Old School cars at their best! AA/FA Top Fuel Altereds, front engine
Top-fuel, a real cacklefest. Bradford's, Rat Trap, Nasty Benjamin and
Nanook. Watch the insane Nanook vs jet car race, just a little squirrely.
Lots of other cars too. TA rails, Pro-mods, Super-Gas, Super-Pro, drag
bikes, some nice ET cars and one particularly fearsome 7-second blown 1962
Chevy Nova... oh yeah... and a jet car (5.94 sec 268.97 MPH pass).

"The Big Block Chevy Experiment"
What would happen if you took a 460 BBC out of a Camaro that ran 10.60s and
dropped it into an altered? The test vehicle is Matsuda Racing's '48 Fiat
Topolino altered (normally powered by a blown alcohol small block Chevy).

Mark Sheehan's Nitro Altered
Mark Sheehan today debuted his brand new nitromethane burning altered drag
racing machine. The body on this wild car is based around an early 1920's
style T-bucket, and has been meticulously curved and shaped in carbon fiber
to match the swoopy front wing, and massive triple element rear top fuel
The car is an ex John Force Mustang Funny Car that has been
transformed into a Nitro Altered since its arrival down under, and the
Perth based team has got plans to run this beast as a Nitro Funny Car as
well in the near future.
Today's debut as a Nitro Altered resulted in a good 60-foot launch on their
first run earlier in the day before the heat kicked in, and the team who
usually race in the alcohol division got familiar with what it was like to
play with nitromethane. A turn around on the car saw a couple of engine
sleeves replaced, and it was back out for the second of three planned runs.
As the climbing 35-degree afternoon heat scorched down on the track
however, Sheehan's second run resulted in instant tyre smoke, and the car
over revved and burst the Supercharger
off, and broke the inlet manifold as well as also damaging some other
componentry in the process, so the third run never happened.
The team plan to fully license this car in the near future however, so stay
tuned as this nitro breathing nostalgic retro modern machine and man both
get used to each other...
