New Project: Tomcat 6l LS2 V8 on Spider 9’s

leave a comment »

After finishing the yellow buggy on portals we’re already working on the next project!

This project will be pretty different than what we did with the last few trucks. Instead of using the Twisted Customs chassis or our own Taurus chassis, our customer has chosen for a Tomcat chassis which is Land Rover based.

The Tomcat will be powered by an LS2 V8 with 490bhp and 680 Nm torque with a TH350 gearbox and a 2 speed Atlas transfer case. With this huge amount of power the land rover axles are replaced by the Spidertrax Spider 9 axles with Hi9 differentials!

As the tomcat will be mainly used for speed events it will be running small 35″ BF Goodrich MT KR tires, especially designed for speed events on the new STAUN racing TX wheels with staun internal beadlocks!
Off course the suspension on this a racer is very important, so it has Radflo 2″ coilovers and triple bypass shocks on each corner which will make the tomcat very stable on high speed!

A huge 170l ATL FIA Approved fuel cell will be placed in the back, to be able to do long speed races.

First pictures on the built so far can be found below. Further updates on this unique racer will follow very soon!!
