Random Image – Highly Modified Engine

WOW check this out, this motor looks like something out of a scary movie. If I’m not correct this is a V8 of the Chevrolet type, you can also see the huge chromed up turbos on each side of the heads. I would really have liked to give you guys the power figures but I wasn’t able to find such info on this little monster.

Drag Racing videos from National Drags

I unfortunately I was unable to attended the National Drags that took place at Killarney race track over the weekend, but luckily we were sent video clips of Saturdays National Drag event.
A friend of mine Tim was telling me about one of the drag cars popping his intake manifold on the line, you can see clearly in the video that something came flying through the front grill.
Also in the mix is a BMW E30 that looses control on pull off and ends up heading straight for the pit wall.

Also on display were some of Cape Town’s hottest show cars and LDV’s. Even though …
