Paul.

Both Adam and Kyle went thru hell with the lift, its only 4inch suspension not 6inch and a 3inch body.

But the viabrations were a bitch to rid.

Adam (original builder) originally had a double cardin shaft in there, which Kyle threw away tryin to sort it out. In the end with the engine and gearbox conversion he had to go with custom shafts anyway, that sorted it out a little with gearbox packers and the like.

Heres Adam driving it up Prado Hill if I remember correctly

In the hands of the wrong person, this car could cause issues.. its very capable.

Eric you will have no problems with Rocky Track or the Steps up Toolangi way with that thing.

And as I said as a bonus it's red and all red cars go faster you should know that being in the car business. LOL.

Toon..
its an ex competition car built partly by Sandy Bowman at Aus4wd specialists..

its probably one of the more capable shortys around. Still I would chuck that donk away and go with a V8 Turbo Diesel Chev. or even a TD42T like Draftys, pumpin out well up around 180kw at wheels(if i remember correctly).

mate blew his TB apart tonight, he drowned it rods thru block and all...

Kyle I have to ask what you are driving now.
I can only imagine that you would have stepped up to something better with the experience you put into that thing the new whatever would have to be magic. It's got to be a Toyota I guess ?

Your a hoon Eric I guess that once it's in your system you can't go without.

Or maybe it's cause it's red. They always go faster.

If you ever hire a car get the red ones they go better.
