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

T1 GT-R Sets New U.S. Quarter-Mile Record

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. I know that I’ve said it before but it bears repeating; Read More

Roll Racing Finals – TX2K16

March 21st, 2016

This is Day 2 of TX2K16 and the Roll Racing Finals featuring the Super Sport, Sport, and Unlimited Classes. There are tons of Lamborghinis and GT-Rs screaming through the half-mile with some reaching speeds of more than 200 mph. These are some of the most elite level roll racers that you will ever see. You don’t want to miss this one. After the roll racing is finished, some big names roll onto the track for the drag racing test and tune session. Gidi’s Alpha G and T1’s GT-R showed up to do battle against some high-flying Supras, killer Corvettes, and Read More

Arizona Street Racing

March 15th, 2016

This is 1/4-mile street racing Arizona style – fast paced, organized, and competitive. This contest is of the ‘run-what-you-brung’ single elimination variety with no classifications. Who ever shows up with the best setup and manages to get down the track ahead of the competition until the final round wins the money. Easy peazy lemon squeazy? Not in this field; check it out. In the first round you have a 2.3-liter supercharged Mustang eating up a Nissan GT-R with bolt-on modifications. Next there is a small block powered Chevrolet Monza with nitrous that surprisingly smokes a Corvette ZR-1 and a Fox Read More

World Record Quarter-Mile Pass for Nissan GT-R

March 2nd, 2016

You don’t want to miss this world record setting 1/4-mile pass (for a Nissan GT-R) of 7.265-seconds at 204 mph. Bahrain based EKanoo Racing has added yet another world record to their trophy cabinet with their T1 Race Development built R35 GT-R. With the GT-R 1/4-mile battle heating up, the exact setup of the EKanoo version of Godzilla is being kept under tight wraps but output was previously estimated at 2,276hp. A serious response to this world record setting performance is expected from U.S. based AMS Performance. They have kept their latest project (the Alpha G) on the down-low as Read More

Godzilla Takes Two Classes at Dallas Street Car Takeover

February 24th, 2016

Godzilla showed up at the Dallas Street Car Takeover and wreaked havoc in two-classes of racing action. While it wasn’t the giant mechanical monster that wrecked Tokyo, the results were no less catastrophic. Godzilla was manifest in the form of the familiar 1200hp T1 Nissan GT-R. By the time smoke cleared Lamborghinis, Supras, Cadillacs, Mustangs, and all other challengers were strewn about like so much rubbish (not really but you get the jest). With its all-wheel drivetrain, the GT-R demonstrated superior traction in winning the King of the Bakery (roll racing) crown and the 9.50 ET class. The team at Read More

St. Louis Street Racing Action

February 11th, 2016

You can find me in St. Louie, where the street racing action reigns all-day…and night. The “strip” is in an abandoned industrial park and the racing is crazy! Some of the baddest and best street racers in the Midwest show up and show out in some elite level heads-up dig racing. Big name racers like the Beater Bomb, the LSX Willys Jeep, and FR8TRAIN line up for bragging rights and possibly a little cash but there are plenty of other racers making their debut appearance on DragTimes. There’s a nitrous injected Malibu, a supercharged Camaro SS, and a LSx powered Read More

800HP Nissan SUV

February 10th, 2016

This video is for all you full size SUV lovers. It features a brand spanking new Nissan Patrol with plenty of room for six adults. Al Anabi Performance (AAP), from Doha, Qatar, has skillfully prepared this sport-ute-sleeper to take on Lamborghinis. It’s pretty amazing but I don’t know if it’s quite up to that monumental task – not yet, anyway. Hold your horses – could I have spoken too soon. This grocery-getter has a factory fresh 4.8-liter inline 6-cylinder that has undergone a connecting rod and piston upgrade. It also has a 42-millimeter GT48 turbo attached and the transmission has Read More

Wild, Wild West Street Racing

January 21st, 2016

This clip details a cowboy’s night out on the streets of Phoenix, Arizona. Instead of horses and six-guns, these cowboys are packing forced air induction and nitrous oxide. It’s night-time dig racing on the highways and byways of one of the west’s largest cities. This action is insane – don’t miss it. There’s a hood scoop with a nitrous V8 Chevy Monza attached to it. This thing is more show than go and gets dusted by one Fox Body nitrous Mustang before beating another. At any rate, it’s refreshing to see a Monza again; you hardly ever see them anymore. There’s Read More
