HSVSS up in flames
An oldy but a goody. This highly modified twin tubo Walkinshaw owned by
Steve Santos goes up in flames when a fuel test at HP Heroes at Summernats
goes wrong. The fuel tester allowed fuel to hit the hot Exhaust manifolds not long after the car went
800hp+ at the tyres. The moral of the story is don't let anyone else touch
Jet Car Destroys Van

the huge crowd. As you can hear the crowd loved it.
KRANKY Burns Down Kandos - Burnout Fire!!
We've seen plenty of burnouts end with a fire but we've never seen one
start with a fire. Rodney Waters HQ sedan goes up in flames right from the
start at Kandos. It's crazy insane.
Project Digger Burnout Testing
Back when the Army's Project Digger was first getting built I was invited
along to film some burnout testing. As you can see the car wasn't finished
but with time getting short before Summernats 23 they wanted to make sure
it was right to go.
Unfortunately, as a direct result of the testing they decided to not do any
burnout at Summernats that year due to cooling issues. But it sure looked
So for those that haven't seen it in action, here you go.
MRBADQ Gets Toasty At Summer Skidfest
We first saw Ross Heasley's MRBADQ at Valvoline Springnats this year and it
was out again for the Summer Skidfest at Heathcote Raceway. Running a 6/71
blown 350 Chev, the HQ Holden Coupe makes around 613hp at the flywheel and
runs on pump gas. That didn't stop it from having a little flame pop moment
on the pad at Heathcote though. Usually it's the methanol cars that spew
the flames out the back. Nice little skid.
Peter Grmusa - ATRISK - Shed Party burnout
In a secret location the boys lock the gates and invite a few people to
come and join them in a night of mayhem and burnouts. Check out the volume
of smoke filling the area between the buildings. Awesome control.
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.

I've had nothing but trouble posting this video so I hope you all enjoy it.
After dropping a valve in his Mustang Gary Myers put all his
efforts into the Summernats Burnout Comp with the XA Coupe. He almost got
there too ad showed that yuou don't need a blower to get on the podium.
Rotary burnout - THELAW
Little RX3 sedan with THELAW numberplates does a burnout. Rotary's doing
burnouts are rare enough, this one does a decent skid so I decided to post
it up. a little flame show and a burst radiator hose at the end doesn't
hurt either. :)
