June 15th, 2018

Baby-faced Joe Hunt must take on a field of twenty-five racers to pick up his first win in the Blackhawk Pontiac WS6 Trans Am. Racing is of the No Prep, drag variety and this is the hottest ticket on the market. The Blackhawk has undergone a dramatic rebirth. It has been transformed from a nitrous car that had little success keeping the front tires on the pavement to a more controllable beast of a twin turbo car. In the past, Joe has gotten close to the prize but just couldn’t quite bring it home. So, will he be able to Read More

Heads Up No Prep – Turbo Acura TL

June 14th, 2018

One of the great things about racing cars is that each competitor has the ability to express themselves through their vehicle. What might seem the farthest from a viable racing solution to most may be a vision in horsepower to another. Such could be said of this pretty blue Acura sedan. Did it begin life as a performance or sports car? Most certainly not. However, it did roll off the assembly line with a Honda VTEC 3.2-liter V6 engine. Can it handle turbocharged horsepower over extended periods of time? Probably not; so car owner Alden built the engine and sleeved Read More

World’s Fastest – 201 MPH – Integra

June 12th, 2018

While this clip features the World’s Fastest Acura Integra, it also showcases the best-of-the-best from TX2K18. There has been a ton of coverage for this event but there were so many amazing race cars on hand that it was unbelievable. First, the Acura; it is called Gringotegra, built and prepared by Extreme Turbo System (ETS) and English Racing. If these names sound familiar; it’s because their collaborative efforts have put them on the cutting edge in quarter-mile and half-mile racing in turbocharged cars (especially Nissan GT-Rs). In the front-wheel drive Gringotegra we find an inline four-cylinder engine. This differs greatly Read More

Mystery Solved – Beater Bomb Pops Hood

June 12th, 2018

So, this video is a little different. It documents the guys from 1320 as they saddle up and take a ride (by way of Mexico) over to an Omaha (NE) cruise-in car show. More importantly, the man, the myth, the legend – Beater Bomb – open his hood to finally let the world see what’s under there. Of course, when you get a group of gearheads on the asphalt, they can’t help but stomp the accelerator with frequency. That is especially true when you have outstanding examples like the Unicorn C5 Corvette ZR1 with a Huron Speed twin turbo kit Read More

1953 Chevy Bel Air – 10-Second Sleeper

June 7th, 2018

This is one of the most entertaining videos that I have seen in quite a while. If features a true street sleeper in the form of a beat up 1953 Chevrolet Bel Air. Never mind the rust and look past the patina – this thing is big and heavy but that don’t keep it from being fast! Of course, it all starts under the hood where a 6.0-liter LS (Chevy) V8 with an Isky camshaft and mild porting and polishing on the cylinder heads is working away. It’s also running a Precision turbocharger with Holley electronic fuel injection/engine management. The Read More
