2000HP Mustang Drop-Top

October 27th, 2017

In a sea of hopped-up, high-performance street cars, we spotted this Mustang convertible. You just don’t see that many fast drop-tops so, we decided to take a closer look. The venue is Street Car Takeover St. Louis and the Class is Small Tire. This little red Mustang is powered by a 400 cubic-inch small block with an 85-millimeter turbocharger. Power output is estimated at 2,000hp. Round One brings about a touch of Mustang on Mustang fun. Our feature car cuts the light on the competition and gaps him easily. Round Two winds up being the semi-final round and a solo Read More

Thin Mint – 6-Second Mustang

October 11th, 2017

This brilliantly hued Mustang is much more than just a pretty face. It manages to post consistent 6-second elapsed times and win races in the process. To answer the obvious question: The paint job is a mixture of a seventies Ford Mustang Mach 1 color and (of all things) an Aston Martin shade. I’m not sure whether I like it or not but it is certainly unique. I definitely like what has been done under the hood. The best thing that can happen to a small coupe is a huge engine. The Thin Mint has a 5.4-liter modular unit from Read More

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

Mustang GT500 vs Turbo Corvette – Street Rolls

October 5th, 2017

Your chariot awaits. Climb on board and buckle up for some crazy street racing action. The camera car is a Shelby GT500 Mustang that has been outfitted with a Kenne Bell 3.6-liter supercharger. It’s running E85 fuel. You’ve heard of kicking butt and taking names? (if not, just ask your grandpa). Well this Ford is definitely taking pictures but is it kicking butt? Let’s find out. The first contest is between the camera car and a Corvette Z06 with a camshaft upgrade and the full line of bolt-on accoutrement. It looks like the ‘Vette got gapped. Next, we have some 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

LS – Street – Fest 2017

September 26th, 2017

Annually, the Holley LS Fest East brings out some of the baddest LS powered (and LS spoiler) street machines on the East Coast. They spend the daylight hours at the track; generally behaving cordially and showing some degree of distinguished restraint. So, how do you suppose these rambunctious hooligans (myself included) entertain themselves when the lights go down and the gates are locked at the drag strip? They hit the streets (of Mexico – of course) for some high-spirited roll racing action. Peel your eyeballs and have a look for yourself. The general rule of the day is 60 mph 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

Crazy Fast Inline 6-Cylinder Ford Mustang

August 30th, 2017

 If you are into unique race cars, you will love this one. I don’t know whether to call it crazy fast, crazy smooth, or just plain CRAZY! This car accelerates so fast and smooth that it is like something from another world. Well, it is sort of from another world, This Fox Body is based out of a beautiful place called Qatar. The innovative power plant is a Nissan TB48, 4.8-liter, inline 6-cylinder engine from a Nissan Patrol SUV (very popular vehicle in this part of the world). Add a 98-millimeter turbocharger with all the goodies, along with a custom 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

Gold Dust Mustang Crushes Eighth-Mile
