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






1400HP Rusty Camaro Takes Roll Racing Top Speed

August 2nd, 2016




They say that it ain’t how you look but what you have under the hood. Never have those words held more truth than with Eric Yost’s ‘rusted out’ classic Camaro. This thing certainly has that ‘distressed’ look that decorators find so appealing these days. Eric not only rolls out in the Outlaw class but also dips his toe in the roll racing event; posting a top speed for the event (174.89 mph) . The old Camaro is running a professionally built 352 cubic-inch engine being force fed air by a 91-millimeter turbocharger. When all the chickens are in the hen Read More






Tesla Gigafactory Behind the Scenes Video Tour and Picture Gallery

August 2nd, 2016




When Tesla invites you out to tour their multi-billion dollar Gigafactory and see Elon Musk present his plan for world wide electrification, you go, so I booked a flight to the “Biggest Little City”, aka Reno, Nevada to get an inside look at the newly operational Gigafactory.  The factory is actually about 20 miles outside of Reno in a small town call Sparks that will soon be growing with up to 10,000 Tesla workers set to move in over the next couple of years as the factory expands to it’s full capacity of up t0 10 Million square feet, making Read More






Special Delivery – McLaren 675LT Spyder

August 1st, 2016




How friggin’ lucky is this guy? Today Shmee is taking special delivery of his 2016 McLaren 675LT Spyder in (what the new owner has deemed) MSO Orion Purple. Can you even imagine taking delivery of such an automobile? Seems silly to think that I believed myself special when I took delivery of a new Harley Davidson Street Glide (due to a broken ankle – that’s another story) but this is far and above anything that I can imagine. The 675LT Spyder is a very unique automobile with it’s retractable roof and roadster style seating. Inside and out, this thing is awesome. There Read More






Tesla Dominates Quarter-Mile Street Class

July 29th, 2016




So, what do you think? Are we ready to concede the 1/4-mile to the electrics? Speaking just for me – I say heck no – but it is fun to watch these ultra reliable cars run unbelievably consistent times, over and over again. Personally, you can give me a gas burner with a supercharger or a couple of turbos every time but when it comes to index racing, it’s difficult to compete with a car that performs exactly the same on every pass. Helping the Tesla to achieve these consistent 1/4-mile passes is an all-wheel drivetrain and a network of Read More






Quarter-Mile Pass – Lamborghini vs. Z06

July 28th, 2016




Advanced Modern Performance (Dallas, Texas) has built one heckuva Z06 Corvette. It’s so capable that it can claim the title of world’s fastest Z06 in the 1/4-mile with a 9.3-second pass. The question is; can it withstand this Underground Racing prepared Lamborghini? Let’s have a look. The Lambo seems to take the early advantage as the ‘Vette lags back coming out of the hole. Somehow, the Z06 comes back and lays down a 9.5-second pass and wins by 1/3-of a second. The Lambo had the fastest trap speed, posting a 173.58 to the Corvette’s 148.22. AMP is doing a tremendous Read More

Street Race – Corvette vs. Shelby GT500

July 27th, 2016




It just doesn’t get much better than this; here is a classic street battle between Ford and Chevy. The action is coming at you from an industrial park – on a dead-end thoroughfare. The ‘Vette makes a great first impression as it comes on strong, looking like a beast during warm-ups. The Mustang comes out of the hole with cold tires and walks the track to win the first pass. In the second pass, it seems that the Chevy has made some tuning changes and defeats the Shelby handily. The only thing missing is a third and final pass for Read More






Street Racing – Z06 vs. Porsche 911 and More

July 26th, 2016




BK34 has taken it to the streets (down in Mexico, of course) in his modified Corvette Z06. This bodacious bowtie is equipped with a 6.2-liter supercharger engine from the factory. Add some strategically placed bolt-ons, a camshaft upgrade, and some upgraded cylinder heads and you have the advertised 580whp. He should have his hands full tonight with a Porshe 911 and a Toyota Supra. The ‘Yota has a Precision 6765 turbo and is claiming 650hp. The Porsche is running some very pricey aftermarket add-ons and claiming 540hp at the rear wheels. This is highly-competitive, 3-wide roll racing. Let’s take a Read More
