World’s Fastest Cadillac

March 28th, 2017

What does one do when the factory supercharged 565hp engine just isn’t tickling his (or her) fancy anymore? One bolts on a monstrous 106-millimeter turbocharger (with all the trimmings) and triples one’s horsepower rating is what one does! Such is the case with what is being touted as the fastest Cadillac on the planet. This car is rolling out with a Pro Speed prepared (turbocharger, intercooler, tuning) 400 cubic-inch LSX engine. The car is capable of producing more than 2,000hp and is running in the low sevens despite this being its maiden voyage (so to speak) with all the new Read More

Raw Roll Racing – Import vs. Domestic

March 28th, 2017

Fans of roll racing on the streets will love this video like a fat man loves apple pie (ala mode). It has it all – procharged, turbocharged, and even naturally aspirated (N/A) cars. This night of roll racing action is taking place on the streets of San Antonio, Mexico (of course). Only a few minutes into this one and I could tell that there were some pretty heavy-hitters on hand. It also seemed like most of the cars were evenly matched (according to power) for a competitive night of racing. Let’s take a look! First up is a Corvette Z06 Read More

Twin Turbo Ford GT Crushes World Record

March 28th, 2017

Look out Bugatti; there’s a new top speed world record holder in the mile and it blasts off behind a familiar blue oval. No, it’s not a strictly stock production car but the level of speed displayed by this Ford GT during the Texas Mile event has many speed enthusiasts wondering what this car is capable of when given a more spacious course. The 2005 Ford GT, prepared by M2K Motorsports, lined up unceremoniously and ran a 293.6 mph pass from a standing start and it did it in just one-mile. This is good enough to annihilate the standing one-mile Read More

New Half-Mile Top Speed World Record

March 25th, 2017

Greetings drag racing fans and speed enthusiasts of every ilk. Please join the DragTimes staff in celebrating a brand spanking new World Record Top Speed for the 1/2-mile! It seems that our counterparts in Dubai have once again been busy with staying on the cutting edge in Nissan GT-R modification. While everyone in the U.S. has been busy with trying to break into the sixes in the 1/4-mile dig (and getting it done!), Alpha Logic (a Dubai based firm) decided to go ahead and bust the 1/2-mile world record with their Alpha K GT-R. In all fairness, it wouldn’t be Read More

No Prep Turbo V8 Nissan 240sx

March 25th, 2017

This video features exactly the type of vehicle that gets my blood pumping. I love taking a small and lightweight, rear-wheel drive car and putting in a big, V8 engine with at least one power adder. If you do it right – and this guy has apparently done it just right – you can win a lot of races (cash) on the street and strip. For this type of hybrid build, the Nissan 240 has long been a favorite of amateur and street racers. There are four major reasons for this: The sharp looking little import bodies are readily available Read More

Taking it to the Streets – TX2K17

March 22nd, 2017

So, this is what happens when a few thousand of the baddest street cars on the planet show up for the premier street racing event in the U.S. and – you guessed it – take it to the streets! There is something in this video for everyone. There are small cars, big cars, coupes and sedans, imports (from every corner of the globe) and domestics, naturally aspirated cars, turbocharged cars, blown cars, nitrous injected cars – there are even electric cars, SUVs, and pickups. If you are into roll racing on the street, this clip is for you. This production Read More

New World Record – 6-Second GT-R

March 21st, 2017

Greetings drag racing fans and all other aficionados of speed. This is a video that you simply cannot miss! We finally have a 6-second GT-R (and the first all-wheel drive car to ever dip below 7-seconds in the 1/4-mile). One of the big time players in turbo modification, AMS performance, and one of the most talented owner/drivers (Gideon “Gidi” Chamdi) on the circuit collaborated in this long-time endeavor that finally came into fruition during last weekend’s TX2K17. Gidi’s Nissan, known as the Alpha G, uses a unique turbocharger setup that relocates the forced air induction to a lower point in Read More

Street Battle – Dodge Viper vs. Porsche 911

March 16th, 2017

Hello drag racing fans and speed enthusiasts of every variety and welcome to an epic contest between pure performance and overwhelming finesse. This competition transcends the long-time rivalry between imported and domestic vehicles and steps over into a realm where handcrafted elegance meets homespun horsepower. Before I get any deeper into the cars, this contest is taking place on a sunny stretch of highway south of the border. The action is of the roll racing variety. There are multiple passes and multiple camera angles. As you have probably deduced by now, the beast part of this equation is a 2016 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
