Lol yea they are the same cooler, brenno liked mine
Both cars running Borg Warner Diffs with 31 spline moser axles.
Think brennos is 3.9 with 28,9" tyre.
Mine is 3:45 with 28,9

They actually do look the same off the line in the pics, amazing really seeing both cars have completely different rear end set ups, the only thing the same is the diff covers lol go the borgwarners!!

not sure on rpm crossing the line, the convertor has a lot of slip still.
ideally i should be using the 26,10 with the 3.45's but i couldn't be assed changing the centre

fix the convertor coz, fix the ration, couple pound more boost and i see this low budget missile easily going 8.70... track prep for an extremley cold day with next to no sun was awesome...

p.s take that dam headlight out u goose, lower those intake temps = more hp

if it can 1.40 60 every time i'll be happy, run 5.8 @123 to the 1/8th mile but definitely need to go solid cam conversion, my lawn mover has more power than it after the run.
stupid lifter pump up.

How bigs your hydraulic though?..i'm guessing a lot smaller than this one, it would probally go just as quick with 20 thou less duration and no pump..
cheers

both these cars would run a nice regular consistent 8s if they had a bigger tyre.

any of you guys thought about mini tubbing etc like gh747 sort of rear end ?
