Shane O'Sullivan VC Valiant V8 Chrysler 408 Stroker 10.25 PB Perth Motorplex Fast Friday 11.02.2011
It was great to see Westside Drag Racing Association Club President Shane
O'Sullivan out running a new personal best time of 10.25 at the Perth
Motorplex Fast Friday 11.02.2011, which was later followed by another 10.23
The Club Prez has been away working hard on offshore oil rigs, and it was
good to see him back at the track burning out and doing what he
loves...high speed drag racing!!
Shane's 408 cubed retro Valiant is Mopar powered, and has had EFi fitted.
Shane's PB also came about with the help from a set of custom Exhaust pipes manufactured by Dragtech
Fabrication (Rick Johns) which were fitted just prior to his new best time.
Shane reports that the time may not stand for too long however, with a new
intake manifold on the way.
Well done to all the team and people who have helped out.
