Aussie Street Racing – R32 & R35 GT-Rs

June 11th, 2016

This video begins with a heart-stopping ride-along in an 1,150hp GT-R. You get a hint that this is street racing from “down-under” by the right-hand drive and peculiar accents. The R35 is running a 3.5-liter V6 engine and making 42-pounds of boost. The R32 is equipped with a 3.2-liter inline 6-cylinder engine, a giant ProMod 88-millimeter turbocharger, and a TH400 automatic GM transmission. The combo is producing between 1,200 and 1,300hp.

We took a quick walk around the new 2017 Nissan GT-R over at Weston Nissan, the new GT-R gets a 20HP bump from it’s Twin Turbocharged 3.8L V8 to 565HP along with a quite a few interior and external changes.  As per Nissan the retuned suspension offers a smoother ride.

Roll Racing – TT Lamborghini Goes 213 MPH

May 2nd, 2016

This car bears the moniker ‘MULLET’ after the owner/driver’s hairstyle. This particular hairstyle is often described as ‘business in the front – party in the back’. Well, this Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera must save the party for the street because on the strip (during this TX2K event) it was all about business. There are multiple 200+ mph passes. As impressive as a stock Superleggera is, you’ll never squeeze 213 mph out of it in the half-mile. This car has been modified with an Underground Racing Twin Turbo Package. The package includes twin billet Precision 62-millimeter turbochargers with Tial wastegates and Read More

U.S. GT-R Quarter-Mile Record Falls

April 11th, 2016

Well, it seems that the Nissan GT-R 1/4-mile U.S. record battle has jumped off as expected. Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS), one of the world’s leading experts in turbocharged high-performance research and development, has posted a new U.S. record 1/4-mile pass of 7.32-seconds @ 196 mph. That’s pretty impressive but when you consider that the car lifted a cylinder head during the final run (at 60-pounds of boost), it seems ever more outstanding. Key improvements to the ETS Nissan GT-R include the twin-turbos, which have been upgraded from 72-millimeter units to 76-millimeter, a new Syvecs ECU/4WD Controller for improved tuning capabilities Read More

AMS Performance GT-R – Quarter-Mile Killer

March 29th, 2016

When it comes to horsepower, high speeds, and record shattering passes, there are few firms that can compete with AMS Performance and their wildly modified Nissan GT-Rs. Well, now they are getting in the 1/4-mile game with this purpose-built GT-R, called the Alpha G (the owner’s name is Gidi).  This video brings us the car’s debut testing session that took place during TX2K16. The AMS crew is pretty close-mouthed regarding the setup but they did say that the turbos were massive Garrett GTX units and the engine is a custom design that they are tweaking. Horsepower is estimated to be Read More

March 23rd, 2016

TX2K events seem to be where records are broken and this video confirms that assumption. Tony Palo and the boys at T1 Race Development have been busy upgrading their beast of a Nissan GT-R. With a fresh set of slicks (for the front wheels), the all-wheel drive GT-R was taking no prisoners during TX2K16. On only the second pass with the fresh setup, T1 inched closer to the GT-R world record as they set a new U.S. record with an ET of 7.43-seconds at 196 mph in the 1/4-mile.
