March 1st, 2019

Well, it’s flooding down in Texas – flooding high-end roll racers, that is. Almost time for TX2K19 and it seems that the serious competitors are in town early. The track isn’t available at this hour, but these guys won’t let that stop them. They’re on a mission for street hits so they jump across the southern border into Mexico. Take a gander. In the first flight, the camera car is a 780whp Supra. The first race is between a 900whp ZR1 Corvette and a 1,000whp (black) Supra. Corvette takes the hit and wins it. Next up is a 915whp Corvette Read More

Vengeance is Mine Saith… Ned – 1800hp Viper

August 30th, 2018

Vengeance Racing has developed a hard-built reputation as premier Corvette builders for their ability to wring power from the LSx platform. You can understand how an email from a Viper owner resulted in a request denied. He was courteously referred to one of the many Viper shops around the land. After more emails and repeated refusals, Viper owner Ned – not being a man who takes no for an answer – took a trip to Georgia to visit Vengeance Racing and plead his case to the powers that be. Being reasonable men, the guys at Vengeance brought the strange creation Read More

1000HP LS Swapped RX8 – Street Rolls

August 16th, 2018

This is my kind of street racer. I love a small car with a big old engine and a power-adder (or two). Well, they certainly don’t get much smaller than the Mazda RX8. In factory trim, it weighs in at a scant 2,800-pounds; is 175-inches long, 70-inches wide, and 60-inches tall. Now, outfitted with a 6.0-liter GM V8 engine and a TH400 GM transmission, the little Mazda tips the scales a bit heavier but makes it up in horse power and acceleration. Oh, best not forget – a pair of turbochargers, too. Let’s get down to Old Mexico and get Read More

Rollin’ Coal – 1200HP Chevy Duramax Diesel

July 23rd, 2018

This is a hillbilly Cadillac with  a reputation for taming supercars on the street. With 1,200hp and 2,000+ lb.-ft. of torque, many unsuspecting sports car owners have fallen into the trap set by this behemoth of a truck. Today, several more will taste the soot and feel the shame. The feature vehicle is a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado LB7 Duramax. The engine is an L&L Racing product with extra reinforcement around the main bearings. Carrillo connecting rods, SoCal Diesel pistons and fuel injectors help to beef up durability as well. The turbochargers are a setup in a compound configuration with an Read More

World Record Rear-Wheel Drive Viper

June 27th, 2018

Sal and the Viper could be the title of a best-selling children’s book but today it’s a story about a car enthusiast, his car enthusiast son, and the beast of a Dodge Viper that they have been developing for about a decade. Suddenly and unexpectedly, the commitment of this father and son will pay off at the Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack. You see, Sal Patel has never thought of himself as much of a half-mile racer. Furthermore, he feels like his car is much better suited for the quarter-mile and eighth-mile. Sal and crew have had a degree of success Read More

Heads Up No Prep – Turbo Acura TL

June 14th, 2018

One of the great things about racing cars is that each competitor has the ability to express themselves through their vehicle. What might seem the farthest from a viable racing solution to most may be a vision in horsepower to another. Such could be said of this pretty blue Acura sedan. Did it begin life as a performance or sports car? Most certainly not. However, it did roll off the assembly line with a Honda VTEC 3.2-liter V6 engine. Can it handle turbocharged horsepower over extended periods of time? Probably not; so car owner Alden built the engine and sleeved Read More
