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.
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.
KRANKY Burns Down Kandos
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.
SIKGMA - Looks Aren't Everything
We were expecting alot from this crazy looking twin supercharged Sigma at PCM but it really didn't deliver. Sure it made smoke eventually but not for long. Hopefully they get it sorted so we can see it ripping some crazy skids 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.
Summernats 26 - Day Two
Day two at Summernats didn't really kick off until midday with the Shannons City Cruise down Northbourne where a good selection of cars cruised in front of 30,000 people they reckon. Then the cruising fired up along with judging and more scrutineering. Unfortunately the EPA knocked the schedule around so we missed out on the burnouts, if there was any to be had. We didn't hear or see any, but we saw plenty of tough rides. Tomorrow is going to go off with burnouts, cruising, go-to-whoa, show 'n' shine, Dyno, the unveiling, Hilltop Hoods and that Guinness World Record Attempt..
GM671 - Summernats Burnout Third Place
I've had nothing but trouble posting this video so I hope you all enjoy it.
After dropping a valve in his Mustang Gary Myers put all his efforts into the Summernats Burnout Comp with the XA Coupe. He almost got there too ad showed that yuou don't need a blower to get on the podium.
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.
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.
YLDTOY Spits Flames at Summernats 26
Plenty of action in the Liqui Moly Burnout Championship at summernats 26. Tony D with YLDTOY was throwing fuel out the cap when it whipped around on the pad, and it didn't take long to light them up. It enough to DQ him.
I have no idea what's going on with the front end, it's almost like they decided to run without front shocks.
13s for $1300 - Project Bluebird - Episode Three
We started removing weight from our Project Bluebird last episode, but that's just given us a taste for more, so we start pulling out more stuff to make the Falcon even lighter.
We also get our hands on some dry ice to help strip the sound deadening from the floor and have a little fun as well.
BLNUTE Ignites at Springnats
Gareth Kerr has been kickin' butt lately with some killer smokefests. He kicked it up a notch at Springnats with this nice little flame show as well. The new blower hat seems to be serving him well but lets hope he gets the flames under control before Summernats.
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 good.
So for those that haven't seen it in action, here you go.
BURNT1 - Tough '32 Tudor
Ross Mayes '32 Tudor is one of the nicest looking hot rods in the country and it's tough as nails too. With a blown 468ci big block up front its got plenty of grunt and despite its showy appearance Ross isn't afraid to give it some. Here's some Dyno and go-to-whoa action from Springnats 2012.
BLWNQ - Awesome Blown HQ Monaro
Andrew Damien has just revamped his blown HQ Monaro. It's gone from white with carbies to black and injected and it looks freakin' awesome. Stay tuned for an exclusive burnout video of this car. Here's a short video of Andrew having a crack (not really) at the go-to-whoa at Springnats.
Summernats 26 - Day Five
Okay guys, sorry for the delay but I needed a short break to unwind after Summernats and had to cach up on some much needed sleep.
Here's the grand finale, with the finals for the Dyno and burnouts. Sorry i didn't get much more footage of day five but it was hectic enough getting all this. Hope you enjoyed the videos this year. Remember to SUBSCRIBE so you don't miss a thing.
