Think of the song by Drowning Pool and you'll see where we're headed. Mike Roycroft unleashes destruction on his Valiant sedan unlike anything we've ever seen before. How big a hole does it have to be to fit a complete piston out of it? That's pretty wild.
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
National Burnout Masters Finals - Summernats 24
The Liqui-Moly National Burnout Masters at Summernats 24 was the most kick
arse collection of burnout warriors ever seen in this country. It started
with 18 cars which was quickly whittled down to just five contenders; Matt
Power, Peter Gray, Steve Sines, Mick Brasher and Gary Myers.
This video just shows a small part of each burnout in the top five, I'll
post the whole of each individual burnout in the next couple days.
1000HP Ratrod Pick-up Fries the Tyres And Transmission
It's been a while since we've seen Denis Maloney's RatRod Dodge puick-up at
a competition and that's because it was getting this new beast of an
engine. Denis has just fitted this 1000hp+ 410ci Chrysler small block,
complete with methanol injection. It's a crazy beast and more than a little
scary. Halfway through the burnout you could tell the auto wasn't really
happy and the back wheels weren't spinning they way they should have been,
then the flames started and while I haven't confirmed this, I wouldn't be
surprised if it was trans fluid causing the fire. Hopefully he'll get it
all sorted soon.
Summernats 25 - Day Two
The first real day at Summernats 25 and while it's mostly a set up day
there was plenty of action in and around. The entry list is looking full
with at least 1380 pre-entries and today was much busier than this time
last year. enjoy the video guys, I'm going to bed.
Kandos Street Machine Show 2012
All the action from Kandos Street Machine and Hot Rod show in 2012. It's a
cool little show on the other side of the Blue Mountains with plenty of
kick arse action and lots of oppotunities to turn rubber into smoke.
Full individual burnouts will be uploaded over the next few weeks.
UCSMOKE Attempts the Corkscrew
I'm sure there's some cones in there somewhere in amongst that smoke, but
Steven Loader doesn't seem to care. He obliterates the course with his
supercharged Holden Premier before limping off with one blown back tyre.
ULEGAL Goes Nuts at Summernats 25
The Liqui-Moly National Burnout Masters is the toughest burnout competition
in the country and the brings the best out of all the competitors. Check
out Mick Brasher in Action with his ULEGAL Corolla at Summernats 25.
KILARB - High Speed VL Crash at Sydney Dragway
Considering the speed this car was travelling when it all went wrong this
accident could have been much worse. It looks like the car has pushed out a
head gasket or had a line let go and put fluid under the tyres which then
put it into the wall. As you can see there was a fair bit of damage to the
UCSMOKE Becomes UC-CONRODS
With 540 cubes and a 14/71 blower Steve Loader has one of the most
impressive engine combinations in the Australian burnout scene. He let it
all hang out at Springnats, and we mean that literally with a couple of
rods punching their way through the side of the sump. Now the question is,
will he have time to get it all together before the Burnout Masters at
Summernats 25 Liqui-Moly National Burnout Masters Finals
Here's some of the action from the Liqui-Moly National Burnout Masters
finals at Summernats 25. We've shown the guys in the order that they
finished from last to first. The winner was Donny Elphick, followed by
Matty Power and Jason Earle in third place.
Jack Catches Fire
More craziness from Summernats 25 as some Holden ute goes up in flames
during a burnout. Thankfully the Summernats fire fighters are always on the
FRYNGM - Revs It Up For Summernats 25
If you ever need to show someone how good Gen-III engines are juist show
them Steve Whelan's FRYNGM Holden SS ute. Every comp he revs the snot out
of his VY ute and it just keeps on keeping on.
Crazy 1200hp Station Wagon
We see some pretty insane stuff from time to time but this totally out
there HQ Holden Station Wagon ranks right up there. It's got a blown and
injected big block Chev up front and it made 977hp AT THE TYRES on the
Summernats Dyno. So
we're not exaggerating with that 1200hp claim.
Gotta love those crazy Queenslanders.
TUFFLJ - Over 1500hp of Supercharged Fury
We don't see many burnouts from the centrifugal blown guys, which is a same
really because with their top end power they'd have no probs cranks out the
smoke. Andrew Griffiths runs this tough LJ Torana (pun intended) and it's
got a 430ci Chevy small block with a Vortech XX-trim blower. Andrew claims
it's made over 1500hp AT THE TYRES. WOW!
Unfortunately the blower belt shredded itself and the officials told him to
shut it down. Andrew was pissed off afterwards, "I thought it was leaking
or on fire or something, it still makes planty of power to smoke the tyres
without the blower - I would have kept going."
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.
