    If you pay attention to the world of high performance cars you know there are spectacularly fast twin turbo Lamborghini Huracans and Nissan GT-R's. Tuners pushing the limits in competition is great for enthusiasts and potential customers alike. Underground Racing is known for their absurdly quick Stage X twin turbo Huracans. They do not play second fiddle to anyone. Just look at how hard they went at Heffner until they basically forced him to concede to UGR being the top dog on the Huracan platform. UGR's push to hold all the records and beat all challengers leads to them being a bit too sensitive and perhaps going overboard while at the same time constantly pushing the platform. Remember when they tried to scrub the internet from all details of one of their cars going up in flames? They take things so far as to not even want to admit sometimes things can go wrong. That mentality is in play here with Ross Fowler's UGR Stage X Huracan going up against Tony Palo and his T1 Racing Development GT-R. The GT-R is making well over 2500 horsepower. They had this car over 2200 to the wheels back in 2015. They are doing well over 2300 now and this is just what they choose to show: Ok, so both cars are freaking fast and both tuners are at the top of their game. So what happened? Well, the cars ran and made it to the finals of the King of the Streets at the Texas Invitational. When they ran, T1 got up to speed and the video evidence speaks for itself. UGR slingshotted past which is essentially cheating: It's a bullshit move. UGR got a running start while T1 was trying to match and sitting at speed before the start. Everyone seems to agree on this and even the event organizers agreed that a re-run was necessary. That was fine until UGR took their trophy and went home rather than race again: UGR gets the win but a lot of people lost a lot of respect for this type of behavior. We all have egos but at the end of the day this is not Formula 1. Just run the cars in the spirit of the competition. There is no shame in losing in this environment and certainly not in the finals. T1's feelings on the subject: This is UGR's response: Trying to line up cars fairly like this from a roll is not easy. It takes some work from both parties. If the GT-R needs to be at a higher speed initially to build boost the Huracan should work with it to get an even start and fair race rather than manipulate circumstances into its favor. This is systemic of a larger problem at events like this where people will inflate their start speed or start early to get a jump. The proper solution is to remove the variables causing the issue and take it out of the driver's hands as an even start is simply impossible. Especially when someone else will do whatever is necessary to win even if that means cheating. The fact remains UGR did not do a re-run and went home because they knew they had the slower car according to trap speeds from the event. There is no excuse in the world that will change that fact. * BoostAddict.com reached out for comment from Underground Racing and Tony Palo with no response from either. It seems this is a sore subject.

    The 2.9 liter Whipple twin screw supercharger is very popular in the Domestic world and also in the Mercedes-AMG M156 market. Weistec for example utilizes Whipple twin screw blowers in their Stage III+ M156 applications which break into the 9's on the stock internals. It will be interesting to see if the third generation supercharger will be utilized although the new casing may pose some fitment issues. Regardless, check out these results on a Mustang GT with no changes other than moving to the new blower: That is an impressive pickup in power and torque from 3000 rpm on. Not only is the Gen 3 making more power it is also running up to 80 degrees cooler. It is much more efficient. The Gen 3 features new rotors with precision, robotically sprayed, conformal PTFE coating that adapts to the application and clearances needed. The rotors also feature a profile change, along with tighter tolerances that minimize power consumption and leakage. The updated rotor housing features revised port timing and bearing shape for increased rotor filling, along with a new, angled rib pattern for a more aggressive look.

    W204 C65 AMG Black Series 4Matic? Yes, you read that correctly. BenzBoost teased this car a year ago while final development and tuning was wrapped up. Getting a build like this done and dialed in takes a bit of time and the owner wanted to have some fun with a sleeper before the word got out. Whoops. It is hard to not write about something extraordinary like this. Just swapping in an M279 V12 into the W204 chassis alone is incredible (look at that fab work!) but they also added 4Matic all wheel drive on top. This is truly a one of a kind build and as the saying goes if you have to ask how much it costs you can not afford it. Weistec did not leave the M279 stock by any means. The V12 receives a sleeved block, forged internals, CNC ported heads, a new dual throttle body intake manifold, and custom turbochargers. It makes over 1000 horsepower at the wheels but best of luck to anyone trying to get a dynograph. Maybe the owner will release a graph at some point. For now, just enjoy one of, if not the outright baddest, C-Class AMG's on Earth.

