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
Summernats 25 Top Ten Burnouts
Here's the list that everyone has been waiting for, the Summernats 25 Top
Ten Burnouts. If you disagree, don't blame me, this is how the Sumemrnats
judges saw it.
Well done to those that finished in the top ten and better luck next year
to those that didn't. The field is getting tough out there.
Engine Explosion - WILDLH Blows Chunks At Gazzanats
This crazy Torana from WA sounds awesome but unfortunately the long term
abuse caught up with it at Gazzanats in Adelaide. Not sure what it actually
broke but I'm guessing there were peices of conrod laying on the ground in
that expanding pool of oil. It's an expensive sport.
KRANKY Burns Down Kandos - Burnout Fire!!
We've seen plenty of burnouts end with a fire but we've never seen one
start with a fire. Rodney Waters HQ sedan goes up in flames right from the
start at Kandos. It's crazy insane.
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.
ULEGAL Supercharged V8 Corolla Dumps It's Guts at UBC3
Mick Brasher doesn't have much mechanical sympathy, in fact i don't think
he knows the meaning of the term. So it's no surprise that his little
Corolla would eventually lunch iteself. It's been pretty reliable so far,
but unfortunately let go at UBC3 on what was looking to be a cracker of a
WTOFIT - Crazy Rotary Powered Van Burnout
We popped in to the Good Fryday Burnout at Sydney Dragway to check out the
action and found this totally insane little rotary powered Suzuki van
ripping a few skids. Check out that glowing Exhaust. We've seen a few hot systems in our
time but never one that glowed so brightly.
Project Digger Burnout Testing
Back when the Army's Project Digger was first getting built I was invited
along to film some burnout testing. As you can see the car wasn't finished
but with time getting short before Summernats 23 they wanted to make sure
it was right to go.
Unfortunately, as a direct result of the testing they decided to not do any
burnout at Summernats that year due to cooling issues. But it sure looked
So for those that haven't seen it in action, here you go.
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.
Summernats 25 - Day Three
Having trouble loading this file up. hopefully this time it works.
Okay guys, I finally got this to load up. All the action from Friday with
unveiling, bands and plenty of cruising. What a huge day!
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.
HQ383 Lights Up The Pad! Burnout Winner Valvoline Springnats 2010
What can you say about this burnout except wow!
Just to update, Mick sullivan owns this HQ Premier and it's powered by a
383 Holden Stroker with a 6/71 blower. The fire was caused by a new
methanol injection system he was trialling in an attempt to keep the blower
cool. The engine itself runs on petro,l but the methanol is there just to
help cool the intake charge. This video illustrates the dangers of having
your Exhausts exiting too close to the
tyres (steel belts cause sparks) while running on methanol. If you run
meth, it's adviseable to run your pipes all the way to the back bumper.
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.
