A whole new level

Hey guys, I know its not a Old Holden. But I thought some of you other rev heads might like to have a gander at this machine. Owned, Built and Raced by Inky Tulloch, in NZ and over in Aussie. Mate I was with took this photo at the warbirds over wanaka airshow over the easter weekend. He was racing a stunt plane, which of course kicked his arse, but doing over 250k's in a truck like this! AWESOME!
Not sure on the engine size etc (V10 Im guessing, Not sure on Cubes) but they did mention a few stats in the programme guide....
Twin turbo producing around 1700hp @ 4000rpm. Gotta have a heap of tourque!
Turbos make 50psi! Yeap FIFTY!
Turbos spin at 155000rpm max. One Hundred & Fifty Five Thousand!

On his last run he did 3 donuts and then powered out of them into a burn out that lastest half the length of the runway. Just snaking from one side to the other, doing about 80k's... The best thing is, that the skid had FOUR black lines! Sensational!

Cheers guys, Rob.

I remember watching him race on speed week on sbs tv. Truck racing is a classic, except they were speed limited to 160 (I think) on the straight.

Check this out, it's the Bandag Bullet, twin V8, two blowers, 4 turbos. It was at the Tarmak Dragway in Tasmania on the 15 March this year.

You can't see much in the Mpegs because it was dark, but the sound is pretty good.

I have an autographed, framed large print photo of The Bandag Bullet. Signed by Frank.

I picked it up at some sort of charity auction a few years ago.

Looks sweet on my wall!
