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!

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
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
Check out this contest of speed that begins as a 60 mph rolling race and morphs into a Snake show. With advertised horsepower ratings being a little “flexible” where street racers are concerned, it should come as no surprise when a 632HP car overcomes a 750HP car on an apparently deserted stretch of highway. That is the case in this video from That Racing Channel. The Camaro appears to gain the early edge but the Viper is having none of it; coming back to take the victory in the end. We neither condone or encourage racing on public streets. The Read More
Put your safety belts on and place your seat backs in the upright position. These familiar words signify time for take-off and this Porsche hypercar is certainly about to take-off. The driver is chasing a 1140-horsepower Koenigsegg Agera R, to no avail I might add, and the videographer is strapped into the passenger seat giving us an incredible view. The Porsche 918 Spyder utilizes a 4.6-liter internal combustion engine and a series of electric motors to generate 887-horsepower. It can rocket from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.2-seconds with an estimated top speed of 214 mph. As you can Read More
Here is a good heads up one mile drag race between a McLaren MP4-12C vs a Ford GT modified with a pulley and tune. The Ford GT hangs in there pretty well with the latest and greatest technology of the MP4-12C only losing ground while shifting it’s manual transmission vs the MP4-12C’s super fast dual clutch.
