Heavy-Duty Plymouth – Flying Fins

January 30th, 2018

If there is one thing that we’ve learned from Hot Rod Drag Week it’s that it takes a ton of heart to compete in this gruelling, week-long event. This unique old Mopar (and the crew that makes it go down the track) is from Finland. In fact, it is the first street legal Finnish drag race car to dip into the sevens. It is a 1967 Plymouth VIP. These guys have got loads of heart but their luck is a bit less plentiful. Only a day after arriving in the midwest and getting the car unpacked they broke a valve Read More

190 MPH Sequential EVO IX

January 30th, 2018

Wow! Talk about dialing up the boost – the sequentially shifted DSM is back and it’s better than ever. With a brand new Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) 6-inch front-mounted intercooler, the boost is turned all the way up to 55 psi. A new AEM Infinity controller, tuned by Lance (Toyomoto), makes sure that plenty of E85 fuel makes it to the cylinders. Any way you slice it – more air and more fuel equals increased performance. This sporty sedan is prepared by Machines Gone Wild (Miami, Florida). It features a Ronnie Crawford built 2.2-liter engine with Carillo connecting rods and Read More

GT-R vs. ZR1 and Z06 – Street Rolls

Sedan Showdown – Mercedes-Benz AMG E63 S vs. Cadillac CTS-V

January 20th, 2018

While no battle of high-performance sedans can be exhaustive if it excludes the innovative (and quick) Tesla P90 SD, this contest pairs two of the most capable “grocery getters” on street or strip. The first is the 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG E63 S. Right outta the gate, you know that any entry bearing the famed AMG badge is outfitted to compete with every vehicle on the panet. This sedan is of the front-engine, all-wheel drive variety. It utilizes a 4.0-liter, DOHC, 32-valve, twin-turbocharged, V8 engine and a 9-speed automatic transmission.

C7 Corvette Z06 vs. Nissan GT-R – Street Rolls

January 18th, 2018

This video is taking it to the streets; the streets of Old Mexico, that is. The purpose of this venture is to document a night of interstate roll racing between some of the baddest imports and domestics to ever roll onto the highway. In our first contest of the evening, we have a Nissan GT-R that has been upgraded with a BoostLogic 1000x turbocharger setup. It is rolling against a C7 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (1,000hp). The ‘Vette has an issue getting into third gear during the initial pass but walks the Nissan in multiple passes after that. The next contest Read More

Mustang Madness – Turbo GT500

January 16th, 2018

If you want to win a ton of races (street or strip), a good place to start is with a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. With its powerful, supercharged V8 (5.8-liter) engine, the Shelby GT500 is capable of producing 662hp and 631 lb.-ft. of torque from the factory. Add a turbocharger (or two) and you have an absolute beast of a race car that posts consistent 6-second quarter-mile times at more than 200 mph. The Haltech World Cup Finals Import vs. Domestic brings out some of the best drag racers in the country to compete for cash and bragging rights. Our Read More

VETKILR – 2JZ Mitsubishi Starion

January 12th, 2018

With a personalized license plate that reads “VETKILR” you might just as well have a target on your bumper. At the very least, you’d better have something under the hood to keep the wolves from the door (or rear bumper). If memory serves me, there was never anything impressive under the bonnet of a Mitsubishi Starion – not from the factory at least. That would explain why this DSM owner decided to take a different path to backing up his license plate. Sure, he could’ve went with an LS swap. I mean – it’s quick and economical but everybody is Read More

Street Hits – DSM EVO 8 vs. Corvette Z06

January 12th, 2018

In an earnest effort to prove that there is no replacement for displacement, this beautiful, black Chevrolet Corvette Z06 will take on an EVO 8 (with a big turbocharger) on the streets of Mexico. This C6 ‘Vette is of the Z06 variety. That means that is is equipped with a boisterous 7.0-liter (all-aluminum) V8 engine. From the factory it is capable of producing 505hp. It is equipped with titanium connecting rods and intake valves and has attention focused on maximizing air flow and valve timing. This particular car has been upgraded with high-performance cylinder heads, camshaft, and intake manifold. The Read More

Supercar Shootout – Palm Beach Raceway – Dig and Roll

January 12th, 2018

Greetings racing fans and welcome to Palm Beach Raceway in sunny Jupiter, Florida. While this gathering of exotic supercars could have well been conjured up on a gaming console, this is video evidence of an actual event that took place in the Sunshine State. On hand were some of the most popular high-performance sports cars on the planet. They got together to see which of them was the baddest all-around supercar. Some were modified and others were stock but every driver came into this event with a desire to prove their machine was superior to the rest. Up first are Read More

3-Wide Street  Rolls – GT-R vs. Mustang vs. Corvette

January 12th, 2018

Nothing says “loving” like some 3-wide street racing on the interstates of Old Mexico. That is especially true when you have a slew of radically modified imports and domestics ready to roll up on one another and get jiggy with it. Check it out! First of all; our camera car is a Procharged Corvette C7 with exhaust headers. It is running 93 octane premium fuel and taking on a Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck (in the initial contest) with a stock 6.0-liter engine and a Borg Warner S480 turbocharger (10 psi of boost). He is burning E85 fuel. The pickup jumps Read More
