7-Second Lexus IS300 – 1300HP Turbo 2JZ

April 9th, 2021

We are back to TX2K21 for this one. Tonight, we meet Murda 2J and he brings us up to speed on his incredible Lexus (Toyota) IS300. Even with a stock (not sleeved) engine block, this compact sedan can claim the title for first IS300 to ever post a 7-second quarter-mile (7.8-seconds). The motor is a stock 2JZGE, which is one of the inline 6-cylinder bottom-ends originally used by Lexus. Although the block is essentially stock, the pistons and connecting rods have been replaced with performance parts and hardware. The cylinder head has been upgraded to a 2JZGTE model head.

Drag Racing History – Mickey Thompson’s 427 HEMI Galaxy 500

April 8th, 2021

For some of us, this video will be a journey back to a very different time in racing and hot rod history. It was a time before computers and easily obtainable fuel injection. It was a time when cars not only looked different – they smelled and felt different, too. Cars were big and heavy and 1,000hp seemed like the stuff of fantasy. NASCAR Cup cars only ran about 700hp on a good day. Nevertheless, there is something magical about an old car created for the sole purpose of going from A to B as fast as possible. That’s what Read More

Rolling Coal – Cummins Stuffed Ford Ranger

April 7th, 2021

Like a little black locomotive, that’s Northbound with the hammer down, this Big Tire Ford Ranger is rolling coal like it’s going out of style. This is one of the most unique looking pickups that we have ever seen. What catches your eye? Is it the massive (14-inch wide) slicks on the rear with the skinnies on the front? Maybe it’s the radiator and fans strapped to the roll cage in the bed? Possibly the Cummins badges strategically placed about the exterior? With a best elapsed time of 10.1-seconds @ 136 mph, one would think this truck is pushing 800 Read More

10-Second All Motor Mustang GT – Street Hits

April 6th, 2021

We’re headed back to the Sunshine State tonight where we’ll meet up with Austin Rodriquez and his 2018 Ford Mustang GT at Palm Beach Dyno. Austin has posted a best elapsed time of 10.1-seconds @ 136 mph in the quarter-mile, but tonight he will be taking it to the street for some roll racing hits against a nitrous Chevrolet C5 Corvette and a Nissan GT-R with full bolt-ons running E85 fuel. This stunning Mustang GT has undergone some significant mods, but Austin is yet to include ant type of power-adder. That’s right – no nitrous, no blower and no turbocharger. Read More

Comeback Kid – 1800HP Stick Shift Camaro

April 3rd, 2021

This kid has got an incredible story to tell drag racing fans around the world. After posting a personal best ET of 7.48-seconds @ 191 mph at TX2K21, this guy pulled the ‘chute and slammed his bomb-diggity Camaro into the retaining wall on the left. Typically, this would indicate that a driver and race team were through. Lucky for these guys, the competitors at TX2K21 were not having any of that. This rowdy band of gearheads pitched in and removed the damaged front panels, replaced the front spindles and swapped the wheels. With a few more wrinkles in the rear Read More

That is especially true Read More

TX2K21 Competitors Take to the Streets

March 24th, 2021

Where do you think all those TX2K21 gearheads go when the dragstrip closes? Well, this group of hardcore dig racers decided to do some street racing (on a closed course in Mexico). They trailered their Small Tire monsters in and prepared to get down for a pile of cash. The rules are typical. Don’t cut the light early. Don’t cross the center line in front of your opponent. Be the first to cross the finish line. Accomplish these three things more than anyone else on the property and take home all the money. Oh, by the way, it’s a single Read More

March 23rd, 2021

So, this modified Ford F-150 Lightning pickup has got a thing for this Dodge Demon. He wants a piece of him and has called him out on the dragstrip. It’s about to get down.
