Video: Getting Supermang ready for its first burnout competition!

In this episode of Carnage, Scotty preps our L67-swapped VN Berlina to take on the burnout pad

In the Carnage stable, we have quite a few cars capable of doing some sick burnouts, but we reckon the one that blazes rubber the best out of the lot is Supermang.

When the boss tabled the idea of us taking a car to Motorfest in Lardner Park, Victoria to do some burnouts, the supercharged VN was the obvious choice.

However, before we could get to murdering some poor old 15-inch tyres, the VN needed some last-minute prep to make it legal for the pad.

For starters, the rules require that we run a tailshaft loop to stop the ’shaft coming through the floor should the worst happen. So, we obtained a Proflow one through our friends at VPW Australia, and after some nutting out, Scotty had the loop fitting nicely in the VN.

The next item on the to-do list was adding a radiator overflow tank, because the stewards don’t want you dropping litres of coolant on the pad. We picked up a 2.5-litre tank from Proflow’s range, and Scotty squeezed it into the VN’s engine bay.

Scotty then raided our back stock of 15-inch Commodore stockies, picked a set, and then removed the wheel weights (as per burnout rules for crowd safety), before bolting them on for a cheeky test hit.

If you’re in the area, make sure you head out to Lardner Park this weekend to see the Supermang in action, as well as a show ’n’ shine, exhibits and heaps more. See you there!
