Last few days we have been doing a few improvements on the Twisted customs buggy FireAnt!

To be even more competitive in the new season than before, FireAnt had a few major changes to the tubular chassis. Below pictures show more than words will tell. The chassis is being sandblasted as we speak an will get a complete respray! We also did a few modifications on the brake system and are VERY pleased with the result! (even with 44″ Boggers).

C.A.T.: Chris Abel’s Taurus

leave a comment »

As we announced earlier on our blog (click here to see post), Chris Abel and Jim Marsden have choosen for our Taurus tubular chassis with Defender look to use as a base for their new competition truck!

This weekend we started on the build of Chris Abel’s Taurus (C.A.T.), as you can see on the pictures, the engine (6l LS2 with gearbox and Atlas transferbox) are mounted in the chassis so the Land Rover front and rear bulkhead with truckcab roof could be installed by Chris and Simon who both came over to our workshop. The installed body panels give the tubular frame immediately the looks of real car!

As shown on the pictures, the snorkel is also installed together with some parts of the steering.

As we always try at D&G this car will be built with a high attention for details to keep the weight as low as possible and the truck as balanced as possible for both high speed events as technical challenges!

Follow this blog to see the updates on C.A.T.!

Tomcat Update: First test approaching!

leave a comment »

Again an update on our tomcat project!

This LS powered racing monster is getting closer to its first time out!

In the meanwhile we worked hard on it, all the welding is done, cabel loom for the engine is finished together with the waterproof display box with all the switches, gauges and fuses. All the brackets for the bodypanels, seats etc are also finished.

As you can see the Tomcat will have a huge ATL FIA approved fuelcell with a capacity of 170l!

Now we are rebuilding the vehicle unpaited to get it to Scruteneering for the Dutch offroad racing championship. After that it will get its first test, then it will be taken apart again to get it painted!

Next few days/weeks you will find a lot more updates on this projects on this Blog, so stay tuned!

Andy from the Belgian 4×4 Activ magazine will follow the Libya rally raid which will take place the next few weeks in the Tunesian desert (due to political reasons, more info on http://www.ldc-rallye.com) in his nicely prepared Toyota Hilux.

This is of course a great opportunity to give the Staun Internal Beadlocks a test in this extreme environment!

Andy will write about his experiences in the Tunesian Desert with the Staun Internal Beadlocks in one of the next editions of the magazines together with a full installation report!
