There are a few V8 vans up here now - what engine is in yours?

Is that the one with the locost front suspension and sierra rear?

If it is, the guy had a tweaked 4.6 in it - he also put it in the field at the Crail drift track.
The 'Just Booglin' van has recently arrived in fife.
See you at Crail sometime.

That engine may be a little difficult on the street. I have opted for a more modest 7.5 litre Big Block Ford giving 510Bhp and 550 Lb ft torques.

Remember perspective all depends on where you are viewing from. Now where's that shoe horn!

Not sure. I'll have a look. If I remember rightly, it's as quick in the corners as it is in a straight line.
