Fastest Cadillac in the West

November 30th, 2018

This video is an instructional effort to demonstrate making a street car fast. Big Chief at Midwest Street Cars has taken this car deep into the nines while maintaining luxurious comfort and daily driver functionality. Despite the ability to “tote the front” way down the track and post quarter-mile passes in the 9-second range at 150 mph, this Caddy maintains a full camera backup system, a deluxe audio system, air conditioning, navigation, and it’ll still go a 1.38-second 60-foot with the front wheels in the air. If you have a Cadillac CTS-V that you want to make faster, you might Read More

3-Wide Street Hits

November 7th, 2018

What do you figure all those high-powered racing machines do when the track closes and it’s time to head home? They take it to the streets (of Mexico) for some door-handle to door-handle roll racing. This is one such time and there’s an impressive field of competitors on hand, including: A Dodge Challenger (1,000HP) with a 434 cubic-inch engine and a 106-millimeter turbo. A Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 (860HP) with a Whipple 2.3-liter supercharger (upgrade) on 12 psi of boost and a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 (750HP) with an upper pulley upgrade, a high-performance camshaft, and high-performance exhaust. The Camaro and the Read More

POV Ride Along – 750HP Cadillac CTS-V

September 7th, 2018

Hello drag racing fans. Get in, buckle up, and hold on. You are on-board what is being billed as the ultimate grocery-getter. It is a stock-motor 2009 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan and (as you are about to see) it is mind-numbing from the passenger seat. Under the hood is a stock (supercharged) 6.2-liter V8 with a set of LSA cylinder heads and ARP fasteners. The Lingenfelter supercharger has undergone an extensive porting process and both supercharger drive pullies have been upgraded (oversized). The car has been enhanced with a full accoutrement of bolt-ons (including a 102-millimeter throttle body) and tuned by Read More

All-Motor LS3 Swapped RX7 – Street Hits

August 30th, 2018

Alright street racing enthusiasts; who remembers cramming big V8 engines between the fenders of a tiny Chevy Vega, Opel, or Mustang II? Those were the days. We could build a 5.7-liter Chevrolet engine (four-bolt mains) that could hang with anything on the street (roll and dig). The Vega, Opel, and Mustang II have all gone away. That leaves us with the heavier Camaro/Trans Am, Mustang, W-Body, and G-Body. Luckily, these days we have access to better power-adders – at unbelievable prices – than we could’ve ever imagined in those days. Nevertheless, it would be great if a blue-collar guy could Read More

Cash and Carry Street Racing – $5200 Prize

August 3rd, 2018

Take a look at this top shelf street racing (drags) video. This one reminds me of home, even though I know it is filmed down in Mexico. A large group of the baddest and boldest street racers in the continental U.S. has gathered for this auspicious occasion to burn up fuel, apply some rubber to the pavement, and see who can claim bragging rights as king of Cash Days. Everyone is here. So, without further ado – run your car, not your mouth – as the man says. With everyone’s money turned in and darkness falling on this narrow strip Read More

Cardiac Cadillac – Low 9-Second CTS-V

July 30th, 2018

Making the transition from a 9-second quarter-mile car to a legitimate 8-second car can be aggravating if not downright frustrating. The most intricate details must be considered and, if you are not careful, the process will dominate your thoughts and cloud your judgement. Then again – if it were easy – everyone would be doing it. Most people who get into the drag racing game choose a coupe as their vehicle. This guy has selected a sedan as his weapon of choice and not just any sedan but the luxurious flagship of the GM lineup. The CTS-V Sedan is well Read More

Dodge SRT Demon vs TT Camaro – Street Rolls

June 7th, 2018

Welcome to the long, hot summer racing fans and aficionados. The time is right for heating it up at the drag strip all weekend or chilling on the interstate (of Mexico, of course) for some high-powered roll racing. Tonight we will be taking it to the interstate and rolling out the thunder with one of the most interesting new cars to ever roll off the factory floor. The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is a supercharged race car that boasts the capacity to manufacture over 800hp. It’s also the first production car with the ability to “tote the front” coming Read More

Texas Street Rolls

May 9th, 2018

They say that everything is bigger in Texas. This may be an exaggerated statement but Texas street racers certainly do it as big as anybody in the land. They just do it south of the border. This clip features a diverse blend of imported and domestic vehicles that are purpose built for roll racing. These guys (and girls) roll onto the interstate and engage in a pure contest of speed that begins at 60 mph. The camera car is a 1,000+hp Nissan GT-R. In the first contest, it will do battle with a Cadillac CTS-V (nitrous equipped). The turbocharged import Read More

Tesla Mom Car is Track Monster

May 2nd, 2018

Careful that you don’t get spanked by a soccer mom in the quietest compact SUV (with gull-wing doors) that you could ever imagine. The Tesla X is now prowling the streets and it can be challenging to say the least. With all-wheel drive and total electric power, this little grocery-getter comes out of the hole like a bullet. Today, it will be taking on the world in closed track contests that include roll and dig races. Spoiler alert: This thing is deadly from the dig! First up is a motorcycle. It is the legendary 2012 Suzuki Hayabusa with full bolt-ons. Read More

MK3 Supra vs. Mustang and Vette – Street Hits

March 23rd, 2018

It is the holy grail of proud and loyal Toyota followers. It is the ghostly presence that slips quickly and quietly from the mist of a child’s (Toyota) dreams before they decide to become an import street racer. It’s the third generation MK3 Toyota Supra. The one in this video features a heavily modified Toyota 2JZ 3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder engine. The engine is built and topped with a Precision 6766 turbocharger. Tonight the mystical creature of Toyota lore will be taking on some worthy opponents. Let’s take a look and see how it fares. The first test for the Supra Read More
