1800HP Viper ACR – Half-Mile Assassin

June 5th, 2018

The name Calvo Motorsports has become synonymous with record-shattering Dodge Viper coupes that can also be easily driven on the street. We are talking about cars that still have all the luxurious trappings of a luxury sports car and the capacity to turn consistent 200+mph standing half-miles. This slithering Mopar makes me first think of an assassin because of its ‘murdered-out’ paint scheme. The flat black color seems to belie a predatory stance that is not at all deceiving. You see, this Viper is purpose built to stalk, intimidate, and pick off the competition in the standing half-mile and quarter-mile 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

TT Dodge Viper Tames Streets

March 30th, 2018

By: Harley Magden This video treats us to a group of savage street beasts built by Nth Moto (Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA), as they are unleashed on the streets (of Mexico). If you thought you had seen it all; this clip will ratchet your eyes open just a little bit farther. Forget about the 6-second GT-Rs and the 2500hp Lambos, the leader of this pack of snakes is a twin turbocharged Dodge Viper ACR. From the factory, it is one of the most capable track cars on earth. In its current state of modification, it is outright scary. The engine and Read More

TX2K18 – 220+MPH Quarter-Mile Rolls

March 15th, 2018

It’s that time of year again, racing fans! When the best of the best (roll and drag) racers in the land converge upon the Royal Purple Raceway in Houston, Texas for TX2K. Even though it’s only day one, the action is already hot and heavy in the quarter-mile roll racing category. Some big time Nissan GT-Rs, Lamborghini Huracans, Audi R8s, and Dodge Vipers have shown up and they are looking to show out on this heavily prepped stretch of hot, flat pavement. That’s right – lots of rubber has been applied to the track and the talking heads are squawking Read More

California Dreamin’ – Street Rolls

March 9th, 2018

It’s back to the left coast again for a healthy dose of beautiful sunshine, sea air, and sand in our flip flops – er, no – what we seek is open interstate, gasoline fumes, and hot floorboards. That’s exactly what we got from this outstanding group of street (roll) racers, south of the border. The action kicks off when the sun goes down with an all-wheel drive Honda CR-V that has been outfitted with a turbocharger. It has a 2.0-liter V-TEC engine and has undergone some basic weight reduction. There’s a twin turbo Dodge Viper running E85. A pair of Read More

Import vs. Domestic – Street Hits

March 2nd, 2018

Typical nightlife, somewhere south of the border. The backdrop: the deserted interstate of a big city. The players: Some of the most elite roll racing hooligans and renegades in North America. After the posturing and other pre race antics are completed, it’s time to get at the real stars of the show – the cars (and truck). First up is a 1,300hp Nissan GT-R. It has been treated to a Boost Logic 1300X Package and it moves like lightning strikes (hard and fast). In strict contrast, there’s a Firebird Formula with a built 6.0-liter V8, LS3 cylinder heads, and an Read More

NA Dodge Viper is CRAZY Fast

January 30th, 2018

I cannot lie to my fellow racing enthusiasts; I love me some power adders. Turbochargers, superchargers, and nitrous all make my heart go pitter-pat. It’s just so incredibly easy to add one of these methods to a ho-hum engine and turn it into a beast. Nevertheless, sometimes you see a naturally aspirated (NA) car that is so stinking quick that it makes you sit up and take notice. This feat is typically accomplished with massive cubic inches. Such is the case with our feature car in this clip. The car is easily recognizable as the Dodge Viper. Most Vipers are Read More
