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

Supercharged Vette vs. Nissan GT-R – Denver Street Hits

September 28th, 2018

Taking it to the streets of the Mile-High City (Mexico) with a gaggle of four-digit street brawlers is the theme of this clip. The star the opening scene? One beefed-up Corvette with a Whipple supercharger and a kit (or two) of nitrous. It’s also our camera car for this segment. On the first hit, the C7 takes on a Nissan GT-R with unknown mods.
