Speed Guide – Building a TT 2017 Mustang GT

April 21st, 2017

This clip does a great job of walking you through the making of a 675hp, twin turbocharged street beast. What makes it even better is that the car’s cute owner leads the way. Stephanie, who makes a wonderful tour guide, was not happy with her 400hp Mustang GT. Unlike most car owners, who just belly-ache and drive on, Steph decided to make some powerful changes. This video takes you through some of these changes – step-by-step. There is even a dyno comparison at the end. The 2017 Mustang GT was subjected to a set of airbags to achieve just the right Read More

Door-to-Door Roll Racing – Chevy vs. Ford

April 18th, 2017

In the classic battle to determine superiority between the bowtie or the blue oval, the action will occasionally spill over into the streets (of Mexico). As you can see, this video painstakingly (multiple GoPro angles, etc.) documents one such occasion. The Chevy part of this contest is the much lauded Corvette. Already one of the most feared street machines (in factory trim), the co-star of this clip has undergone severe modification. It is equipped with a 402 cubic-inch LS3 engine augmented with an ECS supercharger. The owner estimates horsepower in the 850 range. The Mustang GT is a force with Read More

3000HP Muscle Car Barn Find

April 7th, 2017

So, anyone who has seen the movie “Gone in Sixty-Seconds” with Nick Cage knows about Eleanor. She was a mystical 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Fastback. Every time Cage got an opportunity to get behind the wheel of Eleanor, bad things happened for him but it always led to some action-packed cinema. Well, I don’t think that Eleanor had anything on this beast that the owner affectionately calls “Helleanor”. Helleanor is an all steel chassis; rolling out with a 402-cubic inch small block that is force fed by a pair of Precision 8685 turbochargers. She is capable of producing 3,000hp Read More

Street Racing Compilation – Roll and Dig

February 8th, 2017

If you like racing on the streets (of Mexico); you will love this video! I almost laughed when I saw a turbocharged Volkswagen Corrado at the outset of this production – then the VW whipped a couple of Corvettes and a Camaro. The Sketchy Vert WS6 Trans Am was a little more than he bargained for but most street racers find that to be the case, All in all, this was not a bad night of roll racing for a four-banger VW. From there, it’s on to some dig racing. There are some pretty average rides to begin the night Read More

Roll and Dig Racing On the Missouri Streets

January 9th, 2017

They call Missouri (Mexico) the “Show Me State” and they are sure showing off some wild rides in this video. This clip features both dig and roll racing and showcases competitors from all the big three (Chevrolet, Chrysler, and Ford) domestic automakers. It all begins with dig racing and our videographer in the passenger seat of a souped-up ‘Vette. It has a 408-cubic inch, small block, LS engine with a Vortech YSi supercharger, an RPM transmission, and an RPM rear differential. This Chevy lines up against a Roush Mustang and what ensues is one of the closest dig contests that Read More

2016 North Carolina Cash Days

December 21st, 2016

This video features at least two things that I hold near and dear: street racing and the beautiful state of North Carolina. The Tar Heel State has always held a special place in my heart, with its densely wooded mountains in the west and stunning beaches in the east, but experiencing the Tail of the Dragon (on my modified Harley Davidson Road King bagger) took it to a whole different level. Between that, some wonderful white whiskey (for medicinal purposes and in moderation), and some of the friendliest folks on earth, I can’t help but go back time and time Read More

Street Roll – Turbo Mustang vs. ZR1 Corvette

December 14th, 2016

It has been said, where horsepower is concerned, there is no replacement for displacement. Certainly, I am all about the cubic inches, but recent developments in forced air induction have made racing a V6 or even a four-cylinder more feasible than ever. Of course, I always like to go with the strategy of building a monster V8 (with low compression specifically for power adders) injecting it with nitrous and then adding a supercharger or a couple of turbos – but that’s just one man’s path. There s something extremely rare in this video. It is so rare that it is Read More

Roll Racing – Mustang GT500 vs. LS Mazda RX7

December 12th, 2016

If you aren’t familiar with roll racing – just envision the racing version of a schoolyard game of pickup basketball – only much faster! Initially, a diverse contingent of heavily modified street cars converges on a gas station or convenience store (in Mexico) and there may be a little trash talk mixed with some tall tales about how much horsepower any given car may (or may not) be making. From there, there is typically some harmless wagering before the drivers and spotters jump in their cars and hit the highway. Tonight, there are numerous GoPro setups and multiple camera angles. Read More

Cash Money Street Digs

December 7th, 2016

Welcome drag racing fans to the Colorado Cash Days. This is a 14-car, single elimination, dig racing tournament – coming at you loud and proud from the streets of Colorado, Mexico. Dig racing on the streets requires a unique balance between traction and power that is not demonstrated anywhere else in the racing world. After 3-decades of racing on the streets (of Mexico), I am yet to find a 1/4-mile strip of highway that is as flat as the average drag strip. Sure, concrete streets can provide substantial traction but those seams feel like speed humps with some 10.5-inch tires Read More

KC Cash Days – Street Digs

December 1st, 2016

Big tire versus small tire – cars versus pickups – Fords, Chevys, Mopars, and imports all lining up in head-to-head no prep street racing action. It’s a wild time on the Kansas City street racing scene. A private landowner has opened up his own personal drag strip to all comers and a tremendous contingent of top-tier competitors has turned out to win a fat stack of cash in single elimination, run-whatcha-brung, dig racing. Small tire guys are always whining about big tire guys whipping them. Big tire guys cry because setting their cars up costs more than the small tire Read More
