6-Second GTO Chills Ice Cream Cruise

With the recent advancements in power-adder technology, it is rarer than hen’s teeth to see a competitive naturally aspirated (N/A) car at the drag strip. It is even more uncommon to see one with a steel body that can run consistent (low) 6-second quarter-mile elapsed times and dominate the class. This fourth-generation GTO is currently powered by a massive 7.4-liter LSx engine that produces approximately 760hp. A Powerglide transmission helps to send those ponies to a narrowed Ford 9-inch rear differential. All the way down the line, this Goat is built on an old school model with the latest components Read More

Track Tested – Nissan GT-R vs. Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R

There’s more at stake in this track battle than bragging rights. Nissan has been producing the GT-R for more than a decade. Now, it must defend its very name from a powerful upstart and a different kind of GT R. The 10-year-old Nissan GT-R has built quite a reputation for itself. It has become a fearsome competitor on both street and track, and is a bargain (at $105 – $130K) when compared with other supercars of its ilk. It is powered by a twin turbocharged 3.8-liter V6. In factory trim, it makes approximately 565hp and accelerates from 0 to 60 Read More

It’s all over too quickly – for fans and spectators, that is. Hot Rod Drag Week 2017 is coming to a close and the weary competitors are eager to get to the final track (Cordova International Raceway) after their 1,000 excursion. Traditionally, the final day of Drag Week means that racers and crews can put more power to the pavement (not that they haven’t already been pushing the envelope).

This outstanding video documents a new world record by the most advanced supercar on the planet.
