Tesla Model X P90D Ludicrous vs Ferrari 458 Italia

November 16th, 2016




We have some great racing footage from the StreetCarDrags.com event last weekend with a Tesla Model X P90D Ludicrous racing heads up against a Ferrari 458 Italia.  While the instant torque and all wheel drive of the Model X catapults it off the line ahead of the Ferrari 458, the Italian supercar makes up some serious ground on it’s way trying to catch the Tesla before the end of the 1/4 mile. It’s a close one with the winner being determined by a great reaction time by the driver of the Model X (ToTheFloor), take a look at the racing Read More






Import vs Domestic World Cup – 2400HP Supra

November 16th, 2016




Greetings race fans and welcome to Maryland for the Haltech Import vs. Domestic World Cup. Today we are in for a treat as domestic and import dragsters battle it out for bragging rights and big bucks in single elimination, head-to-head, drag racing action. The feature car of this video is owned by Accelerated Performance. This is a firm which has chosen to remain loyal to their import creed even while those around them beef up their imports with bigger LS based engines. This methanol fueled 1994 Supra is cutting lights and rolling through the 1320 in lickety-split fashion with an Read More






Texas Grim Reaper at Outlaw Armageddon

November 16th, 2016




At an event called Outlaw Armageddon, one might think that a car named the Texas Grim Reaper would have the home track advantage. Well, advantage or not, one look at this murderer’s row of a field and I can tell that making it through the first round – let alone through the final round – is going to be a major undertaking. Regardless of the competition, Steve Wiley and his Texas Grim Reaper team didn’t show up at Thunder Valley Raceway Park (in Noble, Oklahoma) to play tidily-winks. They are only interested in marbles – all the marbles that is – Read More






Five-Second Twin Turbo Fox Body

November 13th, 2016




It’s raining fives! You don’t want to miss this video depiction of the Fiscus/Klugger TT Mustang becoming the first radial tire equipped car to dip into 5-second territory (5.92-seconds @ 249 mph) in the 1/4-mile. As if that wasn’t good enough, the Fiscus/Klugger Team continued to rain down 5-second passes (in the 240+ mph range) throughout the weekend on the way to stealing the show and taking home the $20,000 in prize money at the Haltech World Cup Finals. This Fox Body Mustang weighs in at a svelte 3,100-pounds and is well heeled with a pair of Precision 94-millimeter turbochargers Read More






Crazy Twin Turbo LS Powered Lexus IS300

November 10th, 2016




Like most drag racing fans, the prospect of a big engine in a really small and lightweight car is intriguing to me. It all began for me way back when with a built (four-bolt mains of course) small block Chevy engine in a Chevrolet Vega, nicknamed “Cherry Bomb” because it exploded through the 1320. Unfortunately, those Vegas are getting pretty difficult to find at a reasonable price. The good news is that lightweight import shells are out there and they’re a dime a dozen. If you have some mechanical aptitude and a few fabrication (cutting and welding) skills, you can Read More






Mopar Madness

November 9th, 2016




When you hear the word “madness’ you may tend to associate it with insanity but in this instance, I want you to relate it to anger. Why? Because Mopar fanatics get staggering mad when they look between the fenders of this late model Dodge Challenger and find a big old Chevrolet engine producing the ponies. That’s right HEMI-heads; this 2-ton behemoth is propelled by a 427 cubic-inch LSX engine that is being force fed copious amounts of air by a Precision 106-millimeter turbocharger. Shifting duties are being handled by a TH400 automatic transmission. This car was running consistent 8-second 1/4-mile Read More






Gangster TT HEMI Vette Goes 3.79 at 212 MPH

November 8th, 2016




Welcome race fans! Help yourself to an eyeful of the Alepa C7 Corvette as it attempts to take flight using a dragstrip as a runway. Meet Daniel Pharris, driver of this 3,500hp beast, and come along as he campaigns this drastically modified Chevrolet during two weekends of 1/8-mile drag racing action; making regular passes in the 3.8-second range at well over 200 mph. I almost never see a car that consistently goes airborne while not only remaining competitive but qualifying near the top. That is exactly what onlookers were treated to during two separate (and I do mean separate) events; Read More






Blue Devil ZR1 Menacing the Streets

November 5th, 2016




I have said it before, and I’ll probably say it again, if you love fast cars then you’ll like this video and if you love Corvettes then you will love it. This particular Corvette is at the top of the food chain, as far a ‘Vettes go. It is the iconic ZR1 – also called the Blue Devil. The C6 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is well equipped from the factory with an LS9 6.2-liter supercharged V8 that makes 638hp and 595 lb.-ft. of torque. Top speed is an electronically controlled 205 mph. It also has a six-speed, race hardened, close ratio, Read More






Nitrous Showdown on the Texas Streets

November 4th, 2016




Yee Haw! There’s nothing like the smell of nitrous in the evening and these Texas (Mexico) streets are ripe with the stench of it! We’ve seen our fair share of roll racing from south of the border but this video is dedicated to some down and dirty dig racing. Some serious racers showed up, including BoostedGT from Street Outlaws and Black Jesus (Heysus) from the Motor City, to wreak havoc on these deserted streets. There is a huge crowd in attendance (lots of smack talking and flexing) to see these elite street racers duke it out in single elimination and Read More






Twin Turbo Monte Carlo is a Quarter-Mile Mauler

November 2nd, 2016




In my own humble opinion, the first generation Chevrolet Monte Carlo is about as visually appealing an automobile as any ever produced. Big men tend to prefer big cars (coupes only – for hot rodding) and that certainly holds true for me. The problem is that the larger cars weigh more and often have the power and torque of a hamster on a wheel. The 1970 Monte Carlo SS, after all, delivered only about 280hp to the rear wheels despite having a mammoth 7.4-liter engine with a four-barrel carburetor. Things only went down from there, horsepower wise, for 1971 and Read More
