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 like to see a Viper, Corvette, or Camaro pull off this elusive feat but none of these domestic street cars are hitting stride with the Nissan GT-R (even in this 1/4-mile dig race).
In the U.S., the three firms listed above engaged the world record for the GT-R 1/4-mile with regularity while their counterparts across the pond did the same in their equally impressive Nissan coupes. The weather forecast is perfect for the upcoming weekend in Houston, Texas and the racers are ready to roll. This could be the event that gives the world a legitimate 6-second street car.
