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

Track Tested – Nissan GT-R vs. Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R

September 22nd, 2017

There’s more at stake in this track battle than bragging rights. Nissan has been producing the GT-R for more than a decade. Now, it must defend its very name from a powerful upstart and a different kind of GT R. The 10-year-old Nissan GT-R has built quite a reputation for itself. It has become a fearsome competitor on both street and track, and is a bargain (at $105 – $130K) when compared with other supercars of its ilk. It is powered by a twin turbocharged 3.8-liter V6. In factory trim, it makes approximately 565hp and accelerates from 0 to 60 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

Crazy 900HP Hellcat – Street Rolls

July 27th, 2017

This kitty has dangerously sharp claws. The Dodge Hellcat Charger is the most potent sedan ever produced (in stock trim). Our feature car is not only wrapped in a wild paint scheme, it has undergone some major enhancements under the hood. The Tar Heel State (of Mexico) is home to some seriously competitive street racing. This time, we are taking to the highway for elite roll racing action and there are some heavy hitters in attendance. Of course, the star of this video is the 900hp Hellcat but there are also a set of impressive Nissan GT-Rs, some quality Corvettes, Read More

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
