Upsets Galore – Rocky Mountain Race Week Final Day

June 27th, 2022

This is it! It’s the final day of RMRW and there’s a shootout brewing. With most of the classes already decided, the best-of-the-best were still up in the air. Super-fast rides like Alex Taylor’s ShoeBox Chevy, Cleetus McFarland’s twin turbo El Camino (Mullet) and Jason Hurley’s Meltdown II Firebird were looking for glory. The Index Racing format was thrown out for a No Time Shootout strategy that would pit some of the baddest vehicles in the country in head-to-head competition. It’s going to be pandemonium! First to the starting line was Mullet against the Gen II Camaro of Jim Parkison. Read More

Street Outlaws’ Monza Gets a New Daily Driver

June 23rd, 2022

Those of you who live and breathe street (dig) racing, will remember Monza from the Street Outlaws Show on the Discovery Channel. Despite being called Monza, he piloted a bodacious Gen II Camaro that was in constant contention for the number one spot on “America’s List”. With a new show on the horizon, the 405 crew are preparing more street-oriented steeds to energize ratings. This is a first look at what Monza has prepared. Everyone loves a G-Body. Whether it’s a Grand Prix (which this is), a Monte Carlo or a Malibu; G-bodies are wide and roomy. They can handle Read More

Dodge Viper V10 vs. Nissan 350Z Tesla Conversion – Drag Race

June 23rd, 2022

All the indicators say that this is going to be a wild one! We have the imports represented (sort of) by a Nissan 350Z with a Tesla running gear. The domestics are represented by a Dodge Viper. Are you ready for this? The 2006 Nissan 350Z has been retrofitted with a Liberty Walk 370Z body treatment. It looks wildly futuristic. Making the rear wheels spin is a Tesla large drive unit (from a Tesla Model S) in place of the engine. Between the giant lithium-ion batteries and the large drive motor, this thing turns out 468-kilowatts which is the equivalent Read More

Rocky Mountain Race Week – Day One – 7-Second Cars Abound

June 20th, 2022

Another year has flown by and it’s time once again for that drag racing extravaganza known as Rocky Mountain Race Week. If you’re not familiar with this event, check out the rules. Despite being a grueling ordeal, it’s lots of fun and lifelong friendships are formed. Let’s get to the racing! Seems only fitting to start with pretty Alex Taylor in her fast 1955 Chevy. She had that shoebox Chevy in rare form on the first day, posting an impressive run of 7.32-seconds @ 196 mph (before breaking her rear end). With a fresh differential in the Chevy, Alex was Read More

World’s Fastest C8 Corvette by FuelTech

June 17th, 2022

So, this here is the world’s fastest (quarter-mile) C8 Chevrolet Corvette anywhere. As one might imagine, this is not your run of the mill Chevrolet Corvette. It has been radically modified by the experts at FuelTech in Atlanta. Of course, the C8 version is the first mid-engine Corvette ever produced. It rolls off the assembly line with a naturally aspirated 6.2-liter LS engine that can generate 495hp and 495 lb.-ft of torque. The maniacs at FuelTech got ahold of this one and went stark, raving mad. They added a pair of turbochargers (up high where they can be seen) and Read More
