In February 2014, Hot Rod Magazine invited the Big Red Camaro out to face off against Chevrolet's new 2014 Z-28 Camaro. Big Red has never been one to back down from a challenge and to pit the Generation 1 Camaro against the new Generation 5 was too good an opportunity to pass up. The Big Red team braved one of the worst ice storms on record and made the trip out to the Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama to attend the challenge. With the freezing temperatures came poor track conditions, and the new Z/28 had a huge advantage with all its modern traction control systems - Big Red had her work…Continue
In an unexpected turn of events, the Camaro Z/28's engineers noticed that the tires rotated at least a full 360 degrees on the rims during a single lap on the test track. Brembo's carbon-ceramic brake rotors can do that to you.
Chevy went for the track oriented Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires and carbon-ceramic Brembo rotors to control the 7.0 LS7's 505 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque. The only problem was that the achieved 1.5 g in deceleration force also happened to be enough to slip the rims inside the tires, all the way around according to the chalk line put next to the valve stem at the beginning of a test lap.…Continue
Joel Highsmith built a Dodge Challenger with the goal of breaking the 200 mph barrier at events like the Mojave Mile. Now that dream is shattered because the car has been stolen. Let's see if we can find it.
According to Allpar and multiple concerned people who have emailed us about the case, the Challenger was taken around 7 p.m. Sunday in the parking lot of Spankin Time Motorsports in San Bernadino, California, which is located at 160 South D Street. The car was in a 39-foot black and red enclosed trailer, pictured here as well, which was believed to have been towed off by…Continue

He recently sent his engine to Pro Line to be freshened for the new set of twin-turbos. We look forward to seeing the turbocharged Murder Nova in action next season!…Continue
After several years of fever for "barn find" cars — those automotive jewels supposedly tucked away for decades in forgotten corners — the bar for an impressive discovery has reached an all-time high. Between the several TV shows and websites devoted to hidden classics, collectors have grown jaded and suspicious of many. Here's one example that's broken through the clamor to capture a growing attention from the ardent fans of late '60s Ford Mustangs.
As listed on eBay by a Wisconsin car dealer, this 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302 was supposedly pulled from a New Hampshire barn after being parked for nearly 40 years. The dealer says he's only the third owner, and has the paperwork to prove it; the first two owners having driven the Acapulco Blue 'Stang only 43,002 miles. According to their posting, the second driver had a mild run-in with a fire hydrant in 1971 and subsequently lost his license; the Mustang was parked…Continue
A sense of style goes hand-in-hand with drag racing, but it certainly isn’t at the top of the list of importance. Most of the cars you see at the track are purpose-built machines that only have a single goal, to go really fast. After that, comes the looks part, as some racers do like to have a race car that has show quality attributes that can be anything from killer paint to wheels and even a certain stance. Then there’s the breed of gearheads like Jason “Mullet” Steven that build cars that take performance and looks to a whole new level.
Jason recently reset the Ford GT 1/4-mile record with his Hennessy Performance-built GT1000 that has a bit of extra spice that helps it rip down the 1320 in the 9.30′s at over 150 MPH.
The Ford GT is based on the iconic Ford GT40 from the 1960s, which Ford commissioned for the sole purpose of smacking Ferrari in the mouth at LeMans. The Ford GT was brought back in 2004 in a way that captured the spirit of the…Continue
