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.





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.





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.





Summernats23 - CMEFRY goes up in flames
Can you imagine a more Apt numberplate for this car? CMEFRY (See Me Fry) goes up in flames at the end of a massive smokefest. Grab the next issue of Street Machine magazine to see some amazing pictures by Adam Morrissey from Street Machine.





VL Commodore spins at 160mph+
Turn your volume up for this one. Watch as Max Ellery spins out at over 160mph in his VL Commodore. Clean undies were most probably needed afterwards.





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.





Commodore Powerskids at Performance Car Mania 2011
Commodres cop a lot of flak at car events, usually because there are are so many of them, but it just goes to prove that it's Australia's most popular car. Here's a selection of the better Powerskids by the Commodore brigade at Performance Car Mania 2011.





KILARB - High Speed VL Crash at Sydney Dragway
Considering the speed this car was travelling when it all went wrong this accident could have been much worse. It looks like the car has pushed out a head gasket or had a line let go and put fluid under the tyres which then put it into the wall. As you can see there was a fair bit of damage to the rear end.





Ford Powerskids at Performance Car Mania 2010
One for the Ford fans. Although the Holdens had the Fords heavily outnumbered they still put on a strong showing at Winton Raceway in the Powerskid competition. The two real stand outs in my mind were Brendon Thompson in his '72 F100 and Luke Graham in the golden '70 model Capri.





SPOT ON - Chassis Twisting 2JZ-Powered VL Wagon
This is Australia's quickest VL Wagon but it's not powered by a Nissan 3-litre like most other VL's, this one is sporting Toyota power with a hopped-up 2JZ under the bonnet. It's no slouch either. On Saturday it ran a PB of 9.8 before breaking the gearbox, they dropped another box in it and turned up the wick with the car going 9.2 at 150mph by the end of the day. It's still got the factory BW diff in it too.





Nitrous Backfire on FULLSIK Commodore
Watch for the last run on the early Commodore (VC I think) where is blows the scoop off the car when the Nitrous pops at half track. Not sure how many cubes, but it's running a holden V8.





Do You Smell Something Burning? GRUNDY catches fire at Winton PCM2010
Where ever there's a burnout comp you'll find Sam Grande and his big block powered Holden Ute, but this time he tried to burn it to the ground with what looks like a small trans fluid fire. The fire guys were a little mopre switched on this time and got the fire put out quickly.
