10-Second Acura NSX – Track Dig and Roll

August 15th, 2019

So, many among us are guilty of overlooking (underestimating) the Acura NSX. I know that I am one such individual. In an effort to say oops to the vaunted Japanese car giant (Honda), this post will focus on a 2017 Acura NSX which has undergone only tuning mods. Can the little mid-engine (hybrid) roadster stand up to the track test? Today, it’s drag racing and roll racing. Let’s have a look. In the first pass of the video, this Mustang sounds exactly like a power saw. I don’t know what one must do to make his car sound like a Read More

June 18th, 2019

Welcome to one of the most grueling tests of man and machine to be found anywhere on earth. Drag cars – designed to accelerate quickly over a short distance, reach a maximum speed and suddenly come to a near halt – are charged with travelling to four venues over seven-days. The drag cars must be driven the 1,000-miles (roundtrip) over the Rocky Mountains and back! Bru-tal! It is common to see a tubbed-out muscle car or late model, pulling a travel trailer full of tools and car parts, during Rocky Mountain Race Week. Unfortunately, it’s also pretty common to see Read More
