Street Racing Spectacular – Import vs. Domestic

September 4th, 2017

There is literally something for every street racing enthusiast in this video! Of course, there are tons of fast cars in every size and shape – imports and domestics, turbo and nitrous, standard and automatic. There are dig and roll races (sometimes 3-wide). There’s even a wreck and a fight (sort of). The backdrop is beautiful (New) Mexico and its flat landscape. It’s perfect for street racing. There is a bodacious DSM (1990s Mitsubishi Eclipse or Eagle Talon) that is capable of 1,000hp – from a stock 2.0-liter engine with over 100K miles. You know that there were tons of Read More

Turbo LS Nissan Hardbody – Street Racing

August 31st, 2017

This little Nissan pickup is a perfect example of how to build a street racer. You begin with a small and lightweight body. I would like for it to be rear-wheel drive (four-wheel drive is also nice but more difficult to find). It must be something common so that it will be economical (like this compact Nissan pickup). It doesn’t have to be pretty but it needs to be free of rust and without any major dents. Next, we need to shop for an engine. The Chevrolet 5.3-liter LS engine is plentiful and cheap. It is also more economical to Read More

Ohio Street Digs for Cash

August 30th, 2017

These cats in Ohio (Mexico) really know how to have a good time. You begin by finding an abandoned strip of industrial park pavement (3-lane if you can get it). Next, you invite a bunch of gear heads with fast cars and charge them a $100 buy-in on a winner-take-all pot. The rules are simple: It’s run-what-ya’-brung, single elimination, dig racing action. If you win – you move on to the next round. If you lose, you go back on the trailer. Competitors draw cards at the start of each round to determine pairings. Don’t jump (leave early) and don’t Read More

Gold Dust Mustang Crushes Eighth-Mile

August 29th, 2017

Hello racing fans and welcome to LightsOut8 from the South Georgia Motorsports Park! Among the contenders in the PRO275 Class this weekend, we have none other than Fletcher Cox (owner not driver). Fletcher is an NFL defensive lineman with the Philadelphia Eagles. Fletcher is among the elite defensive linemen in the NFL and loves drag racing. He has built at least two high-powered Mustangs. The one featured in this clip has a very special backstory. Fletcher’s late brother (Trell Cox) loved the sports entertainment (professional wrestling) character known as Gold Dust. The paint job on this car is skillfully done Read More

1600HP Supra Street Hits

August 28th, 2017

Greetings race fans! I think that most of you would agree that the Supra is the holy grail for Toyota performance enthusiasts. Between the sporty exterior, the comfortable but supportive cockpit, and ease of engine/turbo modification; the Supra has taken its place at the forefront of Toyota street (and strip) racing machines. This video documents a high powered Toyota Supra getting some street hits (in Mexico). There are several rolling anti-lag passes and some two-step action is definitely on display. This Mark IV Supra is equipped with a Titan Motorsports 3.4-liter stroker motor. A single Garrett GT 47-88 turbocharger (30 Read More

1500HP Procharged Duster

August 25th, 2017

It’s impossible to catch a ghost. Scientist and paranormal experts have tried for years to capture any form of ghost but – up until now – no ghost! This aptly named (The Ghost) 1972 Plymouth Duster also proved very elusive at the NEAD No Prep Throwdown in Oskaloosa, Iowa. With a 572 cubic-inch HEMI engine and an F2 Procharger, it might do you well to be scared of this Ghost. Despite making approximately 1,500hp (on 21-pounds of boost), the Ghost is still riding on stock suspension (front and rear). A TorqueFlite 727 transmission transfers all that power to the rear Read More

Square-Nose Chevy C10 Dominates Cash Days

August 17th, 2017

Greetings race fans and welcome to the Midwest Slow Car Cash Days. This is an event for competitors with 800hp or less. Please say hello to our feature truck. It is a gutted, tubbed, and caged Chevrolet C10 pickup with a small block engine and a nitrous injection. While there is nothing fancy about this C10, with its matte military themed paint scheme and standard steel wheels, it is consistent and quick coming out of the hole. The first contest in this single elimination event pits a great looking Nova SS against the C10. The pickup hooks up well and Read More

The Kitchen LS RX7 Tames the Track

August 7th, 2017

Once upon a time… some drag strip clowns told Brandi Sharp (she is extra sharp – by the way) to “get back in the kitchen”. Well, Brandi liked that idea so much that she brought her kitchen to the track and now she whips their tails with it. As you have already figured out – Brandi’s kitchen is an LS (6.0-liter) powered Mazda RX7. The engine has forged connecting rods and pistons and a large shot (300hp) of nitrous. The little coupe is making around 700hp and Brandi really knows how to use it. Brandi is a competitive No-Prep racer 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

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
