Lightbulb 2004 Brutes

In SMH today, Peter Mackay mentions that this years Brutes will be lighter, faster, cheaper and different this year.
What changes are they making? and how far off the stock street spec are they?

Re: 2004 Brutes

Not a great deal is changing the Fords will still all be AUs even tho some have BA body work. The main changes are a new 17" by 8" control wheels, upgraded brakes & side exiting exhausts.

Re: 2004 Brutes

I thought the Boss engine was approved allowing the ls1 to gain power.

Re: 2004 Brutes

I thought Luff had been winning the last 2 years in the Falcon, infact he did last year.
Many Falcon podium finishes all through the year. Its not a Commy feast at all.

Re: 2004 Brutes

I thought the first year of the brutes the commies were crying for parity changes coz the fords were smacking them bad.

Re: 2004 Brutes

the boss of procar only made these upgrades to make the holden more competitive I.E the standard monaro would not stand a chance so he and his board of directors let in 7L monaro and Brock to draw some crowds. the SS ute has lost 2 years in a row to the XR8 and by decent margins to, so he will try and do something about this.
