This year was another great one for Underground Racing with many innovations, event wins, World Records set and most importantly many very happy customers. As this year comes to an end it is with great pleasure that we reveal our newest product for 2017 that will further the capabilities of our race proven twin turbo system as we enter the new year. We introduce you to the Underground Racing V10 Lamborghini CNC Billet Block.
Underground Racing in conjunction with Proline Race Engines and our CNC machinist for over the last year have designed a fully water cooled dry-sleeve CNC billet V10 Lamborghini block. To protect our innovative design strategies the picture provided only shows the block at a certain view from a stage of production earlier this year.
Underground Racing is very proud that up to this point all of our accomplishments have been achieved using only OEM stock engine blocks. The billet block was not used in ANY of our builds to this point. Accomplishments from this year such as the multiple Standing 1/2 Mile World Records with the most recent being at 247 MPH, the first and only 7 second 1/4 mile Lamborghini and the Texas Invitational King of the Streets Championship with a record setting speed of 220 MPH. Again, all of these we achieved using stock blocks! Considering our Teams proven extraordinary ability to make these engines live using stock blocks we will leave it to your imagination of what is to come during the new year.
We would first like to thank Justin Herricks for choosing Underground Racing to build him this monster TT Lamborghini Huracán. Also, want to thank our team here at Underground Racing and some of our vendors and friends from Precision Turbo, Proline Racing and John Reed Racing just to name a few of the people that worked hard to make this process happen. This build was completed only thirty minutes before the truck arrived to take the TT Gallardos to the Texas Invitational so it nearly didn't make it to it's first event in time.
Justin's first build with Underground was his TT Gallardo Superleggera. After being hooked by the addicting power he decided he wanted to build something special and different that absolutely no one else in the world has. His final two choices came down to the Huracán or the Aventador. In the end he decided to do the X Version build on the Huracán. Some of the upgrades include a UR Huracán X-Version turbo system with a custom set of turbochargers from Precision Turbo, our Proline Racing built Huracán X Version long block, billet UR CNC Huracán intake manifold and billet 1st-6th air shifted sequential transmission with a billet differential. John Reed Racing designed the custom MoTeC M1 harness and firmware for full direct injection control, gearbox control as well as traction control and LP610-4 front differential control setup..
Be on the lookout for more videos of this 2,000+ whp Twin Turbo Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4 and other Underground Racing Twin Turbo Huracáns. Watch the Video.
Here is a short video we put together of Richard's twin turbo Gallardo at the No Fly-Zone 1/2 mile roll race event. Richard's Underground Racing TT Superleggera is a Stage 3 and makes 1,250 WHP using race gas.
Notice on the race vs the Bugatti Veyron, Richard actually waits nearly two seconds to go after the Bugatti takes off from a roll to ensure a fair race and still has no issue leaving it in the dust. It truly gives a great perspective on how fast these TT Lamborghinis really are.
Thank you to Omega Motorsports for providing pictures and Richard for the video footage. Watch the Video.
Thanks to Grant for letting Underground Racing turn his Lamborghini into a beast. Grant's first pass out on a warm up run in the 1/2 mile from a dead stop ran 191 mph, then he backed it up with a 207, 219 and a 221 mph pass! Great first outing in his new build especially for a manual 6 speed TT Gallardo. This Gallardo makes over 1800 whp on race gas. He also has the JRR MoTeC M1 ECU with boost by gear and traction control. Look for more videos of this TT Lambo in the near future. Watch the Video.
We would like to send out a very special Thank You to Bob Helms for once again choosing Underground Racing to build him yet another monster Twin Turbo Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera. This past weekend we were able to dominate the competition and set a new record with Bob's TT Gallardo at 233.88 mph. The undisputed time to beat prior to this event was Cody's Underground Racing TT LP570 2R at 224 mph. Prior to the 224 mph run, Cody had also held the best MPH at 217 at the Houston Texas 1/2 mile. We were able to pick up nearly 10 mph from Cody's 2R best in Bob's X Series setup.
Also, we would like to thank John Reed Racing (MoTeC), Proline Racing Engines, Precision Turbo (Best turbo's on the planet) and our staff!
After verifying the Vbox file ourselves we wanted it more official so we had the Vbox file sent in to 6speedonline to have the run verified by the member there that verifies all Vbox record runs. It came back fully verified at 234.7 mph. ;) Thanks 6speedonline for the verification! Watch the Video.
Lamborghini has once again raised the bar with the creation of the Huracán LP 610-4. Hidden behind the new astonishing look of this Lamborghini lies a plethora of new technology. Technology like the AWD system that features an electronically controlled front differential similar to the Aventador, electro-mechanical power steering (EPS), dynamic steering (LDS), V10 engine configuration similar to the Gallardo featuring dual injection, launch control and a 7 Speed LDF dual-clutch transmission. These new features combined with the high definition instrument displays and perfected interior make for an exciting and fun video game like drive every time you get in the driver's seat. Now, how do you make such an amazing car even better? Easy, just add Underground! See it Now.
Huge congrats to Jason "Mullet" for winning the 6 speed challenge in his Underground Racing TT Gallardo. Also congrats to Stacy and Tag for 2nd and 3rd place in their Underground Racing TT Lamborghini's. We put together a video with a few of everyones runs. Watch the Video.
Congrats to our customers Vinny and Pete for finishing 1st and 2nd at the Pocono roll race event in their Underground Racing TT Gallardo's. Both cars are stage 3 setups with race heads. I will make it to the next one. Looked to be a lot of great cars there. I never realized how big the event has gotten!
Here is a pretty funny video we found from the event. Video Here
Here is a short video of Dustin's Underground Racing 2R TT Gallardo at TI. This was his first time at the event. Dustin did a hell of a job racing his street car with the big boys of the TI event. He even beat me! Keep in mind that Dustin's car is a true street car that is ODB2 compliant. It also uses the factory Egear control system. This TTG could have left Texas and drove to California and back home to Georgia. He was also running on R888 street tires through the entire event, like the rest of his teammates. Huge thanks to our team and John Reed Racing.
Check out the video here.
Here is the Underground Racing event video from the GA WannaGoFast 1/2 mile event. Dustin's Underground Racing TT Superleggera set the event record at 218 mph, and then backed it up with 2 passes over 219 mph. Dustin's car is 100% a street car. It's also using the factory E-gear electronics. Keep in mind that the elevation was near 3,000 feet and it was hot with around 90% humidity. These cars are going to fly closer to sea level with better weather. We were glad to see Dustin get this win given that it was near his home town of Atlanta, GA. Expect more videos of Dustin's TT Lamborghini at the Texas Invitational next weekend. The R8 never got a full pass, testing some new stuff, more coming soon from that beast;) Special thanks to Dustin and Marty for bringing their cars out.

