New GT-R Half-Mile World Record

The place is Texas and the event is WannaGoFast2015. The Nissan GT-R is a familiar one. It is campaigned by T1 Racing Development and the contest in question is the standing half-mile. You don’t want to miss this clip because it includes a world record setting pass (half-mile GT-R) at 235.6 mph. This shatters the previous record and narrowly misses the overall record held by Underground Racing. Propulsion for the current record holding coupe comes from a 3.8-liter stock displacement V6 engine with a custom billet crankshaft, custom billet pistons, and aluminum connecting rods. Forced air induction is achieved using Read More

Atomic Fusion Vette Makes 6-Second Pass at 220MPH

Mark Carlyle is tearing up the record books with his beautiful burnt orange twin-turbo Corvette, called Atomic Fusion. This video shows him crushing it during the Import vs. Domestic World Cup Finals at the Maryland International Raceway. He also holds the world’s record for the LSX Drag Radial 1/4-Mile Class. Powering the stylish Corvette is an all aluminum 7.0-liter Chevy small block with GRP, Ross, and Callie’s internals and All-Pro cylinder heads. Forced air induction is handled using a pair of Garrett GTX5518R turbochargers with Tial wastegates and blow-off valves. A Big Stuff 3 fuel management system keeps all the Read More

Head-to Head – 2015 Camaro Z28 vs. 2016 Shelby GT350R

For as long as the term “Muscle Car” has been a part of the English language, Camaros and Mustangs have been squaring off on the black-top. Ford loyalists will quickly make you aware that the Mustang started it all in 1965. The original pony car smashed sales records and became an instant classic. Chevrolet quickly answered with a tremendously popular sports coupe (called the Camaro) for the 1967 model year. When asked what the name “Camaro” meant GM designers said, “It’s a beast that eats Mustangs” – and so the battle ensued and continues until this day. Check it out Read More

America’s Fastest Scion

Get a load of Pure Automotive Performance’s lime green FR-S campaigning at the World Cup Finals in Maryland. This is one artfully crafted drag car. It ends up with a North America record setting 9.2-second quarter-mile run at 150 mph. Under the hood of this FR-S you’ll find a turbocharged 3.0-liter 2JZ (Toyota) engine being force fed copious amounts of air via a Precision 67-millimeter turbocharger. The custom crafted intercooler and piping are immaculate on this ride and so is the interior. Pure Automotive certainly knows how to put the nuts and bolts together. Power for this fantastic looking ride Read More

Twin-Turbo 5.3-liter Nova Runs 8-Second Quarter-Mile

Nathan Shaw of Lakeville, Minnesota has built himself a great little street/strip car. It has a dandy paint job that appears black under certain light conditions and green in others. The car is a 1971 Chevrolet Nova and it was on display during One Guy’s Garage Drag Week; more importantly, he laid down an 8.63 1/4-mile pass @ 157.91 mph. Nathan’s Nova is well equipped with an all-aluminum 2008 5.3-liter Chevy block with Wiseco pistons, Callie’s connecting rods, a stock crankshaft, ARP hardware, and TFS 220 cylinder heads. Air induction is of the forced variety and features a pair of Read More

Turbo 2JZ-GTE Equipped Mustang

What the …? This great looking Ford Mustang doesn’t have a built 429 Cobra Jet and there’s no turbocharged 5.3-liter LS motor. Instead, this little American beauty has a junkyard Toyota Supra 2JZ-GTE thrashing about under the hood. What’s even more interesting is that this thing made it all the way to the semi-final round of the Kansas City F-Body Event. The 2JZ-GTE is an inline 6-cylinder and the one in this pony car is bone stock. A massive 76-millimeter turbocharger does most of the work. It is accompanied by a Pro EFI controller and power is transferred to the Read More

Drag Race – Porsche 918 vs Stunt Plane

Have you ever seen a car that could whip a plane in a race? Well, this video shows you a Porsche that has everything it takes to gut it out against a plane and win by a nose. This is a close contest that showcases this revolutionary little stunt plane (called the Christen Eagle II) performing a handful of aerobatic stunts, then getting spanked by a ground-bound craft. The Porsche 918 is an innovative supercar in its own right. It features a 4.6-liter V8 engine that produces 608hp and a pair of electric motors that make an additional 279hp and Read More

Supercharged Lamborghini Huracan

Momma always said, “Nobody likes a whiner” but Mom, there are times when a good whine can be quite pleasant. For instance, when this killer white Lamborghini Huracan rounds the bend and you hear a startling whine as he jams on the accelerator and plants the rubber to the pavement. That whine is from a Eaton TVS2300 roots type supercharger sitting atop a 5.2-liter V10 engine. The entire package is produced by VF Engineering from Anaheim, California. This Lambo is also equipped with a 6061 aluminum intake manifold with an internal bypass and high-flow dual throttle bodies with high-flow MAF Read More
