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

Airstrip Attack Corvette Z06 vs Mustang Shelby GT500

October 15th, 2015

In this epic battle that is nearly as old as high-performance cars themselves, a Chevrolet and a Ford line up and go head-to-head. This modern day affair features a high-flying Chevrolet C6 Corvette Z06 and a top-of-the-line 2014 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. The scene is set on a closed airstrip at the New Coalinga Municipal Airport in Coalinga, California during the ShiftS3ctor Airstrip Attack 8 event. It’s half-mile dig racing at its best between two prime time nearly stock hot rods. The Mustang is bone stock but the Shelby GT500 package, with a 662hp 5.8-liter supercharged DOHC V8 and manual Read More

2000HP Texas Mile Corvette Z06

October 7th, 2015

This video is brought to us courtesy of KP Racing in Houston, Texas. It features Kelly Bise’s Chevrolet Corvette Z06 during dyno testing. In factory trim the Z06 is legendary by any standard but this little cream-puff is extraordinary in its own right. With a 427-cubic-inch Chevrolet LS engine, twin Pro-Mod 88-millimeter turbochargers, a 300-shot of nitrous, and a highly modified T56 transmission (with a custom-built 4-disc carbon-fiber clutch), Kelly has ambitions of claiming the Corvette record later this year during the Texas Mile event. If everything goes as planned, this car that is built specifically for the standing mile, could Read More

Hellcat Slayer? Cadillac CTS-V Street Racer

September 7th, 2015

It’s street racing – south of the border style and we got a pair of bad-axs Cadillacs lining up against all comers. The first one is equipped with a 125 shot of nitrous, a camshaft upgrade, and a crank pulley upgrade. He says that he’s making somewhere in the “high sixes” (kinda’ tongue in cheek, if you ask me). He then proceeds to walk the dog on a 750hp Dodge Challenger Hellcat with an aftermarket driveshaft and an E85 tune. Both cars are supercharged from the factory. Next up is a pretty blue Corvette Z06 with a 250 shot of Read More
