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

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

Rotary Powered Datsun Posts 8-second Quarter

April 9th, 2015

Talk about your strange combinations; here we have a ‘70-ish Datsun B210 with an alcohol burning Mazda 13B rotary engine and massive Borg-Warner 75-millimeter turbocharger under the hood. Despite looking like your less than average old “beater”, this strange combination of Japanese antiques posts a personal best of 8.164-seconds @ 165.864 mph for the quarter-mile. It is tubbed out to handle a set of 10.5-inch wide Strange Racing wheels (wrapped in racing slicks, of course) and shifting duties are left to a clutchless G-Force transmission. You have gotta’ see this thing wiping the track with $100k Nissan GT-Rs during the Read More

Dodge Ram Crushes GT-R in 1/4-Mile Pass

March 27th, 2015

You have to see this to believe it! This rusted four-wheel drive 1988 Dodge Ram crushes a modified 2013 Nissan GT-R on the way to posting a 10.993 @ 122 mph. Nobody expected this to happen. The GT-R has bee tuned to 650-horsepower, has numerous aftermarket performance parts installed, and is running premium racing fuel. Nevertheless, this bulky pickup walks away in the quarter-mile. OUCH! The Dodge Ram (nicknamed the Ramaro) is packing a few surprises. The Mopar powertrain is gone and a GM 6.0-liter LS2 V8 with a PT8891 Precision turbocharger, massive intercooler, and 100 shot nitrous have taken Read More
