13s For $1300 - Project Bluebird - Episode 14

Here we go guys, the episode you've all been waiting for - Episode 14. We take the car for a run at Wilby, an 1/8th mile track in Northern Victoria, for a bit of fun and see if we can win a trophy. Hope you enjoyed the series. If I decide to keep the car I might do a few upgrades later on and see how much quicker we can make it, while keeping the budget low. Stay tuned though because after I tidy up the garage I'm going to start on my new project and it's going to be a big one. Edit: as it turns out this wasn't the last episode so check out the next videos.

13s For $1300 - Project Bluebird - Episode 15
Yep, we've pulled the Project Bluebird - 13s for $1300 Falcon out of the shed again to see what it'll do on the Dyno. I wont spoil the results by writing it hear, you'll have to watch the video to find out. note: I discovered afterwards that the Nitrous bottle was almost empty which would have made a huge difference to power.





13s for $1300 - Project Bluebird - Episode 10
The road so far... and what's coming up next. For those who haven't been following along, the whole idea was to build a cheap drag car - something that could run 13-second quarter mile times for under $1300. Well we've done that and there still more in the budget, so now we're going for 12s.





13s For $1300 - Project Bluebird - Episode 17
We take Project Bluebird, our $1300 race car, to Heathcote Raceway again to see how it goes on the quarter mile after the lastest round of tweaks. The budget still stands at $1249 and with two bottles of Nitrous at the ready we're trying for a 12sec pass. Will we make it? Watch and see.





Don't Open The Hood - Just Don't do it!
If you need an explanation of why they like to have bonnets (hoods) on cars during burnouts then watch this video fight to the end. It's also the reason why I like to films cars until they leave the burnout pad these days. I can't count the amount of times I've turned the camer off and then the radiator or hose has let go.





BLWNLUX - World's Toughest Hilux
Forget the Top Gear Hilux. This has to be the toughest Toyota Hilux in the world. Brett Battersby has jacked up this '87 Hilux and filled the engine bay with 540 cubes of blown and injected big block Chev. Check out those flames!





Scotty's Garage - Dad's Ute - Part 1
Hey guys, got a project on the go. I'm doing a restification on my Dad's old VE Valiant utility - or ute as we call them down under. He left me the ute when he passed away last year and I've decided to give it a tidy up. These are based off the 67-72 A-body Dodge Dart floor pan and I'm bolting a Chrysler big block into it and giving it a general tidy up before the big Chrysler's On The Murray show next month.





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.





Koenigsegg CCX in Sydney
Something a little different. Here's a bit of footage I shot of a Koenigsegg CCX at Motorex last year. They've got some impressive specs. Twin Supercharged 4.7-litre quad cam v8 806hp 0-100kph in 3.2sec 0-200kph in 9.8sec 0-300-0 in 29.2sec Top Speed of 395kph I want a ride. :)





1000HP Ratrod Pick-up Fries the Tyres And Transmission
It's been a while since we've seen Denis Maloney's RatRod Dodge puick-up at a competition and that's because it was getting this new beast of an engine. Denis has just fitted this 1000hp+ 410ci Chrysler small block, complete with methanol injection. It's a crazy beast and more than a little scary. Halfway through the burnout you could tell the auto wasn't really happy and the back wheels weren't spinning they way they should have been, then the flames started and while I haven't confirmed this, I wouldn't be surprised if it was trans fluid causing the fire. Hopefully he'll get it all sorted soon.





Front End Explodes Across the Finish Line
Imagine the shock Greg had when the front end of his Nitrous assisted Falcon disintergrated when he crossed the line at the recent Hardtop Nationals. But he didn't let that stop him; he continued to race the car throughout the afternoon and made it all the way to the final. Too Bad there was no prizemoney to buy a new front end.





WILD XB Coupe Smokin' at Gazzanats 2011
One of several cars that made the trip over from Western Australia to Adelaide for Gazzanats, this XB Falcon coupe showed that the WA guys can deliver just as well as the eastern staters. Form the overseas viewers you might recogonise the body shape as the same model car they used in the Mad Max films. Who doesn't love a blown Falcon Coupe?





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?





NUMNUTZ - Who Needs a V8?
Not Adam Slorach, that's for sure. He takes it to the big V8's with his little 202ci Holden six and shows them how it's done.





13s For $1300 - Project Bluebird - Episode 16
After hitting the Dyno last week we decided to head to the track again and see if we could improve on our last effort. But we shaved a bit more weight off the car in the meantime - another 43kg off the total.





Wagon Westoration - Part 1
With Chryslers on the Murray - Australia's Biggest Mopar Show - just around the corner I thought I'd get the old wagon out of the shed and get it ready for rego. Should be a bit of fun and hopefully it'll be a nice cruiser for my wife and kids to enjoy.
