locking horns on the interstate. Speaking of competitors; the first guy drives a Boost Logic equipped Nissan GT-R and the second (the guy talking all the smack) pilots a twin turbocharged (76-millimeter) Mustang Cobra with a built 7.0-liter small block Chevrolet engine. Check out the Read More

1100HP Supra vs. 1000HP Mustang GT500

January 14th, 2016

This clip features a banging turbo Supra that is capable of hanging with some bodacious street cars and even some modified street bikes. It is equipped with a built 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine, a 91-millimeter Garrett GT55 turbocharger, and it is running E85 fuel. The combination is good for a whopping 1,100hp. He goes up against some pretty heavy hitters in the street (roll) racing venue. The first is a Shelby Mustang GT500 (850whp) with a modified supercharger as well as some upgrades to the intake, throttle body, and exhaust. The second competitor is driving a GTR (600whp) with a Read More

Midwest Roll Racing – Import Power

December 31st, 2015

Time to take it out to the Midwest – err, Mexico that is – for some high octane roll racing. Don’t miss the best that this night of street racing had to offer as two of the “big dogs” of roll racing step up to claim some corn-fed bragging rights. These two cruisers are equipped with state-of-the-art turbocharger systems and they are really pumping out the power (930whp from the Nissan and 820whp for the Supra). The Nissan GT-R has been modified with an AMS Alpha 10 turbocharger package. It features custom fabricated intake and exhaust manifolds, aluminum intake and Read More

Nissan 240SX Giant Killer

December 28th, 2015

Can a dinky little import really get the jump on a big V8? Just watch this video and you can see for yourself. This little Nissan is running “No Prep” racing in the small tire class of the Outlaw division. On this night it manages to get to the finals before running into a bad Camaro with turbochargers and nitrous. He knocks off a Monte Carlo and a GTO (both with big block engines) as well as a couple of Mustangs (the last in a $500 grudge race). The “Mistress” box Nova was a little more than he could handle Read More

Chi-Town Street Shootout

December 22nd, 2015

This clip features big-league roll racing from the streets of Chicago. Some pretty heavy hitters showed up; including an array of Nissan GT-Rs, a turbocharged Porsche, and a 600hp Corvette Z06. Check out the action as these bad boys run three (and sometimes even four) wide through the streets of a deserted metropolis. The Z06 ‘Vette held his own throughout the night but the Alpha 9 GT-R proved to be untouchable (get it? another reference to Chicago?). It rolls out strong with an AMS performance package that incorporates a pair of Alpha 9 billet wheel turbochargers, Alpha spec wastegate actuators, Read More

St. Louis Street Car Takeover

December 21st, 2015

If you like heads up dig racing, then you’ll love this video. All of the entries in this event had to complete a mandatory 50-mile cruise through St. Louis to prove their street worthiness. It focuses on a turbocharged Foxbody Mustang as it makes its way through a field of elite level competitors. Rich Frost’s Mustang comes in well heeled with a 5.7-liter small block Ford engine and an 82-millimeter turbocharger. The combination is good for 1,200hp. He battles some pretty stiff competition, including the Beater Bomb, the Crusty Nova, an 1,100hp GT-R, a 1,000hp turbocharged C1500, and a 1,200+hp Read More

Toyota Powered 240SX Runs 8.09 @ 175 MPH

December 11th, 2015

To be precise, this Toyota 2JZ powered Nissan 240SX ran a 1/4-mile pass at 8.09, then ended the day with a nice relaxed drive home! I’ve gotta admire a street car that can run low E.T passes all day and then drive home at night. That racing Channel and Real Street Racing build and maintain this skillfully built concoction of Japanese get-up-and-go. We can’t wait to see this car dip lower and lower in elapsed times and higher and higher in trap speed. The TRC 240 has a built 9:1 3.0-liter 2JZ inline-six-cylinder engine with Manley internals and a Porting Read More

Import vs Domestic – NighTTmare Mustang and 1100HP GT-R

December 7th, 2015

If there is anything that makes racing more fun it’s lining up against an import. The ongoing battle between modified imports and home-grown hot rods has been raging longer than radial tires have been standard equipment and it is more fierce than ever. With today’s more powerful factory cars, the most competitive racing between imports and domestics may be yet to come. Here is a prime example: The NighTTmare Mustang Coyote is running a 5.0-liter MPR built engine with a beefed up 6R80 transmission and a pair of Gen2 6466 turbochargers (Hellion Kit). It has posted a best 1/4-mile time Read More

SEMA 2015 Highlights

December 3rd, 2015

If you (like I) missed the 2015 SEMA show in Las Vegas, here are a few video highlights that may help to soothe the wound. For starters there’s a full-custom JDM Nissan Sunny pickup with a tricked out SR-20 four-cylinder engine. This contraption weighs only about 1,800-pounds and makes 450hp. Next, we have an E28 BMW. You will seldom see a wilder suspension setup than the one on this car. It’s inboard mounted and push rod activated with aluminum mounts. The engine is an inline 6-cylinder (dry-sump oiling system) that has been seriously beefed up by VAC Motorsports in Philadelphia. Read More
