Mopar Mayhem – 1970 Plymouth Road Runner vs. 1970 Dodge Challenger

September 25th, 2021

We have another old school drag racing video for all you gearheads. This time, it’s a pair of the most iconic Mopar muscle cars ever produced. Both these cars have been pristinely restored to stock condition. Today we see which one is fastest in the quarter-mile. In the right lane we have the 1970 Plymouth Road Runner. This cream-colored Road Runner (black vinyl top) is powered by a 426 cubic-inch HEMI engine with a dual four-barrel carb setup. This arrangement is rated at a conservative 425hp. It has an automatic transmission and a 4.30:1 Sure Grip rear end. This stunning Read More

1600WHP Mustang Cobra Versus the World

September 24th, 2021

Tony’s twin turbo Mustang Cobra is one of the most capable street cars north of the Mason-Dixon line. Without discrimination, Tony has intimidated competitors on the street and strip for nearly two-decades. This outstanding Cobra has whipped turbo street bikes and posted consistent 8-second quarter-mile elapsed times. It’s an all-around street beast. Under the hood of Tony’s 2003 Ford Mustang Cobra is a fully built 4.6-liter modular motor from Ford. A pair of Precision 6870 turbochargers force copious amounts of air into the snake and the transmission is a GM TH400 automatic. Maximum output is 1600hp to the rear wheels. Read More

September 21st, 2021

Taking it old school, we join legendary British car enthusiasts James May and Richard Hammond (The Grand Tour) as they conjure up a drag race between a pair of eighties era supercars. Shall we go out to the track and find these two old blokes as they prepare to get their race on in these vintage sports cars? As these two codgers tow the line, they consider the potential for catastrophic failure to this pair of classic cars (from a sudden start/drag race). After some brief calculations, it is determined that a rolling start is preferred. Smart move. The 1982 Read More

September 17th, 2021

As the Mecca of drag racing enthusiasts, Hot Rod Drag Week attracts some of the most capable straight-line machines in the world. This video focuses on some of those vehicles. Day 4 of Drag Week finds us looking at a diesel powered 1980 Chevrolet C-10 shortbed pickup with a pair of small turbochargers. This truck is rolling coal like it’s going out of style and leaving a ton of rubber on the track during his burnouts. The sawed-off truck cuts a clean light and totes the front out past the tree. He leaves a thick cloud of black smoke behind Read More

1400HP Nissan GT-R vs. 1370HP Ford Mustang – Drag Race

September 14th, 2021

Here we go again! This is a time-honored rivalry between a sports car from Japan and some Detroit muscle from the good old USA. Both these cars are twin turbocharged, and both are capable of making approximately 1400WHP. That’s where the similarities end. For instance, one is a V8 and the other is a V6. One is all-wheel drive and the other is rear-wheel drive. One is a purpose-built roll racer and the other is a drag car. With all their differences, this should be an interesting series of races. Let’s begin with the import. The 2017 Nissan GT-R is Read More
