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

Ultimate Exotic Car Showdown

October 3rd, 2016

This could be billed as the most complete showdown of supercars ever compiled – with a few exceptions. The Bugatti entry is noticeably absent, there’s no Nissan GT-R, the Corvette Z06 was overlooked, the Dodge Viper ACR is nowhere to be seen, and what about Tesla? One more honorable mention might be the Koenigsegg Agera but that’s probably advancing into a different realm of automobiles. Nevertheless, this list is quite impressive and the video will leave any car enthusiast feeling as if they need to climb into the cockpit. The backdrop is a sunny RAF airstrip somewhere in the United Kingdom. The Read More

Porsche 918 Spyder vs Dodge Viper ACR vs McLaren P1

September 1st, 2016

This video saga involves three vastly different exotic cars, on the same tires, on the same track, and with the same driver. No, it’s certainly not drag racing, but it is an extremely even test of some of today’s most outstanding automobiles. The cars are the Porsche 918 Spyder. It is a hybrid high-performance vehicle that features a mid-mounted, 90-degree V, 4.6-liter engine, with a flat plane crankshaft, and two-electric motors making 887hp and 944 lb-ft. of torque. That’s pretty impressive but the sticker price is downright shocking at a cool starting point of $847,975. The Dodge Viper ACR represents Read More

Nitrous vs. Turbo – Viper vs. Mustang

August 26th, 2016

This black beauty of a Fox Body Mustang is making 1,100whp with a 363 cubic-inch aluminum Dart Racing engine, high performance cylinder heads, and a massive 83-millimeter turbocharger. It’s putting those ponies to the ground with a built automatic racing transmission. After spending a day at the track, and posting an 8.64-second ET at 159.19 mph, the pony car takes to the streets looking for some action. If you are looking for action, chances are that you will find some. This time it comes in the form of a burnt orange Viper SRT. The Dodge Viper SRT is producing 972whp. Read More
