BLK40T - Real 8-second Streetcar

When it comes to Pro-Street racing there's plenty of cars that just wear the numberplates and never see the street, but Joe Geri's twin turbo Capri isn't one of them. With a 4-litre Lexus quad-cam V8 under the bonnet it is 100% NSW street legal and as you can see on the video it can run an 8.38 at 160mph on 275 width drag radials. In fact Joe even drove the car to the track, something he does every meeting, and since the 4-litre combo went in the car has done over 35,000kms on the street and over 350 passes on the track along with 100 runs on the Dyno. How's that for reliability? What a car!

SSOO57 - VX SS Commodore Ride The Limiter
I swear, if Gen-III powered Commodores didn't have limiters they would just rev until they died. More hard hitting limiter action from a VT Commodore.





MINCER - Crazy Supercharged Ford Capri
Okay, it's not the average grocery getter but Tristan Ocker's MINCER Capri is one awesome bit of gear. You might want to turn your sound up or down - depending on how much you like your hearing and how much you loove blown V8s.





WAR440 - Supercharged 500ci Mopar Hardtop
Mark Arblaster had his WAR440 hardtop out at Sydney Dragway on the weekend to prepare for an attack on Drag Week. He managed a string of 8.6-second runs which is pretty stout for a 4000lb+ leaf spring car but a lifter failure at the end of the day damaged the cam and possibly any chance of the car making it to Drag Week. Bummer!





UCSMOKE - Got Smoke?
Steve Loader and his Holden HT Premier UCSMOKE are a tyre destroying combo. Just watch how much smoke is fired into the crowd at Summernats before he's engulfed in it when the car reaches the pad. Then it's just a matter of listening as that 14/71 supercharged 532ci big block screams at 7500rpm plus.





FRYZEM - Love The Blower
James North loves his blower... and that's all we've got to say about that. :)





MV454 - Procharged Big Block Torana is Hell Fast
After years of running quick with a Nitrous'd big block Mick Voase has stepped up with this big cube Procharged combo. Pretty damn quick too with the Torana hatchback screaming down the quarter in the mid-7 zone.





APSA Round 3 Modified Street Blown/Outlaw Radial final
Not sure why they combined Modified Street Blown with Outlaw Radial for Round 3 of the Australia Pro Street series but that's what they did. Joe Gauci's twin turbo Cortina has run low-7s at 200mph while Steve Bezzina's XW sedan has run 8.0 with it's single turbo combo. Both cars run donks from Dandy Engines, but barring a complete brain fade from Gauci it was always going to go the Cortina's way. Still, both cars are impressive as hell.





NUCKINFUTS Revs the Futs Out of it at UBC3
I believe this car may be sold now and the ownder Steve Nogas has built a new machine which we'll see debut at Gazzanats later in the year.





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?





Hot Rod Smokeshow
We don't see too many hot rods doing burnouts unfortunately and when we do it's always a treat. this blown small block Chevy powered Ford put on a reasonable show at Summernats before it started to get a bit hot and exited stage right.





WAR440 - Summernats 11
So old, old footage I dug out of the archive from way back at Summernats 11. This was the first time anyone had been over 500hp in horsepower Heroes. Mark Arblaster, the owner of WAR440, wasn't allowed to run in competition because the car was on methanol. He was there purely for demonstration purposes, and what a demonstration it was.





APSA Round-3 10.5 Outlaw Final
In the 10.5 Outlaw final st Sydney dragway it was Jeremy Callaghan in the green twin turbo Torana up against Frank Mamone in the blown Hemi powered Nova. With a 6.3sec pass in an earlier round Mamone had the advantage.





WILDXB - Mad Max Eat Your Heart Out
Mad Max was a cool movie but it's not Mel's acting ability that we love, it's the blown Falcon Coupe that he uses to mow down the bad guys. Supercharged Falcon Coupes will always have a special place in our hearts.





MINCER Runs 7.54 at Sydney Dragway
It's been a while since i've seen Tristan Ocker's MINCER Capri running down the quarter but it certainly hasn't lost any of it's ferocity. I only saw one pass from the green Capri at Sydney Dragway but it was a doozy running a 7.54 at 193mph with the wheels liftings all the way through the run.





APSA Round 3 - X275 Final
On of the newest classes to the Australian Pro Street scene is the X275 Radial class where cars are challenged to get the power down through a relatively small tyre. There was plenty of low 8-second action and even a 7.9 that stunned everyone. In the final it was Brett Benz in the twin turbo Commodore up against Scott Cortina in the big block Chevy powered HG Premier.
