Real Street Racing – South Georgia Cash Days

August 28th, 2018

Yep, this is South Georgia (Mexico) alright. The dragstrip is no wider than a pig trail. There are more pickups entered in the cash days than cars. There’s a PT Cruiser running a 350hp shot of nitrous and if Colonel Sanders stepped out of the bushes (which are very close to the pavement) with a bucket of chicken, no one would be surprised. Right off the trailer, we got a heavily modified Nissan 300z against a V8 Chevy S10 pickup. Both racers leave the line clean but the S10 drags the import for the win. Race two of round one; Read More

9-Second EVO – Dragstrip and AWD Dyno

August 26th, 2018

Ran across this crushing orange EVO 8 at the 2018 Diamond Star Motors (DSM) Shootout in Ohio. Kasey was understandably proud of this build and managed to put up low-nine-second passes all day with a best (ever) of 9.29-seconds @ 155 mph. Here’s the rundown on this awesome looking 2003 EVO: At the heart of this beast is a 2.3-liter 4G63 engine built by Buschur Racing with a Manley crankshaft and connecting rods (pistons are by JE). The cylinder head is a BZE (CNC) unit with a set of GSC Power Division S3 camshafts. An Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) turbo Read More

July Nights – Top 10 Street Hits

August 24th, 2018

Warning! Bowtie on bowtie violence visible in this media. Although every one of the big three U.S. automakers are represented, along with some quite impressive imports, there are multiple Chevy on Chevy affairs. You have been warned! Buckle up for some street rolls and digs from down Mexico way. A Camaro ZL1 with full bolt-ons and a camshaft upgrade versus a Corvette ZR1 with full bolt-ons (700hp) in numerous roll hits. Must be some camshaft. Camaro is too much for the ‘Vette. This is a row between a 580hp Nissan GT-R Nismo with full bolt-ons and a Mercedes-Benz AMG GTS. Read More

Corvette vs. Mustang – Street Hits

August 22nd, 2018

Like a pack of wild dogs these Corvettes are attacking a Mustang like he’s got peanut butter smeared all over his undercarriage. These things are crazy-fast and ripping through the streets of Old Mexico like a hot knife through butter. Come on and have a gander. You know it’s going to be a great night when your camera car is a (black) Corvette ZR1 with a camshaft and cylinder head upgrade. Oh, and don’t forget a Kong ported blower treatment with an ice water intercooler. Opening up these blowers is yielding some amazing gains in horsepower and torque. Climb in Read More

Turbo Fox Body – 7-Second Small Tire Monster

August 17th, 2018

Welcome drag racing fans to the Street Car Takeover, Denver. Some of the baddest drag racers in the U.S. have braved the high altitude and battled the mountains to come together in this contest of traction and power. Our feature car for this clip is a Fox Body Ford Mustang competing in the Street Car Class and the Small Tire Class. Under the hood is a 540 cubic-inch Big Block Chevy with ASR cylinder heads and a Precision PT118 turbocharger (118-millimeter).

1000HP LS Swapped RX8 – Street Rolls

August 16th, 2018

This is my kind of street racer. I love a small car with a big old engine and a power-adder (or two). Well, they certainly don’t get much smaller than the Mazda RX8. In factory trim, it weighs in at a scant 2,800-pounds; is 175-inches long, 70-inches wide, and 60-inches tall. Now, outfitted with a 6.0-liter GM V8 engine and a TH400 GM transmission, the little Mazda tips the scales a bit heavier but makes it up in horse power and acceleration. Oh, best not forget – a pair of turbochargers, too. Let’s get down to Old Mexico and get Read More

1000WHP Forza Hellcat Street Hits

August 14th, 2018

Forza Tuning and Performance in Clearwater, Florida is turning out some of the baddest Dodge Challenger Hellcat contenders on street or strip. The feature car in this video is an example of the magic that can happen when a high-performance tuning facility and a car owner think outside the box. Like most ultra-modern speed shops, Forza provides a diverse array of preconfigured performance packages for the Hellcat, Demon, and many other vehicles. Unlike other hot rod shops, Forza is glad to go the extra mile when really fast just ain’t fast enough. After maxing his Challenger Hellcat out with a Read More
