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.
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
Jamboree 2011 - Cool Cars, Hot Women
I decided to stick my head in for a look at Jamboree 2011 while on holidays
in Queensland recently. Cool cars and hot women make this event a mandatory
addition to everyone's event list.
There's a couple little editing glitches in the video, but it took so long
to render and upload, I decided to let them be.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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?
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?
WTOFIT - Crazy Rotary Powered Van Burnout
We popped in to the Good Fryday Burnout at Sydney Dragway to check out the
action and found this totally insane little rotary powered Suzuki van
ripping a few skids. Check out that glowing Exhaust. We've seen a few hot systems in our
time but never one that glowed so brightly.
GM671 - Summernats Burnout Third Place
I've had nothing but trouble posting this video so I hope you all enjoy it.
After dropping a valve in his Mustang Gary Myers put all his
efforts into the Summernats Burnout Comp with the XA Coupe. He almost got
there too ad showed that yuou don't need a blower to get on the podium.
R33 Skyline Punches A Rod Out at Gazzanats
There's no doubt that Skylines are decent performance cars but every car
has it's limits - as the owner of this R33 found out at Gazzanats. I've
never seen a nearly complete conrod leave an engine before, usually they're
broken in two.
BLOWNQ - Blown 'n' Injected Monaro
Andrew Damien's Monaro was a tidy unit before. It was white with a blown,
carbied small block. But he's gone all out with the latest rebuild, which
has seen the aussie classic copping a cage, tubs, and a 410 cube meth
injected Chevy. He doesn't mind whipping it around the pad either.
Two Superchargers, No Waiting for smoke!!
I used to think this car was called 24TUFF for some reason, and with 2
blowers I guess that works as well, but it's actually T4TUFF and it is
Tough with a capital T. Matt Power is the pilot of the flame throwing smoke
monster, and even though it was a killer burnout Matt finished 13th
overall, that's how tough the competition was.
