    Santa Pod Central RS Owners Day April 05

    Spent most of my time filming the action then I remembered to take a few still pictures












    It's not a Ford but I really liked this Triumph









    I have got about an hour of video to try and edit too

    Basically the rear end is a ladder bar set up,same as the drag racing cars. The engine is a studded 200 block,knife edged crank (revs to 8000rpm) BD14 inlet BD10 Exhaust. GT30 Turbo with external waistgate running 2.5 bar. Siemens 1000cc injectors. Mapped by norris motorsport,Thats about it. Fast as fook though

    ladder bars seem work well for the 1/4 is it possable to fit these bars so they can be removed? so you could have your normal tarmac set up for track days, then you could bolt up these bars for the 1/4 mile

    gotta be careful where you put your instant centre or the car

    can be very unstable through the top end
