Commodore Powerskids at Performance Car Mania 2010

Okay, so this isn't ALL the Commodores but this is definitely the pick of the bunch. There's a good mix of everything here from early Holden V8 models through to turbo sixes and the later Gen-III's. No wonder it's Australia's most popular performance car.

Performance Car Mania 2012
All the action from Performance Car Mania 2012. Well maybe not ALL the action, but enough to give you an idea. Enjoy. PS: They had just under 500cars and 10,000 spectators this year. It's getting big! Music is - RetroFuture Clean by Kevin Macleod from Incompetech.com





Powerskids at Performance Car Mania 2012
I know the term confuses our international firends but 'powerskids' was a competition invent by Powercruise. It's taken off at several other events and it involves spinning your tyres in a straight line for as long as you can without using the brakes. Here's the best from the powerskid comp at PCM - the winner was Perry Bullivant in the green twin turbo Torana.





PCM 2013 Powerskids
Powerskid finals action from Performance Car Mania 2013. I've included the better ones here, but if you didn't perform or rode the brake hard you hit the recycle bin.





Torana Powerskids at Performance Car Mania 2010
There was a great variety of rides at Winton's Performance Car Mania but there's no denying a strong Torana presence at the event. Just check out how many were smoking it up in the powerskids! Perry Bullivant, with the dark green Torana and black bonnet, won the Powerskids after a stout effort on sunday.





Performance Car Mania 2010
Here's just some of the action from Performance Car Mania 2010 at Winton Raceway. This event is quickly becoming one of the premiere events on the Victorian calendar, and Winton Raceway will also be home to Easternats next years so this was a good opportunity for entrants to get a feel for the facilities. There's plenty more action to come over the next few weeks.





Scotty's Garage interview - REN-355 Supercharged VR Commodore
After almost 4 years in the build Josh Cotterill has finally fired up his blown Chevy powered VR Commodore for the first time. Josh is well known around southern NSW for doing some tough burnouts despite the old 304 Holden engine having no blower. Watch out now, because that blown 406ci Chev combo is pretty tough and with Josh behind the wheel it'll be a sight to behold on the track.





WEPON8 Monaro Burnout at Performance Car Mania 2010
Another car I'm not too sure about, but it certainly had some herbs under the bonnet and the driver knew how to fling it around. Not a bad burnout for a late model car and it left with it's bumpers intact which is always a bonus.





Performance Car Mania 2011
Performance Car Mania is quickly becoming the premiere modified car event in Victoria, and it's not hard to see why. The organisers set everything up to maximise the fun for the entrants. And if the entrants are happy then the spectators are as well, because they get to see some of the coolest cars around cutting loose. The new quarter mile strip was an interesting addition and although it was a tad bumpy in places it made for some interesting racing. We've squeezed as much action as we could into a reasonable time frame, but keep your eyes open for planty more vids from this event in the near future.





13s For $1300 - Project Bluebird - Episode 14
Here we go guys, the episode you've all been waiting for - Episode 14. We take the car for a run at Wilby, an 1/8th mile track in Northern Victoria, for a bit of fun and see if we can win a trophy. Hope you enjoyed the series. If I decide to keep the car I might do a few upgrades later on and see how much quicker we can make it, while keeping the budget low. Stay tuned though because after I tidy up the garage I'm going to start on my new project and it's going to be a big one. Edit: as it turns out this wasn't the last episode so check out the next videos.





National Burnout Masters Finals - Summernats 24
The Liqui-Moly National Burnout Masters at Summernats 24 was the most kick arse collection of burnout warriors ever seen in this country. It started with 18 cars which was quickly whittled down to just five contenders; Matt Power, Peter Gray, Steve Sines, Mick Brasher and Gary Myers. This video just shows a small part of each burnout in the top five, I'll post the whole of each individual burnout in the next couple days.





WTOFIT - Crazy Rotary Powered Van Burnout
We popped in to the Good Fryday Burnout at Sydney Dragway to check out the action and found this totally insane little rotary powered Suzuki van ripping a few skids. Check out that glowing Exhaust. We've seen a few hot systems in our time but never one that glowed so brightly.





Holden V6 Powered Suzuki Mighty Boy ute
The Suzuki Mighty Boy was the smallest utility vehicle ever released on the Australian market place, and Aussies loving Utes of all shapes and sizes it's only natural that a few people would end up modifying them. The original three-cylinder FWD configuration is gone and there a Holden 3.8-litre V6 slotted in its place with the power now going to the rear wheels. If that wasn't enough there's also a Supercharger (Powerdyne) as well. It certainly had no trouble smoking it up at the Ultimate Burnout Challange.





SKDKID - Crazy Black VN Calais
Pretty sure this injected VN Calais is packing a centrifugal Supercharger (looks like a reverse mount Procharger) and it certainly has plenty of power. the beauty of centirfugal blowers is they don't heat the intake charge as much and they make more power the higher you rev. Perfect for a burnout car.





Flaming Hell! Burnout Winner at Performance Car Mania 2010
Here's one way to win the burnout comp. High revs, burst tyres and a whole bunch of flames. You've got to laugh at the fire crew though, the entrants put at the fire themselves and then drive off.





KRANKY Tries to Burn Down Summernats
Before KRANKY burned down Kandos he tried his best to burn down Sumemrnats as well. And it was after this burnout that I got clocked in the head by a bit of rubber.
