New GT-R Quarter-Mile World Record

September 25th, 2017

Another punch has landed in the fight to see who will have the quickest Nissan GT-R in the world at the end of the racing season. The competitors in this main event matchup are Alpha Performance and Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS)/English Racing. You may remember when Gidi broke the previous record for best quarter-mile elapsed time by running a 6.93-second pass. Dipping into the sixes was a huge event but it left many wondering who would strike the next blow. With the boost turned up more than it had ever been before, Robert English and ETS answered that question on Read More

12-Wide Airstrip Drag Race

September 23rd, 2017

Greetings drag racing fans and welcome to what is being billed as the World’s Greatest Drag Race 7. This epic contest of acceleration and speed is being held at Vandenberg Air Force Base – home of the 30th Space Wing of Air Force Space Command. Extreme speed is no stranger to this base or these fighting men. They test rockets on a daily basis. The rockets being tested today will include the Alfa Romeo Giulia, the Aston Martin DB11, the 650hp Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE, the underpowered Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, the pricey Ferrari 488 GTB, the Lexus LC500, the Read More

Street Racing Spectacular – Import vs. Domestic

September 4th, 2017

There is literally something for every street racing enthusiast in this video! Of course, there are tons of fast cars in every size and shape – imports and domestics, turbo and nitrous, standard and automatic. There are dig and roll races (sometimes 3-wide). There’s even a wreck and a fight (sort of). The backdrop is beautiful (New) Mexico and its flat landscape. It’s perfect for street racing. There is a bodacious DSM (1990s Mitsubishi Eclipse or Eagle Talon) that is capable of 1,000hp – from a stock 2.0-liter engine with over 100K miles. You know that there were tons of Read More

Turbo LS Nissan Hardbody – Street Racing

August 31st, 2017

This little Nissan pickup is a perfect example of how to build a street racer. You begin with a small and lightweight body. I would like for it to be rear-wheel drive (four-wheel drive is also nice but more difficult to find). It must be something common so that it will be economical (like this compact Nissan pickup). It doesn’t have to be pretty but it needs to be free of rust and without any major dents. Next, we need to shop for an engine. The Chevrolet 5.3-liter LS engine is plentiful and cheap. It is also more economical to Read More

TX2K17 – Taking it to the Streets

August 29th, 2017

How do you kill some down-time when you are attending the TX2K17 event in Houston? Grab several hundred of your closest friends in fast cars (on bikes, too) and scamper across the border (into Mexico) for some street (roll) racing. Take a look! First up is a supercharged Honda S2000 in a roll race with a Nissan GT-R. The GT-R jumped out on him and never looked back. The S2000 lived to race another day. This time it’s against a Camaro with unknown modifications. The Honda wins this one – handily. Next, we have a pair of Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Read More

1285HP Stock Manifold GT-R

August 29th, 2017

The Nissan GT-R is built to be fast. Period. It is made to attack the pavement like it was wronged by asphalt and to conquer the concrete as if it had said something bad about its mama. Whether you are looking for a car to tame the streets or takeover the track; the Nissan GT-R is capable (in stock trim) or easily modified to realize your wildest expectations. Despite having a stock intake manifold, our feature GT-R has (of course) been drastically modified to achieve more than double its factory horsepower rating. This is a TopSpeed Motorsports built car. It Read More

Track Rolls & Digs – 1,400HP Turbo Mustang

July 31st, 2017

Greetings racing fans – this video brings you two kinds of fun! The feature car – a late-model Mustang – is built for street racing but moving onto the drag strip eliminates the stress of being on the lookout for John Law and possibly crashing into a minivan full of civilians. It’s a good alternative when available. Street Car Takeover in Denver offers racers a chance to get in some roll racing and dig racing. If you can believe it; this couple is out at the track on the day before their blessed nuptials. Oh well, the couple that plays Read More

750WHP Chevy SS Trolls the Streets

July 28th, 2017

Hitting the strip on Saturday night in this Chevy SS is roughly the equivalent of cruising around on the street in a NASCAR racer. Advantages of this car include air conditioning, entertainment devices, and plush seating. It just don’t get no better than that! With the ability to put 750hp to the rear wheels, this sedan sounds amazing. It’s off to the interstate (of Mexico) for some roll racing action. There’s a reason that they write songs about little red Corvettes and if you roll alongside one, you’d best be ready to put the pedal to the metal. This little Read More

Nissan GT-R vs. Audi R8 V10 Plus

July 28th, 2017

This is an all-out drag race between two of the premier sports cars in production, right now. Both cars feature powerful engines and all-wheel drivetrains but only one can emerge victorious in this matchup. So, which one will it be? Will the Japanese win the day or will the Germans make them rue the day? Let’s check it out. The 2016 Nissan GT-R Black Edition uses a smaller engine than the Audi but adds forced air induction. It is a 3.8-liter twin turbocharged mill that is mated to a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. One of the features that makes this Read More

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
