Racing the HT Monaro.

Thank you for the reply to my earlier message. For racing the HT Monaro are we better running the 350 Chev or staying with the 308 as they were a standard fit here to the South African Monaros. There is some thought that the 308 worked will be a better option, this I doubt but please any advise would be appreciated. Can anyone also help with the tricks or options one did in racing the Monaro back in the 70's. Thank you all for being there and I am glad to see the page up and running again. Cheers. David '

The 350 GTS Monaro was called the Bathurst Monaro for reasons that it was raced at Bathurst of course. It was fitted with some heavy duty components including a 350 Chevy engine, Saginaw gearbox with Hurst shifter assembly and a Chev 10 bolt limited slip diff. The radiator used a thicker core than other models. The brakes were also upgraded with thicker heavy duty disks and the brake booster was replaced with a tandem diaphram unit. The rear axle was also fitted with traction rods to eliminate axle hop off the mark and to keep torque on the road instead of absorbing it in the drive train.

There were a number of standard improvements that you should be able to take advantage of to get a fast car in order.
