Infiniti vs. GT-R – Street Hits

October 5th, 2019

by: Julianna Baron So, here’s the sit rep: We have an Infiniti G35 that looks (inside and out) like it just came from the junk yard. The interior (and wiring) is torn up and the exterior looks like it has been in a demolition derby. It is rough. Thing is, it has undergone an engine upgrade and it has a big turbo strapped to it. Sure, it ain’t the neatest job but it’s getting 1,000hp to the wheels. That’s according to the owner. In an effort to quiet the naysayers, he has called out a modified Nissan R35 GT-R. Unlike the Read More

Nitrous McLaren vs. Whipple CTS-V, Big Turbo R35 GT-R

September 9th, 2019

This clip takes us south of the border for some hotly contested roll racing hits on the interstate. Without further ado, let’s have a gander at the competitors. Multiple camera angles make the cheese mo’ binding. Camera Car 1 is an R35 Nissan GT-R with a Garrett 3582 (62-millimeter) turbocharger. It is capable of making 1,250hp. Camera Car 2 is a thumping Cadillac CTS-V3 that has been modified with a camshaft upgrade, cylinder heads and a Whipple supercharger upgrade. It also has a 200hp shot of nitrous. It can churn out 1,200hp. Camera Car 3 is a McLaren (1,300+hp) with Read More

Most Expensive GT-R Ever

August 22nd, 2019

The 2020 Nissan GT-R NISMO version will go down in history as the most expensive (new) Nissan to date. Affectionately named Godzilla for its prowess in racing and national heritage, the GT-R has long been the flagship of the Nissan lineup. With a reasonable sticker price and top-tier performance features, the GT-R is a favorite among racing enthusiasts of almost every ilk. The 2020 Nismo GT-R will offer a few new items to justify the jump in sticker price. At just over $212k, this version of the Japanese supercar remains pretty reasonably priced for the segment. New features include: The Read More

10-Second Jeep Trackhawk – Roll and Dig Racing

June 4th, 2019

Hello racing fans and welcome to Street Car Takeover (Chi-town) for a day of roll racing and dig racing. The focal point of this video is an all-wheel drive SUV (with a few bolt-ons) that is set to run amuck among such entries as the Nissan GT-R and the daunting Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. Certainly, the Jeep Trackhawk is well equipped to handle sports cars of evert variety. Starting with a big supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 engine, this is the most powerful SUV ever produced. From the factory, this slick looking grocery-getter makes over 700hp, can accelerate from 0 to 60 Read More

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
