Launch Control in the Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4

In this video we go through the steps to use launch control or thrust mode in the Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4.  The Huracan is really the first Lamborghini that you can really use launch control without worrying about the transmission, clutch or other wear type items.  With the older Gallardos and current Aventadors and their single clutch setups their launches are just brutal and really make you feel bad about abusing the car. This isn’t the case with the Huracan and it’s 7 speed dual clutch transmission along with variable all wheel drive system that can push just the right amount of power Read More

Corvette Z06 with Rear Mount Turbo

This is another turbocharged Z06 Corvette – with a unique twist. Instead of the run-of-the-mill front mounted, flow-through turbo, this ‘Vette has the turbo mounted in the rear. This design helps to remove some heat from the engine compartment. The turbocharger is connected to the exhaust near the outlets and an air-to-water intercooler is mounted in the trunk, almost directly above the turbocharger. A second heat-exchanger is located in front of the radiator. This car is still in the developmental stages and already running in the 9-second range. With a few more events under their belt, this team figures to Read More

Nissan Drone Does 0 to 60 mph in 1.3-Seconds

Today Nissan introduces us to their new high-performance drone. Its sole purpose is to track and film the 2017 Nissan GT-R during high-speed maneuvers but today it will race against the GT-R. This impressive drone is built by Tornado XBlades Racing and piloted by James Bowles (2015 British National Drone Racing Champ). The race will take place on the 1/2-mile track at Silverstone (U.K.). The GT-R top speed is an electronically controlled 195 mph. It should leave the drone in the dust (with its top speed of just 114 mph) but curves and hills must be taken into account. This Read More

No Prep Gangster – Fox Body Mustang

You have probably heard of Boosted Solutions (out of Chestertown, Indiana). They campaign The Fugitive. It is a 3,500hp Chevy powered Mustang that kills at major No Prep events. This video brings us the newest project that the guys at Boosted Solutions are campaigning in the Gangster Class at King of the Streets in Chicago. No Prep is the hottest ticket in drag racing right now. This Fox Body Mustang is equipped with a 118-millimeter turbocharger. It don’t come out of the hole as fast as some but it manages to get down the 1320 in good time – good Read More

Corvette Z06 vs. Old School Turbo Nova

This clip shows us a classic battle between a Gen III Nova and a late model Corvette Z06. Besting a Z06 in the 1/4-mile is a monumental task for any overweight muscle car and serious bolt-on modifications (to the ‘Vette) just serve to make matters worse. To even up the competition, the ’73 Nova is equipped with a late model Chevy LS engine and a turbocharger. It looks awesome with that low slung stance that is so typical of this era of Novas. It also has a full roll cage and a TH400 automatic transmission. There’s another close race between the Read More

McLaren 650S vs Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 Drag Racing

Check out these all out drag and roll races between the latest of what Lamborghini and McLaren have to offer with the Huracan taking on the 650S.   The Huracan has the advantage off the line with it’s all wheel drive compared the the 650S and it’s rear wheel drive, but the McLaren has more power and less weight which should make it faster on the top end. 2016 Lamborghini Huracan 2015 McLaren 650S Spyder Price as Tested $278,000 $353,000 Engine 5.2L V10; 602HP 3.8L V8 Twin Turbo: 641HP Drivetrain All Wheel Drive Rear Wheel Drive Weight 3,500 pounds 3,200 pounds Read More

240 MPH Half-Mile World Record

The world record for top speed in the standing half-mile has fallen. The driver who shattered the 238.6 mph mark (set last year by K.C. Howeth in Texas) Saturday is no rookie. Gidi Chamdi is the man-of-the-hour. He once held the record at 234 mph and I’ll give you odds that he won’t let his new “high-water” mark stand very long. Gidi’s car is a Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera. It has a built 5.2-liter V10 engine and an Underground Racing X twin turbo package. The setup is good for more than 2,300hp. Despite the massive power, this Lambo remains very streetable Read More

Tesla Model X P90D is more powerful than the Model S P90D

When we first tested the new Model X P90D with Ludicrous mode at the drag strip running an amazing 11.6 @ 116 MPH at Palm Beach International Raceway we were quite surprised how quick and fast it was compared with the Model S P90D Ludicrous running 11.3 @ 116 MPH in a direct heads up race. Given the extra 600+ pounds the Model X has to carry around over the Model S combined with Tesla’s own spec that both have the same motors, same battery and make the same power (532 HP motor power), the numbers just didn’t add up.  While Read More
