McLaren 650S vs Ferrari 458 Italia Street Race

October 3rd, 2015

Check out this video of a McLaren 650S going up against a Ferrari 458 Italia from a dead stop using launch control as well as a 1st gear roll race.  The McLaren’s 641HP 3.8L V8 Twin Turbo just hammers the Ferrari and it’s 570HP 4.5L naturally aspirated V8.  We imagine that this is why Ferrari finally gave in and decided to go with a set of turbos for the Ferrari 488 GTB. Can the new Ferrari 488 GTB with it’s 661HP 3.9L V8 Twin Turbo compete with the McLaren 650S?  We hope to find out soon!

10 Fastest Rides of Drag Week 2015

October 3rd, 2015

Hot Rod Drag Week is a unique event in which competitors line up in heads up dig racing action on 5 different tracks during a 5-day period. At the end of the event the racer with the lowest drag week average (DWA) from the 5 days of racing wins the title of HOT ROD’S fastest street car in America. Oh yeah, to earn the street car title, one must drive their dragster to each event (1,000-miles total). The competition is grueling with many competitors choosing to pull small cargo trailers to accommodate their personal effects, tools, and spare parts. Check Read More

Tesla Model S P90D Ludicrous 1/4 Mile Results

October 2nd, 2015

The first 1/4 mile results for the new Tesla P90D with Ludicrous are in with a new owner taking their P90D to Rock Falls Raceway in Wisconsin.  The owner did a 90% charge with the P90D at a nearby supercharger before heading to the track and ended up with a best time of 11.38 @ 115.89 MPH which is quite a bit away from the 10.9 second 1/4 mile time that Tesla states on their P90D specification page. When comparing the P90D timeslips to the P85D slips we have, the P90D clearly has some more low end grunt with a slightly better Read More

Twin Turbo Mazda RX-7 Turns 8.1-Second Quarter-Mile

October 1st, 2015

Despite evenings that involve pulling a small trailer across the Midwest (during Drag Week 2015), this Chevy powered 1990 Mazda RX-7 overcomes oil leaks and overheating problems to post some low eight-second times and a top speed of more than 180 mph. This bright green modified import is equipped with a Chevrolet big block engine bored out to around 460-cubic-inches. That seems pretty bodacious but this racer has added a pair of monstrous 75-millimeter turbochargers. The car seems a little sluggish coming out of the hole but it blazes through the trap like a champ. At 1,400hp, when this guy Read More

Street Racing Southern Style

September 29th, 2015

Come experience some southern hospitality in the A-T-L. Hot nights are in store and some even hotter street racing action. When the temperatures rise these southern boys (and girls) love to take to the streets in their souped up chariots and ice the competition. You have to see this collection of highly modified top-tier sports cars as they do battle for bragging rights down in Georgia. Roll racing rules apply – with 60 mph starts. First, there is a 650hp Porsche 911 going against a 650hp Nissan Gt-R. This is a closely contested race, then the Porsche tangles with a Read More

1500HP TT Dodge Dart Swinger Runs 7-Second Quarter-Mile

September 28th, 2015

Matt Blasco drove 28-hours from Canada (with a trailer in tow) to campaign this ’72 Swinger at the Lucas Oil Dragway, in Indianapolis, Indiana, during Drag Week 2015. His mom bought the Mopar for $150 and gave it to him when he was only 15-years young. It ain’t the prettiest thing on the track but it sure has some Camaros crying for mercy and some Mustangs running for cover. This bodacious Chrysler is running a 572-cubic-inch mill with Indy Predator Hemi cylinder heads and twin 91-millimeter turbochargers. It is detuned to 1,500hp during this event but has the capacity to Read More

September 24th, 2015

Check out this clip which delivers a 1,200+hp Toyota Supra daily driver that looks immaculate. This Sunshine State Thumper runs amuck during the Wanna GoFast weekend in the beautiful mountains of North Georgia. You really don’t expect to see a Toyota on street tires flying past the likes of a Nissan GT-R, but that is just exactly what happens. What a car! A combination of forced air induction and nitrous oxide provide the giddy-up-and-go for this Supra. A built RS1600 3.4-liter inline 6-cylinder engine is at the heart of the matter. Air is violently jammed into the six-banger via a Read More
