AWESOME. Mate that's superbly presented - you do your own fabrication & prep? Yours makes mine look like the home-built shitter it is!

I'm impressed.

Cheers Mate,,the only time it left the shed was for the roll cage its to hard to pass cams regs if you build it yourself,,everything else was done in the shed,

Or should i say in house.

Cheers Marty

Re: Pics of my XE Circuit Race Car,,nearly finished.

hi aussiemart flipped out last night when seing the pics of your car.i thought i was seeing double my car is a 85% the same as yours.I bet you have had a tough time building the car finding out infoand finding out the hard way by buying stuff you dont need and so on.i started building my car on and off 5 years ago and its about a month away from being finished.You might run into a bit off a problem with brake vaccum iff your running a big cam.im converting my car to twin master cylinders using bracketry from a djr xe that a freind owned and sold last year.if you are after any info let me know maybe you could help me,i still cant get over that their is another crazy bugger out their building a improved production racecar. great pics very nice job done maybe i will give you a race some time.

Re: Pics of my XE Circuit Race Car,,nearly finished.

Thanks for the encouraging words guys..

I should have it out on the track very soon,, i drove it to work last week:-) and i also had a good 45 minute drive the other night, it pissed down with rain during the drive too,, tractions not too bad in the wet with the yokey Ao48r tyres but i am taking it easy. all i can say at the moment is its a mechanical monster:-) I had this exact same driveline in an xw but having driven my xa with an auto and powersteering and now ive got a au xr8 220 manual for the past few years it really is raw,, Just got to get used to the detroit locker toploader and no powersteer.it is an eye opener,, plus it has a far bit more poke than the xr8:-)

Ive just had a new muffler custom made by genie exhaust, the current hooker aero chamber muffler is WAY too loud, so i will get some pics of it and try and get some video of the car running\driving during the week

Cheers Marty
