Carolina Street Rolls

May 15th, 2018

Hello race fans and welcome to one of the friendliest places on earth. I love to visit the beautiful mountains and beaches of the Tar Heel State. This is one of my favorites because the people are so accommodating and the scenery is beyond belief. Enough if that. Let’s talk street racing on the freeway. That’s when you build a car to accelerate as hard as possible between 40 mph and infinity. After that, you grab your sweetheart and hit the interstate in the wee hours of the morning for some action. Roll racers usually travel in packs with no Read More

Nissan 370Z Nismo vs. Subaru WRX STI – Track Test

May 12th, 2018

One is all-wheel drive. One has a few more horsepower. One is turbocharged and the other is naturally aspirated. Both are a beautiful hue of red but only one can be the winner in this comprehensive contest that includes a drag race, some practical driving, and even some pretty tight turns. The STI is of course, a sedan, It uses a smaller (2.5-liter I4) engine and a turbocharger to make its 305hp. It is both intercooled and port fuel injected. The Subaru is the all-wheel drive vehicle and it features a variety of drive modes with three on-board differentials. It Read More

Now, what we have here is a group of fun loving car enthusiasts taking to the highways of Mexico for some 40 and 50 mph roll racing. Yeah, I hear all you drag racers out there (and I do love my dig racing) but don’t knock it until you’ve tried it. No need to close down the road and no flagman required; these races start with the third drop of an arm extended from a window opening. The onboard cameraman and all the GoPro units catch all the action that is fast and furious – to say the least. Tonight’s Read More

Beware of Snakes – 200 MPH Viper ACR

May 12th, 2018

Running in the rear-wheel drive class, this Gen V Dodge Viper ACR is a fresh build with factory aerodynamics, air conditioning, power steering, and 19-inch wheels. This is literally a street car that can manage 200 mph in less than a half-mile – from a standing stop. Like the body, the engine is stock except for cylinder sleeves. Sleeved cylinders allow this huge 8.4-liter V10 engine to withstand the added rigor of a pair of turbochargers (Calvo Motorsports kit). Horsepower to the rear wheels is dyno-documented at 1,750. Today this nasty serpent will be taking on the closed course at Read More

Texas Street Rolls

May 9th, 2018

They say that everything is bigger in Texas. This may be an exaggerated statement but Texas street racers certainly do it as big as anybody in the land. They just do it south of the border. This clip features a diverse blend of imported and domestic vehicles that are purpose built for roll racing. These guys (and girls) roll onto the interstate and engage in a pure contest of speed that begins at 60 mph. The camera car is a 1,000+hp Nissan GT-R.
