    Its a no from me

    Why would you spend all that time & money doing something like this & leave the chassis, suspension & front brakes totally stock?
    So much good engineering is a bit of a waste imo

    how do you make a turbo work on stock carbs? What's the butterfly valve doing at the front? Looks like some lawn ornament
    those shocks must be horribly soft with that extended swinger

    but to each his own I guess

    Could have bought a stock 'busa ( better handling0 probably similar power AND much cheaper.

    Ralph runs standard carbs on his turbo FWIW but as for said Rex, whilst I appreciate the engineering its certainly not my thing.


    Each to their own indeed sir

    Absolute eye-sore IMO.

    Each to their own, but a lot of crap thrown on it for the sake of it. Polished diamond plate isn't a great look either.

    Obviously just a show piece, if it was built for the drag strip it would be more practical instead of full of blingy bullshit, but it's probably taken in a van to the odd show where it gets revved loudly and then put back in the van to go home for more polishing. That's why things aren't upgraded as I bet it doesn't see the road.

    Also something that bugs me is loads of attention on polished crap but can't be bothered to get the rear brake hose routed nicely.

    Sorry, each to their own and all that, but I'm not a fan - could you tell
