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.





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!





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. :)





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.





VLGOD is a Seven Second Screamer
VL turbo Commodores are a uniquely Aussie creation and wickedly fast with the right mods. With a 3-litre straight six (RB30) and a factory single turbo they do okay but these days with RD30 block and massive roller bearing race turbos they are pretty awesome. Check out the flames from the pipes on the two-step limiter.





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.





Silver Bullet Becomes Voodu Bullet
Most car people in Australia would know about Gary Myers Silver Bullet. Well he sold it not that long ago to Victorian car enthusiast Perry Meka. Perry has given the Mustang a freshen up and renamed it Voodu Bullet. It's been resprayed with new airbrushing, given Nitrous and a new FBSS airbag system. Looks pretty cool. For those that don't know the engine is a 392 Hemi with two Superchargers.

Massive Engine Fire
Check it out! We managed to get up close and personal with this engine fire on Armondo Baker's VK at Gazzanats 2011. Fire we go with the external vision, then the on car vision and then throw it all together so you can see it all again. As the guy from Fantastic Four says - Flame On!





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.





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?





13s for $1300 - Project Bluebird - Episode Four
The fourth installment in our 13s for $1300 project. This time we seal off the boot area in preparation for out Nitrous upgrade. Lots of parts are turning up this week, the episodes will be coming thick and fast soon.





R33 Skyline Punches A Rod Out at Gazzanats
There's no doubt that Skylines are decent performance cars but every car has it's limits - as the owner of this R33 found out at Gazzanats. I've never seen a nearly complete conrod leave an engine before, usually they're broken in two.
