3000HP Alpha Queen – 7-Second 200 MPH Quarter-Mile

March 14th, 2019

The Nissan GT-R World Cup. This is the premiere event for the entry-level sports car affectionately known as Godzilla. On this drag strip – today – some of the most capable Japanese high-performance machines in the world will put it all on the line for cash and bragging rights. Hold on to your hats for this one! AMS (Automotorsports, Inc.) is out in force with some of their baddest builds, but a particular entry catches my eye. It is copper/chrome and when it accelerates; well, it sounds like the world will end. This thing is amazing. It is capable of Read More

Stock Motor GT-R – First 9-Second Pass

March 13th, 2019

This clip introduces us to cute and cool Brooke Berini as she posts her first ever 9-second (quarter-mile) pass in her stock motor (and transmission) 2009 Nissan GT-R. What is truly amazing is that the car has more than 80k on the odometer, has logged over 80 quarter-mile passes, and is daily driven. The other thing that stands out about this GT-R is the spine-grabbing pink chrome paint job. Wow! First there’s Brooke. She’s cute like baby-sister but, when she begins her interview, she sounds like a seasoned racer. You gotta love that! With only minor modifications, this car is Read More

1500HP ETS Nissan GT-R Street Monster

March 5th, 2019

Prepared by Top Speed Motorsports, this pavement eating monster of a 2017 Nissan GT-R is ravenous on the track and respectable on the street. In breaking with the Godzilla moniker, Andrew’s GT-R more closely resembles the Hulk. Calm and cordial David Banner by day, but you wouldn’t like him when he’s angry. This car is running a prototypical stock turbo manifold kit from ETS. The engine is a 3.8-liter V6 with a billet crankshaft. The intake manifold is a dual-injector unit from AMS with some ID fuel injectors. The controller is a MoTec unit tuned by Taylor Lear and the Read More

Mustang GT500 Kenne Bell vs. GT-R and McLaren – Street Hits

February 19th, 2019

Driving your friend’s GT500 on the streets of Mexico is the absolute best time to encounter a couple of brass ring supercars out trolling for a victim. Even in the darkest of night, the Ford seems outmatched by these top tier sports cars. This is easily seen by all on hand. What is unforeseen is the fact that this (daily driven) Shelby GT500 Mustang has been favorably modified for just such a scenario as this. Take a look. The stock engine and transmission are easy prey for the exotics but a Kenne Bell 2.8-liter blower changes the odds. Power was Read More

GT-R Record Assault – ETS and Gidi Join Forces

February 14th, 2019

Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) and Gidi Chamdi (one of the fastest men to ever climb into a Nissan GT-R) have teamed up to produce an all-new GT-R entry that not only boasts 3,000hp, but also figures to be a factor in the back-and-forth saga of GT-R World Record Quarter-Mile passes. Despite being a fresh build, Gidi and the ETS crew post a 7.24-second elapsed time (@ 191 mph) on the very first pass. Decades of experience and a wealth of racing knowledge certainly helped to put the new car within .750-seconds of a GT-R World Record – on the very Read More

$8K Street Race – GT-R vs. Roush Mustang

January 4th, 2019

Frankly, I haven’t got a clue if these guys are street racers who gamble or gamblers who street race. Either way, I’m sure somebody will take exception to it and that’s okay. One thing is for sure – these guys have built some fast cars and they are willing to throw fat stacks of cash down to get a race. Our first car is a Ford Mustang that has been heavily modified. The upper (supercharger) pulley has been upgraded, the exhaust system has been replaced with a less restrictive system, the fuel system has been upgraded, a performance tune has Read More

Litchfield Nissan GT-R vs. Porsche 911 Turbo S – Drag Race

January 3rd, 2019

In case you were wondering about the Litchfield moniker; they are a one-stop performance house for European and Japanese vehicles. They manufacture and sell everything from turbo kits to suspension components. They are keen in the world of high-performance vehicle modification, tuning, development, and testing, as well. The Nissan featured in this clip is a Litchfield Track Edition package car. While it is not one of their most extreme packages, it is well suited for our racing today. In this video, all three cars are powerful street versions, but none are race cars. This keeps things more competitive and interesting, Read More

New Nissan GT-R Record

December 28th, 2018

Hello race fans and welcome to the Haltech World Cup Finals for another GT-R World Record. Seems like there’s a GT-R record falling every time I go to the dragstrip these days. This time it is the record for elapsed time in the quarter-mile; for a GT-R with the turbocharger in the stock location (not the stock turbo). The pass in question was 7.08-seconds @ 208.23 mph. With help from Tony Palo (T1 Race Development), this fugly GT-R with no openings in the grille and a matte black finish, is being campaigned by George Dodworth and the Clutch Masters crew Read More

July Nights – Top 10 Street Hits

August 24th, 2018

Warning! Bowtie on bowtie violence visible in this media. Although every one of the big three U.S. automakers are represented, along with some quite impressive imports, there are multiple Chevy on Chevy affairs. You have been warned! Buckle up for some street rolls and digs from down Mexico way. A Camaro ZL1 with full bolt-ons and a camshaft upgrade versus a Corvette ZR1 with full bolt-ons (700hp) in numerous roll hits. Must be some camshaft. Camaro is too much for the ‘Vette. This is a row between a 580hp Nissan GT-R Nismo with full bolt-ons and a Mercedes-Benz AMG GTS. Read More

Second Chance Racing – Motivational Drags

August 2nd, 2018

If this one don’t get you fired up – your wood must be wet! Tanner is an inspiration to me and I believe he will have a similar effect on other racers and non-racers as well. Approximately one-year ago Tanner was involved in an accident while riding his motorcycle. The bike collided with a car and Tanner was badly injured. He lost a portion of both legs and had a severe spinal injury (among other things) that prompted doctors to predict that he would never walk again and he most surely would never drive. The best that the medical profession Read More
