Hi
Good pics Lurch, where you there or a friend?
As you can see by the tyre smoke on one side of the car my LSD wasn't working.
Just put a 4.4 in and it wasn't tight enough and i didn't have enough time to fix it.
Bummer to as i was only .5 of the best 2wd time
and .4 of the top 12 shootout.
Bloody had a ball and cant wait till next year , with the LSD sorted and the Rb26 will be in and
sorted by then look out.

That 260 2+2 had the quickest time of 42 seconds. Has GTR 4wd and 600+ hp chevy

Allot off great cars where there and it was run fantastically my hat is off to the
organizers of the event and the volunteers on the weekend

Regards
Paul

No I just was linked the pics from another forum, Paul:

FWIW Kev's 2+2 is a 6ltr Alloy headed Chev, 5-speed Jerrico & a Hilux transfer case grafted on the back with a custom super HD input shaft,
R200 rear & R180 in the front ;)

Hi
Brabham, Its a full race motor ie "H" beams, forged pistons , ported head , cams etc Got a custom twin high mount with a pair
of tomei turbos  and gone external oil pump aswell. Hoping for around 300kw at wheels on around 18psi, The motor will handle way more
than that but i built it for reliability more than outright power. It makes it easier when your mate is a race engine builder.

Z  Yeah Kevins 260 is a brute of a thing, Sounds fantastic aswell.

Regards
Paul
