James North might need to rename his car FRYZME (Fries me) after this huge fire at Gazzanats. The heat from the flames was ferocious, even with the car so far away, but the awesome fire fighters standing trackside were on the case quickly.
MUT308 Erupts in Flames at Gazzanats
The new injection combination seems to be working well on Adam Mutimer's VL
Commodore, it looks to be running better than ever. But it still has a
couple of surprises up it's sleeve as it showed at Gazzanats with this
sudden fireball during burnout qualifying.
Keen eyed viewers might notice that Adam wasn't behind the wheel.
Scotty's Garage 2010 - Close Calls & Conflagrations
It's been a big year for fires and crashes (near misses anyway), and we
thought it was time to look back at all the craziness of 2010. With
Summernats just around the corner we'll be hitting even more events in
Close Call at Sydney Dragway
How close was this? Everyone held their breath as this pink LJ Torana got
wildly out of shape at Sydney Dragway yesterday (14/01/2011) but the driver
managed to get it under control and then keep it off the wall. He didn't
miss by much but as they say, it doesn't matter if you miss by an inch or a
mile, a miss is still a miss.
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 Six
I was a quarter way through installing the Nitrous when I realised we needed to change the
intake so i made up what i call, "The Great Big Box of Love". It should
help get some cold air into the engine as well as providing a better
platform for the fogger nozzle. It's not the best looking intake ever made
but it'll do the job nicely.
Thumbs up if you like the project and keep watching, we've got more
episodes to come. Share it with your car friends on Facebook too.
Next up is the Nitrous install.
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.
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.
Summer Skidfest at Heathcote Raceway
It's the last hit out for the year, and the last chance to check your rides
before Summernats, the Summer Skidfest was all about good time and having
fun. As the name suggests there were plenty of burnout but there was also
some powerskids, caravan racing, and the massive meltdown of the remains of
said caravan racing.
For the first time out it was a great little event and hopefully we'll see
it again next year.
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.
Avalon $5k Burnout Finals
Avalon Speedway put up a healthy prize pool all the way back to fifth place
for their recent burnout comp. First prize was $5000 which should pay for a
few new tyres and a few drums of fuel.
We won't spoil the finish but there were some interesting results in the
VL Turbo has a bad day at the track.
You've got to feel sorry for this guy. First he hits the wall and then he
breaks the tailshaft. But it has some power, watch it twist up off the
Sorry guys, I finally got around to fixing the aspect ratio on this video.
Now you can watch it how it was meant to be seen. :)
I can't believe so many have watched this.
WONAGO Goes Off at Gazzanats
We tried something a little different this time by mounting a small Kodak
camera off the off Justen Brown's headlight on his WONAGO Commodore ute. It
might not be as good as the Go Pro cameras but it looks pretty damn good I
Was an awesome machine, and some awesome footage too I reckon.
