Meet Maria – The Perfect Car Girl

September 29th, 2016

Are you feeling a little misunderstood? Chances are that you just need to meet Maria (or find a mate like her). If you are a car guy (or girl) – and if you’re reading this you probably are – your most meaningful relationships are likely going to be with other car people. Since it’s a pretty safe bet that car guys are easier to find than car girls, Maria is a rare commodity indeed. Check out the video; you’ll be amazed at Maria’s knowledge of cars and racing (and the car is quite impressive as well). Speaking of which: The Read More

September 28th, 2016

So, ever wonder what $187,400 will buy you? One thing is a lightweight, high-powered, British sports car; more specifically, the 2016 McLaren 570S. If you would like to know what it’s made of, this video takes us back to Mazda’a Laguna Seca Raceway for another round of the 2016 Best Driver’s Car from Motor Trend and Mother’s.

New Half-Mile World Record

September 23rd, 2016

Underground Racing (UR) has scored again with their earth shaking X-Package. UR has taken the lead in developing turbocharged performance machines and, if this past weekend’s festivities are any indication, they aren’t planning on relinquishing their position any time soon. The backdrop is a closed airstrip during the ShiftS3ctor event in McMinnville, Oregon. All of the top players are on hand for this event, as you might expect, and world records are being broken all weekend. At the end of the event, Richard Fowler owned the new World Record in the 1/2-mile at 247.25 mph – that’s 7 mph faster Read More

Import Street Shootout – Roll and Dig

September 14th, 2016

The increasing availability of turbochargers to the sport of street racing has forever changed the face of what is arguably the most popular motorized sport in America. Despite competitors being forced to take their high performance dramas south of the border (for legal reasons), street racers continue to blow their top when it comes to modifying their machines for maximum performance and optimum horsepower. This clip runs the gambit from high-dollar exotic sports cars to good old domestic muscle. It opens up with a majestic Porsche 911 Turbo S, with an upgraded turbocharger, a high performance intake manifold, high performance Read More

Porsche vs. Lamborghini – Rolling Airstrip Attack

September 14th, 2016

It just don’t get any better than this! Here is a video that captures some of the baddest exotic supercars on the planet; locked in on the finish line in a battle of outright acceleration to top speed. If you love ultra expensive performance autos, then the cockpit view (from the front seat of a Porsche 991 Turbo S Mk II) will have you white-knuckling the proverbial dash all the way to the end and the setting for the airstrip is absolutely pristine. So, what is left to vex my troubled brow? How about a third pass – because one-and-one Read More

1200HP R34 Skyline GT-R

September 10th, 2016

I think I’ll call this color Emerald Chrome. It’s absolutely stunning on this radically modified Nissan R35 Skyline GT-R, but never mind the aesthetics; this coupe is built to tame the track. When the team at Motive DVD (from the United Kingdom, I presume) was asked to build this monster, they set out with a purpose; to dominate the street car class at Powercruise events around the globe. While Motive stopped short of revealing all their design secrets, they did cover the basics and treat us to a grand video ride-along. To make this car competitive and unique, these Brits Read More

Canadian Street Racing – Toronto Roll and Dig

September 9th, 2016

So, this is how they do it in the Great White North, eh? It seems like they really know how to get to it when it comes to high caliber street racing. All the heavy hitters showed up in Toronto – and on short notice, too. There is the usual onslaught of Camaros and Corvettes but there are also a couple of unusual rides, including an LS powered RX-7, a Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG, and a BMW S1000 RR motorcycle (modified). The RX-7 is running a 5.3-liter Chevy small block LS motor with a camshaft upgrade, a Borg Warner S480 turbocharger Read More

Porsche vs Ferrari vs McLaren – Drag Race to 200 MPH

September 7th, 2016

This clip brings us a drag race (to 200 mph) between a Porsche 918 Spyder, a Ferrari LaFerrari, and a McLaren P1. It is skillfully produced with pre-race car setup included. The sound of these three automotive masterpieces posturing at the starting line is enough to make your ears want to dance. The 918 manages to produce 874hp and 944 lb-ft. of torque and it’s riding on Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. All that power comes from a 4.6-liter internal combustion V8 engine and a trio of lithium ion battery powered electric motors. The LaFerrari is equipped with a Read More

Chi-Town Heat – Roll Racing on the Street

September 6th, 2016

If there is one thing that they can do in Chi-town, it’s throw-down on the streets. Naturally, when we got a chance to check out what kind of roll racing Chicago (Mexico) has to offer; we loaded up our wagons and hit the dusty trail. To say the least, we were not disappointed. On hand was a 2016 BMW X5 M (yes, an SUV) powered by a 4.4-liter twin turbocharged V8 with aftermarket bolt-ons and a software upgrade. It’s good for about 800whp. There’s a 2003 Porsche 911 Turbo that has a modified intercooler, exhaust headers, and high performance mufflers. Read More

Tin Can Mitsubishi Evo – Stock ECM World Record

September 3rd, 2016

Who knew that there was an event focused exclusively on Diamond Star Motors (DSM) held annually at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio? Seems like someone should have, since the DSM Shootout has been going on for the last 24-years. This event grows bigger and bigger with each passing year. This is due in large part to the popularity of the Mitsubishi Evolution. Despite the Evo coming from the factory with a 2.2-liter four-cylinder engine, this car is easily modified. Many top-shelf aftermarket manufacturers are producing high performance parts for these cars that are practical, comfortable, and have the potential Read More
