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.
KRANKY Burns Down Kandos - Burnout Fire!!
We've seen plenty of burnouts end with a fire but we've never seen one
start with a fire. Rodney Waters HQ sedan goes up in flames right from the
start at Kandos. It's crazy insane.
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.
Summernats23 - CMEFRY goes up in flames
Can you imagine a more Apt numberplate for this car? CMEFRY (See Me Fry)
goes up in flames at the end of a massive smokefest. Grab the next issue of
Street Machine magazine to see some amazing pictures by Adam Morrissey from
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.
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.
Blown Nova Goes 6.39 on 10.5 tyres
Frank Mamone's blown Chevy Nova is a wicked looking beast and it's got
plenty of grunt to match. Lately he's been racing the Hemi powered Nova inn
the 10.5 class and with some success too. He won at Sydney Dragway recent
at the APSA Pro Street Shootout.
Project Digger Burnout Testing
Back when the Army's Project Digger was first getting built I was invited
along to film some burnout testing. As you can see the car wasn't finished
but with time getting short before Summernats 23 they wanted to make sure
it was right to go.
Unfortunately, as a direct result of the testing they decided to not do any
burnout at Summernats that year due to cooling issues. But it sure looked
So for those that haven't seen it in action, here you go.
Crazy Camaro Burnout
I filmed this Camaro at
Melbourne's Easternats a few years back. One of the most awesome burnouts
I've ever seen. Turn the volume up for this one.
And don't forget to rate it.
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
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.
Two Superchargers, No Waiting for smoke!!
I used to think this car was called 24TUFF for some reason, and with 2
blowers I guess that works as well, but it's actually T4TUFF and it is
Tough with a capital T. Matt Power is the pilot of the flame throwing smoke
monster, and even though it was a killer burnout Matt finished 13th
overall, that's how tough the competition was.
