HQ383 Lights Up The Pad! Burnout Winner Valvoline Springnats 2010
What can you say about this burnout except wow!
Just to update, Mick sullivan owns this HQ Premier and it's powered by a
383 Holden Stroker with a 6/71 blower. The fire was caused by a new
methanol injection system he was trialling in an attempt to keep the blower
cool. The engine itself runs on petro,l but the methanol is there just to
help cool the intake charge. This video illustrates the dangers of having
your Exhausts exiting too close to the
tyres (steel belts cause sparks) while running on methanol. If you run
meth, it's adviseable to run your pipes all the way to the back bumper.
Blown Chevy Powered Corolla cuts lose
Summernats 23 Burnout Champion Mick Brasher was a favourite at Avalon's
Ultimate Burnout Challenge but he threw it all away after attemping two
donuts at the startline. Getting the wheels off into the dirt pretty much
killed any chance of a top ten spot but he stayed itno it until the end and
deliver the kind of performance we've come to expect.
700hp+ Holden six - PROFC
GM Holden made the iconic red motor six back in 1964 and it was the
mainstay for Holden up until 1985 when unleaded fuel killed it off. It was
a tough little motor and Holden made millions of them but I don't think
anyone ever thought the little 202ci six would be ever making over 700hp.
Paul Coles from Pro Street Automotive owns this awesome little FC and he
feeds the tough little 202 with 30psi Boost and enough methanol to drown a
supercharged big block. Fastest time to date is 10.12 at 132mpg but he
recently up the horsepower again and looking
for nine second timeslips. Unfortunately the traction wasn't there on the
weekend at Heathcote but hopefully Paul will hit the nines soon.
BURN MF BURN - Holden Ute Goes Up In Flames
Mark Schwirse's HJ Holden ute was a crowd pleaser at the Ultimate Burnout
Challenge with this huge flame show. After it caught fire the first time
and torched most of the paint, Mark elected to go again and torch it again.
then he came out again and set fire to it another time. Awesoem stuff.
11,000rpm Burnout at UBC2
UPDATE - Talked to Harry about this video the other day. He confirmed that
the tacho recall read 11,200rpm and he also told me the engine didn't die,
it sheered the rollpin in the distributor and put the timing way out. which
is why it turned over but wouldn't fire properly. the engine did another 3
or 4 shows after this and even then it only needed bearing and valve
There's no mechanical sympathy here. Listen to this thing scream when Harry
Haig gets into it during the second annual Ultimate Burnout Challenge held
at Avalon Speedway. The engine sounds more like something you'd hear in a
pro-stock car than on the burnout track. It's no surprise that the engine
can't handle that kind of sustained rpms but it's still amazing to watch
and listen to.
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.
Robbie Bolger Drifting
Here's some incar and outside footage of Robbie Bolger drifting the Capa
Ute. The Ute runs a 1000hp Gen-III V8 with a Vortech YSI Supercharger...it's insane
2JZ Turbocharged HR Holden sedan
We stumbled across this little beauty recently at the Heathcote drags. It's
an old 1966 HR Holden with an injection of modern horsepower. Paul has fitted
a turbocharged Toyota Supra 2JZ engine
into his classic Holden and it sure makes an improvement to its quarter
mile times. While the video only shows paul running 10.9 the car has gone
as fast as 10.6 seconds. Not bad for a six pot streetcar. The turbo is a GT42R and it uses a small shot of Nitrous to help it spool up on the
startline. Neat set-up!
Twin Supercharged Six Cylinder Ute at Summernats 23
Aaron Bond reckoned that one blower wasn't enough for his six clyinder
powered HR Holden Ute so he added a second one just for fun. The bottom
blower is a GMC 4/71 while the top blower is a B&M low blower and they both
hang off the side of a 202ci Holden six. This was Aaron's qualifying effort
from Summernats 23.
HR six pot Burnout
Nice little burnout from this very low HR Holden at Heathcote Raceway.
Gotta love the antic of the passenger hanging from the window as well.
KRUPTA - Supercharged Holden Commodore Ute
Another one from the vault. KRUPTA was a fairly well known car about five
or six years ago. Here's a video of one of it's first runs down the track.
Last time I heard, this car was running nine second quarters with the same
set-up. The basic set-up was a Holden stroker with an intercooled Vortech
Summernats 23 - Blown HR ute - NUMNUTZ
Adam Slorach's supercharged 202 powered HR ute won the six cylinder burnout
class at Summernats 23. The engine runs a Weiand 177 blower and methanol to
produce over 400hp.
Summernats 23 - 4x4 Toyota Landcruiser burnout
One of the most bizarre looking vehicles to hit the burnout pad at
summernats was this modified Landcruiser. while it looks like a long
wheelbase FJ45 (or similar) the coil springs are a dead giveaway that
there's been a fair amount of mods to this 4x4.
