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 flames!





UNLOAD Catches Fire At Summernats 26
It's been one of the most highly anticipated cars of 2012 featuring on several magazine covers, winning show awards and generally blowing minds. Steve Loader UNLOAD Commodore belongs to a new category of cars I like to call PRO BURNOUT - It's a burnout machine with a showcar finish. But Steve being Steve, he couldn't keep it away from the burnout track. He put it on the pad both Friday and Sunday and did spectacular shows both days, but check out the fire after his Sunday skid. Luckily it didn't seem to damage the paint, but it looked pretty bad at the time. Hopefully we'll get to see more of this car on the pad soon.





Summernats 26 - Day Two
Day two at Summernats didn't really kick off until midday with the Shannons City Cruise down Northbourne where a good selection of cars cruised in front of 30,000 people they reckon. Then the cruising fired up along with judging and more scrutineering. Unfortunately the EPA knocked the schedule around so we missed out on the burnouts, if there was any to be had. We didn't hear or see any, but we saw plenty of tough rides. Tomorrow is going to go off with burnouts, cruising, go-to-whoa, show 'n' shine, Dyno, the unveiling, Hilltop Hoods and that Guinness World Record Attempt..





BLOWN Commodore Ute
Mark Schwirse took a standard SV6 Commodore ute and turned it into burnout monster with the help of the boys from Taverna Brothers Engineering. It's got a 540 big block with a 14/71 and methanol injection, and pumps out more power than anyone needs. But who cares about needs, this is all about wants.





Great Balls of Fire! BLOWN Has a Flaming Debut
Mark Schwirse debuted his new BLOWN VE Commodore ute on the weekend to the Springnats crowd and it delivered with this crazy flaming smokeshow.





2000hp Torana Wins Horsepower Heroes
Jake Edwards goes back to back at Summernats 26 with another win in horsepower Heroes with 1666rwhp (and equates to over 2000hp at the flywheel). The car runs a 496ci big block with a massive 106mm Garrett turbo with EFI and methanol. It has run 7.88 at 179mph on the quarter, so it's not just a Dyno queen. Check out how much Exhaust energy it produces at the end of the video where it blew my second camera over even though it was at least 8 feet away.





TOASTR Minivan Rolls At Summernats 26
It was all action at the Liqui Moly Power Pit on Friday with TOASTR falling over during Qualifying for the Liqui Moly Burnout Championship. As you can see the driver was okay, stepping out through the windscreen area within seconds of it going over, and yes the gearbox exploded after the van flipped on it's side raining carnage everywhere.





SS Ute Puts the BURN in BURNOUT
Not sure what happened here, but something definitely let go in the fuel system of this Holden ute because it went up in a big way in the Liqui Moly Power Pit. Gotta love the firey stomping out the fire with an extinguisher in his hand - WTF?





Ben Bray's Burnout Ute
Remember this beast? Ben Bray's Holden VY SS ute. They built this car specifically for burnout from a brand new Holden shell and filled it full supercharged Hemi goodness. Here's some video of it cutting loose at Supernats some years ago.





National Burnout Masters Finals - Summernats 24
The Liqui-Moly National Burnout Masters at Summernats 24 was the most kick arse collection of burnout warriors ever seen in this country. It started with 18 cars which was quickly whittled down to just five contenders; Matt Power, Peter Gray, Steve Sines, Mick Brasher and Gary Myers. This video just shows a small part of each burnout in the top five, I'll post the whole of each individual burnout in the next couple days.





HANFUL Goes All Out
Usually Mark Schwarz times his burnouts so he can drive from the pad without popping the tyres (so he doesn't beat up the rear quarters), but the new burnout track ate up his rear treads in half the time and then the fireys shut him down after they reckon they saw some flames. It was nothing major (just a little oil weeping from a rocker cover), Mark unbolted the blower and drove the car all the way back to Queensland. What a cool steeter.





EVILXA - SUMMERNATS 26 LIQUI-MOLY NATIONAL BURNOUT MASTER 2013
Peter Grmusa reckons that Powerhouse Engines are the reason why he's had such a good year on the burnout pad. The engine has been ultra-reliable and trouble free which frees Peter up to concentrate on driving. And drive it he did. Peter smoked out a quality field of entrants to take the Liqui Moly National Burnout Masters Trophy for 2013 and take home the $15,000 cheque. With the rest of his wins this year he's up around the $40K mark in terms of winnings. Well done Peter.





FEAR Monaro at Summernats 26
We've been waiting to see this for years, but finally FEAR comes to Summernats and the Liqui Moly National Burnout Masters. Fred Watson Monaro sounds amazing and he covered most of the pad, but obviously the Summernats judges saw something we didn't because Fred only scored seventh with this smoke show.





PROPSI Loses A Tailshaft And A Tray
Dave Pendlebury lost an engine last year at Summernats but this year he had a new donk up front and was ready to go nuts. And what happened next was pretty nuts. It's still not really clear what's happened. Either a rim has dug into the track or the tailshaft blew and dug into the track, (both are damaged and there was a deep hole inthe track afterwards). The resulting thump has dislodged the tray from the back end (how did that happen?) and left an expensive repair bill. It's was just one of the memorable moments from Summernast 26.





BLOWN - VE Commodore UTE
Mark Schwirse's BLOWN Commodore ute started live as an SV, but with a little help from Taverna Brothers Engineering he's turned it into a fire breathing monster.
