Nissan 370Z Nismo vs. Subaru WRX STI – Track Test

May 12th, 2018

One is all-wheel drive. One has a few more horsepower. One is turbocharged and the other is naturally aspirated. Both are a beautiful hue of red but only one can be the winner in this comprehensive contest that includes a drag race, some practical driving, and even some pretty tight turns. The STI is of course, a sedan, It uses a smaller (2.5-liter I4) engine and a turbocharger to make its 305hp. It is both intercooled and port fuel injected. The Subaru is the all-wheel drive vehicle and it features a variety of drive modes with three on-board differentials. It Read More

Now, what we have here is a group of fun loving car enthusiasts taking to the highways of Mexico for some 40 and 50 mph roll racing.

It seems like everything on four-wheels is lining up to take a run at the new  Dodge Challenger SRT Demon.

Coffeyville Street Drags – No Prep Falcon

May 8th, 2018

Welcome drag racing fans to the Coffeyville Street Drags in Coffeyville, Kansas. Competing in the Outlaw Class, our feature car is a vintage Ford Falcon with a cool wrap. Oh, wait a minute – my finger just fell into a rust hole – this ain’t a wrap. This body is actually rusty with a patina that belies its many decades behind the blue oval. So, the Ford Falcon belongs to Paul Witty who built this bad ride in his garage. He dragged it right out of a field and breathed new life into her by installing a 521 cubic-inch big Read More

2019 Corvette ZR1 – Manual vs. Auto

April 19th, 2018

The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 has had tongues flapping and chins wagging since well before its physical release, several weeks ago. The excitement is well deserved. The 2019 ZR1 is the most capable Corvette mass-produced to date. It can produce an astounding 755hp and 715 lb.-ft. of torque (in stock trim) and it is equipped with some of the most advanced aerodynamic features ever seen on a production automobile. This article will compare several videos in an attempt to determine whether the ZR1 equipped with the 8-speed automatic transmission is nearly a full-second quicker (in the quarter-mile) than the same Read More
