Australia's Quickest BA XR6 Turbo

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.





Twin Turbo VY SS Sleeper
Okay so a VY SS is a decent car from the factory but with a pair of turbos and built LS1 stroker they can certainly scream along like this example here. Looks great under the bonnet and it's a manual as well. It ran 137mph on pure street rubber





GETOFF Gets Them Out!
Maybe they should change the plates to GETMOUT





Ford FPV F6 runs 11.0 after driving 1600km
Then he drove home. Yep, Paul from Elite Automotive in Brisbane decided to attend the recent Ford Forum Drag Nationals at Heathcote Park with his Ford FPV F6 (dohc 4-litre six with factory turbo - 415hp factory). Brisbane is in Queensland and Heathcote is in Victoria and there's alot of Australia in-between. According to whereis.com, the trip from Brisbane to Heathcote is 1618.4km (1000miles) one way! As you can see Paul had no problem reeling off a bunch of 11-sec ETs (including at least three 11.0s) before drving back to Queensland. Not bad for a car with a stock bottom end. All Paul has done is fit bigger injectors/Intercooler/Exhaust and some better valve springs plus given it a tune. The trip covered over 3500km all up. Now that's a real street car!
