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






World’s Fastest GTO

November 2nd, 2016




Alright, drag racing fans, so that this doesn’t get confusing I’m going to go ahead and tell you that there is not a Chevy Nova featured in this video. However, the guy that owns the feature car (Joe Albrecht), which is billed as the world’s fastest screw-blown 2006 Pontiac GTO, is known as NovaJoe. Who’d a thunk it? The 1/8-mile drag racing action is coming at you from NO MERCY 7 at the South Georgia Motorsports Park in picturesque Claxton, Georgia. NovaJoe is running in the radial tire class. The 1/8-mile world record that is broken is for a radial Read More






Buy It Now – 840HP 2016 Pontiac Trans Am Bandit Edition

November 1st, 2016




The movies that we grow up with leave us with some very special memories. Good or bad, these same memories often become engrained into our personalities and make us the people that we are as adults. In all honesty – I love street racing and I love the adrenaline rush that comes with it being frowned upon by members of our law enforcement community. Is that because I watched the movie Smokey and the Bandit, with Florida raised actor Burt Reynolds, as a teenager? Maybe it is and maybe it isn’t. Only my hairdresser and I know for sure. One Read More






Street Sleeper 8-Second Sedan

October 28th, 2016




Seldom do I see an 8-second car that totes the front halfway down the track. It’s even rarer when that car is a sedan (of any type). Well, that’s exactly what you can expect to see in this video. This is no one-hit-wonder either; this bad bowtie laid down consistent 8-second passes @ around 160 mph, while navigating the 1,100 road trip that is Drag Week- with the wife and kids in the back seat – without a hitch.     This 1967 Chevrolet Malibu “Crew Cab” (affectionately known as “Honk if Parts Fall Off”) is sporting a 414 cubic-inch small block Read More






1200HP Scion Dyno and Street

October 26th, 2016




This video takes us on a walk through, a dyno test, and a spirited street run in a Scion FRS. With its real-wheel drive platform and relatively light gross vehicle weight (3,500 to 3,700-pounds), the FRS is the perfect starting point for any street or strip project. This car has also got a great set of lines and an aggressive stance that caught my attention from its inception. Theoretically, one could jerk out the 200hp factory mill and fill this engine bay up with an LS V8 and the transmission that goes with it, with very little fabrication. You’d still 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






Coyote Terrorizes Texas Streets

October 26th, 2016




Before y’all go jumping in my crap about this very catchy title, several points are accurate. There is a Coyote 5.0-liter engine in the Mustang (with two-turbochargers) and this hot handful of street racing is coming to you from the streets of Texas, Mexico. The Coyote, on the other hand, is far less than dominant in most of these contests. The Mustang, it seems, is equipped with a lower gear than the Imports and Chevrolets featured in this video, on this night. It grabs the hole shot in most of these roll racing bouts but comes up short towards the Read More

World Record Set by Tesla Model S P100D for the Quickest Stock 4 Door Car

October 23rd, 2016




While we took delivery of the Tesla Model S P100D a few weeks ago the South Florida daily rainstorms have been thwarting our attempts to run the car down the 1/4 mile.  Finally the weather is changing and with the first “cold” front coming through and by “cold” front we mean a few hours of temps in the 70’s, we were able to get some 1/4 mile runs in at Palm Beach International Raceway. Electric car drag racing has come a long way since we started drag racing our P85 about 3 years ago, not only have the 1/4 miles times dropped astoundingly from Read More
