Corowa Autofest 2010 - 1000hp Torana splits balancer on the dyno

This Torana is a pretty mean bit of gear, with a Vortech YSi hanging off the side of a 434cube small block chev. It was looking promising to spin up some huge numbers on the Dyno when the balancer split. Although there was some concern the crank might have snapped the snout off, it was later confirmed that it was just the balancer that broke.

2000hp Torana Wins Horsepower Heroes
Jake Edwards goes back to back at Summernats 26 with another win in horsepower Heroes with 1666rwhp (and equates to over 2000hp at the flywheel). The car runs a 496ci big block with a massive 106mm Garrett turbo with EFI and methanol. It has run 7.88 at 179mph on the quarter, so it's not just a Dyno queen. Check out how much Exhaust energy it produces at the end of the video where it blew my second camera over even though it was at least 8 feet away.





Summernats 23 - Day 2 -Thursday
Summernats was strangely quiet today for a Thursday, but there's a whole bunch of killer cars around and more blowers than you can imagine. here's just a small portion of some of the cars going through scrutineering and some cruising. sorry, I didn't get to the judging hall today. Better update tomorrow.





Summernats23 - CMEFRY goes up in flames
Can you imagine a more Apt numberplate for this car? CMEFRY (See Me Fry) goes up in flames at the end of a massive smokefest. Grab the next issue of Street Machine magazine to see some amazing pictures by Adam Morrissey from Street Machine.





Two Superchargers, No Waiting for smoke!!
I used to think this car was called 24TUFF for some reason, and with 2 blowers I guess that works as well, but it's actually T4TUFF and it is Tough with a capital T. Matt Power is the pilot of the flame throwing smoke monster, and even though it was a killer burnout Matt finished 13th overall, that's how tough the competition was.





Car's differential explodes on the startline
This supercharged Torana blows its diff in spectacular fashion during Supernats at WSID in Sydney Australia.





1000hp+ Twin Turbo Torana
We've talked to Perry Bullivant in the past with his Torana sedan. First it had a Vortech Supercharger that made plenty of power but was somewhat fragile, then he progressed to a 434ci twin turbo set-up, now he's gone to 408 cube but still with twin turbos and with it strapped down hard it ran back-to-back 1000hp runs at Performance Car Mania. With the old combo the car has run 8.1 on the quarter, should be interesting to see what it runs now.





World's Biggest Burnout Fire!
Justen Brown absolutely torches his Holden ute at Mallanats with one of the biggest fire shows we've seen. And then he came out in the finals and do it all again.





MRCUBE - 8sec Injected torana
I don't know the details on this Torana but it's an awesome bit of gear with some wheels up 8sec action and no blowers or turbos to be seen.





Corowa Autofest - Six Cylinder drag final
High tech versus old school in the final of the six cylinder class at Corowa. We talk briefly to both owners before they head to the startline. With the EL XR6 Falcon boasting almost double the horsepower of the Torana, it should have been no contest but the result was closer than anyone could imagine.





Summernats 23 - EASTY
How's this for a tyre shredding burnout? Glenn Eastwood leans on his Torana so hard that the tyres want to leave along with the coolant.





HER350 at Willowbank - before SMOTY
Angela Dow at Willowbank, before she painted the car purple and won Street Machine Of The Year I post this before but it was the wrong aspect ratio.





Corowa Autofest - Outlaw class final
I'm not sure what the rules were for the outlaw class but it was Mick Brody again with his 555cube Torana versus Chris with his Supercharged HQ. Unfortunately Chris was fairly outgunned with the big block Torana taking a relatively easy win.





Corowa Autofest 2010 - SKIDIT Torana on the dyno
Justin Robinson's Torana smoked the tyres all weekend at Corowa, but he also threw it on the Dyno to see what it was making at the tyres. As you can see, it's got plenty of grunt.





CAL400 Racing - the other Torana
I'm pretty sure this was a second car and not the original CAL400, (Daniel does watch these vid occassionally so he'll probably give us the good oil on that). Original or not this thing is a beast and lays some awesome burnouts before it rips off a low seven while getting wildly out of shape across the line.





Corowa Autofest 2010 - BLOHSV supercharged Falcon
Johnny Taverna Jnr been smoking it up all over Australia in recent years. We stuck a camera inside his car at Autofest, keep your eye out for that footage soon.
