Tesla Model S P100D 1/4 Mile Testing at Palm Beach International Raceway vs a Huracan and Nissan GT-R

September 24th, 2016

While we got rained out last week and weather wasn’t looking good for this week either, we headed out to Palm Beach International Raceway to give the all new Tesla Model S P100D Ludicrous it’s first real world test down the 1/4 mile drag strip. Luckily the weather held and we got some awesome races in. To make things interesting we lined up the Tesla vs a Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 and based on previous runs with the Huracan and some Racelogic VBOX tests with the P100D, we knew it was going to be a close race.  Behind the wheel of the Read More

New Half-Mile World Record

September 23rd, 2016

Underground Racing (UR) has scored again with their earth shaking X-Package. UR has taken the lead in developing turbocharged performance machines and, if this past weekend’s festivities are any indication, they aren’t planning on relinquishing their position any time soon. The backdrop is a closed airstrip during the ShiftS3ctor event in McMinnville, Oregon. All of the top players are on hand for this event, as you might expect, and world records are being broken all weekend. At the end of the event, Richard Fowler owned the new World Record in the 1/2-mile at 247.25 mph – that’s 7 mph faster Read More

Porsche vs. Lamborghini – Rolling Airstrip Attack

September 14th, 2016

It just don’t get any better than this! Here is a video that captures some of the baddest exotic supercars on the planet; locked in on the finish line in a battle of outright acceleration to top speed. If you love ultra expensive performance autos, then the cockpit view (from the front seat of a Porsche 991 Turbo S Mk II) will have you white-knuckling the proverbial dash all the way to the end and the setting for the airstrip is absolutely pristine. So, what is left to vex my troubled brow? How about a third pass – because one-and-one Read More

Indy Nights – Street Racing Superheroes

August 29th, 2016

First of all, this is some serious street racing action. Second off, allow me to ask this question: If you come out of pocket for a Lamborghini, then get your lunch eaten by a Honda Civic, do you immediately head home and cry into your pillow? I ain’t trying to be disrespectful – just asking. If you find yourself in a similar predicament, you might want to go underground (Underground Racing, that is). So, here’s the extremely diverse lineup. There’s are a pair of Honda Civics with huge turbochargers and they are taking no prisoners. Then there is a 1JZ Read More

World Record Quarter Mile Pass – Audi R8

August 26th, 2016

This is the sound of Underground! The whole world knows that Underground Racing (UR) is on the forefront of high performance multiple turbocharger enhancements for the street. This video shows us that UR is not just breaking barriers with their Lamborghini creations; they are capable of setting world records across their entire vehicle range – up to and including Audi’s top tier coupe. It also treats us to a world record breaking 1/4-mile pass for an Audi R8. This canary yellow rocket blasts through the 1320 in 9.025-seconds at 160 mph flat. This 2017 Audi R8+ DCT rolls off the Read More

Honda Civic Traps 189 MPH at Pikes Peak

August 11th, 2016

The competitors are breaking the 200 mph barrier (on a regular basis) during this week’s 2016 Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack but who expects to see a Honda Civic that can turn 189 mph trap speeds?  The truth is that this is no ordinary Civic – but it is ninety-nine-percent Honda. Start with a run-of-the-mill, 2,300-pound hatchback Honda Civic. Now, snatch that four-cylinder mill out of there and replace it with a ultra smooth 3.5-liter V6 engine from a front wheel drive Honda Odyssey van. Before cramming it back under the hood, install a set of high-performance cylinder heads and camshafts Read More

Underground Lamborghini Street Clash

August 8th, 2016

Now this is my idea of a perfect Sunday drive (until the end). The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and I’m behind the wheel of a beautiful, skillfully modified, elite level street racer. To make this relaxing ride even more enjoyable, two like-minded individuals roll up in their tricked out supercars. Since we’re already in Mexico (where street racing is perfectly legal), my acquaintances and I decide to “blow the soot” out of our machines and engage in a little friendly competition – you bet there’s gonna to be a race! Roll racing is the order of the day and Read More

Lamborghini Huracan Race vs Stock Exhaust Comparison

August 5th, 2016

We had some time with a Verde Scandal Huracan over at Lamborghini Broward with the Lamborghini OEM Race exhaust system and did a side by side comparison between the race and stock exhaust systems from a sound perspective.  The race exhaust system is about 10dB louder, sheds some weight and adds some power over the stock system that comes with the car from the factory. We decided to proceed with the install and will be doing some follow up testing on the dyno as well as some VBOX  and 1/4 mile testing at Palm Beach International Raceway.  We’ll also add some pics to this post after Read More

Quarter-Mile Pass – Lamborghini vs. Z06

July 28th, 2016

Advanced Modern Performance (Dallas, Texas) has built one heckuva Z06 Corvette. It’s so capable that it can claim the title of world’s fastest Z06 in the 1/4-mile with a 9.3-second pass. The question is; can it withstand this Underground Racing prepared Lamborghini? Let’s have a look. The Lambo seems to take the early advantage as the ‘Vette lags back coming out of the hole. Somehow, the Z06 comes back and lays down a 9.5-second pass and wins by 1/3-of a second. The Lambo had the fastest trap speed, posting a 173.58 to the Corvette’s 148.22. AMP is doing a tremendous Read More

9-Second Alpha 10 Huracan

July 18th, 2016

The staff at Alpha Performance has undertaken the task of trying to destroy their own Alpha 10 Huracan turbocharger kit – thus far with no success. First, they hit the road for the brutal 3,000-mile Gold Rush Rally; stopped by Pike’s Peak and ran the Tail of the Dragon. Through rigorous testing, the Alpha 10 kit performed without a hitch. Next, they went out to the drag strip and you can see the results here. The car ran consistent 9-second passes without fail. The Alpha 10 system utilizes the stock engine and requires only bolt-on installation. It features a pair Read More
