April 17th, 2018

Boom! Go along as our cameraman climbs on board one of the baddest street cars to ever roll down the entrance ramp and rule the interstate (of Mexico). This slippery red all-wheel drive Nissan GT-R tackles street bullies with more cubic inches and manages to hold its own, Buckle up! Our feature car is well equipped with a 4.2-liter V6 stroker motor with a Boost Logic BL1300 turbocharger kit (twin 3586 turbos). It is a monster in a race but well behaved in regular driving. It has a full interior with air conditioning and all the luxury accoutrement. The exterior Read More

TT Dodge Viper Tames Streets

March 30th, 2018

This video treats us to a group of savage street beasts built by Nth Moto (Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA), as they are unleashed on the streets (of Mexico). If you thought you had seen it all; this clip will ratchet your eyes open just a little bit farther. Forget about the 6-second GT-Rs and the 2500hp Lambos, the leader of this pack of snakes is a twin turbocharged Dodge Viper ACR. From the factory, it is one of the most capable track cars on earth. In its current state of modification, it is outright scary. The engine and transmission are built Read More

California Dreamin’ – Street Rolls

March 9th, 2018

It’s back to the left coast again for a healthy dose of beautiful sunshine, sea air, and sand in our flip flops – er, no – what we seek is open interstate, gasoline fumes, and hot floorboards. That’s exactly what we got from this outstanding group of street (roll) racers, south of the border. The action kicks off when the sun goes down with an all-wheel drive Honda CR-V that has been outfitted with a turbocharger. It has a 2.0-liter V-TEC engine and has undergone some basic weight reduction. There’s a twin turbo Dodge Viper running E85. A pair of 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

No Replacement for Displacement – Turbo Viper GTS

August 25th, 2017

Greetings roll racing fans! Please accompany us as we take a trip down south of the border (Mexico) for some street rolls. In an effort to prove that there truly is no replacement for displacement, a Dodge Viper (with its massive 8.4-liter mill) will take on a twin turbocharged Porsche 997 Turbo and a Ford Mustang with a Coyote engine and a Whipple supercharger. The action is of the roll racing variety. There are multiple passes at various speeds with some great camera angles. The footage is dramatic and the audio is truly amazing. These cars are skillfully modified and Read More

1360WHP Twin-Turbo Viper

June 29th, 2017

Greetings racing fans and welcome to the sunny state of Mexico for some top-tier roll racing on the highway. Turbo cars are advancing rapidly (get it?) in the area of dig racing but where turbocharged cars really shine is roll racing. After all, there’s no need to spool up when you are already running 60 mph in second gear at 4K RPM. The three cars featured in this video embody what turbocharged roll racing is all about. They are skillfully modified and outfitted to handle the rolling hills and gentle curves of racing on the highway. The Calvo Motorsports Viper Read More

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
