This car sounds like the car from Ted Traceys. This car is a beast. Test drove it before I got mine but it was to crazy to be used as a commuter :twisted:

Nice, but that link is to an RX.
Gotta love those rims on that RX though.

Might pay to do something about the pod just sitting there in the engine bay though.

I was thinking of going to ted tracey and seeing if I could swap my rims for those ones :lol:

No conversions here, it would be a crime to do that to this RS.
She'll get a roll cage, race seat and harness ... she's upset enough people without having to do any sort of engine conversion!

I've just had to put another muffler in the exhaust system ... I was starting to go deaf :lol:
In the last couple of months the car seemed to get louder and on my last day Repco decided to give myself the mad hookup and convinced one of the regular customers to 'do me a favour' on the welding.
So now my nanna hearing isn't being damaged any further and all for a fantastic $45 oooohh baby yeah! :D

After a gear box swap in the weekend (thanks Cameron and Chook :mrgreen:) it appears I have a funky looking after market lightweight flywheel; I have to say that I'm rather pleased about that. The clutch wasn't taken off but from what was seen from the side she has plenty of holes. The more we look into this girl the more I'm pleased I bought one already done :D

I’m looking forward to opening the gear box up to see what it’s hiding in there!
