Phil Chain's XR6 turbo currently holds the record with an 8.4 at 166mph, but the boys had some problems getting it down the track at Jamboree and only (??) managed a couple of 9.1sec runs at over 160mph. It's a beast of a thing with a massive GT47R turbo. How soon until we see a 7sec pass from an XR6 turbo is Australia?
Jamboree 2011 - Cool Cars, Hot Women
I decided to stick my head in for a look at Jamboree 2011 while on holidays
in Queensland recently. Cool cars and hot women make this event a mandatory
addition to everyone's event list.
There's a couple little editing glitches in the video, but it took so long
to render and upload, I decided to let them be.
Performance Car Mania 2013
Scotty's Garage 2000th Video!!!
All the crazy action from Performance Car Mania 2013. With three days of
cruising, burnouts, powerskids, Dyno and more, it's a great
event and this year there were almost500 entrants so it was busy as hell.
Two Close Calls at Ford Forum drag day - CLINIC F6 Typhoon
You might remember Adrian Abela's Dyno monster from Summernats 23
(I'll add a link). With the help on Dyno-Mite Performance the F6
Typhoon replica punched out a whopping 869hp at the REAR WHEELS. Adrian has
already run 9.8 with the bright orange blaster, but he found out he needed
a little more traction at Heathcote Raceway recently when both runs nearly
ended in disaster.
Check out the camera fogging just before the first launch - heat coming
from the rear of the car as it builds Boost on the line is simply phenominal.
1TUFSS Makes An Impressive Amount of Smoke
Normally we don't expect much from late model cars but this VE Commodore
impressed a few with the sheer amount of smoke it was producing. It had
smoke coming out of all orifices at Avalon.
Silver Bullet Becomes Voodu Bullet
Most car people in Australia would know about Gary Myers Silver Bullet.
Well he sold it not that long ago to Victorian car enthusiast Perry Meka.
Perry has given the Mustang
a freshen up and renamed it Voodu Bullet. It's been resprayed with new
airbrushing, given Nitrous and a new
FBSS airbag system. Looks pretty cool. For those that don't know the engine
is a 392 Hemi with two Superchargers.
13s for $1300 - Project Bluebird - Episode 12
To fix the lazy shifts we've made a few mods the wiring harness of our
Project Bluebird so we can get the trans shifting a little harder. It takes
less than $20 of parts, a few wires, and a soldering iron to get the job
done. Hopefully it works on the track.
Summernats 23 - CLINIC Dyno 783rwhp
While they didn't have a horsepower Heroes comp at
Summernats this year they did have the Summernats Dyno Test. the highest horsepower on the Dyno this year went to this car,
Adrian Abela's FPV Typhoon (may actually be a rebadged XR6 turbo). Adrian built the car from a repairable
write off and with a 100shot of Nitrous
it managed a best of 869rwhp. Unfortunately this video is from the first
day where they managed 783rwhp. Enjoy anyway.
T4TUFF At Gazzanats 2014
Matt Power didn't win Gazzanats Portland, but he gained enough points to
win the Gazzanats Tri-series with his T4TUFF tonner.
NUMNUTZ - Summernats 24 Burnout Champion
I didn't realise I'd forgotten to post this until Adam reminded me the
Here's the winning burnout from Summernats 24. It was a tough competition
with the extremely wet weather but Adam Slorach emerged victorious with his
blown six cylinder holden ute. He'll go straight in to the Masters
competition this year and it'll be interesting to see how he goes there.
Summernats is only a few months away, make sure you're there to check out
