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
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.
13s For $1300 - Project Bluebird - Episode 14
Here we go guys, the episode you've all been waiting for - Episode 14. We
take the car for a run at Wilby, an 1/8th mile track in Northern Victoria,
for a bit of fun and see if we can win a trophy. Hope you enjoyed the
series. If I decide to keep the car I might do a few upgrades later on and
see how much quicker we can make it, while keeping the budget low. Stay
tuned though because after I tidy up the garage I'm going to start on my
new project and it's going to be a big one.
Edit: as it turns out this wasn't the last episode so check out the next
STREET MACHINE NATIONALS 2011
Held at Sydney Dragway the Street Machine Nationals combined the best bits
of the modified car scene with burnouts, show cars, pro street drag racing
and hot women. With all the best Pro Street cars, shows cars, and cool
streeters it was a pretty awesome weekend. Can't wait until next year.
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.
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.
STUNCH - Blown LEXUS 4-litre V8
Those 4-litre quad cam V8 seem to be the motors of the moment. After the
LS-bsaed engines they seem to be the most popular engine to slot into
something else. But occassionally we'll see a factory fitment with
something special like this m112 Supercharger on this Lexus (toyota celsior
Rob Campisi - Twin Turbo Mustang
Rob Campisi is probably best known for his twin turbo Cortina BWARND which was one of the first
Pro Street car s in Australia over 200mph. Now he's built this twin turboMustang which is the quickest turbo car in Australia. None of these passes are
truely representative of the car's performance. It can run low 6s at over
220mph, but there's no real drag racing class for this car. I just love it
because it's cool.
