1000HP Trans Am – Street Rolls

February 1st, 2018

Here’s your chance to hop onboard some of the baddest street (roll) race cars in Mexico. These rides are radically modified and purpose-built for racing with a rolling start. Sheet metal? We don’t need no stinking sheet metal! Our first camera car is a turbocharged Pontiac Trans Am with a fender missing (not an inner fender either). This Poncho is running a small block Chevrolet (4.8-liter) engine with an 88-millimeter turbocharger (40 psi tonight) and a kit of nitrous. The transmission is a 4L60E. In the first race, the Trans Am rolls up on a nitrous burning Corvette (supercharged 6.2-liter) Read More

GT-R vs. ZR1 and Z06 – Street Rolls

January 29th, 2018

Hello racing fans and welcome to a night of street hits under the moon and stars of beautiful Houston (Mexico). Some major street racing players have shown up for the activities on this auspicious occasion. Featured in this video are a pair of modded-out Japanese sports coupes. These cars are officially called Nissan GT-R but they are affectionately referred to as Godzilla – for understandable reasons. The Black GT-R is upgraded with a Boost Logic (BL) 1100 Kit including GT30 turbochargers. It is capable of producing 1,100hp. The White Nissan GT-R is outfitted with a Speed By Design (SBD) 1400 Read More

Street Hits – DSM EVO 8 vs. Corvette Z06

January 12th, 2018

In an earnest effort to prove that there is no replacement for displacement, this beautiful, black Chevrolet Corvette Z06 will take on an EVO 8 (with a big turbocharger) on the streets of Mexico. This C6 ‘Vette is of the Z06 variety. That means that is is equipped with a boisterous 7.0-liter (all-aluminum) V8 engine. From the factory it is capable of producing 505hp. It is equipped with titanium connecting rods and intake valves and has attention focused on maximizing air flow and valve timing. This particular car has been upgraded with high-performance cylinder heads, camshaft, and intake manifold. The Read More

Corvette vs. Hayabusa – Street Rolls

December 19th, 2017

While I am always down for a trip to North Carolina (because it is one of the most beautiful and friendliest states in the U.S.), if you add some excellent roll racing, I am chomping at the bit to go. Only a few short years ago, cars didn’t race high-performance street bikes. The bikes were just too fast. With the recent trend towards superchargers, turbochargers, and more efficient nitrous kits, cages can hang with a few hot street bikes – providing that the two-wheelers aren’t running a power adder. As usual, the fine folks of the Tar Heel State turned Read More

Corvette ZR1 – Lambo Killer

December 15th, 2017

Colton from 714 Racing showed up at the Texas Invitational to represent his home state of California. Colton came to chew bubble gum and kick butt. It was after he had already arrived in the Lone Star state that he realized he was all out of bubble gum. So… A relatively young dude, Colton has an old school philosophy for achieving top speed. He is not one to throw aftermarket gizmos at this C6, opting instead to roll up his sleeves and remove some metal from the supercharger, intake, and cylinder heads. That’s right – he claims that precision porting Read More

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

Street Racing Spectacular – Import vs. Domestic

September 4th, 2017

There is literally something for every street racing enthusiast in this video! Of course, there are tons of fast cars in every size and shape – imports and domestics, turbo and nitrous, standard and automatic. There are dig and roll races (sometimes 3-wide). There’s even a wreck and a fight (sort of). The backdrop is beautiful (New) Mexico and its flat landscape. It’s perfect for street racing. There is a bodacious DSM (1990s Mitsubishi Eclipse or Eagle Talon) that is capable of 1,000hp – from a stock 2.0-liter engine with over 100K miles. You know that there were tons of 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
