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

LS – Street – Fest 2017

September 26th, 2017

Annually, the Holley LS Fest East brings out some of the baddest LS powered (and LS spoiler) street machines on the East Coast. They spend the daylight hours at the track; generally behaving cordially and showing some degree of distinguished restraint. So, how do you suppose these rambunctious hooligans (myself included) entertain themselves when the lights go down and the gates are locked at the drag strip? They hit the streets (of Mexico – of course) for some high-spirited roll racing action. Peel your eyeballs and have a look for yourself. The general rule of the day is 60 mph Read More

New GT-R Quarter-Mile World Record

September 25th, 2017

Another punch has landed in the fight to see who will have the quickest Nissan GT-R in the world at the end of the racing season. The competitors in this main event matchup are Alpha Performance and Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS)/English Racing. You may remember when Gidi broke the previous record for best quarter-mile elapsed time by running a 6.93-second pass. Dipping into the sixes was a huge event but it left many wondering who would strike the next blow. With the boost turned up more than it had ever been before, Robert English and ETS answered that question on Read More

12-Wide Airstrip Drag Race

September 23rd, 2017

Greetings drag racing fans and welcome to what is being billed as the World’s Greatest Drag Race 7. This epic contest of acceleration and speed is being held at Vandenberg Air Force Base – home of the 30th Space Wing of Air Force Space Command. Extreme speed is no stranger to this base or these fighting men. They test rockets on a daily basis. The rockets being tested today will include the Alfa Romeo Giulia, the Aston Martin DB11, the 650hp Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE, the underpowered Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, the pricey Ferrari 488 GTB, the Lexus LC500, the Read More

6-Second GTO Chills Ice Cream Cruise

September 23rd, 2017

With the recent advancements in power-adder technology, it is rarer than hen’s teeth to see a competitive naturally aspirated (N/A) car at the drag strip. It is even more uncommon to see one with a steel body that can run consistent (low) 6-second quarter-mile elapsed times and dominate the class. This fourth-generation GTO is currently powered by a massive 7.4-liter LSx engine that produces approximately 760hp. A Powerglide transmission helps to send those ponies to a narrowed Ford 9-inch rear differential. All the way down the line, this Goat is built on an old school model with the latest components Read More
