Engine Explosion - Let The Pistons Hit The Floor

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 flames!





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.





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.





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.





11,000rpm Burnout at UBC2
UPDATE - Talked to Harry about this video the other day. He confirmed that the tacho recall read 11,200rpm and he also told me the engine didn't die, it sheered the rollpin in the distributor and put the timing way out. which is why it turned over but wouldn't fire properly. the engine did another 3 or 4 shows after this and even then it only needed bearing and valve springs. There's no mechanical sympathy here. Listen to this thing scream when Harry Haig gets into it during the second annual Ultimate Burnout Challenge held at Avalon Speedway. The engine sounds more like something you'd hear in a pro-stock car than on the burnout track. It's no surprise that the engine can't handle that kind of sustained rpms but it's still amazing to watch and listen to.





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.





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 good. So for those that haven't seen it in action, here you go.





Massive Engine Fire
Check it out! We managed to get up close and personal with this engine fire on Armondo Baker's VK at Gazzanats 2011. Fire we go with the external vision, then the on car vision and then throw it all together so you can see it all again. As the guy from Fantastic Four says - Flame On!





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 line. 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.





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.





FLI20Y - Turbo & Nitrous Datsun Burnout
It takes a brave man to face the Summernats burnout crowd with a four-cylinder, but not only did Michael Ramsey pull it off he actually managed to get the to cheer for him. To be honest it was a pretty good skid as well.





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.





Seven Second Supra - Quickbitz
I'd didn't much in the way of details from the owner but this bloody quick Supra made the trip up from Melbourne to try the Sydney traction - and they liked wha they found. With a GT55 pumping around 40psi Boost through the worked 3-litre it's got some speed for a full bodied car. Look out for more from this car I reckon.
