Fun Down Under – 6-Second Mazda RX-3

This thing is an angry beast! These Aussies yanked the rotary motor out of a Mazda RX-3 and stuck in an LS package. Focused around a 7.0-liter mill (alloy connecting rods and All Pro aluminum cylinder heads), this twin turbocharged (Turbosmart) setup is capable of turning consistent 7-second elapsed times. Today, the crew will attempt to dip into the sixes. Castle Hill Performance does the heavy lifting on this tiny monster and it is tuned by SCF Race Cars. Fresh off the trailer, the RX-3 runs a (personal best) 6.95-seconds @ 201 mph! In a solo run, everything went absolutely Read More

There are also a few imports and some bikes to pretty things up a bit. It all begins with a 60 mph-roll between a 1,200hp Nissan GT-R (SPD 1400 turbo kit) and a twin turbo Cadillac CTS-V. After the lineup; the Nissan lets him have it. The Nissan rolls out against a 1,000hp (nitrous) Dodge Challenger Hellcat. Once again, the GT-R jumps out and gaps the Mopar FTW! Next, the Read More

Jason took the supercharged 6.2-liter mill Read More

10-Second Classic GMC Pickup Diesel

by: Ricardo Perez It’s Rocky Mountain Race Week. All the elite street and strip racers are on-hand for this week-long test of man and machine. Despite all the unique rides at this event, no one is expecting a ‘70s GMC pickup (short bed) to be posting 10-second quarter-mile passes in the 140 mph range. They sure as heck ain’t expecting to see it belching coal over the roof. Running a built LBZ (2006/2007) Duramax diesel 6.6-liter, with a compound turbo setup, this classic GMC is posting consistent 10s and dipping into the 9s on occasion. The combination is good for 1,189hp Read More
