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.
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.
Near Miss for 2000hp Toyota Aurion
Tony Wedlock proves once again why he's one of the best drag racing sedan
drivers in the country. His 2000hp 2JZ powered Toyota Aurion normally runs
6sec quarter mile times but he had some trouble getting the power to the
ground at Jamboree 2011.
He almost made it look too easy saving his Toyota from collecting both
walls after getting up on two wheels during eliminations. It was a hell of
a driving job!
TOGB8 - Ford BF XR6 Turbo Burnout
Ford's Xr6 turbo is an impressive ride.
They go well in stock form and even better with a few tweaks. We don't see
them on the burnout pad very often though - here's one guy punishing his at
Changed the title to make the whingers happy :)
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
CHIWAWA - 7sec Toyota Corolla
You might remember this Corolla from a couple months ago when it was white.
Unfortunately it rolled in a fairly huge accident at Sydney Dragway. Now
it's back in black and just as fast as ever.
Not sure on the exact details but I've heard it runs a 4G63 Billet block
stretched to 2.4-litres and it's driven by Dominic Rigoli from Tony Rigoli
Performance. Got to love the consistency of this little beast too.
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