It’s that time of the year when it feels like every time you turn around there is another racing event and all of our team at Underground Racing is working around the clock to ensure that all of our clients are prepared. At the last event, the TX2K14 Roll Race Nationals, two of our clients took home 1st and 2nd places in the Unlimited Class. As many of you know this is not the first time Underground Racing cars have taken more than one of the top spots at the same event. When this happens it seems to kind of dull down the excitement of the final rounds for the spectators and competitors. ... Read More...
We want to congratulate Stacy Barnett for winning the classes he participated in at the Shift Sector race event last weekend in California. Until this event, I don't believe Stacy had ever even driven a Gallardo. The Underground Racing TT 2R Gallardo was delivered to California Saturday morning, and he made his first ever passes starting with a couple of 1/2 track pulls to feel the car out and made one full pass Saturday at 215 mph! That was on a lower power setting, and that was all for Saturday. On Sunday the guys started easing some more power...Read More...
Yet another Twin Turbo Gallardo headed to TEXAS...
Underground Racing Unveils the FIRST Twin Turbo Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. This beast pushes 1200HP and reaches 60mph from 0 in just 2.2 seconds.
Here is a picture of the latest tech shop at Underground Racing. All of the R&R takes place here at this shop. The tech shop holds about 2/3's of our projects, mostly being TT Gallardos. We will post a picture of the Fabrication/Tuning and Race Development shops soon.

Underground Racing is happy to announce that 2 of their customer driven cars captured the top 2 spots at this year's Texas Mile event Oct. 22-24, 2010. Congrats to Jonah Yokubaitis for taking his UR equipped 2005 black Gallardo TT to 241mph AND his 2009 orange LP560 TT to 243mph. Underground Racing equipped cars have quickly become THE cars to beat at the Texas Mile.

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to go out to North Carolina with some folks at Mobil 1 for a weekend filled with automotive insanity. We made a stop to a very famous shop on the outskirts of Charlotte, Underground Racing. It's a shop that houses hundreds of thousands of horses under its roof and is an automotive fan boy's wet dream.
Like, how stealth can you be when two of the over-the-top, twin-turbo Lamborghini Gallardos you’ve built for your customers practically own the Texas Mile standing-mile shootout? (Longtime customer Kyle Bennett did 241 mph last summer and Richard Holt’s lighter Superleggera killed the two-fifty mark this past March.)
The big winner of the Texas Mile event on March 26-28, 2010 was Richard Holt for piloting an Underground Racing Twin Turbo Gallardo Superleggera 250.1 MPH with an E-Gear transmission. The first few days at The Texas Mile proved to be grueling as the Team experimented on both Gallardos with different turbos and suspension settings achieving a top speed of 220mph by the half mile. When the Supra's and Ford GT's started getting faster each run on Saturday it was time to stop and prepare them for full attack mode and be ready for a Sunday kill.
On Wednesday, November 4, PlayStation hosted the 7th annual Gran Turismo (GT) Awards in Las Vegas, taking place in conjunction with the 2009 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show.
