HQ383 Lights Up The Pad! Burnout Winner Valvoline Springnats 2010
What can you say about this burnout except wow!
Just to update, Mick sullivan owns this HQ Premier and it's powered by a
383 Holden Stroker with a 6/71 blower. The fire was caused by a new
methanol injection system he was trialling in an attempt to keep the blower
cool. The engine itself runs on petro,l but the methanol is there just to
help cool the intake charge. This video illustrates the dangers of having
your Exhausts exiting too close to the
tyres (steel belts cause sparks) while running on methanol. If you run
meth, it's adviseable to run your pipes all the way to the back bumper.
AGROVB - Supercharged & E85 Fueled 253 Holden V8
Yep, it's just 253 cubes (4.2-litres) under the bonnet of this Holden
Commodore. The 253 is the V8 voted most likely to end up as a boat anchor
to most performance enthusiasts, but Alan Shuttleworth decided to do
something with his. Last year it made 280hp at the tyres naturally
aspirated and this year he's back with a little B&M 162 blower on top and
pumping just 7psi Boost it made
342hp at the tyres. So you could say this little engine is making around
460hp at the crank. Makes wonder if I should pull that 253 from under the
bench and give it a go.
Performance Car Mania 2011
Performance Car Mania is quickly becoming the premiere modified car event
in Victoria, and it's not hard to see why. The organisers set everything up
to maximise the fun for the entrants. And if the entrants are happy then
the spectators are as well, because they get to see some of the coolest
cars around cutting loose. The new quarter mile strip was an interesting
addition and although it was a tad bumpy in places it made for some
We've squeezed as much action as we could into a reasonable time frame, but
keep your eyes open for planty more vids from this event in the near
Best Powerskids at Gazzanats 2011
Just get on it and see how long it'll smoke - that's what powerskids are
all about. No brakes, just a heavy right foot and an arm full of steering
lock, just watch out for those walls.
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.
Holden Versus Ford at Lardner Park
The guys from Motorfest lined up a VR holden and a AU Falcon to see which
would last the longest with their fanbelts cut and half the oil drained. I
tipped that the Ford would outlast the Holden but I never imagined that it
would go for 30mins. Obviously no-one wants to see the full video, but I've
come up with a shorter version showing some of the highlights. The VR
lastes 2mins 47secs, while the AU Falcon went for 30min until they got
bored aand took the stick off the accelerator where it stalled. It's
rumoured that someone actually strated the AU up again later in the night.
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.
Summernats 25 Top Ten Burnouts
Here's the list that everyone has been waiting for, the Summernats 25 Top
Ten Burnouts. If you disagree, don't blame me, this is how the Sumemrnats
judges saw it.
Well done to those that finished in the top ten and better luck next year
to those that didn't. The field is getting tough out there.
1TUFSS Makes An Impressive Amount of Smoke
Normally we don't expect much from late model cars but this VE Commodore
impressed a few with the sheer amount of smoke it was producing. It had
smoke coming out of all orifices at Avalon.
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.
Summernats 25 Liqui-Moly Burnout Masters Preview.
The Liqui-Moly National Burnout Masters is the biggest thing to hit the
Australian burnout scene in the last twelve months. Last year showed just
how awesome this concept can be and for 2012 at Summernats 25 it's going to
be back bigger and better than ever. Prepare yourself for pure awesomeness.
Here's a look at the contenders for Summernats 25 (unfortunately no footage
of 383AXE & MRHQ2U), with some of their killer performances in 2012. Who do
you reckon will win?
Naturally, we'll be there capturing all the action, but make sure you get
along to see it live yourself and then relive the action later on Scotty's
Garage. Cya there!
WONAGO - World's Best Sounding V8
Being a Summernats virgin, Justen Brown made sure he got out there and
checked out the burnout pad before the big qualifying show on Saturday.
This was a practice run on Friday and the crowd loved hearing the 377ci
small block Chev sing. I reckon it's one of the best sounding engines in
the burnout scene right now. Pure music!
