Lightweight Tesla Tames the Street

July 21st, 2017




It has taken many years for me to realize that, when it comes to street (and No-Prep) racing, consistency is the key. Right now, there is not a mass produced vehicle that brings a better balance of power and consistency than the all-electric Tesla P100D. First of all; the words lightweight and Tesla may be a misrepresentation. You see, the P100D weighs in at a skosh less than 2.5-tons in factory trim. Our feature car has undergone a certain degree of weight reduction but still tips the scales at a rotund 4,500-pounds. The lithium-ion powered motors on each end of Read More






2.000HP 1965 Chevrolet C10 Pickup

July 21st, 2017




This fantastic looking 1965 Chevy C10 is being purpose-built to rule the street racing scene in the hometown of a guy named Chris Red – something or other. At the heart of this beast is a 400 cubic-inch, LS based, Dart Racing block. In order to make the LS durable enough to withstand this massive amount (2,187hp @ 6,900 RPM)) of horsepower, Steve Morris Engines has recently gone through the engine and they are currently in the process of tuning it (with owner, Chris R.) in their state-of-the-art dyno facility. It has a specially ground hydraulic roller camshaft with a Read More






Drag Race – Aventador SV vs. 911 Turbo S

July 20th, 2017




What’s not to love about a drag race between a pair of supercars? Nothing – especially if the two cars in question are the Lamborghini Aventador SV and the Porsche 911 Turbo S. As far as we know, the feature cars are in stock trim and are driven by their respective owners. They (the cars, at least) are pretty evenly matched and this should make for an interesting series of contests. In an effort to establish exactly which of these two elite automobiles is superior, this clip actually documents multiple drag racing and roll racing runs. You don’t want to Read More






1000HP NSX Takes-On GT-Rs and Bikes

July 19th, 2017




If you enjoy roll racing on the highway (of Mexico), then you will love this video. It features a highly modified Acura NSX rolling up against several other radically enhanced import coupes as well as a couple of a high performance motorcycles. The aluminum bodied, mid-engine NSX was manufactured by Honda. The first generation (1990 – 2005) models were sold with an all-aluminum VTEC 3.0-liter V6 engine. It had the capacity to produce only 252hp. In order for our feature car to be competitive in the street racing world, the V6 was extracted and a (more durable) 2.0-liter K20 four-cylinder Read More






700HP 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS – Track Testing

July 13th, 2017




This is a unique and well produced video that takes you inside the 2018 Porsche GT2 RS. You are sucked into the functional air intake, through one of the turbochargers, into the engine, and spit out the tailpipe. It’s awesome! Porsche recently unveiled their most powerful and most expensive version of the GT2 RS during one of the most prestigious annual automotive gatherings in existence. In true Porsche style, the car was not simply put on static display but driven aggressively on a closed track. The Goodwood Festival of Speed (Sussex, England) was treated to an awesome display of speed Read More






650HP BMW M5 – Street Rolls

July 12th, 2017




I just love a luxury car that can pull its weight in a street race. At the risk of revealing my advanced age, I’ll tell you that the luxury street racer bug first bit me when I built a huge 1978 Cadillac Coupe de Ville and implanted a nitrous injected big block Chevy running gear. It was fun but also heavy. This 2014 BMW M5 is fun but it certainly ain’t that heavy. The Bavarian Motor Works are globally recognized as leaders in the niche of elegant sports cars. The “M” in M5 refers to the BMW Motorsports division which Read More






Tesla Model S P100D vs 1,000HP Toyota Supra Drag and Roll Races

July 10th, 2017




Watch one of the most advanced and quickest cars on the road, the Tesla Model S P100D Ludicrous take on an old school import from Japan with 1,000 HP, a single turbo Toyota Supra.    






950HP AC Cobra – Half-Mile

July 10th, 2017




This car would make Carroll Shelby proud! While purists may complain that it isn’t a factory car – no one can argue that it embodies the racing spirit promoted by the legendary racer and founder of Shelby America. Produced as a (2,400-pound) kit car by Backdraft Racing, this AC Cobra replica is packing a very modern punch. Under the black metal flake hood beats the heart of an all-aluminum modular Coyote racing engine. A Whipple supercharger and a 250-shot nitrous kit provide an extra degree of get-up-and-go. Traction is certainly a problem but breaking loose between gears is a problem Read More






Is FWD Faster? 950HP Civic

July 7th, 2017




With a built 2.0-liter, four-cylinder, engine  and a 6785 twin-scroll turbocharger, this Honda Civic is taking on V8 powered Mustangs and Camaros with reckless abandonment. Not only is he taking them on – he’s whipping them in the majority of his races. Helping the underdog import to surprise all those V8 jockeys is a wild looking custom intake manifold from KS Tuned in Kennewick, WA and dual (2 per cylinder) 2000cc ID fuel injectors. Today the little Honda that could is running in the Banger Class at Chi-Town’s King of the Streets. This is a class set up for cars with Read More






Going Pink – New Women’s Half-Mile Record

July 5th, 2017




What trumps a beautiful blonde in a pink Lambo? That’s an easy one – a beautiful blonde, in a hot pink Lamborghini, breaking a world record for top speed in the half-mile! The backdrop is the Pike’s Peak Airstrip Attack sponsored by ShiftS3ctor and Revolution. This is an event that attracts the best-of-the-best in half-mile and mile cars, including entries like this one from OB Prestige. The shimmering pink car is a 2015 Lamborghini Huracan. In stock trim, the Huracan makes “only” 600hp. It blasts from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.5-seconds. Add a Heffner Performance twin turbocharger setup Read More
