Peter Grmusa reckons that Powerhouse Engines are the reason why he's had such a good year on the burnout pad. The engine has been ultra-reliable and trouble free which frees Peter up to concentrate on driving. And drive it he did. Peter smoked out a quality field of entrants to take the Liqui Moly National Burnout Masters Trophy for 2013 and take home the $15,000 cheque. With the rest of his wins this year he's up around the $40K mark in terms of winnings. Well done Peter.

EVILXA - Burnout Masters Final Summernats 25
As soon as we saw Peter Grmusa fire straight down the entry to the pad at high speed we knew this was either going to be a winning whip into the pad or a crash - it was nearly both. But getting stuck in the corner destroyed any chances of a win and so he really cut loose after that and ended up damaging one of the rear quarters. Peter finished 10th in the finals.

EVILXA Last Burnout
Peter Grmusa has had a great run with EVILXA and he almost won at Lardner Park Motorfest with this skids until he couldn't drive from the pad. A piece of rubber had wrapt itself around the diff. Peter also cracked a head on this burnout and it ended up being the last outing for this car before he sold it to a guy in Western Australia.

EVILXA - Revamped and Smokin' Hot
EVILXA was looking a bit sad after hitting a barrier at Summernats and a few burnout fires (we show fire footage from Gazzanats), so Peter Grmusa has given the XA Ute a birthday and covered it in a mix of PPG Vibrance (Key Lime green & white by Auto Passion) and vinyl wrap (by Bling Designs). He invited us out to watch his debut burnout at a small gathering at an undisclosed location. As you can see he's got plenty of grunt thanks to the Powerhouse-built 530ci big block, but still manages to control it beautifully in the tight confines of the space provided.

EVILXA - Breaks An Ignition Lead
If you're wondering why EVILXA sounds off-song in this video it's because one of the leads broke just before the burnout. Peter pushed on through and still pumped out plenty of smoke, but we were wincing the whole time waiting for it to lunch itseld.
