Roll Racing – Import vs. Motorcycle

January 18th, 2017

Any competent street (roll) racer knows that if you want to get an idea of how capable your car is, just pull alongside a sportbike (on the highways of Mexico) and rev up your engine. Chances are that if your whip can spank a lightweight, high-powered sportbike, it is ready to hit the highway for some roll racing action. The owner of this heavily modified Nissan GT-R decided he would make a night of rolling elite level sportbikes and this video is the compilation of his efforts. This car still has the factory 3.8-liter V6 engine. As you probably already Read More

GT-R Tackles Huracan on the Street

December 20th, 2016

What would you do for fun if you lived in a place where the roads were flat and straight – as far as the eye could see? Sounds like a street racer’s paradise to me. Why not buy a couple of the most elite factory supercars on the planet and line them up for some dig racing action? That’s what I want for Christmas, Santa! Featured in this video are the Nissan GT-R and the Lamborghini Huracan. The Nissan is configured with front-engine and all-wheel drive, while the Lamborghini rocks a mid-engine setup that can be had with standard rear-wheel Read More

Desert Street Duel – Acura NSX vs. Nissan GT-R

December 8th, 2016

What better place to stage a 1/4-mile dig race between two powerful exotic sports cars than in the deserts of Mexico? This video gives us a look at a 2017 Acura NSX and, a car that is affectionately known as Goliath, the 2016 Nissan GT-R. This ought to be a good one. The $110K Nissan is sporting a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 capable of producing 565hp and 467 lb.-ft. of torque. With a six-speed dual clutch automatic transmission and all-wheel drive it can rocket from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.9-seconds. The $160K Acura is also well equipped with a Read More

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

True Street – 1100HP Nitto R34 Skyline GT-R

July 16th, 2016

The perfect example of a street car is one that you can beat on during long days at the strip and then drive home in the comfort of cool air conditioning. This Nitto GT-R is just that type of car. It has 245/70/17 Mickey Thompson ET street radial tires but it can still make a 9-second 1/4-mile pass if the need arises. This all-wheel drive monster has a Nitto modified 3.2-liter block with a stroker kit, JE forged pistons, topped with a race ported RB26 cylinder head, and custom secret-spec camshafts. A Precision 8285 turbocharger forces massive amounts of air Read More

Mongoose – 680WHP Nissan 240SX

July 6th, 2016

The featured car in this video has the uncommon ability to tear up the drag strip and stick to the curves like a mouse to a glue-trap. The owner campaigns this beauty on the local 1/4-mile one weekend and runs the heck out of the regional road course the next. This thing is scary fast with neck-snapping torque. This rear-wheel drive coupe is equipped with a 2JZ-GTE Toyota engine, a transmission from an Infiniti G35,  and a rear differential from an Infiniti Q45. It has been treated to an extensive porting and polishing job (intake manifold, exhaust headers, and cylinder Read More
