20b Turbo track car build (England)

We've been building a 20b track (and road legal) car for the last few months, thought I'd better share some build photos
for all 20b enthusiasts.


The build for K-II has commenced after Sundays run around Rockingham, here's just a few early pics.

Inspiration for the wheels... Team America... FDUK Yeah !!

for parts we didn't work on Kermy, I just finished off the fuel filler necks and firewall tubing.
