Chi-town Heat – 2300HP 1966 Chevelle

Attention all racing fans; be on the lookout for a stunning 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle. The slick blue car is on escape from the show car circuit and was last seen running circles around the competition at King of the Streets Chicago. The suspect should be considered armed and dangerous to other street race cars. Known for its beautiful hue and massive (14-71) blower protruding from the hood, it is packing a 572 cubic-inch big block engine and making about 2,300hp. At just over 3,400-pounds, this beast is often believed to be much heavier than her actual weight. She has been Read More

9-Second Daily Driver – Cadillac CTS-V

You’ve got to love a daily driver that you can take to the track and run 9-second passes all weekend. All it takes is a little modification and a lot of nitrous. The Cadillac CTS-V is the epitome of performance and luxury in a single automobile. In stock trim, it is equipped with a 6.2-liter supercharged engine that makes 556hp and 551 lb.-ft. of torque. It can get from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6-seconds and it has an electronically controlled top speed of 200 mph. Of course, it has all the amenities including air conditioning, leather seating, and premium Read More

Nitrous Injected 6.0-liter Porsche

This is what I call making the best out of a bad situation. When this gentleman’s Porsche Carrera blew up the engine, he was faced with paying a heavy price to replace it with (even) a used Porsche mill. It’s a good thing for him that (only) one aftermarket manufacturer is offering an adapter kit that allows for an LS engine swap. You use the factory Porsche transmission and bolt in the Chevy V6 or V8 of your choice. You would never know that this dreamy little German import is packing a 6.0-liter LQ9 punch. Yes, the engine is from Read More

Highway Rolls – Corvette ZR1 vs. Mustang GT500 vs. Supra

That is correct – you can run ‘em 3-wide down south of the border. This clip brings us three amazing rides in serious roll racing action. Now, for my taste, I had rather get it on from a dead stop (dig racing). Still, I have to admit that easing up beside another fast car and just letting it all hang-out on the highway (in Mexico) is pretty intense. Speaking of intense: The Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is the flagship of GM. It rolls off the assembly line as a prolific street beast that seems destined for roll racing. With a 6.2-liter Read More

Corn Field Cash Days

Being born and raised in an inner city environment and having the good sense to move out to the country, I know a little about both urban and rural life. One of those things that I know is that city dwellers and country folk both love a good street race. That’s why some big time street machines showed up for this corn-fed dig racing showdown between the furrows. The very whisper of Cash Days usually brings the competitors out in droves but the weather in Nebraska (Mexico) can be a little unforgiving. Traction is already at a premium on the Read More

426 C.I.D. HEMI Build and Dyno

The 426 HEMI engine is a true icon of the muscle car era. It was an option in such memorable automobiles as the 1955 Chrysler 300M, the 1969 Plymouth Barracuda, the 1970 Dodge Super Bee, and the 1970 Plymouth Superbird. Nick Paranitis, of Nick’s Garage in Quebec, Canada has made a name for himself by building and selling HEMI engines. Nicks Mopar engines can be found in some of the most critically recognized Dodge, Chrysler, and Plymouth restorations in the world. This video introduces us to Nick and documents his breaking point. You see, Nick is plum fed up with Read More

New Half-Mile GT-R Top Speed Record

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

New Lamborghini S – Test Track

When Lamborghini introduced the Aventador in 2011, it set the world of high-performance sports cars on its ear. Less than a decade removed and the same Aventador was becoming a bit mundane. It was to be expected – with recent advances in speed and technology. Offerings from McLaren, Ferrari, Porsche, and Bugatti – just to name a few – have had the big Lamborghini floundering for a portion of the premium market share. Not being a car company to suffer in mediocrity, Lamborghini has recently introduced the all-new Aventador S; seen before your very eyes in this video. The S Read More
