2200HP Classic Chevy – Stock I6 With Turbo

September 26th, 2019

Produced from 1970 until 1992, the Chevrolet Opala was derivative of a Chevy chassis and an Opel body. The drivetrain was all GM, as well. Never heard of it? That’s because the Opala was built and sold in Brazil. That’s where the drag racing action on this video is documented. The Opala with no paint is particularly impressive. Competing in the TTA Class, it must use the stock (numbers matching) engine block and cylinder heads. That translates into an inline 6-cylinder from 1971. In stock trim, the 4.1-liter power plant was only capable of churning out about 170hp. Today, this Read More

Chevy C10 Sleeper Terrorizes Texas Streets

September 20th, 2019

Okay, so this truck looks like it was just pulled out of the salvage yard – until you open the hood. It is a shortbed (all-steel) 1985 Chevrolet C10 pickup with a mismatched front clip. The paint is rough, and the interior is raggedy, but it will roll up some wins on the street (Mexico). You don’t think it will? Hide and watch. Nestled in the wide-open expanses of the underhood area is an aluminum LSA Chevrolet crate motor, with a set of high(er)-performance cylinder heads. You might recognize the supercharged 6.2-liter LSA engine from the Camaro ZL1. Right out Read More

Taking it to the streets! What else is a fellow in a twin turbocharged Dodge Viper supposed to do on a warm summer night? This guy fills up with E85 and takes to the interstate (of Mexico) for a healthy dose of roll racing action. Let’s take a gander. Featured in this clip is a twin turbocharged Dodge Viper.

Torque Monster – 1972 Nova LSx NA

September 15th, 2019

Hello drag racing fans. Meet Memo from APS Muscle Cars, Inc. and his pristine 1972 Chevrolet Nova. No, it does not look like your average Nova, because it has been treated to the full Memo effect. The white and black paint scheme is very unique and as slick as glass. The black accents and black lines in the hood, door and trunk openings provide a subtle interruption to the bright white primary color. Black, Ringbrothers billet door handles and exterior mirrors finish out the look. The wheels are custom with specially designed Nova (emblem) center caps. The interior is basically Read More

Getting Down on the Street – Twin Turbo CTS-V

August 29th, 2019

To be perfectly candid, there are actually a pair of twin turbo Cadillac CTS-V entries into tonight’s action-packed lineup. There are also a number of other very capable cars from all over the globe. The racing action kicks-off very quickly in this clip. Let’s look in on the highway. First on the roll call is the white Caddy against a twin turbo Ford Mustang. Both cars come out of the hole rapido. After that, the Mustang is gone! Next up are the CTS-V entries going head-to-head. This one is interrupted by a long and profane argument regarding the exact speed Read More

10-Second Chevrolet Camaro Z28 – Track Digs

August 23rd, 2019

Nothing complicated about building a 10-second car. Not according to these guys, anyway. No turbochargers, no superchargers, not even any nitrous; just good, old-fashioned, bottom-end grunt and a great deal of consistency. Can you say truck motor? How about 5.3-liters of naturally aspirated V8 LS1? This stunner has stock cylinder heads, an Ed Curtis camshaft, a Fast 92/92 (Texas Speed) intake manifold/throttle body combo and it’s tuned by Nishan (New Jersey). The transmission is a 4L60E automatic (Yank SS4000 torque converter) and the rear end is a stock 10-bolt with a 3.42:1 final drive gear ratio. Right off the trailer, Read More

Fast Fred – 5-Second Chevrolet C10

August 15th, 2019

Meet Fast Fred (I personally like Five-Second Fred better, but I don’t get to pick the names). Fast Fred is from Stockholm, Sweden (not Alabama). He is campaigning the 1966 Chevrolet C10 pickup that his father used to pick him up from school. He bought the truck from Dad when he was nineteen and it has been an example in the evolution of speed ever since. Fred is quite a character and his truck is unforgettable. Most of the patina on the truck exterior is man-made but it has been in a shop fire. Fred almost lost everything until the Read More
