Turbo Tahoe Tire Toaster

October 17th, 2017

This is one bad grocery-getter. Shane Cook decided to take his full-bodied Chevrolet Tahoe and transform it into a 9-second (@ 135 – 140 mph) tire smoking monster. This clip takes us from the dyno room (857whp and 832 lb.-ft. of torque) to the street and finally to the drag strip. Once Shane gets the Tahoe to the strip, he whips up on as many Camaros and Mustangs as he can find. The Chuck Wagon (Cook’s) is equipped with a 5.3-liter engine that has been upgraded with a pair of ported 862 cylinder heads, a Tick Performance camshaft, and a Read More

McLaren 720S runs 9’s in the 1/4 Mile with the Lamborghini Huracan Peformante

October 16th, 2017

We head out to Palm Beach International Raceway with the McLaren 720S and DoctaM3’s brand new Lamborghini Huracan Performate for some drag racing down the 1/4 mile. While the weather is still really hot down here in South Florida, we managed to get the McLaren 720s into the 9’s in completely stock form on OEM street tires and make some test passes with the Performate as well. Best run for the McLaren 720s was 9.98 @ 141 MPH while the Lamborghini Huracan Performance did 10.7 @ 129 MPH.  We also had the Racelogic Performancebox in the cars and recorded a Read More

1964 GTO – Street Car Takeover

October 13th, 2017

With the memory of their deceased friend Mike as inspiration, this loyal group of friends and racing enthusiasts prepared this 1964 Pontiac GTO for the drag strip. After torqueing every last bolt and buckling Mike’s urn and ashes into the front seat, they set off for Tucson and the Street Car Takeover. Little did they know what a dramatic weekend of racing action was in store. The Goat was a one-owner car, purchased new by Mike’s dad. This band of compadres rebuilt the muscle car with a 428 Pontiac stroker kit (bored over to 467 cubic-inches). It has all the Read More

Thin Mint – 6-Second Mustang

October 11th, 2017

This brilliantly hued Mustang is much more than just a pretty face. It manages to post consistent 6-second elapsed times and win races in the process. To answer the obvious question: The paint job is a mixture of a seventies Ford Mustang Mach 1 color and (of all things) an Aston Martin shade. I’m not sure whether I like it or not but it is certainly unique. I definitely like what has been done under the hood. The best thing that can happen to a small coupe is a huge engine. The Thin Mint has a 5.4-liter modular unit from Read More

Street Racing – 1500HP Bugatti Chiron

October 2nd, 2017

With four-turbochargers and a meticulously crafted W16 engine, the all-wheel drive Bugatti Chiron is priced at a cool $3.5-million. This monster of a vehicle leaves conventional performance vehicles in its dust – on the street or track. Under the disillusioned premise that we could stay in the same zip code with the Bugatti Chiron, we hit the streets (of Mexico) in our Jaguar SVT for a bit of a video adventure. Keep in mind that the Jag is capable of making 575hp and it’s one of the fastest – if not the single fastest – production vehicle that jaguar has Read More

2018 Dodge Demon – Track Testing

September 30th, 2017

Just when you thought it was safe to go back on the streets – the SRT division of Dodge rolls out the Challenger SRT Demon. It makes the Hellcat seem like a pussy cat by bringing production car performance into a whole new realm. This video documents real world track testing of this incredible beast. It is almost unbelievable that a production car has the capacity to produce 840hp (808hp on pump gas) and 770 lb.-ft. of torque; much less accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.3-seconds (and that’s not to mention a quarter-mile elapsed time of less Read More

6-Second Toyota Corolla Goes Haywire

September 29th, 2017

Buckle up racing fans and get ready for a wild ride! It doesn’t get much wilder than (low) 6-second elapsed times (quarter-mile) at 230+ MPH – unless you are doing it in a tiny Toyota Corolla (3/4 chassis modified) with an inline 6-cylinder engine. The power plant is a single turbocharged (bigger than an 88-millimeter) 2JZ Toyota unit. This crew managed to produce pretty consistent low 6-second (6.04 @ 236.88 mph) elapsed times that had everybody wondering if they would dip into the fives. I think it is going to happen soon. While some Toyota purists consider the AE86 Trueno Read More

8-Second Old School Cadillac Coupe de Ville

September 29th, 2017

When I say that this car is a massive sleeper – I mean that it is huge. It’s a 1978 Cadillac Coupe de Ville and it is a big and heavy ride. This thing has all the bells and whistles but can a giant luxury coupe also be quick? You can answer that question for yourself. Is a car that posts consistent 8-second elapsed times at 150 mph (quarter-mile) considered quick – in a word – yes. This beast showed up at LS Fest with a professionally built 565 cubic-inch LS motor and a pair of turbochargers. I don’t know Read More

Big Block Twin Turbo Geo Tracker

September 27th, 2017

This innovative crew of gearheads has taken what must be lower than whale guts on the scale of high-performance vehicles and turned it into a beast of a drag car. In factory trim, the Geo Tracker is under powered and under appreciated. So, how do you fix it? Well, you take out the shaky four-cylinder and install a giant 7.4-liter big block Chevrolet engine with a pair of Borg Warner 6676 turbochargers (thanks to B3R). It is also running Holley fuel injection and a Rossler transmission. With the capacity to put 900hp to the rear wheels, you can’t go wrong. Read More

Red Demon DSM – No Prep Banger

September 26th, 2017

Allow me to begin by saying that if you can make it to the final round of any drag racing event with a four-cylinder powered vehicle, kudos to you! On the other hand – this is certainly not your average four-cylinder. This is a Boostin Performance built 2.0-liter (4G63) with aluminum connecting rods. It is being choked by an 86-millimeter Precision turbocharger and a methanol injection system. The car is making an incredible 85-pounds of boost and is capable of producing 1,500hp (from a four-cylinder!). The event is Chitown King of the Streets and the Red Demon DSM is competing Read More
