This video depicts a night of street racing on a deserted country road and a low-traffic interstate (down in Mexico – of course). The environment is serene but the racing action is red hot. There’s a stout Toyota Supra, a couple of high-powered Evos, a 700hp Subaru Wagon, an 850hp Mustang GT500, and the camera car is an 850hp Trail Blazer SS. This roll racing action is super-intense. The star of this video is an 1150hp Toyota Supra. It is equipped with a 3.4-liter inline 6-cylinder engine with a HeadGames cylinder head, an 88-millimeter turbocharger, Pro EFI fuel injection, and Read More
Here is some premier street racing action from the show-me state. This is one insane night during Mini Cash Days that brought out some big names – like Skinnies Twin-Turbo Fox Mustang and the FR8TRAIN Trans Am. From the famous to the dark-horse no-names; these racers are giving it their all in some very competitive street racing action. There is one standout. It’s a bad Firebird with a big block Chevy (502 cid) engine and an 84-millimeter turbocharger. Of course, the FR8TRAIN is doing his thing and so is Skinny. Both of them won close races. The Farm Truck was Read More
Most of us have had (or will have) a car that we wish we would have held onto. For John Andrade, Sr. it’s his first car and it is a doozie. John has got himself a beautiful 1970 Olds Cutlass 442; running in the 10.0 Index Class. You may recognize the Andrade name. John Andrade, Jr. has gained some degree of fame with his own Olds Cutlasss from a different decade. It is called the Cutty and Jayce Andrade campaigns the impressive Yeti Mustang. John, Sr. has posted a best ET of 8.90-seconds in the 1/4-mile and this is a Read More
With some recent performance upgrades this fantastic looking Supra showed up in Orlando, Florida, at Street Car Takeover. You may remember this car from the Discovery Channel’s Street Outlaws television series. It got drug by the Farm Truck – but that was several hundred-horsepower ago. This hot rod is running a 3.4-liter 2JZ motor with a Real Street RSP1600 package installed. It has a fresh Precision 8385 turbocharger, a 100+ shot direct port nitrous injection, and a heavy-duty TH400 automatic transmission. The combination is good for 1300hp and posted a best ET of 8.17-seconds @ 176 mph. Since this was the Read More
While most drag racers prefer a low-slung ride, this fourth-generation Camaro Z28 owner seems to have actually increased the height of his street sleeper with larger tires and wheels. At any rate, the 6-speed manual transmission must make this thing challenging in competitive situations. The degree of body twist exhibited during the hole-shot (dig racing) indicates that the factory suspension may be overloaded with horsepower. Lets face it – that’s the best kind of problem to have. This attractive pony car is well equipped with a late model (2006 Silverado) 5.3-liter engine with a camshaft upgrade, stronger connecting rod bolts, Read More
This car bears the moniker ‘MULLET’ after the owner/driver’s hairstyle. This particular hairstyle is often described as ‘business in the front – party in the back’. Well, this Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera must save the party for the street because on the strip (during this TX2K event) it was all about business. There are multiple 200+ mph passes. As impressive as a stock Superleggera is, you’ll never squeeze 213 mph out of it in the half-mile. This car has been modified with an Underground Racing Twin Turbo Package. The package includes twin billet Precision 62-millimeter turbochargers with Tial wastegates and Read More
We have some video and time slip data from ToTheFloor of the first real world 1/4 mile run by the new McLaren 675LT that just happens to making it’s first pass vs a Lamborghini Huracan at Palm Beach International Raceway. The McLaren 675LT drops some weight from the standard 650S, weighing in at around 3,000 pounds and adds power as well, making 666HP from it’s 3.8L V8 Twin Turbocharged engine. These stats tower over the Huracan’s 3,400 pounds and naturally aspirated 5.2L V10 making 610HP. The only advantage the Huracan has during a 1/4 mile race it’s it’s all wheel Read More
While we’ve seen a bunch of races between the Tesla Model S and various supercars, this is the first we’ve seen of the all new 7 passenger 5,600 pound Model X Tesla SUV racing. The Model X in the video is a P90D with the optional $10,000 Ludicrous mode going up against a bright red and loud Ferrari F430 with the F1 6 speed transmission. While the power to weight ratio is heavily in the Ferrari’s favor, the monstrous amount of instant torque and all wheel drive in the Tesla play a big role in this race.
Now, get this! This Toyota MR2 (mid-engine setup) is equipped with a Honda drivetrain. That includes a K20 2.0-liter engine that has been fitted with dart racing sleeves, JE Pistons, Manley valve train components, a stock cylinder head (camshaft upgrade), and a 66-millimeter turbo making between 25 and 36-pounds of boost. The combination is capable of churning out over 900hp and it is shifted using a sequential transmission. Right out of the gate, this Toyota dusts a 700hp Evo, then rubs up against a GXR1000 sportbike. The Suzuki ain’t having none of it and whips the MR2 handily. Then he Read More
