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.
Jamboree 2011 - Cool Cars, Hot Women
I decided to stick my head in for a look at Jamboree 2011 while on holidays
in Queensland recently. Cool cars and hot women make this event a mandatory
addition to everyone's event list.
There's a couple little editing glitches in the video, but it took so long
to render and upload, I decided to let them be.
Jet Powered Van Fires Things Up
Crank up the volume for this one. This jet powered van not only puts on a
good fire show but it also hauls arse down the track at Heathcote.
Unfortunately there was no time recorded but it looks pretty damn fast.
Summernats 25 - Day Three
Having trouble loading this file up. hopefully this time it works.
Okay guys, I finally got this to load up. All the action from Friday with
unveiling, bands and plenty of cruising. What a huge day!
Summernats 23 - Day 2 -Thursday
Summernats was strangely quiet today for a Thursday, but there's a whole
bunch of killer cars around and more blowers than you can imagine. here's
just a small portion of some of the cars going through scrutineering and
some cruising. sorry, I didn't get to the judging hall today.
Better update tomorrow.
GM671 - Summernats Burnout Third Place
I've had nothing but trouble posting this video so I hope you all enjoy it.
After dropping a valve in his Mustang Gary Myers put all his
efforts into the Summernats Burnout Comp with the XA Coupe. He almost got
there too ad showed that yuou don't need a blower to get on the podium.
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
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.
HQ383 Lights Up The Pad! Burnout Winner Valvoline Springnats 2010
What can you say about this burnout except wow!
Just to update, Mick sullivan owns this HQ Premier and it's powered by a
383 Holden Stroker with a 6/71 blower. The fire was caused by a new
methanol injection system he was trialling in an attempt to keep the blower
cool. The engine itself runs on petro,l but the methanol is there just to
help cool the intake charge. This video illustrates the dangers of having
your Exhausts exiting too close to the
tyres (steel belts cause sparks) while running on methanol. If you run
meth, it's adviseable to run your pipes all the way to the back bumper.
Wild 9sec Falcon has trouble going around corners
Now don't get me wrong, I love this car. I've been in this car doing insane
speeds down the main straight at Eastern Creek, but it's not the best car
to be fanging around corners.
But it is wickedly quick in a straight line with genuine 9sec time slips.
Not bad for a street driven car.
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.
