It’s been a busy few months for Jodey Irving and his hard-working team. Team boss Warwick Irving has continued to develop the SS/AA record-holding Camaro, despite the success the team had last season. At the Auckland Harley Davidson Spring Nationals recently held at Meremere Dragway, the car hit the track for the first time in its new guise, essentially a reworking of the existing 632ci nitrous-fed combination. The car has seen plenty of off-season changes, including an all-new rotating assembly built by Kerry Corbett. It also now has a sway bar created by Terry Bowden of Terry’s Chassis Shoppe fame, along with a new set of wheels with one-inch larger [33-inch] slicks. Add to this a change in diff ratio and you can see the team has been busy. With the trackside assistance of Australian nitrous guru, Mark Hayes, the car ran a new PB at the event of 7.23 at 191.48mph, despite the run being plagued by tyre shake. Once that issue has been dealt with, the goal of running six-second passes at 200mph should be well within reach.
