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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
Summernats 26 - Day Five
Okay guys, sorry for the delay but I needed a short break to unwind after
Summernats and had to cach up on some much needed sleep.
Here's the grand finale, with the finals for the Dyno and burnouts. Sorry i
didn't get much more footage of day five but it was hectic enough getting
all this. Hope you enjoyed the videos this year. Remember to SUBSCRIBE so
you don't miss a thing.
Gary Myers burnout - incar footage
We start with the outside view of Gary's beautiful supercharged Mustang before switching to the
inside view where we can see the master at work. He makes it all look so
SIC40L Revs It Up
After watching plenty of stock sixes trying their best at Kandos it was
refreshing to see and hear this EF XR6 going hard at Kandos. What makes it
different is that it's got a twin cam BARRA motor under the bonnet and he's
also removed the rev limiter. Not sure what RPM it was pulling but
certainly more than most and he won the 6cyl class with this skid.
