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.
T4TUFF Burns The Guardrails at Kandos
With rain closing in the Kandos organisers decided to go with Saturday's
qualifying results, which left entrants to have some fun on Sunday.
Matt Power went nuts with his Holden One-Tonner and gave the fans a huge
fire show that rivalled KRANKY's fire from last year.
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.
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.
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. :)
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.
UNLOAD Flames Up Again at NSW Pro Burnouts
When you see just how nice Steve Loaders UNLOAD is then it's hard to
believe he actually does burnouts with it. But not only does he do
burnouts, he also seems to set it alight pretty regularly. I think the
score is three out of four so far.
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.
R33 Skyline Punches A Rod Out at Gazzanats
There's no doubt that Skylines are decent performance cars but every car
has it's limits - as the owner of this R33 found out at Gazzanats. I've
never seen a nearly complete conrod leave an engine before, usually they're
broken in two.
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 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
CUTSIK Comes Third at Dubbo
Craig Whiddett is having a pretty good year. He came 5th at Summernats,
second at Kandos and third at the NSW Pro Burnouts in Dubbo. It's not a bad
thing either with an EFI 6-litre with a factory alloy block under all that
