Crazy Fast Aussie Sedan

August 25th, 2017

Produced in Australia, the 2000 Holden Commodore is basically the equivalent of a Chevrolet Lumina. While it is sold as a performance sedan, it is still considered a family car and an ultimate grocery-getter of sorts. Well, with a dyno test, some street hits and multiple track passes (on this video), even I can see that this is no ordinary Commodore. I guess the first clue was the two massive turbochargers that are nestled in under the front bumper. Let’s take a look under the hood: It all begins with an all-aluminum, 440 cubic-inch, Dart LSx based engine built by Read More

1500HP Procharged Duster

August 25th, 2017

It’s impossible to catch a ghost. Scientist and paranormal experts have tried for years to capture any form of ghost but – up until now – no ghost! This aptly named (The Ghost) 1972 Plymouth Duster also proved very elusive at the NEAD No Prep Throwdown in Oskaloosa, Iowa. With a 572 cubic-inch HEMI engine and an F2 Procharger, it might do you well to be scared of this Ghost. Despite making approximately 1,500hp (on 21-pounds of boost), the Ghost is still riding on stock suspension (front and rear). A TorqueFlite 727 transmission transfers all that power to the rear Read More

1300HP TT Street Mustangs

August 24th, 2017

Once categorized as fantasy, these 8-second street cars have all the creature comforts combined with mind-numbing power. This pair of pony cars competed in multiple roll racing classes at Street Car Takeover in Orlando, Florida before moving on to Orlando Speedworld for some impressive dig racing runs. Each one of these Fords are equipped with a modular Coyote engine. A Hellion turbocharger kit, with a pair of 6466 turbochargers, provides the forced air induction. These Hellion kits are slightly modified to achieve maximum boost and a methanol injection system keeps intake air cooler and denser for optimum fuel atomization. This Read More

Tesla Model X P100D Ludicrous sets World Record Racing a Lamborghini Aventador SV Drag Racing

August 20th, 2017

We got a call a few weeks ago from a Lamborghini Aventador SV owner (also a Tesla owner) asking to setup a race between his SV and a Model S P100D to see how they compare during some drag races.  Interestingly enough we also had been contacted by an X P100D owner that wanted to try his at the track as well.  After a few of calls we brought out both a Model X and Model S P100D out to to make it happen at Palm Beach International Raceway. Since there haven’t been many Model Xs running at the drag Read More

Square-Nose Chevy C10 Dominates Cash Days

August 17th, 2017

Greetings race fans and welcome to the Midwest Slow Car Cash Days. This is an event for competitors with 800hp or less. Please say hello to our feature truck. It is a gutted, tubbed, and caged Chevrolet C10 pickup with a small block engine and a nitrous injection. While there is nothing fancy about this C10, with its matte military themed paint scheme and standard steel wheels, it is consistent and quick coming out of the hole. The first contest in this single elimination event pits a great looking Nova SS against the C10. The pickup hooks up well and Read More

Street Digs – APR VW Golf R Slaughters

August 16th, 2017

You gotta’ love it when the underdog pulls out the victory against all odds. That is the feeling I get watching this Volkswagen Golf R as it lines up against the likes of the mighty Cadillac CTS-V and some top shelf Bavarian monsters. The VW Golf R is an all-out performance version of the popular Golf GTi. It rolls off the assembly line with a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine that is capable of producing 292hp. The R package yields sport tuned suspension, all-wheel drive, 18-inch wheels, and optional 6-speed automatic transmission with launch control. With APR turbocharger upgrades, you Read More

The Kitchen LS RX7 Tames the Track

August 7th, 2017

Once upon a time… some drag strip clowns told Brandi Sharp (she is extra sharp – by the way) to “get back in the kitchen”. Well, Brandi liked that idea so much that she brought her kitchen to the track and now she whips their tails with it. As you have already figured out – Brandi’s kitchen is an LS (6.0-liter) powered Mazda RX7. The engine has forged connecting rods and pistons and a large shot (300hp) of nitrous. The little coupe is making around 700hp and Brandi really knows how to use it. Brandi is a competitive No-Prep racer Read More

Track Rolls & Digs – 1,400HP Turbo Mustang

July 31st, 2017

Greetings racing fans – this video brings you two kinds of fun! The feature car – a late-model Mustang – is built for street racing but moving onto the drag strip eliminates the stress of being on the lookout for John Law and possibly crashing into a minivan full of civilians. It’s a good alternative when available. Street Car Takeover in Denver offers racers a chance to get in some roll racing and dig racing. If you can believe it; this couple is out at the track on the day before their blessed nuptials. Oh well, the couple that plays Read More

Nissan GT-R vs. Audi R8 V10 Plus

July 28th, 2017

This is an all-out drag race between two of the premier sports cars in production, right now. Both cars feature powerful engines and all-wheel drivetrains but only one can emerge victorious in this matchup. So, which one will it be? Will the Japanese win the day or will the Germans make them rue the day? Let’s check it out. The 2016 Nissan GT-R Black Edition uses a smaller engine than the Audi but adds forced air induction. It is a 3.8-liter twin turbocharged mill that is mated to a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. One of the features that makes this Read More

A New Kind of Hybrid – 2JZ 240sx

July 28th, 2017

Greetings drag racing fans! Allow me to introduce a new type of hybrid propulsion system to you all. This is not your average, so-so, hum-drum gasoline over electric hybrid; it is a Nissan over Toyota, with a healthy dose of turbocharged/nitrous. The owner calls it a V8 Killer. Never mind the backyard paint job – this Nissan finds a way to consistently get down the track with very little tire slip, despite being rear-wheel drive. The inline 6-cylinder Toyota 2JZ is professionally built and is being force fed by a massive 7675 Precision turbocharger (45-pounds of boost). It has a Read More
