I drag raced an HQ Holden with a 350 in it.

I did 4x4 in Landrovers with all kinds of motors.

I club raced a Escort 1300, RS2000, Lynx, RX7s then a clubman openwheeler.

And this year I will be helping out on what we hope to be a championship winning clubman.

I dont drive anymore as racing killed my hearing and that damage lead to an inner ear condition that no longer allows me to handle hard turns. Think of car sickness on steroids.


Sick cars there, was it a genuine RS2000? I thought those were quite rare? My Esky has a 1600 GT Crossflow engine, but not original.
Hq was a flat bed ay?

The RS2000 was not genuine, but it was a type 49 shell with all the correct bits. Mk1 RS2000's are moon beams.

HQ was a Premier so a sedan. The utes were leaf sprung so hopless for drags.

A Spoon muffler on an Integra was 114 db, with silencer in, it was 105db.
Stock intake and outlet diameter too.


In fact you can listen to how loud it is
