Mustang vs. Mustang – Nitrous Fox Body vs. Twin Turbo Coyote Street Digs

Never mind that we have Ford Mustangs from different generations going head-up on the street (of Mexico) for bragging rights and $1,300 cash – this is a battle between the “old school” nitrous crowd and the nuevo turbo bunch. All we need is a supercharged car and we’d have a drag racing trifecta. These power-adder battles get gritty. Nitrous skeeters say that turbochargers take too long to spool. Turbo spoolers say nitrous is too dangerous and detrimental to engine health. So, where does it all end? On this night, it ends on the street with which of these cars can Read More

Mad Scientist Auto – Compound Turbo Honda S2000 SCT Atlanta

This crazy Honda S2000 build is a rolling testament to one man’s willingness to overcome dreaded turbo lag. With an overwhelming dedication to shorter elapsed times and increased trap speed, this build is the result of this man’s effort to perfect a compound turbocharger setup on a four-cylinder import. Make no mistake, it’s a one-of design. While it is currently running well, it is only going to get better. Take a gander for yourself. Under the hood of this roadster is a billet (aluminum) Honda K24 engine. This line of engines is best known for roller rockers and cast iron Read More

Lamborghini Huracan STO DragTimes Spec * Super Trofeo Omologato

I head up to Lamborghini Broward to walk through the options for the new Huracan STO (Super Trofeo Omologato) and design the ultimate DragTimes track car.

Creamsicle 1956 Chevrolet – 3000+HP Twin Turbo Monster

Never met a car enthusiast who didn’t have a vision of their dream ride. For many, it’s the 1955, 1956 and 1957 Chevrolet coupe models. Arguably, there is no model that more dramatically symbolizes the era of drive-ins, weekend cruises and drag racing as well as these “shoe-box Chevys”. Featured in this video is possibly the most pristine and bodacious example of a time in automotive history when the cars were heavy, the fins were tall, and the chrome was plentiful. Have a look. Built for the grueling event known as Hot Rod Drag Week, with its multiple drag racing Read More

Chevrolet Corvette Z06 vs. Ducati 800 – Street Hits

Late Model Racecraft (LMR) is quietly producing some of the baddest Chevy street cars through high-performance aftermarket modification and tuning. Today, these guys are taking one of their latest project cars out for some real-world tuning. Let’s see what happens when a fellow citizen on a sport bike issues a friendly challenge. The car is a C7 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. The Z06 is powered by a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 capable of producing 650hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. LMR has added a simple bolt-on package that includes a Quartz Performance heat exchanger. It is slightly larger than the factory unit. Read More

Stock Drag Race – 1969 Corvette 427 vs. 1973 Firebird Formula 455

This clip documents what some would call “old school drag racing”. The cars are – believe it or not – some of the most capable of their era. Today, it seems implausible that the most feared of the original muscle cars only made (approximately) half the horsepower produced by some of the hottest modern factory performance coupes, sedans and sport utility vehicles. Nevertheless, it should be quite interesting to see these two top tier muscle cars battle it out on the dragstrip. In the right lane is a prime example of one of the most intimidating muscle cars ever produced. Read More

Underground Racing Built 1300HP Audi R8 V10 Plus – Street Hits

Cipher this riddle for me: What is virtually the same as a Lamborghini Huracan, right down to the V10 engine and monocoque chassis, but costs a hundred grand less? How about an Audi R8 V10 Plus? The R8 and the Huracan are both produced by the Volkswagen Group using the same powertrain and general format. That’s a win/win proposition. Now add a Stage 3 Package (with billet cylinder heads) from Underground Racing (UGR) and you have a genuine street monster. Let’s take a look. First impressions? What can’t be overlooked is that this car looks and sounds amazing, and the Read More

Missing – Calvo Built Dodge Viper ACR

This well produced video opens with Anthony Calvo (owner of Calvo Motorsports) having an absolute cow. Seems that his newly modified Dodge Viper ACR has been stolen from right under his nose, during the roll racing action at FL2K. As it turns out, one of Anthony’s friends (and clients) is playing a sick practical joke on him. Just before the “crime” is reported to the police, the perpetrator returns the Viper to its rightful owner. After some good-natured ribbing and other shenanigans, everything returns to normal and the Calvo Motorsports team is ready to focus their attention back to the Read More
