Fast Fred – 5-Second Chevrolet C10

August 15th, 2019

Meet Fast Fred (I personally like Five-Second Fred better, but I don’t get to pick the names). Fast Fred is from Stockholm, Sweden (not Alabama). He is campaigning the 1966 Chevrolet C10 pickup that his father used to pick him up from school. He bought the truck from Dad when he was nineteen and it has been an example in the evolution of speed ever since. Fred is quite a character and his truck is unforgettable. Most of the patina on the truck exterior is man-made but it has been in a shop fire. Fred almost lost everything until the Read More

DragTimes vs Shmee150 – 2005 Ford GT vs 2018 Ford GT Drag Racing

August 4th, 2019

We meet up with Shmee150 and his new 2018 Ford GT for an all out drag and roll racing battle with my 2005 Ford GT. Can my old school 700HP+ supercharged Ford GT keep up with the modern day dual clutch twin turbocharged Ford GT?  

East Texas Daylight Street Digs

February 6th, 2019

This video brings us the equivalent of a mini Race Week. It takes place in the Dallas/Ft. Worth (Mexico) area and competitors must drive their race cars from one race location to the next. After racing the first round, if you pull back on the trailer, you are finished. Other rules apply. It’ll cost you $200 to race and it’s small tire (29.5-inch max.) only, single elimination contest. Don’t jump before the light comes on. Don’t cross the center line; be the first to cross the finish, and you move on to the next round. Keep doing that until the Read More

8-Second Lamborghini – Ride Along Street Hits

October 27th, 2018

Today you will be taking a ride with Taylor from Dallas Performance. He will be driving a 2018 Lamborghini Huracan Performante with a Stage 3+ twin turbo kit. That includes a built bottom end, CNC ported cylinder heads and this thing eats up pavement like a hog eats corn. As the first order of business, this video flips through some dig passes in a second Lamborghini. Just a series of contested and uncontested quarter-mile runs; consistently in the 8-second range @ 175 mph. If that interests anyone – it should – because this car sounds amazing! Next, climb on board Read More

VETKILR – 2JZ Mitsubishi Starion

January 12th, 2018

With a personalized license plate that reads “VETKILR” you might just as well have a target on your bumper. At the very least, you’d better have something under the hood to keep the wolves from the door (or rear bumper). If memory serves me, there was never anything impressive under the bonnet of a Mitsubishi Starion – not from the factory at least. That would explain why this DSM owner decided to take a different path to backing up his license plate. Sure, he could’ve went with an LS swap. I mean – it’s quick and economical but everybody is Read More

Big Block Twin Turbo Geo Tracker

September 27th, 2017

This innovative crew of gearheads has taken what must be lower than whale guts on the scale of high-performance vehicles and turned it into a beast of a drag car. In factory trim, the Geo Tracker is under powered and under appreciated. So, how do you fix it? Well, you take out the shaky four-cylinder and install a giant 7.4-liter big block Chevrolet engine with a pair of Borg Warner 6676 turbochargers (thanks to B3R). It is also running Holley fuel injection and a Rossler transmission. With the capacity to put 900hp to the rear wheels, you can’t go wrong. Read More

Hot Rod Drag Week – Final Day

September 20th, 2017

It’s all over too quickly – for fans and spectators, that is. Hot Rod Drag Week 2017 is coming to a close and the weary competitors are eager to get to the final track (Cordova International Raceway) after their 1,000 excursion. Traditionally, the final day of Drag Week means that racers and crews can put more power to the pavement (not that they haven’t already been pushing the envelope). All week long they have been trying to save their machines because they must be driven between each venue. The final day yields a little less worry because broken cars can Read More

Crazy Fast Aussie Sedan

August 25th, 2017

Produced in Australia, the 2000 Holden Commodore is basically the equivalent of a Chevrolet Lumina. While it is sold as a performance sedan, it is still considered a family car and an ultimate grocery-getter of sorts. Well, with a dyno test, some street hits and multiple track passes (on this video), even I can see that this is no ordinary Commodore. I guess the first clue was the two massive turbochargers that are nestled in under the front bumper. Let’s take a look under the hood: It all begins with an all-aluminum, 440 cubic-inch, Dart LSx based engine built by Read More

The Kitchen LS RX7 Tames the Track

August 7th, 2017

Once upon a time… some drag strip clowns told Brandi Sharp (she is extra sharp – by the way) to “get back in the kitchen”. Well, Brandi liked that idea so much that she brought her kitchen to the track and now she whips their tails with it. As you have already figured out – Brandi’s kitchen is an LS (6.0-liter) powered Mazda RX7. The engine has forged connecting rods and pistons and a large shot (300hp) of nitrous. The little coupe is making around 700hp and Brandi really knows how to use it. Brandi is a competitive No-Prep racer Read More
