Girl on Girl Action – Drag Racing That Is

June 17th, 2015

Nearly every red-blooded American male loves a good catfight; a little slap and tickle or a late night pillow fight between two beautiful women. This clip shows something even better than that. Here is some girl on girl action (blonde vs. brunette, no less) with the added attraction of some awesome automobiles travelling at high speeds. In the left lane we have Jessica (the blonde) in her stock C7 Z06 Corvette (supercharged 6.2-liter V8). This is her first time. Her first pass down the drag strip – you rascals – but she is confident in her Chevy. In the right lane Read More

Monstrous 1,100HP Ram Cummins Diesel

June 12th, 2015

Join the fun as this Ram pickup proceeds to smoke out the crowd at the Real Street Dyno booth; not before putting up some pretty big numbers, though. To the cheers of delighted onlookers, the big turbocharged diesel revs high and floods the sparkling new dyno booth of Real Street with thick black smoke (despite the makeshift ventilation system). Where diesels are concerned, smoke equals horsepower, so those in attendance were in for a treat when the owner of the Ram took to the street and put on a show, creating even more smoke by spinning the tires.

1,325HP GT-R vs. Porsche 918 Spyder

June 8th, 2015

Two of the most prominent supercars on the planet square-off in this epic battle of speed and driving technique. This clip provides video evidence than a $100k supercar can tangle with a $1-million supercar and come out on top. Although the Nissan has been drastically modified (probably at least an additional $50k), many would consider it the underdog in any race that includes the legendary high-performance-hybrid Porsche 918 – not so fast! The Porsche 918 Spyder utilizes a mid-mounted 4.6-liter V8 internal combustion engine and a series of lithium-ion battery powered electric motors to generate 887-horsepower and accomplish a stunning Read More

Lamborghini Huracan vs LP570 Super Trofeo on the Dyno

June 6th, 2015

While the Lamborghini Hurcan has many significant advantages over it’s predecessor, the Gallardo, including more power from the 5.2L V10, a 7 speed dual clutch transmission along with dynamic steering and updated launch control systems, we thought it would be interesting to compare it against the baddest and most extreme Gallardo produced, the LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale. Only 150 of the Gallardo LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale’s were produced and while they were rated at 570HP, there were rumors that the car was making more power.  That additional power combined with a host of weight saving carbon fiber parts and an even faster shifting 6 speed e-gear transmission Read More

Tesla Model S P85D breaks the Dyno Video

May 16th, 2015

While we had trouble getting our Tesla Model S P85D to stay put on a Mustang Dyno back in January due to it’s massive amounts of instant torque, another Tesla P85D owner ran into similar but more destructive issues when trying to dyno his P85D.  After going full power from a slow roll on an AWD dyno, the instant torque was measured at 700+ ft-lbs before breaking one of the dyno belts. On a previous run where they gradually applied power they measured 435HP and had the Tesla up to it’s 155 MPH top speed on the dyno. Check out the Read More

Super Diesel Dyno and Drag Racing

May 14th, 2015

The Super Diesel Shootout, presented by Shell, features some of the most powerful diesel powered light-duty trucks on the planet. There is even a diesel powered top fuel dragster. The Overkill single-cab Chevrolet Silverado in this video not only made a 9.47-second pass @ 145.37 mph but also posted a high-water mark of 1,700-horsepower and 2,500 lb.-ft. of torque on the dyno – that’s right, 2,500.

From the Dyno to the Dragstrip: 1100-HP Mustang Cobra

April 27th, 2015

Check out this awesome looking blue flamed 2003 Mustang Cobra. The Las Vegas based Voodoo Racing Mustang dominated the street car class and put a spell on me during this month’s TX2K15 down in Houston, Texas. If the paint job resembles a lightning strike, then what is under the hood certainly provides the thunder; the 4.6-liter V8 has factory four-valve cylinder heads, it is sans the Eaton roots type blower, and a 94-millimeter turbocharger now forces air into the intake. The owner/operator of this quick pony car estimated horsepower near 1300 but today’s dyno results flagged only 1100-horsepower. Nonetheless, it Read More

Hellcat e85 Conversion Increased Horsepower Reduced Emissions

April 22nd, 2015

Everyone knows that the 2015 Dodge Hellcat is built for speed and performance with a factory horsepower rating of 707 (at the crankshaft). What you may not know is this: Serious Horsepower (SHP) out of Houston, Texas, is in the business of making high-performance machines (such as the Hellcat) produce even more horsepower while running on cleaner e85 fuel. In this video, the factory Hellcat posted 672 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque (at the rear wheels) burning 93-octane fuel. After the car was expertly modified by SHP, using HP Tuners 2.25 Software, a Kenne Bell Boost-a-Pump, and upgraded fuel Read More

Viper TA vs Corvette C7 Z06 on the Dyno

January 7th, 2015

Nine Ball Garage took a 2014 Dodge Viper TA and a 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 to KP Racing for some back to back dyno runs to see just how these two competitors perform on the dyno. The Viper TA powered by a 8.4L V10 put down 540 horsepower and 517 ft-lbs of torque while the Corvette Z06 powered by a 6.2L supercharged V8 put down 564 HP and 566 ft-lbs of torque.   Dyno Graphs Viper TA Dyno Graph Corvette Z06 Dyno Graph Source: Nine Ball Garage

Tesla Model S P85D Shocks the Dyno with 864 ft-lbs of Torque

December 27th, 2014

We had some time with a brand new Tesla Model S P85D to do some initial testing before our StreetCarDrags event on January 18th, 2015 where we’ll have 12 Tesla Model S cars racing themselves and other exotic cars down the drag strip at Palm Beach International Raceway.   Since the Florida weather provided us with pouring rain all day and the track was closed, performance testing wasn’t quite an option, although as you’ll see later, we did some launches in the rain and the Tesla did amazing. Instead we headed over to see Jack at Horsepower Logic in Royal Palm Beach, FL to strap Read More
