Re: The Raptor?

As far as I'm concerned the Raptor morphed into the Territory and will be released next year.

That over-the-top ute your talking about I have no idea. My guess would be at Lake Gardiner SA during speed week.

Re: The Raptor?

Yeah the gullwing BA ute was what I meant. Sorry for not saying exactly what I was asking.
But yeah if anyone knows when the Raptor will be released to try and beat the record, could you tell me.

I reckon it will have some impact on the record. They said it can go upwards of 400kmh.

Re: The Raptor?

What they say and what it does are often two separate things. :(
