AGROVB - E85 Fueled & Supercharged 253ci Commodore
We're suckers for anything different, especially when someone takes an
engine that everyone else thinks is crap and does something with it. Alan
Shuttleworth likes to think outside the box to,o which is why he's built
this little 253ci Holden V8 for his VB Commodore. Last year the car made
280rwhp on E85 with no blower, but now with a B&M 162 blower on top it's up
to 342rwhp and it certainly sings. Would a 308 make more power? Maybe, but
we've seen plenty make less, and the owners can't say, "It's only a 253
when they lift the bonnet". Nice work Alan.
BEST BURNOUT EVER! SUMMERNATS GUINNESS WORLD RECORD BURNOUT!
Summernats 26 broke a Guinness World Record for the most amount of cars in
simultaneous burnout on January 4, 2013 in Canberra, Australia. When the
massive blanket of smoke eventually cleared, Chris Sheedy from Guinness
World Records told the 10,000 plus crowd that exactly 69 cars had managed
to complete a 30 second burnout. Sixty nine. That's a 'Nats kind of number.
Drivers came from all across Australia to fry their tyres together in this
historic event, some traveling thousands of kilometres from Western
Australian and Northern Queensland to take part in the rare feat.
138 tyres x 30 seconds x over 35,000 horsepower = 1 world record.
Thank you to the drivers, staff and sponsors for making this incredible
The Burnout World Record, supporting the National Tobacco Campaign's MyQuit
Buddy QUIT SMOKING APP. Burn rubber, not tobacco.
