guys frewer make a cool sierra cosworth body which if painted int he old Peter Brock mobil1 colours would look excellent. i saw the part number once on radiomodels.com.au. or maybe one of the sydney shops can bring them in. i also saw one at kelletts approx 2 years ago! . comes with the big wing at the rear also!

frewer might even make a r32, they also make the toranas and vl commodores i think.

Did they ever race the appendix J class at one of the big Bathurst meets?

You'd get some good choices for body style there!!

Appendix J is the Tourers from the Past which was what started Bathurst.

I'd love to get a Hummer, but I'm quite sure they've never run one of them!!

It probably wouldn't fit the v1-s either...

What was that BIGass car that ran in the eighties Apendix J class?
I'm thinking it was a cadillac or some other yank-tank.
Would It qualify anyway?

If you go to bathurst, drop into the motor museum just up from the nickerboker. they should have something.

whats the ruling on fuel tanks bigger than 75ml? discussion item from last tuesday.

I was of the understanding that the tank had to be safe, and under the car body.

Default Fuel Tanks

So what youre saying is that Fuel Tanks are Open, as long as their within the Body, so you put in the Big Drop Tank, especially if your Running a Torana Body.

the final will have 20 drivers, unfortunately it sounds like tyre changes are out, but BIG fuel tanks are in...(so it seems anyway)

maybe if you get hit in the drop tank, we can have a few pace car laps under yellow, and pitstop stategy may come into play!!

Hopefully your pitman is not driving next to you in the final!!
