Big Turbo Honda S2000 vs. Ford Mustang GT500 – 60 to 160 Street Hits

Oh, it’s go-time on the streets of Mexico! A pair of purpose-built roll racing machines are set to throwdown on the big road in a contest all out acceleration and speed. Hold on to your hat, friends. It’s about to get breezy in here. In lane one is the 2002 Honda S2000 convertible. This thing only weighs 2,800-pounds, and man has he got power. Under the hood is a professionally built 2.0-liter 4-cylinder Honda mill with a massive Precision 6466 turbocharger. He’s running a Haltech controller tuned to burn e85 fuel. With all the aftermarket bolt-ons, the S2000 is claiming Read More

Top Gear – Battle to Determine the World’s Best Supercar

This is a special treat from the gloomy shores of dreary old England. It’s a road and track battle between two of the baddest supercars on the planet. The cars involved in this clash are the McLaren 750S and the Ferrari 296 GTB. We will roll out with (Top Gear Head of Car Testing) Ollie Marriage and (Contributing Editor) Jethro Bovingdon for some hairpin turns and high revving straights in a grudge match of sorts. You see, one of these steeds is a hybrid monster and the other is pure internal combustion. Catch a grip and hang on tight. This Read More

ProCharged Camaro vs. Dodge Charger Hellcat – 50 to 150 Street Hits

It’s on like Donkey-Kong tonight as a pair of brand-loyal street racers prepare to duke it out on the highway. These machines are modified for performance and filled with ethanol-based fuel. These cars are the cream-of-the-crop when it comes to roll racing on the streets – of Mexico. The widebody Dodge Charger Hellcat is possibly the most capable sedan ever produced. In factory condition it features a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 that can produce nearly 800hp (on race gas). The Charger seen in this video has been modified with an aftermarket supercharger pulley to increase boost. It has also been Read More

Twin Turbo LS Swapped Mustang vs. Nissan GT-R – Drag Race

The crazies at Hoonigan are at it again. This time, they’re coming from the Texas Motorplex for a Longhorn style This vs That. It’s a contest that cobbles together the best from the U.S. in competition with a monster from the Land of the Rising Sun. This will be a carefully orchestrated series of drag races on a closed course – No Prep style. In lime green is the 2016 Nissan GT-R. An all-wheel drive coupe, the GT-R (known around the world as Godzilla) is powered by a twin turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 punched out and stroked to 4.1-liters. The turbochargers Read More

Porsche 911 Turbo S vs. C7 Magnuson Corvette Z06 – Street Hits

Tonight, the roll racing action will be from 50 to 150 mph, and it will be on the streets (of Mexico). Each competitor has studiously prepared their respective top-tier high-performance machines in order to win these specific types of races. Both racers will be accompanied by a single passenger. These passengers will undoubtedly be white-knuckling the grab handles (where available). On the right is the 2022 Porsche 911 Turbo S. At a base price of more than $200K, the all-wheel drive 911 Turbo S features a twin turbocharged flat 6 engine with an aluminum block and heads. In stock trim, Read More

Old School Muscle – Blown 1941 Studebaker Gasser

This one is for all the old school gearheads who can remember finding the Amoco station with the “white gas” for their hot rods. These are the guys and gals who know what is meant by a “gasser”. It’s also for the youngbloods who need to know some drag racing history. Made popular during the 1950s and 1960s, the gasser could be recognized by the front suspension that was raised above the stock height. Raising the front suspension was supposed to offset the typical weight distribution issues often encountered under heavy acceleration. The gasser would also have open exhaust that Read More

SXNH8 Twin Turbo Ford F-150 vs. Heads Cam Chevy Camaro LT1 – Street Hits

We are jumping back out there on the interstate (in Mexico) this evening for more roll racing hijinks. Come join the action as two modified machines lock horns in a form of racing that begins where the speed limit ends. Known as SXNH8 (Section Hate), the all-wheel drive Ford F-150 is lowered and outfitted with drag slicks on all four corners. In stock trim, the 5.0-liter V8 under the hood is not going to blow anybody’s skirt up. However, if you bolt on a twin turbo kit with an air-to-air intercooler and all the accoutrement, you’ve got a neck-snapping street Read More

The Roadster Shop has done it again. Thanks to Shawn (from Autotopia LA) for bringing us this rolling masterpiece. Let’s join Jeremy Gerber (RS) and our man Shawn for a detailed look at the ins-and-outs of this banging Chevy. First of all, this car is part of the Roadster Shop Survivor Series. In short, that implies that the entire build is more about function than about fit and finish. This is a driver’s car meant to get the job done on a daily basis. First impressions: Yes, that bulge in the hood is custom fabricated sheet metal. The owner requested Read More
