Hello drag racing enthusiasts and welcome to an all out half-mile drag race between two premium German production sports cars. A few weeks ago, we were treated to a similar video which pitted the Audi R8 V10 against the Audi R8 V10 Plus and, as expected the Plus won out by a very narrow margin. So, what would happen if we lined the Audi R8 V10 up against another similarly equipped German luxury sports coupe? The R8’s competition is no less than the long and sleek Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S. Both cars are built with meticulous care and precision engineering Read More
Mention the words “Viper”, “GT-R”, and “street racing” to me and you will have my undivided attention. This video has all of those things and a whole lot more. Let’s get this (roll racing) party started with a contest between a 1,400whp Dodge Viper and an 8-second Nissan GT-R. The Gen V Viper and the Nisan GT-R are two of the baddest production vehicles to ever roll off an assembly line. Obviously the Viper in the video has undergone some extensive modifications; including a turbo setup. The Snake handles Godzilla easily and moves on to the next victim. You may Read More
Who needs a Z06 or a ZR1? This industrious street racer has taken what was a bare bones C6 and turned it into a street mauler – without breaking the bank. The secret is – as you have ascertained from the title – forced air induction from a pair of massive turbochargers. The Corvette C6 begins life as an interesting enough naturally aspirated sports car. The factory engine was a 6.0-liter LS2 that could catapult the ‘Vette from 0 to 60 mph in 4.2-seconds but it didn’t have the durability that this racer was after. Out comes the car engine Read More
Hello race fans and welcome to the WannaGoFast Texas 1/2-Mile Runway Shootout. Making this contest of top speed even more enjoyable for spectators this weekend is the presence of Eddie Blackwell’s 2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Eddie has come all the way from Huntsville, Alabama with the sole purpose of popping out a new world record top speed for an all-motor car in the 1/2-mile. Eddie makes consistent passes in the 180 mph range all weekend before destroying the 1/2-Mile (Naturally Aspirated) World Record on Sunday afternoon with a best top speed of 186.8771 mph. The Blackwell C5 Z06 is powered Read More
Check out Tesla’s latest software update for the Model X which enables a hidden easter egg feature that is enabled by entering in a “secret” code. After putting in the code, leaving the car and pressing the lock button the key fob, the Tesla Model X puts on quite the show with synchronized flashing lights, music and falcon wing door dances. Check out the video below!
There is something particularly satisfying about building a car that can perform on the street without looking like it. This is called a “street sleeper” and it has been called a motorized version of the pool hustler. This video gives us a look at 10 of the baddest and most surprising street sleepers of 2016. Check out this turbocharged Honda Civic. With a built K20 and a massive turbocharger, this sub compact is knocking off Lamborghinis on the street. The turbo Silverado looks factory but don’t press your luck with this single cab pickup. With a big turbo and a Read More
This video features at least two things that I hold near and dear: street racing and the beautiful state of North Carolina. The Tar Heel State has always held a special place in my heart, with its densely wooded mountains in the west and stunning beaches in the east, but experiencing the Tail of the Dragon (on my modified Harley Davidson Road King bagger) took it to a whole different level. Between that, some wonderful white whiskey (for medicinal purposes and in moderation), and some of the friendliest folks on earth, I can’t help but go back time and time Read More

What would you do for fun if you lived in a place where the roads were flat and straight – as far as the eye could see? Sounds like a street racer’s paradise to me. Why not buy a couple of the most elite factory supercars on the planet and line them up for some dig racing action? That’s what I want for Christmas, Santa!

The Nissan is configured with front-engine and all-wheel drive, while the Lamborghini rocks a mid-engine setup that can be had with standard rear-wheel Read More
