Holden One Tonners don't come much tougher than Matty Power's T4TUFF. It's got a blown and injected 540ci big block Chev and he tows it all the way from Lightning Ridge to attend burnout comps all over the country.
T4TUFF - Summernats 25 Burnout Masters Second Place
After qualifying for the top five last year Matty Power was looking strong for a big finish at summernats 24, but an engine fire cut things short and he came fifth. This year there were no fires, but there was plenty of smoke as he destroyed several pairs of tyres to finish second overall. Killer stuff.
National Burnout Masters Finals - Summernats 24
The Liqui-Moly National Burnout Masters at Summernats 24 was the most kick arse collection of burnout warriors ever seen in this country. It started with 18 cars which was quickly whittled down to just five contenders; Matt Power, Peter Gray, Steve Sines, Mick Brasher and Gary Myers.
This video just shows a small part of each burnout in the top five, I'll post the whole of each individual burnout in the next couple days.
Two Superchargers, No Waiting for smoke!!
I used to think this car was called 24TUFF for some reason, and with 2 blowers I guess that works as well, but it's actually T4TUFF and it is Tough with a capital T. Matt Power is the pilot of the flame throwing smoke monster, and even though it was a killer burnout Matt finished 13th overall, that's how tough the competition was.
Blown Nova Goes 6.39 on 10.5 tyres
Frank Mamone's blown Chevy Nova is a wicked looking beast and it's got plenty of grunt to match. Lately he's been racing the Hemi powered Nova inn the 10.5 class and with some success too. He won at Sydney Dragway recent at the APSA Pro Street Shootout.
KRANKY Burns Down Kandos
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.
ANARCY - Blown Torana Hatch
Harry Joss from Queensland gives his blown 355 Holden powered Torana hatchback a solid workout at the recent APSA Pro Street Shootout. As you can see high-8's are no problem at all, and it sounds tough.
T4TUFF Smokes Out Kandos
Matty Power's big block Tonner is a smoke machine! After his second place at the National Burnout Masters he was tipped to give a strong showing at Kandos and didn't disappoint. Unfortunately getting trapped against the fence hurt his chances of a placing.
KXW406 - Untubbed Falcon Goes Low-8's on Radials
Could this be the quickest untubbed car in the country? Dunno, but it sure is fast and running low 8-sec ETs on drag radials is pretty awesome. Steve Bezzina's XW Falcon runs a single turbo 406ci small block Windsor V8 with injection controlled by a Big Stuff3 ECU.
EVILXA is a Smoke Machine
With burnouts like this I might have to start carrying an oxygen mask to the track just so I can breathe. Peter Grmusa was in fine style at Summernats 25.
NUTTD8 - Oh My God, Extreme Burnout Warning!
Bloody hell, I've heard some cars get punished in my time but this is ridiculous! How can an engine take so much punishment and live? Obviously Jason Rose made the top ten with this skid but from memory he had to abort the final burnout to prevent engine damage. I can see why!
VN SS Manual Burnout
Atlas Grey VN SS Commodores are startign to become a bit collectible these days so it's almost strange to see one treated this way in the burnout pit. But then again we see all kinds of cars in the burnouts these days, so maybe it's not so strange at all. :)
Wagon Westoration - Part-4
It's been a while coming because I've been pretty busy but here's part-4 of our VG Wagon fix up. I'll have part 5 up soon.
BL560 & USA502 - Camaro Versus Monaro Burnout
We've seen them both on the pad before and even at the same time but never together on the Summernats burnout pad - Peter and Debbie Gray both killing tyres at the same time at Summernats 25. As you can hear, the crowd loved it.
