After getting rained out from the track we decided to give some demo rides in the Tesla Model S P100D, after seeing how well the car could launch in the rain we decided to test out Tesla’s traction control systems and see exactly how quick the car is from 0-60 MPH in the rain.

7-Second Mazda RX-7

October 14th, 2016

This little Mazda RX-7 coupe has got me green with envy! Like most of he gear heads that I know, I only dream of getting down into the 7-second realm. This green streak is no longer rotary powered. It has had a heart transplant. Now there is a 555-cubic inch big block Chevrolet engine, with a pair of Garrett 88-millimeter turbochargers, under the hood. This car looks great but it sounds even more amazing. Enduring the experiences of Drag Week 2016, this team is hit with a hydraulic lifter issue that resulted in a new valve train, lifters, and camshaft. Read More

Street Stampede – Chevy S10 vs Toyota Supra

October 13th, 2016

What do a mid-size Chevy SUV and a compact Toyota sports coupe have in common? Not much unless you’re talking about the massive amount of forced air induction found under the hoods of these two street brawlers. The Supra is a 1995 model with a Real Street built 3.0-liter engine (Manley parts). It has a Hypertune Racing intake manifold with a 90-millimeter throttle body, 2200cc Siemens injectors, and a PHR Triple Walbro fuel pump setup. A Precision GT 42 7675 turbocharger force feeds the engine copious amounts of air and everything is controlled using an AEM V2 controller. A PHR Read More

No Mercy – Mustang Claims 275 Radial World Record

October 12th, 2016

Welcome race fans to the qualifying rounds of No Mercy 7 at world famous South Georgia Motorsports Park – right off US Hwy 41 in the big town of Cecil, Georgia. Once again, this event is playing host to some of the most radical street machines in the nation. Ziff Hudson is the man of the hour (yes, I said Ziff). He posted a 1/4-mile ET of 4.05-seconds @ 186 mph. This guy is no stranger ground pounding speed as he has been campaigning a Mercury Zephyr on a set of Mickey Thompson 275/60R15 skins for a number of years. Over Read More

Corvette Z06 vs. Porsche 918 Spyder – Really?

October 10th, 2016

This is definitely a drag race because one car gets dragged (to death) the length of the track. As one might expect, a contest between an all-wheel drive 887hp spacecraft and a 650hp rear-wheel drive sports car will easily be won by the spacecraft. Of course, the spacecraft in this scenario is the Porsche 918 Spyder, with its $1-million price tag, and the lesser sports car is the Corvette Z06 at roughly one-tenth the cost of the German monster. The Spyder (it’s more fun when you say it with a German accent) is truly an automotive work of art. It Read More

This is the official trailer for a brand new Amazon streaming series, called The Grand Tour, starring a trio of guys that you might recognize from the long-running BBC television series Top Gear.

1100WHP C7 Corvette Z06

October 5th, 2016

This 9-minute video brings us a step-by-step guide on how to build a run-of-the-mill Corvette Z06 (if such a thing exists) into an 1100whp pavement pounding monster. Vengeance Racing out of Cumming, Georgia is the outfit responsible for producing this outstanding specimen. As you will discover, this Chevy undergoes a major transformation. The engine is removed from the chassis and upgraded with a Vengeance recirculating catch can and a Vengeance Stage III racing camshaft. It also got a set of Vengeance CNC ported LT4 cylinder heads and a set of custom Vengeance valve covers. Once the power plant was reinstalled, Read More

Buncha’ B.S. at King of the Streets Chi-Town

October 4th, 2016

There was a real bunch of BS at one of the nation’s biggest No Prep events recently – Boosted Solutions, Inc that is. The crew at BS campaigned three cars in the Senior Class of this mid western main event; virtually guaranteeing that one of them would make it through to the finals. These guys are serious about forced air induction and even more serious about No Prep. The feature car for this video is a Mustang SVO with a big block Chevrolet engine and twin 94-millimeter turbochargers. This thing really gets down the track in a hurry. Check out Read More

Twin Turbo 7-Liter Camaro Wins 2016 Hot Rod Drag Week

September 28th, 2016

Check out this clip of Clark Rosenstengel and his GenV Camaro. He lays down a 7.80 1/4-mile pass at 170 mph in a car that still has factory air conditioning. If that isn’t enough to prove this is a true street machine, it is also riding on radial tires (Mickey Thompsons). One might conclude that, with a Steve Morris built 427 cubic-inch LSX (that means Chevrolet) engine and a pair of sparkling stainless-steel Bullseye 80-millimeter turbochargers, this grueling week long event (Hot Rod Drag Week) would be a cake walk. Not so much; you see, Clark and the gang had Read More
