Eighties Drag Race – Ferrari Testarossa vs. Lamborghini Countach

September 21st, 2021

Taking it old school, we join legendary British car enthusiasts James May and Richard Hammond (The Grand Tour) as they conjure up a drag race between a pair of eighties era supercars. Shall we go out to the track and find these two old blokes as they prepare to get their race on in these vintage sports cars? As these two codgers tow the line, they consider the potential for catastrophic failure to this pair of classic cars (from a sudden start/drag race). After some brief calculations, it is determined that a rolling start is preferred. Smart move. The 1982 Read More

1100HP Diesel Chevy C-10 Shortbed Takes on Drag Week

September 17th, 2021

As the Mecca of drag racing enthusiasts, Hot Rod Drag Week attracts some of the most capable straight-line machines in the world. This video focuses on some of those vehicles. Day 4 of Drag Week finds us looking at a diesel powered 1980 Chevrolet C-10 shortbed pickup with a pair of small turbochargers. This truck is rolling coal like it’s going out of style and leaving a ton of rubber on the track during his burnouts. The sawed-off truck cuts a clean light and totes the front out past the tree. He leaves a thick cloud of black smoke behind Read More

1400HP Nissan GT-R vs. 1370HP Ford Mustang – Drag Race

September 14th, 2021

Here we go again! This is a time-honored rivalry between a sports car from Japan and some Detroit muscle from the good old USA. Both these cars are twin turbocharged, and both are capable of making approximately 1400WHP. That’s where the similarities end. For instance, one is a V8 and the other is a V6. One is all-wheel drive and the other is rear-wheel drive. One is a purpose-built roll racer and the other is a drag car. With all their differences, this should be an interesting series of races. Let’s begin with the import. The 2017 Nissan GT-R is Read More

Half-Mile Airstrip Attack – 1700HP Porsche Goes 220 MPH

September 11th, 2021

Meet the pros from AIM Performance. These guys are to Porsche performance what a pig is to barbecue. Everything. Today they are working the kinks out of a colleague’s 911 before they ship it home. Three characteristics standout about this Porsche. It’s right-hand drive. It’s all-wheel drive. It’s awfully fast. Of course, the Porsche 911 is a rear-engine all-wheel drive machine. This one has been upgraded (stroked) from a 3.8-liter to a 4.1-liter engine. The motor is fully built and enhanced with a pair of Precision 6870 turbochargers. The gearbox is a Hewland sequential and the car is owned by Read More

You gotta love a car that looks grandma and runs like a gazelle. This 2017 Holden Commodore (Chevrolet SS) provides the perfect platform to build a street stunner. Let’s kick the tires on this sedan and see what makes it stand out from the crowd. The 2017 Commodore rolled off the assembly line with a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine rated at 415hp and 415 lb.-ft. of torque. The big V8 in this unit is mated to a 6-speed Tremec manual transmission. Car owner Joe has built on the stock foundation by sending the supercharger out for some expert porting at Read More

September 2nd, 2021

So, Kyle (1320 Video) turned up at the Ice Cream Cruise in Iowa (I-29 Dragway/Raceway Park of the Midlands) with his AMS built twin turbo Audi R8 V10 Plus. He was looking to do some roll racing and see how his Audi stacked up against serious competition from Sheepy Race and Underground Racing. Fortunately for Kyle, his buddy Jeremy was in attendance with his Sheepy Race built Lamborghini Huracan Performante. These two cars are almost identical from a performance standpoint. Jeremy has a slight advantage in weight with Kyle’s car tipping the scale approximately 600-pounds heavier than Jeremy’s. There are Read More

Ricky Bobby Nissan GT-R – 200+ MPH Rolls

August 27th, 2021

The Ricky Bobby GT-R is on the edge of the knife when it comes to top speed. It is purpose built for roll racing and half-mile racing events. Under the hood of this all-wheel drive import is a 4.1-liter T1 built V6 (billet block) with a pair of Precision 7685 turbochargers. With a 200hp shot of nitrous, this Nissan has the potential to produce nearly 3,000hp. Piloted by Terence Cox, the Ricky Bobby GT-R is one of the favorites to win the Unlimited Class. Fresh off the trailer, Terrence rolls into the left lane against a Cicio car. Terence puts Read More

Supra Shootout – 1050HP Nitrous A90 Goes Eights

August 26th, 2021

It’s time to look into the new (A90) Toyota Supra game. Since these BMW built Toyota sports cars burst onto the scene in 2020, they have gradually gotten faster and faster. Let’s join Adil Adams in his Titan Motorsports Supra and see what kind of results he expects to see this weekend. Titan has modified this Supra with a 3.2-liter stroker motor and a bottom-mount turbocharger with a CSF intake manifold. Honestly, almost every component on this car – from the transmission to the brakes to the fasteners to the air intake system has been enhanced in some way. Oh, Read More

600HP BMW M3 vs. 800HP Trans Am – 10 MPH Roll Racing

August 24th, 2021

Oh, yeah it’s on! THIS vs THAT has brought together two monster Time Attack cars and taken them completely out of their element. Today, these track beasts will compete in roll and dig racing for your enjoyment. I am anxious to see how this one shakes out. On the THIS side, we have a one-of-a-kind 1970 Pontiac Trans Am. Under the hood is a 6.6-liter all-aluminum Dart Racing block built by Motor Machine in Carmichael, California. Internals include a Callie’s custom crankshaft, a custom billet camshaft, custom aluminum connecting rods, custom JE pistons and half-inch main bearings. The Dart cylinder Read More

300WHP Ninja H2 vs. 1300HP TT Audi R8 – Half-Mile Drags

August 21st, 2021

This video documents the tale of two-wheeler versus four-wheeler in the standing half-mile. When Joe rolled into the Indy Airstrip Attack, he had no clue that he’d encounter Kyle (1320 Video) in his 1300hp Alpha built Audi R8 V10 Plus (twin turbocharged). This would afford Joe an opportunity to display the prowess of his 300whp Kawasaki H2 against some elite competition. The H2 is a beast in factory trim. Obviously, the H2 featured in this video has been modified well beyond stock. It all begins with a 998cc liquid cooled four-stroke. The inline four-cylinder engine is also supercharged. Power-to-weight ratios Read More
