A Pair of 10-Second Audi Sedans

July 3rd, 2017

Great looking Audi sedans aren’t just for soccer moms anymore. With minimal modification, these two Audi grocery getters showed up at the Cecil County Dragway and shocked everyone in attendance by running consistent 10-second passes in the 135 mph range. Burnout? We don’t need no stinkin’ burnout! The Audi RS7 (Performance) has all-wheel drive and a performance-tuned 8-speed automatic transmission. These cars leave the line like they were shot from a cannon – without a burnout! The $110K RS7 is powered by a twin turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine. It makes an astounding 605hp and 553 lb.-ft. of torque. In stock Read More

There is something in this video for everyone. There are small cars, big cars, coupes and sedans, imports (from every corner of the globe) and domestics, naturally aspirated cars, turbocharged cars, blown cars, nitrous injected cars – there are even electric cars, SUVs, and pickups.

Drag Race – Mercedes AMG GT S vs. Audi R8 V10

January 6th, 2017

Hello drag racing enthusiasts and welcome to an all out half-mile drag race between two premium German production sports cars. A few weeks ago, we were treated to a similar video which pitted the Audi R8 V10 against the Audi R8 V10 Plus and, as expected the Plus won out by a very narrow margin. So, what would happen if we lined the Audi R8 V10 up against another similarly equipped German luxury sports coupe? The R8’s competition is no less than the long and sleek Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S. Both cars are built with meticulous care and precision engineering Read More

Audi R8 V10 vs. Audi R8 V10 Plus

December 15th, 2016

Over the last several decades, Audi has gone from being an ugly little Volkswagen clone, upon which nobody wanted to work, to being considered outstanding in the area of high-performance factory automobiles. Now, Audi luxury sedans and sport utility vehicles are turning heads and impressing automobile enthusiasts around the globe with their stunning aesthetics and technologically advanced powertrain configurations. A few car lengths out front of the sedan and SUV models is the racing inspired Audi R8 V10 (533hp) and Audi R8 V10 Plus (602hp). These radical coupes roll out at a curb weight of approximately 3,500-pounds (the Plus is Read More

Half-Mile Dig Racing – Audi R8 vs. Porsche 991

December 3rd, 2016

Hello racing fans and automobile enthusiasts of every ilk and welcome to the Shift-S3ctor California Airstrip Attack 2016. This race is between two very capable, virtually stock sports cars from Germany. It takes place on a closed airstrip during a typically sunny (if a bit smoggy) day in Southern California. As you may know by now, the 2017 Audi R8 Plus is akin to the feared Lamborghini Huracan. Since both Audi and Lamborghini are owned by the Volkswagen Group, this should come as no surprise. The 2017 R8 Plus features the most powerful engine that the automaker has ever put Read More

71-Year Old Takes Title at Texas Invitational

October 26th, 2016

They say that racing is a young man’s game and I must say that it has proven true over time. Nevertheless, “they” have never met King of the Streets veteran, 71-year old Bob Helms. You see, the thing is that nobody ever told Bob that he needed to move over for a younger butt to occupy the seat of his Underground Racing (UR) built Lamborghini and (I gotta’ believe) that if “they” did, Bob would tell them where to go. Bob has been racing King of the Streets events since 2011, without a win, so I absolutely love the fact Read More

Audi vs. McLaren – Drag Race

October 10th, 2016

Here is a big-money brawl between two mass-produced supercars. For those who may watch this video and think that all cars of this caliber are the same, keep in mind that this is the baddest Audi on the menu (an R8 Plus Quattro S Tronic) and the most conservative McLaren (a 570S). Take a look. This contest will be a dig race between two cars with similar horsepower specs. The Audi is an all-wheel drive coupe and the McLaren is rear-wheel drive but the R8 outweighs the 570S by more than 400-pounds. With 610hp, the R8 bolts from 0 to Read More

Street Racing – Z06 vs. Porsche 911 and More

July 26th, 2016

BK34 has taken it to the streets (down in Mexico, of course) in his modified Corvette Z06. This bodacious bowtie is equipped with a 6.2-liter supercharger engine from the factory. Add some strategically placed bolt-ons, a camshaft upgrade, and some upgraded cylinder heads and you have the advertised 580whp. He should have his hands full tonight with a Porshe 911 and a Toyota Supra. The ‘Yota has a Precision 6765 turbo and is claiming 650hp. The Porsche is running some very pricey aftermarket add-ons and claiming 540hp at the rear wheels. This is highly-competitive, 3-wide roll racing. Let’s take a Read More
