Exotic Drag and Roll – McLaren vs Porsche

No. You are not likely to see this drag race produced from your average Saturday night car show. These two cars are about as exotic as they come, and both are terribly expensive. Let’s take a closer look. The Porsche is a 911 GT2 RS which means that it is basically a road race car. It is a rear-engine, rear-wheel drive, hardtop, coupe, with an automatic transmission (7-speed dual-clutch). The engine is a 3.8-liter, twin turbocharged, boxer, and it is capable of producing 700hp. With a 0 to 60 mph time of only 2.7-seconds, this beautiful German entry should be Read More

Cootamundra 2JZ King Supra

Drag racing from Down Under – it’s the Motive Runway Thrash – and we’ve got the King of the six-cylinder Supras in this event. This right-hand drive Toyota Supra is a real beauty. Looking for a new challenge? How about racing in the Rear-Wheel Drive Class, in a car that is capable of producing more than 1,100hp; on an abandoned airstrip? After more than 500-competitors have cut the light at this venue, only approximately ten have posted an elapsed time of less than 10-seconds. This is a tough track. The car is a right-hand drive Toyota Supra. It is powered Read More

Greetings racing fans and welcome to Street Car Takeover, coming to you from Bristol Dragway in Bristol, TN.

Street Racing Cali-Style – Roll and Dig

Let’s head to Northern California (Mexico) – where the beaches are warm and the nights are cool – for some street racing action.

There are supercharged, turbocharged, naturally aspirated, and nitrous enhanced vehicles from the U.S. and abroad. Here we go! The morning session is focused solely on dig racing. The first contest is between a C6 Corvette (408 cubic-inch motor, ProCharger, nitrous – 930hp) and a naturally aspirated Chevy Camaro Z28. Both cars cut the light precisely and the Camaro totes the Read More

Turbo Vette – 2500HP Brute

It’s Street Car Takeover at Thunder Valley and our feature car for this clip is a real bruiser. With a 460 cubic-inch motor and a 118-millimeter turbocharger, this potent Chevy is expected to rule the field if he can get all those ponies to the pavement successfully. In addition to the big LSx engine and turbo, this car has Kook’s stainless exhaust headers, a dry-sump oiling system, and it has been swapped to a solid rear axle setup. Thompson Motorsports built the car, and this is only the fifth or sixth outing. When these guys get the bugs worked out, Read More

735HP 2JZ Lexus SE430 – Street Hits and Dyno

So, one beautiful summer evening you are out trolling the streets (of Mexico) when you come across a Lexus coupe. The driver is giving you the stink eye. You know the one – like he wants to take your cookies. You tell yourself that he wants none, but realize that his little Lexus started life with a V8. The two of you roll onto the freeway for some racing. He pulls alongside and gives you the signal. Before you know it, he’s blown by and all you can see are taillights. Thing is, the car looked stock and you never Read More
