HQ383 - The Sweetest Sounding Holden V8 In Australia

I've heard alot of engines over the years from a variety of makes but this 383 Holden Stroker is one of the sweetest sounding V8's around.

All the best action from Scotty's Garage in 2011. Hope you enjoyed all the footage we've been bringing this year. Hoping to bring you a whole lot more in the New Year.





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.





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.





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 interesting racing. 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 future.





Project Digger Burnout Testing
Back when the Army's Project Digger was first getting built I was invited along to film some burnout testing. As you can see the car wasn't finished but with time getting short before Summernats 23 they wanted to make sure it was right to go. Unfortunately, as a direct result of the testing they decided to not do any burnout at Summernats that year due to cooling issues. But it sure looked good. So for those that haven't seen it in action, here you go.





Scotty's Garage - Best Fires, Crashes & Blowups 2013
All the action from 2013 as seen by Scotty's Garage. Merry Christmas and have a great 2014





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.





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.





Best burnout ever! Bandag Bullet
16 cylinders, 4 turbos, two Superchargers. The Bandag Bullet is a tyre frying machine. It can run the standing quarter in 12 seconds, and shoots flames from the ultra short Exhausts on demand.





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!





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.





BAT05L - Big, Black & Blown
A bit of modern muscle here with a 304ci Holden V8 sporting a thumping great 6/71 blower on a home made intake that the owner built himself. The bottom end is mostly stock with just valve springs to counter the Boost.





Drift Camaro - How To Enjoy a Blown Big Block Chev!
Half burnout - half drift session, this awesome display shows how much fun a blown big block Camaro can be. Peter Gray is the pilot and he's not shy in throwing the black beast around the old Springnats skid pan.





ANARCY Supercharged Holden V8 Torana
This might be the quickest Holden V8 in Pro Street I think. Harry Joss runs a supercharged 355ci Holden stroker in this badass LX Torana hatch and with ET's in the low 8's we reckon it might be one of the quickest around.
