Stock Engine Viper World Record Half-Mile

April 14th, 2017

Those speed demons at Calvo Motorsports have done it again! These guys continue to push the limitations of top speed as they pertain to factory stock engines. If you are going to build a legacy of speed with stock hardware, what better place to start than the premier (arguably) high-performance coupe produced in the U.S. The Viper comes off the assembly line with a massive 8.0-liter V10 engine that is capable of producing more than 600hp. I am not absolutely sure about the rules for this particular class but I did hear the owner/driver talking about bolt-ons and a turbocharger. Read More

Dodge Viper ACR Takes on Europe

October 19th, 2016

Give me a minute race car enthusiasts; I am having a belly laugh at this British gentleman commentator. His accent tickles my ears and he just said that the Dodge Viper ACR may not be as “dynamically brilliant as some of the cars that come out of Germany” – what a hoot. The latest and greatest (and probably the last) Dodge Viper is purely and simply a race car, designed for speed no matter what the purpose. There may be a few very expensive rides (produced in Germany) that can stand toe-to-toe with this Viper but give me that good Read More

Porsche 918 Spyder vs Dodge Viper ACR vs McLaren P1

September 1st, 2016

This video saga involves three vastly different exotic cars, on the same tires, on the same track, and with the same driver. No, it’s certainly not drag racing, but it is an extremely even test of some of today’s most outstanding automobiles. The cars are the Porsche 918 Spyder. It is a hybrid high-performance vehicle that features a mid-mounted, 90-degree V, 4.6-liter engine, with a flat plane crankshaft, and two-electric motors making 887hp and 944 lb-ft. of torque. That’s pretty impressive but the sticker price is downright shocking at a cool starting point of $847,975. The Dodge Viper ACR represents Read More

Nitrous vs. Turbo – Viper vs. Mustang

August 26th, 2016

This black beauty of a Fox Body Mustang is making 1,100whp with a 363 cubic-inch aluminum Dart Racing engine, high performance cylinder heads, and a massive 83-millimeter turbocharger. It’s putting those ponies to the ground with a built automatic racing transmission. After spending a day at the track, and posting an 8.64-second ET at 159.19 mph, the pony car takes to the streets looking for some action. If you are looking for action, chances are that you will find some. This time it comes in the form of a burnt orange Viper SRT. The Dodge Viper SRT is producing 972whp. Read More

Street Racing – Z06 vs. Porsche 911 and More

July 26th, 2016

BK34 has taken it to the streets (down in Mexico, of course) in his modified Corvette Z06. This bodacious bowtie is equipped with a 6.2-liter supercharger engine from the factory. Add some strategically placed bolt-ons, a camshaft upgrade, and some upgraded cylinder heads and you have the advertised 580whp. He should have his hands full tonight with a Porshe 911 and a Toyota Supra. The ‘Yota has a Precision 6765 turbo and is claiming 650hp. The Porsche is running some very pricey aftermarket add-ons and claiming 540hp at the rear wheels. This is highly-competitive, 3-wide roll racing. Let’s take a Read More

Dig Race – Evo 9 vs. Viper

June 8th, 2016

What’s better than a parking lot dig race? A parking lot dig race with beautiful women. What’s better than that? – when one of the beauties is driving a really fast car. Stunning Sky Espinoza owns two impressive Mitsubishi Evos and she does most of her own high-performance work and maintenance. She’s a real knockout – behind the wheel and in front of the camera. This clip shows her racing her ‘MisterJ’ Evo against a mighty Dodge Viper. The Mitsubishi rolls off the factory floor with a 2.0-liter turbocharged and intercooled 4-banger. It makes 286hp in factory trim; safe to Read More

Money Race – Tesla P85DL vs Dodge Viper SRT10

June 2nd, 2016

Talk about silent but deadly; this P85 blasts from 10 to 110 mph (in seconds) and doesn’t make a sound. This Tesla raced the Viper previously and took a beating. This video shows the rematch, after a few minor upgrades for the Tesla. Check out the action. This is street racing. The first contest is roll racing, from 10 to 110 mph and the Tesla wins handily. Next, we have roll racing from 20 to 120 mph and the Dodge wins. After that, they begin at 45 mph and the Viper bests the Tesla again. Dig racing is next and Read More

1500HP Gen V Viper

May 25th, 2016

This is the world’s fastest Gen V Dodge Viper. It showed up at Heaven’s Landing Airstrip in Clayton, Georgia for the WannaGoFast7 event. Not only did this beautiful Gen V Viper bust the 200 mph barrier; it did so using 19-inch tires. This means that two world records were set in this video: Best top speed (200.5 mph) in the half-mile by a Gen V Viper and best top speed by a car with 19-inch tires in the half-mile. That’s a pretty good weekend’s work. This car has a built 8.4-liter V10 engine with a twin turbocharger setup. The combination Read More

Street and Strip – SRT Viper vs. Foxbody Mustang

April 12th, 2016

After a full day of roasting rubber at the drag strip, where it posted a best ET of 8.64-seconds @ 159.19 mph, this little Mustang is about to tangle with a radically modified Dodge SRT Viper on the streets. One would not expect a Ford to hang-in with a perfectly balanced performance machine in roll racing action. Check out the video. The outcome may surprise you. The Ford is making 1,100+hp using a 363-cubic-inch Dart Racing engine block, a set of precision built racing cylinder heads, an 83-millimeter turbocharger, and a heavy-duty automatic racing transmission. The Mopar manages to produce Read More

900HP General Lee Viper T/A Rocks Street Car Takeover

February 29th, 2016

Roll racing, dig racing, dyno testing – heck there’s even an inadvertent lane change in this clip captured during the Street Car Takeover Event in Dallas, Texas. Calvo Motorsports (Austin, Texas) is tearing up the Lone Star State with its rendition of the General Lee (Dukes of Hazard) except their version has replaced the confederate battle flag with a Texas State flag. The Generation V Snake has been modified with a Powerhouse Racing turbo setup that includes a pair of Garret 3794 turbochargers and a CM MoTec M150 ECU. This car has posted a 1/4-mile ET of 9.2 @ 150.6 Read More
