Big Three Battle on the Street

August 18th, 2016

Here’s a battle between Chevrolet, Dodge, and Ford (respectfully in alphabetical order), that takes place on the streets of an abandoned Mexican town. All three cars have manual transmissions and all three are bone stock. The racing is of the roll variety and the GoPro equipment is plentiful. That makes for some great looks at these amazing cars. The bright yellow coupe is the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. This is the Chevy flagship and it comes with a 6.2-liter supercharged and direct fuel injected V8 engine (dry sump oiling system) mated to a 7-speed Active Rev Matching manual transmission.

Nitrous Porsche 911 Turbo S Makes 9-Second Pass @ 143 MPH

April 1st, 2016

The 2015 Porsche 911 Turbo S has been described as an earthbound jet. With 540hp on tap and the capacity to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3-seconds, the Turbo S is quite impressive in factory trim. Add a 150hp nitrous kit with a water/methanol injection system and you have a beast of a street sleeper capable of consistent 9-second (1/4-mile) passes. The mid-mounted, 3.8-liter twin turbocharged engine is controlled using a Cobb ECU with a custom fabricated air intake system and a high pressure fuel pump. This video shows the first stock Porsche 911 Turbo (with Read More

Colorado Cash Days – Insane Street Racing

August 12th, 2015

Fourteen of the baddest street machines in the West have gathered at an undisclosed location in the Colorado night. Each of these teams has plans to take someone else’s cash, eat their cookies, and claim bragging rights as king of the Colorado streets. All-wheel drive, front-wheel drive, and rear-wheel drive – old cars, new cars, and even trucks will do battle to see who can claim the number-one spot in the 2015 edition of Colorado Cash Days. The highlights of this feature video include a 800hp 1969 Camaro, a beautiful red Chevy Nova with a 400-cubic-inch engine and an 80mm Read More

Street Racing: Supercharged Mustang vs. SRT Viper T/A

June 30th, 2015

For as long as there have been muscle cars, Ford and Dodge have been battling on the street. Smaller, lighter, small block powered Mustangs going head to head against larger, more powerful Dodges with massive big block HEMI engines, are what made street racing what it is today. This video shows a 2015 Ford Mustang GT with a blown 5.0-liter V8. The supercharger is a 2.3-liter VMP Gen2. Fuel is delivered via a Lund Racing Tuner using Injector Dynamics ID1000 fuel injectors, a stock fuel pump, and a booster. American Racing Headers and exhaust removes spent gases and a McLeod racing Read More

C7 Z06 Vette vs. Lamborghini Huracan

June 10th, 2015

What is this? A humble Chevrolet that can hang in there with the legendary Italian supercar Lamborghini? It would seem to be the case in this video. This is a close one that takes place on an abandoned air-strip. The rear-wheel drive Z06 gets pretty “squirrely” during the warm-up pass, leading one to believe that it could have a problem against the all-wheel drive Huracan. Luckily this is a rolling race, so the hole shot is removed from the equation. The Chevy crosses the stripe first but the Lambo puts up a higher trap speed (151.4 mph to 150.4 mph). Read More

Woman Runs 10-Second 1/4-Mile Passes in Stock 2015 Corvette Z06

May 28th, 2015

A pretty blonde woman in a sports car can be a real head-turner. The “head-spinning” is compounded when the sports car is a 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. This video, recorded at Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison, Illinois, yields several 10-second passes by the bone-stock Z06 at speeds in excess of 125 mph. The best recorded pass is 10.867-seconds @ 127.62 mph. If she gets “tree’d-up” just a little, she should be able to lay down some low 10-second efforts. The 2015 ‘Vette Z06 (this one is nicknamed “Superman” by the owner/operator) is a rear-wheel driven American supercar powered by a Read More

Koenigsegg One:1 Drag Racing @ 225 MPH

May 26th, 2015

The Koenigsegg One:1 (pronounced one-to-one) is referred to as a “mega-car” instead of a supercar. In this clip, from the VMAX 200 Hypermax event near London, England, you will observe it taking on supercars from all over the globe and winning at speeds of around 225 mph. While it is not the quickest from the line, its winning power-to-weight-ratio eventually overcomes most competitors near the quarter-mile mark. As the name implies, this mega-car is the only production car in existence to boast one megawatt of horsepower. A megawatt of power indicates that the One:1 produces one pferdestarke (.986 hp) per Read More

Hellcat e85 Conversion Increased Horsepower Reduced Emissions

April 22nd, 2015

Everyone knows that the 2015 Dodge Hellcat is built for speed and performance with a factory horsepower rating of 707 (at the crankshaft). What you may not know is this: Serious Horsepower (SHP) out of Houston, Texas, is in the business of making high-performance machines (such as the Hellcat) produce even more horsepower while running on cleaner e85 fuel. In this video, the factory Hellcat posted 672 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque (at the rear wheels) burning 93-octane fuel. After the car was expertly modified by SHP, using HP Tuners 2.25 Software, a Kenne Bell Boost-a-Pump, and upgraded fuel Read More
