Sickest Acura on the Planet

November 6th, 2018

No, you have not flipped your wig! This is a left-hand drive, JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) Acura Integra that has been radically modified aesthetically and mechanically. The color is Porsche Orange but the attitude is cutting edge. Under the hood is a 2.4-liter (K24) bottom-end (from a Honda Element) with a K20R cylinder head. It has a Precision 62-millimeter turbocharger with a Golden Eagle intake manifold. Every electrical connector and wiring harness on this car is redone with heavy-duty in mind. Car owner, Ryan Basserri is the owner of Rywire so, innovative wiring is his stock in trade and it Read More

This clip enables us to ride along with Toyota Supra owner/operator Yosdany in his 1,019whp creation. So, climb into the passenger seat, buckle in, and enjoy this POV perspective. This beast of a Supra is about to rip up the streets (of Mexico). Yosdany’a Supra has a stock bottom-end 2JZ inline 6-cylinder Toyota engine. A full ensemble of bolt-ons, performance exhaust, a Precision 7685 turbocharger, and tuning by Lance Toyomoto give this import a major bump in horsepower.

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

Porsche 997 Turbo S vs. Corvette ZR1 – Street Hits

May 12th, 2018

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

April 5th, 2018

Greetings drag racing fans and welcome to the Cecil County Dragway for an epic battle between two variants of the big, bad ZR1 ‘Vette. 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. There is a bad looking vintage Mopar, a Porsche, numerous Mustangs (of all types), and even a McLaren.
