After running a 10-second pass last week in his Independent Motorsports Ford Territory turbo, Stathi was out again and backed up those numbers.

Promaz Automotive was out with their newly finished 13B turbo ¾ chassis Mazda RX8. This was Simon’s very first hit out in the car and he was required to complete licensing passes.

Daniel’s Pontiac Firebird runs a mechanically injected twin turbo single cam Nissan RB30 engine.

John Tamba’s immaculate VL turbo was back. John’s goal has always been to drive to the track, run an eight second pass and drive home. John couldn’t attempt anymore passes as the Commodore has not had it’s tech inspection finalised..

Ender has decided take a break from drifting for a while, but that won’t stop him bringing out his JDM Industries 2JZ powered Silvia for a thrash.

As they respond so well to basic modification, Falcon turbos are always popular here.These cars are making big power to move 4000 pounds this quickly.

Christian’s F6 ran well into the tens thanks to a Nizpro stage 2 upgrade kit.

Nemz’s F6 is super quick and looks the part with a new set of wheels ran a personal best pass.

Showing how strong the barra engine is, Anel’s F6 is using a stock bottom end, the only mods are valve springs and head studs.
