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

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

Stock Motor GT-R – First 9-Second Pass

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

200 MPH Vengeance Corvette

March 7th, 2019

Fast Chevrolet Corvette coupes and Vengeance Racing (Cumming, Georgia) seem to go together like peanut butter and strawberry preserves. Every time we see these guys, they have a trailer loaded with a half-dozen (or so) of the most capable LS powered sports cars imaginable. Today is special for Ron and the crew from Vengeance. They are all set to surprise friend and long-time customer Chuck beyond his wildest dreams. With about 2-years on his Novi 2200 and 7.0-liter LSX setup, Chuck brought his Corvette in needing a refresh on the engine with some more potent upgrades to follow (when the 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

1200WHP Ford GT vs 1200WHP Viper – Texas Street Hits

March 1st, 2019

Well, it’s flooding down in Texas – flooding high-end roll racers, that is. Almost time for TX2K19 and it seems that the serious competitors are in town early. The track isn’t available at this hour, but these guys won’t let that stop them. They’re on a mission for street hits so they jump across the southern border into Mexico. Take a gander. In the first flight, the camera car is a 780whp Supra. The first race is between a 900whp ZR1 Corvette and a 1,000whp (black) Supra. Corvette takes the hit and wins it. Next up is a 915whp Corvette Read More

9-Second McLaren 720S – World Record Pass

February 27th, 2019

Howdy racing fans and welcome back to TRC Street Kings 2016. On the starting line today is a World Record class McLaren 720S. The car will be put to the test in this video; with roll racing, dig racing, and dyno runs. First and foremost, car owner Miguel says that his car is street. It maintains the luxurious interior and that includes air conditioning, stereo, and power steering. The seating is factory and suitable for an evening on the town with your sweetheart or a weekend at the race track. Nevertheless, this British-made beauty is capable of producing more than Read More

Qatar Streets – Lamborghini vs. Porsche and Nissan

February 22nd, 2019

In this clip, we get the opportunity to meet a group of young men charged with breaking-in a brand-new system of highways – some of which have never even been driven. Six lanes of empty interstate are a roll racers dream and some of the most elite entries imaginable have turned up to compete in head-to-head action. Enough about highway – let’s get down to getting down. Starting out small (so to speak) we have an 1,100hp Nissan Patrol versus an 800hp Chevrolet Silverado 1500. The SUV captures the advantage and runs off into the Arabian night. Beautiful! Next up, Read More

Mustang GT500 Kenne Bell vs. GT-R and McLaren – Street Hits

February 19th, 2019

Driving your friend’s GT500 on the streets of Mexico is the absolute best time to encounter a couple of brass ring supercars out trolling for a victim. Even in the darkest of night, the Ford seems outmatched by these top tier sports cars. This is easily seen by all on hand. What is unforeseen is the fact that this (daily driven) Shelby GT500 Mustang has been favorably modified for just such a scenario as this. Take a look. The stock engine and transmission are easy prey for the exotics but a Kenne Bell 2.8-liter blower changes the odds. Power was Read More

Carbon Fiber R33 Skyline – Ride Along Street Hits

February 15th, 2019

The JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) R33 Skyline is the black sheep of the Nissan Skyline family. Overweight, oversized, clunky, and under-powered are all adjectives used to describe this often-maligned sports coupe. So, what’s a guy (or gal) to do? Knuckle-under and succumb to the pressure? Buy a more desirable R32 or R34 Skyline, instead? Negative! The R33 owner in this video chose to go with the most unpredictable of options. He has dumped a load of cash into changing every single body panel (and the wheels) into lightweight carbon fiber. This not only netted a significant reduction in the overall Read More
