NA Viper Incinerates the Interstate

October 9th, 2017

Who says you have to have a power adder to win on the street? Everybody has got them these days. Turbochargers, superchargers, and nitrous – some racers even stack them just for good measure. I love them (and run them myself) but are they a must have? What happens when a good old boy decides to go with a whole mountain of naturally aspirated (NA) cubic inches in a high performance street beast? In this case, they call it SneakySnake. It’s an unassuming Dodge Viper (as unassuming as a Viper can be) and it is out to prove a point Read More

840HP Charger Hellcat – Street Rolls

October 1st, 2017

When the camera car is a 1,300hp Nissan GT-R, it is a good indication that the video contains some elite level street (roll) racing action. That was certainly the case during this night of street racing down in Houston (Mexico). There is a whole bevy of amazing street cars in this clip. After a short show-and-tell session, the competitors take to the highway where the action gets started. A 1,200whp Pontiac Trans Am Formula (6.0-liter engine, LS3 cylinder heads, and an 88-millimeter turbocharger) gets spanked by the camera car (1,300hp Boost Logic GT-R). Both these cars chew up blacktop like Read More

2018 Dodge Demon – Track Testing

September 30th, 2017

Just when you thought it was safe to go back on the streets – the SRT division of Dodge rolls out the Challenger SRT Demon. It makes the Hellcat seem like a pussy cat by bringing production car performance into a whole new realm. This video documents real world track testing of this incredible beast. It is almost unbelievable that a production car has the capacity to produce 840hp (808hp on pump gas) and 770 lb.-ft. of torque; much less accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.3-seconds (and that’s not to mention a quarter-mile elapsed time of less Read More

No Replacement for Displacement – Turbo Viper GTS

August 25th, 2017

Greetings roll racing fans! Please accompany us as we take a trip down south of the border (Mexico) for some street rolls. In an effort to prove that there truly is no replacement for displacement, a Dodge Viper (with its massive 8.4-liter mill) will take on a twin turbocharged Porsche 997 Turbo and a Ford Mustang with a Coyote engine and a Whipple supercharger. The action is of the roll racing variety. There are multiple passes at various speeds with some great camera angles. The footage is dramatic and the audio is truly amazing. These cars are skillfully modified and Read More

1360WHP Twin-Turbo Viper

June 29th, 2017

Greetings racing fans and welcome to the sunny state of Mexico for some top-tier roll racing on the highway. Turbo cars are advancing rapidly (get it?) in the area of dig racing but where turbocharged cars really shine is roll racing. After all, there’s no need to spool up when you are already running 60 mph in second gear at 4K RPM. The three cars featured in this video embody what turbocharged roll racing is all about. They are skillfully modified and outfitted to handle the rolling hills and gentle curves of racing on the highway. The Calvo Motorsports Viper Read More

426 C.I.D. HEMI Build and Dyno

June 21st, 2017

The 426 HEMI engine is a true icon of the muscle car era. It was an option in such memorable automobiles as the 1955 Chrysler 300M, the 1969 Plymouth Barracuda, the 1970 Dodge Super Bee, and the 1970 Plymouth Superbird. Nick Paranitis, of Nick’s Garage in Quebec, Canada has made a name for himself by building and selling HEMI engines. Nicks Mopar engines can be found in some of the most critically recognized Dodge, Chrysler, and Plymouth restorations in the world. This video introduces us to Nick and documents his breaking point. You see, Nick is plum fed up with Read More

Country Style Cash Days

June 7th, 2017

Where I come from, the smell of burning rubber goes hand-in-hand with tanned legs in Daisy Dukes – that’s one reason that I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else on earth. I thank God for places such as this! This clip comes to us from a narrow strip of country road in farm country. These rural racers entertain all comers, during King of the Asphalt IV, and give them what-for between the corn rows. The pavement is thin but the rules are the same; don’t jump the start, don’t cross the center stripe, and the winner of each race advances Read More

World Record Eighth-Mile – 1969 Dodge Dart

April 19th, 2017

It has been said that you just can’t keep a good man down. Lyle Barnett is a living example of that. After being badly burned while campaigning his Corvette during Lights Out 6 (2015), Lyle was back in the saddle for Lights Out 8. What took place there will be forever etched in the annals of drag racing history. Some might ask why Lyle would ever get back into a race car. Those people wouldn’t understand that inside him beats the heart of a drag racer. After a long recovery, Lyle climbed behind the wheel of Jason Digby’s 1969 Dodge Read More

Stock Engine Viper World Record Half-Mile

April 14th, 2017

Those speed demons at Calvo Motorsports have done it again! These guys continue to push the limitations of top speed as they pertain to factory stock engines. If you are going to build a legacy of speed with stock hardware, what better place to start than the premier (arguably) high-performance coupe produced in the U.S. The Viper comes off the assembly line with a massive 8.0-liter V10 engine that is capable of producing more than 600hp. I am not absolutely sure about the rules for this particular class but I did hear the owner/driver talking about bolt-ons and a turbocharger. Read More

840HP Dodge Demon – Test Hit

April 12th, 2017

Fiat Chrysler America (FCA) is set to raise the bar even higher in the area of high-performance stock production vehicles. The official announcement of the impending 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has sports car enthusiasts foaming at the mouth in anticipation of its release. The Demon will be the first performance machine ever offered with drag radials and the most powerful mass production vehicle ever made in the U.S. Not to be confused with the 707hp Hellcat, Dodge SRT has totally redesigned the propulsion system in the Demon and added a few new and innovative twists that should be thought Read More
