Big Block Swapped Jaguar – 1,000HP Street Sleeper Sedan

Now this is a very bad kitty. The next time that you pull alongside a grandpa in a Jaguar sedan, use your best judgement before you romp on the throttle and challenge him to a race. You may well run up against a crazy car enthusiast like John. This grandpappy has taken a 1970 Jaguar XJ6 and mutated it into a genuine street beast. Under the hood of this “silver bullet” is a 540 cubic-inch Dart motor. That means an aluminum block with a forged crankshaft and pistons, along with powder connecting rods. The cylinder heads are custom fabricated. Everything Read More

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

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

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.

Dragstrip Grudge Racing – Camaro ZL1 vs. Hellcat Redeye

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

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
