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

1100WHP Turbo Stroked Dodge Charger – Standing Half-Mile

What, has this guy lost his mind? He put a manual transmission in this Dodge Charger sedan. As if that weren’t bad enough, he also threw a big turbo right out in the grille. It’s builds like this that keep things interesting. Come on and let’s have a closer look. So, the HEMI V8 is on the 6.4-liter platform, but it is stroked out to 428 cubic-inches. The bottom end and cylinder heads are fully built using the best components available. The massive turbocharger is a Precision 88-millimeter, and the transmission is a 6-speed manual with a dual-disc clutch. Maximum Read More

2017 Holden Commodore – 815HP Street Sleeper

You gotta love a car that looks grandma and runs like a gazelle. This 2017 Holden Commodore (Chevrolet SS) provides the perfect platform to build a street stunner. Let’s kick the tires on this sedan and see what makes it stand out from the crowd. The 2017 Commodore rolled off the assembly line with a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine rated at 415hp and 415 lb.-ft. of torque. The big V8 in this unit is mated to a 6-speed Tremec manual transmission. Car owner Joe has built on the stock foundation by sending the supercharger out for some expert porting at Read More
