Brenthel Industries Aussie spec class 1


Hi guys,

Here are a few progress pics of the pro buggy that I'm currently getting built by Jonathan and the team at Brenthal Industries. If all goes to plan I will race it over there in the BITD Silver state 300 on the first weekend of May.

That looks awesome!! I've bought a Brenthel 7200 front clip for my truck, it looks very similar to the front of your buggy. I love their work.

Thanks DMK, the quality of their cars are amazing. We are flying out this weekend to watch the mint 400 in Vagas and check out the progress of the car, so I will post some more pics when we are there.

Hi,

Here are a few more progress picks of where the car was up to when we arrived in the US on the 18/3. Just waiting on all the parts to come in.

A few more pics of where it was at when we left on 29/3. Starting to look like somthing now with most of the parts from king and Fortin turning up just waiting on the engine plate which should be finish tomorrow, it has taken a while to design due to being the first VK56 plate Fortin have done, then they can mount the engine and build the exhausts using the spare engine as the race engine wont be finished untill next week. A busy few weeks ahead to have it finished by end of the month.

cheers,

Glen

Thanks for the nice comments,

I'm hoping to have it back home in time for Milbrodale.

Unfortunately I have had to make a change in the engine that is going into the car due to some hold ups with vendors and there is no possible way the car will be ready if I run the Nissan so now it will have a 550hp Ls2 package fitted for the race over there and the rest of this year and I will fit the Nissan over our Christmas break.

should get some more pics this week which I will post when I get them.

cheers,

A few more progress pics that I recieved today, the panels were sent this morning for the body wrap to be fitted and the CBM Ls2 arrived ready to be installed. All is still on track for the race just a few late nights required smile.

We are flying out in the morning so I will try to post while we are over there, but if not follow the rest of the build and some race weekend action on our facebook page @ Glen Towers Racing
