April 14th, 2016

Three wide street racing on the streets of ‘Old Mexico’ has got to be pretty rare but throw in a supercharged BMW and you are approaching unicorn status.

The BMW is sporting a VF Engineering 650 Kit that gets him up around 650hp. The GT500 comes from the factory with a supercharger and a performance exhaust, a cold-air intake, and other various aftermarket Read More

After a full day of roasting rubber at the drag strip, where it posted a best ET of 8.64-seconds @ 159.19 mph, this little Mustang is about to tangle with a radically modified Dodge SRT Viper on the streets.

April 8th, 2016

Fletcher Cox (of the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles) makes his living getting after quarterbacks. Shaun Harris makes his living driving Fletcher’s beast of a Foxbody Mustang and getting after the competition in the 1/8-mile. With a 481X Proline engine and a pair of Precision 102-millimeter turbochargers (mated to a Turbo400 transmission), this is being billed as the fastest stock suspension car on the planet.

Import Street Shootout – Mitsubishi Evo vs. Honda Civic

April 7th, 2016

Import aficionados will really appreciate this video. Roll racing is the order of the day and there’s a well put together Mitsubishi that’s beating the brakes off everything. There is also several bonus runs with various imports making a Mustang Cobra look pretty weak. The main event is between a 500hp Civic and the aforementioned Evolution. The Honda is trying to get dialed-in (and the Mitsubishi is giving him ample opportunity) but the Evo is quite a hand-full. The Mitsubishi is running a built 2.0-liter engine block (stock cylinder head) with upgraded camshafts and a twin-scroll Precision 6070 dual ball-bearing Read More
