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

Supercar Shootout – Palm Beach Raceway – Dig and Roll

January 12th, 2018

Greetings racing fans and welcome to Palm Beach Raceway in sunny Jupiter, Florida. While this gathering of exotic supercars could have well been conjured up on a gaming console, this is video evidence of an actual event that took place in the Sunshine State. On hand were some of the most popular high-performance sports cars on the planet. They got together to see which of them was the baddest all-around supercar. Some were modified and others were stock but every driver came into this event with a desire to prove their machine was superior to the rest. Up first are Read More

Toyota Supra vs, Ferrari 599 – Street Rolls

January 9th, 2018

Let’s join “Wild Willie The Toothless Tiger” on a rare chilly night in the Sunshine State (of Mexico).  On the agenda for the evening is a bit of roll racing on the interstate but first a tour of Induction Performance for a look at some of the baddest street cars on the planet. While Induction Performance specializes in Toyota (Supra), Lexus (Toyota), and Nissan (GT-R, 370ZX) modification, there are a wide variety of cars in house for repairs/maintenance. There are some Mustang GT500 and Viper owners who trust this shop to deliver dependable performance. They are not disappointed. Our feature Read More

NA Viper Incinerates the Interstate

October 9th, 2017

Who says you have to have a power adder to win on the street? Everybody has got them these days. Turbochargers, superchargers, and nitrous – some racers even stack them just for good measure. I love them (and run them myself) but are they a must have? What happens when a good old boy decides to go with a whole mountain of naturally aspirated (NA) cubic inches in a high performance street beast? In this case, they call it SneakySnake. It’s an unassuming Dodge Viper (as unassuming as a Viper can be) and it is out to prove a point Read More

Epic Hypercar Throwdown

September 9th, 2017

Warning: The sights and sounds captured in this eleven-minute video may cause feelings of false euphoria. Sports car enthusiasts may feel as though they have been transported to some sort of hypercar heaven. Watch at your own risk. As majestic as the background of this video appears, the most stunning elements are found in rolling stock. Nestled at the bottom of a beautiful mountain range, hundreds-of-millions of dollars worth of automobiles have gathered on a deserted airstrip. These are not trailer queens with no mileage on the odometer; these cars are meant to be driven – and driven hard. Drag Read More

1200HP Corvette – Godzilla Killa

May 10th, 2017

One doesn’t often see a modest Chevrolet Corvette walking away with the crown (Sport Class) in a roll racing event the size of TX2K17. It is even more unexpected to see such an occurrence when there are cars like the Nissan GT-R (Godzilla), Lamborghini Huracan, and the mighty Dodge Viper on hand. Add the fact that this C5 Vette is equipped with a manual transmission and you have a real phenomenon. This 2-seater is powered by a 408 cubic-inch GM small block and a massive turbocharger. The owner/operator (Ty) states that the car is capable of producing 1,200(ish)hp. Round 1 Read More

Stock Engine Viper World Record Half-Mile

April 14th, 2017

Those speed demons at Calvo Motorsports have done it again! These guys continue to push the limitations of top speed as they pertain to factory stock engines. If you are going to build a legacy of speed with stock hardware, what better place to start than the premier (arguably) high-performance coupe produced in the U.S. The Viper comes off the assembly line with a massive 8.0-liter V10 engine that is capable of producing more than 600hp. I am not absolutely sure about the rules for this particular class but I did hear the owner/driver talking about bolt-ons and a turbocharger. Read More
