Street Hits – DSM EVO 8 vs. Corvette Z06

January 12th, 2018

In an earnest effort to prove that there is no replacement for displacement, this beautiful, black Chevrolet Corvette Z06 will take on an EVO 8 (with a big turbocharger) on the streets of Mexico. This C6 ‘Vette is of the Z06 variety. That means that is is equipped with a boisterous 7.0-liter (all-aluminum) V8 engine. From the factory it is capable of producing 505hp. It is equipped with titanium connecting rods and intake valves and has attention focused on maximizing air flow and valve timing. This particular car has been upgraded with high-performance cylinder heads, camshaft, and intake manifold. The 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

3-Wide Street  Rolls – GT-R vs. Mustang vs. Corvette

January 12th, 2018

Nothing says “loving” like some 3-wide street racing on the interstates of Old Mexico. That is especially true when you have a slew of radically modified imports and domestics ready to roll up on one another and get jiggy with it. Check it out! First of all; our camera car is a Procharged Corvette C7 with exhaust headers. It is running 93 octane premium fuel and taking on a Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck (in the initial contest) with a stock 6.0-liter engine and a Borg Warner S480 turbocharger (10 psi of boost). He is burning E85 fuel. The pickup jumps 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

Hellion Mustang vs. Nitrous Corvette – Street Rolls

January 7th, 2018

This video depicts the automotive equivalent of the Hatfields and McKoys – if a third (feuding) party were added. It is Dodge vs Chevy vs Ford; in no particular order. First up is a modified Dodge Challenger Hellcat. The Chrysler SRT Hellcat Package yields a 6.2-liter supercharged engine that has been deemed the most powerful (707hp) domestic production engine ever. The “Fat Cat” treatment adds upper and lower supercharger pulley upgrades, a cold air intake, and E85 fuel. This sweet looking Ford Mustang is no gentle pony either. This V8 powered steed has been equipped with the twin turbo Hellion 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

Corvette vs. Hayabusa – Street Rolls

December 19th, 2017

While I am always down for a trip to North Carolina (because it is one of the most beautiful and friendliest states in the U.S.), if you add some excellent roll racing, I am chomping at the bit to go. Only a few short years ago, cars didn’t race high-performance street bikes. The bikes were just too fast. With the recent trend towards superchargers, turbochargers, and more efficient nitrous kits, cages can hang with a few hot street bikes – providing that the two-wheelers aren’t running a power adder. As usual, the fine folks of the Tar Heel State turned Read More
