Mid-Engine Madness – Lamborghini Gallardo vs Ford GT

December 10th, 2019

The often-overlooked Ford GT was designed to beat up on Italian supercars. Skillfully and painfully developed, it has evolved into one of the most sophisticated – and intimidating – of all the American automobiles. The Joyride Ford GT is well equipped with a 5.4-liter supercharged V8 engine. It is capable of producing 600hp and has a manual transmission. It outweighs the Technocraft Gallardo by several hundred pounds (3,485/2,900) but has been professionally tuned and has a custom exhaust. Technocraft Lamborghini Gallardo is powered by a naturally aspirated 4.9-liter V10 that can make 520hp. This unit has an E-Gear transmission and Read More

1969 Pontiac GTO Turbo – 7-Second Beast

December 6th, 2019

While I am certainly no authority on the subject, having owned several Pontiac GTOs over the years, I can tell you that this is no ordinary GTO. Not only does it look like a million-bucks in its royal purple paint scheme, this thing gets out of the hole and through the trap in a hurry. Under the hood is a Pontiac mill with a giant turbocharger. Chrome and billet abound in the engine compartment and the engine is built with the best of everything. Ram Air ain’t got nothing on this setup. The action begins with the GTO going against Read More

First up is the driver’s meeting. The competitors ante up their entry fee and get the rules straight. After that, it’s off to the race location to get some rubber on the road. The Skinnie’s crew unloads their Read More

Greetings and Happy Thanksgiving drag racers and race fans. We are at Outlaw Armageddon for an all-out ball-out between some of the baddest in the business. It’s big boy No Prep at its finest!

Their slick-looking 2600hp Dodge Ram is powered by a Freedom Racing 6.8-liter inline 6-cylinder (bucket-sized pistons) engine.

Twin Turbo Viper vs Procharged Corvette Z06 – Street Hits

November 20th, 2019

Wow! This about as elite a degree of street racing as you will ever encounter. When you see firms like Calvo Motorsports represented; put your big boy (or girl) pants, fill the nitrous bottle, top off the fuel cell and check the racing harness – ‘cause it’s time to go racing. This is going to be a good one. Our cameraman starts off in an 850hp Ford Mustang with a stock 5.0 and twin turbochargers. Tonight, the Mustang will roll out against a yellow Chevy Corvette Z06 with an LSX and a Vortech YSi supercharger. It is making 1073hp on Read More

Crazy Classic Camaro – Supercharged Monster

November 18th, 2019

This crazy classic Camaro definitely falls into the category of ‘ground-pounders’. What began as a 1972 Chevrolet Camaro now looks like a shiny new Hot Wheels car with a giant blower poking through the hood. This burnt orange masterpiece sounds just like rolling thunder. We’ll find the owner and see what’s going on under the hood. Bobby says he’s running a 540 cubic-inch big block with a 14-71 blower strapped to it – “nothing fancy”, he goes on to say. The crew is still trying to get the bugs worked out. So, they ain’t making but about 2000hp. Ground pounder! Read More

TT Mustang GT350 vs Corvette, Hellcat and Lamborghini – Street Hits

November 15th, 2019

What? Street racing before dark? You gotta love that! These competitors have dipped down into Old Mexico for some roll racing under the bright sunshine. For the sake of safety and fairness, this type of racing is typically conducted in the wee hours of the morning (before daylight). This clip yields a rare look at some roll racing by top tier competition. Take a gander. The camera car (and focal point) for today is a modified (twin turbo) Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. It is silver in color; with black racing stripes. In the first matchup, the GT350 takes on a Read More

1100HP EVO IX vs. 280WHP Ninja H2 – Track Hits

November 12th, 2019

On a different note – this clip brings us a contest between an all-wheel drive sedan and a motorcycle. Both are radically modified for performance and speed. Typically the two-wheeled competitor takes the stripe in this type of contest but, since they trapped a similar speed, we figured what the heck. Here’s what happened. The bike is a Kawasaki Ninja H2. It is supercharged and has been tuned for performance. As it says in the title; this thing is capable of making 280whp and (of course) it’s super lightweight. The car is a bit more complicated. It begins with a Read More
