8-Second 1/4-Mile by an 18-Year Old Girl

July 29th, 2015

In my gym there is a small sign that reads, “Remember that somewhere in China a school girl just did multiple sets of 15 – with your max.” That reminds me of Alex Taylor. As the youngest competitor at Rocky Mountain Race Week, this 18-year old is competing on a level that is much more advanced than her years. In one clip she responds to a question regarding the effects of the Colorado elevation level with, “Ooooh, el-e-vation” and in another she is spewing analytical tuner data like an experienced crew chief. This racer is already good, but one day Read More

Check out this video as it depicts two high-performance rear-wheel drive GM products locked in a head to head battle on a lonely stretch of two lane blacktop.

Twin Turbo Camaro vs. Turbo LS9 RX-7

July 24th, 2015

On a secluded airstrip in the desert, there stood a pretty girl. Her arms were raised and her long, dark hair was blowing in the warm breeze – that was just before all hell broke loose. She was a gorgeous starter and the hades that was unleashed came from a twin turbocharged 2012 Chevrolet Camaro and a highly modified 1994 Mazda RX-7. This is 1/2-mile roll racing and the Camaro gets the initial jump on the Mazda but the advantage is short lived (Hmmph!). The RX-7 posts a top speed of 191mph narrowly snatching victory from the Chevy that posted Read More

He certainly gets out of the “roll” quicker than the 1,000hp Mustang Fox but can’t hold the Ford off at the midway point.
