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

Street Science – SSTX GT-R vs Kong Ported Corvette ZR1

June 29th, 2021

There’s little that compares with warm summer nights and roll racing on a semi-deserted stretch of interstate (down Mexico way). That’s what we have going on tonight when four sultans of the street science come to grips for some intense street hits under the stars. Have a look. First, we have a contest between a twin turbo Fox Body (small block Ford engine) and a late model Mustang with a Coyote motor.

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

That’s precisely the situation the V8Bait crew found themselves in during last weekend’s event. It finally came down to a situation in which the engine had to be swapped in about one hour. Can these guys get it done? Watch. Fresh off the trailer, the STi posted an 8.44 @ 172.85 mph. The car was loose out of the hole and Read More

May 11th, 2021

At a curb weight of only 2,800-pounds, the 2016 Subaru BRZ is considered a sub-compact sports car. Featured in this video is the BRZ of a humble guy named Mark. He will be treating us to a ride down south of the border for some street racing action. The Subaru BRZ was equipped with a four-cylinder (2.0-liter of 2.4-liter) naturally aspirated engine. The tiny car only made 205hp from the factory. This just didn’t work for Mark. So, after experimenting with various supercharger setups, he selected a JDL turbocharger arrangement that is currently blowing his proverbial skirt up. The 2.0-liter Read More
