World Record Set by Tesla Model S P100D for the Quickest Stock 4 Door Car

October 23rd, 2016

While we took delivery of the Tesla Model S P100D a few weeks ago the South Florida daily rainstorms have been thwarting our attempts to run the car down the 1/4 mile.  Finally the weather is changing and with the first “cold” front coming through and by “cold” front we mean a few hours of temps in the 70’s, we were able to get some 1/4 mile runs in at Palm Beach International Raceway. Electric car drag racing has come a long way since we started drag racing our P85 about 3 years ago, not only have the 1/4 miles times dropped astoundingly from Read More

8-Second Honda Civic

October 21st, 2016

Help me out here – this don’t sound like any Honda Civic that I ever heard. No wonder, this thing is running some big cubic inches and a pair of turbos. Lil’ Lutz was turning heads and making tongues wag, during Drag Week 2016, as he produced consistent 8-second passes (at around 160 mph) in this seriously modified Honda Civic. How did he do that? Well, you basically pull off the hood emblem and drive a race car in under it. Seriously, this is only a shell of an ’89 Honda Civic – it ain’t even front wheel drive anymore Read More

Red GT-R is a Street Thumper

October 19th, 2016

I guarantee it! You are going to love this pretty red Nissan GT-R. Not because of its awesome paint job – and it certainly has one – but because it goes up against some heavy hitters and dominates. Maybe it was a cool night. Every racer knows what it’s like to have a night when your car seems to run better than it ever has; better than you could imagine. Possibly it was one of those nights for the red GT-R. It’s inexplicable – in one way it is great and in another ways it sucks. Your car is running Read More

Honda S2000 Street Hammer

October 17th, 2016

By: Evan Margolis Here’s a sight that’s just about as rare as hen’s teeth (of course you know, hens don’t have any teeth). It is a Honda S2000 sports coupe with a souped up Toyota engine under the bonnet. This hybrid import is equipped to handle the street machines of Texas (a little town down in Mexico), despite having a manual transmission. As stated, the S2000 is running a Toyota power train, including a 2JZ in-line 6-cylinder (built bottom end) engine with a giant turbocharger. The combo is good for about 1,100hp. Things get interesting when two similarly equipped Supra Read More

7-Second Mazda RX-7

October 14th, 2016

This little Mazda RX-7 coupe has got me green with envy! Like most of he gear heads that I know, I only dream of getting down into the 7-second realm. This green streak is no longer rotary powered. It has had a heart transplant. Now there is a 555-cubic inch big block Chevrolet engine, with a pair of Garrett 88-millimeter turbochargers, under the hood. This car looks great but it sounds even more amazing. Enduring the experiences of Drag Week 2016, this team is hit with a hydraulic lifter issue that resulted in a new valve train, lifters, and camshaft. Read More

WANNAGOFAST Georgia Half-Mile Shootout

October 14th, 2016

Howdy racing fans and welcome to Heaven’s Landing in Clayton, Georgia for the wannaGOFAST Georgia 1/2-Mile Shootout. On hand are some of the baddest street cars on the planet; ready to lock horns in head-to-head 1/2-mile dig racing action to top speed. Over 3,000 spectators and 135 competitors came out to give it all they had in what proved to be a monumental undertaking. On Saturday, the top speed of the day was 218.77 mph. On Sunday, Sal Patel posted a new track and World Rear-Wheel Drive record of 224.55 mph in his beast of a Dodge Viper. Check it Read More

No Mercy – Mustang Claims 275 Radial World Record

October 12th, 2016

Welcome race fans to the qualifying rounds of No Mercy 7 at world famous South Georgia Motorsports Park – right off US Hwy 41 in the big town of Cecil, Georgia. Once again, this event is playing host to some of the most radical street machines in the nation. Ziff Hudson is the man of the hour (yes, I said Ziff). He posted a 1/4-mile ET of 4.05-seconds @ 186 mph. This guy is no stranger ground pounding speed as he has been campaigning a Mercury Zephyr on a set of Mickey Thompson 275/60R15 skins for a number of years. Over Read More

Corvette Z06 vs. Porsche 918 Spyder – Really?

October 10th, 2016

This is definitely a drag race because one car gets dragged (to death) the length of the track. As one might expect, a contest between an all-wheel drive 887hp spacecraft and a 650hp rear-wheel drive sports car will easily be won by the spacecraft. Of course, the spacecraft in this scenario is the Porsche 918 Spyder, with its $1-million price tag, and the lesser sports car is the Corvette Z06 at roughly one-tenth the cost of the German monster. The Spyder (it’s more fun when you say it with a German accent) is truly an automotive work of art. It Read More

Audi vs. McLaren – Drag Race

October 10th, 2016

Here is a big-money brawl between two mass-produced supercars. For those who may watch this video and think that all cars of this caliber are the same, keep in mind that this is the baddest Audi on the menu (an R8 Plus Quattro S Tronic) and the most conservative McLaren (a 570S). Take a look. This contest will be a dig race between two cars with similar horsepower specs. The Audi is an all-wheel drive coupe and the McLaren is rear-wheel drive but the R8 outweighs the 570S by more than 400-pounds. With 610hp, the R8 bolts from 0 to Read More

Buncha’ B.S. at King of the Streets Chi-Town

October 4th, 2016

There was a real bunch of BS at one of the nation’s biggest No Prep events recently – Boosted Solutions, Inc that is. The crew at BS campaigned three cars in the Senior Class of this mid western main event; virtually guaranteeing that one of them would make it through to the finals. These guys are serious about forced air induction and even more serious about No Prep. The feature car for this video is a Mustang SVO with a big block Chevrolet engine and twin 94-millimeter turbochargers. This thing really gets down the track in a hurry. Check out Read More
