7-Second Dragonfly – 2000HP Fox Body

June 13th, 2018

There are street cars and then there are street cars but this awesome Fox Body Mustang is head and shoulders above the rest. It all begins with a brand-new 7.0-liter big block (LS) Dart Racing engine – prepared by OCHS Performance. Throw on a set of Frankenstein Engine Dynamics (FED) All Pro cylinder heads and a FED intake manifold package with a massive Precision 102-millimeter turbocharger and you are ready for some racing (an undisclosed Nitrous Outlet kit is riding along too). A Strange Engineering rear end helps put all 2,000 of those ponies to the pavement. The intercooler has Read More

Chris and Kayla – King and Queen of No Prep?

June 1st, 2018

Greetings racing enthusiasts and welcome to tiny I-29 Dragway in Pacific Junction, Iowa for Heads Up No Prep by The Shop Inc. Allow me to introduce to you a young power couple in the world of street and No Prep drag racing. They are Texas residents Chris Hamilton and Kayla Morton. You may recognize these two from Discovery Channel’s Street Outlaws cable television show. Kayla previously drove a multi-colored Mustang but has moved into a new white pony car. Stunning is a word that comes to mind when you see this new car that is adorned in a shade of Read More

Midwest Street Digs

May 17th, 2018

Like many of you, I love virtually all kinds of racing. With that said, there is a special place in my heart for dig racing on the streets (of Mexico, naturally). This video treats us to a night of street digs featuring some of the baddest cars in the midwest. Whether you are a turbo guy, a nitrous dude, a naturally aspirated gal, or a supercharger man; there is a lot to like about this clip. With the chips drawn and the competitors set to tow the line, we have the turbocharged Fox Body Mustang (LS powered) known as Beater Read More

Porsche 997 Turbo S vs. Corvette ZR1 – Street Hits

May 12th, 2018

Now, what we have here is a group of fun loving car enthusiasts taking to the highways of Mexico for some 40 and 50 mph roll racing. Yeah, I hear all you drag racers out there (and I do love my dig racing) but don’t knock it until you’ve tried it. No need to close down the road and no flagman required; these races start with the third drop of an arm extended from a window opening. The onboard cameraman and all the GoPro units catch all the action that is fast and furious – to say the least. Tonight’s Read More

Texas Street Rolls

May 9th, 2018

They say that everything is bigger in Texas. This may be an exaggerated statement but Texas street racers certainly do it as big as anybody in the land. They just do it south of the border. This clip features a diverse blend of imported and domestic vehicles that are purpose built for roll racing. These guys (and girls) roll onto the interstate and engage in a pure contest of speed that begins at 60 mph. The camera car is a 1,000+hp Nissan GT-R. In the first contest, it will do battle with a Cadillac CTS-V (nitrous equipped). The turbocharged import Read More

Coffeyville Street Drags – No Prep Falcon

May 8th, 2018

Welcome drag racing fans to the Coffeyville Street Drags in Coffeyville, Kansas. Competing in the Outlaw Class, our feature car is a vintage Ford Falcon with a cool wrap. Oh, wait a minute – my finger just fell into a rust hole – this ain’t a wrap. This body is actually rusty with a patina that belies its many decades behind the blue oval. So, the Ford Falcon belongs to Paul Witty who built this bad ride in his garage. He dragged it right out of a field and breathed new life into her by installing a 521 cubic-inch big Read More

Georgia vs. Florida – Cash Days

March 22nd, 2018

Buckle up racing fans; there’s no room for error in this one. These lanes are narrow and there is zero space on either side. Racing will be of the dig variety and it is single elimination. The rules are simple; don’t jump the light and don’t be first to cross the center-line. If you can accomplish those two things and cross the finish line before your opponent, you move on to the next round. After that, just be the last car to win a round (finals) and walk away with a fist full of cash. Easy right? This contest is Read More

Classic Mustang is Crazy Fast!

March 2nd, 2018

Grandpa’s first car was a ‘65 Ford Mustang. He got it when he was just sixteen. When it wasn’t fast enough anymore, he pulled out the small block and crammed in an all-aluminum 7.0-liter Dart Racing engine (10.5:1 compression ratio). Throw in a 250hp shot of nitrous and what he has is a 9-second show car that looks as good at the drive-in on Saturday night as it runs on the drag strip on Sunday afternoon. Seriously, this car is a real head turner. Every body panel is steel and it has been worked to perfection. The color choice is Read More

The King – 2000HP Fox Body Mustang

March 2nd, 2018

Calling himself the King of NO PREP Racing, this Fox Body Mustang posts consistent 8-second elapsed times in the 160 – 170 mph range. This is an all-steel bodied car (except for the hood which blew off during filming) with a massive 540 cubic-inch Chevrolet engine and a Precision 118-millimeter turbocharger (30 psi of boost). Competing in the Street Racer Class, the Wyoming Performance crew has the King churning at peak efficiency as it lines up for a first round matchup. In the right lane, we have a super clean, black,  turbo Fox Body. The black car gets the hole Read More

Coyote Capri – Fox Body Heartbreaker

February 7th, 2018

After driving this super-clean Coyote swapped Mercury Capri over 100-miles to his “home track” this racer crushes the competition in the Stick Shift Class (eighth-mile) before loading up his gear for the ride back home. Now that’s what a true street race car is all about. Under the hood of this beauty is a beast (1,000whp) of a Coyote engine with a Vortech YSi (20 psi) supercharger. A Tremec T56 Magnum gearbox with a McLeod clutch transfers all those ponies to  a stock 8.8-inch rear differential. This Merc comes out of the hole like a bullet and glides through the Read More
