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

929WHP – Vengeance Camaro ZL1 Dyno

October 31st, 2018

Wait a second – Whipple? Isn’t that the grocer who was always telling us not to squeeze the Charmin? Yep, but it’s also the brand of supercharger that’s helping this radically modified Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 to manufacture thunderous amounts of horsepower and torque. Right off the assembly line, the Camaro ZL1 is a force of nature. It has a 6.2-liter supercharged engine that churns out 650hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. Not too shabby. Enter Jason Levia and Vengeance Racing (Cumming, Georgia). When the factory get-up-and-go just made Jason want more; he handed the ZL1 over to Vengeance Racing for Read More

Turbo Silverado Gaps Camaro ZL1

October 29th, 2018

Greetings drag racing fans! Welcome to Street Car Takeover from the Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, Georgia. A fast-moving pickup truck has captured our attention and it is gapping Camaros, old and new. As a matter of fact, the way this Silverado is coming out of the hole, it’s going to be hard for any street machine to drive around him. The feature vehicle for this clip is a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with a 5.3-liter engine (stock bottom end) and a VTR 83-milimeter turbocharger. It also has a Holley intake manifold and it is running E85 fuel. The truck is Read More

Pavement Pounding Ohio Cash Days

July 28th, 2018

When it comes to street racing, it doesn’t get any more real than this. Fifteen of the baddest street racers in the midwest have gathered on this narrow strip of blacktop to determine who will be the top dog. With $3,300 on the line, these racers know the rules. Cut the light prematurely and you lose. Cross the centerline and you lose. Avoid these two pitfalls and cross the finish line first – you win and advance to the next round. Repeat that seven-times and take home the cash and the bragging rights. Simple, huh? We’ll see. First round call Read More

Mustang Boss 302 vs. Vette Z06 – Street Hits

June 26th, 2018

What’s better than street racing on the wide open interstates (of Mexico)? Why, roll racing 3-wide down the interstate into the cool night air of course. Theses competitive drivers know how to get down where the rubber meets the road. Their cars have been purpose-built for roll racing and the pilots are ready to put it all on the line. All that’s left is to fuel up and roll out. Our first contest is a triple play between a 620hp Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, a 635hp Cadillac CTS-V sedan, and a 570hp turbocharged Pontiac Trans Am. ZL1 FTW! Next, we have Read More

Midwest Street Digs

May 17th, 2018

Like many of you, I love virtually all kinds of racing. With that said, there is a special place in my heart for dig racing on the streets (of Mexico, naturally). This video treats us to a night of street digs featuring some of the baddest cars in the midwest. Whether you are a turbo guy, a nitrous dude, a naturally aspirated gal, or a supercharger man; there is a lot to like about this clip. With the chips drawn and the competitors set to tow the line, we have the turbocharged Fox Body Mustang (LS powered) known as Beater Read More

Street Digs – ZL1 Camaro vs. Dodge Demon

May 9th, 2018

It seems like everything on four-wheels is lining up to take a run at the new  Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. This video documents what takes place when the daddy of the Camaro line gets his opportunity to ‘cast out’ the Demon in a dig race. This is a 2017 version of the mighty ZL1 Camaro. This car has been treated to the full regimen of aftermarket bolt-ons. In factory trim, the ZL1 packs quite a punch. It starts with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that is capable of making 650hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. Factory features like an all aluminum Read More

Coffeyville Street Drags – No Prep Falcon

May 8th, 2018

Welcome drag racing fans to the Coffeyville Street Drags in Coffeyville, Kansas. Competing in the Outlaw Class, our feature car is a vintage Ford Falcon with a cool wrap. Oh, wait a minute – my finger just fell into a rust hole – this ain’t a wrap. This body is actually rusty with a patina that belies its many decades behind the blue oval. So, the Ford Falcon belongs to Paul Witty who built this bad ride in his garage. He dragged it right out of a field and breathed new life into her by installing a 521 cubic-inch big Read More

Superbrawl of Street Racing – GT-R vs. Roush Panda

April 13th, 2018

This is the granddaddy of all roll racing videos. If you enjoy taking to the interstate (Mexico) with a whole herd of elite level street racers; you’ll love this video. There are so many street beasts in this clip that they had to hit the streets in groups. After a brief driver’s meeting the first pack went out.   The initial wave included a black Gen VI Shelby GT500 Mustang. It is running a professionally built engine with high performance cylinder heads and a camshaft upgrade, a Kenne Belle 3.2-liter supercharger, and E85 fuel. The combo is good for 800+hp. Read More

9-Second Camaro – Dual Power Adders

March 23rd, 2018

So, what’s a racer to do about that pesky turbo (supercharger) lag? After all, few things are more irritating than dropping the hammer and coming out of the hole like a slug; especially when you have sunk a ton of dough in a turbo or supercharger. There are ways to squash that lag and turn your sled into a rocket. If you are a turbo guy (or girl), you can add a second smaller (lower RPM) turbo. That’ll kick your tail out of the hole like scalded dog but it is pricey and can propose space challenges. A more efficient Read More
