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.
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.
HG5LTR gives it Some Revs at UBC2
I'm pretty sure this is Shane Taylor (correct me if I'm wrong) in his HG
Brougham HG5LTR. If the number plates are right, he's running a Holden v8
and he certainly does not spare the horses during this awesome display.
This burnout was good enough for 9th place at the Ultimate burnout
Challenge and Shane is certainly getting noticed by the right people. Look
out for more from this guy in the future.
