Not the best angle I know thanks to the ANDRA steward choosing to stand in the road but this RX7 bouces off the wall hard and then into the wall on the other side of the track. As far as I know the driver was fine.
There's no denying the power of these little rotary powered Madzas. Watch
as they try and tear themselves in two running down the quarter at WSID in
Awsome wheelstand - Black RX7
Check out the wild wheelstand from this black RX7 at WSID. Awesome!
Therte's two different wheelstands, make sure you watch both.
Australia's Quickest Nitrous Car - Wilson/Kryger Camaro
Edit: It's been pointed out there might be a couple of quicker Nitrous cars in Australia but regardless this car
is pretty impressive so I'll let the title stand.
I'm pretty sure this is Australia's quickest Nitrous car, although if I'm wrong someone will
let me know.
With a monster motor and massive gas kit the car runs some seriously quick
times considering it's only on 10.5 rubber. It's still early days for the
black Camaro, owned by
Johnny Wilson and Simon Kryger, who knows how fast they'll get it going?
Summernats23 - CMEFRY goes up in flames
Can you imagine a more Apt numberplate for this car? CMEFRY (See Me Fry)
goes up in flames at the end of a massive smokefest. Grab the next issue of
Street Machine magazine to see some amazing pictures by Adam Morrissey from
Ford V8 Singing on the Salt Lake - Speedweek 2009
Listen to this V8 Ford wail as it's put through it paces at Lake Gairdner
in Aouth Australia during Speedweek 2009. Salt lake racing is highly
addictive and should be approached with caution.
The car is an EF Falcon sedan and it went 190mph+, it almost broke the
200mph mark that year, but they managed to go past 200mph this year. Well
Best Powerskids at Gazzanats 2011
Just get on it and see how long it'll smoke - that's what powerskids are
all about. No brakes, just a heavy right foot and an arm full of steering
lock, just watch out for those walls.
Crazy Torana Hatchback Crash at Sydney Dragway
This Torana hatch has a bit of power - maybe too much for those skinny
10.5in tyres. Up front it's got a blown 'n' injected big block chev and the
driver stays into the gas for little too long in the burnout. After a bit
of pitside panel beating it was back out on the track for a shakedown pass.
BEST. POWERSKID. EVER.
I've seen some crazy powerskid action in my time but this Torana takes the
cake. With a big hit of Nitrous and a
heavy right foot this guy smokes the full length of the track in and aesome
display of skill and power.
If you've got a better powerskid then send me a video response.
VL Commodore spins at 160mph+
Turn your volume up for this one. Watch as Max Ellery spins out at over
160mph in his VL Commodore. Clean undies were most probably needed
Doorslammer Crash at WSID - heavy hit!
Initially I was filming the Pac Performance MX6 in the video because it was
running some numbers that day, but I had to switch cars when this Ford
Probe Doorslammer lost control and hammered the wall at around half track.
Thankfully the driver stepped out without a scratch.
Rotary burnout - THELAW
Little RX3 sedan with THELAW numberplates does a burnout. Rotary's doing
burnouts are rare enough, this one does a decent skid so I decided to post
it up. a little flame show and a burst radiator hose at the end doesn't
hurt either. :)
Project Digger Burnout Testing
Back when the Army's Project Digger was first getting built I was invited
along to film some burnout testing. As you can see the car wasn't finished
but with time getting short before Summernats 23 they wanted to make sure
it was right to go.
Unfortunately, as a direct result of the testing they decided to not do any
burnout at Summernats that year due to cooling issues. But it sure looked
So for those that haven't seen it in action, here you go.
