We thought it was about time we posted some pics of our car.

It has recently undergone a ground up rebuild, which lasted a year. It all started when someone reversed into it in a workshops carpark

The car was originally white with a pretty standard black interior, it is now a House of Kolor Kandy Green, with a re-upholstered interior in Buff suede.

It is an SR20DET with a JHH Street Force Head, running a TriMatic gearbox

It has made 442hp at the wheels on pump fuel, no gas, Mick has only done one pass with this set up, which was at Jamboree Version 2. The car went 10.7 @ 132mph with a slow 60ft, his second and last pass of the event, ended just after the 60ft mark as he broke an axle on launch and we have not been back to race it again yet.

With the axles replaced Mick is keen to get back to the track to see what the car can do.

If it comes to it, Mick will pull the slicks back out and see what it can do on them.

The engine was built by Danny and tuned by Justin, both from Competition Tuning & Performance

We will gradually add more pics of the build process.

big thumbs up guys yous did a awesome job this time round, the cars looking the best ive ever seen it, and ive been around it for along time now, congrats on the mag cover, im waiting for my copy to arive over here, shouldnt be too long now,

how about that power, throught the auto too, tuff asa nails, and cant wait to see what times it runs, still amazed it broke a shaft on street tires, the setup and auto are really dialed in id guess,

look forward to get back out with yous again when i eventually get back to aus, again congrats on the build,

Thanks mate, the car actually ran 10.60 @ 127mph on Thursday night at Willowbank, so really happy with that. That was street tyres, driven to and from the track

Will get more out of it yet, was racing with out a tacho the other night and a few other little issues to sort, just wanted to get a few runs on the board before mini jam.

Thanks for all the positive comments

Mike - Brian does an awesome job, you wont be dissappointed with his work.

this car looks unreal in the Fast fours poster.. gotta find somewhere safe to stick it up. The new FF has some good datto pics in it. I think Micecz and GUN16 got a start in it too.

Thanks for the comments guys...

Update - the car has run 10.400, was a couple of month ago at MiniJam at Willowbank. Mick ran a 10.400 on a 10.40 dial in ;)

He ended up winning Super Mod class at the event. Mick was running on slicks and pump fuel.

Here is a link to the video, there are a few other videos on YouTube aswell.

Mick has a few more things ready to do to the car, so hopefully he can drop this time soon :)
