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

Street Racing Breakup Camo Vette vs DriverMods Viper

September 25th, 2015

If you love street racing, then you’ve gotta see this video. It features an awesome sounding supercharged (centrifugal) Corvette in breakup camouflage. He is hooking up with the DriverMods Viper T/A and a red Corvette for a monumental evening of street racing. The Camo ‘Vette is equipped with a forged low compression motor with PRC cylinder heads and a ECS 1500 supercharger with a methanol injection. The transmission and rear differential have been upgraded, as well. Power is estimated at 800whp. We know the DriverMods Viper well. It has been tuned by Lund Racing, it has tons of aftermarket bolt-ons Read More

Viper TA Takes On 1000HP Nissan GT-R

September 17th, 2015

The DriverMod Viper TA is unleashed! That’s right – it is not chained to a dyno this time – it’s taking it to the streets against another radically modified beast of an automobile. Aptly named “Godzilla”, the Nissan GT-R is one of the most feared machines on the street. As a bonus, they are running against a stock Honda CBR1000 motorcycle. As seen a few days ago on DragTimes, the Viper TA engine is stock with an intake manifold upgrade, exhaust headers, and a 250 shot of Nitrous Outlet giggling gas. It is riding on CCW C12 racing wheels and Read More

Street Racing: Supercharged Mustang vs. SRT Viper T/A

June 30th, 2015

For as long as there have been muscle cars, Ford and Dodge have been battling on the street. Smaller, lighter, small block powered Mustangs going head to head against larger, more powerful Dodges with massive big block HEMI engines, are what made street racing what it is today. This video shows a 2015 Ford Mustang GT with a blown 5.0-liter V8. The supercharger is a 2.3-liter VMP Gen2. Fuel is delivered via a Lund Racing Tuner using Injector Dynamics ID1000 fuel injectors, a stock fuel pump, and a booster. American Racing Headers and exhaust removes spent gases and a McLeod racing Read More

Turbocharged Minivan Edges GT-R and Viper in the 1/4-Mile

June 2nd, 2015

What would you do with a broken or abandoned all-wheel drive 1993 Eagle Summit minivan? How about doing what one New Englander did – throwing in a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4G63 four-cylinder engine and heading for the drag strip. After that, see if you can get paired up with a couple of iconic performance machines, like the Nissan GT-R and the Dodge Viper. That’s right Godzilla and the legendary Snake. While the Eagle Summit minivan (manufactured by Mitsubishi) is not known for performance prowess (neither is any other minivan, for that matter), it is moderately light and the four-wheel drivetrain hooks Read More
