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.





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!





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.

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.





BLWNLUX - World's Toughest Hilux
Forget the Top Gear Hilux. This has to be the toughest Toyota Hilux in the world. Brett Battersby has jacked up this '87 Hilux and filled the engine bay with 540 cubes of blown and injected big block Chev. Check out those flames!





Jake Edwards, turbocharged Torana
Jake's single turbo Torana is legendary in Australia. His ability to crank out big horsepower numbers from relatively simple combinations defies belief. It's an awesome sounding car as well. Not sure of the specs when this video was shot because he's had several motors, but it's a Holden V8 between 308 and 393ci with a large Holset single turbo.





NUKINFUTS Gemini - How to get banned from Summernats!
All right guys, things got a bit heated yesterday and people started posting personal details and threatening violence. I've never had to shut down comments before, but I had to do it yesterday. I'm opening up comments again, but keep it sensible please. If it gets stupid again, I'll shut it down for good. Okay guys, this is a very controversial topic. Here's the unedited footage of the Steve Nogas incident. What seems to have happened is that the driver Steve Nogas was told he was disqualified for reason stemming back to his qualifying burnout (disobeying a fire mashal), he forced his car through a group of officials and on to the track, and after the burnout he was escorted from the track and his car towed away. Could have been handled a little better from both sides, but forcing your way on to the track is definitely the wrong way to go. I've posted this video to provide a little clarity to the incident. Summernats statement 11/01/2012 SUMMERNATS STATEMENT ON BURNOUT TRACK INCIDENT 11 January 2012 There was an incident at the burnout track on Sunday 8/1/12 involving entrant Steve Nogas in NUKINFUTS. Steve was seen to forcibly drive his car through officials who were instructing him not to drive at the time, and then did an unauthorised burnout. He was removed by security at the end of his drive and was immediately given a life-time ban by management. The incident was witnessed first hand by Summernats management including the owners. The owners said "We made the immediate life-time ban decision for two reasons. The first and most important reason was we saw a guy place our burnout management team in great physical danger. We were very upset by that. Second, we were furious that all our efforts to establish burnouts as a legitimate motor sport could have been ruined in one moment. This is not just about the Summernats. There are a lot of people out there who want to see burnout events banned across Australia, and all competitors and event promoters alike have a responsibility to protect this awesome sport." Summernats management has reviewed both the incident and the punishment post event, consulting the rules and taking submissions from burnout track officials and the driver. Following this process, the Summernats have revised their decision and have released their official position. "Steve Nogas' life time ban has been suspended on review. He is however banned as an entrant from Summernats 26. As such, Steve is ineligible to enter as a competitor at Summernats 26. However, the Burnout Chief Marshall has invited Steve to make amends with the burnout crew and work alongside them at Summernats 26. This will give Steve a better appreciation of the issues facing officials managing this sport." Summernats gave the following reason for the review. "Our own assessment of the rules led us to the opinion there was no explicit statement about life bans for such behaviour. As such, we felt it was only fair to review the decision. We took into account the fact that Steve has since been extremely apologetic about what he did and has accepted complete responsibility for his actions. He has made several public and private statements expressing his regret. We also considered the intent of his actions. Whilst the consequences could have been severe, we accepted Steve's statement that there was no intent or premeditation to his actions. The one year ban is a consensus decision between Summernats management and the burnout competition chief steward. Steve has gratefully accepted this decision. "The Summernats stands by the actions of our burnout crew. Our crew do an incredible job under very trying conditions. Their primary mission is to maintain the safety of competitors and the audience. Our burnout crew do a superb job and should be commended for their professionalism. "We have learnt important lessons from this incident, and Summernats will be taking a number of measures to ensure this doesn't happen again." Steve Nogas says, "What I've done there is totally out of character for me and totally wrong for any entrant to do. I'm deeply sorry for the way I conducted myself." Summernats management stated, "We want to be very clear. The only reason we re-considered the decision was that our rules were not explicit on life-time bans. Moving forward, the rules will be very explicit. If a driver deliberately and maliciously ignores the instructions of officials on the start line of the burnout pad placing them and the competition in jeopardy, that driver will receive a life-time ban. Apologies after the fact will not be considered. Now we all know the rules, and these will be very clearly laid out in the Participation Guide for Summernats 26 and beyond."





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.

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.





1000HP Ratrod Pick-up Fries the Tyres And Transmission
It's been a while since we've seen Denis Maloney's RatRod Dodge puick-up at a competition and that's because it was getting this new beast of an engine. Denis has just fitted this 1000hp+ 410ci Chrysler small block, complete with methanol injection. It's a crazy beast and more than a little scary. Halfway through the burnout you could tell the auto wasn't really happy and the back wheels weren't spinning they way they should have been, then the flames started and while I haven't confirmed this, I wouldn't be surprised if it was trans fluid causing the fire. Hopefully he'll get it all sorted soon.
