Tesla Model X P90D Ludicrous vs Ferrari F430 Drag and Roll Races

April 24th, 2016

While we’ve seen a bunch of races between the Tesla Model S and various supercars, this is the first we’ve seen of the all new 7 passenger 5,600 pound Model X Tesla SUV racing.  The Model X in the video is a P90D with the optional $10,000 Ludicrous mode going up against a bright red and loud Ferrari F430 with the F1 6 speed transmission. While the power to weight ratio is heavily in the Ferrari’s favor, the monstrous amount of instant torque and all wheel drive in the Tesla play a big role in this race.

900HP MR2 Tames the Arizona Streets

April 22nd, 2016

Now, get this! This Toyota MR2 (mid-engine setup) is equipped with a Honda drivetrain. That includes a K20 2.0-liter engine that has been fitted with dart racing sleeves, JE Pistons, Manley valve train components, a stock cylinder head (camshaft upgrade), and a 66-millimeter turbo making between 25 and 36-pounds of boost. The combination is capable of churning out over 900hp and it is shifted using a sequential transmission. Right out of the gate, this Toyota dusts a 700hp Evo, then rubs up against a GXR1000 sportbike. The Suzuki ain’t having none of it and whips the MR2 handily. Then he Read More

Blue Destiny – 1800HP Celica

April 20th, 2016

No, Blue Destiny is not the name of a new ladies fragrance. It is the name of an obviously talented race team campaigning a top-tier Celica that bears the same name. The Blue Destiny Racing Team has put together one whale of a car. It looks awesome and you simply must hear this thing. It’s powered by a JDM 3.2-liter inline 6-cylinder 2JZGTE engine with Pro Mod Gen II turbochargers. The combination is good for 1,800hp.

Striving for traction and track position are some of the hurdles that No-Prep racers must clear.

If you enjoy highly-competitive, head-to-head drag racing with limited classifications, then No Prep is right for you.

April 18th, 2016

What do you get when you cram a big V8 (with a pair of turbochargers) into a tiny import coupe? Well, the most notable thing is likely to be a tremendous boost in your power-to-weight ratio. This video takes us to TX2K16 and brings us into contact with a 2002 Lexus IS300 that is purpose-built for crushing the 1/4-mile. Dedicated Motorsports (out of Pflugerville, Texas) has put together this concoction that is being billed as the ‘Fastest GM 6-Speed’.

You may be familiar with the bright red ’55 1.0 Chevrolet No Prep machine. Now, check out the new and improved version ’55 2.0. The 2.0 has undergone a weight reduction of around a half-ton – that puts it at about 2,600-pounds – with the same basic color scheme and same hard-charging attitude.

Lamborghini Huracan Twin Turbo Bolt-on Kit runs 9 Flat in the 1/4 Mile

April 15th, 2016

Lamborghini Huracans have been moving very “quick” lately as the competition heats up between aftermarket tuners adding twin turbo systems to the Huracan’s 5.2L V10 with times dropping into the 8’s and then in to the 7’s in the 1/4 mile.   So far the Huracans we’ve seen have had pretty big money invested into built motors and upgraded DCT transmissions to the tune of well over $100,000. The Huracan submission we just got in was built by @F_Performance and takes a different approach with just the addition of a twin turbo setup and tuning running on a stock motor and transmission Read More

Street Racing – Blown BMW M3 vs. Mustangs

April 14th, 2016

Three wide street racing on the streets of ‘Old Mexico’ has got to be pretty rare but throw in a supercharged BMW and you are approaching unicorn status. The Beamer locks horns with a Ford Mustang GT500 in the first heat and fares surprisingly well. Next, you have the M3, the GT500, and a blown Mustang Boss in 3-wide action. Take a look for yourself! The BMW is sporting a VF Engineering 650 Kit that gets him up around 650hp. The GT500 comes from the factory with a supercharger and a performance exhaust, a cold-air intake, and other various aftermarket Read More

Exotic Street Racing – McLaren 675LT vs. Ferrari 488GTB

April 13th, 2016

This is roll racing action that borders on the fringe of the supernatural! Should I have the good fortune to cross paths with even one of these supercars during my meager commute, I must stop and thank my lucky stars. To witness both these luxurious racers at the same time is enough to take one’s breath away. Take a gander at this high-tone action. Is there no substitute for cubic-inches? Hmm, let’s see. The McLaren is a British by-product that utilizes a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 to irk out 666hp and 516 lb.-ft. of torque. It can blast from 0 to 60 Read More
