True Street Blown - Sport Compact vs. V8 - HEADS UP!

Pro Street racing has been around in Australia since the '80s in a number of guises and is currently being run by the Australian Pro Street Association. The ASPA has recently taken some big steps to combine both the tradtional outlaw Pro Street cars with some of the front runners from the various sport compact classes running in its Outlaw 10.5 class. Basically it is a 'run what you brung' class where as long as you are on a 10.5W tyre and you have two swinging doors, it's legal.

STEVE BARNS' TWIN TURBO V8 NOSTALGIA FX

We are always on the lookout for cool and quirky cars when we are out and about and we happened to come across this tough-sounding FX Holden as it rolled into the staging lanes at a Sydney Dragway Full Throttle Friday meet in November.  Upon closer inspection we couldn't help but notice two sizable turbos visible from under the hood-line, so after watching it crawl off the line before coming to life and sling shotting down the strip for a low 10, we headed into the pits to take a closer look at this old beast.

Horrific drag racing crash

There was plenty of tough cars out on the track for the first Full Throttle Friday of the season and it was none-stop action right through the night. Unfortunately the buzz of the night was dampened somewhat by a horrific accident involving Steven 'Junior' Abreu's 'back-halfed' RX3 and Anthony Daquino's full chassis RX3.

FPV BOSS 335 DYNO TESTING

sites/default/files/BOSS335ATTHEDRAGS.jpg

As I noted in a previous post, our colleagues over at Street Fords had a Ford press car last week and they tested it at the street drags at Sydney Dragway and on a chassis dyno. The first dyno figures generated some vigorous debate on various car forums, so we took up some of the doubters on their challenge to run the BOSS 335 on their dyno.

So we did. And then we went back to the original dyno to run it again.

We filmed it all. Video over the fold.
