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
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.
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.
Jet Powered Van Fires Things Up
Crank up the volume for this one. This jet powered van not only puts on a
good fire show but it also hauls arse down the track at Heathcote.
Unfortunately there was no time recorded but it looks pretty damn fast.
World's Biggest Burnout Fire!
Justen Brown absolutely torches his Holden ute at Mallanats with one of the
biggest fire shows we've seen.
And then he came out in the finals and do it all again.
Jamboree 2011 - Cool Cars, Hot Women
I decided to stick my head in for a look at Jamboree 2011 while on holidays
in Queensland recently. Cool cars and hot women make this event a mandatory
addition to everyone's event list.
There's a couple little editing glitches in the video, but it took so long
to render and upload, I decided to let them be.
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.
Summernats 25 - Day Three
Having trouble loading this file up. hopefully this time it works.
Okay guys, I finally got this to load up. All the action from Friday with
unveiling, bands and plenty of cruising. What a huge day!
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. :)
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.
Here's a video clip I created for Street Machine magazine. It was taken at
Summernats 19, an Australian Street Machine show
The car is a twin turbocharged
LS1powered HSV R8 Clubsport (based off the Holden Commodore platform) that
makes around 1200-1300hp at the rear wheels. On this particular run it
popped out an injector o-ring and sprayed the engine bay with fuel. You can
imagine what happens next.
Crazy Camaro Burnout
I filmed this Camaro at
Melbourne's Easternats a few years back. One of the most awesome burnouts
I've ever seen. Turn the volume up for this one.
And don't forget to rate it.
