NZV8 TV S3 Episode 5 - Powercruise, Holden HQ Kingswood, GP Hydroplaning - Part 1
On this week's show, we get down to the huge Powercruise event held
recently at the Taupo Motorsport Park. We have full coverage of the
Powerskids and all the Off Street Racing. It was an awesome event and it's
no suprise that's where we found this week's feature car -- a supercharged
Holden HQ Kingswood that had no issue turning rubber into smoke. After all
the excitement of Powercruise we needed to relax by the water so we caught
up with Australasian GP Hydroplaning champion Graeme Weller as he attempts
to set the World GP Hydroplane Speed Record.

1,000+ WHP Nissan GT-R by TopSpeed Motorsports

*NOTE: Front drive shaft was removed on Dyno for differential safety
reasons. The center diff takes a huge beating on a Dyno at this power level if the
front shaft is in the car. This car went 155mph in the 1/4 two days after
the Dyno which proves
more than any Dyno how
much power it is making. Most major shops have started removing the front
drive shaft during Dyno do to lots of prematurely
worn out center clutches.
