We love quick cars and don't really care what they're powered by, so we reckon this Toyota 2JZ powered BMW M3 is pretty awesome. Check out the second pass where it runs in the sevens after stepping off the gas well before the finish line. This car is going to be a weapon once they get it sorted!
Twin Turbo V8 Lexus-powered Capri
Joe Geri's Capri recently featured in Street Machine Magazine and it has
run as fast as 8.34 at 164mph. But instead of running a V8 Ford engine Joe
has gone for a 4-litre Lexus V8, which is legally the biggest engine he can
fit to the car and turbo it while
remaining totally street legal. He drives this car to the track, bolts on
some slicks, runs eights and drives it home. It's a true street and strip
warrior. Nice one Joe!
Blown Nova Goes 6.39 on 10.5 tyres
Frank Mamone's blown Chevy Nova is a wicked looking beast and it's got
plenty of grunt to match. Lately he's been racing the Hemi powered Nova inn
the 10.5 class and with some success too. He won at Sydney Dragway recent
at the APSA Pro Street Shootout.
RX2 Rotary Blows a Head Gasket!
Yes, the title is a joke, because Mazda Rotary engines don't have cylinder
heads or head gaskets. Watch the video to see why I've given the video this
Turbo Valiant Wagon Dyno
Remember the Sleeper Wagon http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6wXw8t9oeU ? It
was a Aussie Valiant wagon (A-body Mopar like the Dodge Dart) that I bought
for $250 and fitted a borrowed 440 big block to it.
Year's later I repainted the car Hemi Orange and fitted a turbocharged 245 hemi six to it and even though it
made only 40hp less than the big block it was nowhere near as much fun.
Here's the Dyno tuning
session from about four years ago. These days the wagon just runs a
naturally aspirated 245 hemi six, but I'm thinking of doing some more to it
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.
TUF253 Torana Smokes It Up
Yep, it's powered by a 253 with a Supercharger from a UD truck for a bit of fun.
Shannon loves a bit of burnout action and he's a regular viewer/commentor
here on Scotty's Garage so be nice. :)
Crazy Torana Hatchback Crash at Sydney Dragway
This Torana hatch has a bit of power - maybe too much for those skinny
10.5in tyres. Up front it's got a blown 'n' injected big block chev and the
driver stays into the gas for little too long in the burnout. After a bit
of pitside panel beating it was back out on the track for a shakedown pass.
LSONE Breathes Fire
Rick Fuller's LSONE Commodore always puts on a decent smokeshow but a spurt
of flame through the bonnet cut things short.
SMKNLS at UBC6
It's an LS1, so you know there's going to be limiter action.
