Ohio Street Digs for Cash

August 30th, 2017

These cats in Ohio (Mexico) really know how to have a good time. You begin by finding an abandoned strip of industrial park pavement (3-lane if you can get it). Next, you invite a bunch of gear heads with fast cars and charge them a $100 buy-in on a winner-take-all pot. The rules are simple: It’s run-what-ya’-brung, single elimination, dig racing action. If you win – you move on to the next round. If you lose, you go back on the trailer. Competitors draw cards at the start of each round to determine pairings. Don’t jump (leave early) and don’t Read More

TX2K17 – Taking it to the Streets

August 29th, 2017

How do you kill some down-time when you are attending the TX2K17 event in Houston? Grab several hundred of your closest friends in fast cars (on bikes, too) and scamper across the border (into Mexico) for some street (roll) racing. Take a look! First up is a supercharged Honda S2000 in a roll race with a Nissan GT-R. The GT-R jumped out on him and never looked back. The S2000 lived to race another day. This time it’s against a Camaro with unknown modifications. The Honda wins this one – handily. Next, we have a pair of Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Read More

Gold Dust Mustang Crushes Eighth-Mile

Hello racing fans and welcome to LightsOut8 from the South Georgia Motorsports Park! Among the contenders in the PRO275 Class this weekend, we have none other than Fletcher Cox (owner not driver). Fletcher is an NFL defensive lineman with the Philadelphia Eagles. Fletcher is among the elite defensive linemen in the NFL and loves drag racing. He has built at least two high-powered Mustangs. The one featured in this clip has a very special backstory. Fletcher’s late brother (Trell Cox) loved the sports entertainment (professional wrestling) character known as Gold Dust. The paint job on this car is skillfully done Read More

Underground Audi R8 – 244 MPH Half-Mile

August 29th, 2017

This Audi R8 Plus is a lesson in how to go super fast and look good doing it. On its maiden voyage, at WannaGoFast North Carolina, the Underground Racing Audi R8 posted a new world record top speed for an R8 (standing half-mile). Imagine what this thing is capable of once the bugs are worked out! Already potent in factory trim, the 2017 Audi R8 featured in this video is outfitted with the Underground Racing X Version Twin Turbo package. The X Version kit includes all the turbochargers, intercoolers, and plumbing (of course) but also throws in some serious fuel Read More

1285HP Stock Manifold GT-R

August 29th, 2017

The Nissan GT-R is built to be fast. Period. It is made to attack the pavement like it was wronged by asphalt and to conquer the concrete as if it had said something bad about its mama. Whether you are looking for a car to tame the streets or takeover the track; the Nissan GT-R is capable (in stock trim) or easily modified to realize your wildest expectations. Despite having a stock intake manifold, our feature GT-R has (of course) been drastically modified to achieve more than double its factory horsepower rating. This is a TopSpeed Motorsports built car. It Read More

Battle for Germany – Mercedes-Benz vs. Porsche

August 28th, 2017

Who wouldn’t want to be tasked with determining which of these two high-performance German sports cars is the absolute best? A road test, a track run, and finally an all out drag race will provide the data used to arrive at which of these awesome rides is superior. The first entry is the stunning Mercedes-Benz AMG GT. With its long front end and sleek lines, the AMG GT is truly a menacing sports coupe. Under the hood, a 4.0-liter twin turbocharged V8 is capable of producing 510hp. The other entry is the Porsche 911 GTS. In typical Porsche fashion, this Read More

Crazy Fast Aussie Sedan

August 25th, 2017

Produced in Australia, the 2000 Holden Commodore is basically the equivalent of a Chevrolet Lumina. While it is sold as a performance sedan, it is still considered a family car and an ultimate grocery-getter of sorts. Well, with a dyno test, some street hits and multiple track passes (on this video), even I can see that this is no ordinary Commodore. I guess the first clue was the two massive turbochargers that are nestled in under the front bumper. Let’s take a look under the hood: It all begins with an all-aluminum, 440 cubic-inch, Dart LSx based engine built by Read More

1500HP Procharged Duster

August 25th, 2017

It’s impossible to catch a ghost. Scientist and paranormal experts have tried for years to capture any form of ghost but – up until now – no ghost! This aptly named (The Ghost) 1972 Plymouth Duster also proved very elusive at the NEAD No Prep Throwdown in Oskaloosa, Iowa. With a 572 cubic-inch HEMI engine and an F2 Procharger, it might do you well to be scared of this Ghost. Despite making approximately 1,500hp (on 21-pounds of boost), the Ghost is still riding on stock suspension (front and rear). A TorqueFlite 727 transmission transfers all that power to the rear Read More

No Replacement for Displacement – Turbo Viper GTS

August 25th, 2017

Greetings roll racing fans! Please accompany us as we take a trip down south of the border (Mexico) for some street rolls. In an effort to prove that there truly is no replacement for displacement, a Dodge Viper (with its massive 8.4-liter mill) will take on a twin turbocharged Porsche 997 Turbo and a Ford Mustang with a Coyote engine and a Whipple supercharger. The action is of the roll racing variety. There are multiple passes at various speeds with some great camera angles. The footage is dramatic and the audio is truly amazing. These cars are skillfully modified and Read More

1300HP TT Street Mustangs

August 24th, 2017

Once categorized as fantasy, these 8-second street cars have all the creature comforts combined with mind-numbing power. This pair of pony cars competed in multiple roll racing classes at Street Car Takeover in Orlando, Florida before moving on to Orlando Speedworld for some impressive dig racing runs. Each one of these Fords are equipped with a modular Coyote engine. A Hellion turbocharger kit, with a pair of 6466 turbochargers, provides the forced air induction. These Hellion kits are slightly modified to achieve maximum boost and a methanol injection system keeps intake air cooler and denser for optimum fuel atomization. This Read More
