By Aiden Taylor, 13 Jun 2017 Drag Racing

Matt Brame's nitrous assisted small-block Chev-powered LH Torana SLR runs eights at Heathcote

LH Torana SLR Chev WHIPYA wide

MATT Brame’s WHIPYA LH Torana is one of the toughest genuinely street driven aspo Toranas in Victoria, and it’s a genuine SLR too. It runs a 417ci Little M block stuffed with all the fruit which Matt sprays with a dual-stage Nitrous Express system. The first 300 shot kit comes on straight out of the gate and the second 100 shot kit can be turned on with the press of a button. All up she puts down 865rwhp on pump E85 juice.

The Chev is backed up by an MDT Powerglide and nine-inch rear end that Mark Drew of Crusty Torana fame has tricked up. Before Matt brought the car up to Heathcote this weekend it had run a PB of 8.87 @ 159mph. Straight off the trailer, Matt set a new PB of 8.85 @ 160mph and then backed it up with an 8.72 @ 160mph.
