Half-Mile Airstrip Attack – 1700HP Porsche Goes 220 MPH

September 11th, 2021

Meet the pros from AIM Performance. These guys are to Porsche performance what a pig is to barbecue. Everything. Today they are working the kinks out of a colleague’s 911 before they ship it home. Three characteristics standout about this Porsche. It’s right-hand drive. It’s all-wheel drive. It’s awfully fast. Of course, the Porsche 911 is a rear-engine all-wheel drive machine. This one has been upgraded (stroked) from a 3.8-liter to a 4.1-liter engine. The motor is fully built and enhanced with a pair of Precision 6870 turbochargers. The gearbox is a Hewland sequential and the car is owned by Read More

Ice Cream Cruise – 1320 Video vs Sheepy Race and Underground Racing

September 2nd, 2021

So, Kyle (1320 Video) turned up at the Ice Cream Cruise in Iowa (I-29 Dragway/Raceway Park of the Midlands) with his AMS built twin turbo Audi R8 V10 Plus. He was looking to do some roll racing and see how his Audi stacked up against serious competition from Sheepy Race and Underground Racing. Fortunately for Kyle, his buddy Jeremy was in attendance with his Sheepy Race built Lamborghini Huracan Performante. These two cars are almost identical from a performance standpoint. Jeremy has a slight advantage in weight with Kyle’s car tipping the scale approximately 600-pounds heavier than Jeremy’s. There are Read More

300WHP Ninja H2 vs. 1300HP TT Audi R8 – Half-Mile Drags

August 21st, 2021

This video documents the tale of two-wheeler versus four-wheeler in the standing half-mile. When Joe rolled into the Indy Airstrip Attack, he had no clue that he’d encounter Kyle (1320 Video) in his 1300hp Alpha built Audi R8 V10 Plus (twin turbocharged). This would afford Joe an opportunity to display the prowess of his 300whp Kawasaki H2 against some elite competition. The H2 is a beast in factory trim. Obviously, the H2 featured in this video has been modified well beyond stock. It all begins with a 998cc liquid cooled four-stroke. The inline four-cylinder engine is also supercharged. Power-to-weight ratios Read More

Half-Mile Airstrip Attack – 200 MPH Drag Racing

August 17th, 2021

Ever wonder what it would be like to drag race through an Indiana corn field? Well, wonder no more. This video takes through the Semi-Final round of the 2021 Indy Airstrip Attack (presented by Indiana Corn Marketing Council and First Farmers Bank & Trust). Some of the baddest half-milers in the Midwest have shown up to claim their share of fame and fortune. Let’s drop-in on this crucial round of half-mile drag racing action. Early in the day we have a 2017 Volkswagen Golf R (1100hp) getting ready to tackle a 2011 BMW 328i (800hp). This is a battle of Read More

Sketchy Vert Revamped Trans Am – SCT Denver Roll Racing

August 12th, 2021

Sketchy Vert is back and this time he is rocking a revamped engine compartment. He is still a twin turbo car, but he is now running a Texas Speed built 7.0-liter V8 mated to a TH400 automatic transmission. Traction is at a premium for this drop-top Pontiac that makes boo-koo horsepower at the rear wheels. In the first pass of the day (roll racing) Sketchy is taking on a Dodge Charger Hellcat. Sketchy posts a top speed of 140 mph and moves on after the Hellcat breaks out of the 146 mph bracket. Pass number two pits the Pontiac against Read More

Corvette Chaos – C8 vs. C6 Street Hits

August 2nd, 2021

This well produced video documents what happens after a car show is over and the enthusiasts/owners are not quite prepared to go home. With the talent thoroughly scouted, these well-heeled street racers take to the interstate (of Mexico) for some elite level street hits. Climb in, buckle up and hold on to your cookies – this is going to be a wild night! First on the highway is a contest between an Audi TTRS (unknown mods) and a Chevy Corvette with a performance camshaft and the full accoutrement of bolt-ons. In multiple hits, these two split the wins. Kinda seems Read More

Tesla Model S Plaid World Record Pass

July 28th, 2021

Who would have ever thunk it? The latest and greatest thing on the drag strip and street is an all-electric vehicle manufactured in the good old U.S. of A.? The Tesla Model S Plaid is blowing the doors off everything with the stones to line up next to it. This video gives us the opportunity to get up close as Chad Roberson takes down the (Plaid) world record during the MITM Elite gathering at the World Wide Technology Raceway in St. Louis, Missouri. The all-wheel drive Tesla Model S Plaid utilizes a trio of lithium-ion powered electric motors to manufacture Read More

Pack of McLaren Racers Take on Texas Streets

July 22nd, 2021

Summer is here and the time is right for racing in the streets! That ain’t the way the song goes but it sure makes for some interesting evenings. Let’s get down to Texas (Mexico) and see what all these McLarens are buzzing about. The first McLaren to take the interstate is rolling against a twin turbocharged Dodge Viper. That’s creating a ton of horsepower when you add twin turbos to an already potent 8.4-liter V10. The Viper gets the early advantage but can’t hold the McLaren off through the trap. McLaren FTW. Next, the TT Viper takes on a pair Read More

Harley Davidson Road King Nitrous Drag Bike vs. 1500HP Audi R8

July 15th, 2021

This one is a bit of a swerve, but I love my Harley Davidson Baggers and most especially my Road King. So, here goes – this is going to be a series of drag and roll races between a couple of highly modified vehicles. One has two wheels and the other has four. The Audi R8 V10 Plus is an all-wheel drive supercar that shares a platform with the Lamborghini Huracan. Same engine and transmission, same chassis, everything is identical except the sheet metal. The (stock) 2017 R8 is powered by a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine. The 3,800-pound R8 Read More

1300HP Audi R8 – World Record Contender

July 5th, 2021

The backdrop is the Hail Mary Derby at Maryland International Raceway. The focus is on established yoga teacher and mother Amie Palo and her 1300hp Audi R8 V10 Plus. Although Amie has relatively no track time, she has developed into a competitive drag racer in a single season. Amie has progressed to the extent that she is running consistent 8-second quarter-mile passes and being considered a serious contender to capture the stock motor Audi R8 (quarter-mile) world record in the very near future. Built and maintained by T1 Race Development, the Palo R8 is a twin turbocharged masterpiece with a Read More
