Check out this fantastic looking emerald green fifth-generation Camaro. This thing will have you green with envy – street envy, that is. A Hellion twin turbo kit with an AMS 2000 boost controller, a Psycho performance tuner, a camshaft upgrade, and a 3600 RPM stall converter are among the highlighted modifications on this bad Bowtie. The engine is a stock 6.2-liter. The Camaro makes short work of the first two competitors; a souped-up TT Infiniti G35 and a 685hp supercharged Ford Lightning F150 pickup. The final matchup proved to be a bit more of a challenge, though. The 750hp Mitsubishi Read More
This video brings you three big-boy street cars locked in a heads-up roll racing extravaganza. It comes to you from just “south of the border”, where anything goes (as far as street racing is concerned). The old saying goes, “What happens in Vegas – Stays in Vegas” but what happens south of the border – shows up on DragTimes.com This ménage a trois of street racing consists of a TT Lamborghini Gallardo; skillfully and expertly prepared by the Lambo specialists at Underground Racing. It is producing a maximum of 1,500hp. Next up is the little Nissan that could. Affectionately known Read More
So, you want the convenience of a small crossover SUV with the performance of what might arguably be the baddest Japanese sports car ever made? You need space for the wife, kids, and all their gear and you want the acceleration and handling characteristics of a high-priced sports car but you probably think this is impossible. Not so fast – check out this video of the new Nissan Juke-R 2.0 duking it out with the Nissan flagship GT-R – and yes, it is for real. Dissatisfied with the 485hp mill in the original Juke-R, our friends at Nissan have opted Read More
BMW has come up with something special this year at Pebble Beach with the world premiere of the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R – a car that celebrates both the 40th anniversary of BMW in North America and racing success of the BMW 3.0 CSL back in 1975.
I never saw a finer looking gaggle of GT-Rs than the one brought forth by the TopSpeed Motorsports (TSM) team, during the 2015 Buschur Shootout at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio. However, as we can all agree, it ain’t how you look – it’s what you got under the hood. Under the hood is where TSM does their best work. You want evidence? How about a world record E.T. (for a Nissan GT-R) in the 1/4-mile? Oh yeah, that’ll work. The TCM team took 1st and 2nd place in the GT-R Quick classification (with the Alpha16 car), posting four Read More
Fourteen of the baddest street machines in the West have gathered at an undisclosed location in the Colorado night. Each of these teams has plans to take someone else’s cash, eat their cookies, and claim bragging rights as king of the Colorado streets. All-wheel drive, front-wheel drive, and rear-wheel drive – old cars, new cars, and even trucks will do battle to see who can claim the number-one spot in the 2015 edition of Colorado Cash Days. The highlights of this feature video include a 800hp 1969 Camaro, a beautiful red Chevy Nova with a 400-cubic-inch engine and an 80mm Read More
This skilled videographer has managed to capture some very competitive head-to-head roll racing on a closed airstrip. There are representations from many of the big exotic manufacturers – Porsche, Lamborghini, Ferrari, and McLaren. The domestic bad boys showed up, too. There are Dodge Vipers and Challengers, Chevrolet Camaros and Corvettes, Cadillac CTS-Vs, and a scarce few Ford Mustangs. The imports include some Nissan GT-Rs and Toyota Supras (it’s alright to assume they are turbocharged). There is even an old ice cream truck and a 700+hp Volkswagen Golf. These lucky competitors line up at one end of the airstrip and start Read More
This epic battle between two potent street machines is reported to have been a long-time in the making. This time the racing is of the “dig” variety, making strategy even more important. While this is indeed a battle between import and domestic, it could also be classified as a contest between a classic sports car and a modern supercar. It is one that involves an older Fox Body Mustang and a late-model Nissan GT-R. Both these competitors have radically modified their proverbial steeds. The Fox Body has a built, balanced, and blueprinted small block Chevy with a healthy assist from Read More
Some details about the upcoming 2016 Lamborghini Huracan Spyder have leaked out from an order sheet showing that the Huracan will have a fabric soft top instead of a folding hard top mechansim. The price list included in this post shows the soft top is available in black, brown and red colors. A soft top in the new Huracan is a big surprise considering it’s competitors all have folding hard tops including the McLaren 650S Spider and Ferrari 458/488 Spider.
Nick Eklund’s 7,000-pound Ram 1500 pickup is dressed to kill, in a set of Hoosier drag slicks with four-doors and a 2-inch lowering kit. This monster is all about eating up the competition with a side of asphalt. As you can see in this clip, this Ram is quick out of the hole and it blasts through the trap. All of that power and torque comes from a 5.9-liter Cummins Turbo diesel with a stock block, a Hamilton camshaft, Manley pushrods, an Innovative Diesel Tune, and a Fire Funk S366 turbocharger mated to a Ryan Wilson 480 transmission and a Read More
