Drag Racing Huracan vs 918 Spyder

September 9th, 2015

These are two seriously elite supercars and they are lining up head-to-head on a closed airstrip for a one-mile race with a rolling start. Both cars begin rather timidly and proceed gently to 60 mph – then all hell breaks loose! The Lamborghini leaps out in front of the Porsche and scampers down the track at a break-neck pace. Around 140 mph the 918 overtakes the Lambo and leaves him in his wake. As you probably know, the Huracan is Lamborghini’s newest creation. It features all-wheel drive, a 602hp V10 engine, and a price tag of $240k, or about $4,000 Read More

Taking it to the Streets – Turbocharged Spool Bus

September 8th, 2015

  Is it the Spool Bus or short bus? This thing has a school bus safety stop sign hanging from the driver’s door – to each his own, as “they” say. They also say, “It ain’t how you look, it’s what you got under the hood.” Under the hood of this brightly colored S10 Blazer is a fully built 5.7-liter LT1 (bored .030 over to 355-cubic-inches), high-performance cylinder heads, camshaft, and intake manifold, exhaust headers, and a massive 80mm turbocharger. It’s all bolted to a 4L80E transmission (from 3/4-ton truck). The SUV is estimated at 700hp. This mean fire-breathing machine Read More

Hellcat Slayer? Cadillac CTS-V Street Racer

September 7th, 2015

It’s street racing – south of the border style and we got a pair of bad-axs Cadillacs lining up against all comers. The first one is equipped with a 125 shot of nitrous, a camshaft upgrade, and a crank pulley upgrade. He says that he’s making somewhere in the “high sixes” (kinda’ tongue in cheek, if you ask me). He then proceeds to walk the dog on a 750hp Dodge Challenger Hellcat with an aftermarket driveshaft and an E85 tune. Both cars are supercharged from the factory. Next up is a pretty blue Corvette Z06 with a 250 shot of Read More

Heartland Street Racing for Cash

September 4th, 2015

What’s better than some night time street racing? Well, that would be racing for cash prizes and good old fashioned Midwestern braggin’ rights. This video features some of the best heads-up street racing that you will ever see! The scene is set in the deserted streets of an industrial park. The hour is late and all of the familiar competitors (usual suspects) are on hand. Skinny is unloading his 1200hp Twin Turbocharged Fox Mustang off the trailer, there is a late model Cobra with a stock engine and cylinder heads and a 7875 turbo that claims 900hp, an 800hp turbocharged Read More

Volatile V8 Volvo

September 3rd, 2015

This hum-drum looking beater of a Volvo shocked onlookers at the Pike’s Peak Airstrip Attack when he flat out spanked a Lamborghini, a Corvette, and more! The owner affectionately refers to the car with a very nasty name from a movie script before revealing that a 6.0-liter Chevrolet LSX with an 80-millimeter bargain basement ($200 – including shipping and handling) turbocharger and a turbo 400 transmission. This little unassuming sedan is packing 600hp and is certainly opening some eyes on the 1/2-Mile Roll Racing Circuit. This guy seems to be having the time of his life, despite turning 160 mph Read More

1300HP Diamond in the Rough

September 1st, 2015

This clip introduces us to an all-wheel drive 1300hp Diamond Star Motors car prepared by Holland Performance out of Spokane, Washington. The event is the 1/8th-mile Outlaw Armageddon No-Prep Invitational weekend and there are some major competitors in attendance. This little Mitsubishi will have to be “on like hotcakes” to put forth a decent showing in this elite crowd. Under the hood, you will find a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with aluminum connecting rods and a stock cylinder head. It also has a massive Precision 8685 turbocharger (running somewhere between 60 and 70-pounds of boost) and a skillfully crafted custom-fabricated intercooler setup. Custom made Read More

Exotic Supercar Drag Racing

August 28th, 2015

In the words of a famous sugary soft drink character: “Oh, yeah!”  This clip brings us a plethora of exotic beauties from faraway places. This is an event crowded with an unbelievable field of high-end Italian and German sports machines, including Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and Porsches. You really don’t want to miss this action! In Superseries 1, the Lamborghini Aventador and Huracan square-off for some head-to-head dig action. Both cars are using launch control; therefore they leave the line at precisely the same instant. But wait – before the half-mile mark, the Huracan had pulled ahead by two car lengths. By Read More

POV Roll Racing Aventador vs GT-R

August 25th, 2015

Treat yourself to a POV ride during a roll race on a closed airstrip – from the rear bumper of the winning craft. Two supercars line-up to do battle in the California desert heat; the first is a legendary Italian sports car, called the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 and the second is a meek and lowly Nissan GT-R. Seriously, the GT-R is a supercar in its own right but can it really be expected to compete with this powerhouse iconic machine? Let’s talk specs: the Lambo features all-wheel drive, as does the Nissan. The stock GT-R can accelerate from 0 to Read More

Ultimate Street Race Upset! Supra vs Lamborghini

August 24th, 2015

This is a “must see” and hear video. These cars look great and sound even better. In lane one, we have a 2011 TT Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggarra, dyno tested at over 1,700hp. In lane two, a 1,500hp turbocharged Toyota Supra with a Powerglide transmission. It sounds like disaster for the Supra but what happens next is why they actually run the races. The Lambo is equipped with an RS2 twin turbo package and actually delivers 1,775 horsepower to the wheels. All-wheel drive and a 7-speed dual clutch automated manual transmission make sure that traction is never an issue. Meanwhile, the Read More
