It's been one of the most high anticipated burnout cars in recent year. Steve Nogas and his KILLA-B Camaro hit the pad at Springnats 2012. With 632 cubes up front under an insanely huge 16/71 blower, it's got way more power than it needs.
This is footage of his Sunday burnout. If you're wondering about the damage to the front quarter, he gave the wall a solid tap on Saturday.
Drift Police - They're Coming To Get You
One of the drift demonstartions at Springnats included these imports
chasing each other around the pad. Not sure who was chasing who at times
but the Drfit Police car is pretty cool.
BLWNLUX - World's Toughest Hilux
Forget the Top Gear Hilux. This has to be the toughest Toyota Hilux in the
world. Brett Battersby has jacked up this '87 Hilux and filled the engine
bay with 540 cubes of blown and injected big block Chev. Check out those
KRANKY Burns Down Kandos - Burnout Fire!!
We've seen plenty of burnouts end with a fire but we've never seen one
start with a fire. Rodney Waters HQ sedan goes up in flames right from the
start at Kandos. It's crazy insane.
Crazy V8 LAWN MOWER Hits the Dyno
Now here's something you don't see every day - a V8 Lawn Mower. The blower
might be a fake but the 200rwhp is definitely real and it turns the tyres
Seriously I need one of these things at home.
Blown Nova Goes 6.39 on 10.5 tyres
Frank Mamone's blown Chevy Nova is a wicked looking beast and it's got
plenty of grunt to match. Lately he's been racing the Hemi powered Nova inn
the 10.5 class and with some success too. He won at Sydney Dragway recent
at the APSA Pro Street Shootout.
Summernats 26 - Day One Preview
Yep it's that time of year again. Street Machine Summernats is held in
Canberra and it is Australia's biggest horsepower party. This year
is set to be bigger than ever with over 1700 cars. We take a look at the
new burnout pad and catch up with some of the rides coming through
LYNCHY Scares The Pee Out of a Promo Girl
Not saying the Valvoline promo girl actually peed herself but Lynchy gave
her the fright of her life when he went nuts on the Springnats pad, and he
even connected with a barrier which has the little V8 Corolla looking
slightly second hand.
EVILXA Fires Up For Second Place at Springnats
With a new paint and vinyl scheme you'd think the last thing Pete Grmusa
wants is a fire but amazingly the body and paint faired remarkably well
after this little flameshow at Springnats 2012.
BLOWN is Summernats 26 Burnout Champion
After debuting (and setting fire to) his new ride at Springnats 2012, Mark
Schwirse has scored the win of his burnout career with the top prize at
Summernats 26 in the Liqui Moly Summernats Burnout Championship. Naturally
he scores a slot in next years Burnout Masters and the respect of all
burnout loving aussies. Well done dude.
Summernats 23 - Burnout Fail!
We see plenty of good burnout at Summernats every year, what about the ones
that aren't so good?
More often than not the crowd or judges will ask them to move on, or some
of them get the hint themselves. No doubt they'll all be back next year
bigger and better.
UNLOAD Catches Fire At Summernats 26
It's been one of the most highly anticipated cars of 2012 featuring on
several magazine covers, winning show awards and generally blowing minds.
Steve Loader UNLOAD Commodore belongs to a new category of cars I like to
call PRO BURNOUT - It's a burnout machine with a showcar finish.
But Steve being Steve, he couldn't keep it away from the burnout track. He
put it on the pad both Friday and Sunday and did spectacular shows both
days, but check out the fire after his Sunday skid. Luckily it didn't seem
to damage the paint, but it looked pretty bad at the time. Hopefully we'll
get to see more of this car on the pad soon.
EVILXA - Revamped and Smokin' Hot
EVILXA was looking a bit sad after hitting a barrier at Summernats and a
few burnout fires (we show fire footage from Gazzanats), so Peter Grmusa
has given the XA Ute a birthday and covered it in a mix of PPG Vibrance
(Key Lime green & white by Auto Passion) and vinyl wrap (by Bling Designs).
He invited us out to watch his debut burnout at a small gathering at an
undisclosed location. As you can see he's got plenty of grunt thanks to the
Powerhouse-built 530ci big block, but still manages to control it
beautifully in the tight confines of the space provided.
Project Digger Burnout Testing
Back when the Army's Project Digger was first getting built I was invited
along to film some burnout testing. As you can see the car wasn't finished
but with time getting short before Summernats 23 they wanted to make sure
it was right to go.
Unfortunately, as a direct result of the testing they decided to not do any
burnout at Summernats that year due to cooling issues. But it sure looked
So for those that haven't seen it in action, here you go.
BEST. POWERSKID. EVER.
I've seen some crazy powerskid action in my time but this Torana takes the
cake. With a big hit of Nitrous and a
heavy right foot this guy smokes the full length of the track in and aesome
display of skill and power.
If you've got a better powerskid then send me a video response.
