A week down under was definitely an experience, as we ran into ridiculous build after ridiculous build! Aussie’s are known to be crazy when it comes to cars, but even this Mazda van took us by surprise! No way did we ever think we’d see it pulling off an 11 Second pass at a drag strip! After this trip down for Motive DVD’s Cootamundra GTR Challenge, and stopping by Sydney Dragway after for the Encore Race, we’ve realized that Aussie’s and Unique go hand in hand! Seems there’s never a dull moment in Austrailia, especially down at the Sydney Dragway!
Our trip down under has been filled with nothing but wild and crazy cars, and it’s not over yet! This may not have been the most radical vehicle we saw this trip, but it’s definitely a combination we didn’t expect! A turbo 4 Cylinder 4G63 engine powers this tiny little rocket down the track through a Lenko Transmission, but to make things REALLY interesting, that pair is combined with Paddle Shifters! Running in the Pro Compact class of Sydney’s Jamboree Drag Event at Sydney Dragway in Austrailia, this ROWDY little rocket went rounds trying to dip into the 6’s!
Out minding his own business at 100mph and a trooper makes him make short work of him!
MONZA vs GODFATHER @ Cash Days DFW – These two Camaro nearly collide down at Cash Days on the street! Street racing on public roads can lead to some very tricky situations when it comes to applying high horsepower to a concrete or asphalt road. Tires spin, cars get sideways and accidents happen. On this particular night, Monza from Street Outlaws lines up with the Godfather in one badass nitrous battle, but things don’t end quite like these racers were expecting. This is one of the closest calls we have ever seen! Don’t worry… we’ll be bringing you the FULL Cash Days race very soon 🙂
Okay, so maybe its not the V6 or I6 motor that Ford produced for Mustangs throughout the years, but it IS in fact a 6cyl motor. Which one? None other than the TB48 – pulled from a Nissan Patrol! These aren’t by any means common to see in Mustang drag cars..but they are definitely BADASS motors! They are capable of over 1700hp, if you strap a big-ass turbo to it that is, and will help propel your rocket ship through the 1/8th mile in well under 5 seconds! Not bad!
Home to the smoothest 1/4 mile track in the world – Qatar Racing Club (QRC)0 where you can have a car built or modified at Al Anabi Performance (AAP) and then tested on one of THE BEST drag strips in the world or on the skid pad just minutes after rolling out of the shop! Watch as we take you behind the scenes, and show you what race luxury is all about! Enclosed drag racer buildings and tents, CCTV video screens showing you live action on the track, and more!
Turbocharged 4, 5, 6-cylinder & rotary powered street cars at the last FAST Friday / King of the Hill event at Calder Park. Footage features Holden, Ford, Nissan, VW, Audi, Toyota and Mazda and more…
One tiny Honda with a GIANT turbo! Our first time seeing a tiny Honda S600, and probably the ONLY time we’ll see one with an 88mm turbo attached to it! This MONSTER showed up to Sydney Australias JAMBOREE event and put on one hell of a show! Easily our favorite car at the event. When something Radical like this comes around the bend and you see a TURBO the size of a small child sticking OUT of the hood of a Tiny car like this, you have to smile! While the owner of this car wasn’t going for Unique by Radical ways, he sure managed to pull off on insanely EYE CATCHING setup! Billowing smoke off the tires down every burnout, this tiny little Honda screams entertainment on every pass as it’s propelled down the 1/4 mile by a 1200hp 2JZ power plant! The Insanity of this setup would likely baffle Honda’s original engineering team for their first edition “Sports Car”, by hearing that this monster has pulled over 190MPH in a 1/4 mile! Competing in Sydney’s Jamboree Sport Compact Drag Race this BADASS little Honda made impressive pass after pass during the Modified 10.5 class at Sydney Dragway, Austrailia!
The NIO EP9 all-electric supercar completed a lap of the Green Hell – the Nurburgring’s formidable Nordschliefe configuration – in a record time of 06:45:90. Having previously set the electric vehicle lap record, the NIO EP9 shaved a further 19.22 seconds off that lap time. This makes the Chinese supercar not only the fastest electric vehicle around the historic circuit, but the fastest production car ever to take the challenge. Watch the full record-breaking Nurburgring onboard lap right here.
By now, we’re sure most of you are familiar BoostedGT and his girlfriend Kayla Morton – a badass racing couple that know how to throw down both on & off the track. Despite their entirely different setups – Kayla with her 2000+ hp Promod, and Boosted with his 393 turbo SBF on small tires, they decided to line up! The wager? Changing their son, Cooper’s dirty diapers for a week – well played guys!
