Do you have any details? What engine? What time did it run? Did it win? 4WD or RWD?

Enquiring minds want to know!

Dragster 109? Now that's chutzpah! ;-)

Not for nuthin', but that's a big A$$ turbo, so I too am curious about the hp to offset the drag coefficient of a barn! ;-)

I'm not much of a hater but some of the latest posts in this thread are hitting homers right out of the park.

That drag series is awesome though. Those aero mods look very well made.

Do tell...exactly what is it about this that sucks? Looks pretty dang good and the hardtop/truck cab is fire (assume they resolved the gap between the cab back and the roof).
If you ever choked on exhaust through your tears of irritation you'll understand why this is good.

Thats the Hurricane Storm Surge edition. When the water level gets too deep for the Land Rover, they abandon ship to the dingy....

I'm not seeing the suck here. This is an hour from being converted to normal. First rover I've seen with a life boat though.

The interior Looks more like a Mars rover than a Land Rover.
