October 23rd, 2021

The crew at Tire Slayer Studios is set to engage in a dream build. In conjunction with Chevy Performance, these guys have just three-weeks to put together a 1,000hp Gen III Camaro build. So, what are your thoughts? Twin turbochargers? A ProCharger? Supercharger? How about nitrous? Nope! These gearheads are going naturally aspirated. What’s that you say? How can that be? That’s where Chevy Performance comes in. They provided Tire Slayer with their first 1,000hp crate motor. This is a 632 cubic-inch big block (iron) featuring four-bolt main caps and a forged rotating assembly (crank, rods and pistons) with a Read More

October 13th, 2021

Greetings drag racing fans and welcome to Irwindale Speedway in sunny California for a cash (and tacos) grudge race between Mike (Alameda Boys) and Jeff the Realtor. Sounds like a rowdy bunch, indeed. Mike is rolling in his sharp Ford Mustang Fox Body. This pony car is powered by a carbureted small block (Ford) with a kit of nitrous. She’s making plenty of torque and Mike is confident that he can come out of the hole hard enough to ensure that his pocket will be full of cash and his belly will be full of tacos before the night is Read More

LSA Trans Am vs Boosted Coyote Mustang – $3900 Street Dig Race

October 7th, 2021

It’s big money street racing from Southern California (Mexico). This video gives us an up-close look at the Cuban Coyote Ford Mustang and the Boosted Bird Pontiac Trans Am. These are two serious competitors looking for a serious payday. Let’s join the action. Boosted Bird has been outfitted with a supercharged 6.2-liter LSA motor. This is the power plant used in many late model GM performance vehicles (such as the Cadillac CTS-V, Corvette ZR1 and Camaro ZL1). In stock trim, this engine can pump out 650hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. I bet Boosted Bird ain’t stock. The bright blue Read More

October 4th, 2021

Please excuse me for taking a minute to get over this all-electric sedan whipping everyone at the dragstrip – well, not everyone but you see what I’m saying. A pair of Plaid sedans are featured in this clip. Neither have undergone any form of weight reduction and both are on stock Pirelli tires. The blue Plaid draws an 800hp Camaro ZL1 for the first (roll) race. The Camaro gets the initial jump before the Tesla “swooshes” around him to take the win. The result is a top speed of 153 mph (161 mph just past the finish line) for the Read More
