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

Spoolio – 8-Second TT Camaro

November 23rd, 2017

This video treats us to a long weekend of speed from Arizona. Get ready for some high flying (almost) dyno action, electrifying quarter-mile passes, and a ride along for some bone jarring half-mile hits. Our feature ride for this well produced flick is a Gen IV Chevrolet Camaro Z28. It has been upgraded with a built 376 cubic-inch LS3 engine block and a set of LSA cylinder heads. Engine performance is amplified with a Huron twin turbocharger kit. Power is dyno certified at 1,050hp (21 psi of boost) on this day and the twin turbo V8 sounds amazing. The action Read More

Ball of Smoke – 850WHP 13B RX7

November 4th, 2017

The Mazda RX7 featured in this video brings to mind an old saying. It says that it ain’t the size of the dog in the fight – it’s the size of the fight in the dog. The displacement of the engine (76-millimeter) that propels this car down the 1320 (in under eight-seconds), is actually smaller than its turbocharger (88-millimeter). Nevertheless, the combination of the 1.3-liter semi peripheral rotary engine and a single Precision turbocharger produced 850whp during dyno testing. That is good enough to post consistent 7-second elapsed times in the 175 mph range (quarter-mile). Most Mazdas at the drag Read More

McLaren 720S Dyno Results and Graphs

October 31st, 2017

Many have been wondering how the McLaren 720S can be so fast running 9.9 in the 1/4 mile with just 710 horsepower as per McLaren’s specifications for it’s latest supercar. We take a trip with the McLaren 720S over to a dyno to see just how much horsepower and torque the amazingly fast supercar makes from it’s 4.0L twin turbocharged V8. Since different dynos can report different numbers, we also dyno a McLaren MP4-12C to compare power numbers between the two cars.
