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

9,000 RPM Rotary Powered Mazda Belches Flames

August 27th, 2015

It seems that every time you see a Mazda RX7 racing on the streets these days, there is a Chevrolet LS engine under the hood. Despite the rugged reliability of the 1.3-liter rotary power plant, most racers opt for the added cubic inches of a V8. Honestly, I would be tempted to do the same. So, it is sort of refreshing (and rare) when you run across an RX7 that sports the original (albeit radically modified) rotary engine. This little import features a ball bearing T6 turbocharger (turned way down). It is making 700hp and it is yet to be Read More

Dyno Testing a Blown Methanol Monster

August 26th, 2015

Everyone knows that the guys at Nelson Racing Engines (NRE) are pushing the envelope to the very edge with regards to maximum performance. This video shows you just how far these professionals are willing to go to extrapolate every ounce of horsepower from the last cubic inch of their popular handcrafted, custom built crate motors. Running a dynamometer is a risky proposition, even when the engine is bolted into a chassis, but when you are talking about testing loose supercharged engines anything can happen. Now add in copious amounts of a volatile and highly combustible fuel known as methanol-alcohol and 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

You will be hard pressed to find another European sports coupe that is “hitting a lick” like this. Check out all the fun, as this well heeled Beamer gets better and better as the day wears on and turns the best times of the day in the cool temps that darkness brings to the New Mexico night. There is a 355-cubic-inch Chevrolet V8 crammed under that hood, with a huge roots-style supercharger mounted on top. Power Read More

Street Envy – 750hp TT Green Camaro

August 18th, 2015

Check out this fantastic looking emerald green fifth-generation Camaro. This thing will have you green with envy – street envy, that is. A Hellion twin turbo kit with an AMS 2000 boost controller, a Psycho performance tuner, a camshaft upgrade, and a 3600 RPM stall converter are among the highlighted modifications on this bad Bowtie. The engine is a stock 6.2-liter. The Camaro makes short work of the first two competitors; a souped-up TT Infiniti G35 and a 685hp supercharged Ford Lightning F150 pickup. The final matchup proved to be a bit more of a challenge, though. The 750hp Mitsubishi Read More

Colorado Cash Days – Insane Street Racing

August 12th, 2015

Fourteen of the baddest street machines in the West have gathered at an undisclosed location in the Colorado night. Each of these teams has plans to take someone else’s cash, eat their cookies, and claim bragging rights as king of the Colorado streets. All-wheel drive, front-wheel drive, and rear-wheel drive – old cars, new cars, and even trucks will do battle to see who can claim the number-one spot in the 2015 edition of Colorado Cash Days. The highlights of this feature video include a 800hp 1969 Camaro, a beautiful red Chevy Nova with a 400-cubic-inch engine and an 80mm Read More

Three-and-a-Half-Ton Ram 1500 Eats Sports Cars

August 7th, 2015

Nick Eklund’s 7,000-pound Ram 1500 pickup is dressed to kill, in a set of Hoosier drag slicks with four-doors and a 2-inch lowering kit. This monster is all about eating up the competition with a side of asphalt. As you can see in this clip, this Ram is quick out of the hole and it blasts through the trap. All of that power and torque comes from a 5.9-liter Cummins Turbo diesel with a stock block, a Hamilton camshaft, Manley pushrods, an Innovative Diesel Tune, and a Fire Funk S366 turbocharger mated to a Ryan Wilson 480 transmission and a Read More

World’s Fastest Hellcat Sedan?

August 6th, 2015

Our videographer documents this High Horse Performance (HHP) tuned 2015 Dodge Charger Hellcat (in Redline Red) posting a 10.57 @ 130 mph in the 1/4-mile. To make matters worse on all of you Hellcat driving hard-tails, this grocery-getter is piloted down the 1320 by a pretty lady. Adding further insult to injury is the fact that this clip was taken on a 90+ degree day, adding validity to the claim that on a cooler day this pretty kitty will do even better. The 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, with a 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI, comes right out of the crate producing 640hp. Read More
