Procharged Ford GT – Roll Racing and Dyno

September 20th, 2016

When you think about Minnesota and Ford, images of furrowed ground and lush crops may come to mind but this “Star of the North” based Ford can run circles around anyone’s tractor. This is no trailer queen either; the owner drive it all over the U.S. – stopping only long enough to do a little tuning before taking on the local 1/4, 1/2, or 1-mile track. This clip catches owner and operator (Dan) at Street Car Takeover in St Louis, Missouri, after 500-miles of abusive road driving (part of a 7,000-mile week). As you are aware, the Ford GT is Read More

Giant Killer – 670HP Turbo K20 Honda Civic

August 4th, 2016

This little import doesn’t make a lot of noise but it does carry a big stick. Never mind that this Honda looks like it’s missing a few panels, it is wreaking havoc on the streets (of Mexico I’m certain), and taking no prisoners. Here is a dyno test and some street (roll) racing action that will have you wondering just how high this four-banger can rev. The tiny Civic first tangles with a Ferrari 458 and make him look foolish. Next, he jumps on a turbocharged S2000 and a modified GT-R and puts both their lights out, respectfully. Then he Read More

White Lightning – 1126 HP Toyota MR2

July 15th, 2016

This is one hoss of a mid engine powered Toyota MR2. It has a 2.0-liter engine with some mild piston, rod, cylinder head, and camshaft upgrades; with a Precision 7285 turbo stuffing air down the neck. This is a great looking little car that can tear it up on the drag strip and still be driven every day. This video shows some test runs on the street, along with a dyno test. This bad boy has one of the most unique shifters anywhere. It’s cherry with a long pattern and a short throw. NOTE: We neither condone nor encourage racing Read More

1291HP Street Sleeper Sedan – Dyno and Test Drive

June 29th, 2016

While this sedan doesn’t exactly look like your typical grocery-getter, you don’t see many 1,200+hp rides with four-doors and a baby seat in the back. Billed (by AG Motosports) as the Mitsubishi Evolution with the most horsepower on this planet, this thing hit 1,291whp and 767-lb.-ft. of torque on the dyno and then hit the streets for some test-abuse. This ‘Mr. Biscuit’ is well heeled with a built 2.0-liter – and I mean built – with GRP aluminum connecting rods and an AG Competition cylinder head with Ferrea valves, Supertech valve springs, and a set of AG racing spec camshafts.

Tesla Model X P90D is more powerful than the Model S P90D

June 20th, 2016

When we first tested the new Model X P90D with Ludicrous mode at the drag strip running an amazing 11.6 @ 116 MPH at Palm Beach International Raceway we were quite surprised how quick and fast it was compared with the Model S P90D Ludicrous running 11.3 @ 116 MPH in a direct heads up race. Given the extra 600+ pounds the Model X has to carry around over the Model S combined with Tesla’s own spec that both have the same motors, same battery and make the same power (532 HP motor power), the numbers just didn’t add up.  While Read More

3200HP Fox Body Mustang

May 14th, 2016

Some folks say that we do things a little different in the Deep South and I reckon that is true for the most part. However, when it comes to Lights Out 7 events at the South Georgia Motorsports Park, ‘different’ just might mean some of the baddest cars on the planet. Here’s an example: Mustang Mike is campaigning a beautiful Fox Body Mustang with a massive 670-cubic-inch LS7 billet engine and a pair (yes, I said a pair) of ProCharger F1X superchargers making 43-pounds of boost at 7,000 RPM. This car has one of the most unique supercharger setups that Read More

Ferrari 488 GTB Dyno Test

May 11th, 2016

Sure, they look and sound impressive, but did you ever wonder what kind of numbers a high-performance supercar would put up on the dyno? Lamborghini, McLaren, Bugatti, or Ferrari; they all draw our attention and spark our imagination but few of us can dream of owning one. Nevertheless, my curiosity is aroused whenever I consider interjecting such an automobile into a street racing scenario. Anyways, check out the dyno test. This is a stock Ferrari 488 GTB with a 3.9-liter V8 with a dual-clutch 7-speed automated manual transmission. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3-seconds flat and Read More

Porsche Carrera 911 991.2 Dyno Comparison – The Power of the Turbo

April 2nd, 2016

Porsche’s latest line up of 2017 model year 911 Carreras have gone from naturally aspirated engines to forced induction adding a set of turbochargers to their boxer 6 cylinder engine.  So what does that mean for power and torque?  A lot of it with big increases over the previous non-turbo engines. Cobb Tuning recently put a brand new 2017 Carrera S on their dyno to see just what was happening and the new engine delivered making 380HP and 373 ft-lbs of torque to the wheels on their DynoJet Dyno.  They also did a direct comparison of a Carrera with the previous non-turbo motor Read More

930HP Shop Truck Dyno and Drag

March 16th, 2016

The crew at Ultra Blue Traction Compound has put together a shop truck that has been letting them down as of late. First, there was the ‘incident’ at the dyno. It seems that the guys were expecting to put up a four-digit number and they could only irk out 930hp. That’s still pretty impressive considering that we’re talking about a Chevrolet Silverado. Next, they rolled into Street Car Takeover Phoenix looking to put down a few 9-second passes and the best they could manage was a 10.07-second pass @ 134 mph. Look for bigger and better things from this crew Read More

900HP General Lee Viper T/A Rocks Street Car Takeover

February 29th, 2016

Roll racing, dig racing, dyno testing – heck there’s even an inadvertent lane change in this clip captured during the Street Car Takeover Event in Dallas, Texas. Calvo Motorsports (Austin, Texas) is tearing up the Lone Star State with its rendition of the General Lee (Dukes of Hazard) except their version has replaced the confederate battle flag with a Texas State flag. The Generation V Snake has been modified with a Powerhouse Racing turbo setup that includes a pair of Garret 3794 turbochargers and a CM MoTec M150 ECU. This car has posted a 1/4-mile ET of 9.2 @ 150.6 Read More
