KC Cash Days – Street Digs

December 1st, 2016

Big tire versus small tire – cars versus pickups – Fords, Chevys, Mopars, and imports all lining up in head-to-head no prep street racing action. It’s a wild time on the Kansas City street racing scene. A private landowner has opened up his own personal drag strip to all comers and a tremendous contingent of top-tier competitors has turned out to win a fat stack of cash in single elimination, run-whatcha-brung, dig racing. Small tire guys are always whining about big tire guys whipping them. Big tire guys cry because setting their cars up costs more than the small tire Read More

Mad About Street Racing – Import vs. Domestic

November 29th, 2016

The time tested rivalry between imports and domestics rages violently on the streets of Mexico. This video brings us a bevy of radically modified street cars (and a couple of high-performance street bikes) gathering to compete in a contest of intellect, guts, and speed. You guessed it – it’s roll racing with multiple Go Pro setups providing tons of camera angles to make it feel like you are in the passenger seat. There’s a (1,100hp) Mustang Shelby GT500, with a 4.6-liter Whipple supercharger, that I have been anxiously waiting to see in competition rolling out against Lil’ Red; a DSM Read More

Import vs Domestic World Cup – 2400HP Supra

November 16th, 2016

Greetings race fans and welcome to Maryland for the Haltech Import vs. Domestic World Cup. Today we are in for a treat as domestic and import dragsters battle it out for bragging rights and big bucks in single elimination, head-to-head, drag racing action. The feature car of this video is owned by Accelerated Performance. This is a firm which has chosen to remain loyal to their import creed even while those around them beef up their imports with bigger LS based engines. This methanol fueled 1994 Supra is cutting lights and rolling through the 1320 in lickety-split fashion with an Read More

Five-Second Twin Turbo Fox Body

November 13th, 2016

It’s raining fives! You don’t want to miss this video depiction of the Fiscus/Klugger TT Mustang becoming the first radial tire equipped car to dip into 5-second territory (5.92-seconds @ 249 mph) in the 1/4-mile. As if that wasn’t good enough, the Fiscus/Klugger Team continued to rain down 5-second passes (in the 240+ mph range) throughout the weekend on the way to stealing the show and taking home the $20,000 in prize money at the Haltech World Cup Finals. This Fox Body Mustang weighs in at a svelte 3,100-pounds and is well heeled with a pair of Precision 94-millimeter turbochargers Read More

Crazy Twin Turbo LS Powered Lexus IS300

November 10th, 2016

Like most drag racing fans, the prospect of a big engine in a really small and lightweight car is intriguing to me. It all began for me way back when with a built (four-bolt mains of course) small block Chevy engine in a Chevrolet Vega, nicknamed “Cherry Bomb” because it exploded through the 1320. Unfortunately, those Vegas are getting pretty difficult to find at a reasonable price. The good news is that lightweight import shells are out there and they’re a dime a dozen. If you have some mechanical aptitude and a few fabrication (cutting and welding) skills, you can Read More

1200HP Scion Dyno and Street

October 26th, 2016

This video takes us on a walk through, a dyno test, and a spirited street run in a Scion FRS. With its real-wheel drive platform and relatively light gross vehicle weight (3,500 to 3,700-pounds), the FRS is the perfect starting point for any street or strip project. This car has also got a great set of lines and an aggressive stance that caught my attention from its inception. Theoretically, one could jerk out the 200hp factory mill and fill this engine bay up with an LS V8 and the transmission that goes with it, with very little fabrication. You’d still Read More

Coyote Terrorizes Texas Streets

October 26th, 2016

Before y’all go jumping in my crap about this very catchy title, several points are accurate. There is a Coyote 5.0-liter engine in the Mustang (with two-turbochargers) and this hot handful of street racing is coming to you from the streets of Texas, Mexico. The Coyote, on the other hand, is far less than dominant in most of these contests. The Mustang, it seems, is equipped with a lower gear than the Imports and Chevrolets featured in this video, on this night. It grabs the hole shot in most of these roll racing bouts but comes up short towards the Read More

Honda S2000 Street Hammer

October 17th, 2016

By: Evan Margolis Here’s a sight that’s just about as rare as hen’s teeth (of course you know, hens don’t have any teeth). It is a Honda S2000 sports coupe with a souped up Toyota engine under the bonnet. This hybrid import is equipped to handle the street machines of Texas (a little town down in Mexico), despite having a manual transmission. As stated, the S2000 is running a Toyota power train, including a 2JZ in-line 6-cylinder (built bottom end) engine with a giant turbocharger. The combo is good for about 1,100hp. Things get interesting when two similarly equipped Supra Read More

WANNAGOFAST Georgia Half-Mile Shootout

October 14th, 2016

Howdy racing fans and welcome to Heaven’s Landing in Clayton, Georgia for the wannaGOFAST Georgia 1/2-Mile Shootout. On hand are some of the baddest street cars on the planet; ready to lock horns in head-to-head 1/2-mile dig racing action to top speed. Over 3,000 spectators and 135 competitors came out to give it all they had in what proved to be a monumental undertaking. On Saturday, the top speed of the day was 218.77 mph. On Sunday, Sal Patel posted a new track and World Rear-Wheel Drive record of 224.55 mph in his beast of a Dodge Viper. Check it Read More

Street Stampede – Chevy S10 vs Toyota Supra

October 13th, 2016

What do a mid-size Chevy SUV and a compact Toyota sports coupe have in common? Not much unless you’re talking about the massive amount of forced air induction found under the hoods of these two street brawlers. The Supra is a 1995 model with a Real Street built 3.0-liter engine (Manley parts). It has a Hypertune Racing intake manifold with a 90-millimeter throttle body, 2200cc Siemens injectors, and a PHR Triple Walbro fuel pump setup. A Precision GT 42 7675 turbocharger force feeds the engine copious amounts of air and everything is controlled using an AEM V2 controller. A PHR Read More
