TheHeat Side
TheHeat Burnout 'The Heat' is a 2003 VY SS Commodore Sedan that was donated to the NT Police 'Beat the Heat (NT)' program by Holden Ltd in October 2003. The car has been slightly modified for 'drag racing' and 'badged up' in NT Police livery to resemble an operational police car. The original motor was provided by Holden Motor Sport and was one of the first T1 series Monaro motors specially built for Peter Brocks 05 Targa Monaro. TheHeat has been developed for street racing on the track and as such will remain in street trim and continue to look as stock as possible.

In 2006 the motor was refreshed and upgraded to give greater reliability and better performance. Whilst the team will continue to gradually improve the performance in the car,

In 2011 the motor was completely rebuilt and dyno tuned by Power Torque Engines after sustaining some damage.
