$3-Million Street Race – Porsche vs Ferrari

February 23rd, 2017

Hello race fans and drag racing aficionados in particular. Meet Leo from Performance HQ. Leo has a problem of which any car enthusiast would be envious. He owns these two amazing exotic automobiles and he doesn’t know which one is fastest. Let’s take a look as he tries to find out. First of all, I know that the race is taking place at the San Antonio Raceway, but it has all the elements of a street race. Theirs is lots of good natured trash talking, some friendly wagering, and a general lack of traction out of the hole. The first Read More

Huracan vs. GT-R – Street Rolls

February 14th, 2017

Hello race fans and street racing aficionados and welcome to an action packed night of roll racing on the streets of Phoenix (Mexico). This is an area where flat geography and low humidity make for ideal racing conditions. Let’s take a look and see what happens when some of the baddest supercars on the planet roll out on the same strip of highway. If you like imports then you’ll love this video. It has a trio of modified Nissan GT-R coupes, a Lamborghini Huracan, an AMG Mercedes-Benz, and even a stout Honda Civic (near the end). The feature car is Read More

Street Racing Compilation – Roll and Dig

February 8th, 2017

If you like racing on the streets (of Mexico); you will love this video! I almost laughed when I saw a turbocharged Volkswagen Corrado at the outset of this production – then the VW whipped a couple of Corvettes and a Camaro. The Sketchy Vert WS6 Trans Am was a little more than he bargained for but most street racers find that to be the case, All in all, this was not a bad night of roll racing for a four-banger VW. From there, it’s on to some dig racing. There are some pretty average rides to begin the night Read More

Track Testing the New Lamborghini Aventador S

February 4th, 2017

In an effort to keep pace in the ever evolving world of supercars, Lamborghini has introduced the all new Lamborghini Aventador S. Recent offerings from Ferrari and McLaren have made it necessary for Lamborghini to up the ante in the Aventador lineup. That brings us to the “S” version. In addition to an exterior face lift, the Aventador S also benefits from a more powerful engine, improved steering, and a universal controller that overlaps all of the car’s major components together for a much smoother and more refined driving experience. The test-driver refers to the new version S as a Read More

World’s Fastest Quarter-Mile Mitsubishi

February 2nd, 2017

Hello drag racing fans and aficionados! Say hello to the new king of Diamond Star Motors (DSM) 1/4-mile drag racers. With a best ET of 7.38-seconds @ 187.94 mph, Jeff Bush and crew pushed their slick looking 1993 Mitsubishi Eclipse (FMY401K) to the front of the pack in the dog-eat-dog world of DSM drag racing. The new world record pass took place during the Haltech World Cup Finals Import vs. Domestic event, at Maryland International Raceway. The car, sponsored by English Racing and Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) among others, was competing in the Street Fighter Class. Unfortunately, the team failed Read More

1600HP MK3 Supra – Taking it to the Streets

January 30th, 2017

They call me Ishmael – not really – but this is a whale story. Moby Dick it ain’t but a great white whale of a 1987 Toyota Supra is the star of this story. It’s not perfectly clear but I would guess that the moniker “Smiley’s White Whale” is derived from the pale paint color and the whale tail spoiler on the rear. It is perfectly clear, however, that this is no slow moving fish. It is equipped with what is often called a 1.5JZ engine (a 1JZ cylinder head on a 2JZ bottom end). It is a 3.2-liter, in-line Read More

Wild Wild West – Arizona Street Racing

January 25th, 2017

Howdy pardner! You’ve heard about the shootout at the O.K. Corral. Well, there’s another fight brewing (out Arizona way) and it also looks to have all the makings of a real shootout. The wide lanes and flat contours of Phoenix (Mexico) make this a fantastic town for roll racing on the interstate. This video showcases an over-confident Neon owner, a pavement pounding Nissan GT-R, a high-powered pack of really impressive street bikes, and some of the baddest Cadillacs (Badilllacs?) on the planet. The action begins with a cocky Dodge Neon SRT-4 getting used by an 1,100hp GT-R. The dodge loses Read More

Nurburg ’Ring-King’ Needs Our Help

January 23rd, 2017

This call goes out to all racing enthusiasts and lovers of high performance automobiles. There’s a bully of a race car on the track in Nurburg, Germany and it has a sticker price of $1-million. The legendary 12.9-mile track, called Nurburgring, has been the star of racing events, movies, and video games. I think I have personally raced more than a million laps on the ‘Green Death’ (on Gran Turismo). Now it’s time to knuckle up and help Viper Nation knock off this bully and retake the record at Nurburgring in April 2017. In 2011, the Dodge Viper ACR claimed Read More

LS Powered Porsche 911 Carrera

January 21st, 2017

You’ll either love this car or you’ll hate it. To the Porsche purist, this is the ultimate slap in the face but to a street racer, this thing is music to the ear. One thing is certain – whether you love it or hate it – it is one heckuva unique build and a potential street terror. The car started life as a run of the mill 1986 Porsche Carrera RSR with an air-cooled V6 chomping away in the rear. The current owner purchased the car as a complete build from a fellow named Hal McGinnis down in the great Read More

Roll Racing – Import vs. Motorcycle

January 18th, 2017

Any competent street (roll) racer knows that if you want to get an idea of how capable your car is, just pull alongside a sportbike (on the highways of Mexico) and rev up your engine. Chances are that if your whip can spank a lightweight, high-powered sportbike, it is ready to hit the highway for some roll racing action. The owner of this heavily modified Nissan GT-R decided he would make a night of rolling elite level sportbikes and this video is the compilation of his efforts. This car still has the factory 3.8-liter V6 engine. As you probably already Read More
