2000HP 1955 Chevy – Big Tire No Prep Racer

August 12th, 2016




This bad looking 1955 Chevrolet must truly strike fear into opposing cars because they just seem to lay down and die on the line. It is a pretty impressive looking hot rod but – darn it, guys – you gotta man up and give it all you got. Honestly, it don’t believe that it is fear. More than likely, it’s the stress and strain of sudden, maximum acceleration combined with the rigors of tremendous trap speeds followed by panic stops. This little red ’55 Chevrolet is packing a 2,000hp punch from a 632 cubic-inch big block and a 3-shot nitrous Read More






Honda Civic Traps 189 MPH at Pikes Peak

August 11th, 2016




The competitors are breaking the 200 mph barrier (on a regular basis) during this week’s 2016 Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack but who expects to see a Honda Civic that can turn 189 mph trap speeds?  The truth is that this is no ordinary Civic – but it is ninety-nine-percent Honda. Start with a run-of-the-mill, 2,300-pound hatchback Honda Civic. Now, snatch that four-cylinder mill out of there and replace it with a ultra smooth 3.5-liter V6 engine from a front wheel drive Honda Odyssey van. Before cramming it back under the hood, install a set of high-performance cylinder heads and camshafts Read More






759HP Lamborghini Centenario Hits the Street

August 10th, 2016




Marking what would be the 100th birthday of founder Ferruccio Lamborghini, the Italian automaker has unveiled the latest in a long line of elite sports cars. It is never likely to see mass production and may even be a one-off proposition. Nevertheless, this 2017 Lamborghini Centenario (pronounced chin-ten-ario) slithered out of its storage bay and through the front gate of an Italian manufacturing facility, just in time for photographers to catch the action. Then it accelerated away and down the street. Whoa! What an exhaust note and this thing looks magnificent! For obvious aesthetic reasons (check out the video) and Read More






Teenage Bugatti Driver Tops 200MPH

August 9th, 2016




Here is a young man with a bright future ahead of him. Despite his tender young age (only 13-years), this lad astonished experts, at the ShiftS3ctor – Revolution.com Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack 2016, with his knowledge of extremely expensive automobiles and his ability to drive them very fast while maintaining his cool. Although Steven is not yet old enough to get a driver’s license, this is his second year competing in this event. This year the family brought out a bevy of exotic beauties, including a Porsche 918, a McLaren 650S, and a Bugatti Veyron. That’s nearly $2.5-million worth of Read More






Underground Lamborghini Street Clash

August 8th, 2016




Now this is my idea of a perfect Sunday drive (until the end). The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and I’m behind the wheel of a beautiful, skillfully modified, elite level street racer. To make this relaxing ride even more enjoyable, two like-minded individuals roll up in their tricked out supercars. Since we’re already in Mexico (where street racing is perfectly legal), my acquaintances and I decide to “blow the soot” out of our machines and engage in a little friendly competition – you bet there’s gonna to be a race! Roll racing is the order of the day and Read More






Tesla Model S P90D Ludicrous runs 10.8 in the 1/4 Mile

August 7th, 2016




About 1 year after Ludicrous mode debuted in the Tesla Model S P90D a Tesla has finally ran 10’s in the 1/4 mile.  A refreshed Tesla Model S P90D Ludicrous driven the The Tesla Racing Channel just ran 10.804 @ 121.99 MPH in the 1/4 Mile at Rockingham Dragway in NC.  With a 60′ time of just 1.57 this Tesla is running 0-60 MPH in the 2.6 range and the 10.8 run was just one of many 10.8x runs for the Tesla that night. This is the first real world documented pass for a Tesla in the 10’s, check out the Read More






Full Electric Dragster Posts 7.24-Second Quarter-Mile

August 5th, 2016




If you think that is a world record for electric vehicles in the 1/4-mile – you are right! Who said that electric vehicles were slow, anyway? The Lonestar EV Racing Team towed the line at the Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown, Texas and quietly (get it – it makes very little sound) posted the best 1/4-mile ET ever for an electric vehicle. As if that isn’t enough, Lonestar also put up the highest trap speed ever (186 mph). This unit resembles a top fuel dragster and is powered by four electric motors that make 8,000 amps combined. It can go Read More






Lamborghini Huracan Race vs Stock Exhaust Comparison

August 5th, 2016




We had some time with a Verde Scandal Huracan over at Lamborghini Broward with the Lamborghini OEM Race exhaust system and did a side by side comparison between the race and stock exhaust systems from a sound perspective.  The race exhaust system is about 10dB louder, sheds some weight and adds some power over the stock system that comes with the car from the factory. We decided to proceed with the install and will be doing some follow up testing on the dyno as well as some VBOX  and 1/4 mile testing at Palm Beach International Raceway.  We’ll also add some pics to this post after Read More






Giant Killer – 670HP Turbo K20 Honda Civic

August 4th, 2016




This little import doesn’t make a lot of noise but it does carry a big stick. Never mind that this Honda looks like it’s missing a few panels, it is wreaking havoc on the streets (of Mexico I’m certain), and taking no prisoners. Here is a dyno test and some street (roll) racing action that will have you wondering just how high this four-banger can rev. The tiny Civic first tangles with a Ferrari 458 and make him look foolish. Next, he jumps on a turbocharged S2000 and a modified GT-R and puts both their lights out, respectfully. Then he Read More






Canadian No Prep Mustang

August 3rd, 2016




This is how it’s done up North, eh? Johnny Quick says that this sweet red Mustang is running a 5.0-liter engine with lots of nitrous but I get the sneaking suspicion that it might be a little bigger than that. Holbrook Racing Engines is known for their work with Ford power-plants and their reputation speaks for itself. Despite the fact that JQ was more than a little apprehensive about giving us the 4-1-1 on his setup, he did indicate that he was hooking up with a four-link rear suspension. Well, attempting to hook up, that is. I don’t think that Read More
