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.
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?
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.
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.
