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

9-Second Turbo Lexus

January 18th, 2016

Now you can have it all! This video brings us a luxurious Lexus LS300 that can dart through the 1320 in only 9.32-seconds at 149 mph. This thing smokes tires like they’re going out of style and you have to see the parking lot burnouts (with a trailer attached, no less). It all begins with a built 3.0-liter 2JZ engine with upgraded pistons from Combustion Technologies; now add a mammoth Precision 7675 turbocharger. As if that weren’t enough, toss in a 125 shot of nitrous oxide and presto – you’ve got 1,000whp. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a Read More

1100HP Supra vs. 1000HP Mustang GT500

January 14th, 2016

This clip features a banging turbo Supra that is capable of hanging with some bodacious street cars and even some modified street bikes. It is equipped with a built 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine, a 91-millimeter Garrett GT55 turbocharger, and it is running E85 fuel. The combination is good for a whopping 1,100hp. He goes up against some pretty heavy hitters in the street (roll) racing venue. The first is a Shelby Mustang GT500 (850whp) with a modified supercharger as well as some upgrades to the intake, throttle body, and exhaust. The second competitor is driving a GTR (600whp) with a Read More

Witch Hunt! 1100HP Toyota Powered Corvette

January 5th, 2016

When your eyes come to rest upon a bright red Corvette Stingray, with its classic lines and low, athletic stance, the last thing that you expect to find under the hood is a 2JZ Toyota Supra engine. You might be shocked to discover how many racing enthusiasts are downright offended by this unique setup. It has even been dubbed the “Hater Maker” because so many people have taken exception to an imported power plant in a classic American muscle car. I say, live and let live! This beauty has a fresh 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder with billet main caps, upgraded pistons Read More

Midwest Roll Racing – Import Power

December 31st, 2015

Time to take it out to the Midwest – err, Mexico that is – for some high octane roll racing. Don’t miss the best that this night of street racing had to offer as two of the “big dogs” of roll racing step up to claim some corn-fed bragging rights. These two cruisers are equipped with state-of-the-art turbocharger systems and they are really pumping out the power (930whp from the Nissan and 820whp for the Supra). The Nissan GT-R has been modified with an AMS Alpha 10 turbocharger package. It features custom fabricated intake and exhaust manifolds, aluminum intake and Read More

Drag Racing – Turbo Toyota Supra vs TT Chevy 1500

December 16th, 2015

Do you like super-competitive heads-up dig racing? If the answer is yes, then you sure don’t want to miss this video. In the near lane we have the infamous Red Dragon Chevrolet 1500 pickup and in the far lane, we have the Real Street 1,500hp turbocharged Toyota Supra. This is going to be a great race! The battle between souped-up import and domestic vehicles rages on. The Supra has a built 3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder engine and a honking big turbocharger. It’s a lightweight import making a mountain of horsepower. The Dragon is carrying a bit more weight but it has Read More

Toyota Powered 240SX Runs 8.09 @ 175 MPH

December 11th, 2015

To be precise, this Toyota 2JZ powered Nissan 240SX ran a 1/4-mile pass at 8.09, then ended the day with a nice relaxed drive home! I’ve gotta admire a street car that can run low E.T passes all day and then drive home at night. That racing Channel and Real Street Racing build and maintain this skillfully built concoction of Japanese get-up-and-go. We can’t wait to see this car dip lower and lower in elapsed times and higher and higher in trap speed. The TRC 240 has a built 9:1 3.0-liter 2JZ inline-six-cylinder engine with Manley internals and a Porting Read More

Cash Days – Dig Racing Mayhem in the Midwest

December 10th, 2015

It’s dig racing on the streets of the Midwest and all the big boys have come out to play. There are big block powered Chevrolets, turbocharged Mustangs and Camaros, and even some highly modified imports. Buckle your safety harness for this one folks, because the action is fast and furious. Whether these street torpedoes arrive on just tires (or tires and trailers), they come to do business and claim large cash prizes. Tons of turbochargers, serious superchargers, massive cubic inches, and the nitrous is flowing freely. There are cars here in every conceivable configuration and virtually every one is a Read More

America’s Fastest Scion

November 25th, 2015

Get a load of Pure Automotive Performance’s lime green FR-S campaigning at the World Cup Finals in Maryland. This is one artfully crafted drag car. It ends up with a North America record setting 9.2-second quarter-mile run at 150 mph. Under the hood of this FR-S you’ll find a turbocharged 3.0-liter 2JZ (Toyota) engine being force fed copious amounts of air via a Precision 67-millimeter turbocharger. The custom crafted intercooler and piping are immaculate on this ride and so is the interior. Pure Automotive certainly knows how to put the nuts and bolts together. Power for this fantastic looking ride Read More

Turbo 2JZ-GTE Equipped Mustang

November 23rd, 2015

What the …? This great looking Ford Mustang doesn’t have a built 429 Cobra Jet and there’s no turbocharged 5.3-liter LS motor. Instead, this little American beauty has a junkyard Toyota Supra 2JZ-GTE thrashing about under the hood. What’s even more interesting is that this thing made it all the way to the semi-final round of the Kansas City F-Body Event. The 2JZ-GTE is an inline 6-cylinder and the one in this pony car is bone stock. A massive 76-millimeter turbocharger does most of the work. It is accompanied by a Pro EFI controller and power is transferred to the Read More
