September 15th, 2017

This outstanding video documents a new world record by the most advanced supercar on the planet.

They plan to accomplish this monumental task with the 1,500hp (1,180 lb.-ft. of torque) Chiron.

This feat was accomplished in only 42-seconds. The Bugatti Chiron is Read More

There are a wide variety of cars on hand – from all over Read More

September 9th, 2017

Warning: The sights and sounds captured in this eleven-minute video may cause feelings of false euphoria. Sports car enthusiasts may feel as though they have been transported to some sort of hypercar heaven. Watch at your own risk.

These are not trailer queens with no mileage on the odometer; these cars are meant to be driven – and driven hard. Drag Read More

Street Racing Spectacular – Import vs. Domestic

September 4th, 2017

There is literally something for every street racing enthusiast in this video! Of course, there are tons of fast cars in every size and shape – imports and domestics, turbo and nitrous, standard and automatic. There are dig and roll races (sometimes 3-wide). There’s even a wreck and a fight (sort of). The backdrop is beautiful (New) Mexico and its flat landscape. It’s perfect for street racing. There is a bodacious DSM (1990s Mitsubishi Eclipse or Eagle Talon) that is capable of 1,000hp – from a stock 2.0-liter engine with over 100K miles. You know that there were tons of Read More

Turbo LS Nissan Hardbody – Street Racing

August 31st, 2017

This little Nissan pickup is a perfect example of how to build a street racer. You begin with a small and lightweight body. I would like for it to be rear-wheel drive (four-wheel drive is also nice but more difficult to find). It must be something common so that it will be economical (like this compact Nissan pickup). It doesn’t have to be pretty but it needs to be free of rust and without any major dents. Next, we need to shop for an engine. The Chevrolet 5.3-liter LS engine is plentiful and cheap. It is also more economical to Read More

Crazy Fast Inline 6-Cylinder Ford Mustang

August 30th, 2017

 If you are into unique race cars, you will love this one. I don’t know whether to call it crazy fast, crazy smooth, or just plain CRAZY! This car accelerates so fast and smooth that it is like something from another world. Well, it is sort of from another world, This Fox Body is based out of a beautiful place called Qatar. The innovative power plant is a Nissan TB48, 4.8-liter, inline 6-cylinder engine from a Nissan Patrol SUV (very popular vehicle in this part of the world). Add a 98-millimeter turbocharger with all the goodies, along with a custom Read More

Ohio Street Digs for Cash

August 30th, 2017

These cats in Ohio (Mexico) really know how to have a good time. You begin by finding an abandoned strip of industrial park pavement (3-lane if you can get it). Next, you invite a bunch of gear heads with fast cars and charge them a $100 buy-in on a winner-take-all pot. The rules are simple: It’s run-what-ya’-brung, single elimination, dig racing action. If you win – you move on to the next round. If you lose, you go back on the trailer. Competitors draw cards at the start of each round to determine pairings. Don’t jump (leave early) and don’t Read More

TX2K17 – Taking it to the Streets

August 29th, 2017

How do you kill some down-time when you are attending the TX2K17 event in Houston? Grab several hundred of your closest friends in fast cars (on bikes, too) and scamper across the border (into Mexico) for some street (roll) racing. Take a look! First up is a supercharged Honda S2000 in a roll race with a Nissan GT-R. The GT-R jumped out on him and never looked back. The S2000 lived to race another day. This time it’s against a Camaro with unknown modifications. The Honda wins this one – handily. Next, we have a pair of Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Read More
