Twin Turbo V8 Powered Honda Civic

October 29th, 2015

After four-years Jeff Lutz Jr. finally got to campaign his CRAZY 1989 Honda Civic during Drag Week 2015. This highly modified import has garnered some degree of internet fame during the last few years. Weighing only 2,300-pounds, this car can already sprint through the 1320 in the 7-second range and we expect some really special things once Jeff gets the boost tuned in. No more v-tec for this Civic. A tube chassis supports a massive 434-cubic-inch-diameter V8 Vinson Race engine with a pair of Precision 76-millimeter turbos (good for 1,000hp!).

If you haven’t seen this sliver, Hurst edition, 1982 Oldsmobile Cutlass (affectionately dubbed “The Cutty”) blistering the 1/4-mile over the past six-months, then you must have your head under a rock. After a mishap last season that took him out of the running in the Street Outlaws championship and a revamp that saw the car go from nitrous to a turbocharger, Cutty owner/operator Andrade revealed (at the beginning of the 2015 season) that his Olds is making around 1,400hp and 1,190 lb.-ft. of torque. Under the hood, a Texas Speed built (LS based) 408-cubic inch engine with Wiseco internals and Read More

October 19th, 2015

In the game of 9-ball, if you want a cue ball to spin fast, reach the brink of chaos, and yield lots of return, then you put a little “English” on it. In half-mile racing, on a closed airstrip, if you want a Mitsubishi Evolution to run like a bat out of Hades, then you better put a little English on it, as well. English Racing that is, where real boost doesn’t start until 30 psi. This video comes to you from the ShiftS3ctor Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack 2015.
