Nitrous vs. Turbo – Viper vs. Mustang

August 26th, 2016

This black beauty of a Fox Body Mustang is making 1,100whp with a 363 cubic-inch aluminum Dart Racing engine, high performance cylinder heads, and a massive 83-millimeter turbocharger. It’s putting those ponies to the ground with a built automatic racing transmission. After spending a day at the track, and posting an 8.64-second ET at 159.19 mph, the pony car takes to the streets looking for some action. If you are looking for action, chances are that you will find some. This time it comes in the form of a burnt orange Viper SRT. The Dodge Viper SRT is producing 972whp. Read More

Outlaw Armageddon – BOOST12 Mustang Dominates Small Tire Class

August 24th, 2016

The BOOST12 Cobra Mustang (prepared by Dean’s Perfromance) is arguably one of the baddest street cars on planet earth, with a big block Chevrolet engine and a pair of turbochargers. Nevertheless, it runs in the small tire class of No Prep Drag Racing. That can make it pretty challenging to even get down the track without an incident, much less win a fat wad of cash ($20K today) by making it through the finals. It’s Outlaw Armageddon and, after a successful night of testing, round one at Thunder Valley Raceway Park begins with the BOOSTED12 Mustang going against a capable Read More

Birkacup Street Elimination Tournament

August 19th, 2016

The Birkacup street eliminator has got to be the greatest single invention of the Swedish people. How awesome would it be to have a national street racing tournament, where the baddest cars in the land come to compete in heads-up single elimination dig racing? Of course, in the U.S., it would need to take place south of the border. Get this: These guys block off a section of the interstate and get down! Road rage must be a lot different in the city of Stockholm than it is in the States. I don’t know how things work in your town Read More

Heirloom Nova Posts Consistent 8-Second Passes

August 17th, 2016

You have to love hand-me-downs like this pretty 1970 Chevrolet Nova. This work in progress has been owned by members of the same family for more than two decades. In that time, it has gone from being a weekend street warrior (with a bench seat and a column shifter) to the turbocharged work of art that you see in this video. When this racer’s brother owned the Nova, it ran in the 12s. After it underwent a serious upgrade to a big block engine, it dropped down into the 10s. That was followed up by a small block with nitrous. Read More

East Coast Street Racing – Twelve Cars Race for $1200

August 16th, 2016

That’s right baby! This is an East Coast (of Mexico – of course) style, single elimination tournament with twelve drivers contributing $100 each – and the final round winner is driving away with all the cash. While $1200 may not seem like a bunch of money to you; there are some people (myself included) that consider that a pretty good night’s fun (it ain’t work). One of the best things about having a cash-pool is that the competitors have to exit their vehicles and come together for a brief period. This usually results in a lot of trash talking and Read More

1000HP Hellcat Tears Up the Streets

August 16th, 2016

This Dodge Charger Hellcat is currently on a bit of a high horse – High Horse Performance, that is. The team at HHP helped this driver squeeze 1,000hp (950whp) from his 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI by adding a Diablosport tuner, a 2.85 crank pulley, a Green serpentine belt, a cat delete package, a set of Nitto NT 555R drag radials, and a nitrous kit. In factory trim the Hellcat Charger is touted as the baddest production sedan ever made. The 6.2-liter HEMI V8 makes 707hp and 650 lb-ft. of torque. Tonight, he is out trolling the streets for some action and he Read More

Canadian No Prep Mustang

August 3rd, 2016

This is how it’s done up North, eh? Johnny Quick says that this sweet red Mustang is running a 5.0-liter engine with lots of nitrous but I get the sneaking suspicion that it might be a little bigger than that. Holbrook Racing Engines is known for their work with Ford power-plants and their reputation speaks for itself. Despite the fact that JQ was more than a little apprehensive about giving us the 4-1-1 on his setup, he did indicate that he was hooking up with a four-link rear suspension. Well, attempting to hook up, that is. I don’t think that Read More

Rocky Mountain Race Week – Blown Mustang

July 11th, 2016

In the epitome of “run what ya’ brung” racing, these teams (sometimes teams of one) are asked to compete in an event that encompasses 4 races in five days; on a 1,300-mile road trip. These teams begin with a full night of racing in Kearney, Nebraska before heading out to the next drag strip in Denver, Colorado (many drag cars with a trailer in tow). After Denver, these guys will move on to Pueblo, Colorado before turning around and driving back to Kearney, with a short stop in Great Bend, Kansas at the S.R.C.A. Dragstrip. Don’t miss Larry Larson in his twin Read More

3000HP Ego Mustang

July 5th, 2016

This crew has recently made the swap from a Fox Body to a New Edge Mustang. Among the things that have remained the same is the big block Chevrolet engine that is helping to lay down an astronomical amount of horsepower. Despite the capacity for making approximately 3,000hp, this New Edge ‘Stang is running in the small tire class at No Prep No Excuses – and making no excuses. The engine is a Pro Line 548 cubic-inch number with a pair of 94-millimeter turbochargers.  The transmission is a Power Glide and the car seems to be getting hooked up fairly Read More

No Prep Gangster – Fox Body Mustang

June 22nd, 2016

You have probably heard of Boosted Solutions (out of Chestertown, Indiana). They campaign The Fugitive. It is a 3,500hp Chevy powered Mustang that kills at major No Prep events. This video brings us the newest project that the guys at Boosted Solutions are campaigning in the Gangster Class at King of the Streets in Chicago. No Prep is the hottest ticket in drag racing right now. This Fox Body Mustang is equipped with a 118-millimeter turbocharger. It don’t come out of the hole as fast as some but it manages to get down the 1320 in good time – good Read More
