It has Hurst-Airheart brakes, and its 15 inch BBS wheels are 17" wide in the rear. A dog box and Ford nine inch rear delivers the power to the wheels. 6A is the IMSA GT 1973 to 1982 group. This year they had 46 cars in the group. The group features some fabulous cars: BMW M1 Procars and CSL Batmobiles, twin-turbo Porsche 935s, and Dekon Monzas. Not to mention some great drivers: Bruce Canepa in the very fast #12 Porsche, Ken Epsman in the Budweiser Dekon Monza, and this year Adam Carolla drove his Paul Newman zx300 turbo.
