Introducing MGAWOT III

After 100s of hours work, MGAWOT III is about to be unleashed on the world. This new beast from RIPS is running a Vi-PEC i88.

The plan is to be all ready for Dragmasters on 4th January, 2014 at Fram Autoline Dragway in Meremere.

This is where MGAWOT III will be paired against a V8 car that runs similar times on the day. There will then be 3 races with points awarded to the winner of each round. There are usually 15 pairs of cars in the Dragmasters field meaning 45 races with the team accruing the most points taking out the win.

This video clip is of the first fire-up of MGAWOT III (there are many video clips of the tuning of MGAWOT III on RIPS Racing Facebook page):

Robbie has posted various comments on Facebook, including "Power coming up nicely. 600wkw @ 19 psi by 8500rpm." Also posted on 31st Dec: "NOS time!"

What a great way to spend New Year's Eve.
