LSX Commodore ~ 8.59 @ 169mph on IRS

In Drag, Video by fullboost

After breaking numerous stock drive-shaft / axles, Chris the owner of this vicious VX Holden has fitted a set of aftermarket axles with immediate results. The car ran a string of 8-second passes at the King of the Street event at Heathcote. The Commodore features a 7L LSX engine built by Flowcraft and boosted by a Precision turbocharger on E85 fuel. The factory IRS suspension is still in place transmitting well over 900hp to 275mm radial tyres.
