Tristan and Jason from Trick and Mansweto Racing break their own record of 7.08sec with a blisteringly fast run of 7.03 at 197mph with their 694ci big block Ford. Impressive number for a naturally aspirated car - it's actually the quickest Pro Street legal pass in Australia - and one of the quickest and fastest naturally aspirated passes for any type of car in Australia. Will we see a six-second pass soon?
STREET MACHINE NATIONALS 2011
Held at Sydney Dragway the Street Machine Nationals combined the best bits
of the modified car scene with burnouts, show cars, pro street drag racing
and hot women. With all the best Pro Street cars, shows cars, and cool
streeters it was a pretty awesome weekend. Can't wait until next year.
6BANGA - Burnouts, Drags, Anything
Who would have thought a banged up six-cylinder Centura would be the
ultimate all round performer? Russell Richardson and Michael Ramsey from
Dominator Race engines have built this mad machine up out of spare parts
from an idea thrown around at the pub. The Centura runs mid-11sec quarters
and pulls a mean skid on the burnout pad.
PSIDUP Smashes Modified Street Blown Record - 7.19 @ 201mph
The biggest news from the Street Machine Nationals was Daniel Nunziante's
new Mod Street Blown record with the twin-turbo 417ci Cortina running the very first 200mph
pass in the Modified Street Blown category. Basically these cars have
standard suspension ocation and are only aloowed a maximum tyre width of
VLGOD is a Seven Second Screamer
VL turbo Commodores are a uniquely
Aussie creation and wickedly fast with the right mods. With a 3-litre
straight six (RB30) and a factory single turbo they do okay but these days with RD30 block
and massive roller bearing race turbos
they are pretty awesome. Check out the flames from the pipes on the
Huge Nitrous Backfire - MAULER Toasts It's Windscreen
Imagine being the driver of this Nitrous-injected, V8-powered Mazda. Seeing a huge
wall of flame up your windscreen is never a good thing, but it certainly
looks spectacular on video. We've got lots more action to come from the
Street Machien Nationals.
Crazy Torana Hatchback Crash at Sydney Dragway
This Torana hatch has a bit of power - maybe too much for those skinny
10.5in tyres. Up front it's got a blown 'n' injected big block chev and the
driver stays into the gas for little too long in the burnout. After a bit
of pitside panel beating it was back out on the track for a shakedown pass.
Massive Nitrous Backfire Blows Scoop Skyhigh Nitrous is great when it all goes to
plan but when it goes wrong it tends to go very wrong. Watch how high this
bonnet scoop blown at Sydney Dragway during the recent Street Machine
Nationals. One photographer standing way down the track reckons it went
higher than the tower behind the startline.
SUXGAS Doesn't Run Gas
Peter Papaioannou used to run Nitrous
years ago but now he's kept the plates and ditched the blue bottles in
favour of a 565ci big block, which he reckons is just a baby compared to
most in the Pro Street Unblown field.
