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

Mystery Solved – Beater Bomb Pops Hood

June 12th, 2018

So, this video is a little different. It documents the guys from 1320 as they saddle up and take a ride (by way of Mexico) over to an Omaha (NE) cruise-in car show. More importantly, the man, the myth, the legend – Beater Bomb – open his hood to finally let the world see what’s under there. Of course, when you get a group of gearheads on the asphalt, they can’t help but stomp the accelerator with frequency. That is especially true when you have outstanding examples like the Unicorn C5 Corvette ZR1 with a Huron Speed twin turbo kit Read More

CRAZY GT-R Ride Along

June 9th, 2018

As 1320 cameraman (Kyle) discovered during this video, when your butt is eating the seat you don’t really need a safety harness! This clip is coming at you from Cootamundra, Australia and they know about building bodacious turbocharged horsepower Down Under. The first car featured, a red R34 Nissan GT-R, is prepared by Mick and the crew at Motorsports Mechanical. It is loaded with a billett 3.2-liter inline 6-cylinder engine and a giant 94-millimeter Garrett turbocharger. Both our feature cars are of the GT-R variety and both (surprisingly) are rear-wheel drive only. The latter leads to some very intense moments Read More

1953 Chevy Bel Air – 10-Second Sleeper

June 7th, 2018

This is one of the most entertaining videos that I have seen in quite a while. If features a true street sleeper in the form of a beat up 1953 Chevrolet Bel Air. Never mind the rust and look past the patina – this thing is big and heavy but that don’t keep it from being fast! Of course, it all starts under the hood where a 6.0-liter LS (Chevy) V8 with an Isky camshaft and mild porting and polishing on the cylinder heads is working away. It’s also running a Precision turbocharger with Holley electronic fuel injection/engine management. The Read More

196 MPH Nismo GT-R Roll Racer

May 30th, 2018

This video begins with some 40 mph roll racing on the drag strip and wraps up with some dig racing. There’s something here for everybody. There’s also something terribly interesting about a car that can pull the front tires off the pavement. If it can ‘tote the front’ at 40 mph – it’s downright amazing and if it also happens to be an all-wheel drive vehicle – WOW! It’s mind numbing! Prepared by Miami Performance Incorporated (MPI), this fast moving Nissan GT-R Nismo is outfitted with an Alpha 16 turbocharger kit from Alpha Performance. This firm is on the cutting Read More
