Drag Racing BMW i8

August 3rd, 2015

In this video, you will witness an all-wheel drive, 4-passenger BMW i8 coupe going head to head with such supercars as the Ferrari Speciale and the Nissan GT-R. Surprisingly, despite having a horsepower rating of only 357, the i8 seems to hold its own in every contest, even winning a bout or two. As you may know, the BMW i8 is a hybrid powered coupe that is equipped with an intercooled and twin turbocharged 1.5-liter L91, inline 3-cylinder (yes, 3) engine, with direct fuel injection and 2-electric motors. It has a curb weight of 3,455-pounds and can achieve 60 mph Read More

New Mexico Gang Style Street Racing

July 6th, 2015

What do you get when you pit four elite level forced air induction street racing machines against one another on the thoroughfares of New Mexico? You get cops, controversy, and tons of speed. You also get street racing – wild, wild, West style. Check out this feature video. First things first; the Corvette is running a supercharged 416-cubic-inch stroker motor with a 200 shot of nitrous. The owner/operator claims a dyno-certified 1,101hp and he is riding on Mickey Thompson E/T Streets. Next is an Alpha prepared Nissan GT-R. These cars are always ready for just about anything. He is also Read More

Baddest Pickups on the Planet: HPT Shootout 2015

July 2nd, 2015

Can you imagine turning out a 6.5-second quarter mile at 229 mph in a farm truck? What about busting 100 mph in the eighth mile with your camper shell door opening and slamming all the way? Well, that is just what this rowdy bunch of speed junkies live for. They are gathered here, at the Royal Purple Raceway in Houston, Texas, to prove that they have the baddest pickup trucks on the planet. It is Ford against Chevrolet, old against new, and full-size against compact, as these skilled race teams put it all n the line and let it all Read More

Street Racing: Corvette Chaos

July 1st, 2015

Who brings their car to a street race on a trailer? Someone who has come from one state away to take your cookies – that’s who. This video brings you a couple of highly modified late model (a 2001 and a 2009 model) Corvettes as they square off on the streets in an epic battle of supercharger versus nitrous. The “out-of-towner” sports a 2009 Corvette Z06 with a built 408-cubic-inch LSX engine, a YSI Vortech supercharger set at 18psi, and an EFI 128 tuner. It is running E98 fuel and riding on Mickey Thompson E/T rubber wrapped around 15-inch Weld Read More

Street Racing: 1951 Chevy Business Coupe

June 22nd, 2015

You have to deal with all kinds of business in this life. There is good business, bad business, dirty business, serious business – there is even monkey business – but this New Mexico based street racer is all about a different kind of business. This portly looking old car is inspired by the BEATER BOMB, but it looks one heckuva’ lot better. With the appearance of a classic cruiser and the launch of a pro-stock dragster, this ’51 Chevrolet Business Coupe is a genuine street sleeper. This ride is from an era when bumpers were made of chromed steel and Read More

Late Model Corvette Street Racing

June 3rd, 2015

It is a Corvette-fest down south of the border, in the sunny Mexico Racing League. Watch as these late model Z06s, ZR1s, and GSs do battle on the streets of Old Mexico (Yeah). The order of the day is rolling starts and awesome horsepower as these drivers “let it all hang out” displaying monstrous cubic inches, heavy-breathing superchargers, and volatile nitrous oxide injections. Your ride-along car is a Yellow, late model, Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, known as “The Banana”. Despite packing a huge punch (650HP) in factory trim, this ‘Vette is equipped with upgraded cylinder heads and camshaft, a Magnuson heat Read More

Street Racing: NOS/Supercharged Camaro ZL1 vs. Viper T/A

May 29th, 2015

Check out this contest of speed that begins as a 60 mph rolling race and morphs into a Snake show. With advertised horsepower ratings being a little “flexible” where street racers are concerned, it should come as no surprise when a 632HP car overcomes a 750HP car on an apparently deserted stretch of highway. That is the case in this video from That Racing Channel. The Camaro appears to gain the early edge but the Viper is having none of it; coming back to take the victory in the end. We neither condone or encourage racing on public streets. The Read More

1,000HP Air Force Won Mustang Wins Three Consecutive No Prep Events

May 25th, 2015

If you want to see some good head-to-head racing action, without all of the lights and timers, then you want to see some “No Prep” drag racing. This is just two cars, two drivers, two pit crews, and a quarter-mile of straight, flat blacktop. It seems that owner/driver Shayne Ward and the Air Force Won team have found the groove in the “small tire” class, winning three major 2015 events in a row (Kansas Dragway, Northstar Dragway, and Texas Dragway). A Morgan & Sons small-block (388 c.i.d.) Ford racing engine, Powerglide transmission, and Ford 8.8-inch rear differential all combine to Read More

Super Diesel Dyno and Drag Racing

May 14th, 2015

The Super Diesel Shootout, presented by Shell, features some of the most powerful diesel powered light-duty trucks on the planet. There is even a diesel powered top fuel dragster. The Overkill single-cab Chevrolet Silverado in this video not only made a 9.47-second pass @ 145.37 mph but also posted a high-water mark of 1,700-horsepower and 2,500 lb.-ft. of torque on the dyno – that’s right, 2,500.

Ultra Street Coverage Sub 5-Second 1/8-Mile

May 5th, 2015

Take a look at this video that features tons of early/late model matchups (as well as lots of GM/Ford matchups) in some close heads-up racing. There is even an early/late model GTO battle at the onset. The footage was obtained during last weekend’s Street Car Shootout at the Cecil County Dragway in Rising Sun, Maryland. The class is Ultra Street and the cars are outstanding. Ronnie Rhodes is on hand in his small block powered (with nitrous) ’68 Camaro. When the afternoon sun gets hot, he lays down a 4.95 @ 141.89 mph, and it appears that he will outclass Read More
