Roll and Dig Racing On the Missouri Streets

January 9th, 2017

They call Missouri (Mexico) the “Show Me State” and they are sure showing off some wild rides in this video. This clip features both dig and roll racing and showcases competitors from all the big three (Chevrolet, Chrysler, and Ford) domestic automakers. It all begins with dig racing and our videographer in the passenger seat of a souped-up ‘Vette. It has a 408-cubic inch, small block, LS engine with a Vortech YSi supercharger, an RPM transmission, and an RPM rear differential. This Chevy lines up against a Roush Mustang and what ensues is one of the closest dig contests that Read More

Street Roll – Turbo Mustang vs. ZR1 Corvette

December 14th, 2016

It has been said, where horsepower is concerned, there is no replacement for displacement. Certainly, I am all about the cubic inches, but recent developments in forced air induction have made racing a V6 or even a four-cylinder more feasible than ever. Of course, I always like to go with the strategy of building a monster V8 (with low compression specifically for power adders) injecting it with nitrous and then adding a supercharger or a couple of turbos – but that’s just one man’s path. There s something extremely rare in this video. It is so rare that it is Read More

KC Cash Days – Street Digs

December 1st, 2016

Big tire versus small tire – cars versus pickups – Fords, Chevys, Mopars, and imports all lining up in head-to-head no prep street racing action. It’s a wild time on the Kansas City street racing scene. A private landowner has opened up his own personal drag strip to all comers and a tremendous contingent of top-tier competitors has turned out to win a fat stack of cash in single elimination, run-whatcha-brung, dig racing. Small tire guys are always whining about big tire guys whipping them. Big tire guys cry because setting their cars up costs more than the small tire Read More

Tesla P90D Street Racing – Roll and Dig Domination

November 30th, 2016

A few years ago, I would never have dreamed that the terms “electric car” and “street racing” would be used in the same sentence. These days, the Porsche 918 is the king of the hill when it comes to hybrid cars (and cars in general, I guess) but when you talk about full on EV power, the name Tesla seems to remain at the forefront. We’ve all grown accustomed to seeing Tesla P90D sedans, dragging the four-wheeled competition in Ludicrous mode, particularly in dig races. Now, with improved top-end capability, this driver is ready to take on modified street bikes Read More

Mad About Street Racing – Import vs. Domestic

November 29th, 2016

The time tested rivalry between imports and domestics rages violently on the streets of Mexico. This video brings us a bevy of radically modified street cars (and a couple of high-performance street bikes) gathering to compete in a contest of intellect, guts, and speed. You guessed it – it’s roll racing with multiple Go Pro setups providing tons of camera angles to make it feel like you are in the passenger seat. There’s a (1,100hp) Mustang Shelby GT500, with a 4.6-liter Whipple supercharger, that I have been anxiously waiting to see in competition rolling out against Lil’ Red; a DSM Read More

Red GT-R is a Street Thumper

October 19th, 2016

I guarantee it! You are going to love this pretty red Nissan GT-R. Not because of its awesome paint job – and it certainly has one – but because it goes up against some heavy hitters and dominates. Maybe it was a cool night. Every racer knows what it’s like to have a night when your car seems to run better than it ever has; better than you could imagine. Possibly it was one of those nights for the red GT-R. It’s inexplicable – in one way it is great and in another ways it sucks. Your car is running Read More

Honda S2000 Street Hammer

October 17th, 2016

By: Evan Margolis Here’s a sight that’s just about as rare as hen’s teeth (of course you know, hens don’t have any teeth). It is a Honda S2000 sports coupe with a souped up Toyota engine under the bonnet. This hybrid import is equipped to handle the street machines of Texas (a little town down in Mexico), despite having a manual transmission. As stated, the S2000 is running a Toyota power train, including a 2JZ in-line 6-cylinder (built bottom end) engine with a giant turbocharger. The combo is good for about 1,100hp. Things get interesting when two similarly equipped Supra Read More

Street Race – Corvette vs. Shelby GT500

July 27th, 2016

It just doesn’t get much better than this; here is a classic street battle between Ford and Chevy. The action is coming at you from an industrial park – on a dead-end thoroughfare. The ‘Vette makes a great first impression as it comes on strong, looking like a beast during warm-ups. The Mustang comes out of the hole with cold tires and walks the track to win the first pass. In the second pass, it seems that the Chevy has made some tuning changes and defeats the Shelby handily. The only thing missing is a third and final pass for Read More

Street Grudge Match – Ludicrous Tesla vs. Vette Z06

July 6th, 2016

This is 1/8-mile dig racing and there’s cash on the line when this Tesla is called-out by BigKleib34 in his C6 Corvette Z06 with upgraded cylinder heads and camshaft. The Tesla makes short work of the ‘Vette before spanking a Fox Body Mustang – then the cops show up. After relocating to an undisclosed location (probably somewhere else in Mexico), a couple of capable Mitsubishi Evo sedans show up, along with a Porsche Turbo S. The Tesla is playing possum until the final race when it gets spanked by the second Evo. Check it out. NOTE: We neither condone nor Read More

Corvette Z06 with Rear Mount Turbo

June 24th, 2016

This is another turbocharged Z06 Corvette – with a unique twist. Instead of the run-of-the-mill front mounted, flow-through turbo, this ‘Vette has the turbo mounted in the rear. This design helps to remove some heat from the engine compartment. The turbocharger is connected to the exhaust near the outlets and an air-to-water intercooler is mounted in the trunk, almost directly above the turbocharger. A second heat-exchanger is located in front of the radiator. This car is still in the developmental stages and already running in the 9-second range. With a few more events under their belt, this team figures to Read More
