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.
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.
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.
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.
Summernats 23 - Top Ten Burnouts
Actually it's the top eleven seeing that four entrants finished on the same
points. These were the official placings and we count them down from 11 to
Ultimate Burnout Challenge 2 - NUMNUTZ gives us a flame show
We already uploaded one supercharged six powered ute today so we figured we
might as well upload another. Check out Adam Slorach's effort from the
second Ultimate Burnout Challenge at Avalon Speedway. As good as this
burnout was it still only scored 14th overall - that's how good the rest of
the competition was!
UBC2 Winning Burnout - Don Elphick ONBOC
This is how you win $10,000!
Don Elphick took home the big cheque at UBC2 after this awesome tyre frying
smoke show. With wins at several big comps under his belt Don is becoming a
force to be reckoned with in aussie burnout circles.
Who knows? Is Don going to be the next Summernats burnout champ? He's got
the form and with a new engine on the way, he's got to be one of the
favorites. Do any betting agencies take bets on Summernats?
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!
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
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.
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.
Clint Oglivie Demo at UBC2
As one of the promoters of the Ultimate Burnout Challenge Clint wasn't in
the running for any of the prizes but that didn't stop him from coming out
and tearing up a few set of tyres just for fun. The engine is a
supercharged Holden V8 and the car is an LC Torana.
