10 Fastest Rides of Drag Week 2015

October 3rd, 2015

Hot Rod Drag Week is a unique event in which competitors line up in heads up dig racing action on 5 different tracks during a 5-day period. At the end of the event the racer with the lowest drag week average (DWA) from the 5 days of racing wins the title of HOT ROD’S fastest street car in America. Oh yeah, to earn the street car title, one must drive their dragster to each event (1,000-miles total). The competition is grueling with many competitors choosing to pull small cargo trailers to accommodate their personal effects, tools, and spare parts. Check Read More

September 29th, 2015

Come experience some southern hospitality in the A-T-L. Hot nights are in store and some even hotter street racing action. When the temperatures rise these southern boys (and girls) love to take to the streets in their souped up chariots and ice the competition. You have to see this collection of highly modified top-tier sports cars as they do battle for bragging rights down in Georgia. Roll racing rules apply – with 60 mph starts. First, there is a 650hp Porsche 911 going against a 650hp Nissan Gt-R. This is a closely contested race, then the Porsche tangles with a Read More

1200HP Turbo Toyota Goes 197MPH on Street Tires

September 24th, 2015

Check out this clip which delivers a 1,200+hp Toyota Supra daily driver that looks immaculate. This Sunshine State Thumper runs amuck during the Wanna GoFast weekend in the beautiful mountains of North Georgia. You really don’t expect to see a Toyota on street tires flying past the likes of a Nissan GT-R, but that is just exactly what happens. What a car! A combination of forced air induction and nitrous oxide provide the giddy-up-and-go for this Supra. A built RS1600 3.4-liter inline 6-cylinder engine is at the heart of the matter. Air is violently jammed into the six-banger via a Read More

1600WHP Supra Street and Dyno

September 23rd, 2015

Get a load of the Real Street built Toyota Supra, custom tuned by Jay Meagher. Despite having cold a/c and being very well behaved on the street, this Toy had quite a successful year at the strip. He even deflowered an Underground Lambo during TX2K. Today it racks up 1,603whp on the dyno! Check out the setup below. It all begins with a RS1600 3.4-liter inline 6-cylinder engine (with 10/1 compression), a Brian Crower 94mm billet stroker crank, Real Street Max Effort CP pistons, DLC coated wrist pins, Manley Tuff connecting rods, Real Street billet main bearing caps with ARP Read More

Viper TA Takes On 1000HP Nissan GT-R

September 17th, 2015

The DriverMod Viper TA is unleashed! That’s right – it is not chained to a dyno this time – it’s taking it to the streets against another radically modified beast of an automobile. Aptly named “Godzilla”, the Nissan GT-R is one of the most feared machines on the street. As a bonus, they are running against a stock Honda CBR1000 motorcycle. As seen a few days ago on DragTimes, the Viper TA engine is stock with an intake manifold upgrade, exhaust headers, and a 250 shot of Nitrous Outlet giggling gas. It is riding on CCW C12 racing wheels and Read More

1200HP Shelby GT500 Dyno Run

September 16th, 2015

Check out the heavily modified KP Performance Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 as it gets put through the paces on the dynamometer. The Big Blue Oval may not be known for mind-numbing power but this is one mean ‘Stang. The first dyno pass nets 1,012hp and 1.047 lb.-ft. of torque. After a few tweaks, it manages 1.027hp and 1,176 lb.-ft. of torque. By the way, it is running on E85 fuel. This pony has a Kenne Bell Mammoth supercharger, L&M built 5.0-liter small block Ford engine (bored and Darden sleeved to 5.4-liters) with Diamond pistons, and a 200 shot of nitrous. Read More

Hellcat Slayer? Cadillac CTS-V Street Racer

September 7th, 2015

It’s street racing – south of the border style and we got a pair of bad-axs Cadillacs lining up against all comers. The first one is equipped with a 125 shot of nitrous, a camshaft upgrade, and a crank pulley upgrade. He says that he’s making somewhere in the “high sixes” (kinda’ tongue in cheek, if you ask me). He then proceeds to walk the dog on a 750hp Dodge Challenger Hellcat with an aftermarket driveshaft and an E85 tune. Both cars are supercharged from the factory. Next up is a pretty blue Corvette Z06 with a 250 shot of Read More
