Hey Guys

I'm hoping you can help us out, we are from oz and have bob a 100 series and trying to get the 42inch tyres to fit, just wanted to know if any one has done it before over there, any help would be great as we are trying to get the car ready for a comp.

Here is a pic of it




Motor mods are
its running garret turbo thats been heavily modified . running 24psi low boost and 30psi hi boost through a duel stage boost controller. all this hot air is being cooled by a pwr barrel water to air intercooler that has been custom installed. boost is already starting at 780rpm its so cool to hear at idle. yes the motor can handle this as the bottom end has been modded to handle it. not saying what or by whom!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! same company modified head to flow better and supplied a 1 off custom camshaft. we have 2 nos bottles putting 150hp in2 motor at moment (looking at changing this to 200hp just 4 tuff trucks (more power oh oh oh oh) working of micro switch - so when foot flat nos just keeps flowing till i back off!hope all this will give me enough power.

Any help be great

I don't have any answers for you, but you better get ready for some questions with a rig like that. What have you done the rest of the drivetrain to handle all that power and the big tires you plan to run? That rig looks awesome, and we're gonna need some more specs.

edit: It looks like you'd either have to cut the rear doors, or move the rear axel back to fit the 42's.

We did 39's on one and if you are going to use it in a comp, you better get some bigger axles :D

To fit the tires. Pretty much cut stuff out of the way until it fits. :D But it looks like you already did that.

PS, I love the bob and always wanted to do a 80 like that.

That is all good and well but, what is in the axles? Have you upgraded to chromoly axles or larger axles or anything like that?

I like what you did to the back end... The worst thing about the cruiser is the departure angle... sooo many times hung up at the back....
