PVL383 Runs Sevens on 275 Radials
After running a stout blown combo for a couple years Brett Benz decided to
switch to turbos and a blow through
carby in his golden VL Calais. A good swap it seems because Benz dropped
jaws when he went shot straight into then seven second zone and forced a
rule change for the new class.
PRO05L - Seven-Second Naturally Aspirated LC Torana
When I saw this 555ci LC torana of Peter Pronesti I thought, "Wow, That's
quick!" I also thought it was using Nitrous or something. Then I noticed it was in Mod
Street Unblown which makes it crazy fast (minitubbed only, no forced
induction) for that class.
Unfortunately the APSA guys threw the Mod Street and Pro Street Unblown
guys together for the Sydney shootout which meant Peter was up against cars
with twice as much tyre, so he didn't make the final, but he still
EVIL72 F100 Burnout
If the front of Brendon's F-truck isn't looking so straight it's because he
managed to put it into a guardrail the week before this burnout. But he
didn't let that stop him, he hit the pad at UBC3 with his usual
BLOWN Holden Ute DOESN'T Catch Fire at Gazzanats
I fully expected Mark to set fire to his ute again like he did at UBC3 but
he managed to leave the pad unscorched this time even though he did beach
it on the curbing at the end. Words can not describe what a beast this ute
is - I'll leave it to the video to do the talking.
Blown Dodge Pick-Up Roars
There's plenty cool about squeezing a blown small block in the front of an
old rusty dodge pick-up. By the way, this was one of the first times out
for this new engine combo, which is why Denis seems a little tentative with
T4TUFF Wins Brashernats
Matty Power is having a great run this year with a string of wins and
podium finishes. Blasting the Sydney Dragway pad with smoke and flame the
T4TUFF tonner was unstoppable at Brashernats. But can he win the big one in
Canberra next year?
FRYZEM Gets Fried at Gazzanats 2011
James North might need to rename his car FRYZME (Fries me) after this huge
fire at Gazzanats. The heat from the flames was ferocious, even with the
car so far away, but the awesome fire fighters standing trackside were on
the case quickly.
GM671 - Summernats Burnout Third Place
I've had nothing but trouble posting this video so I hope you all enjoy it.
After dropping a valve in his Mustang Gary Myers put all his
efforts into the Summernats Burnout Comp with the XA Coupe. He almost got
there too ad showed that yuou don't need a blower to get on the podium.
BLNUTE Smokes Out Summernats 25
Gareth Kerr is always good for a show and he certainly did that at
We had to skip the video foward a full 30 seconds because that's how long
the pad was completely smoked out - all you could hear was that blown big
block roaring. Fantastic!
FAYFUL V8 Datsun
If I had to guess what engine this Datsun had under the hood I'd guess an
LS1 V8 with it's limiter bashing action. Does a decent skid too.
SOLID Effort at Gazzanats
When you see how well Danny Smith's C10 Pickup performs on the burnout pad
it makes us wonder why more people aren't using shortbed pick-ups for
burnout duties. They've got plenty of room for big engines and lots of
space to work around them. And they just look plain cool.
