2200HP Camaro Takes 1300-Mile Road Trip

July 20th, 2016

Feel like a 1,300-mile road trip? How about in a turbo car that is pushing over 2,000hp? Now, try it with four-rounds of drag racing along the way? That’s exactly what Rocky Mountain Race Week 2016 entails for Doug Cline and his awesome orange 1969 Chevy Camaro. This car is in every way a street car – that is capable of posting 1/4-mile passes that dip into the 6-second range (over 200 mph). It is equipped with a 598 cubic-inch big block Chevy engine and a pair of Precision 94-millimeter turbochargers. Ride along as this journey winds through the Colorado Read More

3000HP Second-Gen Camaro Street Car

June 9th, 2016

First of all, this Camaro is a street car. It is an all steel car (prepared by BrandoSpeed) with all of the factory glass intact. Despite weighing in at more than 3,500-pounds, this car whipped every other car in its class – at the Outlaw Chaos Event in Cedar Falls, Iowa – to take home the cash. A massive 540-cubic-inch ProLine racing engine and a pair of turbochargers get this fantastic looking muscle car down the 1/8-mile post-haste. This is a no prep event but the best 1/8-mile ET for this Mustang killer is 4.38-seconds. Take a gander for yourself; Read More

The Janitor ’68 No Prep Camaro

March 25th, 2016

The ‘Janitor’ is an awesome looking 1968 Camaro that has undergone some upgrades for the upcoming season. The nitrous oxide injection system is out and a massive 106-millimeter turbocharger has been added instead. The worn out old small block is on the scrap heap and a fresh (Torrez Performance built) 406-cubic-inch mill with 23-degree cylinder heads has taken its place. This is a No Prep event and the Janitor is running in the small tire class. With only 15-pounds of boost applied this muscle car pulled the front up nicely and got through the 1320 in fine fashion. I am Read More

Nasty 2200HP Camaro Z28

January 29th, 2016

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water – enter this twin turbocharged big block Camaro Z28. It is a true predator. The engine is a 509-cubic-inch big block (with AFR 357 cylinder heads) and it is force fed air by a pair of 4788 88-millimeter turbochargers. A Rossler transmission and four-link rear suspension help transfer power to the rear wheels. An inventive dual-fuel tank setup allows the car to cruise to the track in style. Running in the unlimited class, this mighty muscle car lays down a 4.8 in the eighth-mile at Street Car Read More

Bowtie Street Battle – Camaro vs Corvette

December 29th, 2015

This video shows us a roll racing contest between a big money supercar and a high profile retro muscle car. Both cars are daily drivers and both are pushing some serious ponies. The Corvette is sporting a 6.2-liter LS3 Chevrolet V8 engine and an A&A Supercharger (8 to 10-pounds of boost). Naturally, it also has all the necessary programming mods to go along with it. It is making around 600hp. The Camaro is outfitted with a Paxton Novi 1500 supercharger (10 psi), an East Coast Supercharger (ECS) camshaft upgrade, and it is making about 700hp. This is some hard fought Read More

Twin Turbo 7-Second Camaro ZL1

September 23rd, 2015

You have likely heard of Larry Larson. Larry is the guy who campaigned the S-10 Pickup, during the Super Car Nationals 2014, dipping down into the 5s in the process. Well, he has turned his attention to a 2015 Camaro ZL1. Now, this bad Bowtie is winning classes and whipping as*es all over the mid-west. Under the hood, Larry has implanted a 540-cubic-inch billet aluminum big block CFE Racing engine with a Callie’s Magnum crankshaft, Oliver billet connecting rods, and Diamond 9:1 flat-top pistons. The cylinder heads are BMF with 405cc intake ports, 2.325 intake valves and 1.880 exhaust valves. Read More

Street Envy – 750hp TT Green Camaro

August 18th, 2015

Check out this fantastic looking emerald green fifth-generation Camaro. This thing will have you green with envy – street envy, that is. A Hellion twin turbo kit with an AMS 2000 boost controller, a Psycho performance tuner, a camshaft upgrade, and a 3600 RPM stall converter are among the highlighted modifications on this bad Bowtie. The engine is a stock 6.2-liter. The Camaro makes short work of the first two competitors; a souped-up TT Infiniti G35 and a 685hp supercharged Ford Lightning F150 pickup. The final matchup proved to be a bit more of a challenge, though. The 750hp Mitsubishi Read More

Airstrip Assault Supercar Showdown

August 11th, 2015

This skilled videographer has managed to capture some very competitive head-to-head roll racing on a closed airstrip. There are representations from many of the big exotic manufacturers – Porsche, Lamborghini, Ferrari, and McLaren. The domestic bad boys showed up, too. There are Dodge Vipers and Challengers, Chevrolet Camaros and Corvettes, Cadillac CTS-Vs, and a scarce few Ford Mustangs. The imports include some Nissan GT-Rs and Toyota Supras (it’s alright to assume they are turbocharged). There is even an old ice cream truck and a 700+hp Volkswagen Golf. These lucky competitors line up at one end of the airstrip and start Read More

8-Second 1/4-Mile by an 18-Year Old Girl

July 29th, 2015

In my gym there is a small sign that reads, “Remember that somewhere in China a school girl just did multiple sets of 15 – with your max.” That reminds me of Alex Taylor. As the youngest competitor at Rocky Mountain Race Week, this 18-year old is competing on a level that is much more advanced than her years. In one clip she responds to a question regarding the effects of the Colorado elevation level with, “Ooooh, el-e-vation” and in another she is spewing analytical tuner data like an experienced crew chief. This racer is already good, but one day Read More

Twin Turbo Camaro vs. Turbo LS9 RX-7

July 24th, 2015

On a secluded airstrip in the desert, there stood a pretty girl. Her arms were raised and her long, dark hair was blowing in the warm breeze – that was just before all hell broke loose. She was a gorgeous starter and the hades that was unleashed came from a twin turbocharged 2012 Chevrolet Camaro and a highly modified 1994 Mazda RX-7. This is 1/2-mile roll racing and the Camaro gets the initial jump on the Mazda but the advantage is short lived (Hmmph!). The RX-7 posts a top speed of 191mph narrowly snatching victory from the Chevy that posted Read More
