Street Hits – 700HP Stock Block EVO 8

May 25th, 2018

In these days of awesome aftermarket high-performance components, it’s not that rare to encounter a 700hp street car. In most cases, big ponies equate to a built, balanced, and blueprinted V8 engine with some type of power-adder. That is precisely what makes our feature car so unique. The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution is no stranger to import performance car enthusiasts. There are some extremely powerful EVO entries on the horizon and many continue to run the 4G (inline 4-cylinder) engine platform (built and sleeved to handle the extra power). What sets our feature car apart is that it is capable of Read More

World’s Baddest GT-R – 3000HP

May 21st, 2018

Well, Alpha Performance seems to have reset the bar once again with their latest entry into the realm of the extremely modified Nissan GT-R. After posting a weekend best top speed of 228 mph in the roll racing event, the OB Prestige owned car ripped off a trio of near 6-second passes in the quarter-mile drag races. Personal best elapsed times of 7.11, 7.06, and 7.05-seconds were all recorded before this mirror finish sports coupe was put back on the trailer. All this is accomplished with stock diameter tires on front and rear. There is also a dyno test. The Read More

Beware of Snakes – 200 MPH Viper ACR

May 12th, 2018

Running in the rear-wheel drive class, this Gen V Dodge Viper ACR is a fresh build with factory aerodynamics, air conditioning, power steering, and 19-inch wheels. This is literally a street car that can manage 200 mph in less than a half-mile – from a standing stop. Like the body, the engine is stock except for cylinder sleeves. Sleeved cylinders allow this huge 8.4-liter V10 engine to withstand the added rigor of a pair of turbochargers (Calvo Motorsports kit). Horsepower to the rear wheels is dyno-documented at 1,750. Today this nasty serpent will be taking on the closed course at Read More

The GT-R That Jack Built

May 11th, 2018

Running in the fine air that permeates Colorado Springs, Colorado, an outstanding field of performance cars has gathered to assault a half-mile patch of abandoned airstrip. Among them is this no-nonsense Nissan GT-R. The Pike’s Peak Airstrip Attack is among the most prestigious top-speed events in the world.   This black beauty is powered by a 4.1-liter stroker motor (aluminum connecting rods) with an Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) kit on it (twin Precision 6466 turbochargers). At 37 psi, the car maxed a 1,500hp dyno out. Jack’s Transmissions performed the build on the entire car and they are on-hand today to Read More

Tesla Mom Car is Track Monster

May 2nd, 2018

Careful that you don’t get spanked by a soccer mom in the quietest compact SUV (with gull-wing doors) that you could ever imagine. The Tesla X is now prowling the streets and it can be challenging to say the least. With all-wheel drive and total electric power, this little grocery-getter comes out of the hole like a bullet. Today, it will be taking on the world in closed track contests that include roll and dig races. Spoiler alert: This thing is deadly from the dig! First up is a motorcycle. It is the legendary 2012 Suzuki Hayabusa with full bolt-ons. Read More

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

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.
