7-Second Grocery Getter – Worlds Quickest Wagon

November 7th, 2019

This ain’t your momma’s station wagon! This wild looking grocery getter blasts outta the hole and rolls through the quarter mile like funds through a gearhead’s bank account. It is fast. Since 2004, Eric Kenward (Racing) has tried a multitude of different configurations in this G-Body Wagon. He’s finally settled on a big motor and big turbo setup and it’s working fabulously well for him. With passes in the low sevens, he has realistic aspirations that he might drop into the elusive sixes soon. Typically, Eric is running a 400+ cubic-inch engine with an 88-millimeter Garrett turbocharger. Finding himself in Read More

Extreme Drag Racing – New GT-R World Record

November 2nd, 2019

That’s right! They did it again! Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) and English Racing have teamed up to bring the Nissan GT-R (Quarter-mile) World Record home to the United States. Maryland International Raceway (Budds Creek, Maryland) is the sight of 2019 Import vs Domestic World Cup Finals. This spectacular event suddenly morphs into a world record busting bonanza when the ETS GT-R scampers down the track in 6.56-seconds @ 225.15 mph. That knocks 2/100ths of a second off the time set by the Alpha Logic GT-R on February 15, 2019 in Dubai, U.A.E. The ETS Nissan is obviously radically modified with Read More

Corvette ZR1 vs. McLaren 570S – Street Hits

November 1st, 2019

So, whadda ya’ get when you cross a 700hp Corvette ZR1 with a McLaren 570S? How about an uncontrollable desire to see which one is faster? Lining up these two beautiful examples of automotive engineering seems as natural birds and bees. The test of the night is roll racing from the highways of Mexico. There are a pack of rabid ‘Vettes on hand, several modified Mustangs, a high-powered Cadillac CTS-V and – don’t forget – the exotic McLaren. This is going to be a hoot! The action heats up with a 700hp ZR1 (supercharged 6.2-liter) on the left and a Read More

7-Second Four-Cylinder DSM

October 28th, 2019

This is nothing short of amazing. For your viewing pleasure, we offer a Mitsubishi Eclipse that cannot simply rip a (low) 7-second quarter-mile and churn out 1800hp – but gets it done using a four-cylinder engine. I’m no genius, but if my math is correct, that is more than 400hp per cylinder! As I said: Amazing. Campaigning in the Extreme Stick Shift Class, this DSM is powered by a billet aluminum (4G63 platform) four-cylinder engine with a factory aluminum DOHC cylinder head. Block and head are loaded with the best components that money can buy. The turbocharger is an 86-millimeter Read More

Tonight, she will face twin turbo Mustangs, another supercharged Corvette, a Toyota Supra with a big turbo and a modified Nissan GT-R. First up are the nitrous Corvette and the Supra. They roll out and the Toyota gets the jump. The ‘Vette spins the tires and lets off. As they realign, a Read More

Underdog EcoBoost Mustang vs. ZL1 Camaro and Dodge Demon

October 17th, 2019

Who’d a thunk it? A four-cylinder Ford beating up on a supercharged Camaro and a supercharged HEMI Challenger? This is crossing over into otherworldly territory. It’s flat out spooky. One thing’s for sure; this ain’t your ordinary four-banger. This is the 2018 Ford Mustang “EcoBeast” with a tuned 2.3-liter turbocharged engine. In factory trim, this car is making more horsepower than many (so-called) V8 muscle cars from back in the day. The tiny four-cylinder is capable of making 310hp and 350lb.-ft. of torque right out of the box. Car and Driver magazine has it clocked at a 5.1-second zero-to-sixty and Read More

Ford Swapped Nova – 3000HP Menace

October 10th, 2019

Contemptable sacrilege or common sense? Guess that depends on how doggedly you cling to the status quo. At any rate, this is one that’ll get a lot of people’s blood boiling. A giant Ford motor in a classic Chevy? Oh, the humanity! Just kidding. Fact is that every racer is smart to use what is most accessible at the time. This time it’s a 1969 Chevrolet Nova – abandoned by the car owner’s son for 25-years – loaded with a massive twin turbocharged Boss Nine 565 cubic-inch big block engine. The mill is built by Jon Kaase Racing Engines and Read More
