After debuting (and setting fire to) his new ride at Springnats 2012, Mark Schwirse has scored the win of his burnout career with the top prize at Summernats 26 in the Liqui Moly Summernats Burnout Championship. Naturally he scores a slot in next years Burnout Masters and the respect of all burnout loving aussies. Well done dude.
Summernats 25 Top Ten Burnouts
Here's the list that everyone has been waiting for, the Summernats 25 Top
Ten Burnouts. If you disagree, don't blame me, this is how the Sumemrnats
judges saw it.
Well done to those that finished in the top ten and better luck next year
to those that didn't. The field is getting tough out there.
EVILXA - Revamped and Smokin' Hot
EVILXA was looking a bit sad after hitting a barrier at Summernats and a
few burnout fires (we show fire footage from Gazzanats), so Peter Grmusa
has given the XA Ute a birthday and covered it in a mix of PPG Vibrance
(Key Lime green & white by Auto Passion) and vinyl wrap (by Bling Designs).
He invited us out to watch his debut burnout at a small gathering at an
undisclosed location. As you can see he's got plenty of grunt thanks to the
Powerhouse-built 530ci big block, but still manages to control it
beautifully in the tight confines of the space provided.
YLDTOY Spits Flames at Summernats 26
Plenty of action in the Liqui Moly Burnout Championship at summernats 26.
Tony D with YLDTOY was throwing fuel out the cap when it whipped around on
the pad, and it didn't take long to light them up. It enough to DQ him.
I have no idea what's going on with the front end, it's almost like they
decided to run without front shocks.
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
Summernats 26 - Day One Preview
Yep it's that time of year again. Street Machine Summernats is held in
Canberra and it is Australia's biggest horsepower party. This year
is set to be bigger than ever with over 1700 cars. We take a look at the
new burnout pad and catch up with some of the rides coming through
World's Biggest Burnout Fire!
Justen Brown absolutely torches his Holden ute at Mallanats with one of the
biggest fire shows we've seen.
And then he came out in the finals and do it all again.
Summernats 25 Liqui-Moly Burnout Masters Preview.
The Liqui-Moly National Burnout Masters is the biggest thing to hit the
Australian burnout scene in the last twelve months. Last year showed just
how awesome this concept can be and for 2012 at Summernats 25 it's going to
be back bigger and better than ever. Prepare yourself for pure awesomeness.
Here's a look at the contenders for Summernats 25 (unfortunately no footage
of 383AXE & MRHQ2U), with some of their killer performances in 2012. Who do
you reckon will win?
Naturally, we'll be there capturing all the action, but make sure you get
along to see it live yourself and then relive the action later on Scotty's
Garage. Cya there!
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.
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 Burnout Masters Preview
Who's in and who's out for Summernats 26? It's a kick arse field that will
be converging on Canberra in January. Let us know in the comments who you
think will win.
Summernats 26 - Day Three
Friday at Summernats 26 started with a bang. First up there was the
Guinness World Record for Largest Simultaneous Burnout with 69 cars on the
pad at the same time, then it was into burnout qualifying with a massive
amount of action there. All the while there was constant cruising, show car
judging and Dyno
(which we'll try and get to today) and then it was time for the unveiling
in the Meguairs Pavilion and the Hilltop Hoods on the main stage - and I've
got to say it was the first time I'd heard them, but they were AWESOME!
Can't wait until Saturday.
Too Much Horsepower For The Dyno
At the recent Totally Exhausted Dyno Day they tried to Dyno test Billey Seton's
SILLY HQ sedan. But massive traction issues meant they weren't getting the
numbers the car should have been getting. the engine has been Dynoed at 1300hp but the best
they could get was just over 450rwhp before it erupted in wheelspin again.
Then after it was all over they took it out the back for some donut action
and snapped some wheel studs off.
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.
