Corvette Z06 with Rear Mount Turbo

June 24th, 2016

This is another turbocharged Z06 Corvette – with a unique twist. Instead of the run-of-the-mill front mounted, flow-through turbo, this ‘Vette has the turbo mounted in the rear. This design helps to remove some heat from the engine compartment. The turbocharger is connected to the exhaust near the outlets and an air-to-water intercooler is mounted in the trunk, almost directly above the turbocharger. A second heat-exchanger is located in front of the radiator. This car is still in the developmental stages and already running in the 9-second range. With a few more events under their belt, this team figures to Read More

No Prep Gangster – Fox Body Mustang

June 22nd, 2016

You have probably heard of Boosted Solutions (out of Chestertown, Indiana). They campaign The Fugitive. It is a 3,500hp Chevy powered Mustang that kills at major No Prep events. This video brings us the newest project that the guys at Boosted Solutions are campaigning in the Gangster Class at King of the Streets in Chicago. No Prep is the hottest ticket in drag racing right now. This Fox Body Mustang is equipped with a 118-millimeter turbocharger. It don’t come out of the hole as fast as some but it manages to get down the 1320 in good time – good Read More

240 MPH Half-Mile World Record

June 20th, 2016

The world record for top speed in the standing half-mile has fallen. The driver who shattered the 238.6 mph mark (set last year by K.C. Howeth in Texas) Saturday is no rookie. Gidi Chamdi is the man-of-the-hour. He once held the record at 234 mph and I’ll give you odds that he won’t let his new “high-water” mark stand very long. Gidi’s car is a Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera. It has a built 5.2-liter V10 engine and an Underground Racing X twin turbo package. The setup is good for more than 2,300hp. Despite the massive power, this Lambo remains very streetable Read More

205 MPH 1.4 Mile Huracan

June 14th, 2016

I love these ride-along videos. This is one such video in which an exquisite Lamborghini Huracan takes on a Ferrari 488GTB and posts a top speed of 205 mph in the 1.4 mile Hypermax IV event. This clip comes to us from the historic Bruntingthorpe Proving Grounds in the United Kingdom and features one of the most iconic supercars of the modern era. The “affordable” Huracan sells for around $200K and is equipped with a (mid-mounted) high-revving 5.2-liter V10 engine. It is offered in all-wheel (602hp) and rear-wheel (571hp) drive configurations. It has a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission (no manual offered Read More

Monster 800HP No Prep Trans Am

June 13th, 2016

What shade of orange paint is that? It’s orange-you-jealous of that 7-year old paint job. Seriously, it’s Tangerine from House of Kolor and it (like most of their shades) is stunning and durable. So, it looks good but it ain’t just how you look – it’s what you got under the hood. Well, this orange F-Body has been known to blaze through the 1/8-mile in the mid-5s, with the front wheels in the air nearly halfway down the track. Under the hood, it has an L33 Chevy 5.3-liter engine and an S480 turbocharger with a TH400 automatic transmission behind that. Read More

3000HP Second-Gen Camaro Street Car

June 9th, 2016

First of all, this Camaro is a street car. It is an all steel car (prepared by BrandoSpeed) with all of the factory glass intact. Despite weighing in at more than 3,500-pounds, this car whipped every other car in its class – at the Outlaw Chaos Event in Cedar Falls, Iowa – to take home the cash. A massive 540-cubic-inch ProLine racing engine and a pair of turbochargers get this fantastic looking muscle car down the 1/8-mile post-haste. This is a no prep event but the best 1/8-mile ET for this Mustang killer is 4.38-seconds. Take a gander for yourself; Read More

TT LSX Powered Superlite Kit Car

June 7th, 2016

Check out this amazing looking Fireball Red Superlite kit car. This full kit custom ride is well put together with all the go-fast goodies but don’t expect to hear a high-pitched scream upon acceleration because at the heart of this beast there is an all-American Chevrolet small block (it’s a 6.2-liter – with a pair of massive turbochargers). This is a very bad girl! She is running consistent 170+ mph times (through the 1/2-mile) and turning everyone’s head at WannaGoFast7 in South Georgia. The boost is only tuned to 7 psi, so be on the lookout for this fireball at Read More

Nightmare Nova Street Blitz

June 6th, 2016

This is Birka Cup drag racing action, directly from Sweden. The Nightmare Chevy Nova is one of the baddest naturally aspirated cars on the planet. It wrings 880hp from a 540-cubic-inch Chevrolet big block and whips the stew out of twin turbocharged and nitrous equipped cars. To add insult to injury; the Nightmare Nova is running on pump gas. This heavy ’66 Nova is running big tires and terrorizing the streets of Stockholm – taking no prisoners. This clip begins with the nightmare taking on a nitrous injected Malibu. The Malibu gets left in the lurch. Next, a turbocharged LSX Read More

Big Block Cutlass Wins No Prep Event

May 31st, 2016

It’s normal to see these big block nitrous monsters show up at no prep events and struggle to get traction. They spin and slide; darting from lane to lane in a futile effort to make the car hook-up. Well, this rear-wheel drive G-Body not only gets a fair amount of traction, it manages to carry the front wheels through the first half of the 1320 and remain in the correct lane. Running in the Big Tire Class, this Cutlass is powered by a 632-cubic inch big block engine with a 250-shot of nitrous and a methanol injection (to keep intake Read More

1500HP Gen V Viper

May 25th, 2016

This is the world’s fastest Gen V Dodge Viper. It showed up at Heaven’s Landing Airstrip in Clayton, Georgia for the WannaGoFast7 event. Not only did this beautiful Gen V Viper bust the 200 mph barrier; it did so using 19-inch tires. This means that two world records were set in this video: Best top speed (200.5 mph) in the half-mile by a Gen V Viper and best top speed by a car with 19-inch tires in the half-mile. That’s a pretty good weekend’s work. This car has a built 8.4-liter V10 engine with a twin turbocharger setup. The combination Read More
