8-Second Ford Taurus – Hot Rod Drag Week

November 7th, 2018

Never seen a rear-wheel drive Taurus? How about an 8-second Taurus? I have never seen either one. Then again, I’ve never been to Estonia on the shores of Northern Europe. Andre Arnover, the owner of this 1972 Ford Taunus (not Taurus – thanks James) hails from this place whose native population is often mistaken for being Finnish or Polish. As though the little Ford wasn’t strange-looking enough, the rear fenders have been widened to accept larger (275) racing slicks. The motor is all Ford (no LS swap for these crazy cats). It’s a 427-Windsor (small block) being force fed air Read More

Sickest Acura on the Planet

November 6th, 2018

No, you have not flipped your wig! This is a left-hand drive, JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) Acura Integra that has been radically modified aesthetically and mechanically. The color is Porsche Orange but the attitude is cutting edge. Under the hood is a 2.4-liter (K24) bottom-end (from a Honda Element) with a K20R cylinder head. It has a Precision 62-millimeter turbocharger with a Golden Eagle intake manifold. Every electrical connector and wiring harness on this car is redone with heavy-duty in mind. Car owner, Ryan Basserri is the owner of Rywire so, innovative wiring is his stock in trade and it Read More

CorrupTT Mustang – Twin Turbo Ferrari Swap

November 4th, 2018

Welcome fellow speed freaks to the annual SEMA Auto Show! This video features a car that is so rare and so unique that you may never see another of its kind. The car began life as a fairly ordinary Ford Mustang. It has since been modified to include a 2.5-inch chop, integrated front fenders, and a Ferrari F430 V8 engine (twin turbo) under the hood. Car owner Tony Arme, founder of American Legends Hot Rods and Muscle Cars in Phoenix, Arizona, had the pony car sitting around in various states of disrepair since 2004. When he decided to build himself Read More

1000+HP Supra – Street Hits Ride Along

November 1st, 2018

This clip enables us to ride along with Toyota Supra owner/operator Yosdany in his 1,019whp creation. So, climb into the passenger seat, buckle in, and enjoy this POV perspective. This beast of a Supra is about to rip up the streets (of Mexico). Yosdany’a Supra has a stock bottom-end 2JZ inline 6-cylinder Toyota engine. A full ensemble of bolt-ons, performance exhaust, a Precision 7685 turbocharger, and tuning by Lance Toyomoto give this import a major bump in horsepower. Yosdany gives a nod to Larry at Drag International for helping him clear some of the parts hurdles associated with a build Read More

Import vs. Domestic – Boosted Mustang vs. Lamborghini

October 31st, 2018

Check it our all you high rollers. We have some import versus domestic roll racing south of the border, down Mexico way. In a rolling version of Clash of the Titans, these modified chariots are all set to do battle on the interstate. The gloves are off as these purpose-built machines lock horns in brief but intense contests that will take these cars from 60 mph to 140 mph, before lining up to do it again. In our first dust-up, we have a Paxton Mustang running E85 fuel; rolling out against a twin turbo Lamborghini (750hp) with an EuroPower Stage Read More

8-Second Lamborghini – Ride Along Street Hits

October 27th, 2018

Today you will be taking a ride with Taylor from Dallas Performance. He will be driving a 2018 Lamborghini Huracan Performante with a Stage 3+ twin turbo kit. That includes a built bottom end, CNC ported cylinder heads and this thing eats up pavement like a hog eats corn. As the first order of business, this video flips through some dig passes in a second Lamborghini. Just a series of contested and uncontested quarter-mile runs; consistently in the 8-second range @ 175 mph. If that interests anyone – it should – because this car sounds amazing! Next, climb on board Read More

750HP Toyota Cressida – Tackles Drag Week

October 26th, 2018

It’s time for Hot Rod Drag Week (1,000-miles roundtrip, four dragstrips, five-days) again. The Mighty Car Mods (MCM) YouTube show has turned up to campaign their Toyota Cresta (that’s Cressida in the U.S.). That is a four-door touring car not often associated with drag racing but MCM is known for their Japanese vehicle transformations. Let’s see what they have done with this sleeper. Although the Toyota seems like a great candidate for a 2JZ, this sedan is rolling with an inline 6-cylinder of a different breed. Ever heard of a Ford Barra engine? Well, this one is a 4.0-liter inline Read More

LS Swapped 280Z Turbo – Tears Up the Street

October 25th, 2018

Ready for a ride along? Our feature car is a 1975 Datsun 280Z. Not a stripped-down zombie wagon, this is a complete street car with nice paint and a great looking interior. Car owner Chris helped his Dad (Wolf) build the car before his dad passed a short rime ago. The video and the car are dedicated to his memory. Wolf was an old school legend in the car game and he could do anything on a car except build transmissions. Godspeed Wolf, wherever you are I hope you are banging gears and burning rubber everyday. You brought a car Read More

World’s Fastest 2018 Mustang – Street Hits

October 25th, 2018

Get in, buckle up, and hold on! It’s time for a great night of roll racing on the streets of Mexico. On hand is a rowdy mix of import and domestic vehicles that have been heavily modified for the sole purpose of street racing.
