Street Racing Cowboy Style

April 27th, 2017

This well produced clip documents a night of competitive dig racing on the streets of Dallas/Fort Worth (Mexico, of course). It’s called Mini Cash Days and the buy-in is $100 per car with a 10-car field. It’s winner take all (actually 80-percent) and the action is single elimination with the losers in each round going back on the trailer. Lots of great looking street racers showed up for this night of street racing. It’s mostly Chevys and Fords but there is a particularly impressive LSX swapped Datsun 300Z and a couple of Cadillacs – you gotta see this one. When Read More

April 27th, 2017

Climb on board the Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) Nissan GT-R and let Lucas English (of English Racing) take you step-by-step through a 1/4-mile pass.

This is no exhibition race, drag racing fans, it’s for all the marbles and this video puts you in the passenger seat Read More

3-Wide Street Dig and Roll from Mexico

April 12th, 2017

This is how they do it south of the border – down (Nuevo) Mexico way. One could call this clip “Street Racing at its Best”. There are cars from all over the globe; Acura, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Dodge, Diamond Star Motors (DSM), Ford, Honda (rear-engine, 500hp?!), Nissan, and Subaru are all well represented here. Rolls The evening begins with a pair of supercharged C6 ‘Vettes locking horns in roll racing action. This turns out to be one of the closest races of the night. Next up, you have a couple of roll passes that feature a herd of the baddest Ford Read More

1500HP 2JZ Corolla – GT-R Killer

April 7th, 2017

How bad has this got to suck? First, you pay over $100k for a high-performance Nissan GT-R, dump a bunch more cash in it to make it even faster, then carry it out to the drag strip. All sounds great so far, huh? So, you’re having a pretty good day, then you line up against an eighties Toyota Corolla Hatch. I mean the ‘Yota looks alright with its backyard graphics and big tires but you got this from start to finish, right? Wrong! The Toyota takes the hole shot from you and gaps your behind by several lengths! Ouch! What Read More

Raw Roll Racing – Import vs. Domestic

March 28th, 2017

Fans of roll racing on the streets will love this video like a fat man loves apple pie (ala mode). It has it all – procharged, turbocharged, and even naturally aspirated (N/A) cars. This night of roll racing action is taking place on the streets of San Antonio, Mexico (of course). Only a few minutes into this one and I could tell that there were some pretty heavy-hitters on hand. It also seemed like most of the cars were evenly matched (according to power) for a competitive night of racing. Let’s take a look! First up is a Corvette Z06 Read More

New Half-Mile Top Speed World Record

March 25th, 2017

Greetings drag racing fans and speed enthusiasts of every ilk. Please join the DragTimes staff in celebrating a brand spanking new World Record Top Speed for the 1/2-mile! It seems that our counterparts in Dubai have once again been busy with staying on the cutting edge in Nissan GT-R modification. While everyone in the U.S. has been busy with trying to break into the sixes in the 1/4-mile dig (and getting it done!), Alpha Logic (a Dubai based firm) decided to go ahead and bust the 1/2-mile world record with their Alpha K GT-R. In all fairness, it wouldn’t be Read More

No Prep Turbo V8 Nissan 240sx

March 25th, 2017

This video features exactly the type of vehicle that gets my blood pumping. I love taking a small and lightweight, rear-wheel drive car and putting in a big, V8 engine with at least one power adder. If you do it right – and this guy has apparently done it just right – you can win a lot of races (cash) on the street and strip. For this type of hybrid build, the Nissan 240 has long been a favorite of amateur and street racers. There are four major reasons for this: The sharp looking little import bodies are readily available Read More

Taking it to the Streets – TX2K17

March 22nd, 2017

So, this is what happens when a few thousand of the baddest street cars on the planet show up for the premier street racing event in the U.S. and – you guessed it – take it to the streets! There is something in this video for everyone. There are small cars, big cars, coupes and sedans, imports (from every corner of the globe) and domestics, naturally aspirated cars, turbocharged cars, blown cars, nitrous injected cars – there are even electric cars, SUVs, and pickups. If you are into roll racing on the street, this clip is for you. This production Read More

New World Record – 6-Second GT-R

March 21st, 2017

Greetings drag racing fans and all other aficionados of speed. This is a video that you simply cannot miss! We finally have a 6-second GT-R (and the first all-wheel drive car to ever dip below 7-seconds in the 1/4-mile). One of the big time players in turbo modification, AMS performance, and one of the most talented owner/drivers (Gideon “Gidi” Chamdi) on the circuit collaborated in this long-time endeavor that finally came into fruition during last weekend’s TX2K17. Gidi’s Nissan, known as the Alpha G, uses a unique turbocharger setup that relocates the forced air induction to a lower point in Read More

TX2K17 – GT-R Elite Ready to Roll

March 17th, 2017

With TX2K17 all set to begin, the racing world stands in anticipation to see if 2017 is the year of a true 6-second street car. Firms like AMS, ETS, and T1 Race Development are all fan favorites and all are capable of achieving the coveted 6-second ET with their cutting edge Nissan GT-R monsters. Nevertheless, there are hundreds of other competitors who have been working just as hard with their Lamborghinis, Porsches, Chevrolets, and Dodges. Anyone has a chance to be King of the Streets and it ain’t over until it’s over. Were it left up to me, I would Read More
