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

March 20th, 2019

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

TX2K19 Import Showcase – Roll Hits and Digs

March 18th, 2019

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

900WHP BMW 325i – Track Roll Racing Beast

March 15th, 2019

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

March 14th, 2019

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

March 13th, 2019

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

March 13th, 2019

This clip introduces us to cute and cool Brooke Berini as she posts her first ever 9-second (quarter-mile) pass in her stock motor (and transmission) 2009 Nissan GT-R. What is truly amazing is that the car has more than 80k on the odometer, has logged over 80 quarter-mile passes, and is daily driven. The other thing that stands out about this GT-R is the spine-grabbing pink chrome paint job. Wow! First there’s Brooke. She’s cute like baby-sister but, when she begins her interview, she sounds like a seasoned racer. You gotta love that! With only minor modifications, this car is Read More

8-Second Demon is Pure Carbon Fiber

Gearhead Fabrications and the Speedkore Performance Group collaborated on this beautiful carbon-fiber Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Under the hood is a custom twin turbo setup with a pair of Precision 7675 turbochargers. A CO2 boost controller and a two-step rev-limiter help to keep all the ponies in the pen.

Greetings drag racing fans. Join me as this clip takes us back to the Thunder Valley Raceway Park in Noble, Oklahoma for Outlaw Armageddon. This event is being billed as the World Series of No Prep but can it live up to the hype? Take a look. Fresh off three consecutive wins, Tony V and his Gen IV Camaro are looking to grab the $25,000 grand prize in the Small Tire Class. Despite finishing up a new setup only about a month prior to this season, Tony and crew think they can make it four in a row. Safe to Read More

1500HP ETS Nissan GT-R Street Monster

March 5th, 2019

Prepared by Top Speed Motorsports, this pavement eating monster of a 2017 Nissan GT-R is ravenous on the track and respectable on the street. In breaking with the Godzilla moniker, Andrew’s GT-R more closely resembles the Hulk. Calm and cordial David Banner by day, but you wouldn’t like him when he’s angry. This car is running a prototypical stock turbo manifold kit from ETS. The engine is a 3.8-liter V6 with a billet crankshaft. The intake manifold is a dual-injector unit from AMS with some ID fuel injectors. The controller is a MoTec unit tuned by Taylor Lear and the Read More
