Turbo Supra Takes On a Yamaha R1M in a Street Race

November 13th, 2015

It hasn’t been all that many years ago that jumping on a street bike in a four-wheeler was considered absurd. With the development of today’s turbochargers, nitrous systems, and superchargers (or the combination thereof), it is nothing for a car to walk the dog on even a highly modified motorcycle. The question is: Can this Real Street built Toyota Supra get the bulge on an enhanced Yamaha R1M? Take a look at this video and find out for yourself. The sport bike has undergone some cylinder head work. It has adjustable camshaft sprockets, an Akrapovic exhaust, and a custom tuner. Read More

So you want to rip up the track in a sedan? Try this one on for size. How about an all-wheel drive 2010 Ford Taurus SHO? This bad boy holds the world’s record for the EcoBoost platform (in the 1/4-mile drag racing segment). It laid down an 11.5-second pass at 119.49 mph in November 2015. This video shows us the professionals at Livernois Motorsports as they go about their business putting together a bulletproof 3.5-liter EcoBoost with proprietary four bolt main caps and cylinder head studs. This thing is line bored, balanced, and blue printed to be extremely smooth and Read More

Turbo-Diesel Rat Rod Running 6 Nitrous Bottles

November 11th, 2015

This video comes to you from SEMA 2015. It features a wild creation from the gang at Premier Performance Products Distribution in Rexburg, Idaho -and I do mean a Wild One! It all begins with a Generation II Dodge Ram 2WD pickup truck chassis with a 12-valve Cummins diesel engine. From there it takes a really wild turn and ends up as this beast that you have just got to wrap your eyeballs around. The cab is pre-war and the cockpit is state-of-the-art techno-redneck. The monster power plant is built by Industrial Injection and it has a couple of ATS Read More

2016 Shelby GT350 – A Big Orange Middle Finger to Mediocrity

November 6th, 2015

If you have been brainwashed into thinking that tiny turbochargers, paddle shifters, and retractable spoilers are the epitome of today’s emotional driving experience, then allow me to introduce you to the 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 (it is bright orange with black rally stripes). You can pick this thing up from your local dealership (for around $57k) on Saturday afternoon and tear up the track the same night. The GT350 comes “out of the box” with a DOHC 5.2-liter V8 engine and a six-speed manual gearbox (no paddle shifters on this one). It is good for 526hp and 429-lb.-ft. of Read More

Cadillac Style – CTS-V Posts a 10-Second Quarter-Mile

November 5th, 2015

Cadillac with drag radials or not, if you sport a personalized tag plate the reads “IWALKU” then you better have something under the hood. As you can see in this video, this guy has it in spades. If you have never seen the likes of a Cadillac dogging out Camaros and Mustangs, then you’ll definitely want to see his clip. IWALKU lays down three sub 11-second passes (10.52 @ 131, 10.54 @ 130, and 10.57 @ 130) in one night of dig racing at the local track – that ain’t too shabby by any standards. The CTS-V’s running a stock Read More

Trailer Trash LS Malibu Runs 8.90 Quarter-Mile

November 4th, 2015

Building a drag car on a budget ain’t pretty. Building a turbocharged drag car on a budget can get downright ugly. This Malibu may be ugly but the time slips keep getting prettier with each pass. Sure the paint job is a mess, the wheels are mismatched, and the interior is ratty but this Chevy managed to dive down into the eights, putting up an 8.90-second 1/4-mile pass at 150.8 mph. The engine is a stock Chevrolet 5.3-liter LS with a stock crankshaft and cylinder heads. It does have upgraded connecting rods, wrist pins, and pistons. A Borg Warner 88-millimeter Read More

Stolen Lambo vs Fatt Cat’s Challenger

November 3rd, 2015

When street racing, it pays to “Drive it like you stole it”, as the old saying goes. In this clip it is alleged that the driver of the 2015 Lamborghini Huracan may have actually stole it. He is an automobile transporter out on the town and looking for a thrill. If you only have one shot at seeing how you measure up in a street race, then you’ll want to head down south of the border (I didn’t know that there was a city in Mexico called Houston, hmmm) and look up a hustler named Fatt Cat. Chances are that Read More

Turbo Mustang vs Supercharged Vette Street Racing

November 2nd, 2015

This street battle not only encompasses a time honored tradition between Ford AND Chevy but also concerns players from two distinctively different forced air induction camps. The popular Ford Mustang Boss edition is equipped with a bullet proof stock 5.0-liter V8 engine with upgraded valvetrain components and an EDP 7675 turbocharger. The Corvette uses a supercharger in conjunction with a stock 6.2-liter V8 with upgraded cylinder heads, camshaft, and a set of long tube exhaust headers. The Ford claims 900hp and the Vette boasts 800hp. This looks like 60 mph roll racing and the Chevy gets the jump on the Read More
