New Half-Mile GT-R Top Speed Record

June 19th, 2017

Congratulations to Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) and English Racing. They have (once again) carved themselves out a place in the history of speed. The venue for this prolific undertaking was the ShiftS3ctor/Revolution Pike’s Peak Airstrip Attack in Colorado. Before the event began, Lucas English was heard to say that he would be pleased to surpass the previous top speed world record in the standing mile. That record was 252 mph. That was considered pretty optimistic since Pike’s Peak is only a half-mile course. The ETS GT-R is at the forefront of 1-mile, half-mile, and quarter-mile GT-R racing. These guys have Read More

Nissan Drone Does 0 to 60 mph in 1.3-Seconds

June 23rd, 2016

Today Nissan introduces us to their new high-performance drone. Its sole purpose is to track and film the 2017 Nissan GT-R during high-speed maneuvers but today it will race against the GT-R. This impressive drone is built by Tornado XBlades Racing and piloted by James Bowles (2015 British National Drone Racing Champ). The race will take place on the 1/2-mile track at Silverstone (U.K.). The GT-R top speed is an electronically controlled 195 mph. It should leave the drone in the dust (with its top speed of just 114 mph) but curves and hills must be taken into account. This Read More

2000HP GT-R vs. 2000HP Lamborghini

June 24th, 2015

Maybe you have heard of a little performance outfitter from Oberlin, Ohio, called Switzer Performance. Here is a video that depicts their flagship Goliath GT-R in head to head drag racing (and roll racing) against some pretty stout competition. Porsche, Nissan, Chevrolet, and Lamborghini all roll out to challenge Goliath. The GoPro mounted on the right front fender of the GT-R catches all the up-close action (does that hood make anyone else as nervous as it does me?) The Switzer Goliath package includes an engine and transmission rebuild, driveline and suspension upgrades, twin turbochargers, specially made manifolds and intercoolers, and Read More

McLaren P1 vs Porsche 918 Spyder vs Ducati 1199

October 13th, 2014

Autocar tried to put together the race everyone’s been waiting for, a HyperCar hybrid drag race between the McLaren P1, Porsche 918 Spyder and Ferrari LaFerrari at an airstrip, but with the Ferrari LaFerrari being a no show, they substituted in a Ducati 1199 Superleggera. The results were pretty much as expected and amazing to watch from the starting line as well as from a Drone as the Porsche 918 with it’s 875HP and AWD drive catapults ahead of the McLaren and Ducati.  Shortly after the launch at around 130MPH the McLaren P1 with it’s superior power to weight ratio Read More
