Stock McLaren 720S runs 9.7 @ 147 MPH

While we ran 9.9 @ 141 MPH in our McLaren 720S a few weeks ago, we knew the car would go quicker with some better weather and that just happened in a monster way at a private track rental at ATCO Raceway in New Jersey.   During a private rental an all stock McLaren 720s killed the 1/4 mile in just 9.7 seconds at over 147 MPH with multiple runs to backup the times.  Weather was perfect with 40 degree temps,  low humidity and a DA of -1100 feet. These times make the McLaren 720s a certified Hypercar killer taking down Read More

2020 Tesla Roadster Maximum Plaid Test Drive

Tesla dropped a bombshell at their Semi Truck event with a “one more thing moment” as they revealed the upcoming 2020 Tesla Roadster. I placed a deposit on the $200,000 car while at the event and went for an amazing test ride. Tesla Roadster Specs are nothing short of incredible with 0-60 MPH in just 1.9 seconds, high 8’s in the 1/4 mile, 600+ mile range and a top speed of 250 MPH!

7-Second FWD Turbo Civic

It is hard enough to get a quarter-mile drag car into the sevens when you have an unlimited budget and all the cubic inches that will fit under the hood. Getting (consistently) into the sevens with a limited budget and using a four-cylinder, front-wheel drive platform is simply outstanding. Kudos to Ramey Racing (and friends), who transformed this seriously unimpressive sport coupe into the track taming hurricane that you see in this video. On this day, they earned the honor of preparing the first vehicle in the Sports Front-Wheel Drive Class to post a 7-second elapsed time in the quarter-mile Read More

World’s Quickest Shelby GT500

Welcome to Budds Creek, Maryland and the Maryland International Raceway. Allow me to introduce to you the Devil’s Reject Shelby GT500. It is capable of producing approximately 2,200hp. This video documents a 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 Mustang (highly modified) that has laid claim to the title of World’s Quickest (and Fastest) X275 modular engine Shelby GT500. During the 22nd Annual Haltech World Cup Finals, this pretty Cobra Mustang set in to laying down some consistent six and seven-second elapsed times (at around 200 mph) before dipping down into the sixes to stay. The most dramatic moment came when the Devil’s Read More

Corvette Crazy – Insane Street Hits

Greetings racing fans and welcome to a well organized night of roll racing action on the streets (of Mexico – obviously). This group of competitors is serious about roll racing and it shows in their machinery. The action kicks-off with a little red Corvette (baby you’re much too fast … but I digress …) Z06 that’s packing 434 cubic-inches of LS motor with a 250 shot of nitrous. It is rubbing door handles with a Blue C6 ‘Vette. The blue Chevy  has a 7.0- liter LSX engine with an F1A Procharger. These two cars make multiple passes with the blue Read More

1300HP Aussie UTE Sleeper 

This Aussie UTE (Australian for Sport Utility Vehicle) is perfect for building a sleeper. It is compact and lightweight and it even has a place to haul your cargo. In keeping with the sleeper scenario, this pair of fun-loving Australian race fans crammed a 400-cubic inch LS engine between the fender wells of this right-hand-drive UTE before shipping it over here to compete in Hot Rod Drag Week 2017. As if the motor swap wasn’t dramatic enough, there’s also a pair of 69-millimeter turbochargers in the bed. The vehicle is a 1997 Ford Falcon XH, which weighs in at about Read More

How fast is the updated Tesla Model S 100D from 0-60 MPH and what is Chill Mode?

We test out the updated Tesla Model S 100D and get an very impressive 0-60 MPH time that is WAY quicker than what Tesla states! We also test out the all new “Chill” acceleration mode to see what it’s all about.

Vintage Vette Victimizes Competitors

Rarely do I see a C1 Chevrolet Corvette at the drag strip. The folks who own these classic beauties most often reserve them for car shows and cruising. It is even less common to see a vintage ‘Vette dominating multiple classes (Small Tire and Big Tire) of an event like Street Car Takeover Tucson. Another characteristic that makes this open air Corvette special is the absolute simplicity of the powertrain. In a day of massive power-adders, chemical injections, and specialized racing fuels, this classic ride is propelled by a small block, Chevy LS (V8) engine with a 100hp shot of Read More
