It’s normal to see these big block nitrous monsters show up at no prep events and struggle to get traction. They spin and slide; darting from lane to lane in a futile effort to make the car hook-up. Well, this rear-wheel drive G-Body not only gets a fair amount of traction, it manages to carry the front wheels through the first half of the 1320 and remain in the correct lane. Running in the Big Tire Class, this Cutlass is powered by a 632-cubic inch big block engine with a 250-shot of nitrous and a methanol injection (to keep intake Read More
Check out this all-wheel drive 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 putting down an 8-second 1/4-mile at 167.41 mph. This is one SUV that you probably don’t want to roll off the line against. With a built (by Mark Hedrick) 6.1-liter HEMI and a top-mounted (Stage6 Motorsports) Precision ProMod 94-millimeter turbocharger, this Mopar is making 1300hp and getting down the 1320 with the best of them. This video brings us a small dose of shop tuning and setup; followed by a single pass at the drag strip. In addition to the engine modifications and the turbo, this Jeep has a custom Read More
We offer up a $100 bill if they can grab it before the Tesla Model S gets to 60 MPH.
This is street (roll) racing between a modified ‘Vette and a souped-up Cadillac. Times were, when you get your sports car modified to your liking and hit the streets for some roll racing action, the last thing that you would expect is for a sedan to give you a run for your money. Well, time passes and things change; today’s high-powered sedans are pretty potent from the factory and they are easily modified. Despite the fact that this race is between a top-tier sports coupe and a luxury sedan, it is one of the closest street contests that I have Read More
While dropping the 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale off for an oil change and yearly service over at Lamborghini Broward we came across a matching 2016 Huracan in Rosso Mars on the way out. Since the 2016 Bullfest Miami Rally we’ve been considering making a change from the Super Trofeo to a Huracan or Aventador but the numbers didn’t make sense, until now. After a few conversations, some test drives in the Huracan and a couple of days over the weekend to think about it (pros -cons below) we ended up trading in the Super Trofeo for the Huracan.

This is some insane roll racing street action from down “Old Mexico” way. The action begins at 60 mph and heats way up from there. The feature car of this short clip is a stout twin turbocharged Mustang Cobra. The Snake takes on a turbocharged C5 Corvette and a 750whp Mitsubishi Evolution. Get an eyeful for yourself. The SillyBilly Terminator Cobra is equipped with a 281-cubic-inch engine and a pair of turbochargers “turned about half-way up.” Horsepower output is unknown but, as you can see from the video, it’s pretty substantial. The C5 ‘Vette is powered by a 408-cubic-inch small block Read More
This is the world’s fastest Gen V Dodge Viper. It showed up at Heaven’s Landing Airstrip in Clayton, Georgia for the WannaGoFast7 event. Not only did this beautiful Gen V Viper bust the 200 mph barrier; it did so using 19-inch tires. This means that two world records were set in this video: Best top speed (200.5 mph) in the half-mile by a Gen V Viper and best top speed by a car with 19-inch tires in the half-mile. That’s a pretty good weekend’s work. This car has a built 8.4-liter V10 engine with a twin turbocharger setup. The combination Read More
This is the stuff that civil wars are fought over; which one is faster – the Lamborghini Huracan or the Ferrari 488GTB? Mama Mia! Let’s take a look and see. The Ferrari is making 661hp (at an amazing 8,000 RPM) using a 3.9-liter V8 engine. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3-seconds, has an adaptive suspension system, and a price tag of nearly $250K. In the other lane; the (all-wheel drive) Lambo is churning out 602hp with a 5.2-liter V10 engine. It has a 7-speed dual-clutch automated transmission, the capacity to accelerate from 0 to 60 Read More
