Gutted Tesla Model X Plaid vs. Big Turbo Porsche 911 Turbo S – Street Hits

February 27th, 2024

We are taking it to the streets – getting back to our roots – for some high-powered roll racing action between a pair of modified stallions. Our man Frank is on the scene with all the details. The Tesla Model X SUV is a beast of an all-electric grocery getter with a trio of electric motors that can make the equivalent of 1,020hp. In factory condition, the Model X plaid can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in only 2.5-seconds and turn the standing quarter-mile in 9.9-seconds @ 146.7 mph. That’s quicker than the Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye, the Chevrolet Read More

Domestic Dispute – Camaro SS vs. Charger Hellcat Street Hits

February 15th, 2024

These two homegrown heavies are all set to knuckle-up and get down on the streets (of Mexico). The phrase of the day is roll racing and the action will jump-off at 60 mph. The Hell kitty has traction issues at lower speeds. That’s what I call a good problem. The Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE is a naturally aspirated car. Powered by a 6.2-liter V8 that can produce 455hp in factory condition, the Camaro SS is track oriented (as opposed to drag oriented). Nevertheless, with the right mods it can go plenty fast in a straight line. Upgrades to this Chevy Read More

Challenger Hellcat Jailbreak vs. C63 AMG 507 – Street Hits

February 8th, 2024

In an all-out assault on the streets (of Mexico) tonight we have the latest version of the Dodge Challenger Hellcat rolling out against a beast of a Mercedes-Benz coupe. Both these cars are loaded with performance features from the factory. Let’s take a closer look before they take to the blacktop. The rear-wheel drive 2015 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG 507 is near the top of the MB lineup. With a 507hp all-aluminum 6.2-liter V8 working under the hood, it’s easy to understand why. Mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, the ultra-smooth V8 boasts four-valves per cylinder and direct fuel injection. Read More

AWD Audi RS 3 vs. RWD Dodge Challenger Hellcat – Drag Race

February 2nd, 2024

Knives are out in this one. Word has it that a drastically modified Dodge Challenger Hellcat will be taking on a similarly upgraded Audi RS 3 in a series of 1,000-foot drag races. Well, we can’t miss that. So, we join the usual suspects at the Hoonigan facility. Get a load of this: Mopar Mike is on hand with his rear-wheel drive 2017 Dodge Challenger Hellcat (sort of). Under the hood is a Whipple (4.5-liter) supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 with forged internals. This pink thing is good for 1,200whp. The Dodge tips the scale at 4,400-pounds and uses an 8-speed Read More

Sick Week – Day Zero Test and Tune

The best No Prep cars (trucks, etc.) are gathered in Florida to begin a series of drag racing events tied together by a 1,000-mile cruise. Sick Week is a grueling challenge. It’s hard on the machinery and brutal in the knuckles, but lifelong friendships will be formed. Let’s go to the track for some last minute test runs. Right out of the gate, there’s an ‘80s Pontiac Le Mans Wagon doing burnouts. This grocery getter has a massive 540 cubic-inch big Read More

Modified Toyota Supra vs. Mustang GT500 and Hellcat – Street Hits

January 27th, 2024

This little Toyota is angry. I have no idea what got him that way, but he’s plenty mad. He’ll be taking out his rage on an assortment of automobiles – import and domestic. Insert your mouthpiece and buckle your chin strap, this one is about to get real. Our initial contest will involve the aforementioned 2022 Toyota Supra. Mods include a performance exhaust downpipe and an E50 tune. The furious Supra will be racing an Infiniti Q50 with full bolt-ons. This is a close race with Toyota taking a narrow win at 160 mph. The Supra dominates the second hit. Read More

800HP Porsche 911 Turbo S vs. Texas Streets

January 23rd, 2024

Oh, yeah! It’s on in the streets of Texas (Mexico) this evening. What we have is a modified Porsche 911 Turbo S that’s feeling froggy. With zero lily pads in the vicinity, he’s jumping on loud, shiny things with four wheels. Let’s see how it shakes out. Upgraded with an AIM Performance ES 800 turbo kit, our Porsche is trolling the boulevard for its next victim. He happens upon an unsuspecting Chevrolet Camaro SS with upgraded camshaft, cylinder heads and intake manifold. Fur ruffles and confrontation seems eminent.
