JAKES MYERS First Burnout - the tradition continues
We've been waiting to see young Jake do his first burnout for a while and he got his chace at Dubbo during the NSW Pro Burnouts.
Not only did he do well, he actually beat his old man Gary and first fourth behind three current Burnout Masters. Not a bad effort for his first outing.
Performance Car Mania 2011
Performance Car Mania is quickly becoming the premiere modified car event
in Victoria, and it's not hard to see why. The organisers set everything up
to maximise the fun for the entrants. And if the entrants are happy then
the spectators are as well, because they get to see some of the coolest
cars around cutting loose. The new quarter mile strip was an interesting
addition and although it was a tad bumpy in places it made for some
We've squeezed as much action as we could into a reasonable time frame, but
keep your eyes open for planty more vids from this event in the near
EVILXA - Revamped and Smokin' Hot
EVILXA was looking a bit sad after hitting a barrier at Summernats and a
few burnout fires (we show fire footage from Gazzanats), so Peter Grmusa
has given the XA Ute a birthday and covered it in a mix of PPG Vibrance
(Key Lime green & white by Auto Passion) and vinyl wrap (by Bling Designs).
He invited us out to watch his debut burnout at a small gathering at an
undisclosed location. As you can see he's got plenty of grunt thanks to the
Powerhouse-built 530ci big block, but still manages to control it
beautifully in the tight confines of the space provided.
Clint FIRES UP at NSW Pro Burnouts
It was great to see Clint Ogilvie back on the burnout track after such a
long break. There's no blower on the Torana now, Clint has elected to go
for naturally aspirated power with the 330 cube Holden pumping out nearly
600hp with big revs.
Unfortunately he had to cut his burnout short at Dubbo with this not so
small fire but it couldn't have been too serious because he drove it off
the pad afterwards.
WONAGO Tries For The Perfect Flame Job
Justen Brown was also a busy man at Motorvation with two cars in the
burnouts. One in the Open class, and one in the Blown class. This was his
Blown class entry WONAGO which scored third place in the finals after this
And yes I did run away like a little girl every time he pointed the back
end at me. :)
NSW PRO BURNOUTS - February 2nd 2013
NSW PRO BURNOUTS. Make sure you don't miss the biggest burnout comp in NSW
with over $25,000 up for grabs. It's happening at Morris Park Speedway in
Dubbo on February 2nd 2013. Check it out on Facebook.
WRAPT - RB30 Turbo Powered Corolla
I was pretty amazed to learn this little Corolla was packing an RB30 turbo engine up front. Obviously it's stuck
a fair way back into the firewall, but it gave a good account of itself in
the Lqui Moly Summernats 26 Burnout comp.
Jake Edwards Wins Horsepower Heroes
Heroes was back this year and there were some tough cars spinning the
rollers to see who had the most horsepower. In the end it
was Jake Edwards with his turbocharged
496ci Chevy powered Holden Torana. It runs straight methanol with a Motec
Computer running 16 injectors. the car has run 8.0 at 179mph with a smaller
compressor wheel on the turbo.
T4TUFF Wins NSW Pro Burnouts
How would you like to score $10,000 for a burnout? That's what Matt Power
did at Dubbo for the NSW Pro Burnouts when he took on the best from NSW,
VIC and QLD. The low and mean Holden tonner needed alot of work after it's
fire last weekend at Kandos but Matt hooked in and got it sorted and
without a doubt the blown 540 big block was the loudest engine on the day.
EVILXA Finishes Second at Dubbo
NSW Pro Burnouts saw a reverse of the finishing order at Summernats with
Peter Grmusa finishing second behind Matt Power. Big blocks seem to be
taking all the wins these days.
EVILXA - SUMMERNATS 26 LIQUI-MOLY NATIONAL BURNOUT MASTER 2013
Peter Grmusa reckons that Powerhouse Engines are the reason why he's had
such a good year on the burnout pad. The engine has been ultra-reliable and
trouble free which frees Peter up to concentrate on driving. And drive it
Peter smoked out a quality field of entrants to take the Liqui Moly
National Burnout Masters Trophy for 2013 and take home the $15,000 cheque.
With the rest of his wins this year he's up around the $40K mark in terms
of winnings. Well done Peter.
GM176 - Fourth Place - Liqui Moly National Burnout Masters
Gary Myers proved why he's one of the best in the country by qualifying not
one, but two cars in the Liqui Moly National Burnout Masters. Then he got
them both into the top ten as well. It was a great burnout but in a field
of great burnouts the judges awarded Gary fourth place with the Mustang
OBNXYS - Old School XY Burnout
I look at this XY sedan and the first words that come to mind is old
school. And that's not a bad thing.
In this day and age of massive polished big 'n' ugly hats and sky high
blowers it's nice to see something a little old and angry.
WILDMICK Sprays Motorvation With Rubber
Mick Hocking's chopped Holden one-tonner is a wild bit of gear and he's
certainly not shy with the right pedal. He scored 6th place with this great
burnout at Motorvation 27 in Perth.
ULEGAL Gets Sparky in Dubbo
He also gets bloody close to the camera. :)
Mick didn't have much luck in Dubbo. As soon as he hit the pad the wind
died to zero and he was stuck in a cloud of his own making and eventally
had to stop to see where he was. This was his 'expression session' burnout
later in the afternoon where he did his best to kill it.
IBLOWN Smokes Out Kandos
Andrew Poole came all the way down from north Queensland for Summernats and
it seems he stuck around for Kandos and Dubbo as well. He certainly showed
why he scored a slot in the masters at Kandos with this great qualifying
burnout which put him in third place. It would have been interesting to see
how he would have gone in the finals if they'd run them.
