2,000HP Furious 7 Maximus Charger Exposed

July 16th, 2015

If you are a fan of the Fast and Furious Saga, then you don’t want to miss this video. It gives us an inside look at the Maximus 2000 Charger (featured in the final scene of Furious 7) as described by Tom Nelson, of Nelson Racing Engines (NRE). It is a handcrafted replica of a 1968 Dodge Charger – with a few new twists. For one, the body is 6-inches wider than a stock ’68 Charger so the 18-inch wide tires on the rear look like average street tires. The first thing you will notice is the paint job (or Read More

Drag Racing: 800HP AWD Jeep SRT8

July 14th, 2015

Smoke ‘em if you got ‘em – and by that I mean all four tires (at the same time). This late model Grand Cherokee lays the smack down on a twin turbocharged Cutlass, some bodacious sports cars, and several high-powered turbo diesel pickups, on his way to the finals and an overall victory. This “grocery-getter” is powered by a 6.4-liter (that’s 392-cubic-inches) HEMI with a Procharger bolted on. Total output is estimated at 800hp, but some of this guy’s opponents may argue that it is much higher. Despite the fact that it is equipped with street radials, this all-wheel-drive SUV Read More

Loose on the Streets: 1350HP Twin Turbo Viper

July 9th, 2015

What do a pair of twin turbocharged Dodge Vipers, a turbocharged Supra, a supercharged C7, and a 900hp ZR1 have in common? Well, for one thing, they are all in this video clip and for another – they are all running amuck on the streets in an all out roll racing extravaganza. While these cars are all easy on the eyes, it ain’t how you look – its what ‘cha got under the hood. The first entry is a C7 Chevy Corvette. She is supercharged, with a methanol injection system to cool things down, and making 820hp (at the rear Read More

Travelin’ Down the Road and Flirtin’ with Disaster

July 8th, 2015

These familiar words, from a best-selling Molly Hatchet album, never rang more fitting than when associated with the Royalty family National Hot Rod Diesel Association (NHRDA) Dodge pickup truck. After a year off the circuit, the Royalty family is back and they now have a new setup. Checkout this clip as they make their first passes (0 to 60 mph in about 1-second) with the new hardware. The new racing strategy includes a 500-pound weight reduction, a set of custom exhaust headers, and a massive air-cooled (no engine coolant) 6.7-liter top-fuel style engine block with “110,000-pound” billet steel cylinder liners, Read More

Street Racing: Supercharged Mustang vs. SRT Viper T/A

June 30th, 2015

For as long as there have been muscle cars, Ford and Dodge have been battling on the street. Smaller, lighter, small block powered Mustangs going head to head against larger, more powerful Dodges with massive big block HEMI engines, are what made street racing what it is today. This video shows a 2015 Ford Mustang GT with a blown 5.0-liter V8. The supercharger is a 2.3-liter VMP Gen2. Fuel is delivered via a Lund Racing Tuner using Injector Dynamics ID1000 fuel injectors, a stock fuel pump, and a booster. American Racing Headers and exhaust removes spent gases and a McLeod racing Read More

Twin Turbo Viper – King of the Streets?

June 25th, 2015

Congratulations to Andy N. and the gang at D3 Performance Engineering for a win in the Rear-Wheel Drive Class at the 2015 Texas Invitational Automotive Airfield Exhibition. Andy also campaigned his twin turbocharged Viper successfully in the King of the Streets Class, defeating a couple of turbocharged Underground Lamborghinis and making it to the finals before falling to the AMS Performance Nissan GT-R. Andy’s Dodge Viper is powered by a 540-cubic-inch Gentry Performance engine with twin 76-millimeter turbochargers slamming air down its gullet. With the boost turned down to 25 psi, horsepower is estimated at 1,750, with a ceiling of Read More

3,000HP 1963 Dodge Polara

June 19th, 2015

This old Dodge can really get down the track. This thing is beautiful inside and out. Campaigning a beast like this is no simple task; especially on a No-Prep race track. Nevertheless, this driver handled his business and made it look easy. Everyone else in the Unlimited Class (primarily a bunch of blown Chevrolet drivers) seemed to have major issues getting out of the box straight at the Great Lakes Dragway in Union Grove, Wisconsin but this Polara, known as “Bad Judgment”, ran like a bullet. This bodacious black beauty is equipped with a 526-cubic-inch Hemi engine and a massive Read More

2,000HP AMS GT-R King of the Streets

June 18th, 2015

For the second time in as many years,  the AMS GT-R has defeated all challengers at the event which many driving enthusiasts believe is the epitome of roll racing; the Texas Invitational Automotive Airfield Exhibition. Amid a field that includes several twin-turbocharged Lamborghinis and a TT-Dodge Viper, the AMS Performance built Nissan GT-R endures to the end in some very close heads up roll racing. The AMS GT-R is equipped with a fresh Alpha 4.0-liter all-aluminum big-bore engine block and a pair of Alpha CNC ported cylinder heads. A full Alpha exhaust system, specially tuned Alpha Omega turbo kit (complete Read More

Monstrous 1,100HP Ram Cummins Diesel

June 12th, 2015

Join the fun as this Ram pickup proceeds to smoke out the crowd at the Real Street Dyno booth; not before putting up some pretty big numbers, though. To the cheers of delighted onlookers, the big turbocharged diesel revs high and floods the sparkling new dyno booth of Real Street with thick black smoke (despite the makeshift ventilation system). Where diesels are concerned, smoke equals horsepower, so those in attendance were in for a treat when the owner of the Ram took to the street and put on a show, creating even more smoke by spinning the tires. Powered by Read More

Turbocharged Minivan Edges GT-R and Viper in the 1/4-Mile

June 2nd, 2015

What would you do with a broken or abandoned all-wheel drive 1993 Eagle Summit minivan? How about doing what one New Englander did – throwing in a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4G63 four-cylinder engine and heading for the drag strip. After that, see if you can get paired up with a couple of iconic performance machines, like the Nissan GT-R and the Dodge Viper. That’s right Godzilla and the legendary Snake. While the Eagle Summit minivan (manufactured by Mitsubishi) is not known for performance prowess (neither is any other minivan, for that matter), it is moderately light and the four-wheel drivetrain hooks Read More
