Tesla Model X P100D Ludicrous sets World Record Racing a Lamborghini Aventador SV Drag Racing

We got a call a few weeks ago from a Lamborghini Aventador SV owner (also a Tesla owner) asking to setup a race between his SV and a Model S P100D to see how they compare during some drag races.  Interestingly enough we also had been contacted by an X P100D owner that wanted to try his at the track as well.  After a few of calls we brought out both a Model X and Model S P100D out to to make it happen at Palm Beach International Raceway. Since there haven’t been many Model Xs running at the drag Read More

Hayabusa Powered Mini – Street Hits

If ever there were a perfect car in which to install a quick-revving, slip-shifting motorcycle engine, it would have to be this vintage (1983) Mini. With the Mini weighing in at only approximately 1,000-pounds and, with the understanding that winning street races is all about power-to-weight ratio, the 240hp Hayabusa engine and transmission seem to be an excellent addition to this boxy British import. The right-hand drive steering system has been relocated to the left side and the interior is all business with a roll cage and some racing buckets. This is one clean little car (it’s tiny). As you Read More

Square-Nose Chevy C10 Dominates Cash Days

Greetings race fans and welcome to the Midwest Slow Car Cash Days. This is an event for competitors with 800hp or less. Please say hello to our feature truck. It is a gutted, tubbed, and caged Chevrolet C10 pickup with a small block engine and a nitrous injection. While there is nothing fancy about this C10, with its matte military themed paint scheme and standard steel wheels, it is consistent and quick coming out of the hole. The first contest in this single elimination event pits a great looking Nova SS against the C10. The pickup hooks up well and Read More

Street Digs – APR VW Golf R Slaughters

You gotta’ love it when the underdog pulls out the victory against all odds. That is the feeling I get watching this Volkswagen Golf R as it lines up against the likes of the mighty Cadillac CTS-V and some top shelf Bavarian monsters. The VW Golf R is an all-out performance version of the popular Golf GTi. It rolls off the assembly line with a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine that is capable of producing 292hp. The R package yields sport tuned suspension, all-wheel drive, 18-inch wheels, and optional 6-speed automatic transmission with launch control. With APR turbocharger upgrades, you Read More

1600HP CTS-V Kills the Half-Mile

Leather upholstery (door panels), air conditioning, 1,600whp, and 200+ mph; it don’t get any better than that! This four-door Cadillac is on a mission to embarrass every GT-R, Supra, Camaro, Corvette, and Mustang that tows the line against it. It is well prepared by Hot Rod Dynamics with a lot of help from a 7.0-liter mill built by Tim Lynch of LynchMob Racing. It is a twin turbo car with a PTC transmission. This car has run as fast as 212 mph in the half-mile. The owner/operator says that he would be happy with a 300 mph pass but realistically Read More

Classic Style – Supercar Performance

This one-of-a-kind 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS is loaded with everything it takes to make it look vintage and run better than new! Thee-years in the making, there is not a single inch of this muscle car that has not been upgraded. From the electric door entry handles to the custom fabricated stainless-steel dash to the aluminum console to the space-age instrumentation and navigation to the front and rear camera systems, everything inside this car reeks of innovation. The hand-crafted seats are awesome, too. This is not your average old clumsy Chevelle either. Despite having race-ready suspension from Detroit Speed, the Read More

The Kitchen LS RX7 Tames the Track

Once upon a time… some drag strip clowns told Brandi Sharp (she is extra sharp – by the way) to “get back in the kitchen”. Well, Brandi liked that idea so much that she brought her kitchen to the track and now she whips their tails with it. As you have already figured out – Brandi’s kitchen is an LS (6.0-liter) powered Mazda RX7. The engine has forged connecting rods and pistons and a large shot (300hp) of nitrous. The little coupe is making around 700hp and Brandi really knows how to use it. Brandi is a competitive No-Prep racer Read More
