This supercharged Willys hot rod is a show winner which makes the fact that it's doing a burnout a fairly unusual thing. It was a great all round car, capable of low 11-sec quarters, taking home show trophies and this awesome burnout. I'm pretty sure this car won the car of the show award back at Supernats 2005 when this burnout was performed.

jet bike taking a run down the dragstrip
Decided to blow some dust from the jetcart, it has been standing in the shed for almost 3 years now so it was in need of new fuel lines and a reposition of the propane bottle for safety reasons. We were supposed to race at the summer edition of the Speed Weekend in Halmstad in Sweden but it was postponed thanks to the idiot in charge of the the airport´s insurance company. Hopefully we can race later this summer.
I didn´t have any diesel fuel so I tried to run the afterburner on E85, even running with an unrestriced fuel feed it didn´t get enough fuel since E85 packs much less energy than diesel. It is also a bit dangerous if the afterburner ignition fails since the etanol vapours cannot be seen, diesel fuel sends out billowing clouds of white smoke so there is no risk forgetting that the afterburner fuel pump is on.

IN THIS VIDEO, Kent Shockley challenges Bill Leff to a race in his T-6 Texan, with the help of Rich Gibson and his team of "Killer Bees" with a wall of fire. All three participants in this video are very popular acts at airshows in North America.
PLEASE, NO COMMENTS WITH REGARDS TO POLLUTION, WASTED GAS, AND GLOBAL WARMING.
If you are interested in purchasing DVDs of specific aircraft and/or of airshows, interested in anything and everything related to airshows (where the jet teams will show up, all airshow performers, airshow reports from airshows I have attended, previews of airshows I will be attending, etc.), a much more easier to navigate "version" of all of my videos, and/or everything there is related to aviation - including spotting guides to my favorite airports and military bases and aircraft factfiles, please take the time to check out Steve's Airshow World at http://www.stevesairshow.com .
IN THIS VIDEO, Kent Shockley fires up the newly rebuilt Shockwave Jet Truck and takes it down Runway 24R at Miramar for a dry run. This newly rebuilt Shockwave features many more and much-improved safety features than the original. It is those safety features that were on the original Shockwave that Kent is able to bring to you this "second-generation" Shockwave.
I apologize for any bad color and/or vertical lines or American flag intrusion that may or may not be in this video. Unfortunately there were American flags that got in the way of the video during some critical parts of the videos and I have had some camera trouble throughout the weekend.

2009 Campagna T-Rex 1400R Full Test and Video
Campagna Motors builds its line of three-wheelers by hand in Montreal, Quebec (what is it about Quebec and three-wheelers; there's the Can-Am Spyder, too). The chassis of the T-Rex is constructed from 1.5-inch tubular steel and then covered in fiberglass body panels. This three-wheeler utilizes a double-wishbone suspension at each front wheel and a traditional motorcycle-style swingarm in the rear. Mounted behind the driver and passenger is a 197-hp, 1,352cc inline-4 engine and six-speed sequential manual transmission lifted from the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14 — one of the quickest and most powerful motorcycles made today.
