650HP BMW M5 – Street Rolls

July 12th, 2017

I just love a luxury car that can pull its weight in a street race. At the risk of revealing my advanced age, I’ll tell you that the luxury street racer bug first bit me when I built a huge 1978 Cadillac Coupe de Ville and implanted a nitrous injected big block Chevy running gear. It was fun but also heavy. This 2014 BMW M5 is fun but it certainly ain’t that heavy. The Bavarian Motor Works are globally recognized as leaders in the niche of elegant sports cars. The “M” in M5 refers to the BMW Motorsports division which Read More

Track Test – 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo

June 25th, 2017

A proper weapon of a car, lighter, more powerful, more exclusive, and faster are just a few of the adjectives being assigned to the new 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo. The racing competition describes the GT-R in different terms. “Godzilla” comes to mind. That’s a pretty accurate representation since the GT-R (like Godzilla) is from Japan and is very scary. Oh – by the way – it also has been known to terrorize big cities and small villages alike. The Nissan GT-R is an all-wheel drive supercar that can be had for around $110K – $175K. Make no mistake, it is Read More

New Half-Mile GT-R Top Speed Record

June 19th, 2017

Congratulations to Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) and English Racing. They have (once again) carved themselves out a place in the history of speed. The venue for this prolific undertaking was the ShiftS3ctor/Revolution Pike’s Peak Airstrip Attack in Colorado. Before the event began, Lucas English was heard to say that he would be pleased to surpass the previous top speed world record in the standing mile. That record was 252 mph. That was considered pretty optimistic since Pike’s Peak is only a half-mile course. The ETS GT-R is at the forefront of 1-mile, half-mile, and quarter-mile GT-R racing. These guys have Read More

Dig Race – Bugatti Veyron SS vs. Nissan GT-R

June 13th, 2017

Who wouldn’t want to see a dig race between two of the baddest exotic production automobiles in the world? What we have here is a $2.5-million French-built Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Supper Sport going up against a $105K Japanese made Nissan GT-R. Yeah, I realize that the Nissan has undergone some pretty expensive modification but no more than another $100K (or so) worth. The mid-engine, all-wheel drive Veyron gained worldwide recognition when it claimed the title of world’s fastest production automobile a few years ago. It set a top speed record of 268 mph. Since then, there have been plenty of Read More

Drag Race – McLaren 540C vs Honda NSX vs Nissan GT-R

May 27th, 2017

If you trust the statistics, all the data points to the McLaren getting spanked handily in this short drag race. Both the Japanese supercars have more power and more torque than the British variant. Adding insult to injury – the McLaren is the only car in this elite field that is not all-wheel drive so, it also has less traction. Fortunately for us, the producers of this video decided to go ahead and run the race anyway. Sometimes things don’t work out as expected. The carbon-fiber tubbed McLaren is the lightest of the three cars and is equipped with a Read More

Sunshine State Street Showdown

May 25th, 2017

Hello drag racing fans and welcome to sunny North Florida (Mexico) for the Street Mafia Cash Days. This clip features some of the most capable cars in the Sunshine State in some very competitive street (dig) racing action. To give us all a better understanding of just how competitive these digs are, there are cameras on both ends of the track. The rules are simple;; don’t jump the light and don’t cross the center line. Other than that it’s run-what-ya-brung, single elimination dig racing with a cash prize going to the top two finishers. Let’s take a gander! Round 1 Read More

Street Racing – Cali Style

May 16th, 2017

This is how it’s done in the Golden State. They are rolling them out on the interstate and running them like wildfire! A gathering of cars such as this virtually demands that a race ensue. It matters not where they meet; just that inside the chest of every driver beats the heart of a competitor. This time they meet on the streets – the streets of La-La Land – Los Angeles (Mexico), that is. There are several Nissans (of the GT-R variety), a 2.0-liter Evo (650hp) building 40 psi of boost, a stock (LS2) motor ‘Vette (660hp) with a V1 Read More

Tutorial – Drive a 2,500HP Nissan GT-R

April 27th, 2017

Climb on board the Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) Nissan GT-R and let Lucas English (of English Racing) take you step-by-step through a 1/4-mile pass. This POV tutorial begins before the burnout box and continues through deploying the parachute. Lucas opens up his tool box of speed and makes you privy to all his tuning tricks. He shows you what happens as he and the English Racing team try to best Giidi as the quickest GT-R on the planet. This is no exhibition race, drag racing fans, it’s for all the marbles and this video puts you in the passenger seat 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

TX2K17 – GT-R Elite Ready to Roll

March 17th, 2017

With TX2K17 all set to begin, the racing world stands in anticipation to see if 2017 is the year of a true 6-second street car. Firms like AMS, ETS, and T1 Race Development are all fan favorites and all are capable of achieving the coveted 6-second ET with their cutting edge Nissan GT-R monsters. Nevertheless, there are hundreds of other competitors who have been working just as hard with their Lamborghinis, Porsches, Chevrolets, and Dodges. Anyone has a chance to be King of the Streets and it ain’t over until it’s over. Were it left up to me, I would Read More
