700HP AWD Civic Taking It to the Streets

July 22nd, 2015

Check out this clip! If you really want to get the jump on the competition, try switching to all-wheel drive. This innovative cat salvaged the traction-happy components from an earlier model Honda vehicle, and then did whatever was necessary to deliver 700hp and 583-lb.-ft. of torque to the four corners. He certainly gets out of the “roll” quicker than the 1,000hp Mustang Fox but can’t hold the Ford off at the midway point. Here is a bit of the Civic setup: Begin with a stock block 1.6-liter Honda V-TEC engine with forged rods and internals, add a Precision 6262 Turbocharger Read More

2100HP TT Lamborghini Huracan Busts 200MPH

July 13th, 2015

Press the PLAY button and say hello to what is being billed as the world’s first twin turbocharged Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4. This lime green beauty showed up at the Texas Invitational Automotive Airfield Exhibition presented by the Texas Speed Syndicate, all the way down in Houston, Texas. Then the gang at Underground Racing proceeded to show out – wrenching the X Package equipped Italian screamer to speeds of over 200mph. Right “out of the box” the Huracan is no trifling street car. It is outfitted with a 5.2-liter V10 engine that produces 602hp. It is an all-wheel drive, 2-passenger, mid-engine Read More

The Worlds Quickest and Fastest R35 GT-R

July 7th, 2015

Alpha Performance, based in Chicago, Illinois, has done it again. You may recall that their high-powered numero-uno R35 GT-R already won the title “King of the Streets” at the recent Texas Invitational, hosted by the Texas Speed Syndicate. Since then, they have been busy trying their best to blow the engine up in this potent Nissan. Now any racer knows that stock engines are not built to withstand the rigors of forced air induction over long periods of time – especially when output levels reach over 2,000hp. Normally these extreme output levels would require an engine refresh (if not replacement) Read More

New Mexico Gang Style Street Racing

July 6th, 2015

What do you get when you pit four elite level forced air induction street racing machines against one another on the thoroughfares of New Mexico? You get cops, controversy, and tons of speed. You also get street racing – wild, wild, West style. Check out this feature video. First things first; the Corvette is running a supercharged 416-cubic-inch stroker motor with a 200 shot of nitrous. The owner/operator claims a dyno-certified 1,101hp and he is riding on Mickey Thompson E/T Streets. Next is an Alpha prepared Nissan GT-R. These cars are always ready for just about anything. He is also Read More

Street Racing: Import VS. Domestic

July 3rd, 2015

There is something extra-thrilling about racing at night. As the sun fades and the moon makes its appearance, ambient temperatures ease down and racing conditions enter the realm of perfection. This video documents just such a street race, as a potent all-wheel drive import supercar clashes with a hard charging all-American rear-wheel drive muscle car. Let’s begin with the C5 Corvette. It is equipped with a specially built 418-cubic-inch V8 racing engine. In front of that sits a single Precision 8891 turbocharger, behind it a 6-speed manual transmission with a Monster Lt1-R clutch. Output is estimated loosely at 1,100+HP. The Read More

200+ MPH at 2015 Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack

June 30th, 2015

Shiny Lamborghinis, Nissan GT-Rs, Porsche 918s, Corvettes, Camaros, and other exotic street cars provided a fresh new wrinkle at the 2015 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC). This video portrays bits from this past weekends second running of the PPIHC Airstrip Attack, sponsored by the Revvolution Modified Lifestyle and Shift-S3ctor, as these awesome street machines blast down dual half-mile airstrips in a unmitigated contest of speed and driving prowess. Twin turbo was the obvious theme of the event so, of course, the Lamborghini “fleet” from Underground Racing was in attendance. The GT-R contingent was also “stretching their legs” in the Read More

Twin Turbo Viper – King of the Streets?

June 25th, 2015

Congratulations to Andy N. and the gang at D3 Performance Engineering for a win in the Rear-Wheel Drive Class at the 2015 Texas Invitational Automotive Airfield Exhibition. Andy also campaigned his twin turbocharged Viper successfully in the King of the Streets Class, defeating a couple of turbocharged Underground Lamborghinis and making it to the finals before falling to the AMS Performance Nissan GT-R. Andy’s Dodge Viper is powered by a 540-cubic-inch Gentry Performance engine with twin 76-millimeter turbochargers slamming air down its gullet. With the boost turned down to 25 psi, horsepower is estimated at 1,750, with a ceiling of Read More

2000HP GT-R vs. 2000HP Lamborghini

June 24th, 2015

Maybe you have heard of a little performance outfitter from Oberlin, Ohio, called Switzer Performance. Here is a video that depicts their flagship Goliath GT-R in head to head drag racing (and roll racing) against some pretty stout competition. Porsche, Nissan, Chevrolet, and Lamborghini all roll out to challenge Goliath. The GoPro mounted on the right front fender of the GT-R catches all the up-close action (does that hood make anyone else as nervous as it does me?) The Switzer Goliath package includes an engine and transmission rebuild, driveline and suspension upgrades, twin turbochargers, specially made manifolds and intercoolers, and Read More

2,000HP AMS GT-R King of the Streets

June 18th, 2015

For the second time in as many years,  the AMS GT-R has defeated all challengers at the event which many driving enthusiasts believe is the epitome of roll racing; the Texas Invitational Automotive Airfield Exhibition. Amid a field that includes several twin-turbocharged Lamborghinis and a TT-Dodge Viper, the AMS Performance built Nissan GT-R endures to the end in some very close heads up roll racing. The AMS GT-R is equipped with a fresh Alpha 4.0-liter all-aluminum big-bore engine block and a pair of Alpha CNC ported cylinder heads. A full Alpha exhaust system, specially tuned Alpha Omega turbo kit (complete Read More

1,325HP GT-R vs. Porsche 918 Spyder

June 8th, 2015

Two of the most prominent supercars on the planet square-off in this epic battle of speed and driving technique. This clip provides video evidence than a $100k supercar can tangle with a $1-million supercar and come out on top. Although the Nissan has been drastically modified (probably at least an additional $50k), many would consider it the underdog in any race that includes the legendary high-performance-hybrid Porsche 918 – not so fast! The Porsche 918 Spyder utilizes a mid-mounted 4.6-liter V8 internal combustion engine and a series of lithium-ion battery powered electric motors to generate 887-horsepower and accomplish a stunning Read More
