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

Naturally Aspirated Viper Turns 9.95-Second Quarter-Mile

February 19th, 2016

Andy Wheeler and the crew from Viper Exchange calmly rolled out their Gen 5 Viper, at the Texas Speed Syndicate Viper Nationals Event, and set a world record for the quarter-mile. This beautiful Competition Blue Snake looks and sounds amazing as it blazes through the 1320 in under 10-seconds at 140.69 mph. No forced air induction for this naturally aspirated supercar; in fact it is still under the factory warranty. Modifications include an Arrow ported cylinder head and camshaft kit, an Arrow racing fuel tuned controller, a crank pulley upgrade, ARH long tube exhaust headers and cat-back exhaust system, a Read More

Supercar Street Shootout

December 31st, 2015

Here’s a good one for you; two European monsters going head-to-head with a radically modified Viper. First off, we’ve got a pair of Eastern Block bruisers going at it in several roll racing heats. In the first heat, it looks like the Mercedes is going to eat the BMW up but the BMW comes back in the last two runs. Then you’ve got the Mercedes versus the mighty Viper. Let’s face it – there ain’t too many cars that are going to get by the Snake in a roll race. The BMW is of the legendary M3 variety and has Read More

Texas Dig Racing – Taking it to the Streets

December 14th, 2015

If you want to experience real fun, try stepping out for a night of street racing down “Mexico” way. Some of the baddest cars in the west showed up for a full night of racing. The Mistress twin turbocharged Chevy II rolled out and so did Barefoot Ronnie (from Discovery Channel’s Street Outlaws series) in his beautiful Yenko Nova. The atmosphere was electric and the racing was amazing as these competitors were anxious to square-off with whatever was in the next lane. There is a LSX 6.0-liter powered Mustang with an 80-millimeter turbo and a dual shot of methanol, a Read More

Cadillac CTS-V Battles Dodge Viper on the Street

October 29th, 2015

In the real world of street racing Caddys don’t rub fenders with Vipers – or do they? In this clip at least one Cadillac not only takes on an SRT Viper but leaves it in its tracks. This video consists of two passes. In the first pass, the Viper has the go-go juice turned up to 1,100 psi and he gives the CTS-V a decent run.  In the second run, the Viper turns the laughing gas down to 900 psi and only puts forth a paltry effort, at best. Both cars are equipped with a healthy dose of NOS from Read More

Twin Turbo Viper Runs 8.39-Second Quarter-Mile

October 16th, 2015

This video begins with a no B.S. dyno run that offers proof of this Viper’s horsepower availability. This thing turned out 1,724-horsepower at the rear-wheels with the boost dialed down to 30 psi (maximum boost capacity is estimated at 35 to 36 psi). After pushing the dyno to its utter limits, the guys at D3 take the Snake out to the track for some electronically timed 1/4-mile passes. D3 has a reputation for producing 8-second cars and this clip certainly doesn’t tarnish it. This Mopar is equipped with a Greg Good racing engine, upgraded cylinder head fasteners, Pro EFI fuel Read More
