While most drag racers prefer a low-slung ride, this fourth-generation Camaro Z28 owner seems to have actually increased the height of his street sleeper with larger tires and wheels. At any rate, the 6-speed manual transmission must make this thing challenging in competitive situations. The degree of body twist exhibited during the hole-shot (dig racing) indicates that the factory suspension may be overloaded with horsepower. Lets face it – that’s the best kind of problem to have. This attractive pony car is well equipped with a late model (2006 Silverado) 5.3-liter engine with a camshaft upgrade, stronger connecting rod bolts, Read More
The Valhalla Cup is a multi-night street racing event that takes place in (of all places) Sweden. There is a bevy of top shelf street racing creations in this video, along with an above average police presence. This little all-wheel drive coupe manages to win the Viking trophy and take home the cash prize – despite some pretty stout competition. This 1996 Audi S2 is powered by a factory 2.2-liter (5-cylinder) engine with a Precision 6466 turbocharger and it has a manual transmission. Horsepower is estimated at 800-ponies. You won’t believe the level of competition in this video. Take a Read More
This car bears the moniker ‘MULLET’ after the owner/driver’s hairstyle. This particular hairstyle is often described as ‘business in the front – party in the back’. Well, this Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera must save the party for the street because on the strip (during this TX2K event) it was all about business. There are multiple 200+ mph passes. As impressive as a stock Superleggera is, you’ll never squeeze 213 mph out of it in the half-mile. This car has been modified with an Underground Racing Twin Turbo Package. The package includes twin billet Precision 62-millimeter turbochargers with Tial wastegates and Read More
We have some video and time slip data from ToTheFloor of the first real world 1/4 mile run by the new McLaren 675LT that just happens to making it’s first pass vs a Lamborghini Huracan at Palm Beach International Raceway. The McLaren 675LT drops some weight from the standard 650S, weighing in at around 3,000 pounds and adds power as well, making 666HP from it’s 3.8L V8 Twin Turbocharged engine. These stats tower over the Huracan’s 3,400 pounds and naturally aspirated 5.2L V10 making 610HP. The only advantage the Huracan has during a 1/4 mile race it’s it’s all wheel Read More
This is street racing at its finest. It features the classic battle between Chevrolet and Ford (sort of – you see, the Mustang is equipped with an LS engine). Nevertheless, this is some awesome heads-up dig racing action that takes place on a beautiful day in an abandoned industrial park, beside a giant retaining wall for excellent sound effects. Multiple camera angles make this an outstanding video; there’s even a ‘down-and-dirty’ angle at the finish line. The Mustang hooks up and jumps out early, carrying the front end down the track virtually the entire distance. All the while, the lead-sled Read More
If you happen to pull up alongside this grocery-getter, you had better be on your best behavior. Why? Because if you are spoiling for a race, then you just might get spanked. This inconspicuous looking sedan has been clocked at 10.34-seconds and 135.5 mph in the 1/4-mile. The Audi RS7 is pretty impressive in factory trim with its 4.0-liter V8. The stock engine produces 553hp and 516 lb.-ft. of torque at 5,700 RPM. It is a 32-valve, dual overhead camshaft, all aluminum (block and cylinder heads), engine with direct fuel injection. This particular car has had a turbocharger upgrade (from Read More
The Lamborghini brand has a rich reputation for sleek and powerful premium sports cars. This version may be the baddest of the heap. The name ‘Aventador’ is taken from a particularly vicious Spanish fighting bull and the ‘SV’ represents Super Veloce or ‘Super Fast’. The ‘LP750’ symbolizes the 741hp made by the 6.5-liter V12 engine and the ‘4’ indicates that this beast is all-wheel driven. This Italian masterpiece is capable of rocketing from 0 to 60 mph in only 2.8-seconds; making it a killer street racing machine. It has a top speed that exceeds 217 mph and costs around $500K.

You seldom see a vintage Toyota Celica making waves on the drag strip. This little car has everything it takes to pull off that classic import look and all the high-performance goodies to make it run like a modern roll racing superstar. It has the shape that drag racers love; narrow and sleek with a low center of gravity but what about horsepower? How about a 2JZ 3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder with a piston upgrade – then add an 8285 turbocharger and presto – you are ready to go racing. The setup is good for 1,000hp. The Speed Warehouse team did Read More
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.
