MuscleCar Tuner Showdown: HPE650/SuperSnake/SpeedfactorySRT8
We've compared nearly every combination of modern American muscle cars on
the market. Now it's time for the ultimate showdown - Hennessey's Camaro HPE650 vs Shelby's GT500
Super Snake vs Speedfactory's Challenger SRT8. We head to the Dyno, the test track and the
racetrack to determine which of these tuned pony cars reigns supreme.
Read the story here:
Nissan Skyline: the hacker's supercar.
At number 9, a car so fast, so intimidating, it wasn't allowed on the
streets of North America."
" Skyline, for me, is a dream car. It's like the heartbeat of Japan. And
you know, it's the Ferrari of the Orient."
" Youth market today, you can look at it and go, "That's my dream car.""
" It's been described as a PlayStation on wheels. Normal cars tell their
drivers about oil temperature and battery power. The Nissan Skyline has its
own computer system that tracks and controls everything from g-force to turboBoost to the amount of torque to the front
" This car has the engine management system that controls all of the
sensors, the injectors, everything."
" Banned from US roads, the Skyline has become a much better match for the
racetrack in North America. The few that are imported usually end up in
competitions like this one. It's called drifting."
" Drifting is basically all about car control. It's sliding the car
sideways on a marked course."
" The Skyline is a good drift car because of its ability to channel
enormous power to the rear wheels. The true secret behind the success and
popularity of this car is that it can be hacked into or tuned."
" You can change it according to the rpm."
" First, the car's computer system is hooked up to a laptop. Next, the
factory-installed power and emissions controls are removed."
" In a way, you could consider it hacking."
" Without any governors, tuners can then Boosthorsepower and speed through
a simple entry in their computer. In theory, you could do it to your own
car. The difference with a Skyline is that the engine has so much capacity
it can tolerate increased horsepower without blowing
" You could get a thousand horsepower out of these
engines without blowing them up. So it became the benchmark of all tuner
" It looks very discreet. It's rather like a Japanese 9-to-5 businessman
going home on the Metro in Tokyo. It's that sort of discreet and yet it
punches its real pow. And that's a very powerful, very fast car."
" Besides all that power, the Skyline also has 4- wheel steering and
all-wheel drive, huge assets for controlling a sliding car. If your front
tires are spinning too much, the car's onboard computer transfers energy to
" And then when the engine is the Touring Car series, it was just incre--,
so successful, they had to put a weight handicap on it. It was just a very,
very good car. And more than irritated the [unk] out of everybody was that
it was Japanese and how they built something that just looks ordinary, is
ordinary. It just goes better than anything else the Italians or the Brits
can make. I love it. I think it's brilliant."
" It looked fairly benign from the outside. But it was as fast as a Ferrari
and actually better behaved through the corners."
" Going into the first turn, this car is slow. It needs more power at the
low end or low rpm to make the drift last. Hacking back into the car's
computer system, Steve can effectively alter the characteristics of the
" It doesn't have much knock, so it's way little. So I'm gonna change the
timing on it."
" Rev it?"
" They gave it little bit more timing so it'd have little more power on the
" At one stage, that would have required an engine rebuild. But these days,
it can be done with a few keystrokes on a laptop."
" That was enough to give it little more power. It felt good to her, she
noticed it. I could notice it from outside, so we're still in a safe zone
in the adjustments. We'll see how the next run goes."
" I tell you what, I take my hat off these kids. They do it with their
computers and things, and get these things running sometimes as good as a
Formula One car runs."
" I have done a 20-second perfectly controlled drift in the Skyline and
marveled at the technical prowess. But there's part of me that does not
connect with that car."
" It's a big heavy lump. It's not particularly good looking."
" The drifting is fun to watch. You know, I'm sure it's fun to do, but some
" That was awesome. I'm like, "Wa!" I'm like, "Okay, last run.""
" This Nissan earned the nickname Godzilla for its power and its use of
ultra-high technology is revolutionary for sports cars. But it filled a
niche that appealed only to the true techno head."
