Midwest Street Digs

May 17th, 2018

Like many of you, I love virtually all kinds of racing. With that said, there is a special place in my heart for dig racing on the streets (of Mexico, naturally). This video treats us to a night of street digs featuring some of the baddest cars in the midwest. Whether you are a turbo guy, a nitrous dude, a naturally aspirated gal, or a supercharger man; there is a lot to like about this clip. With the chips drawn and the competitors set to tow the line, we have the turbocharged Fox Body Mustang (LS powered) known as Beater Read More

MK3 Supra vs. Mustang and Vette – Street Hits

March 23rd, 2018

It is the holy grail of proud and loyal Toyota followers. It is the ghostly presence that slips quickly and quietly from the mist of a child’s (Toyota) dreams before they decide to become an import street racer. It’s the third generation MK3 Toyota Supra. The one in this video features a heavily modified Toyota 2JZ 3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder engine. The engine is built and topped with a Precision 6766 turbocharger. Tonight the mystical creature of Toyota lore will be taking on some worthy opponents. Let’s take a look and see how it fares. The first test for the Supra Read More

Unicorn C6 Corvette – 7-Second Quarter-Mile

March 21st, 2018

Greetings race fans! It’s drag racing time at TX2K18 from Houston, Texas. The sky is overcast on this first day of drag racing and the temperature is ideal for some record breaking runs. Miller Prep has been skillfully preparing the track for this monumental occasion and the elite contenders are all lined up in the staging lanes. Get ready for a day of drag racing in which 7-second passes are more the norm than the exception. Notably on hand is the twin turbocharged Unicorn C6 Corvette, the Boostin Performance Red Demon DSM, and Cleetus in the junkyard contraption that he Read More

Lone Star Street Rolls

February 24th, 2018

It has been said that everything grows bigger in Texas. The group of cars featured in this clip guarantee that this slogan also applies to street racing, in the largest state of the union. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at a typical night of street (roll) racing down in Texas, Mexico. The first, in what will prove to be an illustrious list of killer street machines, is our camera car. It is a modified Cadillac CTS-V Sedan with a set of drag slicks on the rear. It has been upgraded (under the hood) with a set of 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

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

Vintage Vette Victimizes Competitors

November 8th, 2017

Rarely do I see a C1 Chevrolet Corvette at the drag strip. The folks who own these classic beauties most often reserve them for car shows and cruising. It is even less common to see a vintage ‘Vette dominating multiple classes (Small Tire and Big Tire) of an event like Street Car Takeover Tucson. Another characteristic that makes this open air Corvette special is the absolute simplicity of the powertrain. In a day of massive power-adders, chemical injections, and specialized racing fuels, this classic ride is propelled by a small block, Chevy LS (V8) engine with a 100hp shot of Read More

1700HP Monster Corvette

October 31st, 2017

The crew at LSxperts is once again demonstrating their versatility with this beautiful, blue Corvette. This is the exact same car that set the half-mile top-speed world record (229 mph) during the Slipstream Racing event. With the final drive gear ratio adjusted appropriately, the ‘Vette is now ready to tackle the competition (in the eighth-mile) during Street Car Takeover (SCT) Atlanta. Competing in the Outlaw Class, this Chevy would face very stiff competition as some of the fastest drag cars in the nation were on hand at the Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, Georgia. This C5 Corvette is running a Brian Read More

Ohio Street Digs for Cash

August 30th, 2017

These cats in Ohio (Mexico) really know how to have a good time. You begin by finding an abandoned strip of industrial park pavement (3-lane if you can get it). Next, you invite a bunch of gear heads with fast cars and charge them a $100 buy-in on a winner-take-all pot. The rules are simple: It’s run-what-ya’-brung, single elimination, dig racing action. If you win – you move on to the next round. If you lose, you go back on the trailer. Competitors draw cards at the start of each round to determine pairings. Don’t jump (leave early) and don’t Read More

TX2K17 – Taking it to the Streets

August 29th, 2017

How do you kill some down-time when you are attending the TX2K17 event in Houston? Grab several hundred of your closest friends in fast cars (on bikes, too) and scamper across the border (into Mexico) for some street (roll) racing. Take a look! First up is a supercharged Honda S2000 in a roll race with a Nissan GT-R. The GT-R jumped out on him and never looked back. The S2000 lived to race another day. This time it’s against a Camaro with unknown modifications. The Honda wins this one – handily. Next, we have a pair of Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Read More
