Birkacup Street Elimination Tournament

August 19th, 2016

The Birkacup street eliminator has got to be the greatest single invention of the Swedish people. How awesome would it be to have a national street racing tournament, where the baddest cars in the land come to compete in heads-up single elimination dig racing? Of course, in the U.S., it would need to take place south of the border. Get this: These guys block off a section of the interstate and get down! Road rage must be a lot different in the city of Stockholm than it is in the States. I don’t know how things work in your town Read More

East Coast Street Racing – Twelve Cars Race for $1200

August 16th, 2016

That’s right baby! This is an East Coast (of Mexico – of course) style, single elimination tournament with twelve drivers contributing $100 each – and the final round winner is driving away with all the cash. While $1200 may not seem like a bunch of money to you; there are some people (myself included) that consider that a pretty good night’s fun (it ain’t work). One of the best things about having a cash-pool is that the competitors have to exit their vehicles and come together for a brief period. This usually results in a lot of trash talking and Read More

Honda Civic Traps 189 MPH at Pikes Peak

August 11th, 2016

The competitors are breaking the 200 mph barrier (on a regular basis) during this week’s 2016 Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack but who expects to see a Honda Civic that can turn 189 mph trap speeds?  The truth is that this is no ordinary Civic – but it is ninety-nine-percent Honda. Start with a run-of-the-mill, 2,300-pound hatchback Honda Civic. Now, snatch that four-cylinder mill out of there and replace it with a ultra smooth 3.5-liter V6 engine from a front wheel drive Honda Odyssey van. Before cramming it back under the hood, install a set of high-performance cylinder heads and camshafts Read More

759HP Lamborghini Centenario Hits the Street

August 10th, 2016

Marking what would be the 100th birthday of founder Ferruccio Lamborghini, the Italian automaker has unveiled the latest in a long line of elite sports cars. It is never likely to see mass production and may even be a one-off proposition. Nevertheless, this 2017 Lamborghini Centenario (pronounced chin-ten-ario) slithered out of its storage bay and through the front gate of an Italian manufacturing facility, just in time for photographers to catch the action. Then it accelerated away and down the street. Whoa! What an exhaust note and this thing looks magnificent! For obvious aesthetic reasons (check out the video) and Read More

Teenage Bugatti Driver Tops 200MPH

August 9th, 2016

Here is a young man with a bright future ahead of him. Despite his tender young age (only 13-years), this lad astonished experts, at the ShiftS3ctor – Revolution.com Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack 2016, with his knowledge of extremely expensive automobiles and his ability to drive them very fast while maintaining his cool. Although Steven is not yet old enough to get a driver’s license, this is his second year competing in this event. This year the family brought out a bevy of exotic beauties, including a Porsche 918, a McLaren 650S, and a Bugatti Veyron. That’s nearly $2.5-million worth of Read More

Underground Lamborghini Street Clash

August 8th, 2016

Now this is my idea of a perfect Sunday drive (until the end). The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and I’m behind the wheel of a beautiful, skillfully modified, elite level street racer. To make this relaxing ride even more enjoyable, two like-minded individuals roll up in their tricked out supercars. Since we’re already in Mexico (where street racing is perfectly legal), my acquaintances and I decide to “blow the soot” out of our machines and engage in a little friendly competition – you bet there’s gonna to be a race! Roll racing is the order of the day and Read More

Giant Killer – 670HP Turbo K20 Honda Civic

August 4th, 2016

This little import doesn’t make a lot of noise but it does carry a big stick. Never mind that this Honda looks like it’s missing a few panels, it is wreaking havoc on the streets (of Mexico I’m certain), and taking no prisoners. Here is a dyno test and some street (roll) racing action that will have you wondering just how high this four-banger can rev. The tiny Civic first tangles with a Ferrari 458 and make him look foolish. Next, he jumps on a turbocharged S2000 and a modified GT-R and puts both their lights out, respectfully. Then he Read More

Special Delivery – McLaren 675LT Spyder

August 1st, 2016

How friggin’ lucky is this guy? Today Shmee is taking special delivery of his 2016 McLaren 675LT Spyder in (what the new owner has deemed) MSO Orion Purple. Can you even imagine taking delivery of such an automobile? Seems silly to think that I believed myself special when I took delivery of a new Harley Davidson Street Glide (due to a broken ankle – that’s another story) but this is far and above anything that I can imagine. The 675LT Spyder is a very unique automobile with it’s retractable roof and roadster style seating. Inside and out, this thing is awesome. There Read More

Quarter-Mile Pass – Lamborghini vs. Z06

July 28th, 2016

Advanced Modern Performance (Dallas, Texas) has built one heckuva Z06 Corvette. It’s so capable that it can claim the title of world’s fastest Z06 in the 1/4-mile with a 9.3-second pass. The question is; can it withstand this Underground Racing prepared Lamborghini? Let’s have a look. The Lambo seems to take the early advantage as the ‘Vette lags back coming out of the hole. Somehow, the Z06 comes back and lays down a 9.5-second pass and wins by 1/3-of a second. The Lambo had the fastest trap speed, posting a 173.58 to the Corvette’s 148.22. AMP is doing a tremendous Read More

Street Racing – Z06 vs. Porsche 911 and More

July 26th, 2016

BK34 has taken it to the streets (down in Mexico, of course) in his modified Corvette Z06. This bodacious bowtie is equipped with a 6.2-liter supercharger engine from the factory. Add some strategically placed bolt-ons, a camshaft upgrade, and some upgraded cylinder heads and you have the advertised 580whp. He should have his hands full tonight with a Porshe 911 and a Toyota Supra. The ‘Yota has a Precision 6765 turbo and is claiming 650hp. The Porsche is running some very pricey aftermarket add-ons and claiming 540hp at the rear wheels. This is highly-competitive, 3-wide roll racing. Let’s take a Read More
