Gator Crossing Cash Days with Limpy on the Light

March 18th, 2024

It’s drag racing time in the Sunshine State, and we have Limpy on the Light. That means Cash Days and some head-to-head digs from the deepest, darkest remotes of swamp country. Get ready for sand in your craw and race fuel in your nostrils as the 1320 crew checks out Gator Crossing Cash Days. The first competitor we run into is Possum. I call him that because of the way he talks about his ride. “Oh, it does alright” he says about his twin turbo LS swapped Fox Body Mustang. This car looks to do a bit more than alright. Read More

Pontiac G8 GXP with Nitrous vs. the Streets

February 1st, 2024

Here we have a rather docile looking Pontiac G8 taking on a Camaro SS, a Mustang GT, a C8 Corvette and an Infiniti Q50. Don’t get it twisted – these cars look like grocery getters, but they are all modified for the purpose of racing on the streets (of Mexico). Have a look. The rear-wheel drive Pontiac G8 GXP is loaded with a naturally aspirated 6.2-liter LS3 V8. The block and heads are aluminum, and the transmission is a 6-speed manual. In stock condition, the G8 could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.7-seconds and turn the standing quarter-mile Read More

Sick Week – Day Zero Test and Tune

January 29th, 2024

It’s that time of year again. Sick Week 2024 is upon us and it’s happening in the Sunshine State. The best No Prep cars (trucks, etc.) are gathered in Florida to begin a series of drag racing events tied together by a 1,000-mile cruise. Sick Week is a grueling challenge. It’s hard on the machinery and brutal in the knuckles, but lifelong friendships will be formed. Let’s go to the track for some last minute test runs. Right out of the gate, there’s an ‘80s Pontiac Le Mans Wagon doing burnouts. This grocery getter has a massive 540 cubic-inch big Read More

Car and Driver 0-150-0 Speed Test 2023

November 29th, 2023

In what has become the gold standard for performance in production vehicles, Car and Driver Magazine gathered some of the most capable cars – and SUVs – for a test of acceleration and braking prowess. Have a look at the vehicles in this contest and let us know what other vehicles should have been included. Beginning at the 8:44 mark, we find the Toyota GR Supra 3.0. Equipped with a twin turbocharged inline 3.0-liter 6-cylinder engine, the GR Supra can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6-seconds and meander through the quarter-mile in 12.4-seconds @ 114 mph. In this Read More

K-Swapped AWD Ford Escort Crucifies Nissan GT-R – Drag Racing

November 17th, 2023

Looking similar to a pink pig, this Honda K-swapped Ford Escort is into killing the competition. Prior to posting any runs at Street Car Takeover Charlotte, this car had run a best of 10.2-seconds @ 141 mph in the quarter-mile. Without a roll cage and uncertain about future passes, the car is running in limbo somewhere between exhibition and test and tune when he puts up a 10.03 @ 140 mph and a 10.05 @ 140 mph. The car owner astutely climbs into the 10-0 bracket for the remainder of the event. This Ford rides on an all-wheel drivetrain cobbled Read More

Turbo AWD Acura Integra vs. Porsche 918 Spyder – Drag Race

November 7th, 2023

This race represents auto enthusiasts from both ends of the economic spectrum. The Porsche comes in with a price tag of about $1.5-million. On the other hand, the Acura is custom built from salvage parts and aftermarket performance goodies. Safe to say, it’s worth far less than the 918. The real question is, can the modified Acura keep up with the stock Porsche on the dragstrip? The all-wheel drive 918 Spyder features a mid-mounted naturally aspirated 4.6-liter V8 engine and a pair of electric motors. All combined, the Spyder can generate 887hp and 944 lb.-ft. of torque. The Porsche also Read More

Three Way Drag Race – Porsche 911 vs. 700hp MK4 Supra vs. Time Attack RX-7

October 30th, 2023

This clip delivers a rare three-way drag race between a trio of capable imports. Let’s have a gander at the hardware. The MK4 Toyota Supra has been upgraded from a twin turbo system to a large single turbo setup. The 3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder engine has been built with premium internals. Carbon-fiber components are plentiful in the engine bay which is loaded with aftermarket bolt-ons like an oversize throttle body and a cold air intake. The factory transmission was ditched for an 8-speed BMW gearbox. Maximum output is estimated to be 700hp at a weight of 3,306-pounds. The Time Attack 1983 Read More

Midwest Street Racing – Kong Ported Trackhawk, Blown Mini Cooper and Big Turbo MK4 Supra

October 27th, 2023

Tonight, we are hitting the streets for some high-spirited roll racing from the Midwest. These street racers are serious about their horsepower in this part of the country. There are some unique builds on hand, and this should be an interesting event. The first race of the evening will involve a MK4 Toyota Supra with an inline 3.0-liter 6-cylinder and a massive 7685 turbocharger. The transmission is a GM TH400 automatic. The Supra topped out at 1,022whp on the dyno. In the other lane is an EVO 9 with unknown mods. He sounds pretty fast. When the race finally happens, Read More

Twin Turbo V8 Camaro vs. Big Turbo AWD Honda Civic – Drag Racing

September 21st, 2023

Here we have an import versus domestic throwdown on a closed course. The Hoonigan group have put together this turbocharged matchup and it is off the chain. Let’s have a look at the machinery. In the left lane is the 1993 Honda Civic EG. Far removed from a docile sub-compact hatchback, this asphalt alligator features an all-wheel drivetrain with a 5-speed manual transmission. Scavenged from various Honda models, the all-wheel drive setup gives this car a distinct advantage when grip is difficult to find. The engine is a 1.8-liter inline four-cylinder Acura with a big turbo. He’s claiming 900hp but Read More

This clip takes us out of the lower forty-eight and into the beautiful Alaskan landscape. The 1320 crew are on hand to give us a rundown of all the action – as well as an inside look at some of the more interesting builds. Between the amazing scenery and the insane No Prep drag racing action, you don’t want to miss this one. The first vehicle we look at is a 1970 Ford F100 (shortbed) pickup. An all-out race truck, this beast has a built 532 cubic-inch Ford big block motor with a pair of 75-millimeter turbochargers. The owner/operator is Read More
