FWD 1100HP Turbo Acura vs RWD Nitrous Mopar – Drag Race

May 6th, 2021

This is a tale of two very different cars. The first is a turbocharged, front-wheel drive import with a four-cylinder engine. The second is a domestic production, rear-wheel drive car powered by a massive V8 engine with “just a bit” of nitrous. Settle in and let’s see how this one shakes out. On the import side is a 1992 Acura Integra GSR. It has been thoroughly modified with a built (1.9-liter) engine and a big turbo. Maximum output is dyno certified to be 1,100hp. The transmission is a 4-speed automatic and the GSR weighs in at 2,450-pounds. Very little about Read More

Sin City Small Tire Cash Days 2K21

May 5th, 2021

The saying is that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Not so true if you’re talking about elite level street racing. It all goes out for the world to see. Here’s a prime example. The Sin City Small Tire Cash Days are a single elimination, winner-take-all affair with ten entrants and a $250 cash buy in. The rules are typical. You can’t jump early. You can’t be first to cross the center line and you have to beat your opponent to the finish line to win. Burnouts are water only. Ready for some hot street racing action? Up first Read More

The Street Racing Channel crew are coming at you from Highway 42 Dragway in West Salem, Ohio. The Rewind, sponsored by D Team Racing and Stripper Glitter Traction Compound, is an old school, eighth-mile, No Prep, drag racing experience designed with the hardcore competitor in mind.

Nevertheless, he is right in the middle of things getting all the best footage. In Round One of the Read More

Dragstrip Grudge Racing – Camaro ZL1 vs. Hellcat Redeye

May 1st, 2021

Here, we have some good old “call out for the ball out” grudge racing from the local dragstrip. Featured are a pair of modern-day production muscle cars that frankly put sixties-era muscle cars to shame. Without further ado, let’s get down to where the rubber meets the road. In the right lane is the 17-year old Candyman (due to his resemblance to a young John Candy) and his 2019 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. The ZL1 is powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 rated at 650hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. The transmission is a 10-speed automatic and the Candyman Camaro has Read More

Big Time No Prep Drag Racing

April 29th, 2021

With hard hitting No Prep drag racing kings like the Birdman and Mike Murillo on hand, you wouldn’t expect a Pontiac Grand Am from South Dakota to have much of a chance. Not so fast! You see, Rodney Weisser and his bright red Poncho are geared up to win the whole thing – and they aren’t intimidated by anyone. Take a gander at this red rocket. Rodney has ample reason to be confident. His Pontiac is powered by a methanol burning big block Chevy motor with a ProCharger. In its current state, Rodney estimated that his car is churning out Read More

9-Second Twin Turbo C8 Chevrolet Corvette by FuelTech

April 27th, 2021

Intending to set the World Record for Quickest C8 Corvette, Anderson Dick (founder and owner of FuelTech) showed up at the Outlaw Street Car Reunion (OSCR) at the Virginia Motorsports Park over the weekend. His car – a twin turbocharged C8 Chevrolet Corvette – is fresh off a record setting dyno run in which the maximum output for a C8 Corvette was reset (1,075whp). A native resident of Brazil, Anderson made his way north after updating his car with a Dodson clutch kit and a set of Belak rear wheels wrapped in Mickey Thompson ET Street radials. Under the hood Read More

Import Extravaganza – TX2K21 Streets

April 23rd, 2021

  When these gearheads are not laying it down on the track, they take all the smack talk, posturing and competitive spirit to the streets (of Mexico). Unfortunately, even the best laid plans sometimes come unraveled. When this TX2K21 Cash Days fell apart, these racers set out on a spontaneous evening of grudge racing and call outs. The imports were the feature attraction, and they did not disappoint. First up is a contest between an all-wheel drive K20 turbo hatchback Honda Civic and a – hold up, the cops arrive and shut the whole thing down. That necessitates a change Read More

JJ Da Boss Zip Tie Chevy II Gets ProCharger Upgrade

April 22nd, 2021

Almost anyone who follows (amateur) drag racing will recognize the Zip Tie Chevrolet owned and operated by JJ Da Boss of the Memphis Street Outlaws group. Zip Tie became an instant fan favorite when JJ left the street during a race and took a brief detour on the sidewalk. In typical Boss fashion, JJ carried out the harrowing maneuver as if sidewalk surfing was a daily activity. Once the episode of Street Outlaws aired, JJ and Zip Tie were drag racing celebrities. That brings us to the video. Zip Tie – like most of the Memphis Street Outlaws’ rides – Read More

9-Second Old School Pontiac Grand Prix

April 20th, 2021

With a best elapsed time of 9.487-seconds @ 144 mph in the quarter-mile, this is not your typical seventies J-Body. Believe me when I tell you, this car comes from a time when pollution concerns were huge, and horsepower was largely overlooked. The factory 1976 Pontiac Grand Prix, with a 6.6-liter small block engine, was capable of producing only 170hp and 310 lb.-ft. of torque. However, what the Poncho lacked in horsepower, it more than made up for in style and comfort. Despite being a coupe, the Grand Prix offered ample space – even for a very large man. Owner Read More
