SUBTLE Wins Pro Street Blown at the Street Machine Nationals
It may be SUBTLE by name but Jeremy Callaghan's twin turbo Torana is anything but subtle. Even though it's not the quickest car in the class the Torana swept all before it during the Chicago Shootout in Pro Street Blown at the Street Machine Nationals and then defeeated the Perko Torana in the finals. A solid win from a very cool looking car
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.
Summernats 25 - Day Three
Having trouble loading this file up. hopefully this time it works.
Okay guys, I finally got this to load up. All the action from Friday with
unveiling, bands and plenty of cruising. What a huge day!
Crazy Torana Hatchback Crash at Sydney Dragway
This Torana hatch has a bit of power - maybe too much for those skinny
10.5in tyres. Up front it's got a blown 'n' injected big block chev and the
driver stays into the gas for little too long in the burnout. After a bit
of pitside panel beating it was back out on the track for a shakedown pass.
Kandos Street Machine & Hot Rod show 2011
Kandos is a small village 3hrs north-west of Sydney but once a year it
rumbles to the sound of a roaring V8 as streetcar enthusiasts from all
around converge to fry some tyres, churn some grass and generally have a
great time. Here's a snippet of the action from the weekend. Enjoy!
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.
TUFFST - Hauling Smoke
Wagons are great family trucksters and they make great cruisers too when
built right but Phil Kerjean has one of the few wagons in the country
that's built to burn rubber. Unfortunately we haven't seen the wagon out
and about since this skid, Phil's working on getting it right again and
hopefully we'll see it smoking it up once more. C'mon Phil!
Karl Wicht's Insane Procharged Hatchback Torana
We've been waiting to see this beast run ever since we heard about it being
in the build. Karl Wicht has decided to stand out from the crowd and while
most are going twin turbo he's gone for
a front mounted Procharger set-up. The engine is a Dandy Engines-built
555ci big block chev (Merlin III block) with an 131mm F3R Procharger and it
runs on Roo16 fuel with a Steve Petty-tuned Big Stuff 3 EFI set-up.
Karl's has relatively little seat time in this car but he's gradually
getting the hang of how much power he's got and I reckon we'll see 6-sec
and 200mph very shortly.
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.
Jake Edwards, turbocharged Torana
Jake's single turbo Torana is legendary
in Australia. His ability to crank out big horsepower numbers from
relatively simple combinations defies belief. It's an awesome sounding car
Not sure of the specs when this video was shot because he's had several
motors, but it's a Holden V8 between 308 and 393ci with a large Holset
Holden Stato Backs It Off The Pad At High Speed
What a way to enter... and exit... the burnout pad. This Stato pilot flicks
his luxo barge into the pad at high speed and exits out the other side.
We're suprised he didn't rip anything off as he flew over that drainage
Blast From The Past - 1BADTD V8 Gemini at Easternats
Who would have thought that you could get so much smoke out an old Holden
Gemini? Phil Youlten's legendary 1BADTD is freaking burnout weapon and it
always put on a strong show where ever it went. This was from Easternats at
Sandown back in 2006, I've just dug it out of the archives because it was
such a killer skid. Enjoy.
KRANKY Tries to Burn Down Summernats
Before KRANKY burned down Kandos he tried his best to burn down Sumemrnats
as well. And it was after this burnout that I got clocked in the head by a
bit of rubber.
