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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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
Corowa Autofest 2010
Here's an idea of what Corowa Autofest was like with Benny giving us a
quick run down.
Final figures were 169 entrants and a whopping 13,000 spectators, despite
the rain on Saturday.
There will be a two day drag event and show 'n' shine held over the ANZAC
day weekend, but racing doesn't start until late on Sunday so you can still
go pay your respects.
Revfest - FORZA Blown Alcohol Chev V8 singing
Another awesome burnout from Forza's Sal Mancuso. The blown HR holden rips
it up until Sal gets lost and stalls it, but they fire the beast up again
and Sal tears it up again. Great stuff!
UCSMOKE - Supercharged Holden Burnout car at UBC2
Here's a YouTube favourite. Steve Loader's UCSMOKE delivering anothe roff
the wall performance at UBC2. With Steve being one of the promotoers he
wasn't in the running for any of the prizes but he was still happy to kill
some tyres in the name of entertainment.
