Porsche 944 LS Swap – Street Hits

June 12th, 2019

In the 1986 Porsche 944, you have a lightweight sports car that is nimble and close to the ground. The Chevrolet LS engine is cheap and easy to build. It is durable enough to withstand serious power adders and (with the correct exhaust system) has a deep and throaty exhaust note that’ll make any red-blooded car enthusiast fall in love. Combine the 944 with the LS engine and you have a small, rear-wheel drive coupe that sticks to the road and has power to spare. The engine bay of this daily driver is loaded with a 6.2-liter (LS3) V8 engine Read More

June 11th, 2019

From Britain, with love. Lightweight and scary fast, the 2019 McLaren 720S uses optimum horsepower and innovative aerodynamic prowess to achieve mind-numbing top end speed. With dihedral doors and a stunning aesthetic, the 720S is as beautiful as it is fast.

Shifting duties are trusted to a paddle shifted 7-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission. Zero to sixty can Read More

McLaren 570S Street Hits – ZR1, Mustang, Hellcat

June 5th, 2019

Summer’s here and the time is right for racing in the streets (of Mexico). You don’t see many McLarens on the street racing (roll or dig) scene in my neck of the woods. Nevertheless, this cat is out there trolling the highways for potential victims. Problem is, that this British bombshell might just let his alligator persona overload his jaybird capabilities. This murderer’s row of homegrown hooligans is no joke. We have an LSx powered Corvette with an F1X ProCharger claiming 850hp. There are a pair of ‘Vette entries of the ZR1 variety. Both have cylinder head and camshaft upgrades. Read More

Alright import fans – this one is for you. The feature car in this clip is one of the finest examples of a Toyota Supra that I have ever see. This is a frame off shop project car built by the skilled professionals at Drag International in Davie, Florida. Inside and out, this car is clean, clean! It is also a left-hand drive.

Exotic Drag and Roll – McLaren vs Porsche

May 17th, 2019

No. You are not likely to see this drag race produced from your average Saturday night car show. These two cars are about as exotic as they come, and both are terribly expensive. Let’s take a closer look. The Porsche is a 911 GT2 RS which means that it is basically a road race car. It is a rear-engine, rear-wheel drive, hardtop, coupe, with an automatic transmission (7-speed dual-clutch). The engine is a 3.8-liter, twin turbocharged, boxer, and it is capable of producing 700hp. With a 0 to 60 mph time of only 2.7-seconds, this beautiful German entry should be Read More

Cootamundra 2JZ King Supra

May 16th, 2019

Drag racing from Down Under – it’s the Motive Runway Thrash – and we’ve got the King of the six-cylinder Supras in this event. This right-hand drive Toyota Supra is a real beauty. Looking for a new challenge? How about racing in the Rear-Wheel Drive Class, in a car that is capable of producing more than 1,100hp; on an abandoned airstrip? After more than 500-competitors have cut the light at this venue, only approximately ten have posted an elapsed time of less than 10-seconds. This is a tough track.
