1600WHP Mustang Cobra Versus the World

Tony’s twin turbo Mustang Cobra is one of the most capable street cars north of the Mason-Dixon line. Without discrimination, Tony has intimidated competitors on the street and strip for nearly two-decades. This outstanding Cobra has whipped turbo street bikes and posted consistent 8-second quarter-mile elapsed times. It’s an all-around street beast. Under the hood of Tony’s 2003 Ford Mustang Cobra is a fully built 4.6-liter modular motor from Ford. A pair of Precision 6870 turbochargers force copious amounts of air into the snake and the transmission is a GM TH400 automatic. Maximum output is 1600hp to the rear wheels. Read More

The Original BIG RED Camaro is famous for taking on almost every kind of racing imaginable. From No Prep Drag Racing to Hill Climbing, this guy has done it all in his 1967 Chevy Camaro. He’s even gone 266 mph on the Bonneville Salt Flats – but let’s address the elephant on the room. Wait a minute! That ain’t no elephant. It’s a giant wing on the back of the BIG RED Camaro (biggest wing that I’ve ever seen). Get this: It’s functional too. As one might expect, the BIG RED Camaro uses a variety of engines according to the Read More

Eighties Drag Race – Ferrari Testarossa vs. Lamborghini Countach

Taking it old school, we join legendary British car enthusiasts James May and Richard Hammond (The Grand Tour) as they conjure up a drag race between a pair of eighties era supercars. Shall we go out to the track and find these two old blokes as they prepare to get their race on in these vintage sports cars? As these two codgers tow the line, they consider the potential for catastrophic failure to this pair of classic cars (from a sudden start/drag race). After some brief calculations, it is determined that a rolling start is preferred. Smart move. The 1982 Read More

1100HP Diesel Chevy C-10 Shortbed Takes on Drag Week

As the Mecca of drag racing enthusiasts, Hot Rod Drag Week attracts some of the most capable straight-line machines in the world. This video focuses on some of those vehicles. Day 4 of Drag Week finds us looking at a diesel powered 1980 Chevrolet C-10 shortbed pickup with a pair of small turbochargers. This truck is rolling coal like it’s going out of style and leaving a ton of rubber on the track during his burnouts. The sawed-off truck cuts a clean light and totes the front out past the tree. He leaves a thick cloud of black smoke behind Read More

Old School Drag Racing – 1970 GTO Judge vs. 1969 Dodge Super Bee

Here come the judge. This video documents a drag race between two bone stock classic muscle cars. Both these cars – with their selected options – were relatively rare. The Pontiac is 1/627 and the Dodge is 1/661. Shall we have a closer look at these vintage steeds? The 1969.5 Dodge Super Bee A12 was equipped with a 440 cubic-inch motor fed by a trio of 2-barrel carbs. Maximum output was modestly rated at 390HP and 490 lb.-ft. of torque. The massive V8 is mated to a 3-speed Torqueflite automatic transmission and the final drive gears in the rear end Read More

1400HP Nissan GT-R vs. 1370HP Ford Mustang – Drag Race

Here we go again! This is a time-honored rivalry between a sports car from Japan and some Detroit muscle from the good old USA. Both these cars are twin turbocharged, and both are capable of making approximately 1400WHP. That’s where the similarities end. For instance, one is a V8 and the other is a V6. One is all-wheel drive and the other is rear-wheel drive. One is a purpose-built roll racer and the other is a drag car. With all their differences, this should be an interesting series of races. Let’s begin with the import. The 2017 Nissan GT-R is Read More
