Viper TA Takes On 1000HP Nissan GT-R

September 17th, 2015

The DriverMod Viper TA is unleashed! That’s right – it is not chained to a dyno this time – it’s taking it to the streets against another radically modified beast of an automobile. Aptly named “Godzilla”, the Nissan GT-R is one of the most feared machines on the street. As a bonus, they are running against a stock Honda CBR1000 motorcycle. As seen a few days ago on DragTimes, the Viper TA engine is stock with an intake manifold upgrade, exhaust headers, and a 250 shot of Nitrous Outlet giggling gas. It is riding on CCW C12 racing wheels and Read More

1200HP Shelby GT500 Dyno Run

September 16th, 2015

Check out the heavily modified KP Performance Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 as it gets put through the paces on the dynamometer. The Big Blue Oval may not be known for mind-numbing power but this is one mean ‘Stang. The first dyno pass nets 1,012hp and 1.047 lb.-ft. of torque. After a few tweaks, it manages 1.027hp and 1,176 lb.-ft. of torque. By the way, it is running on E85 fuel. This pony has a Kenne Bell Mammoth supercharger, L&M built 5.0-liter small block Ford engine (bored and Darden sleeved to 5.4-liters) with Diamond pistons, and a 200 shot of nitrous. Read More

700HP IMW Honda Civic Battles Supercars

September 15th, 2015

Check out this footage of the Innovative Motor Works Honda Civic going toe-to-toe with some exotic supercars. The business of the day is done as 65 mph roll racing. First, the “little import that could” lines up against a mighty 700hp Mustang Shelby GT500 and whips him handily. Next up is a turbocharged Toyota Supra, which is also narrowly dispatched. The Civic isn’t able to get a handle on the awesome sounding supercharged 775hp Corvette and gets beaten by a nose. Finally, an odd contest with a lame Huracan and a bad Bavarian wins easily. The Civic is outfitted with Read More

Dodge Viper TA with 250 Shot of Nitrous on the Dyno

September 12th, 2015

Check out this Dodge Viper TA with a 250 shot of nitrous making some pulls on a DynoJet Dyno.   Before adding Nitrous the Viper already had some mild modifications (headers, exhaust, tune) and put down 623 horsepower and 589 ft-lbs of torque to the rear wheels. After adding the Nitrous Outlet 250 shot the Viper put down 879 horsepower and 903 ft-lbs of torque, an impressive 256 horsepower pickup.  Since traction would be an obvious  issue, they added a set of CCW wheels with Mickey Thompason tires to keep the power down. A few races are already waiting for the Read More

2100HP Nissan GT-R

September 11th, 2015

You have never seen a GT-R like this one! When the Nissan GT-R was given the nick-name “Godzilla”, this was the car they envisioned. This may be the car that is in line to take the crown as the baddest GT-R on the planet. Just fooling around – under low boost conditions – this monster lays down an 8.024-second pass at 173 mph. On race day, he posts a 7.90 @ 174 mph, on his way to an eventual daily best of 7.41 @ 181 mph. This exceptional import is equipped with a GT1R Stage7 4.0-liter engine with a Magnus Read More

Taking it to the Streets – Turbocharged Spool Bus

September 8th, 2015

  Is it the Spool Bus or short bus? This thing has a school bus safety stop sign hanging from the driver’s door – to each his own, as “they” say. They also say, “It ain’t how you look, it’s what you got under the hood.” Under the hood of this brightly colored S10 Blazer is a fully built 5.7-liter LT1 (bored .030 over to 355-cubic-inches), high-performance cylinder heads, camshaft, and intake manifold, exhaust headers, and a massive 80mm turbocharger. It’s all bolted to a 4L80E transmission (from 3/4-ton truck). The SUV is estimated at 700hp. This mean fire-breathing machine Read More

Hellcat Slayer? Cadillac CTS-V Street Racer

September 7th, 2015

It’s street racing – south of the border style and we got a pair of bad-axs Cadillacs lining up against all comers. The first one is equipped with a 125 shot of nitrous, a camshaft upgrade, and a crank pulley upgrade. He says that he’s making somewhere in the “high sixes” (kinda’ tongue in cheek, if you ask me). He then proceeds to walk the dog on a 750hp Dodge Challenger Hellcat with an aftermarket driveshaft and an E85 tune. Both cars are supercharged from the factory. Next up is a pretty blue Corvette Z06 with a 250 shot of Read More

Heartland Street Racing for Cash

September 4th, 2015

What’s better than some night time street racing? Well, that would be racing for cash prizes and good old fashioned Midwestern braggin’ rights. This video features some of the best heads-up street racing that you will ever see! The scene is set in the deserted streets of an industrial park. The hour is late and all of the familiar competitors (usual suspects) are on hand. Skinny is unloading his 1200hp Twin Turbocharged Fox Mustang off the trailer, there is a late model Cobra with a stock engine and cylinder heads and a 7875 turbo that claims 900hp, an 800hp turbocharged Read More

Volatile V8 Volvo

September 3rd, 2015

This hum-drum looking beater of a Volvo shocked onlookers at the Pike’s Peak Airstrip Attack when he flat out spanked a Lamborghini, a Corvette, and more! The owner affectionately refers to the car with a very nasty name from a movie script before revealing that a 6.0-liter Chevrolet LSX with an 80-millimeter bargain basement ($200 – including shipping and handling) turbocharger and a turbo 400 transmission. This little unassuming sedan is packing 600hp and is certainly opening some eyes on the 1/2-Mile Roll Racing Circuit. This guy seems to be having the time of his life, despite turning 160 mph Read More

700HP Ford GT races 641HP McLaren 650S

September 2nd, 2015

Check out this race between a 2005 Ford GT and a 2015 McLaren 650S.  It’s exotic American Muscle at it’s best with the Ford GT modified by Heffner Performance pushing out 700+ horsepower from it’s supercharged 5.4L V8. Modifications to the Ford GT include a pulley, tune and exhaust that put down 651HP on a DynoJet Dyno. The 2015 McLaren 650S comes from the UK in stock form with a twin turbo 3.8L V8 putting out 641HP.  With 10 years between the model years there is a lot of new technology in the McLaren that the Ford has to compete with, most notably the Read More
