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

CRAZY GT-R Ride Along

June 9th, 2018

As 1320 cameraman (Kyle) discovered during this video, when your butt is eating the seat you don’t really need a safety harness! This clip is coming at you from Cootamundra, Australia and they know about building bodacious turbocharged horsepower Down Under. The first car featured, a red R34 Nissan GT-R, is prepared by Mick and the crew at Motorsports Mechanical. It is loaded with a billett 3.2-liter inline 6-cylinder engine and a giant 94-millimeter Garrett turbocharger. Both our feature cars are of the GT-R variety and both (surprisingly) are rear-wheel drive only. The latter leads to some very intense moments Read More

196 MPH Nismo GT-R Roll Racer

May 30th, 2018

This video begins with some 40 mph roll racing on the drag strip and wraps up with some dig racing. There’s something here for everybody. There’s also something terribly interesting about a car that can pull the front tires off the pavement. If it can ‘tote the front’ at 40 mph – it’s downright amazing and if it also happens to be an all-wheel drive vehicle – WOW! It’s mind numbing! Prepared by Miami Performance Incorporated (MPI), this fast moving Nissan GT-R Nismo is outfitted with an Alpha 16 turbocharger kit from Alpha Performance. This firm is on the cutting Read More

World’s Baddest GT-R – 3000HP

May 21st, 2018

Well, Alpha Performance seems to have reset the bar once again with their latest entry into the realm of the extremely modified Nissan GT-R. After posting a weekend best top speed of 228 mph in the roll racing event, the OB Prestige owned car ripped off a trio of near 6-second passes in the quarter-mile drag races. Personal best elapsed times of 7.11, 7.06, and 7.05-seconds were all recorded before this mirror finish sports coupe was put back on the trailer. All this is accomplished with stock diameter tires on front and rear. There is also a dyno test. The Read More

The GT-R That Jack Built

May 11th, 2018

Running in the fine air that permeates Colorado Springs, Colorado, an outstanding field of performance cars has gathered to assault a half-mile patch of abandoned airstrip. Among them is this no-nonsense Nissan GT-R. The Pike’s Peak Airstrip Attack is among the most prestigious top-speed events in the world.   This black beauty is powered by a 4.1-liter stroker motor (aluminum connecting rods) with an Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) kit on it (twin Precision 6466 turbochargers). At 37 psi, the car maxed a 1,500hp dyno out. Jack’s Transmissions performed the build on the entire car and they are on-hand today to Read More
