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.

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.

Fitting the new speedo drive turned out to be surprisingly easy and it should give us the extra leeway we need to make a full pass down the quarter without hitting the speed limiter, or clicking it into 4th gear (overdrive) . We haven't removed the speed limiter, we're just working around it.





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.

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.

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.





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.

Fitting the Nitrous kit is fairly involved but we've covered most of the important stuff in this video. Unfortunately I haven't been able to test it yet because I've got to go and get some Nitrous to try. As usual, enjoy the video and if you're trying any of this stuff at home please be careful.





13s for $1300 - Project Bluebird - Episode 11
We fit a Nitrous purge system to our 13s for $1300 Falcon so we can extract the best performance from our Nitrous system. The kit was purchased on ebay for $60, which brings our current total to $1209.

All the action from 2013 as seen by Scotty's Garage. Merry Christmas and have a great 2014





Crazy V8 LAWN MOWER Hits the Dyno
Now here's something you don't see every day - a V8 Lawn Mower. The blower might be a fake but the 200rwhp is definitely real and it turns the tyres almost constantly. Seriously I need one of these things at home.





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.





13s for $1300 - Project Bluebird - Episode Five
Now we get serious. Out comes the old Exhaust and in goes something a bit more free flowing and lighter. The headers cost $230 and I got some Exhaust pieces thrown in for free. all easy to fit up at home. Sorry that this video is a bit longer than usual but it was pretty involved doing all this. Hope your enjoy it. Subscribe for more videos and give the video a thumbs up if you like it.





13s for $1300 - Project Bluebird - Episode Nine Part-1
Now it's time to race! Because of work Committments I wasn't able to fit the XR6 head, but that's not to say I'm not going to fit it later. With the end of April fast approaching I had to make sure I at least got some passes down the dragstrip. And it was alot harder to get the car running fast than we planned. But it's not all bad either, and that's why there is a Part-2 coming soon. Stay Tuned :)





13s for $1300 - Project Bluebird - Episode 12
To fix the lazy shifts we've made a few mods the wiring harness of our Project Bluebird so we can get the trans shifting a little harder. It takes less than $20 of parts, a few wires, and a soldering iron to get the job done. Hopefully it works on the track.





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.
