NA Vette Crushes Half-Mile World Record

December 28th, 2016

Hello race fans and welcome to the WannaGoFast Texas 1/2-Mile Runway Shootout. Making this contest of top speed even more enjoyable for spectators this weekend is the presence of Eddie Blackwell’s 2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Eddie has come all the way from Huntsville, Alabama with the sole purpose of popping out a new world record top speed for an all-motor car in the 1/2-mile. Eddie makes consistent passes in the 180 mph range all weekend before destroying the 1/2-Mile (Naturally Aspirated) World Record on Sunday afternoon with a best top speed of 186.8771 mph. The Blackwell C5 Z06 is powered Read More

Roll Racing – Mustang GT500 vs. LS Mazda RX7

December 12th, 2016

If you aren’t familiar with roll racing – just envision the racing version of a schoolyard game of pickup basketball – only much faster! Initially, a diverse contingent of heavily modified street cars converges on a gas station or convenience store (in Mexico) and there may be a little trash talk mixed with some tall tales about how much horsepower any given car may (or may not) be making. From there, there is typically some harmless wagering before the drivers and spotters jump in their cars and hit the highway. Tonight, there are numerous GoPro setups and multiple camera angles.

Corvette Z06 vs. Porsche 918 Spyder – Really?

October 10th, 2016

This is definitely a drag race because one car gets dragged (to death) the length of the track. As one might expect, a contest between an all-wheel drive 887hp spacecraft and a 650hp rear-wheel drive sports car will easily be won by the spacecraft. Of course, the spacecraft in this scenario is the Porsche 918 Spyder, with its $1-million price tag, and the lesser sports car is the Corvette Z06 at roughly one-tenth the cost of the German monster. The Spyder (it’s more fun when you say it with a German accent) is truly an automotive work of art. It Read More

Ultimate Exotic Car Showdown

October 3rd, 2016

This could be billed as the most complete showdown of supercars ever compiled – with a few exceptions. The Bugatti entry is noticeably absent, there’s no Nissan GT-R, the Corvette Z06 was overlooked, the Dodge Viper ACR is nowhere to be seen, and what about Tesla? One more honorable mention might be the Koenigsegg Agera but that’s probably advancing into a different realm of automobiles. Nevertheless, this list is quite impressive and the video will leave any car enthusiast feeling as if they need to climb into the cockpit. The backdrop is a sunny RAF airstrip somewhere in the United Kingdom. The Read More

Big Three Battle on the Street

August 18th, 2016

Here’s a battle between Chevrolet, Dodge, and Ford (respectfully in alphabetical order), that takes place on the streets of an abandoned Mexican town. All three cars have manual transmissions and all three are bone stock. The racing is of the roll variety and the GoPro equipment is plentiful. That makes for some great looks at these amazing cars. The bright yellow coupe is the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. This is the Chevy flagship and it comes with a 6.2-liter supercharged and direct fuel injected V8 engine (dry sump oiling system) mated to a 7-speed Active Rev Matching manual transmission. The Read More

1000HP Hellcat Tears Up the Streets

August 16th, 2016

This Dodge Charger Hellcat is currently on a bit of a high horse – High Horse Performance, that is. The team at HHP helped this driver squeeze 1,000hp (950whp) from his 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI by adding a Diablosport tuner, a 2.85 crank pulley, a Green serpentine belt, a cat delete package, a set of Nitto NT 555R drag radials, and a nitrous kit. In factory trim the Hellcat Charger is touted as the baddest production sedan ever made. The 6.2-liter HEMI V8 makes 707hp and 650 lb-ft. of torque. Tonight, he is out trolling the streets for some action and he Read More

Street Racing – Mustang vs. CTS-V vs. Z06 Vette

June 16th, 2016

This is some top-tier street racing action between three domestic power houses. The Mustang has an awesome looking USMC paint scheme, an Aluminator Ford Racing engine, and a 76-millimeter CPR turbo kit. Hoo-Rah! This Ford is making 740whp on 93-octane fuel. The supercharged Caddy is making 630whp with a camshaft upgrade, a cold air intake, a crank pulley upgrade, and a methanol injection. Finally, we have the naturally-aspirated Chevrolet Corvette Z06 producing 600whp, the old fashioned way. The ‘Vette is also the camera car. Check it out – this is classic roll racing between three mean mothers. NOTE: We neither Read More

Corvette Z06 vs. Cadillac CTS-V

May 27th, 2016

This is street (roll) racing between a modified ‘Vette and a souped-up Cadillac. Times were, when you get your sports car modified to your liking and hit the streets for some roll racing action, the last thing that you would expect is for a sedan to give you a run for your money. Well, time passes and things change; today’s high-powered sedans are pretty potent from the factory and they are easily modified. Despite the fact that this race is between a top-tier sports coupe and a luxury sedan, it is one of the closest street contests that I have Read More

TT Z06 Vette Makes 7-Second Pass @ 177.95 MPH

February 15th, 2016

Welcome to world famous Orlando Speed World, for some closed course dig passes and time-trial testing. Redline Motorsports has rented the track for the day and brought along their twin-turbocharged 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. The track conditions are perfect and the bad bowtie is hitting a thunderous lick as it comes to the line. This little “cream-puff” is equipped with a 432-cubic-inch LSX engine with Diamond pistons, Oliver billet connecting rods, and a Callie’s Magnum crankshaft, topped off with a set of Mast Motorsports 285cc LS7 cylinder heads (and that’s only the tip of the iceberg). Forced air induction is Read More

Chi-Town Street Shootout

December 22nd, 2015

This clip features big-league roll racing from the streets of Chicago. Some pretty heavy hitters showed up; including an array of Nissan GT-Rs, a turbocharged Porsche, and a 600hp Corvette Z06. Check out the action as these bad boys run three (and sometimes even four) wide through the streets of a deserted metropolis. The Z06 ‘Vette held his own throughout the night but the Alpha 9 GT-R proved to be untouchable (get it? another reference to Chicago?). It rolls out strong with an AMS performance package that incorporates a pair of Alpha 9 billet wheel turbochargers, Alpha spec wastegate actuators, Read More
