New U.S. GT-R Quarter-Mile Record

Hello fellow racing fans! Join me in congratulating car owner Gidi Chamdi, ETS (Extreme Turbo Systems), and English Racing in setting the new U.S. Record for a Nissan GT-R, in the quarter-mile (elapsed time and top speed). With a 6.73-second pass @ 223 mph, on day two of TX2K19, the cast and crew of the Alpha G car managed to dive deeper into the sixes and accomplish a feat that no one ever had in a GT-R on a U.S. drag strip. The ETS car is owned and piloted by an extremely fit, pitbull of a race driver known as Read More

New Mexico Cash Days – Big Money Street Drags

Hello, my street racing peers and welcome to the flat-lands of (New) Mexico for some big money dig racing. On-hand are some of the baddest imports and domestics west of the Pecos. These hard-charging guys and gals are chomping at the bit for head-to-head, single elimination, winner-take-all street (dig) racing. The rules are simple: Don’t jump the light early. Don’t cross the center line. Be first to cross the finish line. Do these three things and you will advance to the next round. If you make it to the final; win and take home $3,700 cash. Runner up gets $800, Read More

Villain – 1000HP Street Dominator Chevelle SS

When money is no object, and you simply must have the baddest car on the street, a frame-off resto-mod will usually fill the ticket. This 1970 Chevelle certainly will. Not a bad car when it came to Detroit Speed, the owner was just yearning for a bit more from this old girl. She already had a potent 502 cubic-inch Chevy Performance big block. The car looked acceptable enough but – WOW! – when an expert begins to inspect and configure; things can get real expensive, real quick. After a frame upgrade, a roll cage, new floor panels, and new wheel Read More

TX2K19 Import Showcase – Roll Hits and Digs

With a chill in the air and gray skies overhead, Day 2 of TX2K15 is underway with entries from Underground Racing, ETS (including Gidi in his Alpha G), AMS, and other heavy hitters on-hand. With roll racing and digs on the slate, looks like it’s going to be a long one. Walking a fine line between cooler temperatures (along with the denser air that they bring) and frozen precipitation, these competitors are torn between the possibility of setting a new World Record and uncontrollably veering into the wall. Cooler, denser air – fun. Slippery, wet drag strip – not fun. Read More

Violent Thrust Mode in Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Lifts the Front Wheels off the Ground

The Aventador SVJ launched so hard it actually lifted the front wheels off the ground during our 1/4 mile testing. Watch in slow motion as we get all the data from the SVJ while at the drag strip including 0-60 MPH, 0-100 MPH, 1/4 mile. Gear we use: https://goo.gl/4AczKS    

900WHP BMW 325i – Track Roll Racing Beast

Greetings racing fans! Please allow me to introduce Francis Von Louie and his awesome BMW 325i. This is a car purpose-built to run 60-65 mph rolls on the track. To say that Frank dominated the competition during the SlipStream Roll Racing season of 2018 would be an understatement. This clip grabs some of the best moments of the summer and brings them to you, here. Take a gander. The 2.8-liter M52 engine in Frank’s sedan has been rebuilt with high-performance connecting rods and pistons. The turbocharger has been upgraded to a Borg Warner S369 (at 32 psi) and he is Read More

3000HP Alpha Queen – 7-Second 200 MPH Quarter-Mile

The Nissan GT-R World Cup. This is the premiere event for the entry-level sports car affectionately known as Godzilla. On this drag strip – today – some of the most capable Japanese high-performance machines in the world will put it all on the line for cash and bragging rights. Hold on to your hats for this one! AMS (Automotorsports, Inc.) is out in force with some of their baddest builds, but a particular entry catches my eye. It is copper/chrome and when it accelerates; well, it sounds like the world will end. This thing is amazing. It is capable of Read More

Demonology Dodge vs. DMS Cadillac CTS-V Track Digs

Greetings drag racing fans, to the Texas Motorplex and CTS-V Invitational. Question is: How’d this Mopar get in here? There is no shortage of potent Cadillac sedans, coupes, and even wagons on-hand to try and claim the crown as top Caddy in the Lone Star State. Up until now, they have all been tested and come up short against the Demonology Dodge. All except one. The lone contender is a pearl white CTS-V Coupe, piloted by a little lady (named Beverly) who knows how to throw-down. Today she’ll get her chance to shut Demonology up, once and for all – Read More
