Stock Porsche 911 GT2 RS – 10-Second Quarter-Mile

October 18th, 2018

Showcased in this brief video is the amazing new Porsche 911 GT2 RS. It is the end-all when it comes to 911 performance as the most capable ever produced. Exciting to me is not a 10-second factory Porsche but the endless modification possibilities that we may see (especially from EKanoo Racing) in the months and years to come. With a sticker price (new) of nearly $300K, the GT2 RS is truly one of the most sophisticated production cars ever made. It is powered by a 3.8-liter twin turbocharged 6-cylinder boxer engine. The engine is situated in the rear of the Read More

Fun Down Under – 6-Second Mazda RX-3

October 16th, 2018

This thing is an angry beast! These Aussies yanked the rotary motor out of a Mazda RX-3 and stuck in an LS package. Focused around a 7.0-liter mill (alloy connecting rods and All Pro aluminum cylinder heads), this twin turbocharged (Turbosmart) setup is capable of turning consistent 7-second elapsed times. Today, the crew will attempt to dip into the sixes. Castle Hill Performance does the heavy lifting on this tiny monster and it is tuned by SCF Race Cars. Fresh off the trailer, the RX-3 runs a (personal best) 6.95-seconds @ 201 mph! In a solo run, everything went absolutely Read More

Turbo Trans Am vs. ProCharged Corvette – Street Hits

October 9th, 2018

By: Ricardo Perez This clip unfolds south if the border where representatives from the BIG 3 (GM, Ford, Dodge) are throwing down with heavily modified machines in some roll racing hits. There are also a few imports and some bikes to pretty things up a bit. It all begins with a 60 mph-roll between a 1,200hp Nissan GT-R (SPD 1400 turbo kit) and a twin turbo Cadillac CTS-V. After the lineup; the Nissan lets him have it. The Nissan rolls out against a 1,000hp (nitrous) Dodge Challenger Hellcat. Once again, the GT-R jumps out and gaps the Mopar FTW! Next, the Read More

October 3rd, 2018

Greetings drag racing fans and fellow speed freaks from every sport. Please allow me to introduce Mark and his 1,000hp Ford Mustang. Yes, it’s a FoxBody and, not only is it one of the fastest street cars in the country, it’s also one of the most amazing – from an aesthetic point of view. No LS motor here; not even a modular. Under the hood is a 5.8-liter (351W) small block Ford with a set of hi-rise cylinder heads that have been ported and polished to the point that you can almost see into the combustion chamber.

September 30th, 2018

by: Adam Yacoby Greetings fellow drag racing aficionados from both street and strip. This clip is for all the true car lovers out there. If you believe that an automobile can also be a work of art; you will truly appreciate this video. Timeless Kustoms (Camarillo, CA) is known for building beautifully, custom-crafted, hand-made, high-performance vehicles from the ground up. Before the ZR1 was officially introduced to consumers in 2009, Jason at TK managed to convince GM to pass him an LS9 engine slated for use in one of the first 100 ZR1 units. Jason took the supercharged 6.2-liter mill Read More

10-Second Classic GMC Pickup Diesel

September 30th, 2018

by: Ricardo Perez It’s Rocky Mountain Race Week. All the elite street and strip racers are on-hand for this week-long test of man and machine. Despite all the unique rides at this event, no one is expecting a ‘70s GMC pickup (short bed) to be posting 10-second quarter-mile passes in the 140 mph range. They sure as heck ain’t expecting to see it belching coal over the roof. Running a built LBZ (2006/2007) Duramax diesel 6.6-liter, with a compound turbo setup, this classic GMC is posting consistent 10s and dipping into the 9s on occasion. The combination is good for 1,189hp Read More

Nitrous Corvette Z06 vs. Dodge Demon Challenger

September 30th, 2018

by: Adam Yacoby There is a battle brewing on the East Coast. Seems that a car called the Demon is building quite a reputation and Corvette owners in Lobster Land don’t like it even a little bit. Word is that some of these Demons are going to be competing at Cecil County Dragway. Maybe – just maybe – some of these ‘Vette owners will show up, as well. Let’s have a look. Sure enough, there’s a pretty blue Chevy Corvette now. The C6 Z06 is equipped with a stock bottom end LS7 (7.0-liter V8). On top are a set of Read More