    You probably know this Huracan already as the owner went through his Dime Racing horror story and VF-Engineering ended up sorting out the car and supercharging it. Now, you already know the McLaren 720S is a beast in stock form. The Huracan owner meets up with a 720S owner and basically there is a lot of annoying talking before and after they botch run after run. Just run the damn cars. Nobody wants to waste twelve minutes on worthless chatter. They line the cars up from a stop and the Huracan gets a lead on the rear wheel drive 720S before quickly getting off the gas. This certainly makes sense as the Huracan is all wheel drive and the TVS blower provides instant torque. With how quickly the Huracan gets off the gas we do not see much of a race. They go from a roll next and the 720S jumps slightly but then gets off the gas only for the Huracan to get on the gas. Is this the first time these guys have ever raced a car before? They try again and the 720S looks to be in the wrong gear or getting on the gas late. Just do three honks and go people. Also, you have GoPro mounts. WTF are you holding a camera for while racing? This is garbage. They run on busy city streets and the Huracan gets off the gas early once the 720S actually gets going. There is no real performance comparison and where is the supposed data that was going to be recorded? If you seriously think your Huracan is faster do a real highway roll instead of putting out misleading crap like this. Fail.

    I unloaded my fbo 335 last summer by accident (got 5k over book). Bought a lightly used 2012 f150 lariat 4x4 over the winter. First time ever owning a truck....not for me. I need to get back into something fast again. New or used doesn't matter, would like to keep the mileage low though. Been looking at late model used M cars, but not totally sold on BMW. I really want something that has roughly 500whp stock or can get their very easily. I'm open to almost anything. I would be trading the truck in on it unless i find something like an ls swapped rx7 or the like for 20k. HELP ME FIND MY HAPPY PLACE!!!

    These are two of the hottest drop tops on the market. MotorTrend decided to compare them in sunny California (which is a popular place for these cars) but they opted for the standard Turbo instead of the S. The R8 Spyder does not come as a V10 Plus model. On paper, this should be close between the two. The 5.2 liter naturally aspirated V10 powered R8 has 540 horsepower but 'only' 398 lb-ft of torque. The 911 Turbo on the other hand has 486 lb-ft of torque from its 3.8 liter twin turbo flat-6 and the same 540 horsepower. Base pricing is similar between the two but the R8 certainly has more exotic styling for the money. Not that the 911 Turbo looks bad. The 991.2 generation is arguably the best looking 911 iteration since the 993. The bottom line is they both turn heads. The 911 has one major advantage though when comparing performance. It weighs 300 pounds less. That is very significant although a person who just wants to be seen likely will not care. So what about the straightline performance? 911: 11.0 @ 125.0 R8: 11.5 @ 122.7 Acceleration is one part but which is more fun to drive? They criticize the R8's transmission a bit. However, they are enamored with the handling and ride. The sound of the motor is no contest. Overall, the R8 seems to be the car that offers a bit more emotion despite being heavier and slower. How do they do on the racetrack? The 911 Turbo eats it alive. It isn't even close. The laptime for the 911 Turbo is barely off a 2015 GT3. Incredible. Now, most cabrio buyers will not care about the performance advantage for the Porsche. Those who do put a premium on performance should get the 911 Turbo. Either way, these are two awesome topless sports cars.

    The BMW F82 M4 CS is essentially a model that sits between the M4 Competition Package and the hardcore M4 GTS. The limited edition model gets a bump to 460 horsepower from its S55 inline-6 motor along with some lightweight pieces. The 9A2B6 engine in the 911 GTS is rated at 450 horsepower. This is essentially the same 3.0 liter flat-6 as the Carrera and Carrera S but with larger turbochargers and different software. Which of these two is really making more power? Well, we would need to dyno both of them to know for sure. The best we can provide is a 991.2 Carrera and standard F82 M4 overlay. What we do know for sure is the 991.2 GTS is roughly 200 pounds lighter and it has the majority of that weight over the rear tires. Despite these two cars both being rear wheel drive the GTS simply puts its power down far more easily. This race is not even a contest. Showing them going from a roll or trap speeds is necessary here and MotorSport Magazine does not provide either because they're either lazy or incompetent. If you have an F80 M3 or F82 M4 and think you will have an easy time with a 991.2 at a light, think again.

