I can vouch for it. Great rig!! Wouldn't mind one as a second unit for the more serious work!! I might have to get me one of those air tanks too.

What track was that clip done at Bainsy.

it was at neerim east at an unmarked track between carrols road and whitelaws track. i havnt been able to find the track on a map anywhere, and for a good reason! even big lifted nissans and toyotas with 35" muddies and twin lockers had to winch up that day, so its not for the faint hearted! iv had to winch up it before! because the track isnt on a map, can i claim it and call it bainsy's track:rolleyes:

Nice rig,
how do you find the lpg injection, is there much more power gain.

thanks mate! yeh there is a noticable amout of power gain but still needs fine tuneing. im only running it naturally aspirated so the gain is only 10%. i am gettin a custom ball bearing turbo made soon, so once thAt is on, the LPG will add another 30%+ the gain the turbo will give it! im hoping to atleast double the power:D

You mentioned this is spoa, did you need to do many extra mods to suit this?( brake lines etc) how much did that all cost roughly? That is one nice rig, i like it very much! second only to my Feroza!
