900HP Dodge Challenger Drag Pack with V10 Viper Engine

Obnoxiously loud. Not street legal. Now, you have my undivided attention. Let’s head out to Fusion Luxury Motors to get a look at a special car. This predecessor to the Hellcat is packing plenty of punch – from the factory. Manufactured in 2011, this special build Dodge Challenger Drag Pack car is a race only prototype. It features a massive 8.4-liter V10 SRT Viper engine. The big V10 was rated at 600hp in the Dodge Viper. No factory specs were officially released for the Challenger Drag Pack, but with racing header and other assorted performance goodies, it’s estimated at 900hp. Read More

7-Second Lexus IS300 – 1300HP Turbo 2JZ

We are back to TX2K21 for this one. Tonight, we meet Murda 2J and he brings us up to speed on his incredible Lexus (Toyota) IS300. Even with a stock (not sleeved) engine block, this compact sedan can claim the title for first IS300 to ever post a 7-second quarter-mile (7.8-seconds). The motor is a stock 2JZGE, which is one of the inline 6-cylinder bottom-ends originally used by Lexus. Although the block is essentially stock, the pistons and connecting rods have been replaced with performance parts and hardware. The cylinder head has been upgraded to a 2JZGTE model head.

Drag Racing History – Mickey Thompson’s 427 HEMI Galaxy 500

For some of us, this video will be a journey back to a very different time in racing and hot rod history. It was a time before computers and easily obtainable fuel injection. It was a time when cars not only looked different – they smelled and felt different, too. Cars were big and heavy and 1,000hp seemed like the stuff of fantasy. NASCAR Cup cars only ran about 700hp on a good day. Nevertheless, there is something magical about an old car created for the sole purpose of going from A to B as fast as possible. That’s what Read More

Rolling Coal – Cummins Stuffed Ford Ranger

Like a little black locomotive, that’s Northbound with the hammer down, this Big Tire Ford Ranger is rolling coal like it’s going out of style. This is one of the most unique looking pickups that we have ever seen. What catches your eye? Is it the massive (14-inch wide) slicks on the rear with the skinnies on the front? Maybe it’s the radiator and fans strapped to the roll cage in the bed? Possibly the Cummins badges strategically placed about the exterior? With a best elapsed time of 10.1-seconds @ 136 mph, one would think this truck is pushing 800 Read More

10-Second All Motor Mustang GT – Street Hits

We’re headed back to the Sunshine State tonight where we’ll meet up with Austin Rodriquez and his 2018 Ford Mustang GT at Palm Beach Dyno. Austin has posted a best elapsed time of 10.1-seconds @ 136 mph in the quarter-mile, but tonight he will be taking it to the street for some roll racing hits against a nitrous Chevrolet C5 Corvette and a Nissan GT-R with full bolt-ons running E85 fuel. This stunning Mustang GT has undergone some significant mods, but Austin is yet to include ant type of power-adder. That’s right – no nitrous, no blower and no turbocharger. Read More

Comeback Kid – 1800HP Stick Shift Camaro

This kid has got an incredible story to tell drag racing fans around the world. After posting a personal best ET of 7.48-seconds @ 191 mph at TX2K21, this guy pulled the ‘chute and slammed his bomb-diggity Camaro into the retaining wall on the left. Typically, this would indicate that a driver and race team were through. Lucky for these guys, the competitors at TX2K21 were not having any of that. This rowdy band of gearheads pitched in and removed the damaged front panels, replaced the front spindles and swapped the wheels. With a few more wrinkles in the rear Read More

Big Turbo Little Motor Mustang

So, this video is a little different than the normal huge cubic inch, massive power adder, gas guzzling monster machine chronicle. This clip features a Mustang EcoBoost with a big turbo upgrade. It’s a daily driver, weekend warrior and general street sleeper. The car belongs to Ariel and he’s going to tell us all about it. First, we need to set the foundation. The EcoBoost is a 2.3-liter four-cylinder turbo engine that makes 310hp and 350 lb.-ft. of torque from the factory. In a Mustang, it’s a fun little motor with adequate power for everyday driving. That is especially true Read More
