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.

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.





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.

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.





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.





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.





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.





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.

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.





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.





MUT308 Erupts in Flames at Gazzanats
The new injection combination seems to be working well on Adam Mutimer's VL Commodore, it looks to be running better than ever. But it still has a couple of surprises up it's sleeve as it showed at Gazzanats with this sudden fireball during burnout qualifying. Keen eyed viewers might notice that Adam wasn't behind the wheel.

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.





Gazzanats Powerskids 2011
Okay, so they're not all Mopars but we lead the charge with this tough sounds turbocharged V8 Chrysler at Gazzanats in Adelaide. Powerskids for All





MELTEM Goes Bang!
This blown V8 powered Toyota Corolla was going great until the bits inside the engine decided they wanted to be outside.





HQ383 Flames up AGAIN at Springnats 2011
Burnouts are fun, but setting fire to your car? Not so much. Mick Sullivan has one of the sweetest sounding Holden V8's around but to keep the blower cool he runs a water/methanol injection system which sometimes gets things a little hot down the back end. Hopefully he'll get it all sorted before he totally torches the car.