    Started to get back in to mountain biking about a year ago. Living in Colorado there are so many fantastic trails - it starts to become addictive. Currently riding a 2016 Specialized Stumpjumper 29er. Upgraded to x1 drivetrain with a Kashima coated Fox Float with an Evol can (best upgrade Iíve done). Starting to vaguely look at getting a new bike - thinking about building up an Evil Following or Santa Cruz Tallboy. Likely pick up a 2017 model in the Spring. Anyone else ride?

    On paper the new W213 Mercedes-AMG E63 S is the most powerful car of this trio. Mercedes-AMG rates the new E63 S at 603 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque. Now, depending on whose horsepower rating standard you use the RS7 Performance edition puts out up to 605 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. The power is basically a wash but Mercedes-AMG is getting much more torque out of their 4.0 liter V8 for whatever reason. The Nissan GT-R of course has a 3.8 liter V6 and while it is also all wheel drive like its challengers it has a dual clutch transmission. It is also the lightest of the three. It is surprisingly close but the GT-R pulls all three on the top end. No trap speeds as usual (wtf?) but the GT-R wins with the E63 S close in second.

    Was definitely happy with my results. This was for my stage one. I’m currently stage 2 catless dp and water meth pre turbo injection. I would say I’m around 640ish. I’ll dyno again soon. Sorry I couldn’t figure out how to chop down the photo sizes ��,. the green line represents pre turbo meth injection, notice as the meth started the turbochargers slowed down then started to work more efficiently after. Picked up 15-40hp and held power. And that’s small nozzles without a tune for the meth. Just using it for safety

    Color BoostAddict.com skeptical as a 5000 horsepower supercar from Dubai sounds like vaporware. Not only is the Middle East not known for automotive production but a lot of shady things involving cars tend go on over there. Devel is promising a reveal at the Dubai International Motor Show on November 14th. Revealing a prototype and an actual running car that will be sold are two very different things. The specs are insane. 5000 horsepower from a sixteen cylinder quad-turbo motor: They can make whatever claims they want to though. This feels like vaporware. The car has been promised for over four years now not that something like this would be easy to build anyway. Guess we'll find out more on November 14th.

    Just hitting 400 kilometers per hour or 248.5 miles per hour in of itself in a car is extraordinary. Getting from zero to 400 kph and back down to zero again in 37.28 seconds is mind bending. Just how impressive is that? Well, the brand new Bugatti Chiron does the same feat in 42.0 seconds. That was the record. It is now 37.28 and held by Koenigsegg and their Agera RS. As for the Agera RS specifications: The Chiron barely had any top at the top.

    This conversion was actually completed a couple years ago yet it is surprising we are only getting run videos of it now. Whifbitz in the UK did this DCT transmission swap into a MKIV Toyota Supra and is controlling it with a Syvecs S6Plus ECU. Why a DCT swap? Well, they explain their reasoning here: The benefits are obvious but Whifbitz apparently is keeping all the information to themselves and if you want the swap you have to go through them. Their Supra is making about 700 horsepower and the gearbox is stock for now. They plan to add Dodson upgrades shortly. Adding a dual clutch to some older cars is a great way to give them a modern performance and comfort boost. Hopefully we see more of these DCT transmission swaps into various cars.

    The 720S is making headlines all over the automotive landscape because McLaren raised the bar to such a high level. The car is not really all that far off their multi-million dollar hybrid supercar the P1. Yet, it comes in at a fraction of the price although certainly not cheap. We already know how the 675LT stacks up to it from a previous video. The 675LT itself being no slouch. The 720S beats it here but it hit the limiter in doing so making the race much closer than it should be. The Ferrari F12 TDF is up next. This is the leaner and meaner (770 horsepower) version of the F12. The F12 gets a jump before getting smacked down. Up next is a Porsche 918 Spyder. The 720S pulls it up top! Holy crap. Last but certainly not least is the Bugatti Chiron. The Bugatti has a ton more power, a ton more torque, all wheel drive, and carries a ton more weight. The 720S actually hangs with it which is just mind blowing. The Chiron does start to pull before letting off but a tuned 720S may make things very tough on the Chiron. The 720S deserves every accolade out there.
