This car has run a 7.1 but has only hit the track a handful of times and stil isn't running all that much boost!

Car is a genuine Holden LJ Torana GTR XU1. Originally powered by and in-line 202ci 60cylinder with tripple carbs. Now has a MONSTER 400ci with two big turbos and some rather big tyres up the back. SOUNDS INSANE!

Licence plate says MR MAD!

This car was featured in last month's Street Machine mag (Australian), it has one of the nicest engine bay I have seen, I was almost temped to stop work on Scott's car and start working on this one :) .

I donít actually have the mag atm but I have read it in there he talks about changing it to a pro-charger, so he can compete in the blow outlaw category in Australia. If I can find a issues of the mag I will get some pics its well worth it.
