Hillbilly Deluxe – 1960 Chevy C10 1500HP

July 10th, 2019

This is a must see No Prep monster. Not your everyday, run-of-the-mill dragster; this is one stunning 1960 C10 shortbed pickup truck. The body is all steel except for the front clip and the bed sides. Equipped with a built small block Chevy V8 and a pair of air-to-water intercooled 88-millimeter Magnum turbochargers, this heavy hauler is capable of churning out 1,500hp. Shifting duties are handled with a Powerglide transmission and the engine is burning alcohol. The eighth-mile No Prep racing action begins with Hillbilly Deluxe (HD) in the left lane and a 1978 Cadillac Coupe de Ville (yes, you Read More

Street Hits – TT Audi R8 vs. Procharged Corvette Z06

July 4th, 2019

The evenings are getting warmer and that can only mean one thing; it’s time for some roll racing. Tonight, these guys are taking it to the streets (of Mexico) to see who has the fastest car from 60 mph to 150mph. Let’s go! In the first pass, we have an 1,100hp Nissan GT-R (white) rolling against a turbocharged Mustang Fastback. Both cars come out of the hole violently and it remains close throughout. Mustang FTW. Next up is a 1,000hp Toyota Supra against the same Nissan. This time the GT-R is victorious. The same GT-R hooks up with an 1,100hp Read More

7-Second Dodge Viper World Record Holder

July 4th, 2019

Bet you thought those Georgia rednecks from Vengeance Racing only wrenched on Chevy cars, huh? Well, get ready for an education. This snake holds numerous world records; mostly in the Viper category, naturally. It is adequately equipped with a stock (8.4-liter) engine block that has been reinforced. Stock? Reinforced? Who knows what it all means to a world record holder – all I know is that reinforced don’t sound stock. Neither does “big internals” but that’s their biscuit. I’ll let ‘em butter it however they like. Besides the built “stock” bottom end, there are a pair of massive turbochargers. I Read More

Stick Shift Struggles – RMRW – Day 4

June 26th, 2019

Looking for adventure? Try day-tripping with the “stick shift class” during a drive-only day of Rocky Mountain Race Week. That’s over 400-miles, on pig trails and back-roads in Nebraska and Colorado; with an elite drag (street) racing car using a manually shifted transmission. Don’t forget – that’s after a few days of abuse on the dragstrip. Buckle up! It’s going to get interesting. The day begins with a ride along in a 1964 Ford Fairlane, complete with bench seat and manual transmission. This is one of the slickest restomods you’ll ever find, and it is pulling an enclosed travel trailer. Read More

700-Miles In – Rocky Mountain Race Week – Day 3

June 21st, 2019

After a long day on the road yesterday, the racers are checking in at the Julesburg Drag Strip in Colorado. This is the oldest operating drag strip in the U.S. Bad news is that the weather is wet. Good news is that the rain is subsiding, and it has cooled things off a bit. Race cars like it cool. Racers are looking a little tattered 700-miles into this excursion. Nevertheless, there are some top-tier competitors gnashing on the bridle to get back on the track. There’s a stunning yellow Mustang that has undergone a terrible struggle. The alternator belt broke Read More

Over the Mountains – Rocky Mountain Race Week 2019

June 19th, 2019

Day One of Rocky Mountain Race Week is over and it’s time for these racers to pack up their cars and drag their gear over the Rocky Mountains. Bound for Jefferson County, Colorado and the Bandimere Speedway (aka Thunder Mountain), these street/strip vehicles will be tested with a 200-mile trek that is almost all uphill. This is certainly the most demanding leg of this 1,000-mile road trip that many competitors claim is the most difficult part of this event. We are not on the road long when vehicles begin to drop like flies. A broken rack-and-pinion bracket, a vapor-locked fuel Read More

Gearhead Gathering – Rocky Mountain Race Week 2019

June 18th, 2019

Welcome to one of the most grueling tests of man and machine to be found anywhere on earth. Drag cars – designed to accelerate quickly over a short distance, reach a maximum speed and suddenly come to a near halt – are charged with travelling to four venues over seven-days. The drag cars must be driven the 1,000-miles (roundtrip) over the Rocky Mountains and back! Bru-tal! It is common to see a tubbed-out muscle car or late model, pulling a travel trailer full of tools and car parts, during Rocky Mountain Race Week. Unfortunately, it’s also pretty common to see Read More

8-Second Mustang ZR1 LS Swap

June 11th, 2019

Is it a waste of a good Corvette engine? Is it a Gen IV Mustang gone rogue? The answer depends on which manufacturer camp you represent. Chevy purists hate it for the former and Ford loyalists despise it as the latter. Now, don’t get it twisted – when I cut myself, tiny little bowties ooze out – but I see this build from a practical standpoint, and it looks pretty sweet. This “power couple” had the Mustang sitting around when a customer totaled their supercharged Corvette ZR1 with an LS9 mill between the fenders. Out came the blue oval cluster Read More

McLaren 570S Street Hits – ZR1, Mustang, Hellcat

June 5th, 2019

Summer’s here and the time is right for racing in the streets (of Mexico). You don’t see many McLarens on the street racing (roll or dig) scene in my neck of the woods. Nevertheless, this cat is out there trolling the highways for potential victims. Problem is, that this British bombshell might just let his alligator persona overload his jaybird capabilities. This murderer’s row of homegrown hooligans is no joke. We have an LSx powered Corvette with an F1X ProCharger claiming 850hp. There are a pair of ‘Vette entries of the ZR1 variety. Both have cylinder head and camshaft upgrades. Read More
