World’s Fastest – 201 MPH – Integra

June 12th, 2018

While this clip features the World’s Fastest Acura Integra, it also showcases the best-of-the-best from TX2K18. There has been a ton of coverage for this event but there were so many amazing race cars on hand that it was unbelievable. First, the Acura; it is called Gringotegra, built and prepared by Extreme Turbo System (ETS) and English Racing. If these names sound familiar; it’s because their collaborative efforts have put them on the cutting edge in quarter-mile and half-mile racing in turbocharged cars (especially Nissan GT-Rs). In the front-wheel drive Gringotegra we find an inline four-cylinder engine. This differs greatly Read More

BMW 135i vs. Nissan GT-R

December 22nd, 2017

Who’d of thunk it? A stock motor BMW 135i (on street tires) spanking Godzilla in a 40 – 140 mph roll? Say it ain’t so. Never say never – especially when you are talking about a BMW. This car is running a stock motor (158,000-miles) with stock injectors. It also has the stock transmission and rear differential and it’s running on street tires. The difference maker is a Precision 6266 turbocharger (max boost) and a methanol injection kit. The car is capable of producing 800hp. Today the BMW is rolling against a Nissan GT-R with a built motor and stock Read More

1100HP TTLSX 350Z – Street Rolls

December 11th, 2017

Looking like something from a science fiction film, this Nissan 350Z dominates on the highways (of Mexico) in a fashion that is seldom captured on video. With its wide stance and beefy rubber, this Z-Car has power to burn. It is equipped with a twin turbocharged (pair of Precision 6266s) 5.3-liter LSX (Chevrolet V8 small block) engine. Boost is currently set at 30 psi and the car is running a stock GM manual transmission. Climb into the passenger seat and see what it is like to take make a few roll racing passes in this rocket. You won’t be disappointed. Read More

Scary Street Battle – BMW vs. Cadillac

October 31st, 2017

Happy Halloween! I hope you enjoy this back and forth street (roll) racing battle between two, evenly matched, high-end street machines. Both of these cars have been modified dramatically to improve engine performance. I wouldn’t consider it a slanderous statement to say that BMW is not known for street racing prowess. That is precisely what makes this BMW 135i Coupe a great choice for a street sleeper. The slick looking Beemer has been upgraded with a Precision 6466 turbocharger and a DOCRace turbo kit, tuned by EMP Performance. Depending upon the boost setting, it is capable of producing a bit Read More

Street Racing Spectacular – Import vs. Domestic

September 4th, 2017

There is literally something for every street racing enthusiast in this video! Of course, there are tons of fast cars in every size and shape – imports and domestics, turbo and nitrous, standard and automatic. There are dig and roll races (sometimes 3-wide). There’s even a wreck and a fight (sort of). The backdrop is beautiful (New) Mexico and its flat landscape. It’s perfect for street racing. There is a bodacious DSM (1990s Mitsubishi Eclipse or Eagle Talon) that is capable of 1,000hp – from a stock 2.0-liter engine with over 100K miles. You know that there were tons of Read More

Street Digs – APR VW Golf R Slaughters

August 16th, 2017

You gotta’ love it when the underdog pulls out the victory against all odds. That is the feeling I get watching this Volkswagen Golf R as it lines up against the likes of the mighty Cadillac CTS-V and some top shelf Bavarian monsters. The VW Golf R is an all-out performance version of the popular Golf GTi. It rolls off the assembly line with a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine that is capable of producing 292hp. The R package yields sport tuned suspension, all-wheel drive, 18-inch wheels, and optional 6-speed automatic transmission with launch control. With APR turbocharger upgrades, you Read More

650HP BMW M5 – Street Rolls

July 12th, 2017

I just love a luxury car that can pull its weight in a street race. At the risk of revealing my advanced age, I’ll tell you that the luxury street racer bug first bit me when I built a huge 1978 Cadillac Coupe de Ville and implanted a nitrous injected big block Chevy running gear. It was fun but also heavy. This 2014 BMW M5 is fun but it certainly ain’t that heavy. The Bavarian Motor Works are globally recognized as leaders in the niche of elegant sports cars. The “M” in M5 refers to the BMW Motorsports division which Read More

200 MPH on the Autobahn – Ferrari 488

June 13th, 2017

Climb in and take a ride in a stunning Ferrari 488 as it zips through Germany and into France on the legendary Autobahn. As you probably already know, the Autobahn is a lovely network of highways with sections where speed has no meaning. Sure, there are recommended speed limits but no mandatory maximum speed. Most car enthusiasts have – at one time or another – dreamed of getting in a high performance sports car and tearing through the German countryside. I know that I certainly have. I can’t imagine a better car for the task than the Ferrari 488 (well, Read More

Street Racing – Cali Style

May 16th, 2017

This is how it’s done in the Golden State. They are rolling them out on the interstate and running them like wildfire! A gathering of cars such as this virtually demands that a race ensue. It matters not where they meet; just that inside the chest of every driver beats the heart of a competitor. This time they meet on the streets – the streets of La-La Land – Los Angeles (Mexico), that is. There are several Nissans (of the GT-R variety), a 2.0-liter Evo (650hp) building 40 psi of boost, a stock (LS2) motor ‘Vette (660hp) with a V1 Read More
