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!
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.
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!
Twin Turbo V8 Lexus-powered Capri
Joe Geri's Capri recently featured in Street Machine Magazine and it has
run as fast as 8.34 at 164mph. But instead of running a V8 Ford engine Joe
has gone for a 4-litre Lexus V8, which is legally the biggest engine he can
fit to the car and turbo it while
remaining totally street legal. He drives this car to the track, bolts on
some slicks, runs eights and drives it home. It's a true street and strip
warrior. Nice one Joe!
APSA Round 3 - Pro Street Blown final
With most of the big guns running Outlaw 10.5 or Outlaw Radial the Pro
Street Blown final was a bit slower that usual. It was a close race though
with the holeshot being the deciding factor.
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.
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?
