Street Battle – Dodge Viper vs. Porsche 911

March 16th, 2017

Hello drag racing fans and speed enthusiasts of every variety and welcome to an epic contest between pure performance and overwhelming finesse. This competition transcends the long-time rivalry between imported and domestic vehicles and steps over into a realm where handcrafted elegance meets homespun horsepower. Before I get any deeper into the cars, this contest is taking place on a sunny stretch of highway south of the border. The action is of the roll racing variety. There are multiple passes and multiple camera angles. As you have probably deduced by now, the beast part of this equation is a 2016 Read More

Dodge Viper ACR Takes on Europe

October 19th, 2016

Give me a minute race car enthusiasts; I am having a belly laugh at this British gentleman commentator. His accent tickles my ears and he just said that the Dodge Viper ACR may not be as “dynamically brilliant as some of the cars that come out of Germany” – what a hoot. The latest and greatest (and probably the last) Dodge Viper is purely and simply a race car, designed for speed no matter what the purpose. There may be a few very expensive rides (produced in Germany) that can stand toe-to-toe with this Viper but give me that good Read More

Drag Week 2016 – Aussie Invasion

September 14th, 2016

It’s time for one of the biggest amateur drag racing events in the USA and the Australian teams are here is force. Hot Rod Drag Week is going strong in the Midwest and the 2016 field consists of nearly 350 entrants, including a barrage of hard-charging Australian lads and lassies, looking to test their skills and have a lot of fun. Drag Week events mean racing on four tracks in five days accompanied by a road trip of about a thousand miles. The catch is that the drag cars must be driven between racetrack destinations. That’s a lot of wear Read More

Porsche 918 Spyder vs Dodge Viper ACR vs McLaren P1

September 1st, 2016

This video saga involves three vastly different exotic cars, on the same tires, on the same track, and with the same driver. No, it’s certainly not drag racing, but it is an extremely even test of some of today’s most outstanding automobiles. The cars are the Porsche 918 Spyder. It is a hybrid high-performance vehicle that features a mid-mounted, 90-degree V, 4.6-liter engine, with a flat plane crankshaft, and two-electric motors making 887hp and 944 lb-ft. of torque. That’s pretty impressive but the sticker price is downright shocking at a cool starting point of $847,975. The Dodge Viper ACR represents Read More

Nitrous vs. Turbo – Viper vs. Mustang

August 26th, 2016

This black beauty of a Fox Body Mustang is making 1,100whp with a 363 cubic-inch aluminum Dart Racing engine, high performance cylinder heads, and a massive 83-millimeter turbocharger. It’s putting those ponies to the ground with a built automatic racing transmission. After spending a day at the track, and posting an 8.64-second ET at 159.19 mph, the pony car takes to the streets looking for some action. If you are looking for action, chances are that you will find some. This time it comes in the form of a burnt orange Viper SRT. The Dodge Viper SRT is producing 972whp. 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

1800HP 4WD Dodge Pickup

July 7th, 2016

Here is one for all the NHRDA fans out there. This 2007 Ram has undergone some serious modifications. Anyone who looks at it can tell that there has been a major weight reduction; then there are the 3 turbochargers. This thing is chugging down the 1/4-mile, making consistent passes in the low-to-mid 9-second range, leaving a cloud of black smoke along the way. It seems odd to see a full-size, long-bed, four-wheel drive pickup whipping Camaros and Mustangs but this truck has made it a habit. If this team can find a way to come out of the hole stronger, Read More

Dig Race – Evo 9 vs. Viper

June 8th, 2016

What’s better than a parking lot dig race? A parking lot dig race with beautiful women. What’s better than that? – when one of the beauties is driving a really fast car. Stunning Sky Espinoza owns two impressive Mitsubishi Evos and she does most of her own high-performance work and maintenance. She’s a real knockout – behind the wheel and in front of the camera. This clip shows her racing her ‘MisterJ’ Evo against a mighty Dodge Viper. The Mitsubishi rolls off the factory floor with a 2.0-liter turbocharged and intercooled 4-banger. It makes 286hp in factory trim; safe to Read More
