1200HP Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4

April 18th, 2018

Here is another one of those cars that I wish I had paid a little more attention to when they were plentiful. Now these things are as hard to find as chicken’s teeth and when you happen across one; it is super nice. That’s certainly the case with this owner-built machine. It looks like a million bucks and sounds even better. This 1997 model all-wheel drive sports coupe has been rebuilt from the ground up and modified with a single Precision (7675) turbocharger. Since there aren’t a ton of companies offering aftermarket performance parts for this particular car (let alone Read More

Heavy Chevy – 1972 Yenko Nova

April 13th, 2018

Competing in the Limited Drag Radial (3,33o-pound minimum) Class, Justin Martin and friends are campaigning one of the most stunning muscle cars to ever roll through the bleach box.        The ride is a 1972 Yenko Nova with a billet big block Chevrolet engine. The engine is built by Pete Harrell of Harrell Engine & Dyno (HED) in Mooresville, North Carolina. A pair of Garrett 88-millimeter turbochargers cram copious amounts of dense air into the massive engine and a Holley fuel injection system keeps the giddy-up juice flowing. A Mark Micke (M&M) transmission handles the shifting duties. Today, you will Read More

Corvette King – 2010 ZR1 vs 2019 ZR1

April 5th, 2018

Greetings drag racing fans and welcome to the Cecil County Dragway for an epic battle between two variants of the big, bad ZR1 ‘Vette. We are all looking forward to seeing what these bad bowties can do but the staging lanes are packed with awesome cars of virtually every variety. There is a bad looking vintage Mopar, a Porsche, numerous Mustangs (of all types), and even a McLaren. All that is in addition to the feature race between these two Chevys.   The star of the show is the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. As far as we can tell, this Read More

Exotic Street Racing – Puerto Rico

March 31st, 2018

The fine and friendly folks of Puerto Rico really know how to do street racing. Sure, they are a nice bunch of competitors but the cars are nothing short of amazing! The initial contest is between a BMW M4 and a C7 Corvette Z06. The Beemer has a turbo upgrade, high performance exhaust, and heavy-duty, dual-disc clutch kit. It’s capable of putting down approximately 720hp. The Z06 has undergone a pulley upgrade with some high performance exhaust and it has been performance tuned. It is making 640hp (roughly). Let’s climb into the passenger seat of the M4 and take a Read More

1700hp Cadillac CTS-V – World’s Fastest

February 28th, 2018

No, this ain’t another episode of the “Beverly Hillbillies”. It’s Street Car Takeover Atlanta from beautiful Commerce, Georgia (approximately 50-miles northeast of the A-T-L). It only looks like the Clampetts because it opens up with a gang of rednecks (Hot Rod Dynamics) piling out of a four-door Cadillac. We quickly discover that this is not your average Cadillac and not just a bunch of hillbillies. This car is one of the baddest sedans that we have ever seen and the current world record holder (Cadillac CTS-V) in the quarter-mile (7.65-seconds @ 179 mph). Today, this crew will attempt to supercede Read More

Ugly Duckling – 850whp Nissan 240sx – Street Hits

February 25th, 2018

Keeping it real and keeping it Nissan is what Andre Cargill (#DRETUNED) is all about. This video chronicles the building of the Ugly Duckling 240sx and gives you a chance to witness car owner (and tuning guru) Andre as he walks you through the eleven-year ordeal that has yielded this four-cylinder street monster. All the while he is blasting down the interstate (somewhere in Mexico) between exits. There is also some great dyno and dragstrip footage.   In keeping this 240 all Nissan, Andre built a 2.4-liter (KA24 DE-T) four-cylinder himself. The intake and exhaust manifolds are custom-crafted and beautifully Read More

1500HP Mustang Cobra – Half-Mile

January 8th, 2018

This video delivers a very interesting Ford Mustang (or conglomeration of Mustangs) that rolled onto the airstrip for WannaGoFast with very little fanfare. After blasting through the half-mile (with the roar of a jet plane), and posting a 188 mph top speed, all eyes seemed to be on this cobbled-up pony car. Let’s have a look. At first glance, this slick ‘Stang does not have the appearance of a 1,500hp monster. It looks stock and is well behaved in traffic. However, if you look a bit closer, you will find that this car is far from ordinary. It began as Read More

AWD Civic – 7-Second Beast  

December 22nd, 2017

It’s difficult to make my mouth say that a snot green Honda hatchback is a beast but this car certainly has beastly characteristics. It comes out of the hole like a bullet and flies through the trap in the 7-second range (consistently). When you consider that it blows through the quarter-mile at approximately 190 -195 mph, it is even more impressive and hard to believe that it is a four-banger. The engine is a K20 (2.0-liter) Honda unit with a big turbocharger. The owner explains that it has dyno tested at 1,100whp but he has the boost turned up even Read More
