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

Import Street Shootout – Roll and Dig

September 14th, 2016

The increasing availability of turbochargers to the sport of street racing has forever changed the face of what is arguably the most popular motorized sport in America. Despite competitors being forced to take their high performance dramas south of the border (for legal reasons), street racers continue to blow their top when it comes to modifying their machines for maximum performance and optimum horsepower. This clip runs the gambit from high-dollar exotic sports cars to good old domestic muscle. It opens up with a majestic Porsche 911 Turbo S, with an upgraded turbocharger, a high performance intake manifold, high performance Read More

1200HP R34 Skyline GT-R

September 10th, 2016

I think I’ll call this color Emerald Chrome. It’s absolutely stunning on this radically modified Nissan R35 Skyline GT-R, but never mind the aesthetics; this coupe is built to tame the track. When the team at Motive DVD (from the United Kingdom, I presume) was asked to build this monster, they set out with a purpose; to dominate the street car class at Powercruise events around the globe. While Motive stopped short of revealing all their design secrets, they did cover the basics and treat us to a grand video ride-along. To make this car competitive and unique, these Brits Read More

Chi-Town Heat – Roll Racing on the Street

September 6th, 2016

If there is one thing that they can do in Chi-town, it’s throw-down on the streets. Naturally, when we got a chance to check out what kind of roll racing Chicago (Mexico) has to offer; we loaded up our wagons and hit the dusty trail. To say the least, we were not disappointed. On hand was a 2016 BMW X5 M (yes, an SUV) powered by a 4.4-liter twin turbocharged V8 with aftermarket bolt-ons and a software upgrade. It’s good for about 800whp. There’s a 2003 Porsche 911 Turbo that has a modified intercooler, exhaust headers, and high performance mufflers. 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

Giant Killer – 670HP Turbo K20 Honda Civic

August 4th, 2016

This little import doesn’t make a lot of noise but it does carry a big stick. Never mind that this Honda looks like it’s missing a few panels, it is wreaking havoc on the streets (of Mexico I’m certain), and taking no prisoners. Here is a dyno test and some street (roll) racing action that will have you wondering just how high this four-banger can rev. The tiny Civic first tangles with a Ferrari 458 and make him look foolish. Next, he jumps on a turbocharged S2000 and a modified GT-R and puts both their lights out, respectfully. Then he Read More

Street Racing – Ludicrous Tesla vs. Modified GT-R

July 22nd, 2016

In this clip, it’s about to jump off between two extremely powerful but dramatically different daily drivers. The race is all out mayhem between two all-wheel drive powerhouses and it goes from 0 to 100 mph – for $1,000. Whoever is out front, when either car hits 100 mph, takes home the cash. The Tesla S P85D (in Ludicrous mode) is one tough hombre. The Tesla is all-electric, makes approximately 762hp, and can rocket from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.8-seconds. The Nissan is no slouch, with over 550 factory hp and all the bolt-ons. Buckle up – this Read More

True Street – 1100HP Nitto R34 Skyline GT-R

July 16th, 2016

The perfect example of a street car is one that you can beat on during long days at the strip and then drive home in the comfort of cool air conditioning. This Nitto GT-R is just that type of car. It has 245/70/17 Mickey Thompson ET street radial tires but it can still make a 9-second 1/4-mile pass if the need arises. This all-wheel drive monster has a Nitto modified 3.2-liter block with a stroker kit, JE forged pistons, topped with a race ported RB26 cylinder head, and custom secret-spec camshafts. A Precision 8285 turbocharger forces massive amounts of air Read More

Mongoose – 680WHP Nissan 240SX

July 6th, 2016

The featured car in this video has the uncommon ability to tear up the drag strip and stick to the curves like a mouse to a glue-trap. The owner campaigns this beauty on the local 1/4-mile one weekend and runs the heck out of the regional road course the next. This thing is scary fast with neck-snapping torque. This rear-wheel drive coupe is equipped with a 2JZ-GTE Toyota engine, a transmission from an Infiniti G35,  and a rear differential from an Infiniti Q45. It has been treated to an extensive porting and polishing job (intake manifold, exhaust headers, and cylinder Read More

Nissan Drone Does 0 to 60 mph in 1.3-Seconds

June 23rd, 2016

Today Nissan introduces us to their new high-performance drone. Its sole purpose is to track and film the 2017 Nissan GT-R during high-speed maneuvers but today it will race against the GT-R. This impressive drone is built by Tornado XBlades Racing and piloted by James Bowles (2015 British National Drone Racing Champ). The race will take place on the 1/2-mile track at Silverstone (U.K.). The GT-R top speed is an electronically controlled 195 mph. It should leave the drone in the dust (with its top speed of just 114 mph) but curves and hills must be taken into account. This Read More
