Crazy Fast Aussie Sedan

August 25th, 2017

Produced in Australia, the 2000 Holden Commodore is basically the equivalent of a Chevrolet Lumina. While it is sold as a performance sedan, it is still considered a family car and an ultimate grocery-getter of sorts. Well, with a dyno test, some street hits and multiple track passes (on this video), even I can see that this is no ordinary Commodore. I guess the first clue was the two massive turbochargers that are nestled in under the front bumper. Let’s take a look under the hood: It all begins with an all-aluminum, 440 cubic-inch, Dart LSx based engine built by Read More

1500HP TT Silverado Terrorizes the Streets

August 3rd, 2017

Despite the fact that they often have problems getting hooked-up, I dearly love fast pickup trucks. Another thing that I hold near and dear is street racing down the (Mexico) interstate on a warm summer night. As much as I love dig racing – there are times when I just need to cut loose and feel the wind in what’s left of my hair. This video combines these two things; pickup trucks and roll racing down the interstate on a warm summer night. Add some sophisticated GoPro camera equipment and multiple camera angles and you end up with a top-quality Read More

2.000HP 1965 Chevrolet C10 Pickup

July 21st, 2017

This fantastic looking 1965 Chevy C10 is being purpose-built to rule the street racing scene in the hometown of a guy named Chris Red – something or other. At the heart of this beast is a 400 cubic-inch, LS based, Dart Racing block. In order to make the LS durable enough to withstand this massive amount (2,187hp @ 6,900 RPM)) of horsepower, Steve Morris Engines has recently gone through the engine and they are currently in the process of tuning it (with owner, Chris R.) in their state-of-the-art dyno facility. It has a specially ground hydraulic roller camshaft with a Read More

Going Pink – New Women’s Half-Mile Record

July 5th, 2017

What trumps a beautiful blonde in a pink Lambo? That’s an easy one – a beautiful blonde, in a hot pink Lamborghini, breaking a world record for top speed in the half-mile! The backdrop is the Pike’s Peak Airstrip Attack sponsored by ShiftS3ctor and Revolution. This is an event that attracts the best-of-the-best in half-mile and mile cars, including entries like this one from OB Prestige. The shimmering pink car is a 2015 Lamborghini Huracan. In stock trim, the Huracan makes “only” 600hp. It blasts from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.5-seconds. Add a Heffner Performance twin turbocharger setup Read More

NRE Street Sleeper – 1000HP Camaro

June 27th, 2017

Nelson Racing Engines (NRE) has made it their business to be on the cutting edge in the production of turbocharged performance. As it turns out – they make a pretty good video, too. Being sort of a sneaky, bottom-feeding, street racer myself, there is nothing that I appreciate more than a seriously modified street sleeper. I am speaking of a vehicle that is capable of gapping almost anything on the street but you can’t differentiate it from stock without some inside information. A top-shelf street sleeper will appear stock even when the hood is open. This 1,000hp 2013 Chevrolet Camaro Read More

426 C.I.D. HEMI Build and Dyno

June 21st, 2017

The 426 HEMI engine is a true icon of the muscle car era. It was an option in such memorable automobiles as the 1955 Chrysler 300M, the 1969 Plymouth Barracuda, the 1970 Dodge Super Bee, and the 1970 Plymouth Superbird. Nick Paranitis, of Nick’s Garage in Quebec, Canada has made a name for himself by building and selling HEMI engines. Nicks Mopar engines can be found in some of the most critically recognized Dodge, Chrysler, and Plymouth restorations in the world. This video introduces us to Nick and documents his breaking point. You see, Nick is plum fed up with Read More

700WHP Gen2 Camaro – Dyno

June 2nd, 2017

Too big, too bulky, too long, and too heavy are all adjectives that were used to describe the Gen2 Camaro. It is about what you would expect for a version of a muscle car that replaced a very popular original. It seems that this car owner has found a cunning way to get around the added girth of the (Z28 version?) split-bumper coupe. It all begins with a run-of-the-mill 4.8-liter Chevy engine with a camshaft upgrade. Add an 80-millimeter turbocharger to the lighter engine and you have a 700hp behemoth that is geared to tame the track. A Powerglide transmission Read More

Super Sleeper Impala SS

May 26th, 2017

This video is stacked with awesome looking high-performance automobiles. It documents a car show which took place at Performance HQ in San Antonio, Texas. Performance HQ has a reputation of creating outlandish street and strip cars with optimum performance and reliability in mind. This clip captures what was taking place during their grand re-opening and the crew literally opens their doors to show us some inside information on project cars and customer builds. With the showroom full of unique offerings, the parking lot began to fill up with all kinds of modified transportation. There were exotics, including names like Rolls Read More

Cowboy Corvette – 650HP Silverado

May 25th, 2017

What’s an old saddle tramp to do when he has a Corvette heart and a Pickup life? That’s exactly where Bruce Lethco was at in his own life. What made matters even worse is that Bruce’s wife was dead set against him having a high-powered sports car. Along about there is when he discovered Armageddon. No, not the bloody end-of-times battle but Armageddon Turbo Systems. Bruce’s 2014 Chevy Silverado was pretty powerful, according to pickup truck standards, but keep in mind that old Bruce has a Corvette heart. Luckily for him, Armageddon hooked him up with a twin turbo system Read More

POV – 9-Second McLaren 570S

May 18th, 2017

This video introduces us to what is officially the first McLaren 570S to ever post a 9-second quarter-mile elapsed time. That makes this British built supercar a world record holder of sorts. In my humble opinion, the McLaren 570S is a seriously amazing automobile, in factory trim. Each (entry level) mid-engine 570S that rolls off the assembly line (there are only about 4,000 produced annually) does so with a 502hp, 3.8-liter, twin-turbocharged, V8 engine that also makes 443 lb.-ft. of torque. It comes with a sequential, 7-speed gearbox and it is rear-wheel drive. In stock trim, the 570S can accelerate Read More
