Dirty South No-Prep

May 26th, 2017

This clip opens like the preview to a horror movie. It has pretty (but extremely capable) Kayla Morton battling a big old ugly White Zombie in her multi-colored Mustang ProMod. Most of you drag racing fans will probably remember Kayla from previous videos. In addition to being a solid racer, she is the significant other of Street Outlaws’ Boosted GT driver, Chris Hamilton. I hope that most of you will also remember the White Zombie (from earlier in the month). We saw it at an event cursed with a terrible loss of traction, chiefly attributed to cold weather.

Super Sleeper Impala SS

May 26th, 2017

This video is stacked with awesome looking high-performance automobiles. It documents a car show which took place at Performance HQ in San Antonio, Texas. Performance HQ has a reputation of creating outlandish street and strip cars with optimum performance and reliability in mind. This clip captures what was taking place during their grand re-opening and the crew literally opens their doors to show us some inside information on project cars and customer builds. With the showroom full of unique offerings, the parking lot began to fill up with all kinds of modified transportation. There were exotics, including names like Rolls Read More

WHITE ZOMBIE – 1967 Chevy II

May 24th, 2017

No, it doesn’t stumble through the streets mumbling monster mumbo-jumbo, nor does it thirst for the taste of human blood, but the WHITE ZOMBIE is one-hundred-percent scary! While we understand that the WHTE ZOMBUE will (one day  soon) be scary fast, the San Antonio Bounty Hunters No-Prep Event finds this monster of a drag car in need of a driver. The zombie’s intended wheel-man is away at a weekend wedding and didn’t make the trip. That puts the car’s owner behind the wheel and – let’s just say – it’s a good thing that nobody got hurt. The crew of Read More

Afternoon Delight – KC Street Digs

May 5th, 2017

Honestly, I can count on one finger the number of times that I have been involved in street digs while the sun was up. Let’s face it, most street racing takes place under cover of darkness and it’s a lot of fun that way. Having that said; this Cash Days dig racing event from Kansas City (Mexico) was refreshing because you can see a lot more detail inside the cockpit of these complex machines. Have a gander for yourself. As usual, this is single elimination, winner take all fun. You can’t jump the light or cross the center line or Read More

Road Rage – Underground Lambo vs. Hayabusa

April 18th, 2017

Wow! These street bikes move like something from another galaxy! The question is: Are they faster than a highly modified Underground Racing (UR) Lamborghini? Let’s take a look. Even in stock form, a Lamborghini Superleggera is the delight of many car enthusiasts. The mere mention of Underground Racing compounds that delight a million times. The twin turbo kit from UR uses a pair of 67-milimeter Precision turbochargers and a MoTeC controller to increase horsepower from the 600hp range to 1,500hp (1,300whp). These UR Lamborghinis are super fast and in constant contention for all kinds of top speed world records but Read More

3-Wide Street Dig and Roll from Mexico

April 12th, 2017

This is how they do it south of the border – down (Nuevo) Mexico way. One could call this clip “Street Racing at its Best”. There are cars from all over the globe; Acura, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Dodge, Diamond Star Motors (DSM), Ford, Honda (rear-engine, 500hp?!), Nissan, and Subaru are all well represented here. Rolls The evening begins with a pair of supercharged C6 ‘Vettes locking horns in roll racing action. This turns out to be one of the closest races of the night. Next up, you have a couple of roll passes that feature a herd of the baddest Ford Read More

840HP Dodge Demon – Test Hit

April 12th, 2017

Fiat Chrysler America (FCA) is set to raise the bar even higher in the area of high-performance stock production vehicles. The official announcement of the impending 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has sports car enthusiasts foaming at the mouth in anticipation of its release. The Demon will be the first performance machine ever offered with drag radials and the most powerful mass production vehicle ever made in the U.S. Not to be confused with the 707hp Hellcat, Dodge SRT has totally redesigned the propulsion system in the Demon and added a few new and innovative twists that should be thought Read More

2JZ Powered S10 Pickup Runs Sixes

April 10th, 2017

At Lights Out 8, down in South Georgia, there was certainly no shortage of S10 pickups . S10 pickup carcasses are everywhere, so it’s relatively easy to pick up a pickup and throw in an LS small block or even a big block and put down a pretty decent pass on the street or strip. Well, the owner of the truck featured in this video chose a slightly different path. Maybe there were no LS engines available in his neck of the woods, perhaps he is a V8-hater, or peradventure that he was going for a lightweight theme – I Read More

1500HP 2JZ Corolla – GT-R Killer

April 7th, 2017

How bad has this got to suck? First, you pay over $100k for a high-performance Nissan GT-R, dump a bunch more cash in it to make it even faster, then carry it out to the drag strip. All sounds great so far, huh? So, you’re having a pretty good day, then you line up against an eighties Toyota Corolla Hatch. I mean the ‘Yota looks alright with its backyard graphics and big tires but you got this from start to finish, right? Wrong! The Toyota takes the hole shot from you and gaps your behind by several lengths! Ouch! What Read More

Twin Turbo Corvette – 212 MPH in Eighth-Mile

April 4th, 2017

How about some good old drag racing action, on radial tires, and an 1/8-mile drag strip? That’s three of the things this video yields. You also get the see Mark Woodruff, in his awesome looking twin turbocharged Corvette, break the radial tire 1/8-mile top speed world record – not once but twice. Lights Out 8 brings you Radial vs. The World with some of the biggest and baddest names in radial tire drag racing. NovaJoe was on hand in his wild looking GTO; as was Stevie “FAST” Jackson, Barry Mitchell, and Keith Haynes. Mark and the crew laid down great Read More
