Black Beauty – 900WHP Buick Regal V6

July 18th, 2019

In 1987, the fastest American made production car was not powered by a V8 engine. The car was the Buick Grand National GNX and the engine was a 3.8-liter V6 with a turbocharger. Nothing spectacular but enough push to put them on top of the heap. Meet Jerry. He loves Grand Nationals and owns three. Today, Jerry has agreed to walk us through his pride and joy. It’s a 1987 GN with only 36k miles on the chassis. The running gear has even less. It’s still a V6 but it has been fortified with all the best internal components. Jerry Read More

Powered by what the driver calls the “Junk LT” this Gen II LT1 engine is built with an economy crankshaft, connecting rods and pistons. Cramming air down the snout of this unlikely mill is a Precision (8891) 88-millimeter turbo. The transmission is a manual T56 built by Tick Performance. It’s loaded with their clutch components and hardware. Output at the rear Read More

Toyota Supra vs. BMW Z4 M40i – Drag and Roll Races

July 11th, 2019

Check it out – so, the two cars featured in this video are basically the same. The Z4 has been around for a little while, but the Supra is brand new. The Supra is based on the Z4 platform and it is one of the most eagerly awaited automobiles of the last few decades. Factory equipped with launch control, both these Austrian beauties are equipped with turbocharged inline 6-cylinder engines and 8-speed automatic transmissions. Unfortunately, there is no manual transmission, but one could be offered in later production runs. The Supra is offered only as a hardtop. The Z4 can Read More

Hillbilly Deluxe – 1960 Chevy C10 1500HP

July 10th, 2019

This is a must see No Prep monster. Not your everyday, run-of-the-mill dragster; this is one stunning 1960 C10 shortbed pickup truck. The body is all steel except for the front clip and the bed sides. Equipped with a built small block Chevy V8 and a pair of air-to-water intercooled 88-millimeter Magnum turbochargers, this heavy hauler is capable of churning out 1,500hp. Shifting duties are handled with a Powerglide transmission and the engine is burning alcohol. The eighth-mile No Prep racing action begins with Hillbilly Deluxe (HD) in the left lane and a 1978 Cadillac Coupe de Ville (yes, you Read More

7-Second Dodge Viper World Record Holder

July 4th, 2019

Bet you thought those Georgia rednecks from Vengeance Racing only wrenched on Chevy cars, huh? Well, get ready for an education. This snake holds numerous world records; mostly in the Viper category, naturally. It is adequately equipped with a stock (8.4-liter) engine block that has been reinforced. Stock? Reinforced? Who knows what it all means to a world record holder – all I know is that reinforced don’t sound stock. Neither does “big internals” but that’s their biscuit. I’ll let ‘em butter it however they like. Besides the built “stock” bottom end, there are a pair of massive turbochargers. I Read More

LS Swapped Ford LTD – 8-Second Sleeper

July 3rd, 2019

It ain’t your grandma’s LTD. Not by a long shot! This unimposing, cream colored sedan is outfitted with a mini-tub job to accommodate a fat set of back tires and a custom narrowed Ford 8.8-inch rear end. It comes out of the hole like a bullet and fires through the trap straight and true. Well, almost always. Under the hood is a 5.3-liter Chevy mill with a stock bottom end. It is being force fed copious amounts of cold, dense air via a pair of 67-millimeter turbos and a Summit Racing intake manifold. The transmission is a Powerglide and this Read More

7-Second Baltic Toyota Supra

June 28th, 2019

The legendary Baltic Supra; this car is the unicorn of the Toyota enthusiast’s world. Along with factory twin turbos, it embodies every quality they respect in this beloved model. Featured in this video is a pristine example of the Baltic Supra. It is being billed as the fastest version that has maintained its factory running gear. Take a look. Owner, Pedro has been 8-years shaving seconds, and fractions of a second, from his elapsed time and causing trap speeds to torpedo upward in this car. He began with a few bolt-ons and a 13-second quarter-mile pass. Today, the car runs Read More

Nissan 240Sx – Boosted LSx Transplant

June 26th, 2019

Nothing I enjoy more than finding a tiny import and integrating it with a honking big built V8 engine. Next, I like to increase performance with a power-adder then continue dumping money into it – lighter, faster, lighter, faster, but…I digress. Still, that’s what is going on here. This guy has stabbed a massive 7.0-liter LSx engine (Texas Speed Re-Sleeve) into this Nissan 240Sx, along with a set of their PRC cylinder heads and a GTX turbocharger. The transmission is a Powerglide and the rear end is on the Ford 9-inch platform. This car squats and hooks up out of Read More

Stick Shift Struggles – RMRW – Day 4

June 26th, 2019

Looking for adventure? Try day-tripping with the “stick shift class” during a drive-only day of Rocky Mountain Race Week. That’s over 400-miles, on pig trails and back-roads in Nebraska and Colorado; with an elite drag (street) racing car using a manually shifted transmission. Don’t forget – that’s after a few days of abuse on the dragstrip. Buckle up! It’s going to get interesting. The day begins with a ride along in a 1964 Ford Fairlane, complete with bench seat and manual transmission. This is one of the slickest restomods you’ll ever find, and it is pulling an enclosed travel trailer. Read More
