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.
UNLOAD On Fire Again!
Steve Loader flames up again at Mallala. But unlike some you can tell Steve
is trying to minimise the damage. It flames up, he stops and hope the
flames out out, then gives it another shot. Unfortunately this time it
didn't work and it flamed up every time he got on the gas.
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.
World's Biggest Burnout Fire!
Justen Brown absolutely torches his Holden ute at Mallanats with one of the
biggest fire shows we've seen.
And then he came out in the finals and do it all again.
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
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..
Scotty's Garage - Top Ten 2012
Here's the Top Ten videos from Scotty's Garage for 2012. These are the top
viewed videos from my channel this year as picked by you guys and girls.
So what's your favourite? And why? Or is there something you reckon that
should have made the list. Let me know in the comments section below.
TOASTR Minivan Rolls At Summernats 26
It was all action at the Liqui Moly Power Pit on Friday with TOASTR falling
over during Qualifying for the Liqui Moly Burnout Championship.
As you can see the driver was okay, stepping out through the windscreen
area within seconds of it going over, and yes the gearbox exploded after
the van flipped on it's side raining carnage everywhere.
FEAR Monaro at Summernats 26
We've been waiting to see this for years, but finally FEAR comes to
Summernats and the Liqui Moly National Burnout Masters. Fred Watson Monaro
sounds amazing and he covered most of the pad, but obviously the Summernats
judges saw something we didn't because Fred only scored seventh with this
UNLOAD Skids at Summernats 26
How good is this beast. Not only did it make it into the Elite Hall at
Summernats but it also hit the burnout pad in style. After this they
cleaned it up and put it in the Top 60 Hall for the big show.
EVILXA - SUMMERNATS 26 LIQUI-MOLY NATIONAL BURNOUT MASTER 2013
Peter Grmusa reckons that Powerhouse Engines are the reason why he's had
such a good year on the burnout pad. The engine has been ultra-reliable and
trouble free which frees Peter up to concentrate on driving. And drive it
Peter smoked out a quality field of entrants to take the Liqui Moly
National Burnout Masters Trophy for 2013 and take home the $15,000 cheque.
With the rest of his wins this year he's up around the $40K mark in terms
of winnings. Well done Peter.
BLOWN Commodore Ute
Mark Schwirse took a standard SV6 Commodore ute and turned it into burnout
monster with the help of the boys from Taverna Brothers Engineering. It's
got a 540 big block with a 14/71 and methanol injection, and pumps out more
power than anyone needs.
But who cares about needs, this is all about wants.
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
Summernats 26 - Day Three
Friday at Summernats 26 started with a bang. First up there was the
Guinness World Record for Largest Simultaneous Burnout with 69 cars on the
pad at the same time, then it was into burnout qualifying with a massive
amount of action there. All the while there was constant cruising, show car
judging and Dyno
(which we'll try and get to today) and then it was time for the unveiling
in the Meguairs Pavilion and the Hilltop Hoods on the main stage - and I've
got to say it was the first time I'd heard them, but they were AWESOME!
Can't wait until Saturday.
