Drag Week 2016 – Aussie Invasion

September 14th, 2016




It’s time for one of the biggest amateur drag racing events in the USA and the Australian teams are here is force. Hot Rod Drag Week is going strong in the Midwest and the 2016 field consists of nearly 350 entrants, including a barrage of hard-charging Australian lads and lassies, looking to test their skills and have a lot of fun. Drag Week events mean racing on four tracks in five days accompanied by a road trip of about a thousand miles. The catch is that the drag cars must be driven between racetrack destinations. That’s a lot of wear Read More






Porsche vs. Lamborghini – Rolling Airstrip Attack

September 14th, 2016




It just don’t get any better than this! Here is a video that captures some of the baddest exotic supercars on the planet; locked in on the finish line in a battle of outright acceleration to top speed. If you love ultra expensive performance autos, then the cockpit view (from the front seat of a Porsche 991 Turbo S Mk II) will have you white-knuckling the proverbial dash all the way to the end and the setting for the airstrip is absolutely pristine. So, what is left to vex my troubled brow? How about a third pass – because one-and-one Read More






1200HP R34 Skyline GT-R

September 10th, 2016




I think I’ll call this color Emerald Chrome. It’s absolutely stunning on this radically modified Nissan R35 Skyline GT-R, but never mind the aesthetics; this coupe is built to tame the track. When the team at Motive DVD (from the United Kingdom, I presume) was asked to build this monster, they set out with a purpose; to dominate the street car class at Powercruise events around the globe. While Motive stopped short of revealing all their design secrets, they did cover the basics and treat us to a grand video ride-along. To make this car competitive and unique, these Brits Read More






Canadian Street Racing – Toronto Roll and Dig

September 9th, 2016




So, this is how they do it in the Great White North, eh? It seems like they really know how to get to it when it comes to high caliber street racing. All the heavy hitters showed up in Toronto – and on short notice, too. There is the usual onslaught of Camaros and Corvettes but there are also a couple of unusual rides, including an LS powered RX-7, a Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG, and a BMW S1000 RR motorcycle (modified). The RX-7 is running a 5.3-liter Chevy small block LS motor with a camshaft upgrade, a Borg Warner S480 turbocharger Read More






Porsche vs Ferrari vs McLaren – Drag Race to 200 MPH

September 7th, 2016




This clip brings us a drag race (to 200 mph) between a Porsche 918 Spyder, a Ferrari LaFerrari, and a McLaren P1. It is skillfully produced with pre-race car setup included. The sound of these three automotive masterpieces posturing at the starting line is enough to make your ears want to dance. The 918 manages to produce 874hp and 944 lb-ft. of torque and it’s riding on Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. All that power comes from a 4.6-liter internal combustion V8 engine and a trio of lithium ion battery powered electric motors. The LaFerrari is equipped with a Read More






Chi-Town Heat – Roll Racing on the Street

September 6th, 2016




If there is one thing that they can do in Chi-town, it’s throw-down on the streets. Naturally, when we got a chance to check out what kind of roll racing Chicago (Mexico) has to offer; we loaded up our wagons and hit the dusty trail. To say the least, we were not disappointed. On hand was a 2016 BMW X5 M (yes, an SUV) powered by a 4.4-liter twin turbocharged V8 with aftermarket bolt-ons and a software upgrade. It’s good for about 800whp. There’s a 2003 Porsche 911 Turbo that has a modified intercooler, exhaust headers, and high performance mufflers. Read More






Tesla Water Challenge in the Model S P90D Ludicrous

September 6th, 2016




This video demonstrates why there is no drinking or eating policy in the Tesla Model S P90D with Ludicrous.  I offered up a break in the policy and cash if they can ride in the car without spilling.  Take a look at what happens below!  






Texas vs Oklahoma – Street Racing Event

September 5th, 2016




The animosity between Longhorns and Sooners has been brewing for longer than automobiles have been in production. This street racing event brings all this ill will to a head on the hot asphalt of a deserted industrial park (and throws in lovely razorback to boot). Welcome drag racing fans to Cash Days 2016. You know that you are in for a treat when you see the likes of the Murder Nova, the Mistress Chevy II, the Kamikaze El Camino, the Big Baller Coupe Mustang, the Chevy II known as Cornbread, and the Dominator Dodge Dart on hand for head-to-head, single elimination, Read More






Tin Can Mitsubishi Evo – Stock ECM World Record

September 3rd, 2016




Who knew that there was an event focused exclusively on Diamond Star Motors (DSM) held annually at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio? Seems like someone should have, since the DSM Shootout has been going on for the last 24-years. This event grows bigger and bigger with each passing year. This is due in large part to the popularity of the Mitsubishi Evolution. Despite the Evo coming from the factory with a 2.2-liter four-cylinder engine, this car is easily modified. Many top-shelf aftermarket manufacturers are producing high performance parts for these cars that are practical, comfortable, and have the potential Read More






Kayla Morton’s Procharged Mustang

September 2nd, 2016




You might say that the hottest ticket in drag racing today is No Prep. Well, it gets even hotter when you add a pretty blonde pilot who looks like she just stepped off the stage of the local beauty pageant. Having said that, make no mistake, Kayla Morton is more than just a pretty face. She interviews like a crew chief and (as you’ll see in the video) when things go awry (and they will – check Murphy’s Law), she is more than capable of taking charge of her race car and avoiding catastrophe. This is one chick who knows Read More
