Twin Turbo V8 Lexus-powered Capri

Joe Geri's Capri recently featured in Street Machine Magazine and it has run as fast as 8.34 at 164mph. But instead of running a V8 Ford engine Joe has gone for a 4-litre Lexus V8, which is legally the biggest engine he can fit to the car and turbo it while remaining totally street legal. He drives this car to the track, bolts on some slicks, runs eights and drives it home. It's a true street and strip warrior. Nice one Joe!

Wicked Fast 2JZ-powered BMW M3 - Gas Motorsports
We love quick cars and don't really care what they're powered by, so we reckon this Toyota 2JZ powered BMW M3 is pretty awesome. Check out the second pass where it runs in the sevens after stepping off the gas well before the finish line. This car is going to be a weapon once they get it sorted!





13s for $1300 - Project Bluebird - Episode 12
To fix the lazy shifts we've made a few mods the wiring harness of our Project Bluebird so we can get the trans shifting a little harder. It takes less than $20 of parts, a few wires, and a soldering iron to get the job done. Hopefully it works on the track.





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.





Winternationals V8 Twin Turbos
Three twin turbo "street" cars from the recent Winternationals held at Willowbank raceway. As you can see they're all pretty quick.





BLK40T - Real 8-second Streetcar
When it comes to Pro-Street racing there's plenty of cars that just wear the numberplates and never see the street, but Joe Geri's twin turbo Capri isn't one of them. With a 4-litre Lexus quad-cam V8 under the bonnet it is 100% NSW street legal and as you can see on the video it can run an 8.38 at 160mph on 275 width drag radials. In fact Joe even drove the car to the track, something he does every meeting, and since the 4-litre combo went in the car has done over 35,000kms on the street and over 350 passes on the track along with 100 runs on the Dyno. How's that for reliability? What a car!





TUF253 Torana Smokes It Up
Yep, it's powered by a 253 with a Supercharger from a UD truck for a bit of fun. Shannon loves a bit of burnout action and he's a regular viewer/commentor here on Scotty's Garage so be nice. :)





Summernats 23 - Orange XE Falcon with pink smoke





RAT545 - Rusty Galaxie Burnout
They reckon you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover. Well don't judge this rusty old Galaxie by it's surface patina. The 545 cube big block ford engine has enough grunt to put any arguments to rest.





H8TRED Shares The Love At Avalon
Lots of RPMs and passenger antics. Worth the watch





PILTZY'S Hatch at Avalon
Brett Piltz hauled his Torana hatchback all the way to Avalon (from Wagga) for Tread Cemetery and delivered a serious smokeshow for his team.





MELTEM Goes Bang!
This blown V8 powered Toyota Corolla was going great until the bits inside the engine decided they wanted to be outside.
