8-Second VW Golf Goes Deep in True Street Class

December 31st, 2018

Today’s video makes a return to the Haltech WCF for more door-handle-to-door-handle racing action between some of the most capable competitors in the U.S. The feature car for today is a Volkswagen Golf – making somewhere in the vicinity of 1,000hp with a four-banger motor. Despite multiple engine and transmission swaps, this little front-wheel drive, German hatchback just kept going down the track. It was running consistent – low 9s and high 8s – even though it was a struggle to get it ready for the next round. That’s a credit to the ATP Turbo crew and their tight-knit group Read More

New Nissan GT-R Record

December 28th, 2018

Hello race fans and welcome to the Haltech World Cup Finals for another GT-R World Record. Seems like there’s a GT-R record falling every time I go to the dragstrip these days. This time it is the record for elapsed time in the quarter-mile; for a GT-R with the turbocharger in the stock location (not the stock turbo). The pass in question was 7.08-seconds @ 208.23 mph. With help from Tony Palo (T1 Race Development), this fugly GT-R with no openings in the grille and a matte black finish, is being campaigned by George Dodworth and the Clutch Masters crew Read More

World’s Quickest 6R80E Mustang – 60-Foot and Quarter-Mile

December 27th, 2018

Greetings drag racing fans and fellow gearheads of every ilk. Welcome to the Maple Grove Raceway (just outside Reading, Pennsylvania). Today we will join the Lund Racing crew and check out their 2015 Ford Mustang GT. The car looks pleasant enough, in Midnight Blue, but it leaves the line violently. Let’s take a closer look. Under the hood is a (modular) 5.8-liter Coyote engine built by LME (Late Model Engines). Fuel is sprayed using Injector Dynamics fuel injectors. Forced air induction duties are left to an HPP Racing turbo kit with a pair of Precision 6466 turbochargers. The combination is Read More

Make no mistake – the real stars of this show are the vehicles. The ZL1 is Read More

LS Swapped Mustang – No Prep Nightmare

December 20th, 2018

Oh no – say it ain’t so – is that a 1967 Ford Mustang doing a burnout in the bleach box? Rumor is that it has been retromodded with a turbocharged Chevrolet engine. That’s going to get under the skin of many Mustang purists; many of whom bleed Ford Blue. Motivation for this pony car comes in the form of a salvaged GM LQ9 (6.0-liter) V8 engine (from a 2003 Cadillac Escalade SUV). After only a camshaft upgrade and some cylinder head porting and polishing; the Caddy motor was outfitted with a Borg Warner S475 turbocharger and an intercooler setup. Read More

Procharged Corvette Z06 vs. TwinTurbo Mustang – Street Hits

December 18th, 2018

Welcome fellow racing fans to another night of roll racing on the streets of Mexico. This production treats us to an interesting conglomeration of passes between some of Detroit’s heaviest hitters – the Chevrolet Corvette and the Ford Mustang. Assume that all cars have been modified with a focus on roll racing. The first grouping unfolds with an 850hp Ford Mustang with a pair of turbochargers, a 1,000+hp (white) Corvette (C7) Z06 with an F1X Procharger, and a (black, supercharged 6.2-liter V8) Corvette ZR1 with cylinder head and camshaft upgrades. The first pass of the evening is between the two Read More

Grabber Blue Fox Body – Small Tire Domination

December 14th, 2018

It’s drag racing time in the land of Bounty Hunter’s No Prep Grudge Nationals II and some really nasty gunslingers have trailered in with intentions of taking home the $25K cash prize. Flacco is in town (San Antonio Raceway) with his twin turbo Cornfed Chevy S10 pickup and he has dollar signs (in his eyes) where his pupils used to be. Despite Flacco’s presence, the feature for this clip is a Grabber Blue Fox Body Mustang. This car is tearing up the track in Small Tire No Prep and we wanted to get a look under the hood. We were Read More

Classic Muscle vs. Modern Muscle – Drag Racing

December 13th, 2018

Hello, fellow drag racing fans and welcome to historic Mission Raceway Park in British Colombia, Canada. This clip is dedicated to answering that gnawing question, “Which is best – old muscle cars or new?” With the new crop of high-performance factory machines gaining by the year, I’m not sure that’s a question that can be answered in a single article. What we can do is bring you a great video of some old school Mopar muscle (along with some vintage Bow Tie and Blue Oval Iron) taking on some of the most modern powerhouses on the market. Challengers from dual Read More

9-Second Gear Jammer – Firebird Formula 6-Speed

December 6th, 2018

Welcome fellow racing fans and drivers alike. This video installment features a car in which a potentially aggravating combination is used. Manual transmissions and nitrous systems are rarely used in conjunction with one another. The suddenness with which most nitrous systems are introduced can create havoc with manual clutches. Let’s take a look at this clean Pontiac Firebird Formula and see if its crew has discovered a method for success. At the heart of this 9-second beast is an LQ4 based 408 cubic-inch V8 engine with a Stage 3 camshaft, set of Trick Flo cylinder heads, a Holley Sniper intake Read More

McLaren 720S vs. Lambo – Interstate Street Hits

December 5th, 2018

Greetings racing fans! This video production features two of the most feared supercars on the street; rolling out for some racing action on the highway (of Mexico). There are multiple camera angles and some very competitive races. Some bonus cars show-up, too. There’s a Bullitt Ford Mustang (Gen VI), a McLaren 12C, and a handful of hot street bikes. So, it appears that after significant on-line posturing, a couple of gearheads have chosen a neutral QT parking lot as the staging area for a street (roll) race between a modified McLaren (full bolt-ons, high-performance exhaust, and a really good tune) Read More
