2000hp Torana Wins Horsepower Heroes

Jake Edwards goes back to back at Summernats 26 with another win in horsepower Heroes with 1666rwhp (and equates to over 2000hp at the flywheel). The car runs a 496ci big block with a massive 106mm Garrett turbo with EFI and methanol. It has run 7.88 at 179mph on the quarter, so it's not just a Dyno queen. Check out how much Exhaust energy it produces at the end of the video where it blew my second camera over even though it was at least 8 feet away.

Too Much Horsepower For The Dyno
At the recent Totally Exhausted Dyno Day they tried to Dyno test Billey Seton's SILLY HQ sedan. But massive traction issues meant they weren't getting the numbers the car should have been getting. the engine has been Dynoed at 1300hp but the best they could get was just over 450rwhp before it erupted in wheelspin again. Then after it was all over they took it out the back for some donut action and snapped some wheel studs off.





YLDTOY Spits Flames at Summernats 26
Plenty of action in the Liqui Moly Burnout Championship at summernats 26. Tony D with YLDTOY was throwing fuel out the cap when it whipped around on the pad, and it didn't take long to light them up. It enough to DQ him. I have no idea what's going on with the front end, it's almost like they decided to run without front shocks.





Summernats 26 - Day Five
Okay guys, sorry for the delay but I needed a short break to unwind after Summernats and had to cach up on some much needed sleep. Here's the grand finale, with the finals for the Dyno and burnouts. Sorry i didn't get much more footage of day five but it was hectic enough getting all this. Hope you enjoyed the videos this year. Remember to SUBSCRIBE so you don't miss a thing.





Summernats 26 - Day Four
The action was hot on and off the track today. My plan was to check out lots more than I did on Day four at Summernats but with other duties I ended up missing more than I got. Sorry about the lack of show cars, and cruising etc. The rain certainly put a damper on the nights activities with the PPG Supercruise being cancelled, but they still had the fireworks and finished off with Rose Tattoo.





Summernats 26 - Day Two
Day two at Summernats didn't really kick off until midday with the Shannons City Cruise down Northbourne where a good selection of cars cruised in front of 30,000 people they reckon. Then the cruising fired up along with judging and more scrutineering. Unfortunately the EPA knocked the schedule around so we missed out on the burnouts, if there was any to be had. We didn't hear or see any, but we saw plenty of tough rides. Tomorrow is going to go off with burnouts, cruising, go-to-whoa, show 'n' shine, Dyno, the unveiling, Hilltop Hoods and that Guinness World Record Attempt..





Jake Edwards Wins Horsepower Heroes
Yes, horsepower Heroes was back this year and there were some tough cars spinning the rollers to see who had the most horsepower. In the end it was Jake Edwards with his turbocharged 496ci Chevy powered Holden Torana. It runs straight methanol with a Motec Computer running 16 injectors. the car has run 8.0 at 179mph with a smaller compressor wheel on the turbo.





2000hp Ford Cortina
Joe Gauci has been the king of the Modified Street Blown class (mini-tubbed, small tyre class) for the last couple years with his wicked Cortina. It's got a twin turbo 370ci Windsor under the bonnet and it runs 7.1 at over 200mph. But close the bonnet it just looks like a tough streeter. What an awesome machine!





Summernats 25 Top Ten Burnouts
Here's the list that everyone has been waiting for, the Summernats 25 Top Ten Burnouts. If you disagree, don't blame me, this is how the Sumemrnats judges saw it. Well done to those that finished in the top ten and better luck next year to those that didn't. The field is getting tough out there.





AGROVB Forgets to Tighten Something
Alan Shuttleworth was lucky to spot this fuel leak on his supercharged Commodore. If it had caught fire it would have been a disaster.





BLOWN is Summernats 26 Burnout Champion
After debuting (and setting fire to) his new ride at Springnats 2012, Mark Schwirse has scored the win of his burnout career with the top prize at Summernats 26 in the Liqui Moly Summernats Burnout Championship. Naturally he scores a slot in next years Burnout Masters and the respect of all burnout loving aussies. Well done dude.





Summernats 26 - Day One Preview
Yep it's that time of year again. Street Machine Summernats is held in Canberra and it is Australia's biggest horsepower party. This year is set to be bigger than ever with over 1700 cars. We take a look at the new burnout pad and catch up with some of the rides coming through scrutineering.





PROPSI Loses A Tailshaft And A Tray
Dave Pendlebury lost an engine last year at Summernats but this year he had a new donk up front and was ready to go nuts. And what happened next was pretty nuts. It's still not really clear what's happened. Either a rim has dug into the track or the tailshaft blew and dug into the track, (both are damaged and there was a deep hole inthe track afterwards). The resulting thump has dislodged the tray from the back end (how did that happen?) and left an expensive repair bill. It's was just one of the memorable moments from Summernast 26.





TOASTR Minivan Rolls At Summernats 26
It was all action at the Liqui Moly Power Pit on Friday with TOASTR falling over during Qualifying for the Liqui Moly Burnout Championship. As you can see the driver was okay, stepping out through the windscreen area within seconds of it going over, and yes the gearbox exploded after the van flipped on it's side raining carnage everywhere.





Summernats 26 Liqui Moly National Burnout Masters Top Ten
So here they are from 10 to 1 - the Liqui Moly National Burnout Masters. Mick Brasher, Adam Slorach, Gary Myers, Fred Watson, Steve Edsall, Craig Whiddett, Gary Myers, Billy Seton, Matt Power & Peter Grmusa. I'll do another video soon showing all 26 Burnout Masters.





SS Ute Puts the BURN in BURNOUT
Not sure what happened here, but something definitely let go in the fuel system of this Holden ute because it went up in a big way in the Liqui Moly Power Pit. Gotta love the firey stomping out the fire with an extinguisher in his hand - WTF?
