Merry Christmas to all and keep it safe with your festivities.
Some great news from the past weekend with the Tradie Ute series that Lion Batteries competes in. The Lion Racing AU XR6 tradie ute performed well all weekend managing to qualify second on Saturday morning, and then winning race 1 after a hard battle clinching the win over the Commodores and other Fords. Race two was marred with some tyre issues but still managed to finish in third.
On the Sunday for races 3 & 4 were both completed in second place giving them 2nd overall for the round which was quite a solid result.
Next round is late October at QLD raceway and if you’re in the area come and check it out.
The Ford Fairlane was meant to be the family car. But this 1966 GTA 390 Hardtop, with its back street racer looks, doesn’t seem to be designed to be the average family grocery getter. To check out other cars on our website, follow this link.
There is nothing wrong with having a go yourself, but it is a very good idea to get expert advice if you’re not sure about what you’re doing. For those that don’t understand what is going on in photo, we have a positive lead (the red cable) tied to both the driveshaft (which rotates) and to the exhaust pipe (which gets HOT). If you’re looking at doing some repairs or modifications, you can get all the components and expert advice you’ll need at Absolute Batteries Toowoomba. We can even do the job for you if you don’t want to make catastrophic mistakes like our friend in the photo.
