Street Racing: Import VS. Domestic

July 3rd, 2015

There is something extra-thrilling about racing at night. As the sun fades and the moon makes its appearance, ambient temperatures ease down and racing conditions enter the realm of perfection. This video documents just such a street race, as a potent all-wheel drive import supercar clashes with a hard charging all-American rear-wheel drive muscle car. Let’s begin with the C5 Corvette. It is equipped with a specially built 418-cubic-inch V8 racing engine. In front of that sits a single Precision 8891 turbocharger, behind it a 6-speed manual transmission with a Monster Lt1-R clutch. Output is estimated loosely at 1,100+HP. The Read More

200+ MPH at 2015 Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack

June 30th, 2015

Shiny Lamborghinis, Nissan GT-Rs, Porsche 918s, Corvettes, Camaros, and other exotic street cars provided a fresh new wrinkle at the 2015 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC). This video portrays bits from this past weekends second running of the PPIHC Airstrip Attack, sponsored by the Revvolution Modified Lifestyle and Shift-S3ctor, as these awesome street machines blast down dual half-mile airstrips in a unmitigated contest of speed and driving prowess. Twin turbo was the obvious theme of the event so, of course, the Lamborghini “fleet” from Underground Racing was in attendance. The GT-R contingent was also “stretching their legs” in the Read More

Twin Turbo Viper – King of the Streets?

June 25th, 2015

Congratulations to Andy N. and the gang at D3 Performance Engineering for a win in the Rear-Wheel Drive Class at the 2015 Texas Invitational Automotive Airfield Exhibition. Andy also campaigned his twin turbocharged Viper successfully in the King of the Streets Class, defeating a couple of turbocharged Underground Lamborghinis and making it to the finals before falling to the AMS Performance Nissan GT-R. Andy’s Dodge Viper is powered by a 540-cubic-inch Gentry Performance engine with twin 76-millimeter turbochargers slamming air down its gullet. With the boost turned down to 25 psi, horsepower is estimated at 1,750, with a ceiling of Read More

2000HP GT-R vs. 2000HP Lamborghini

June 24th, 2015

Maybe you have heard of a little performance outfitter from Oberlin, Ohio, called Switzer Performance. Here is a video that depicts their flagship Goliath GT-R in head to head drag racing (and roll racing) against some pretty stout competition. Porsche, Nissan, Chevrolet, and Lamborghini all roll out to challenge Goliath. The GoPro mounted on the right front fender of the GT-R catches all the up-close action (does that hood make anyone else as nervous as it does me?) The Switzer Goliath package includes an engine and transmission rebuild, driveline and suspension upgrades, twin turbochargers, specially made manifolds and intercoolers, and Read More

2,000HP AMS GT-R King of the Streets

June 18th, 2015

For the second time in as many years,  the AMS GT-R has defeated all challengers at the event which many driving enthusiasts believe is the epitome of roll racing; the Texas Invitational Automotive Airfield Exhibition. Amid a field that includes several twin-turbocharged Lamborghinis and a TT-Dodge Viper, the AMS Performance built Nissan GT-R endures to the end in some very close heads up roll racing. The AMS GT-R is equipped with a fresh Alpha 4.0-liter all-aluminum big-bore engine block and a pair of Alpha CNC ported cylinder heads. A full Alpha exhaust system, specially tuned Alpha Omega turbo kit (complete Read More

1,325HP GT-R vs. Porsche 918 Spyder

June 8th, 2015

Two of the most prominent supercars on the planet square-off in this epic battle of speed and driving technique. This clip provides video evidence than a $100k supercar can tangle with a $1-million supercar and come out on top. Although the Nissan has been drastically modified (probably at least an additional $50k), many would consider it the underdog in any race that includes the legendary high-performance-hybrid Porsche 918 – not so fast! The Porsche 918 Spyder utilizes a mid-mounted 4.6-liter V8 internal combustion engine and a series of lithium-ion battery powered electric motors to generate 887-horsepower and accomplish a stunning Read More

200 MPH Street Race: Audi R8 vs. Nissan GT-R

June 4th, 2015

This is a real battle of the big boys. Here is another clip from the MRL, featuring a 1500hp 2010 Audi R8 and a very potent Nissan GT-R in a rolling race on the streets. Both drivers are somewhat close mouthed about their respective steeds but, as they say, “it will all come out in the wash”. The R8 seems to take the initial advantage but it proves fleeting as the mighty GT-R powers past and blasts to over 200 mph, seriously energizing the driver. The powerful Nissan is built around a 4.1-liter Sonny Bryant drag racing engine with twin Read More

1300HP Nissan GT-R Devours Super-Street Bikes

May 27th, 2015

This clip shows why the Nissan GT-R is affably nicknamed “Goliath.” If a stock GT-R is Goliath, then this 1300HP Boost Logic creation is a critter of unimaginable proportions. It makes nearly triple the factory horsepower of the already proficient Nissan supercar. Watch as it gobbles up a new BMW 1000RR street bike like a – well, like a monster! The Boost Logic BLGTR1300 kit includes a BL triple fuel pump system, BL oil cooler kit, intercooler kit, and harmonic damper. It also gets a BL 4-inch exhaust system (with or without electronic dumps) and BL cool air intake. A Read More

200+MPH Street Racing Texas Style

April 24th, 2015

It has been said that everything is bigger in Texas. While we don’t condone street racing, the level of street racing horsepower displayed in this video is monstrous. On the one hand, we have a highly modified Lamborghini Gallardo advertising the capability to produce 1750-horsepower. In lane two, we have a similarly equipped Nissan GT-R boasting over 1500-horsepower. Can a lowly Nissan hold its own against this legendary Italian? Underground Racing (Charlotte, N.C.) has worked their magic on the Lambo. Beginning with extensive engine upgrades and a pair of twin billet 62-millimeter turbochargers, Underground Racing treated the Gallardo to a Read More

Nissan GT-R Nismo vs Dodge Challenger Hellcat 1/4 Mile Drag Racing

April 10th, 2015

We’ve got some great heads up drag racing at ZMAX Dragway with a 2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo running against a Dodge Challenger Hellcat. The Hellcat was running a set of wider drag radial tires while the Nismo GT-R was all stock.   The races were close with each taking wins,  the Nismo GT-R running 11.1 @ 124.8 MPH vs the Hellcat at 11.2 @ 125.3 MPH and the Hellcat at 11.1 @ 124.4 MPH and the Nismo at 11.2 @ 124.3 MPH. The 60′ time at 1.73 for the Nismo GT-R was due to bad track prep and was a bit off from Read More
