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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The World's Most Colourful Burnout!
Peter Kitrozoski's burnout looked exactly like the colour of my Vodka Slushie at Summernats 25. Just watching it makes me thirsty for more. Peter also does a fair job of twirling the XE Falcon around the pad and with a big power Clevo V8 under the hood he's got plenty of horsers at his disposal.

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.

MUT308 - Supercharged VL Commodore
There's no doubt that Holden's Commodore is one of the most popular cars ever made in Australia, and given that the VL is one of the most popular Commodores ever made it's only natural that someone would turn a VL Commodore into a supercharged burnout car. Adam Mutimer from Wagga owns this methanol fueled monster and the burnout was at Shepparton's Valvoline Springnats 2010.

Near Miss - Why you don't use push lock hoses!
I've shown you Johnny Roso's awesome XY GT before. Well he was back at heathcote for some test and tune when it blew one of the push lock hoses off his trans cooler and nearly put him into the wall. I wont say what brand but it's a big name and this is a good explanation of why braided fittings are best. Yes, they're more expensive but what is your car and your life worth?

VLGOD is a Seven Second Screamer
VL turbo Commodores are a uniquely Aussie creation and wickedly fast with the right mods. With a 3-litre straight six (RB30) and a factory single turbo they do okay but these days with RD30 block and massive roller bearing race turbos they are pretty awesome. Check out the flames from the pipes on the two-step limiter.

7-sec VL Turbo at Sydney Dragway
This VL turbo sedan was pretty impressive at Sydney Dragway recently with a string of high seven second runs. Not bad for a 3-litre inline six

LS1 Nationals - Whipple blown SS ute
APS built up this VZ ute with a Whipple blower. As you can see it rips down the quarter mile pretty rapidly.

Seven second Gen-III - HYPA57: plus incar footage
A blast from the past. Mark Uzell's HYPA57 ute. It ran a Gen-III engine with a massive single turbo. Unfortunately the turbo was that loud it distorted the incar camera's microphone.
