Jeep Wrangler 4xe Tears Up the Track

July 22nd, 2021

So, this guy Brandon Haneline showed up at the Mooresville Dragway (North Carolina) in a bone stock Jeep Wrangler 4xe (4 by e) and stole the show. Nobody was expecting this generic looking (and sounding) Jeep to come out of the hole with such violence. This cat stole the holeshot on everyone he raced. Check it out. The Wrangler 4xe is equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder internal combustion engine and a pair of electric motors powered by a lithium-ion battery. The combination is capable of producing 375hp.

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

HEMI Power – 1200HP All-Motor Plymouth Road Runner

July 16th, 2021

Beep! Beep! Be on the lookout for the Pro Street style Road Runner known as BRDFLEW. With a menacing silhouette and the stance of a disgruntled bully, this Plymouth is packing some serious ponies – without the aid of forced air induction. When the custom roll-off front clip is lifted, Shawn from Autotopia discovers that BRDFLEW is powered by an all-aluminum Keith Black 572 cubic-inch HEMI engine. The engine alone is capable of producing 950hp. Add a 200hp shot of nitrous and you have a street car that is absolutely mind numbing. The transmission is a 3-speed Torqueflite and the 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
