Greetings No Prep fans and drag racing enthusiasts of every variety. Welcome to the PSCA event (Rocky Mountain Summer Series) from Thunder Valley (Bandimere Speedway) in Morrison, Colorado. Meet Kelly Harvey, owner/operator of this stunning 1967 Chevy Nova. Let’s join our friend Brent as he takes us behind the scenes and inside the cockpit with Kelly during an actual run. Take it away, Brent! First, let’s take a look at what makes this sweet ride tick. Under the hood is a billet 521 cubic-inch Brad Anderson HEMI engine with a massive blower. No expense has been spared as this Nova Read More

8-Second Mustang ZR1 LS Swap

June 11th, 2019

Is it a waste of a good Corvette engine? Is it a Gen IV Mustang gone rogue? The answer depends on which manufacturer camp you represent. Chevy purists hate it for the former and Ford loyalists despise it as the latter. Now, don’t get it twisted – when I cut myself, tiny little bowties ooze out – but I see this build from a practical standpoint, and it looks pretty sweet. This “power couple” had the Mustang sitting around when a customer totaled their supercharged Corvette ZR1 with an LS9 mill between the fenders. Out came the blue oval cluster Read More

7-Second Patriot Camaro – LS Fest West Domination

June 7th, 2019

Howdy race fans and welcome to the Holley LS Fest West from Sin City – Las Vegas, NV. The focal point of this clip is a late model Camaro (body) campaigned by the skilled experts at Texas Speed and Performance. TSP has built a car that comes out of the hole like a bullet. It devours the 1320 like an asphalt carnivore and goes straight as an arrow. Consistent 7-second passes are expected when you see this late model Camaro. The patriotic wrap on this Chevy is great. It is a steel Camaro body on a race car chassis. At Read More

10-Second Jeep Trackhawk – Roll and Dig Racing

June 4th, 2019

Hello racing fans and welcome to Street Car Takeover (Chi-town) for a day of roll racing and dig racing. The focal point of this video is an all-wheel drive SUV (with a few bolt-ons) that is set to run amuck among such entries as the Nissan GT-R and the daunting Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. Certainly, the Jeep Trackhawk is well equipped to handle sports cars of evert variety. Starting with a big supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 engine, this is the most powerful SUV ever produced. From the factory, this slick looking grocery-getter makes over 700hp, can accelerate from 0 to 60 Read More

158 MPH Corvette Z06 – Track Rolls

May 24th, 2019

Greetings racing fans and welcome to Bradenton, Florida for Street Car Carmegeddon. This year’s event is crawling with fast cars and fierce competitors from all over the world. Hold onto your hats, this should be a good one! Featured in this video is a 2007 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 with a gently modified 7.0-liter V8 engine. It has been treated to a set of pistons by Carillo Performance, but it still has the stock crankshaft and connecting rods. It has a vintage AP twin turbo setup with 61-millimeter twins. The manually shifted transmission is fortified in some unknown manner and uses Read More

Turbo Vette – 2500HP Brute

May 10th, 2019

It’s Street Car Takeover at Thunder Valley and our feature car for this clip is a real bruiser. With a 460 cubic-inch motor and a 118-millimeter turbocharger, this potent Chevy is expected to rule the field if he can get all those ponies to the pavement successfully. In addition to the big LSx engine and turbo, this car has Kook’s stainless exhaust headers, a dry-sump oiling system, and it has been swapped to a solid rear axle setup. Thompson Motorsports built the car, and this is only the fifth or sixth outing. When these guys get the bugs worked out, Read More

Big Turbo G-Body – 9-Second Quarter-Mile

March 26th, 2019

Greetings fellow drag racing fans and aficionados of speed from every ilk! Welcome to historic Cecil County Dragway in Rising Sun, Maryland for an evening of head-to-head drag racing. This video will feature a type of car that we’ve all see at the track – maybe even lined up beside. We look over and chuckle at the big ol’ G-Body (Monte Carlo, etc.). Sure, the engine sounds alright, but look at those itty-bitty skins out back. Besides that, he’s gotta be so heavy, huh? Then the guy lines up and fogs out the bleach box, runs a 9-second E.T. and Read More

Super Sleeper – 9-Second Chevy SS

February 20th, 2019

Nothing I like better than a really stealthy street sleeper. This 2015 Chevrolet SS has been transformed into just such a masterpiece. In all practicality, it looks stock. The only real giveaway – without opening the hood – is the drag racing rubber and the beautiful sound of the exhaust. Jeff, the owner of this capable Chevrolet sedan sleeper, sent to Australia for the unique Harrop supercharger that rests gently atop its 6.2-liter V8 perch. In addition to the Harrop (Eaton) 2650 blower, the cylinder heads and camshaft have been upgraded, along with the exhaust and the fuel system (DSX Read More

266 MPH BIG RED Camaro – Inside the Build

February 10th, 2019

As a muscle car that began as a production model Camaro Z28, this Chevy has evolved a long way into the complete racing machine you see today. BIG RED was initially modified as a Pro Touring car. After shocking the field at the legendary La Carrera Classic, in Mexico, this classic cruiser was kicked to the curb for being too much for the other Pro Touring cars (Lamborghini, Ferrari, Porsche, etc.) to handle. After all, it was “only” a 1969 Camaro. Since then, BIG RED has gone on a tear. It is currently setup for top speed airstrip (mile and Read More

Turbo Silverado vs. Supercharged Mustang – Street Hits

January 9th, 2019

Roll racing is frowned upon by some. Usually those who haven’t tried it. My heart will always be in the dig, but there is something exhilarating about hitting the interstate for some high-speed shenanigans. Boosted vehicles are ideal for roll racing because they have ample opportunity to spool-up before the racing begins at 40, 50, or 60 mph. From there, it’s pure power through 140 or 150 mph – what’s not to love? This clip features street (roll) racing between a diverse group of vehicles. There’s a Chevrolet Silverado 1500 pickup truck with a 5.3-liter engine and Garrett S480 turbocharger. Read More
