November 8th, 2022

Chalk this one up as the latest battle in a timeless war between import and domestic. This contest will be a roll race between a twin turbocharged Infiniti Q50 and a naturally aspirated Chevrolet Camaro SS. After we get a closer look at the cars, you can pick a winner. The Camaro SS is a rear-wheel drive coupe with a 6.2-liter V8 engine. In stock trim, the Camaro SS can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.0-seconds and turn the quarter-mile in 12.3-seconds @ 116 mph. The all-aluminum V8 can generate 455hp and 455 lb.-ft. of torque. Featured in Read More

FL2K22 – 6-Second Mullet Chevy El Camino

October 12th, 2022

Greetings fellow drag racing fans and gearheads from every walk of life. Welcome to the Sunshine State for FL2K22. Today, we focus on internet personality, entrepreneur and drag racer Cleetus McFarland and his insane Mullet twin turbo Chevrolet El Camino. It’s Day 3 and the action is heating up. Despite some mechanical issues, Mullet is hitting some impressive numbers. Smoke from the underhood area prompted Cleetus to lift near the eight-mile mark and he still posted a 7.18-second pass @ 158 mph on his first run of the day. That’s good by anyone’s standards – especially with an oil leak. Read More

Modified Infiniti Q60S vs. R35 Nissan GT-R – Dig and Roll

July 15th, 2022

Make no mistake, what we have here is a drag race between a pair of the finest cars that Nissan has to offer. Infiniti? Anyone who has ever worked on an Infiniti will tell you that Nissan identification labels are stuck all over. You see, Infiniti is the luxury division of Nissan. Today, we pit one against the other in a quarter-mile battle of speed and acceleration. If I were picking a winner, it would be the GT-R. Why? The GT-R is lighter and makes more horsepower. Under the hood of the stock Nissan GT-R is a twin turbocharged 3.8-liter Read More

June 21st, 2022

Taking it back to the street – these good ol’ boys (and girls) are getting down on the interstate (in Mexico) – bakery style. There’s roll racing on the agenda for this evening and the competitors are serious about their horsepower. Pin back your ears and hold on tight ‘cause it’s about to get real. Right outta’ the gate, we have a Pontiac G8 sedan with bolt-ons and a kit of nitrous. He’s taking on a Chevy Camaro SS with an all-aluminum 7.0-liter engine. These two competitors go at it hot and heavy for multiple hits. The action is relatively Read More

Corvettes, Mustangs, BMWs, Infinitis and More – Street Racing

March 9th, 2022

It’s about to be on like Donkey Kong! These street racers have tuned their machines and turned up on the local interstate (in Mexico) for some cutthroat roll racing action. Let’s drop on the festivities – already in progress. First up is a Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (upgraded cylinder heads and camshaft) against a 5.0 Ford Mustang with an Odin supercharger. The Mustang gets the jump in the first hit before traffic interferes. In the second hit, the Mustang again jumps out front. The ‘Vette drives around him near the end. Too close for me to call. Race number two is Read More

Chevrolet Work Truck (Turbo Added) Roll Racing on the Interstate

December 10th, 2021

I don’t know how things are in your neck of the woods but down my way, a fast pickup provides the best of everything. Half-ton pickups offer a relatively lightweight platform with a big motor and moderately durable suspension. They are ripe for the picking when it comes to modification via a power adder. This young buck has added himself a turbocharger (specifics unknown) to his V8 powered Chevy Silverado. With all the tweaks worked out, he is set to hit the interstate (of Mexico) for a bit of fun. Here we go! First to try the Turbo Chevy is Read More

V6 Turbo Swapped Nissan 240sx – Build Tips and Street Hits

May 29th, 2020

Greetings speed enthusiasts and other gearheads. Allow me to introduce Andre Cargrill and his Ugly Duckling. Andrew has been 15-years building the version of the Ugly Duckling that hits the streets (of Mexico) today. Last time we saw Andrew’s car, a 1995 Nissan S14 240sx, it was equipped with a turbocharged Nissan KA four-cylinder engine. The four-banger was more than adequate – and Andrew builds a really nice ride – but he wanted a little more. Now, the duck is powered by an Infiniti (Nissan) VQ35HR V6 motor with a massive turbo. Numerous modifications were necessary for the chassis of Read More

Infiniti vs. GT-R – Street Hits

October 5th, 2019

by: Julianna Baron So, here’s the sit rep: We have an Infiniti G35 that looks (inside and out) like it just came from the junk yard. The interior (and wiring) is torn up and the exterior looks like it has been in a demolition derby. It is rough. Thing is, it has undergone an engine upgrade and it has a big turbo strapped to it. Sure, it ain’t the neatest job but it’s getting 1,000hp to the wheels. That’s according to the owner. In an effort to quiet the naysayers, he has called out a modified Nissan R35 GT-R. Unlike the Read More

Junkyard Dog – Pontiac Firebird on AWD GT-R Chassis

July 10th, 2019

When Gregg (lead technician for the Hoonigan Racing Division) decided to build a retromod of his own, you just knew that it would be something unique and awesome. Well, it does not disappoint. First, Gregg spotted a rusted-out hull from a 1971 Pontiac Trans Am. It had been sitting in a desert (just outside Vegas) for more than a decade. Full of tumbleweeds and sand, the body actually had a river running through it at one time. Gregg pulled the forgotten Thunder Chicken out of the cactus den and took it home to begin its rebirth. Never wanting to blend Read More
