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 run.
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.
Going Mentle - Extremely Close Call
Mentle at Easternats. This Camaro is Mentle by name and Mental by nature. Milan Dokic almost lost it big time during this go to whoa run at Easternats a few years back. Luckily he kept it off the wall and delivered a smoking victory donut to celebrate.
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 embarrassing.
