Initially I was filming the Pac Performance MX6 in the video because it was running some numbers that day, but I had to switch cars when this Ford Probe Doorslammer lost control and hammered the wall at around half track. Thankfully the driver stepped out without a scratch.
Wild 9sec Falcon has trouble going around corners
Now don't get me wrong, I love this car. I've been in this car doing insane
speeds down the main straight at Eastern Creek, but it's not the best car
to be fanging around corners.
But it is wickedly quick in a straight line with genuine 9sec time slips.
Not bad for a street driven car.
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.
Victor Bray Doorslammer Burnout at WSID
With Castrol and Victor Bray parting ways, bringing one of Australia's
longest standing motorsports sponships to a close, it's only fitting that
we run a burnout of the man himself in action, doing what he does best -
Willys crash at WSID
This supercharged Willy's coupel is capable of 11sec quarters but during
this run something goes wrong and the rear end locks up driving the car
towards the other side of the track where it narrowly misses the other car.
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
Australia's Quickest Nitrous Car - Wilson/Kryger Camaro
Edit: It's been pointed out there might be a couple of quicker Nitrous cars in Australia but regardless this car
is pretty impressive so I'll let the title stand.
I'm pretty sure this is Australia's quickest Nitrous car, although if I'm wrong someone will
let me know.
With a monster motor and massive gas kit the car runs some seriously quick
times considering it's only on 10.5 rubber. It's still early days for the
black Camaro, owned by
Johnny Wilson and Simon Kryger, who knows how fast they'll get it going?
Summernats 23 - 4x4 Toyota Landcruiser burnout
One of the most bizarre looking vehicles to hit the burnout pad at
summernats was this modified Landcruiser. while it looks like a long
wheelbase FJ45 (or similar) the coil springs are a dead giveaway that
there's been a fair amount of mods to this 4x4.
