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.





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!





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.





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.
