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.





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.

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 Eight Part-1
Here it is, the long awaited Part Eight of our 13s for $1300 project. But unfortunately it's so big that I had to split it into two parts. This is some seriously heavy duty tech and not recommended for the diy home mechanic. I reckon you should leave this one up to the professionals. Please remember, working on cars is dangerous, and this part is probably more dangerous than most. This video is purely for entertainment purposes, I take no resposibility if someone tries to copy what I've done and hurt themselves.





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!





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 Seven
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.





Performance Car Mania 2011
Performance Car Mania is quickly becoming the premiere modified car event in Victoria, and it's not hard to see why. The organisers set everything up to maximise the fun for the entrants. And if the entrants are happy then the spectators are as well, because they get to see some of the coolest cars around cutting loose. The new quarter mile strip was an interesting addition and although it was a tad bumpy in places it made for some interesting racing. We've squeezed as much action as we could into a reasonable time frame, but keep your eyes open for planty more vids from this event in the near future.

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.





13s for $1300 - Project Bluebird - Episode Eight Part-2
The second part of our mini-spool and gear install. Fitting the mini-spool is something that most competent home mechanics can do - the gears are slightly harder. I had to cut some corners with the gear install so i'm not showing everthing involved in the gear install, but suffice to say I think you leave it up to the experts. hope you enjoy the video, hopefully we'll get to race the car soon.
