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.
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
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.
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
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?
VL Turbo has a bad day at the track.
You've got to feel sorry for this guy. First he hits the wall and then he
breaks the tailshaft. But it has some power, watch it twist up off the
Sorry guys, I finally got around to fixing the aspect ratio on this video.
Now you can watch it how it was meant to be seen. :)
I can't believe so many have watched this.
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.
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.
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.
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. :)
Queen St BMW running a custom Quad-rotor
Yep, this car runs a quad rotor engine, that four rotors in a row. It's not
one of the famed 26B's but it is two 13B's bolted together.
This was one of the early runs of the car, I'm pretty sure it's much faster now.
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.
