Here's some pretty dramatic video from the Lights Out 7 races at South Georgia Motorsports Park. That's Dave Bowman in the far lane in a twin turbo Mustang and Kyle Huettel in the near lane driving his blown Corvette.

Recently, I had the opportunity to do a build series for Circle Track magazine taking a look at how well a modern LS7 would work as a Super Dirt Late Model engine (turns out, not too bad). As part of the build we used an RHS LS7 heads and block, Lunati crank and connecting rods, Mahle…

Ride Along as this Guy Drives Right Off a Cliff

Who knows why this guy was running a dash cam in his SUV, but we're sure glad he did! Watch as he gets on it a little too hard coming out of a tunnel just ahead of a turn and winds up driving right off a cliff. We guarantee the first time you see this…

Twin Turbo Wreaks Havoc on the Dyno

Nelson Racing Engines regularly produces some of the most powerful street engines ever seen--and they also make some pretty cool dyno videos. This bad boy is a twin-turbo big block running E85 producing over 2,100 horsepower on 632 cubic inches. It makes a great sound, but what's fun in this video is watching the exhaust headers…

Incredible Stunts on the Wall of Death

Here's a video where the obligatory "don't try this at home" label probably isn't even necessary. We don't have much background information on this clip. We do know it was shot in Bengal, India, where someone has built this "Wall of Death." These showmen are performing stunts on this vertigo-inducing barrel in what looks like…

Ford’s GT Supercar Hits the Track

We've drooled over the photos of Ford's new GT supercar long enough. Now we've got video of the race car version testing on the track. The twin-turbo V6 providing the motivation certainly doesn't have the usual V8 sound, but it's definitely something we could get used to.
