Eighties Drag Race – Ferrari Testarossa vs. Lamborghini Countach

Taking it old school, we join legendary British car enthusiasts James May and Richard Hammond (The Grand Tour) as they conjure up a drag race between a pair of eighties era supercars. Shall we go out to the track and find these two old blokes as they prepare to get their race on in these vintage sports cars? As these two codgers tow the line, they consider the potential for catastrophic failure to this pair of classic cars (from a sudden start/drag race). After some brief calculations, it is determined that a rolling start is preferred. Smart move. The 1982 Read More

1100HP Diesel Chevy C-10 Shortbed Takes on Drag Week

As the Mecca of drag racing enthusiasts, Hot Rod Drag Week attracts some of the most capable straight-line machines in the world. This video focuses on some of those vehicles. Day 4 of Drag Week finds us looking at a diesel powered 1980 Chevrolet C-10 shortbed pickup with a pair of small turbochargers. This truck is rolling coal like it’s going out of style and leaving a ton of rubber on the track during his burnouts. The sawed-off truck cuts a clean light and totes the front out past the tree. He leaves a thick cloud of black smoke behind Read More

Old School Drag Racing – 1970 GTO Judge vs. 1969 Dodge Super Bee

Here come the judge. This video documents a drag race between two bone stock classic muscle cars. Both these cars – with their selected options – were relatively rare. The Pontiac is 1/627 and the Dodge is 1/661. Shall we have a closer look at these vintage steeds? The 1969.5 Dodge Super Bee A12 was equipped with a 440 cubic-inch motor fed by a trio of 2-barrel carbs. Maximum output was modestly rated at 390HP and 490 lb.-ft. of torque. The massive V8 is mated to a 3-speed Torqueflite automatic transmission and the final drive gears in the rear end Read More

1400HP Nissan GT-R vs. 1370HP Ford Mustang – Drag Race

Here we go again! This is a time-honored rivalry between a sports car from Japan and some Detroit muscle from the good old USA. Both these cars are twin turbocharged, and both are capable of making approximately 1400WHP. That’s where the similarities end. For instance, one is a V8 and the other is a V6. One is all-wheel drive and the other is rear-wheel drive. One is a purpose-built roll racer and the other is a drag car. With all their differences, this should be an interesting series of races. Let’s begin with the import. The 2017 Nissan GT-R is Read More

Half-Mile Airstrip Attack – 1700HP Porsche Goes 220 MPH

Meet the pros from AIM Performance. These guys are to Porsche performance what a pig is to barbecue. Everything. Today they are working the kinks out of a colleague’s 911 before they ship it home. Three characteristics standout about this Porsche. It’s right-hand drive. It’s all-wheel drive. It’s awfully fast. Of course, the Porsche 911 is a rear-engine all-wheel drive machine. This one has been upgraded (stroked) from a 3.8-liter to a 4.1-liter engine. The motor is fully built and enhanced with a pair of Precision 6870 turbochargers. The gearbox is a Hewland sequential and the car is owned by Read More

Challenger Hellcat Redeye vs Mustang GT500 – Street Hits

It’s about to get real up in here! We have a Dodge Challenger Hellcat Widebody (with a few mods) taking on a Ford Mustang GT500 in some roll racing hits on the streets (of Mexico). Let’s get to it. The Widebody Redeye comes equipped with a 797hp 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V8. Car owner Nate has added a Legmaker cold air intake and a set of super-sticky Nitto NT 555 R2 tires on the rear. He has also deleted the rear seat and today he’s looking to whip up on a Mustang. On the other hand, the mustang GT500 is powered Read More

All-Motor 1969 Chevrolet Camaro – 716HP 572 C.I.D. Big Block

Big thanks to Shawn at Autotopia for bringing us this outstanding garage-built 1969 Camaro. For car owner Omar this has been a labor of love. He regularly drives the car on the street and takes it to the drag strip occasionally. This is a special build and Omar is going to explain why. The center piece is the massive 572 cubic-inch engine (cast iron block with aluminum cylinder heads). Exhaust is Hooker Super Competition headers running into Magnaflow 3-inch pipes/mufflers. It dumps in front of the rear axles. The brake setup is Wilwood disc on all four corners. The tire/wheel Read More
