1500HP Procharged Duster

August 25th, 2017

It’s impossible to catch a ghost. Scientist and paranormal experts have tried for years to capture any form of ghost but – up until now – no ghost! This aptly named (The Ghost) 1972 Plymouth Duster also proved very elusive at the NEAD No Prep Throwdown in Oskaloosa, Iowa. With a 572 cubic-inch HEMI engine and an F2 Procharger, it might do you well to be scared of this Ghost. Despite making approximately 1,500hp (on 21-pounds of boost), the Ghost is still riding on stock suspension (front and rear). A TorqueFlite 727 transmission transfers all that power to the rear Read More

Square-Nose Chevy C10 Dominates Cash Days

August 17th, 2017

Greetings race fans and welcome to the Midwest Slow Car Cash Days. This is an event for competitors with 800hp or less. Please say hello to our feature truck. It is a gutted, tubbed, and caged Chevrolet C10 pickup with a small block engine and a nitrous injection. While there is nothing fancy about this C10, with its matte military themed paint scheme and standard steel wheels, it is consistent and quick coming out of the hole. The first contest in this single elimination event pits a great looking Nova SS against the C10. The pickup hooks up well and Read More

The Kitchen LS RX7 Tames the Track

August 7th, 2017

Once upon a time… some drag strip clowns told Brandi Sharp (she is extra sharp – by the way) to “get back in the kitchen”. Well, Brandi liked that idea so much that she brought her kitchen to the track and now she whips their tails with it. As you have already figured out – Brandi’s kitchen is an LS (6.0-liter) powered Mazda RX7. The engine has forged connecting rods and pistons and a large shot (300hp) of nitrous. The little coupe is making around 700hp and Brandi really knows how to use it. Brandi is a competitive No-Prep racer Read More

Track Rolls & Digs – 1,400HP Turbo Mustang

July 31st, 2017

Greetings racing fans – this video brings you two kinds of fun! The feature car – a late-model Mustang – is built for street racing but moving onto the drag strip eliminates the stress of being on the lookout for John Law and possibly crashing into a minivan full of civilians. It’s a good alternative when available. Street Car Takeover in Denver offers racers a chance to get in some roll racing and dig racing. If you can believe it; this couple is out at the track on the day before their blessed nuptials. Oh well, the couple that plays Read More

A New Kind of Hybrid – 2JZ 240sx

July 28th, 2017

Greetings drag racing fans! Allow me to introduce a new type of hybrid propulsion system to you all. This is not your average, so-so, hum-drum gasoline over electric hybrid; it is a Nissan over Toyota, with a healthy dose of turbocharged/nitrous. The owner calls it a V8 Killer. Never mind the backyard paint job – this Nissan finds a way to consistently get down the track with very little tire slip, despite being rear-wheel drive. The inline 6-cylinder Toyota 2JZ is professionally built and is being force fed by a massive 7675 Precision turbocharger (45-pounds of boost). It has a Read More

Crazy 900HP Hellcat – Street Rolls

July 27th, 2017

This kitty has dangerously sharp claws. The Dodge Hellcat Charger is the most potent sedan ever produced (in stock trim). Our feature car is not only wrapped in a wild paint scheme, it has undergone some major enhancements under the hood. The Tar Heel State (of Mexico) is home to some seriously competitive street racing. This time, we are taking to the highway for elite roll racing action and there are some heavy hitters in attendance. Of course, the star of this video is the 900hp Hellcat but there are also a set of impressive Nissan GT-Rs, some quality Corvettes, Read More

Underdog Nova No-Prep

July 25th, 2017

Proving that more is not always better, this 400 cubic-inch small block powered Nova tore up the track and the competition during the New Edge Automotive and Detailing (NEAD) No-Prep Throwdown at the Eddyville Raceway in Oskaloosa, IA. Competing in the Small Tire Class and the Big Tire Class, this Chevy launched out of the hole and into the finals (of both classes) despite having a stock small block engine with a cast iron intake (single-carb) and only one kit (fogger plate) of nitrous. No-Prep drag racing presents its own peculiar list of challenges to every racer daring enough to Read More

Old Smokey – 1200WHP 1947 Ford Pickup

July 24th, 2017

Meet Scott Birdsell. Scott pulled this 1949 Ford Pickup out of the woods after finding it on Craigslist and shelling out $225 of his hard earned dollars. The truck had been immobile for decades and had developed the unique mixture of patina and paint scheme that you see before you today. Scott simply sprayed a little silicone on the body and left it at that. Oh, he also threw in a full tubular racing chassis, a heavily built 5.9-liter Cummins turbo-diesel engine, and a compound (twin) turbocharger setup with a complex network of air-to-air and air-to-water intercoolers. As if that Read More

Is FWD Faster? 950HP Civic

July 7th, 2017

With a built 2.0-liter, four-cylinder, engine  and a 6785 twin-scroll turbocharger, this Honda Civic is taking on V8 powered Mustangs and Camaros with reckless abandonment. Not only is he taking them on – he’s whipping them in the majority of his races. Helping the underdog import to surprise all those V8 jockeys is a wild looking custom intake manifold from KS Tuned in Kennewick, WA and dual (2 per cylinder) 2000cc ID fuel injectors. Today the little Honda that could is running in the Banger Class at Chi-Town’s King of the Streets. This is a class set up for cars with Read More

King of the Streets – Grinch Mustang

June 28th, 2017

The Grinch certainly wasn’t the shiniest car at King of the Streets (KOTS) Chicago – it wasn’t even the prettiest car in the Gangster Class. Fortunately for the Grinch crew, it ain’t how you look but what you have under the hood. What the Grinch has under the hood is a borrowed (big thanks to Corn Dog!) big block and a few kits of nitrous. Power is estimated to be in the 1,200hp range. After winning the Gangster Class at KOTS in 2016, and struggling all week to supplant their hurt motor with the borrowed big block mill, it would Read More
