Tesla Model S P100D Ludicrous Plus Testing on a Mustang Dyno

February 20th, 2017

It’s been about 2 years since we dyno tested our Tesla Model S P85D so we figured it was time to head back to see Jack at HPLogic to see how much power our new Model S P100D with Ludicrous Plus is making. The first few tests were coming in pretty low due to the car pulling back power while throwing up some error codes.  The Tesla’s sensors were detecting that the car was not actually moving while the wheels were spinning, causing the car to stop accelerating on the dyno.  The first result was around 450 ft lbs of torque.

Blown Mafia

February 8th, 2017

It seems that everywhere I go, racers are partial to one of the big three power-adders. Some like turbochargers, others love superchargers, and some are loyal to nitrous injection systems. That got me to thinking: why can’t a guy have a combination of two or even all three? It seems that I am not the only sicko following this train of thought. Bradley Gray, owner of Blown Mafia, is in the habit of stacking power-adders and covering them in chrome. All these vehicles run and drive but (the bad news is that) Bradley is not into racing them. He likes Read More

Street Racing Compilation – Roll and Dig

February 8th, 2017

If you like racing on the streets (of Mexico); you will love this video! I almost laughed when I saw a turbocharged Volkswagen Corrado at the outset of this production – then the VW whipped a couple of Corvettes and a Camaro. The Sketchy Vert WS6 Trans Am was a little more than he bargained for but most street racers find that to be the case, All in all, this was not a bad night of roll racing for a four-banger VW. From there, it’s on to some dig racing. There are some pretty average rides to begin the night Read More

Cash Money Street Racing – Camaro ZL1 vs. Tesla P100DL+

January 30th, 2017

This video uses multiple GoPro angles to showcase the astonishing Tesla P100DL+ (signifying a P100D in Ludicrous Plus mode). The action begins with unloading the P100D from a roll back wrecker for a contest of speed called a dig race. Believe it or not, one of the baddest Chevrolets in production is asking for a head start. Even more surprising – he gets it. The Tesla is spotting him the break plus one car length because, despite packing a 650hp supercharged 6.2-liter engine with an upper pulley upgrade, the Camaro is the dramatic underdog. That means that the Chevy will Read More

7-Second Turbo Coyote Mustang

January 27th, 2017

Nothing sounds quite like a Mustang GT. It has a very distinctive throaty rumble that has been music to the ears of car enthusiasts for more than 50-years. The introduction of the all-aluminum, modular Coyote 5.0-liter V8 engine takes this sweet pony-car sound and makes it just a little bit sweeter by reducing overall weight and increasing performance. It is based on the same overhead cam engine block platform as the 4.6-liter but with extra reinforcement. This makes the smaller Coyote engine more durable to withstand the upgrades that will be necessary to produce horsepower levels comparable to that of Read More

Wild Wild West – Arizona Street Racing

January 25th, 2017

Howdy pardner! You’ve heard about the shootout at the O.K. Corral. Well, there’s another fight brewing (out Arizona way) and it also looks to have all the makings of a real shootout. The wide lanes and flat contours of Phoenix (Mexico) make this a fantastic town for roll racing on the interstate. This video showcases an over-confident Neon owner, a pavement pounding Nissan GT-R, a high-powered pack of really impressive street bikes, and some of the baddest Cadillacs (Badilllacs?) on the planet. The action begins with a cocky Dodge Neon SRT-4 getting used by an 1,100hp GT-R. The dodge loses Read More

Nurburg ’Ring-King’ Needs Our Help

January 23rd, 2017

This call goes out to all racing enthusiasts and lovers of high performance automobiles. There’s a bully of a race car on the track in Nurburg, Germany and it has a sticker price of $1-million. The legendary 12.9-mile track, called Nurburgring, has been the star of racing events, movies, and video games. I think I have personally raced more than a million laps on the ‘Green Death’ (on Gran Turismo). Now it’s time to knuckle up and help Viper Nation knock off this bully and retake the record at Nurburgring in April 2017. In 2011, the Dodge Viper ACR claimed Read More

LS Powered Porsche 911 Carrera

January 21st, 2017

You’ll either love this car or you’ll hate it. To the Porsche purist, this is the ultimate slap in the face but to a street racer, this thing is music to the ear. One thing is certain – whether you love it or hate it – it is one heckuva unique build and a potential street terror. The car started life as a run of the mill 1986 Porsche Carrera RSR with an air-cooled V6 chomping away in the rear. The current owner purchased the car as a complete build from a fellow named Hal McGinnis down in the great Read More

Street Racing Digs – Sedan Shoot Out

January 20th, 2017

Hello drag racing fans and aficionados! Welcome to this contest between two high performance sedans. Allow me to say that I love the posturing and smack talking at the front of this video. I don’t know how it is where you race but in my neck of the woods there has to be a little flexing (or playing possum in some cases) and jockeying for position before you split the light. It ain’t mean or evil. It is loud but it’s just guys (and gals) letting off steam. This contest features a couple of GM products engaged in dig racing Read More

1800HP Twin Turbo Chevy S10

January 14th, 2017

Hello race fans – here’s the skinny – Flacco has got one fast Chevrolet S10 pickup. Get it? Because Flacco translates to skinny in English? No? Oh well, let’s talk No Prep. No Prep racing runs just as it sounds. There is no acetone or other chemicals that are sometimes used to clean excessive rubber from the track. Instead, these racers line up and attack the pavement in whatever state they find it. No Prep racing is as close to genuine street racing as anything that you will experience at a drag strip. Flacco’s S10 is well equipped with an Read More
