8-Second Mustang ZR1 LS Swap

June 11th, 2019

Is it a waste of a good Corvette engine? Is it a Gen IV Mustang gone rogue? The answer depends on which manufacturer camp you represent. Chevy purists hate it for the former and Ford loyalists despise it as the latter. Now, don’t get it twisted – when I cut myself, tiny little bowties ooze out – but I see this build from a practical standpoint, and it looks pretty sweet. This “power couple” had the Mustang sitting around when a customer totaled their supercharged Corvette ZR1 with an LS9 mill between the fenders. Out came the blue oval cluster Read More

10-Second Jeep Trackhawk – Roll and Dig Racing

June 4th, 2019

Hello racing fans and welcome to Street Car Takeover (Chi-town) for a day of roll racing and dig racing. The focal point of this video is an all-wheel drive SUV (with a few bolt-ons) that is set to run amuck among such entries as the Nissan GT-R and the daunting Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. Certainly, the Jeep Trackhawk is well equipped to handle sports cars of evert variety. Starting with a big supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 engine, this is the most powerful SUV ever produced.

158 MPH Corvette Z06 – Track Rolls

May 24th, 2019

Greetings racing fans and welcome to Bradenton, Florida for Street Car Carmegeddon. This year’s event is crawling with fast cars and fierce competitors from all over the world. Hold onto your hats, this should be a good one! Featured in this video is a 2007 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 with a gently modified 7.0-liter V8 engine. It has been treated to a set of pistons by Carillo Performance, but it still has the stock crankshaft and connecting rods. It has a vintage AP twin turbo setup with 61-millimeter twins.

Turbo Vette – 2500HP Brute

May 10th, 2019

It’s Street Car Takeover at Thunder Valley and our feature car for this clip is a real bruiser. With a 460 cubic-inch motor and a 118-millimeter turbocharger, this potent Chevy is expected to rule the field if he can get all those ponies to the pavement successfully. In addition to the big LSx engine and turbo, this car has Kook’s stainless exhaust headers, a dry-sump oiling system, and it has been swapped to a solid rear axle setup. Thompson Motorsports built the car, and this is only the fifth or sixth outing. When these guys get the bugs worked out, Read More

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

Import vs. Domestic Street Hits – Supra Vette Mustang

December 1st, 2018

What’s better than some roll racing on a crisp fall night in Mexico? How about 3-wide roll racing on a deserted highway? If that don’t light your fire – your wood must be wet. What we have tonight is a battle royale between a turbocharged Toyota Supra (900 – 950whp), a Procharged C7 Chevrolet Corvette (930whp) from Advanced Modern Performance, a twin turbocharged Ford Mustang (850whp), and a second C7 ‘Vette with full bolt-ons and a kit of nitrous. Mustang is the camera car. Rolling out first is the pony car against the Toyota. The Mustang takes the hit; pulls Read More

800HP Corvette ZR1 vs. N2O Shelby GT500 – Street Hits

November 22nd, 2018

Greetings street racers and welcome to an undisclosed location south of the border for some high-intensity roll racing action. Roll racing typically takes place on the freeway or interstate and involves at least two vehicles. Of course, light traffic is preferred. This often requires street racers to run during the late hours of evening/wee hours of morning. Racing begins as (at least) two racers align, in their respective lanes, and reach a predetermined vehicle speed (usually 60 mph). Racing is interrupted when one of the participants (the winner) reaches a predetermined top speed (usually 140 mph). It ain’t easy. If Read More

Chevy Corvette ZR1 vs. McLaren 720S – Street Hits

November 14th, 2018

Greetings fellow street and drag racing enthusiasts and participants. Tonight, we have a special treat. In an ultra-modern adaptation of ‘Paul Revere’s the British are Coming’, we have a bevy of American-made high-performance vehicles, all of which have been modified for the purpose of racing, awaiting the arrival of a certain British supercar. Let’s drop-in on the action as some of the Americans hone their skills on one another. In the initial pass (roll racing), a pair of identically modified (save for E85 fuel) Corvette ZR1s have squared-off. *Don’t miss the Chevrolet SS with the twin turbochargers poking through the Read More

November 13th, 2018

Hello, drag racing fans and welcome to the Houston Raceway. This clip brings us the quickest (quarter-mile) C7 Corvette and consequently, Gen V LT powered vehicle on the planet! If quarter-mile drag racing has a Mecca, it’s the 7-second elapsed time. Everyone dreams of climbing into their own custom-crafted drag racing machine and posting a 7-second pass at nearly 200 MPH. The crew at LMR (Late Model Racecraft) is more than prepared to take the plunge (into the sevens) and etch their names into the annals of history.
