900HP Subaru – Journey to the 8-Second Quarter-Mile

August 19th, 2019

I got mad respect for this father/son team representing Cuba. Pops has been a technician for more than sixty-years. He got junior started early in the engine building game and it’s finally paying off. The two have combined their resources on this 900hp Subaru with outstanding results. Like most of us, they are looking to shave time from their next pass down the strip. Today, these guys are looking for that elusive 8-second pass in the quarter-mile. Their 2005 Subaru WRX STi is a work of art. With hundreds of passes in the books, this Fuji Heavy Industries stud comes Read More

10-Second Acura NSX – Track Dig and Roll

August 15th, 2019

So, many among us are guilty of overlooking (underestimating) the Acura NSX. I know that I am one such individual. In an effort to say oops to the vaunted Japanese car giant (Honda), this post will focus on a 2017 Acura NSX which has undergone only tuning mods. Can the little mid-engine (hybrid) roadster stand up to the track test? Today, it’s drag racing and roll racing. Let’s have a look. In the first pass of the video, this Mustang sounds exactly like a power saw. I don’t know what one must do to make his car sound like a Read More

Turbo Porsche – 9-Second Quarter-Mile

August 14th, 2019

Greetings drag racing fans. Allow me to introduce you to Richard Martin and his one-owner Porsche. Even though this car looks like a killer of curves, it will run through the quarter-mile like a scalded dog. Let’s get with Richard and have him give us a run-down of the car. First of all, it’s a 2016 Porsche 911 Turbo S with a stock motor. What makes it special is a ByDesign Stage 4 Kit which includes intercoolers with an IPD intake and plenum. It also has ByDesign tuning and a methanol injection. The turbochargers are upgraded, but details are hazy. Read More

Domestic Street Beasts – Highway Hits

August 12th, 2019

It’s time again to head out to the interstate (of Mexico) with a group of tier one street (roll) racers. These guys boast some of the baddest purpose-built roll racing machines in the nation. Saddle up! Fresh out of the gate, we have a twin turbo Gen VI Camaro against a turbo LS Mustang (so, basically two Camaros). The Mustang falters on the hit and can’t continue. A Fox Body with a turbo Coyote motor takes his place. Looks like the Ford got him but it’s difficult to say for certain. Next up is a closer look at the previously Read More

The flagship of the Toyota faithful has finally been tuned to run the quarter-mile. Toyota enthusiasts have waited over a decade for the release of a “new” Supra.

Output is estimated at 335hp. An 8-speed paddle shifted automatic transmission and Brembo 4-piston ventilated disc brakes are the types of features that make this a special car. Today, the pros at Real Street Performance will see what they Read More

Lucas Oil Raceway was the backdrop for a glorious day of drag racing as this awesome S10 pickup takes on compacts and full-size pickups in his quest for cash and a trophy. Making this little truck go is an aluminum block LS (5.3-liter) engine with a Dougherty Racing camshaft (custom grind) and a Precision Pro Mod turbocharger.

Roll Racing – West Texas Street Hits

August 5th, 2019

As temperatures reach into the triple digits and the days grow longer, street racers take to the interstates (of Mexico) for some roll racing in the night air. This is door handle to door handle racing from 60 mph to 140 mph – as quickly as possible. It’s a warm night but I almost have goose bumps as we roll onto the interstate. Slow. Deliberate. Like a storm rolling in on the horizon. Suddenly a Mustang pulls alongside the 1,000hp Twin Turbo Trans Am and gives the sign. A count erupts and it’s on like hotcakes! In multiple passes, the Read More
