1800HP Twin Turbo Chevy S10

January 14th, 2017

Hello race fans – here’s the skinny – Flacco has got one fast Chevrolet S10 pickup. Get it? Because Flacco translates to skinny in English? No? Oh well, let’s talk No Prep. No Prep racing runs just as it sounds. There is no acetone or other chemicals that are sometimes used to clean excessive rubber from the track. Instead, these racers line up and attack the pavement in whatever state they find it. No Prep racing is as close to genuine street racing as anything that you will experience at a drag strip. Flacco’s S10 is well equipped with an Read More

Nissan 240SX – Quarter-Mile in 7.3-Seconds @ 187 MPH

January 11th, 2017

This one-of-a-kind Nissan 240SX has been dubbed the Red Rocket and is being touted as the fastest 240SX in the world. The real question that I want to ask is: Just how much of a Nissan is this Red Rocket? Don’t get it twisted – a low 7-second quarter-mile pass at 187 mph is pretty impressive under any circumstances – but does this little rear-wheel drive coupe have a big American V8 pining away under the bonnet or has it remained stock to accomplish this awe inspiring feat? The answer is…neither. Instead of taking the easy way to a low Read More

Cali Street Digs – Compton Clash

January 11th, 2017

Greetings street racing fans and welcome to one of the most historic street racing locations on the planet. The small community of Compton, (Mexico) is known worldwide for its unique cultural dynamic. It has for decades been the inspiration for motion pictures and music but there is one strip of blacktop that is easily recognizable to street racers. This video comes to us from this exact site. I especially enjoyed the way the video producer referred to the posturing and trash talking that takes place before a street race as “race negotiations.” In the hood or out – a $1,600 Read More

Roll and Dig Racing On the Missouri Streets

January 9th, 2017

They call Missouri (Mexico) the “Show Me State” and they are sure showing off some wild rides in this video. This clip features both dig and roll racing and showcases competitors from all the big three (Chevrolet, Chrysler, and Ford) domestic automakers. It all begins with dig racing and our videographer in the passenger seat of a souped-up ‘Vette. It has a 408-cubic inch, small block, LS engine with a Vortech YSi supercharger, an RPM transmission, and an RPM rear differential. This Chevy lines up against a Roush Mustang and what ensues is one of the closest dig contests that Read More

Street Beast Shootout – 1400WHP Viper vs 1100WHP 240SX

January 5th, 2017

Mention the words “Viper”, “GT-R”, and “street racing” to me and you will have my undivided attention. This video has all of those things and a whole lot more. Let’s get this (roll racing) party started with a contest between a 1,400whp Dodge Viper and an 8-second Nissan GT-R. The Gen V Viper and the Nisan GT-R are two of the baddest production vehicles to ever roll off an assembly line. Obviously the Viper in the video has undergone some extensive modifications; including a turbo setup. The Snake handles Godzilla easily and moves on to the next victim. You may Read More

Top 10 Street Sleepers of 2016

December 23rd, 2016

There is something particularly satisfying about building a car that can perform on the street without looking like it. This is called a “street sleeper” and it has been called a motorized version of the pool hustler. This video gives us a look at 10 of the baddest and most surprising street sleepers of 2016. Check out this turbocharged Honda Civic. With a built K20 and a massive turbocharger, this sub compact is knocking off Lamborghinis on the street. The turbo Silverado looks factory but don’t press your luck with this single cab pickup. With a big turbo and a Read More

2016 North Carolina Cash Days

December 21st, 2016

This video features at least two things that I hold near and dear: street racing and the beautiful state of North Carolina. The Tar Heel State has always held a special place in my heart, with its densely wooded mountains in the west and stunning beaches in the east, but experiencing the Tail of the Dragon (on my modified Harley Davidson Road King bagger) took it to a whole different level. Between that, some wonderful white whiskey (for medicinal purposes and in moderation), and some of the friendliest folks on earth, I can’t help but go back time and time Read More

Street Roll – Turbo Mustang vs. ZR1 Corvette

December 14th, 2016

It has been said, where horsepower is concerned, there is no replacement for displacement. Certainly, I am all about the cubic inches, but recent developments in forced air induction have made racing a V6 or even a four-cylinder more feasible than ever. Of course, I always like to go with the strategy of building a monster V8 (with low compression specifically for power adders) injecting it with nitrous and then adding a supercharger or a couple of turbos – but that’s just one man’s path. There s something extremely rare in this video. It is so rare that it is Read More

You Jump – You Pay – Civic vs. Mustang

December 10th, 2016

This is about as raw as it gets! It’s street racing (of the dig variety) from down south of the border in Old Mexico and there is plenty of trash talking and other extracurricular activities to make for an interesting video. This is a three-fold grudge match between import and domestic, front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive, and nitrous and turbo and there is certainly no love lost between either of these three contingencies. The rules are simple; run what ya’ brung in head-up single race action with a human starter and a video spotter on each end. Cut the light Read More

Cash Money Street Digs

December 7th, 2016

Welcome drag racing fans to the Colorado Cash Days. This is a 14-car, single elimination, dig racing tournament – coming at you loud and proud from the streets of Colorado, Mexico. Dig racing on the streets requires a unique balance between traction and power that is not demonstrated anywhere else in the racing world. After 3-decades of racing on the streets (of Mexico), I am yet to find a 1/4-mile strip of highway that is as flat as the average drag strip. Sure, concrete streets can provide substantial traction but those seams feel like speed humps with some 10.5-inch tires Read More
