1000HP NSX Takes-On GT-Rs and Bikes

July 19th, 2017

If you enjoy roll racing on the highway (of Mexico), then you will love this video. It features a highly modified Acura NSX rolling up against several other radically enhanced import coupes as well as a couple of a high performance motorcycles. The aluminum bodied, mid-engine NSX was manufactured by Honda. The first generation (1990 – 2005) models were sold with an all-aluminum VTEC 3.0-liter V6 engine. It had the capacity to produce only 252hp. In order for our feature car to be competitive in the street racing world, the V6 was extracted and a (more durable) 2.0-liter K20 four-cylinder 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

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

Half-Mile Blowout – Lamborghini vs. Nissan

March 31st, 2017

Hello racing fans and welcome to the Rafael Hernandez Airport in sunny Puerto Rico. Today’s action is of the 1/2-mile variety and it is particularly outstanding. Some of the baddest cars and most capable performance firms are on hand to try and claim the top speed crown. Underground Racing (UR) is well represented by the star of the event – a black Lamborghini Superleggera, owned by Richard Fowler. As you know, the Superleggera is pretty potent in factory trim but Richard’s Lambo has been treated to the UR X-Package that bumps output up to the 2,000hp mark. Richard has already Read More

New Half-Mile Top Speed World Record

March 25th, 2017

Greetings drag racing fans and speed enthusiasts of every ilk. Please join the DragTimes staff in celebrating a brand spanking new World Record Top Speed for the 1/2-mile! It seems that our counterparts in Dubai have once again been busy with staying on the cutting edge in Nissan GT-R modification. While everyone in the U.S. has been busy with trying to break into the sixes in the 1/4-mile dig (and getting it done!), Alpha Logic (a Dubai based firm) decided to go ahead and bust the 1/2-mile world record with their Alpha K GT-R. In all fairness, it wouldn’t be 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
