Lightweight Tesla Tames the Street

July 21st, 2017

It has taken many years for me to realize that, when it comes to street (and No-Prep) racing, consistency is the key. Right now, there is not a mass produced vehicle that brings a better balance of power and consistency than the all-electric Tesla P100D. First of all; the words lightweight and Tesla may be a misrepresentation. You see, the P100D weighs in at a skosh less than 2.5-tons in factory trim. Our feature car has undergone a certain degree of weight reduction but still tips the scales at a rotund 4,500-pounds. The lithium-ion powered motors on each end of Read More

Tesla Model S P100D vs 1,000HP Toyota Supra Drag and Roll Races

July 10th, 2017

Watch one of the most advanced and quickest cars on the road, the Tesla Model S P100D Ludicrous take on an old school import from Japan with 1,000 HP, a single turbo Toyota Supra.    

950HP AC Cobra – Half-Mile

July 10th, 2017

This car would make Carroll Shelby proud! While purists may complain that it isn’t a factory car – no one can argue that it embodies the racing spirit promoted by the legendary racer and founder of Shelby America. Produced as a (2,400-pound) kit car by Backdraft Racing, this AC Cobra replica is packing a very modern punch. Under the black metal flake hood beats the heart of an all-aluminum modular Coyote racing engine. A Whipple supercharger and a 250-shot nitrous kit provide an extra degree of get-up-and-go. Traction is certainly a problem but breaking loose between gears is a problem 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

Classic Camaro Packs Giant TT Punch

April 25th, 2017

The only thing better than a great looking classic Chevrolet Camaro is a great looking classic Camaro that is capable of running some consistent low E.T.s in the 1/8-mile. This car fills that bill. Seriously, this car hooks up as proficiently and consistently as any car I have ever seen – straight out of the hole and right down the track like it’s on a rail. It is truly a credit to the tuner and the entire crew. The only complaints we heard were from little kids. It seems that every time the Camaro made a pass, all the air Read More

Evo X World Record Quarter-Mile

April 22nd, 2017

Hello drag racing fans and speed aficionados of every variety. Join me in congratulating Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) and English Racing as they (once again) shatter the world record 1/4-mile with a pass of 8.48-seconds @ 164.1 mph. The crew had the little sedan running in the 8.5-second range the entire event (TX2K17) and finally hit the right spot for a blow out pass in the latter stages. It seemed like Lucas English was pulling his hair out at the laptop trying to find the perfect tune. Lucas is no stranger to world records and he came through in the clutch. Read More

Taking it to the Streets – TX2K17

March 22nd, 2017

So, this is what happens when a few thousand of the baddest street cars on the planet show up for the premier street racing event in the U.S. and – you guessed it – take it to the streets! There is something in this video for everyone. There are small cars, big cars, coupes and sedans, imports (from every corner of the globe) and domestics, naturally aspirated cars, turbocharged cars, blown cars, nitrous injected cars – there are even electric cars, SUVs, and pickups. If you are into roll racing on the street, this clip is for you. This production Read More

Tesla Model S P100D Ludicrous Plus Testing on a Mustang Dyno

February 20th, 2017

It’s been about 2 years since we dyno tested our Tesla Model S P85D so we figured it was time to head back to see Jack at HPLogic to see how much power our new Model S P100D with Ludicrous Plus is making. The first few tests were coming in pretty low due to the car pulling back power while throwing up some error codes.  The Tesla’s sensors were detecting that the car was not actually moving while the wheels were spinning, causing the car to stop accelerating on the dyno.  The first result was around 450 ft lbs of torque.

Cash Money Street Racing – Camaro ZL1 vs. Tesla P100DL+

January 30th, 2017

This video uses multiple GoPro angles to showcase the astonishing Tesla P100DL+ (signifying a P100D in Ludicrous Plus mode). The action begins with unloading the P100D from a roll back wrecker for a contest of speed called a dig race. Believe it or not, one of the baddest Chevrolets in production is asking for a head start. Even more surprising – he gets it. The Tesla is spotting him the break plus one car length because, despite packing a 650hp supercharged 6.2-liter engine with an upper pulley upgrade, the Camaro is the dramatic underdog. That means that the Chevy will Read More

Tesla P90D Street Racing – Roll and Dig Domination

November 30th, 2016

A few years ago, I would never have dreamed that the terms “electric car” and “street racing” would be used in the same sentence. These days, the Porsche 918 is the king of the hill when it comes to hybrid cars (and cars in general, I guess) but when you talk about full on EV power, the name Tesla seems to remain at the forefront. We’ve all grown accustomed to seeing Tesla P90D sedans, dragging the four-wheeled competition in Ludicrous mode, particularly in dig races. Now, with improved top-end capability, this driver is ready to take on modified street bikes Read More
