Stock Porsche 911 GT2 RS – 10-Second Quarter-Mile

October 18th, 2018

Showcased in this brief video is the amazing new Porsche 911 GT2 RS. It is the end-all when it comes to 911 performance as the most capable ever produced. Exciting to me is not a 10-second factory Porsche but the endless modification possibilities that we may see (especially from EKanoo Racing) in the months and years to come. With a sticker price (new) of nearly $300K, the GT2 RS is truly one of the most sophisticated production cars ever made. It is powered by a 3.8-liter twin turbocharged 6-cylinder boxer engine. The engine is situated in the rear of the 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

Now, what we have here is a group of fun loving car enthusiasts taking to the highways of Mexico for some 40 and 50 mph roll racing. Yeah, I hear all you drag racers out there (and I do love my dig racing) but don’t knock it until you’ve tried it. No need to close down the road and no flagman required; these races start with the third drop of an arm extended from a window opening. The onboard cameraman and all the GoPro units catch all the action that is fast and furious – to say the least. Tonight’s Read More

Tesla Mom Car is Track Monster

May 2nd, 2018

Careful that you don’t get spanked by a soccer mom in the quietest compact SUV (with gull-wing doors) that you could ever imagine. The Tesla X is now prowling the streets and it can be challenging to say the least. With all-wheel drive and total electric power, this little grocery-getter comes out of the hole like a bullet. Today, it will be taking on the world in closed track contests that include roll and dig races. Spoiler alert: This thing is deadly from the dig! First up is a motorcycle. It is the legendary 2012 Suzuki Hayabusa with full bolt-ons. Read More

We are all looking forward to seeing what these bad bowties can do but the staging lanes are packed with awesome cars of virtually every variety.

The fine and friendly folks of Puerto Rico really know how to do street racing. Sure, they are a nice bunch of competitors but the cars are nothing short of amazing!

It’s capable of putting down approximately 720hp. The Z06 has undergone a pulley upgrade with some high performance exhaust and it has been performance tuned. It is making 640hp (roughly). Let’s climb into the passenger seat of the M4 and take a Read More

It’s that time of year again, racing fans! When the best of the best (roll and drag) racers in the land converge upon the Royal Purple Raceway in Houston, Texas for TX2K. Even though it’s only day one, the action is already hot and heavy in the quarter-mile roll racing category. Some big time Nissan GT-Rs, Lamborghini Huracans, Audi R8s, and Dodge Vipers have shown up and they are looking to show out on this heavily prepped stretch of hot, flat pavement. That’s right – lots of rubber has been applied to the track and the talking heads are squawking Read More
