C510GVU is "Cummin'" for ya...enjoy..
Some work gone in to that, sounds brilliant!
Looks a really nice job.
^ I agree, its not mine.. but it does look like fun and the way Landy SHOULD have made it..lols!
My first (and last) experience of a Landy was driving a SWB Series 2 (I think...) that someone had put an RV8 into. Bearing in mind the V8 was pretty asthmatic it was still bloody terrifying - like those nightmares you have (well, I have them anyway) where I'm driving along and none of the controls work - steering, brakes, clutch, throttle.....
^ I used to drive V8 90" Defenders at work; they were an absolute hoot. Withdrawn when a colleague lost the back end (they were prone to this under heavy braking), spun and ended up wedged between a lamp post and a wall....they fuel tank is under the seat on the 90 and the driver was badly burned.
I followed his FB channel; it took a huge amount of work and ingenuity to make it work and all credit to him. Although very impressive, every time I see clouds of black smoke coming out of any Defender, I can't help but cringe though.....
There are various ones with Corvette LS3 V8s in them, pushing out up to 550 bhp which must be entertaining. E.g.
LS3 V8 Defender, 430bhp+
Seriously good project...a nice rustic Q.
I have a 2.5Tdi called Vera. That is plenty quick enough for a 1940's based chassis
There ought to be a balance of grip, drivability and power in any vehicle!
.....but then I am guilty of putting 2 x 750bhp JCB engines in a one metre wide projectile and getting it to 350mph....but my excuse is that it wasn't a road car
