WE spent today at Canberra Institute of Technology, hanging out as the students, teachers, Phil Kerjean, various helpers and a couple of blokes called Farmtruck and AZN were busy thrashing on a ratty Chev C10.
The Street Outlaws stars are entered in the Last Chance Wildcard shootout at Street Machine Summernats 31, hoping to get a shot at one of the last three spots in next year's Burnout Masters competition. The truck only been in the country for three weeks and time is ticking!
Things are looking good though, with the fuel system plumbing all done and the wiring nearly there. When we left today, the truck was sitting on its wheels, but there are still a heap of little jobs to do. You can check out the specs here.
Getting the Skidtruck built in record time is one thing, the real challenge will be taking on 25 battle-proven burnout fiends from Australian and New Zealand for a spot in the Burnout Masters - as well as fellow yank, Cleetus McFarland.
