While we got rained out last week and weather wasn’t looking good for this week either, we headed out to Palm Beach International Raceway to give the all new Tesla Model S P100D Ludicrous it’s first real world test down the 1/4 mile drag strip. Luckily the weather held and we got some awesome races in. To make things interesting we lined up the Tesla vs a Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 and based on previous runs with the Huracan and some Racelogic VBOX tests with the P100D, we knew it was going to be a close race.  Behind the wheel of the Read More

Whoa! Better than a Bugatti? There are very few cars that make that claim but that’s the scoop on this Galpin Auto Sports (GAS) modified Ford Mustang GT500. At a sticker price that is less than a quarter of the Veyron, this pony car might just be worth a second look.

The increasing availability of turbochargers to the sport of street racing has forever changed the face of what is arguably the most popular motorized sport in America.

It opens up with a majestic Porsche 911 Turbo S, with an upgraded turbocharger, a high performance intake manifold, high performance Read More

Chi-Town Heat – Roll Racing on the Street

September 6th, 2016

If there is one thing that they can do in Chi-town, it’s throw-down on the streets. Naturally, when we got a chance to check out what kind of roll racing Chicago (Mexico) has to offer; we loaded up our wagons and hit the dusty trail. To say the least, we were not disappointed. On hand was a 2016 BMW X5 M (yes, an SUV) powered by a 4.4-liter twin turbocharged V8 with aftermarket bolt-ons and a software upgrade. It’s good for about 800whp. There’s a 2003 Porsche 911 Turbo that has a modified intercooler, exhaust headers, and high performance mufflers. Read More
