New Half-Mile Top Speed World Record

Greetings drag racing fans and speed enthusiasts of every ilk. Please join the DragTimes staff in celebrating a brand spanking new World Record Top Speed for the 1/2-mile! It seems that our counterparts in Dubai have once again been busy with staying on the cutting edge in Nissan GT-R modification. While everyone in the U.S. has been busy with trying to break into the sixes in the 1/4-mile dig (and getting it done!), Alpha Logic (a Dubai based firm) decided to go ahead and bust the 1/2-mile world record with their Alpha K GT-R. In all fairness, it wouldn’t be Read More

No Prep Turbo V8 Nissan 240sx

This video features exactly the type of vehicle that gets my blood pumping. I love taking a small and lightweight, rear-wheel drive car and putting in a big, V8 engine with at least one power adder. If you do it right – and this guy has apparently done it just right – you can win a lot of races (cash) on the street and strip. For this type of hybrid build, the Nissan 240 has long been a favorite of amateur and street racers. There are four major reasons for this: The sharp looking little import bodies are readily available Read More

Taking it to the Streets – TX2K17

So, this is what happens when a few thousand of the baddest street cars on the planet show up for the premier street racing event in the U.S. and – you guessed it – take it to the streets! There is something in this video for everyone. There are small cars, big cars, coupes and sedans, imports (from every corner of the globe) and domestics, naturally aspirated cars, turbocharged cars, blown cars, nitrous injected cars – there are even electric cars, SUVs, and pickups. If you are into roll racing on the street, this clip is for you. This production Read More

New World Record – 6-Second GT-R

Greetings drag racing fans and all other aficionados of speed. This is a video that you simply cannot miss! We finally have a 6-second GT-R (and the first all-wheel drive car to ever dip below 7-seconds in the 1/4-mile). One of the big time players in turbo modification, AMS performance, and one of the most talented owner/drivers (Gideon “Gidi” Chamdi) on the circuit collaborated in this long-time endeavor that finally came into fruition during last weekend’s TX2K17. Gidi’s Nissan, known as the Alpha G, uses a unique turbocharger setup that relocates the forced air induction to a lower point in Read More

TX2K17 – GT-R Elite Ready to Roll

With TX2K17 all set to begin, the racing world stands in anticipation to see if 2017 is the year of a true 6-second street car. Firms like AMS, ETS, and T1 Race Development are all fan favorites and all are capable of achieving the coveted 6-second ET with their cutting edge Nissan GT-R monsters. Nevertheless, there are hundreds of other competitors who have been working just as hard with their Lamborghinis, Porsches, Chevrolets, and Dodges. Anyone has a chance to be King of the Streets and it ain’t over until it’s over. Were it left up to me, I would Read More

Street Battle – Dodge Viper vs. Porsche 911

Hello drag racing fans and speed enthusiasts of every variety and welcome to an epic contest between pure performance and overwhelming finesse. This competition transcends the long-time rivalry between imported and domestic vehicles and steps over into a realm where handcrafted elegance meets homespun horsepower. Before I get any deeper into the cars, this contest is taking place on a sunny stretch of highway south of the border. The action is of the roll racing variety. There are multiple passes and multiple camera angles. As you have probably deduced by now, the beast part of this equation is a 2016 Read More

Angry Nissan SUV – 206 MPH Half-Mile

This video comes to us from a far away land. The Qatar Peninsula in Western Asia provides the backdrop for this world record setting 1/2-mile pass (by an SUV). The firm responsible for this extraordinary Nissan Patrol SUV is one that should be familiar to racing enthusiasts. AAP Performance is consistently on the cutting edge in almost any area of drag racing that can be imagined. What may not be familiar to readers is the Nissan Patrol. The Patrol is only sold in North America under the Infiniti brand. It competes on other continents with the Toyota Land Cruiser, the Read More
