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

Porsche 997 Turbo S vs. Corvette ZR1 – Street Hits

May 12th, 2018

Now, what we have here is a group of fun loving car enthusiasts taking to the highways of Mexico for some 40 and 50 mph roll racing. Yeah, I hear all you drag racers out there (and I do love my dig racing) but don’t knock it until you’ve tried it. No need to close down the road and no flagman required; these races start with the third drop of an arm extended from a window opening. The onboard cameraman and all the GoPro units catch all the action that is fast and furious – to say the least. Tonight’s Read More

Beware of Snakes – 200 MPH Viper ACR

May 12th, 2018

Running in the rear-wheel drive class, this Gen V Dodge Viper ACR is a fresh build with factory aerodynamics, air conditioning, power steering, and 19-inch wheels. This is literally a street car that can manage 200 mph in less than a half-mile – from a standing stop. Like the body, the engine is stock except for cylinder sleeves. Sleeved cylinders allow this huge 8.4-liter V10 engine to withstand the added rigor of a pair of turbochargers (Calvo Motorsports kit). Horsepower to the rear wheels is dyno-documented at 1,750. Today this nasty serpent will be taking on the closed course at Read More

The GT-R That Jack Built

May 11th, 2018

Running in the fine air that permeates Colorado Springs, Colorado, an outstanding field of performance cars has gathered to assault a half-mile patch of abandoned airstrip. Among them is this no-nonsense Nissan GT-R. The Pike’s Peak Airstrip Attack is among the most prestigious top-speed events in the world.   This black beauty is powered by a 4.1-liter stroker motor (aluminum connecting rods) with an Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) kit on it (twin Precision 6466 turbochargers). At 37 psi, the car maxed a 1,500hp dyno out. Jack’s Transmissions performed the build on the entire car and they are on-hand today to Read More

Texas Street Rolls

May 9th, 2018

They say that everything is bigger in Texas. This may be an exaggerated statement but Texas street racers certainly do it as big as anybody in the land. They just do it south of the border. This clip features a diverse blend of imported and domestic vehicles that are purpose built for roll racing. These guys (and girls) roll onto the interstate and engage in a pure contest of speed that begins at 60 mph. The camera car is a 1,000+hp Nissan GT-R. In the first contest, it will do battle with a Cadillac CTS-V (nitrous equipped). The turbocharged import Read More

Tesla Mom Car is Track Monster

May 2nd, 2018

Careful that you don’t get spanked by a soccer mom in the quietest compact SUV (with gull-wing doors) that you could ever imagine. The Tesla X is now prowling the streets and it can be challenging to say the least. With all-wheel drive and total electric power, this little grocery-getter comes out of the hole like a bullet. Today, it will be taking on the world in closed track contests that include roll and dig races. Spoiler alert: This thing is deadly from the dig! First up is a motorcycle. It is the legendary 2012 Suzuki Hayabusa with full bolt-ons. Read More

Another 6-Second GT-R – Tony Palo T1

April 10th, 2018

Tony Palo and the T1 Race Development Team have settled in among the elite in Nissan GT-R record-breakers. These guys campaign one of the more unique looking cars on the GT-R circuit. The first thing that catches my eye is the widebody treatment. This car looks like something out of a science fiction flick. The subtle camo pattern paint is out of this world and rounds out an aesthetic that makes this car one of the most eye-catching of the season (even at TX2K18). After 3-years of running this car through the vicious cycle of race, break, repair, and repeat; Read More
