Cali Street Digs – Compton Clash

January 11th, 2017

Greetings street racing fans and welcome to one of the most historic street racing locations on the planet. The small community of Compton, (Mexico) is known worldwide for its unique cultural dynamic. It has for decades been the inspiration for motion pictures and music but there is one strip of blacktop that is easily recognizable to street racers. This video comes to us from this exact site. I especially enjoyed the way the video producer referred to the posturing and trash talking that takes place before a street race as “race negotiations.” In the hood or out – a $1,600 Read More

NA Vette Crushes Half-Mile World Record

December 28th, 2016

Hello race fans and welcome to the WannaGoFast Texas 1/2-Mile Runway Shootout. Making this contest of top speed even more enjoyable for spectators this weekend is the presence of Eddie Blackwell’s 2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Eddie has come all the way from Huntsville, Alabama with the sole purpose of popping out a new world record top speed for an all-motor car in the 1/2-mile. Eddie makes consistent passes in the 180 mph range all weekend before destroying the 1/2-Mile (Naturally Aspirated) World Record on Sunday afternoon with a best top speed of 186.8771 mph. The Blackwell C5 Z06 is powered Read More

2016 North Carolina Cash Days

December 21st, 2016

This video features at least two things that I hold near and dear: street racing and the beautiful state of North Carolina. The Tar Heel State has always held a special place in my heart, with its densely wooded mountains in the west and stunning beaches in the east, but experiencing the Tail of the Dragon (on my modified Harley Davidson Road King bagger) took it to a whole different level. Between that, some wonderful white whiskey (for medicinal purposes and in moderation), and some of the friendliest folks on earth, I can’t help but go back time and time Read More

Street Roll – Turbo Mustang vs. ZR1 Corvette

December 14th, 2016

It has been said, where horsepower is concerned, there is no replacement for displacement. Certainly, I am all about the cubic inches, but recent developments in forced air induction have made racing a V6 or even a four-cylinder more feasible than ever. Of course, I always like to go with the strategy of building a monster V8 (with low compression specifically for power adders) injecting it with nitrous and then adding a supercharger or a couple of turbos – but that’s just one man’s path. There s something extremely rare in this video. It is so rare that it is Read More

Roll Racing – Mustang GT500 vs. LS Mazda RX7

December 12th, 2016

If you aren’t familiar with roll racing – just envision the racing version of a schoolyard game of pickup basketball – only much faster! Initially, a diverse contingent of heavily modified street cars converges on a gas station or convenience store (in Mexico) and there may be a little trash talk mixed with some tall tales about how much horsepower any given car may (or may not) be making. From there, there is typically some harmless wagering before the drivers and spotters jump in their cars and hit the highway. Tonight, there are numerous GoPro setups and multiple camera angles.

Interstate Assault – 3-Wide Roll Racing

December 3rd, 2016

Here we have a heavy dose of fast-paced roll racing action between some spirited competitors. To those of us who know what it feels like to bust our hump in a 50-hour-a-week gig and then pour our blood, sweat, and tears – not to mention our hard earned cash – into a car that we just want to go faster; there’s something magical about rolling down the highway under the cover of darkness knowing that our ride is running at peak efficiency. As the cool night air pours over my finely tuned V8, I know that miraculous things are about Read More

KC Cash Days – Street Digs

December 1st, 2016

Big tire versus small tire – cars versus pickups – Fords, Chevys, Mopars, and imports all lining up in head-to-head no prep street racing action. It’s a wild time on the Kansas City street racing scene. A private landowner has opened up his own personal drag strip to all comers and a tremendous contingent of top-tier competitors has turned out to win a fat stack of cash in single elimination, run-whatcha-brung, dig racing. Small tire guys are always whining about big tire guys whipping them. Big tire guys cry because setting their cars up costs more than the small tire Read More

Tesla P90D Street Racing – Roll and Dig Domination

November 30th, 2016

A few years ago, I would never have dreamed that the terms “electric car” and “street racing” would be used in the same sentence. These days, the Porsche 918 is the king of the hill when it comes to hybrid cars (and cars in general, I guess) but when you talk about full on EV power, the name Tesla seems to remain at the forefront. We’ve all grown accustomed to seeing Tesla P90D sedans, dragging the four-wheeled competition in Ludicrous mode, particularly in dig races. Now, with improved top-end capability, this driver is ready to take on modified street bikes Read More

Mad About Street Racing – Import vs. Domestic

November 29th, 2016

The time tested rivalry between imports and domestics rages violently on the streets of Mexico. This video brings us a bevy of radically modified street cars (and a couple of high-performance street bikes) gathering to compete in a contest of intellect, guts, and speed. You guessed it – it’s roll racing with multiple Go Pro setups providing tons of camera angles to make it feel like you are in the passenger seat. There’s a (1,100hp) Mustang Shelby GT500, with a 4.6-liter Whipple supercharger, that I have been anxiously waiting to see in competition rolling out against Lil’ Red; a DSM Read More

Blue Devil ZR1 Menacing the Streets

November 5th, 2016

I have said it before, and I’ll probably say it again, if you love fast cars then you’ll like this video and if you love Corvettes then you will love it. This particular Corvette is at the top of the food chain, as far a ‘Vettes go. It is the iconic ZR1 – also called the Blue Devil. The C6 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is well equipped from the factory with an LS9 6.2-liter supercharged V8 that makes 638hp and 595 lb.-ft. of torque. Top speed is an electronically controlled 205 mph. It also has a six-speed, race hardened, close ratio, Read More
