Toyota Supra vs. BMW Z4 M40i – Drag and Roll Races

July 11th, 2019

Check it out – so, the two cars featured in this video are basically the same. The Z4 has been around for a little while, but the Supra is brand new. The Supra is based on the Z4 platform and it is one of the most eagerly awaited automobiles of the last few decades. Factory equipped with launch control, both these Austrian beauties are equipped with turbocharged inline 6-cylinder engines and 8-speed automatic transmissions. Unfortunately, there is no manual transmission, but one could be offered in later production runs. The Supra is offered only as a hardtop. The Z4 can Read More

Junkyard Dog – Pontiac Firebird on AWD GT-R Chassis

July 10th, 2019

When Gregg (lead technician for the Hoonigan Racing Division) decided to build a retromod of his own, you just knew that it would be something unique and awesome. Well, it does not disappoint. First, Gregg spotted a rusted-out hull from a 1971 Pontiac Trans Am. It had been sitting in a desert (just outside Vegas) for more than a decade. Full of tumbleweeds and sand, the body actually had a river running through it at one time. Gregg pulled the forgotten Thunder Chicken out of the cactus den and took it home to begin its rebirth. Never wanting to blend Read More

Twin Turbo CTS-V vs. 1000HP Supra – Street Hits

July 8th, 2019

Domestic versus Import – it just don’t get no better than that. Everything is on the line when vehicles built within the United States roll out against those built in Japan, Germany, the U.K. and all those other great nations. Tonight’s contest is just such an affair. Breaking all the rules tonight are a pair of heavily modified imports. The first is a Honda S2000 with a turbocharged 2JZ (Toyota) engine. It is capable of producing 1,200hp. Rolling out to his left is a 1,300hp Nissan GT-R, upgraded with a Boost Logic 1300 turbo system. The Honda is fast, but Read More

Street Hits – TT Audi R8 vs. Procharged Corvette Z06

July 4th, 2019

The evenings are getting warmer and that can only mean one thing; it’s time for some roll racing. Tonight, these guys are taking it to the streets (of Mexico) to see who has the fastest car from 60 mph to 150mph. Let’s go! In the first pass, we have an 1,100hp Nissan GT-R (white) rolling against a turbocharged Mustang Fastback. Both cars come out of the hole violently and it remains close throughout. Mustang FTW. Next up is a 1,000hp Toyota Supra against the same Nissan. This time the GT-R is victorious. The same GT-R hooks up with an 1,100hp Read More

7-Second Baltic Toyota Supra

June 28th, 2019

The legendary Baltic Supra; this car is the unicorn of the Toyota enthusiast’s world. Along with factory twin turbos, it embodies every quality they respect in this beloved model. Featured in this video is a pristine example of the Baltic Supra. It is being billed as the fastest version that has maintained its factory running gear. Take a look. Owner, Pedro has been 8-years shaving seconds, and fractions of a second, from his elapsed time and causing trap speeds to torpedo upward in this car. He began with a few bolt-ons and a 13-second quarter-mile pass. Today, the car runs Read More

Stick Shift Struggles – RMRW – Day 4

June 26th, 2019

Looking for adventure? Try day-tripping with the “stick shift class” during a drive-only day of Rocky Mountain Race Week. That’s over 400-miles, on pig trails and back-roads in Nebraska and Colorado; with an elite drag (street) racing car using a manually shifted transmission. Don’t forget – that’s after a few days of abuse on the dragstrip. Buckle up! It’s going to get interesting. The day begins with a ride along in a 1964 Ford Fairlane, complete with bench seat and manual transmission. This is one of the slickest restomods you’ll ever find, and it is pulling an enclosed travel trailer. Read More

700-Miles In – Rocky Mountain Race Week – Day 3

June 21st, 2019

After a long day on the road yesterday, the racers are checking in at the Julesburg Drag Strip in Colorado. This is the oldest operating drag strip in the U.S. Bad news is that the weather is wet. Good news is that the rain is subsiding, and it has cooled things off a bit. Race cars like it cool. Racers are looking a little tattered 700-miles into this excursion. Nevertheless, there are some top-tier competitors gnashing on the bridle to get back on the track. There’s a stunning yellow Mustang that has undergone a terrible struggle. The alternator belt broke Read More

Over the Mountains – Rocky Mountain Race Week 2019

June 19th, 2019

Day One of Rocky Mountain Race Week is over and it’s time for these racers to pack up their cars and drag their gear over the Rocky Mountains. Bound for Jefferson County, Colorado and the Bandimere Speedway (aka Thunder Mountain), these street/strip vehicles will be tested with a 200-mile trek that is almost all uphill. This is certainly the most demanding leg of this 1,000-mile road trip that many competitors claim is the most difficult part of this event. We are not on the road long when vehicles begin to drop like flies. A broken rack-and-pinion bracket, a vapor-locked fuel Read More

Gearhead Gathering – Rocky Mountain Race Week 2019

June 18th, 2019

Welcome to one of the most grueling tests of man and machine to be found anywhere on earth. Drag cars – designed to accelerate quickly over a short distance, reach a maximum speed and suddenly come to a near halt – are charged with travelling to four venues over seven-days. The drag cars must be driven the 1,000-miles (roundtrip) over the Rocky Mountains and back! Bru-tal! It is common to see a tubbed-out muscle car or late model, pulling a travel trailer full of tools and car parts, during Rocky Mountain Race Week. Unfortunately, it’s also pretty common to see Read More

Cootamundra 2JZ King Supra

May 16th, 2019

Drag racing from Down Under – it’s the Motive Runway Thrash – and we’ve got the King of the six-cylinder Supras in this event. This right-hand drive Toyota Supra is a real beauty. Looking for a new challenge? How about racing in the Rear-Wheel Drive Class, in a car that is capable of producing more than 1,100hp; on an abandoned airstrip? After more than 500-competitors have cut the light at this venue, only approximately ten have posted an elapsed time of less than 10-seconds. This is a tough track. The car is a right-hand drive Toyota Supra. It is powered Read More
