XCHASE Finally lowered my PB. 10.42 @ 133mph Manual H pattern

After some testing yesterday at Adelaide International Raceway I finally managed to lower my PB to 10.42 @133mph, In a Manual VLT.

Taking it from 10.66@136mph. Its taken almost 12 months to get to this point.
Next challenge will be to give it a go on the Bottle. Had one attempt late in the arvo and it skated the track. Felt amazing but was unable to do another run.

Im still chasing SA's Record which is 10.26@138mph.


Big thanks to Graham from BOSS diff's for the bullet proof borg warner.
Dave from Mr Transmissions in QLD for the amazing straight cut gearbox.

Yeah mate Dave's box he built me is amazing. Its now done at least 60 passes at the track and it just keeps going. Maybe a couple little changes will see it run a little quicker.

Runs a BW diff with 31spline full spool and TA diff hat. As for tailshaft it was a 1 pce that's now become a two piece. Need to get a new one.

Good work Steve.

Do you have something sprayed/applied to your rear bumpers, in the corners where they usually get covered in rubber?? In the pic i seem too notice it, like there was a film of some sort on there.

Hey Shaun. I hadn't washed the car since last meet it was dirty. I only have a piece of tape holding in the top trim so the tyres don't rub. I always spray Wd40 over the areas affected by rubber spray as it dosent stick to the panel. Looks grubby bit washes off easy
