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.
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.
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.
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
Matt Power (T4TUFF) - 5th Place National Burnout Masters 2011
After fighting through a field of 18 super strong contenders Matt Power was
one of the Top Five shooting it out for the $15,000 first prize at
Summernats 24 in the first ever National Burnout Masters. Unfortunately a
fire cut Matty's run short and that killed his chances at the top prize but
he still scored some cash for this effort. He was back on the pad three
weeks later at Kandos.

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.
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.
FTHIS - F-truck with Lambo Doors
We've seen plenty of cars with Lambo door conversions but never an F-truck.
Flames erupt around the blower about halfway through the burnout.
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.
Ben Bray's Burnout Ute
Remember this beast? Ben Bray's Holden VY SS ute. They built this car
specifically for burnout from a brand new Holden shell and filled it full
supercharged Hemi goodness. Here's some video of it cutting loose at
Supernats some years ago.
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
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.
