Daily Driver Street Digs for Dollars

January 28th, 2018

Let’s roll out with the Daily Driver Street Racing Club for some double-elimination action on the rural routes of Mexico. These guys (and girls) are primed and ready to break off an eighth-mile piece of black top in route to claiming the cash prize and bragging rights as the quickest daily driver around. The first thing that I notice are some top tier daily driver/street racing machines. There is a Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 with its 505hp supercharged V8 and several Corvette entries. There’s  an SRT Dodge Challenger with a big old 6.4-liter HEMI engine making 485hp from the factory. There Read More

8-Second TT Classic Camaro

January 12th, 2018

Greetings drag racing fans and aficionados. Welcome to Street Car Takeover Tucson. The object of our focus and affection today is a menacing 1968 Chevrolet Camaro. It possesses that perfect combination of a vintage appearance with a very modern level of performance. It simply has everything it takes to make it look like a muscle car but run like a rocket ship. The body is all steel and it is pristine (except for a ton of rubber sprayed on the rear quarters). The stance is unique in this day of cars with a low center of gravity. It almost has Read More

Fox Body Grudge Race – Beater Bomb vs. Torch 2.0

January 11th, 2018

This video treats us to a look at a bad little Fox Body Mustang that is known as the Torch 2.o. Although exact equipment specifications are kept close to the vest, it has been determined that the nitrous burning engine in this Mustang is a small block LS (Chevy) based V8. How about them apples? Footage from several dragstrips and multiple events (Small Tire Class) portrays the Torch 2.0 reeking havoc on the competition. The first stop is at the Ice Cream Cruise and the first victim is a classic Ford Falcon. After a small catfish out of the hole, Read More

No Prep Camaro – Street and Strip Hits

January 11th, 2018

It isn’t every day that you see a video which gives you (class dominating) NO PREP race footage of a vehicle then yields access to the passenger seat of the same vehicle for some white knuckle street hits. Ryan Miller has managed to build himself one of the nastiest two-step turbo cars that you will ever see. Our camera guy caught Ryan and his Gen IV Camaro at the I-29 Dragway during The Shop Inc NO PREP Series. He was kicking tail and taking names in the Drag Radial Class and making it look easy. Aside from a few double-wheelies, Read More

Callaway SC750 Camaro – Track Test

January 9th, 2018

The 2018 Chevrolet Camaro is offered in many versions. From the comfortably priced Camaro 1LS (with its turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder) to the mighty Camaro ZL1 (with its supercharged V8); there is a Camaro that fits the bill of virtually every sports car enthusiast. The Camaro featured in this video is a bit more than stock and leans in the direction of a Shelby creation or a Yenko model. The firm, known as Callaway Cars, has been around since 1977. They are known for Corvette modifications but have also drifted into the Camaro market (as you can see). Whatever the car, Read More

POV Street Racing – Roll and Dig

January 4th, 2018

This video is very rare. It is so skillfully produced that you get a huge dose of street racing (roll racing and dig racing) with a personal point-of-view and a Hollywood level of quality. These camera angles and locations are so realistic that you can almost smell the exhaust and feel the g-force. I doesn’t take long to realize that this is a video focused on a red Camaro (and the Camaro in general). While it is loaded with bodacious bowties that stretch the limitations of street legal transportation, there are also some pretty impressive Fords and even an import Read More

Corn Husker Dig Racing

December 29th, 2017

Those Midwestern farm boys (and girls) are at it again. They have parked the tractors and combines and thrown away the pitchforks. Now they are behind the wheels of some bad street racing iron and they have come together for a day of racing action. On hand are naturally aspirated cars, turbo cars, twin turbo cars, nitrous cars, and supercharged cars. There are plenty of Chevys and Fords; there is even a DSM and a crazy fast rotary powered Datsun (old Nissan). The one thing that all these racers have in common is their desire to take home all the Read More

10-Second Stock Camaro ZL1

December 8th, 2017

This clip documents a 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 making a quarter-mile pass of 10.943-seconds @ 128.275 mph. The venue is Mountain Park Dragway in Clay City, Kentucky and the temperature is approximately thirty-two-degrees. The car is bone stock and rolling on stock tires. Keep in mind that this Camaro is often referred to as the king of the performance coupes. It is the top of the current Camaro line and is the most capable Camaro ever produced. From the factory it is capable of producing 650hp @ 6,400 RPM and 650 lb.-ft. of torque @ 3,400 RPM. Top speed is Read More

Spoolio – 8-Second TT Camaro

November 23rd, 2017

This video treats us to a long weekend of speed from Arizona. Get ready for some high flying (almost) dyno action, electrifying quarter-mile passes, and a ride along for some bone jarring half-mile hits. Our feature ride for this well produced flick is a Gen IV Chevrolet Camaro Z28. It has been upgraded with a built 376 cubic-inch LS3 engine block and a set of LSA cylinder heads. Engine performance is amplified with a Huron twin turbocharger kit. Power is dyno certified at 1,050hp (21 psi of boost) on this day and the twin turbo V8 sounds amazing. The action Read More

Street Racing Spectacular – Import vs. Domestic

September 4th, 2017

There is literally something for every street racing enthusiast in this video! Of course, there are tons of fast cars in every size and shape – imports and domestics, turbo and nitrous, standard and automatic. There are dig and roll races (sometimes 3-wide). There’s even a wreck and a fight (sort of). The backdrop is beautiful (New) Mexico and its flat landscape. It’s perfect for street racing. There is a bodacious DSM (1990s Mitsubishi Eclipse or Eagle Talon) that is capable of 1,000hp – from a stock 2.0-liter engine with over 100K miles. You know that there were tons of Read More
