727 Cubic Inches and Australian Tire Smoke! - Roadkill Episode 10
On this episode of Roadkill, there's endless burnouts and powerskids as
David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan of HOT ROD magazine are on the loose in
Australia with 727ci of Sonny Leonard hemi-headed madness. The massive
big-block makes 1,275 horsepower between the
fenders of a 2006 Holden HSV VE Clubsport R8. In American, that's like a
Pontiac G8. This display of overkill is the product of "Gup," the promoter
of the Powercruise series of events in Australia, New Zealand, and
Minnesota (USA) where tire smoke is the rule. On the show, you'll see tire
fire from Gup's infamous "Elvis" '74 Holden HQ, from his 727ci Clubbie,
from a 1,500ci diesel semi truck, and from Downunder's most throttle-happy
petrolheads on both coasts. The miracle is that Freiburger and Finnegan
aren't still in an Aussie jail. Of course, that might have been less
punishing than the 30-hour flight home.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel.

323 Turbo rotary @ powercruise 2010
Cruising with Andrew in my 500hp 323. Boost was reduced to 17psi, but was still a
handfull. 2nd, 3rd & 4th gear bursts .210kph only about 1/2 way down the
straight (track speed limits prevented full speed all the way). Great fun.
