Phoenix Streets – 18 Car Bracket

March 13th, 2017

Hello drag racing fans and aficionados! Welcome to the streets of Phoenix (Mexico) where an evening of street racing can be cold, wet, and dusty all at the same time. This may be the most diverse band of street racers ever gathered on a chilly stretch of desert highway. There are domestics and imports, muscle cars and late models, coupes and pickups, naturally aspirated cars, nitrous injected cars, turbo cars, and supercharged cars – there’s something in this video for everyone. They have come together in a contest of speed and guts to see who can claim the $3,000 grand Read More

First Look – Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE

March 7th, 2017

What? No 2018 Camaro Z28? What will we do? How will Chevy enthusiasts survive? Very well indeed, I presume. Allow me to attempt an explanation as General Motors has provided. There has been no sign of a Z28 version of the Camaro for 2018 because the ZL1 ILE will fill its spot in this year’s lineup. Does this mean that the Z28 is gone for good? Absolutely not, according to sources inside GM. So, why can’t the ZL1 1LE simply be adorned with the Z28 badge? In a word: history. You see, the Z28 Camaro has always been a naturally Read More

Tesla P100D Ludicrous Testing 0-60 MPH vs Battery State of Charge from 10% to 100%

March 5th, 2017

Fact or Fiction?  Teslas get slower as their battery is depleted. One of the most common comments on our Tesla videos is related to performance losses as the battery state of charge in the Tesla goes down.   Since we typically don’t run our Tesla’s charge down the low levels we never really experience noticeable performance losses.  We have run multiple 0-60 tests as well as 1/4 mile runs back to back with many different Teslas and the times have always been relatively consistent. In the video below we test the Tesla Model S P100D Ludicrous from 0-60 MPH as well as measure Read More

3000HP Corvette ZR1 – World Record Eighth-Mile

March 3rd, 2017

Whoa! Check out this record breaking 1/8-mile, radial tire pass. Greetings drag racing enthusiasts. Say hello to Mark Woodriff and his amazing twin-turbo ZR1 Corvette. This car laid down an 1/8-mile pass with an ET of 3.83-seconds @ 212.69 mph. That is good enough to set a new World Record for a radial tire car in the 1/8-mile. It is hard to believe that this car, with a Larry Jeffers built front half, was badly wrecked only 2-weeks prior to this video being produced. The car is powered by a Sonny’s (Leonard) Racing, 522 cubic-inch, big block engine with a Read More

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
