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

The Tar Heel State (of Mexico) is home to some seriously competitive street racing. This time, we are taking to the highway for elite roll racing action and there are some heavy hitters in attendance.

Hello drag racing fans and welcome to sunny North Florida (Mexico) for the Street Mafia Cash Days. This clip features some of the most capable cars in the Sunshine State in some very competitive street (dig) racing action.

Other than that it’s run-what-ya-brung, single elimination dig racing with a cash prize going to the top two finishers. Let’s take a gander! Round 1 Read More

Street Racing – Cali Style

May 16th, 2017

This is how it’s done in the Golden State. They are rolling them out on the interstate and running them like wildfire! A gathering of cars such as this virtually demands that a race ensue. It matters not where they meet; just that inside the chest of every driver beats the heart of a competitor. This time they meet on the streets – the streets of La-La Land – Los Angeles (Mexico), that is. There are several Nissans (of the GT-R variety), a 2.0-liter Evo (650hp) building 40 psi of boost, a stock (LS2) motor ‘Vette (660hp) with a V1 Read More

1200HP Corvette – Godzilla Killa

May 10th, 2017

One doesn’t often see a modest Chevrolet Corvette walking away with the crown (Sport Class) in a roll racing event the size of TX2K17. It is even more unexpected to see such an occurrence when there are cars like the Nissan GT-R (Godzilla), Lamborghini Huracan, and the mighty Dodge Viper on hand. Add the fact that this C5 Vette is equipped with a manual transmission and you have a real phenomenon. This 2-seater is powered by a 408 cubic-inch GM small block and a massive turbocharger. The owner/operator (Ty) states that the car is capable of producing 1,200(ish)hp. Round 1 Read More

Door-to-Door Roll Racing – Chevy vs. Ford

April 18th, 2017

In the classic battle to determine superiority between the bowtie or the blue oval, the action will occasionally spill over into the streets (of Mexico). As you can see, this video painstakingly (multiple GoPro angles, etc.) documents one such occasion. The Chevy part of this contest is the much lauded Corvette. Already one of the most feared street machines (in factory trim), the co-star of this clip has undergone severe modification. It is equipped with a 402 cubic-inch LS3 engine augmented with an ECS supercharger. The owner estimates horsepower in the 850 range. The Mustang GT is a force with Read More

3-Wide Street Dig and Roll from Mexico

April 12th, 2017

This is how they do it south of the border – down (Nuevo) Mexico way. One could call this clip “Street Racing at its Best”. There are cars from all over the globe; Acura, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Dodge, Diamond Star Motors (DSM), Ford, Honda (rear-engine, 500hp?!), Nissan, and Subaru are all well represented here. Rolls The evening begins with a pair of supercharged C6 ‘Vettes locking horns in roll racing action. This turns out to be one of the closest races of the night.
