Tesla P90D Street Racing – Roll and Dig Domination

November 30th, 2016

A few years ago, I would never have dreamed that the terms “electric car” and “street racing” would be used in the same sentence. These days, the Porsche 918 is the king of the hill when it comes to hybrid cars (and cars in general, I guess) but when you talk about full on EV power, the name Tesla seems to remain at the forefront. We’ve all grown accustomed to seeing Tesla P90D sedans, dragging the four-wheeled competition in Ludicrous mode, particularly in dig races. Now, with improved top-end capability, this driver is ready to take on modified street bikes Read More

Red GT-R is a Street Thumper

October 19th, 2016

I guarantee it! You are going to love this pretty red Nissan GT-R. Not because of its awesome paint job – and it certainly has one – but because it goes up against some heavy hitters and dominates. Maybe it was a cool night. Every racer knows what it’s like to have a night when your car seems to run better than it ever has; better than you could imagine. Possibly it was one of those nights for the red GT-R. It’s inexplicable – in one way it is great and in another ways it sucks. Your car is running Read More

1200HP R34 Skyline GT-R

September 10th, 2016

I think I’ll call this color Emerald Chrome. It’s absolutely stunning on this radically modified Nissan R35 Skyline GT-R, but never mind the aesthetics; this coupe is built to tame the track. When the team at Motive DVD (from the United Kingdom, I presume) was asked to build this monster, they set out with a purpose; to dominate the street car class at Powercruise events around the globe. While Motive stopped short of revealing all their design secrets, they did cover the basics and treat us to a grand video ride-along. To make this car competitive and unique, these Brits Read More

Chi-Town Heat – Roll Racing on the Street

September 6th, 2016

If there is one thing that they can do in Chi-town, it’s throw-down on the streets. Naturally, when we got a chance to check out what kind of roll racing Chicago (Mexico) has to offer; we loaded up our wagons and hit the dusty trail. To say the least, we were not disappointed. On hand was a 2016 BMW X5 M (yes, an SUV) powered by a 4.4-liter twin turbocharged V8 with aftermarket bolt-ons and a software upgrade. It’s good for about 800whp. There’s a 2003 Porsche 911 Turbo that has a modified intercooler, exhaust headers, and high performance mufflers. Read More

Street Racing – Ludicrous Tesla vs. Modified GT-R

July 22nd, 2016

In this clip, it’s about to jump off between two extremely powerful but dramatically different daily drivers. The race is all out mayhem between two all-wheel drive powerhouses and it goes from 0 to 100 mph – for $1,000. Whoever is out front, when either car hits 100 mph, takes home the cash. The Tesla S P85D (in Ludicrous mode) is one tough hombre. The Tesla is all-electric, makes approximately 762hp, and can rocket from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.8-seconds. The Nissan is no slouch, with over 550 factory hp and all the bolt-ons. Buckle up – this Read More

Nissan Drone Does 0 to 60 mph in 1.3-Seconds

June 23rd, 2016

Today Nissan introduces us to their new high-performance drone. Its sole purpose is to track and film the 2017 Nissan GT-R during high-speed maneuvers but today it will race against the GT-R. This impressive drone is built by Tornado XBlades Racing and piloted by James Bowles (2015 British National Drone Racing Champ). The race will take place on the 1/2-mile track at Silverstone (U.K.). The GT-R top speed is an electronically controlled 195 mph. It should leave the drone in the dust (with its top speed of just 114 mph) but curves and hills must be taken into account. This Read More

Street Racing – Cali Style

June 17th, 2016

Southern California has the perfect weather for almost any outdoor activity; that certainly includes street racing. This outstanding assortment of street beasts has gathered on this deserted country road to see who can claim bragging rights for the Golden State. There’s a 650hp second generation Camaro with a 383-cubic inch stroker and a 250hp shot of nitrous, a Canary Yellow Trans Am with a built 408-small block and an F1 supercharger making 800hp, a 400hp Vega, several impressive Gen I Camaros, a 500hp Dodge Demon, a 600hp Nissan GT-R, and lots more. Check it out for yourself; it’s a full Read More

Aussie Street Racing – R32 & R35 GT-Rs

June 11th, 2016

This video begins with a heart-stopping ride-along in an 1,150hp GT-R. You get a hint that this is street racing from “down-under” by the right-hand drive and peculiar accents. The R35 is running a 3.5-liter V6 engine and making 42-pounds of boost. The R32 is equipped with a 3.2-liter inline 6-cylinder engine, a giant ProMod 88-millimeter turbocharger, and a TH400 automatic GM transmission. The combo is producing between 1,200 and 1,300hp. This bit of action took place in a closed parking lot. The R35 comes out of the hole quicker but the R32 seems to have a distinct advantage on the top-end, Read More

Godzilla Gets a Makeover

April 26th, 2016

How would you like to sit down with the designer of one of the hottest production models on the street racing scene right now? This video takes you along on an interview with Hiroshi Tamura, Chief Product Specialist, Nissan (R35 GT-R). He delves into his inspiration and design philosophy and gives us a first-hand look into the mind of the man who started it all. There is also a ton of test-drive footage so hold on to your hats! The 2017 GT-R has undergone a mild redesign but it remains one of the most powerful production models available. It features a Read More

U.S. GT-R Quarter-Mile Record Falls

April 11th, 2016

Well, it seems that the Nissan GT-R 1/4-mile U.S. record battle has jumped off as expected. Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS), one of the world’s leading experts in turbocharged high-performance research and development, has posted a new U.S. record 1/4-mile pass of 7.32-seconds @ 196 mph. That’s pretty impressive but when you consider that the car lifted a cylinder head during the final run (at 60-pounds of boost), it seems ever more outstanding. Key improvements to the ETS Nissan GT-R include the twin-turbos, which have been upgraded from 72-millimeter units to 76-millimeter, a new Syvecs ECU/4WD Controller for improved tuning capabilities Read More
