Daniel Linderman from Dragons Lair Motorsports has been very busy prepping his mental BA Falcon over an agonizing 12 months basically redesigning the whole car! The car has run a best of 8.86@143mph weighing in at 1700+kg’s in its previous form on a 3 quarter track pass, so it wasn’t slow to begin with at any stretch of the imagination. After much deliberation, planning & research DLM & Daniel decided to go to the next level sporting a custom DLM-Spec 1098R bottom end with a killer DLM-Spec Stage 6 Solid Lifter Cylinder head and custom cam configuration. The peripherals needed to be addressed accordingly so a custom race-port DLM inlet manifold with duel injector rails, 100+mm throttle body, and Mental custom 6Boost exhaust manifold to compliment a very special turbo charger from Precision….
Controlling all of the above is a Platinum Haltech 2000 with all the bells and whistles including electronic dash, AMS1000, and custom CDI unit for plenty of spark. The drive-train is a modified T400 auto with trans-brake and custom 9inch sporting a strange ultra case, major modifications have occurred in this region and plenty of other tuff bits have been fitted.
We will refrain from forecasts and speculations and let the numbers do the talking very shortly! A small video below for your enjoyment showing the little Dragons heart on the test cell for the final time with all systems go, Daniel has managed not to sleep very much at all in the past few days so the fitting of the engine and most peripherals are almost completed within 72hours! A few pics below as well for your enjoyment, join us in this most exciting journey and watch this space! Further and better particulars of tuning and quarter mile testing will be made available as soon as the events take place!
Update: The Little Dragon is now the fastest BA XR6 Falcon in the Australia!
