2JZ Powered S10 Pickup Runs Sixes

April 10th, 2017

At Lights Out 8, down in South Georgia, there was certainly no shortage of S10 pickups . S10 pickup carcasses are everywhere, so it’s relatively easy to pick up a pickup and throw in an LS small block or even a big block and put down a pretty decent pass on the street or strip. Well, the owner of the truck featured in this video chose a slightly different path. Maybe there were no LS engines available in his neck of the woods, perhaps he is a V8-hater, or peradventure that he was going for a lightweight theme – I Read More

1500HP 2JZ Corolla – GT-R Killer

April 7th, 2017

How bad has this got to suck? First, you pay over $100k for a high-performance Nissan GT-R, dump a bunch more cash in it to make it even faster, then carry it out to the drag strip. All sounds great so far, huh? So, you’re having a pretty good day, then you line up against an eighties Toyota Corolla Hatch. I mean the ‘Yota looks alright with its backyard graphics and big tires but you got this from start to finish, right? Wrong! The Toyota takes the hole shot from you and gaps your behind by several lengths! Ouch! What Read More

Half-Mile Blowout – Lamborghini vs. Nissan

March 31st, 2017

Hello racing fans and welcome to the Rafael Hernandez Airport in sunny Puerto Rico. Today’s action is of the 1/2-mile variety and it is particularly outstanding. Some of the baddest cars and most capable performance firms are on hand to try and claim the top speed crown. Underground Racing (UR) is well represented by the star of the event – a black Lamborghini Superleggera, owned by Richard Fowler. As you know, the Superleggera is pretty potent in factory trim but Richard’s Lambo has been treated to the UR X-Package that bumps output up to the 2,000hp mark. Richard has already Read More

Angry Nissan SUV – 206 MPH Half-Mile

March 15th, 2017

This video comes to us from a far away land. The Qatar Peninsula in Western Asia provides the backdrop for this world record setting 1/2-mile pass (by an SUV). The firm responsible for this extraordinary Nissan Patrol SUV is one that should be familiar to racing enthusiasts. AAP Performance is consistently on the cutting edge in almost any area of drag racing that can be imagined. What may not be familiar to readers is the Nissan Patrol. The Patrol is only sold in North America under the Infiniti brand. It competes on other continents with the Toyota Land Cruiser, the Read More

Phoenix Streets – 18 Car Bracket

March 13th, 2017

Hello drag racing fans and aficionados! Welcome to the streets of Phoenix (Mexico) where an evening of street racing can be cold, wet, and dusty all at the same time. This may be the most diverse band of street racers ever gathered on a chilly stretch of desert highway. There are domestics and imports, muscle cars and late models, coupes and pickups, naturally aspirated cars, nitrous injected cars, turbo cars, and supercharged cars – there’s something in this video for everyone. They have come together in a contest of speed and guts to see who can claim the $3,000 grand Read More

Street Racing Compilation – Roll and Dig

February 8th, 2017

If you like racing on the streets (of Mexico); you will love this video! I almost laughed when I saw a turbocharged Volkswagen Corrado at the outset of this production – then the VW whipped a couple of Corvettes and a Camaro. The Sketchy Vert WS6 Trans Am was a little more than he bargained for but most street racers find that to be the case, All in all, this was not a bad night of roll racing for a four-banger VW. From there, it’s on to some dig racing. There are some pretty average rides to begin the night Read More

1600HP MK3 Supra – Taking it to the Streets

January 30th, 2017

They call me Ishmael – not really – but this is a whale story. Moby Dick it ain’t but a great white whale of a 1987 Toyota Supra is the star of this story. It’s not perfectly clear but I would guess that the moniker “Smiley’s White Whale” is derived from the pale paint color and the whale tail spoiler on the rear. It is perfectly clear, however, that this is no slow moving fish. It is equipped with what is often called a 1.5JZ engine (a 1JZ cylinder head on a 2JZ bottom end). It is a 3.2-liter, in-line Read More

7-Second Turbo Coyote Mustang

January 27th, 2017

Nothing sounds quite like a Mustang GT. It has a very distinctive throaty rumble that has been music to the ears of car enthusiasts for more than 50-years. The introduction of the all-aluminum, modular Coyote 5.0-liter V8 engine takes this sweet pony-car sound and makes it just a little bit sweeter by reducing overall weight and increasing performance. It is based on the same overhead cam engine block platform as the 4.6-liter but with extra reinforcement. This makes the smaller Coyote engine more durable to withstand the upgrades that will be necessary to produce horsepower levels comparable to that of Read More

Nissan 240SX – Quarter-Mile in 7.3-Seconds @ 187 MPH

January 11th, 2017

This one-of-a-kind Nissan 240SX has been dubbed the Red Rocket and is being touted as the fastest 240SX in the world. The real question that I want to ask is: Just how much of a Nissan is this Red Rocket? Don’t get it twisted – a low 7-second quarter-mile pass at 187 mph is pretty impressive under any circumstances – but does this little rear-wheel drive coupe have a big American V8 pining away under the bonnet or has it remained stock to accomplish this awe inspiring feat? The answer is…neither. Instead of taking the easy way to a low Read More
