Before y’all go jumping in my crap about this very catchy title, several points are accurate. There is a Coyote 5.0-liter engine in the Mustang (with two-turbochargers) and this hot handful of street racing is coming to you from the streets of Texas, Mexico. The Coyote, on the other hand, is far less than dominant in most of these contests. The Mustang, it seems, is equipped with a lower gear than the Imports and Chevrolets featured in this video, on this night. It grabs the hole shot in most of these roll racing bouts but comes up short towards the Read More
We received the 2017 Ford GT Welcome Guide this morning which goes over the next steps of the purchasing process. We should know in the next couple weeks our build schedule as well as receive the welcome package in the mail which will include color/interior samples as well as all of the options and pricing. We can’t wait of the next steps and to get moving with our new 2017 Ford GT!
While we took delivery of the Tesla Model S P100D a few weeks ago the South Florida daily rainstorms have been thwarting our attempts to run the car down the 1/4 mile. Finally the weather is changing and with the first “cold” front coming through and by “cold” front we mean a few hours of temps in the 70’s, we were able to get some 1/4 mile runs in at Palm Beach International Raceway. Electric car drag racing has come a long way since we started drag racing our P85 about 3 years ago, not only have the 1/4 miles times dropped astoundingly from Read More
Help me out here – this don’t sound like any Honda Civic that I ever heard. No wonder, this thing is running some big cubic inches and a pair of turbos. Lil’ Lutz was turning heads and making tongues wag, during Drag Week 2016, as he produced consistent 8-second passes (at around 160 mph) in this seriously modified Honda Civic. How did he do that? Well, you basically pull off the hood emblem and drive a race car in under it. Seriously, this is only a shell of an ’89 Honda Civic – it ain’t even front wheel drive anymore Read More
I guarantee it! You are going to love this pretty red Nissan GT-R. Not because of its awesome paint job – and it certainly has one – but because it goes up against some heavy hitters and dominates. Maybe it was a cool night. Every racer knows what it’s like to have a night when your car seems to run better than it ever has; better than you could imagine. Possibly it was one of those nights for the red GT-R. It’s inexplicable – in one way it is great and in another ways it sucks. Your car is running Read More
Give me a minute race car enthusiasts; I am having a belly laugh at this British gentleman commentator. His accent tickles my ears and he just said that the Dodge Viper ACR may not be as “dynamically brilliant as some of the cars that come out of Germany” – what a hoot. The latest and greatest (and probably the last) Dodge Viper is purely and simply a race car, designed for speed no matter what the purpose. There may be a few very expensive rides (produced in Germany) that can stand toe-to-toe with this Viper but give me that good Read More
By: Evan Margolis Here’s a sight that’s just about as rare as hen’s teeth (of course you know, hens don’t have any teeth). It is a Honda S2000 sports coupe with a souped up Toyota engine under the bonnet. This hybrid import is equipped to handle the street machines of Texas (a little town down in Mexico), despite having a manual transmission. As stated, the S2000 is running a Toyota power train, including a 2JZ in-line 6-cylinder (built bottom end) engine with a giant turbocharger. The combo is good for about 1,100hp. Things get interesting when two similarly equipped Supra Read More
After getting rained out from the track we decided to give some demo rides in the Tesla Model S P100D, after seeing how well the car could launch in the rain we decided to test out Tesla’s traction control systems and see exactly how quick the car is from 0-60 MPH in the rain.
This little Mazda RX-7 coupe has got me green with envy! Like most of he gear heads that I know, I only dream of getting down into the 7-second realm. This green streak is no longer rotary powered. It has had a heart transplant. Now there is a 555-cubic inch big block Chevrolet engine, with a pair of Garrett 88-millimeter turbochargers, under the hood. This car looks great but it sounds even more amazing. Enduring the experiences of Drag Week 2016, this team is hit with a hydraulic lifter issue that resulted in a new valve train, lifters, and camshaft. Read More
Howdy racing fans and welcome to Heaven’s Landing in Clayton, Georgia for the wannaGOFAST Georgia 1/2-Mile Shootout. On hand are some of the baddest street cars on the planet; ready to lock horns in head-to-head 1/2-mile dig racing action to top speed. Over 3,000 spectators and 135 competitors came out to give it all they had in what proved to be a monumental undertaking. On Saturday, the top speed of the day was 218.77 mph. On Sunday, Sal Patel posted a new track and World Rear-Wheel Drive record of 224.55 mph in his beast of a Dodge Viper. Check it Read More
