Blown Nova Goes 6.39 on 10.5 tyres

Frank Mamone's blown Chevy Nova is a wicked looking beast and it's got plenty of grunt to match. Lately he's been racing the Hemi powered Nova inn the 10.5 class and with some success too. He won at Sydney Dragway recent at the APSA Pro Street Shootout.

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?





Jet Powered Van Fires Things Up
Crank up the volume for this one. This jet powered van not only puts on a good fire show but it also hauls arse down the track at Heathcote. Unfortunately there was no time recorded but it looks pretty damn fast.





Silver Bullet Becomes Voodu Bullet
Most car people in Australia would know about Gary Myers Silver Bullet. Well he sold it not that long ago to Victorian car enthusiast Perry Meka. Perry has given the Mustang a freshen up and renamed it Voodu Bullet. It's been resprayed with new airbrushing, given Nitrous and a new FBSS airbag system. Looks pretty cool. For those that don't know the engine is a 392 Hemi with two Superchargers.





SIKGMA - Looks Aren't Everything
We were expecting alot from this crazy looking twin supercharged Sigma at PCM but it really didn't deliver. Sure it made smoke eventually but not for long. Hopefully they get it sorted so we can see it ripping some crazy skids soon.





Scotty's Garage 2010 - Close Calls & Conflagrations
It's been a big year for fires and crashes (near misses anyway), and we thought it was time to look back at all the craziness of 2010. With Summernats just around the corner we'll be hitting even more events in 2011.





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!





TOYTON - Unblown to Blown in Five Minutes
Okay, we sped the footage up a little but in all honesty Rob Godfrey went from an unblown big block to an 8/71 combo in less than 20 minutes. For those that don't know the car it is one of Australia's top Street Machines, winning both Street Machine of the year and Summernats Grand Champion. with the only naturally aspirated 632ci combo it made 1050rwhp and run eights on the quarter. The new blown 502ci combo is more cruisable, but makes less power. Looks bloody awesome though. The girls appeared as soon as Rob fired the car up. Very cool.





Twin Turbo LS1-Powered HK Monaro on Dyno
Rodney Ritchie used to run a serious procharger blow-through set-up on his HG Monaro but he's ripped that out and fitted a 406ci LS1 with twin T04Z turbos. It doesn't run alot of Boost but it sure makes enough power. It won the Dyno at Winton's Performance Car Mania with 731rwhp. Rodney now plans to finish things off with an Intercooler and pump up the Boost for even more power, and possibly have a crack at Modified Street Blown in the APSA series.





Riverina Screamer Rolls Royce V12 Tractor
Check out this awesome tractor puller, the Riverina Screamer. It's powered by a Rolls Royce Meteor V12 with twin turbos, EFI and some custom twin cam heads. I've seen the beast in action and it's awesome, I hope to get along to a tractor pull comp some time this year and get some video.





Australia's Quickest BA XR6 Turbo
Phil Chain's XR6 turbo currently holds the record with an 8.4 at 166mph, but the boys had some problems getting it down the track at Jamboree and only (??) managed a couple of 9.1sec runs at over 160mph. It's a beast of a thing with a massive GT47R turbo. How soon until we see a 7sec pass from an XR6 turbo is Australia?





KRANKY Burns Down Kandos - Burnout Fire!!
We've seen plenty of burnouts end with a fire but we've never seen one start with a fire. Rodney Waters HQ sedan goes up in flames right from the start at Kandos. It's crazy insane.





11,000rpm Burnout at UBC2
UPDATE - Talked to Harry about this video the other day. He confirmed that the tacho recall read 11,200rpm and he also told me the engine didn't die, it sheered the rollpin in the distributor and put the timing way out. which is why it turned over but wouldn't fire properly. the engine did another 3 or 4 shows after this and even then it only needed bearing and valve springs. There's no mechanical sympathy here. Listen to this thing scream when Harry Haig gets into it during the second annual Ultimate Burnout Challenge held at Avalon Speedway. The engine sounds more like something you'd hear in a pro-stock car than on the burnout track. It's no surprise that the engine can't handle that kind of sustained rpms but it's still amazing to watch and listen to.





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.





Rod Hadfield's BeauTy
For those who don't know Rod, he's on of the most prolific Australian hod rodder's of our time. He's built and owned more amazing cars than most of us could dream of. Check out his highly modified '26 T-coupe. It's running an Ardun headed flathead V8 and a host of cool gear found around the swap meets.





Turbo V8 Van Crash at Heathcote Raceway
When Powerskids go wrong they go wrong very quickly, as the driver of this eight-second turbo V8 van found out. With the walls of the dragstrip leaving no room for error it didn't take much for this van to get out of shape. Luckily the damage wasn't too bad and the van was able to drive from the track under it's own power.
