Tesla Plaid Takes on TT Lambo, Camaro ZL1 and McLaren 720S – Track Rolls

October 4th, 2021

Please excuse me for taking a minute to get over this all-electric sedan whipping everyone at the dragstrip – well, not everyone but you see what I’m saying. A pair of Plaid sedans are featured in this clip. Neither have undergone any form of weight reduction and both are on stock Pirelli tires. The blue Plaid draws an 800hp Camaro ZL1 for the first (roll) race. The Camaro gets the initial jump before the Tesla “swooshes” around him to take the win. The result is a top speed of 153 mph (161 mph just past the finish line) for the Read More

Alpha 1200 Audi R8 vs. 300HP Kawasaki Ninja H2 – Half-Mile Roll

October 1st, 2021

The venue is the Indy Airstrip Attack 2021. Looking for some action, Kyle (1320 Video) showed up in his AMS built 1300hp Audi R8 V10 Plus. Action is precisely what Kyle found. A stretched-out Ninja H2 was quick to take the bait and the two competitors agreed upon a roll race on this half-mile course. The Audi R8 shares a platform with the Lamborghini Huracan. Both cars are powered by a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine. AMS Performance added their Alpha 1200 twin turbo kit to Kyle’s car. After all the bells and whistles were bolted into place and the Read More

Eighties Drag Race – Ferrari Testarossa vs. Lamborghini Countach

September 21st, 2021

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

Ice Cream Cruise – 1320 Video vs Sheepy Race and Underground Racing

September 2nd, 2021

So, Kyle (1320 Video) turned up at the Ice Cream Cruise in Iowa (I-29 Dragway/Raceway Park of the Midlands) with his AMS built twin turbo Audi R8 V10 Plus. He was looking to do some roll racing and see how his Audi stacked up against serious competition from Sheepy Race and Underground Racing. Fortunately for Kyle, his buddy Jeremy was in attendance with his Sheepy Race built Lamborghini Huracan Performante. These two cars are almost identical from a performance standpoint. Jeremy has a slight advantage in weight with Kyle’s car tipping the scale approximately 600-pounds heavier than Jeremy’s. There are Read More

August 27th, 2021

The Ricky Bobby GT-R is on the edge of the knife when it comes to top speed. It is purpose built for roll racing and half-mile racing events.

With a 200hp shot of nitrous, this Nissan has the potential to produce nearly 3,000hp. Piloted by Terence Cox, the Ricky Bobby GT-R is one of the favorites to win the Unlimited Class. Fresh off the trailer, Terrence rolls into the left lane against a Cicio car. Terence puts Read More

Half-Mile Airstrip Attack – 200 MPH Drag Racing

August 17th, 2021

Ever wonder what it would be like to drag race through an Indiana corn field? Well, wonder no more. This video takes through the Semi-Final round of the 2021 Indy Airstrip Attack (presented by Indiana Corn Marketing Council and First Farmers Bank & Trust). Some of the baddest half-milers in the Midwest have shown up to claim their share of fame and fortune. Let’s drop-in on this crucial round of half-mile drag racing action. Early in the day we have a 2017 Volkswagen Golf R (1100hp) getting ready to tackle a 2011 BMW 328i (800hp). This is a battle of Read More

Pack of McLaren Racers Take on Texas Streets

July 22nd, 2021

Summer is here and the time is right for racing in the streets! That ain’t the way the song goes but it sure makes for some interesting evenings. Let’s get down to Texas (Mexico) and see what all these McLarens are buzzing about. The first McLaren to take the interstate is rolling against a twin turbocharged Dodge Viper. That’s creating a ton of horsepower when you add twin turbos to an already potent 8.4-liter V10. The Viper gets the early advantage but can’t hold the McLaren off through the trap. McLaren FTW. Next, the TT Viper takes on a pair Read More

Harley Davidson Road King Nitrous Drag Bike vs. 1500HP Audi R8

July 15th, 2021

This one is a bit of a swerve, but I love my Harley Davidson Baggers and most especially my Road King. So, here goes – this is going to be a series of drag and roll races between a couple of highly modified vehicles. One has two wheels and the other has four. The Audi R8 V10 Plus is an all-wheel drive supercar that shares a platform with the Lamborghini Huracan. Same engine and transmission, same chassis, everything is identical except the sheet metal. The (stock) 2017 R8 is powered by a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine. The 3,800-pound R8 Read More

1300HP Audi R8 – World Record Contender

July 5th, 2021

The backdrop is the Hail Mary Derby at Maryland International Raceway. The focus is on established yoga teacher and mother Amie Palo and her 1300hp Audi R8 V10 Plus. Although Amie has relatively no track time, she has developed into a competitive drag racer in a single season. Amie has progressed to the extent that she is running consistent 8-second quarter-mile passes and being considered a serious contender to capture the stock motor Audi R8 (quarter-mile) world record in the very near future. Built and maintained by T1 Race Development, the Palo R8 is a twin turbocharged masterpiece with a Read More

2000+HP AMS Built Lamborghini Huracan – World’s Fastest?

June 22nd, 2021

Greetings drag racing fans! Say hello to Jordan Martin and his 7-Second Lamborghini Huracan drag car. At the heart of this record setting Huracan is an AMS built 5.2-liter V10 engine with a pair of Garret turbochargers. Other notables include an AMS billet intake manifold, JRZ suspension components and Mickey Thompson tires. Jordan has taken this Lambo into the 7-second range before, but he hopes to move even closer to the elusive sixes this weekend during the Hail Mary Derby. An initial pass of 7.70 @ 180 mph raises plenty of eyebrows among the spectators, but Jordan is unimpressed. He’s Read More
