I've seen some crazy powerskid action in my time but this Torana takes the cake. With a big hit of Nitrous and a heavy right foot this guy smokes the full length of the track in and aesome display of skill and power.
If you've got a better powerskid then send me a video response.
Jet Powered Van Fires Things Up
Crank up the volume for this one. This jet powered van not only puts on a
good fire show but it also hauls arse down the track at Heathcote.
Unfortunately there was no time recorded but it looks pretty damn fast.
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
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
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.
KILLA-B Camaro Hits the Burnout
It's been one of the most high anticipated burnout cars in recent year.
Steve Nogas and his KILLA-B Camaro hit the pad at Springnats
2012. With 632 cubes up front under an insanely huge 16/71 blower, it's got
way more power than it needs.
This is footage of his Sunday burnout. If you're wondering about the damage
to the front quarter, he gave the wall a solid tap on Saturday.
Sleeper Civic - Don't mess with this little beast!
More info added: This footage is of a 1/4 mile run, not an 1/8 mile as some
wankers are saying.
For the record this is in full street trim with full interior and is on
175/60/13 street tyres. It has the original 1975 EB 1200 block albeit with
a 1300 crank and oversize pistons. It does run a custom sized GT28 turbo, motec, forged pistons, and some
significant head work. The gearbox is stock with an open dif. Stock motor
was 37hp atw at this stage it was 253hp atw. Angus has since fitted forged
roads, custom gearbox, lsd. Last I heard it ran a 12.1 back in 2005. It
was the fastest fwd in full street trim in Aus at one stage.
This car used to crack me up when I was racing regularly in Sydney. I
thought my 11sec V6 Commodore was a sleeper but this Civic was such an
understated car that no-one would have guessed it was such a little weapon.
Imagine getting your doors blown off by this little thing? Pretty
Best Powerskids at Gazzanats 2011
Just get on it and see how long it'll smoke - that's what powerskids are
all about. No brakes, just a heavy right foot and an arm full of steering
lock, just watch out for those walls.
1TUFSS Makes An Impressive Amount of Smoke
Normally we don't expect much from late model cars but this VE Commodore
impressed a few with the sheer amount of smoke it was producing. It had
smoke coming out of all orifices at Avalon.
Performance Car Mania 2013
Scotty's Garage 2000th Video!!!
All the crazy action from Performance Car Mania 2013. With three days of
cruising, burnouts, powerskids, Dyno and more, it's a great
event and this year there were almost500 entrants so it was busy as hell.
Corowa Autofest 2010 - 1000hp Torana splits balancer on the dyno
This Torana is a pretty mean bit of gear, with a Vortech YSi hanging off
the side of a 434cube small block chev. It was looking promising to spin up
some huge numbers on the Dyno when the balancer split.
Although there was some concern the crank might have snapped the snout off,
it was later confirmed that it was just the balancer that broke.
Rotary Crash at WSID
Not the best angle I know thanks to the ANDRA steward choosing to stand in
the road but this RX7 bouces off the wall hard and then into the wall on
the other side of the track. As far as I know the driver was fine.
