Tire Roasting V8 Powered Nissan 240Z

May 17th, 2024

Here’s another one of those V8 swapped imports that gearheads appreciate so much. This time it’s a Datsun (Nissan) with a domestic flair – and running gear. Let’s join Stevie (from S&S Motorsport) and Shawn (AutotopiaLA) as they give us all the details of this tire roasting machine. This build began as a bone stock 1972 Datsun 240Z (in lime green). If you’re thinking that something doesn’t look quite right, it’s because the body has been upgraded with custom fender flares (4-inch front and 3-inch rear). No rivets here. These flares are sculpted and welded beautifully. The exterior is loaded Read More

Roll Racing All-Nighter – Cars From Multiple Continents

May 16th, 2024

These gearheads are throwing down on the interstate (in Mexico). Cars from all over the planet have converged on a single strip of blacktop to see who is the baddest roll racer around. Get ready for some white-knuckle action in the cool night air. Our first competitor is an Audi RS3. It’s tuned to burn E85 and equipped with a full accoutrement of high-performance bolt-ons. The RS3 will be taking-on a BMW M3 with an upgraded exhaust system and an E50 tune. When these bruisers get wound-up, it sounds like a swarm of angry bees. Anyhow, Audi for the win. Read More

Drag Race – Chevrolet C8 Corvette Z06 vs. Ford GT

May 15th, 2024

This drag race is about as all-American as apple pie, baseball and lemonade. Thing is, it takes place across the pond in the United Kingdom.

As the latest iteration of the iconic Corvette segment, the C8 features many innovative options. First and foremost is the mid-mounted naturally aspirated 5.5-liter V8 engine.

May 10th, 2024

What’s better than a tiny import coupe with a domestic V8? Well, you could add a supercharger. If that isn’t enough, you could trick the body out with a custom widebody kit. When all the nuts are tight and the bolts are torqued, you might have a street stallion like the one that Juan built. Let’s get a closer look. Under the hood is a 5.3-liter LS motor from a 2001 Chevrolet Camaro. It has been fortified with a forged crankshaft, a BTR camshaft, Keith Black pistons and ARP fasteners throughout. This small block V8 can handle up to 1,800hp. Read More

With that in mind, let’s get down to where the rubber meets the road – in Mexico. Immediately following the driver’s meeting, the lone Tesla P100 D Plaid was matched up against Carole Baskin in his Ford F-150 with a big block motor and twin turbochargers. The all-wheel drive (electric) Tesla took the early advantage and won by a car length over the rear-wheel drive pickup that failed Read More
