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.
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
Summernats 26 - Day Three
Friday at Summernats 26 started with a bang. First up there was the
Guinness World Record for Largest Simultaneous Burnout with 69 cars on the
pad at the same time, then it was into burnout qualifying with a massive
amount of action there. All the while there was constant cruising, show car
judging and Dyno
(which we'll try and get to today) and then it was time for the unveiling
in the Meguairs Pavilion and the Hilltop Hoods on the main stage - and I've
got to say it was the first time I'd heard them, but they were AWESOME!
Can't wait until Saturday.

Here's the Top Ten videos from Scotty's Garage for 2012. These are the top
viewed videos from my channel this year as picked by you guys and girls.
So what's your favourite? And why? Or is there something you reckon that
should have made the list. Let me know in the comments section below.
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.
UNLOAD Catches Fire At Summernats 26
It's been one of the most highly anticipated cars of 2012 featuring on
several magazine covers, winning show awards and generally blowing minds.
Steve Loader UNLOAD Commodore belongs to a new category of cars I like to
call PRO BURNOUT - It's a burnout machine with a showcar finish.
But Steve being Steve, he couldn't keep it away from the burnout track. He
put it on the pad both Friday and Sunday and did spectacular shows both
days, but check out the fire after his Sunday skid. Luckily it didn't seem
to damage the paint, but it looked pretty bad at the time. Hopefully we'll
get to see more of this car on the pad soon.
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.
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.
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..
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
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.
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.
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.
Jake Edwards Wins Horsepower Heroes
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.
SILLY - Third Place - Liqui Moly National Burnout Masters
Billy Seton's HQ was't even running when they took it to Summernats 26, and
he almost got DNF'ed when the steering coupling broke in Master Qualifying
but he stormed though the finals to score third place. It was a fairy tale
finish for the Junee tyre fryer and he's "Over the moon" with the result.
