Track Rolls & Digs – 1,400HP Turbo Mustang

July 31st, 2017

Greetings racing fans – this video brings you two kinds of fun! The feature car – a late-model Mustang – is built for street racing but moving onto the drag strip eliminates the stress of being on the lookout for John Law and possibly crashing into a minivan full of civilians. It’s a good alternative when available. Street Car Takeover in Denver offers racers a chance to get in some roll racing and dig racing. If you can believe it; this couple is out at the track on the day before their blessed nuptials. Oh well, the couple that plays Read More

750WHP Chevy SS Trolls the Streets

July 28th, 2017

Hitting the strip on Saturday night in this Chevy SS is roughly the equivalent of cruising around on the street in a NASCAR racer. Advantages of this car include air conditioning, entertainment devices, and plush seating. It just don’t get no better than that! With the ability to put 750hp to the rear wheels, this sedan sounds amazing. It’s off to the interstate (of Mexico) for some roll racing action. There’s a reason that they write songs about little red Corvettes and if you roll alongside one, you’d best be ready to put the pedal to the metal. This little Read More

Nissan GT-R vs. Audi R8 V10 Plus

July 28th, 2017

This is an all-out drag race between two of the premier sports cars in production, right now. Both cars feature powerful engines and all-wheel drivetrains but only one can emerge victorious in this matchup. So, which one will it be? Will the Japanese win the day or will the Germans make them rue the day? Let’s check it out. The 2016 Nissan GT-R Black Edition uses a smaller engine than the Audi but adds forced air induction. It is a 3.8-liter twin turbocharged mill that is mated to a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. One of the features that makes this Read More

650HP BMW M5 – Street Rolls

July 12th, 2017

I just love a luxury car that can pull its weight in a street race. At the risk of revealing my advanced age, I’ll tell you that the luxury street racer bug first bit me when I built a huge 1978 Cadillac Coupe de Ville and implanted a nitrous injected big block Chevy running gear. It was fun but also heavy. This 2014 BMW M5 is fun but it certainly ain’t that heavy. The Bavarian Motor Works are globally recognized as leaders in the niche of elegant sports cars. The “M” in M5 refers to the BMW Motorsports division which Read More

Track Test – 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo

June 25th, 2017

A proper weapon of a car, lighter, more powerful, more exclusive, and faster are just a few of the adjectives being assigned to the new 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo. The racing competition describes the GT-R in different terms. “Godzilla” comes to mind. That’s a pretty accurate representation since the GT-R (like Godzilla) is from Japan and is very scary. Oh – by the way – it also has been known to terrorize big cities and small villages alike. The Nissan GT-R is an all-wheel drive supercar that can be had for around $110K – $175K. Make no mistake, it is Read More

New Half-Mile GT-R Top Speed Record

June 19th, 2017

Congratulations to Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) and English Racing. They have (once again) carved themselves out a place in the history of speed. The venue for this prolific undertaking was the ShiftS3ctor/Revolution Pike’s Peak Airstrip Attack in Colorado. Before the event began, Lucas English was heard to say that he would be pleased to surpass the previous top speed world record in the standing mile. That record was 252 mph. That was considered pretty optimistic since Pike’s Peak is only a half-mile course. The ETS GT-R is at the forefront of 1-mile, half-mile, and quarter-mile GT-R racing. These guys have Read More

Dig Race – Bugatti Veyron SS vs. Nissan GT-R

June 13th, 2017

Who wouldn’t want to see a dig race between two of the baddest exotic production automobiles in the world? What we have here is a $2.5-million French-built Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Supper Sport going up against a $105K Japanese made Nissan GT-R. Yeah, I realize that the Nissan has undergone some pretty expensive modification but no more than another $100K (or so) worth. The mid-engine, all-wheel drive Veyron gained worldwide recognition when it claimed the title of world’s fastest production automobile a few years ago. It set a top speed record of 268 mph. Since then, there have been plenty of Read More

Drag Race – McLaren 540C vs Honda NSX vs Nissan GT-R

May 27th, 2017

If you trust the statistics, all the data points to the McLaren getting spanked handily in this short drag race. Both the Japanese supercars have more power and more torque than the British variant. Adding insult to injury – the McLaren is the only car in this elite field that is not all-wheel drive so, it also has less traction. Fortunately for us, the producers of this video decided to go ahead and run the race anyway. Sometimes things don’t work out as expected. The carbon-fiber tubbed McLaren is the lightest of the three cars and is equipped with a Read More

Sunshine State Street Showdown

May 25th, 2017

Hello drag racing fans and welcome to sunny North Florida (Mexico) for the Street Mafia Cash Days. This clip features some of the most capable cars in the Sunshine State in some very competitive street (dig) racing action. To give us all a better understanding of just how competitive these digs are, there are cameras on both ends of the track. The rules are simple;; don’t jump the light and don’t cross the center line. Other than that it’s run-what-ya-brung, single elimination dig racing with a cash prize going to the top two finishers. Let’s take a gander! Round 1 Read More

Street Racing – Cali Style

May 16th, 2017

This is how it’s done in the Golden State. They are rolling them out on the interstate and running them like wildfire! A gathering of cars such as this virtually demands that a race ensue. It matters not where they meet; just that inside the chest of every driver beats the heart of a competitor. This time they meet on the streets – the streets of La-La Land – Los Angeles (Mexico), that is. There are several Nissans (of the GT-R variety), a 2.0-liter Evo (650hp) building 40 psi of boost, a stock (LS2) motor ‘Vette (660hp) with a V1 Read More
