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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
Jake Edwards Torana - Summernats 21
On the Dyno at
Summernats 21. Jakes Edwards is probably Australia's foremost authority on
blow through carby set-ups. Here's his own personal car running over 1000hp
at the tyres with a single carb and no Intercooler although it does run on
mehtanol. The engine is a 393cube Holden V8 and it runs a single Holset turbo.
Rare Footage - Deby Myers Burnout
That's right, it's the wife of the Australian Burnout Legend showing that
she can light them up too. Watch how Deby uses the shift light to
illuminate the interior of their supercharged Mustang, and how Gary keeps pointing
out where the tacho is pointing. It's interesting to note that Gary
typically sets the shift light at around 7500-8000rpm.
