As a few of you know,
I have recently joined a group of panelshops / smash repairers here in Sydney
I have always been a Mazda fan and a keen follower / supporter / racer of the 1/4 mile of black stuff
I had already started a project prior to this change, which I was trying to run a 10 for $10k and was making pretty good progress
Here was the car
And I thought I was doing pretty well until I had a chassis bloke look at her - who showed me all of this
So after a bit of thought - we decided to throw the budget out the window and do this !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Will post updates of the nice new parts coming from the states and progress as we go
If the Mighty ALCHO12A can run a 8.1
Hopefully the PANELCORP RX3 can go quicker (with Steve, Dale, Dave, Chris, Rob and a heap of other guys support)

Matt at CONCEPT PAINTS was very keen to help out and all I can say is Thanks !!
