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
BEST. POWERSKID. EVER.
I've seen some crazy powerskid action in my time but this Torana takes the
cake. With a big hit of Nitrous and a
heavy right foot this guy smokes the full length of the track in and aesome
display of skill and power.
If you've got a better powerskid then send me a video response.
Action from Supernats 2005 (I think). A few crashes and interesting tidbits
from the archives.
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.
HB Torana loses it and hits the wall at ECR.
This is Phil Kerjean losing it in his Chevy powered HB Torana at Eastern
Creek Raceway. Phil was competing in the Powerskid comp when he lost it at
high speed in the top end. I believe he's still rebuilding the car.
Here's a video clip I created for Street Machine magazine. It was taken at
Summernats 19, an Australian Street Machine show
The car is a twin turbocharged
LS1powered HSV R8 Clubsport (based off the Holden Commodore platform) that
makes around 1200-1300hp at the rear wheels. On this particular run it
popped out an injector o-ring and sprayed the engine bay with fuel. You can
imagine what happens next.
