Three-and-a-Half-Ton Ram 1500 Eats Sports Cars

August 7th, 2015

Nick Eklund’s 7,000-pound Ram 1500 pickup is dressed to kill, in a set of Hoosier drag slicks with four-doors and a 2-inch lowering kit. This monster is all about eating up the competition with a side of asphalt. As you can see in this clip, this Ram is quick out of the hole and it blasts through the trap. All of that power and torque comes from a 5.9-liter Cummins Turbo diesel with a stock block, a Hamilton camshaft, Manley pushrods, an Innovative Diesel Tune, and a Fire Funk S366 turbocharger mated to a Ryan Wilson 480 transmission and a Read More

World’s Fastest Hellcat Sedan?

August 6th, 2015

Our videographer documents this High Horse Performance (HHP) tuned 2015 Dodge Charger Hellcat (in Redline Red) posting a 10.57 @ 130 mph in the 1/4-mile. To make matters worse on all of you Hellcat driving hard-tails, this grocery-getter is piloted down the 1320 by a pretty lady. Adding further insult to injury is the fact that this clip was taken on a 90+ degree day, adding validity to the claim that on a cooler day this pretty kitty will do even better. The 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, with a 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI, comes right out of the crate producing 640hp. Read More

Classic Street Race Mustang GT500 vs. Corvette Z06

August 5th, 2015

It seems to me that we really don’t see nearly enough quick street (or track) Mustangs. The pavement is writhing with bodacious Corvettes of every era and every modified configuration, but when it comes to Ford counterparts, they are few and far between. So, when you finally get to see a classic battle of the little blue oval versus the big bad BOWTIE, it is quite a treat. This is just such a battle. Check out these two radically modified street cars as they lock horns down “south of the border.” This is roll racing and both of these rides Read More

1900HP Lambo takes on a 1400HP GTR on the Streets of Atlanta

August 4th, 2015

Here is a little street racing from down in my neck of the woods. This is how they “roll” in the A-T-L (get it? roll racing?) This insanely fast pack of street cars is ripping through the streets of Atlanta like a hot knife through butter. Atlanta hasn’t been burnt up like this since General Sherman came to town during the Civil War. You have got to see this video! The lead dog in this rabid pack is a 1900hp Lamgorghini Gallardo prepared by Underground Racing. This guy is trampling everything, including some pretty impressive super-bikes. Next is a 1400hp Nissan Read More

World’s Fastest Diesel Pickup 172MPH Duramax

July 31st, 2015

This video lets you ride along (and watch) with Owen Powell (driver and chief technician) and the crew at Duramaxtuner as they set a new record for diesel trucks in the Texas Mile. After experiencing some issues with torque converter lockup, the crew gets this stock looking pickup back on track and sets the record on the first day of testing. Day two Owen and the guys continue to fight the rigors associated with running a vehicle at full-throttle for a solid mile, but they manage to pull out a new record pass of 172.2 mph. Great job guys! Here Read More

260MPH COPO Camaro

July 30th, 2015

Nelson Racing Engines (NRE), in conjunction with Brink Racecraft, are building a fifth-generation COPO Camaro designed to tackle the Texas Mile. It boasts 2,500hp and is capable of hitting speeds in the neighborhood of 260 mph. This bad bowtie is powered by a NRE 632-cubic-inch big block Chevy with twin 88-millimeter Mirror-Image turbochargers, 4-into-1 custom fabricated stainless steel turbo exhaust headers, an Alien intake manifold with Anteater snout, Tial wastegates and Tial Q blow-off valves, v-banded inlet and outlet pipes, a specially formed water to air intercooler, and a billet air breather system with integrated step downs. Built-in roof rails Read More

8-Second 1/4-Mile by an 18-Year Old Girl

July 29th, 2015

In my gym there is a small sign that reads, “Remember that somewhere in China a school girl just did multiple sets of 15 – with your max.” That reminds me of Alex Taylor. As the youngest competitor at Rocky Mountain Race Week, this 18-year old is competing on a level that is much more advanced than her years. In one clip she responds to a question regarding the effects of the Colorado elevation level with, “Ooooh, el-e-vation” and in another she is spewing analytical tuner data like an experienced crew chief. This racer is already good, but one day Read More

Old School Blown Chevelle vs. New School Trans Am WS6

July 28th, 2015

Now this is what street racing is supposed to sound like! Check out this video as it depicts two high-performance rear-wheel drive GM products locked in a head to head battle on a lonely stretch of two lane blacktop. While these two cars share many similarities, at their core they are vastly different. The Pontiac gets the hole shot, and the victory, gradually pulling away from the effervescence of the heavier Chevrolet’s headlamps. The ’70 Chevelle is equipped with a supercharged vintage 7.0-liter big block V8 and the Trans Am utilizes a late model 6.2-liter turbocharged V8. Despite the two Read More

Tesla P85D Insane Mode vs McLaren 650S Spider

July 25th, 2015

Check out two heads up races between a Tesla Model S P85D with Insane mode taking on a McLaren 650S Spider.  While were used to seeing the Tesla P85D with it’s instant power (691HP), monster torque and all wheel drive take down just about any car off the line, the McLaren 650S is quite a monster off the line as well.  Our last test with the McLaren 650S demonstrated it’s advanced launch control system with 0-60 MPH coming up in just 2.8 seconds with OEM tires on the street. With the Tesla’s robotic ability to hit 0-60 MPH in 3.1 Read More

Twin Turbo Camaro vs. Turbo LS9 RX-7

July 24th, 2015

On a secluded airstrip in the desert, there stood a pretty girl. Her arms were raised and her long, dark hair was blowing in the warm breeze – that was just before all hell broke loose. She was a gorgeous starter and the hades that was unleashed came from a twin turbocharged 2012 Chevrolet Camaro and a highly modified 1994 Mazda RX-7. This is 1/2-mile roll racing and the Camaro gets the initial jump on the Mazda but the advantage is short lived (Hmmph!). The RX-7 posts a top speed of 191mph narrowly snatching victory from the Chevy that posted Read More
