Count to six. That’s how long it takes for AMS Performance’s monstrosity of a Nissan GT-R to run the quarter mile. That’s not just quick, it’s terrifying.
A thousand feet down the track, the supercharger on Sean Belt’s nitro-burning iron big block Chevy exploded. Here’s as good a view of that explosion as you’re gonna get.
I have never been more jealous of high school shop than I am now. Look at this badass S-10, complete with an LS swap and a 400-shot nitrous setup, built entirely by high school kids.
Last Friday, Leah Pritchett broke the Top Fuel national time record with a ludicrously quick 3.658-second pass at the NHRA Arizona Nationals, reaching a ridiculous 329.34 mph in that short time. Here’s everything she and her team had to remember to get out of the way to prepare for such a run.
Winning is great and all, but what you really want is to win with some style.
Everybody has their own idiosyncratic set of criteria when it comes to buying a car. I have a weird space-utilization fetish, for example. If you’re someone who’s really into width, specifically tire width, your next car purchase is already decided. That’s because the upcoming Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will have…
Few car nerds get as pissed about a digression from tradition as Corvette fans, which is why I absolutely adore this pristine 1968 ‘Vette with a Cummins 6BT diesel swap. Also, it rips.
2016 couldn’t end on a quiet note. No, it had to go ahead and give us another solid candidate for Save of the Year.
Don’t wait until Sunday! Sunday! Sunday! to watch this epic retro highlight reel of monster trucks, insane dragsters, dirt bikes, chaos, destruction and all that is right with the world. It’s so rad that I just grew a Miami Vice ‘stache just thinking about it.
The best look we have at the potential of Faraday Future’s first car is a series of drag races the company showed off beating a Bentley Bentayga, Ferrari 488 and Tesla Model X. But there’s something that’s weird about the drag races themselves.
Truly, we are living in an extraordinary time for nutjob junkyard engineering. As proof, look at this otherwise junky Malaise Era Camaro with a 6.0-liter LS V8 out of a truck with four turbos pulled off Ford Ecoboost engines. It is a monster.
This is the burnout equivalent of a mic drop. No burnout will ever top a burnout that actually burns. With flames. On fire!
I’m just going to start this off with the admission that, sometimes, I’m completely baffled by people. This is one of those times. A guy with a Porsche 911 Turbo S posted delightedly on a forum about how he finally ran a quarter-mile in the 9s. He had the slip to prove it and everything! Well, everything except the…
This has to be one of the most incredible code brown moments I’ve seen in a long time.
The National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) has recently let go of five members of their broadcast crew in retaliation for union activities, the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) alleges in a National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) complaint. IATSE has also filed for the NLRB to oversee a…
Holy crap, look at this turbodiesel-swapped Trabant 601 Deluxe. I don’t know if I’m listening to a car or an army of angry tractors bulldozing my house.
Remember that time Terry Gross from NPR’s Fresh Air got banned from drag racing?
“Well, that didn’t go as planned.” Jay from Real Street says as he hopes his 1500 horsepower beast of a drag-racing Supra isn’t on fire in this video. Fortunately, driver Jay is calm incarnate and delivers the best rolling commentary of a fire ever. “Are you on fire right now?” Jay asks. “I hope you’re not on fire.”
Weeks ago a fellow known as Nacho was driving a twin turbocharged LSX-powered Chevy Camaro on a closed runway at close to 200 mph. Something caught, or maybe something let go, and then all hell broke loose. As did the car.
