Taking it to the Streets – TX2K17

March 22nd, 2017

So, this is what happens when a few thousand of the baddest street cars on the planet show up for the premier street racing event in the U.S. and – you guessed it – take it to the streets! There is something in this video for everyone. There are small cars, big cars, coupes and sedans, imports (from every corner of the globe) and domestics, naturally aspirated cars, turbocharged cars, blown cars, nitrous injected cars – there are even electric cars, SUVs, and pickups. If you are into roll racing on the street, this clip is for you. This production Read More

TX2K17 – GT-R Elite Ready to Roll

March 17th, 2017

With TX2K17 all set to begin, the racing world stands in anticipation to see if 2017 is the year of a true 6-second street car. Firms like AMS, ETS, and T1 Race Development are all fan favorites and all are capable of achieving the coveted 6-second ET with their cutting edge Nissan GT-R monsters. Nevertheless, there are hundreds of other competitors who have been working just as hard with their Lamborghinis, Porsches, Chevrolets, and Dodges. Anyone has a chance to be King of the Streets and it ain’t over until it’s over. Were it left up to me, I would Read More

Street Battle – Dodge Viper vs. Porsche 911

March 16th, 2017

Hello drag racing fans and speed enthusiasts of every variety and welcome to an epic contest between pure performance and overwhelming finesse. This competition transcends the long-time rivalry between imported and domestic vehicles and steps over into a realm where handcrafted elegance meets homespun horsepower. Before I get any deeper into the cars, this contest is taking place on a sunny stretch of highway south of the border. The action is of the roll racing variety. There are multiple passes and multiple camera angles. As you have probably deduced by now, the beast part of this equation is a 2016 Read More

Blown Mafia

February 8th, 2017

It seems that everywhere I go, racers are partial to one of the big three power-adders. Some like turbochargers, others love superchargers, and some are loyal to nitrous injection systems. That got me to thinking: why can’t a guy have a combination of two or even all three? It seems that I am not the only sicko following this train of thought. Bradley Gray, owner of Blown Mafia, is in the habit of stacking power-adders and covering them in chrome. All these vehicles run and drive but (the bad news is that) Bradley is not into racing them. He likes Read More

Nurburg ’Ring-King’ Needs Our Help

January 23rd, 2017

This call goes out to all racing enthusiasts and lovers of high performance automobiles. There’s a bully of a race car on the track in Nurburg, Germany and it has a sticker price of $1-million. The legendary 12.9-mile track, called Nurburgring, has been the star of racing events, movies, and video games. I think I have personally raced more than a million laps on the ‘Green Death’ (on Gran Turismo). Now it’s time to knuckle up and help Viper Nation knock off this bully and retake the record at Nurburgring in April 2017. In 2011, the Dodge Viper ACR claimed Read More

Street Beast Shootout – 1400WHP Viper vs 1100WHP 240SX

January 5th, 2017

Mention the words “Viper”, “GT-R”, and “street racing” to me and you will have my undivided attention. This video has all of those things and a whole lot more. Let’s get this (roll racing) party started with a contest between a 1,400whp Dodge Viper and an 8-second Nissan GT-R. The Gen V Viper and the Nisan GT-R are two of the baddest production vehicles to ever roll off an assembly line. Obviously the Viper in the video has undergone some extensive modifications; including a turbo setup. The Snake handles Godzilla easily and moves on to the next victim. You may Read More

Nth Moto Viper Posts New Quarter-Mile World Record

November 23rd, 2016

Taking exotic, performance, and racing cars to the ninth-degree (and beyond) is the mantra of Nth Moto in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This Gen V Dodge Viper is the evidence of their passion. On November 18, 2016, this Snake became the first of its species to dip into the eights in the quarter-mile; posting a single pass of 8.4-seconds @ 171 mph. Of course, that also makes this particular Viper the quickest of its kind in the 1320. In factory trim the Dodge Viper packs quite a wallop with an odd-firing, naturally aspirated, 8.4-liter, V10 engine capable of producing 640hp and 600 Read More

71-Year Old Takes Title at Texas Invitational

October 26th, 2016

They say that racing is a young man’s game and I must say that it has proven true over time. Nevertheless, “they” have never met King of the Streets veteran, 71-year old Bob Helms. You see, the thing is that nobody ever told Bob that he needed to move over for a younger butt to occupy the seat of his Underground Racing (UR) built Lamborghini and (I gotta’ believe) that if “they” did, Bob would tell them where to go. Bob has been racing King of the Streets events since 2011, without a win, so I absolutely love the fact Read More

Dodge Viper ACR Takes on Europe

October 19th, 2016

Give me a minute race car enthusiasts; I am having a belly laugh at this British gentleman commentator. His accent tickles my ears and he just said that the Dodge Viper ACR may not be as “dynamically brilliant as some of the cars that come out of Germany” – what a hoot. The latest and greatest (and probably the last) Dodge Viper is purely and simply a race car, designed for speed no matter what the purpose. There may be a few very expensive rides (produced in Germany) that can stand toe-to-toe with this Viper but give me that good 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
