1000HP EVO X Runs 198 MPH

October 19th, 2015

In the game of 9-ball, if you want a cue ball to spin fast, reach the brink of chaos, and yield lots of return, then you put a little “English” on it. In half-mile racing, on a closed airstrip, if you want a Mitsubishi Evolution to run like a bat out of Hades, then you better put a little English on it, as well. English Racing that is, where real boost doesn’t start until 30 psi. This video comes to you from the ShiftS3ctor Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack 2015. This thing is managing 1,034hp from a built 4B11T 2.0-liter inline Read More

Twin Turbo Viper Runs 8.39-Second Quarter-Mile

October 16th, 2015

This video begins with a no B.S. dyno run that offers proof of this Viper’s horsepower availability. This thing turned out 1,724-horsepower at the rear-wheels with the boost dialed down to 30 psi (maximum boost capacity is estimated at 35 to 36 psi). After pushing the dyno to its utter limits, the guys at D3 take the Snake out to the track for some electronically timed 1/4-mile passes. D3 has a reputation for producing 8-second cars and this clip certainly doesn’t tarnish it. This Mopar is equipped with a Greg Good racing engine, upgraded cylinder head fasteners, Pro EFI fuel Read More

2100HP Twin Turbo Audi R8

October 9th, 2015

This video depicts what is being touted as the world’s fastest Audi. It is an R8 that is stock in appearance. It has all of the amenities of a luxurious street car; air conditioning, power windows, satellite radio, even heated leather power seats. This is a fantastic looking car that manages to claim the title “King of the Streets” at the 2015 Texas Invitational Fall Airstrip Attack – now, that ain’t no easy task. This car gets by with the Underground Racing X Package, a pair of Precision 76-millimeter turbochargers, and it’s riding on Toyo R888 street tires. The little Read More

2000HP Texas Mile Corvette Z06

October 7th, 2015

This video is brought to us courtesy of KP Racing in Houston, Texas. It features Kelly Bise’s Chevrolet Corvette Z06 during dyno testing. In factory trim the Z06 is legendary by any standard but this little cream-puff is extraordinary in its own right. With a 427-cubic-inch Chevrolet LS engine, twin Pro-Mod 88-millimeter turbochargers, a 300-shot of nitrous, and a highly modified T56 transmission (with a custom-built 4-disc carbon-fiber clutch), Kelly has ambitions of claiming the Corvette record later this year during the Texas Mile event. If everything goes as planned, this car that is built specifically for the standing mile, could Read More

1200HP Shelby GT500 Dyno Run

September 16th, 2015

Check out the heavily modified KP Performance Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 as it gets put through the paces on the dynamometer. The Big Blue Oval may not be known for mind-numbing power but this is one mean ‘Stang. The first dyno pass nets 1,012hp and 1.047 lb.-ft. of torque. After a few tweaks, it manages 1.027hp and 1,176 lb.-ft. of torque. By the way, it is running on E85 fuel. This pony has a Kenne Bell Mammoth supercharger, L&M built 5.0-liter small block Ford engine (bored and Darden sleeved to 5.4-liters) with Diamond pistons, and a 200 shot of nitrous. Read More

Drag Racing Huracan vs 918 Spyder

September 9th, 2015

These are two seriously elite supercars and they are lining up head-to-head on a closed airstrip for a one-mile race with a rolling start. Both cars begin rather timidly and proceed gently to 60 mph – then all hell breaks loose! The Lamborghini leaps out in front of the Porsche and scampers down the track at a break-neck pace. Around 140 mph the 918 overtakes the Lambo and leaves him in his wake. As you probably know, the Huracan is Lamborghini’s newest creation. It features all-wheel drive, a 602hp V10 engine, and a price tag of $240k, or about $4,000 Read More

12 Year Old Boy drives McLaren 650S to 163 MPH

August 31st, 2015

Take a look at this video of a 12-year old boy behind the wheel of the McLaren 650S super car on a closed airstrip for a 1/2 mile racing event. Given the opportunity, I am not sure that a lot of 12-year old kids could (or would) post a speed of 163.5 mph! That is exactly what this young man did in McMinville, Oregon. Some might say this youngster is brave, extremely lucky or not old enough to know the difference. He is lucky to not only have a dad that owns a McLaren 650S, but a dad that will allow him Read More

World’s Fastest Diesel Pickup 172MPH Duramax

July 31st, 2015

This video lets you ride along (and watch) with Owen Powell (driver and chief technician) and the crew at Duramaxtuner as they set a new record for diesel trucks in the Texas Mile. After experiencing some issues with torque converter lockup, the crew gets this stock looking pickup back on track and sets the record on the first day of testing. Day two Owen and the guys continue to fight the rigors associated with running a vehicle at full-throttle for a solid mile, but they manage to pull out a new record pass of 172.2 mph. Great job guys! Here Read More

July 30th, 2015

Nelson Racing Engines (NRE), in conjunction with Brink Racecraft, are building a fifth-generation COPO Camaro designed to tackle the Texas Mile. It boasts 2,500hp and is capable of hitting speeds in the neighborhood of 260 mph. This bad bowtie is powered by a NRE 632-cubic-inch big block Chevy with twin 88-millimeter Mirror-Image turbochargers, 4-into-1 custom fabricated stainless steel turbo exhaust headers, an Alien intake manifold with Anteater snout, Tial wastegates and Tial Q blow-off valves, v-banded inlet and outlet pipes, a specially formed water to air intercooler, and a billet air breather system with integrated step downs. Built-in roof rails Read More

Drag Race: Bugatti Veyron SS vs. Porsche 918 Spyder

June 15th, 2015

From the moment that you hear the 918 driver gleefully exclaim, “Let’s get this #*@!%#@$”, you know that you are in for a hard fought drag race. Face it there are not too many cars that are going to take the hole shot away from a Porsche 918 Spyder. If there is one car that is capable, then it just might be the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport (world record top-speed production car). As expected, the Porsche grabs the initial advantage (at least in the first pass) and holds on until the 1320-foot mark in a desperate grab for victory. The Porsche Read More
