There’s new cars breaking cover left, right and centre in Western Australia right now as their drag racing season gets warmed up, and the latest is Connor Begley’s tough radial tyre Holden one tonner.
Connor, the son of Nitro Funny Car racer Anthony Begley, has been hard at work with the family getting the HQ-model ute ready to hit the track.
The tonner will feature a big cube, supercharged LSA built by Eddy Tassone from Active Automotive. A Turbo 400 transmission will get the power to the rear wheels, which are suspended by a ladder bar rear end.
The family expects the car should be able to run into the mid eights, and it will be on the track very soon.
