3700HP Street Showdown – Lambo, GT-R, and Corvette

August 17th, 2015

This video brings you three big-boy street cars locked in a heads-up roll racing extravaganza. It comes to you from just “south of the border”, where anything goes (as far as street racing is concerned). The old saying goes, “What happens in Vegas – Stays in Vegas” but what happens south of the border – shows up on DragTimes.com This ménage a trois of street racing consists of a TT Lamborghini Gallardo; skillfully and expertly prepared by the Lambo specialists at Underground Racing. It is producing a maximum of 1,500hp. Next up is the little Nissan that could. Affectionately known Read More

Nissan Roll Racing Challenge – GT-R Nismo vs Juke-R 2.0

August 14th, 2015

So, you want the convenience of a small crossover SUV with the performance of what might arguably be the baddest Japanese sports car ever made? You need space for the wife, kids, and all their gear and you want the acceleration and handling characteristics of a high-priced sports car but you probably think this is impossible. Not so fast – check out this video of the new Nissan Juke-R 2.0 duking it out with the Nissan flagship GT-R – and yes, it is for real. Dissatisfied with the 485hp mill in the original Juke-R, our friends at Nissan have opted Read More

Alpha16 Nissan GT-R Sets New World Record in the Quarter-Mile

August 13th, 2015

I never saw a finer looking gaggle of GT-Rs than the one brought forth by the TopSpeed Motorsports (TSM) team, during the 2015 Buschur Shootout at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio. However, as we can all agree, it ain’t how you look – it’s what you got under the hood. Under the hood is where TSM does their best work. You want evidence? How about a world record E.T. (for a Nissan GT-R) in the 1/4-mile? Oh yeah, that’ll work. The TCM team took 1st and 2nd place in the GT-R Quick classification (with the Alpha16 car), posting four Read More

Colorado Cash Days – Insane Street Racing

August 12th, 2015

Fourteen of the baddest street machines in the West have gathered at an undisclosed location in the Colorado night. Each of these teams has plans to take someone else’s cash, eat their cookies, and claim bragging rights as king of the Colorado streets. All-wheel drive, front-wheel drive, and rear-wheel drive – old cars, new cars, and even trucks will do battle to see who can claim the number-one spot in the 2015 edition of Colorado Cash Days. The highlights of this feature video include a 800hp 1969 Camaro, a beautiful red Chevy Nova with a 400-cubic-inch engine and an 80mm Read More

Airstrip Assault Supercar Showdown

August 11th, 2015

This skilled videographer has managed to capture some very competitive head-to-head roll racing on a closed airstrip. There are representations from many of the big exotic manufacturers – Porsche, Lamborghini, Ferrari, and McLaren. The domestic bad boys showed up, too. There are Dodge Vipers and Challengers, Chevrolet Camaros and Corvettes, Cadillac CTS-Vs, and a scarce few Ford Mustangs. The imports include some Nissan GT-Rs and Toyota Supras (it’s alright to assume they are turbocharged). There is even an old ice cream truck and a 700+hp Volkswagen Golf. These lucky competitors line up at one end of the airstrip and start Read More

Street Stampede Import vs. Domestic

August 10th, 2015

This epic battle between two potent street machines is reported to have been a long-time in the making. This time the racing is of the “dig” variety, making strategy even more important. While this is indeed a battle between import and domestic, it could also be classified as a contest between a classic sports car and a modern supercar. It is one that involves an older Fox Body Mustang and a late-model Nissan GT-R. Both these competitors have radically modified their proverbial steeds. The Fox Body has a built, balanced, and blueprinted small block Chevy with a healthy assist from Read More

1900HP Lambo takes on a 1400HP GTR on the Streets of Atlanta

August 4th, 2015

Here is a little street racing from down in my neck of the woods. This is how they “roll” in the A-T-L (get it? roll racing?) This insanely fast pack of street cars is ripping through the streets of Atlanta like a hot knife through butter. Atlanta hasn’t been burnt up like this since General Sherman came to town during the Civil War. You have got to see this video! The lead dog in this rabid pack is a 1900hp Lamgorghini Gallardo prepared by Underground Racing. This guy is trampling everything, including some pretty impressive super-bikes. Next is a 1400hp Nissan Read More

700HP AWD Civic Taking It to the Streets

July 22nd, 2015

Check out this clip! If you really want to get the jump on the competition, try switching to all-wheel drive. This innovative cat salvaged the traction-happy components from an earlier model Honda vehicle, and then did whatever was necessary to deliver 700hp and 583-lb.-ft. of torque to the four corners. He certainly gets out of the “roll” quicker than the 1,000hp Mustang Fox but can’t hold the Ford off at the midway point. Here is a bit of the Civic setup: Begin with a stock block 1.6-liter Honda V-TEC engine with forged rods and internals, add a Precision 6262 Turbocharger Read More

2100HP TT Lamborghini Huracan Busts 200MPH

July 13th, 2015

Press the PLAY button and say hello to what is being billed as the world’s first twin turbocharged Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4. This lime green beauty showed up at the Texas Invitational Automotive Airfield Exhibition presented by the Texas Speed Syndicate, all the way down in Houston, Texas. Then the gang at Underground Racing proceeded to show out – wrenching the X Package equipped Italian screamer to speeds of over 200mph. Right “out of the box” the Huracan is no trifling street car. It is outfitted with a 5.2-liter V10 engine that produces 602hp. It is an all-wheel drive, 2-passenger, mid-engine Read More

The Worlds Quickest and Fastest R35 GT-R

July 7th, 2015

Alpha Performance, based in Chicago, Illinois, has done it again. You may recall that their high-powered numero-uno R35 GT-R already won the title “King of the Streets” at the recent Texas Invitational, hosted by the Texas Speed Syndicate. Since then, they have been busy trying their best to blow the engine up in this potent Nissan. Now any racer knows that stock engines are not built to withstand the rigors of forced air induction over long periods of time – especially when output levels reach over 2,000hp. Normally these extreme output levels would require an engine refresh (if not replacement) Read More
