The Shannon's Javelin has gotten a lot of ink elsewhere on the forum.

Having said that...thanks for the link.

Gotta love our Aussie friends...

Unfortunately this car met a sticky end in one of the races later in the year.

Yes, pretty old news, he actually smashed it and it was written off at the last race of it's fisrt season. Still building the replacement last I heard, so he is back racing the old Falcon Sprint and currently leading the championship.

Thought I'd post this up since you can see the new Javelin in the works behind Richards in the video, even though there's really no mention of the car.  Still nice to see the project to rebuild/reconstruct is ongoing!

Thanks for posting that JAV74, that is the closest I've seen to an update in a very long time (trust me I've been actively looking).
 
Of course, if I had to describe that video with words, it would be just one: TEASE!
 
Better than nothing, however by looks of the car in the video, it looks like we won't be seeing the Javelin on the track till next season, as they only have one race left this season.
Nothing against the Falcon Sprint, but I would really love to see that Javelin back on the track instead.

The engine build for the Aussie jav is worth reading if you can find it.

It's a Dodge engine, isn't it?

Yes, but it's still an interesting build because of how the rules required it to be built.  The whole build of the Javelin 1.0 (since 2.0 is in the works) is actually a really neat read.  I have the magazine I ordered from Australia that talks about it at home.

Not knocking it. Just saying. I enjoy reading most all engine builds (except for another SBC). You always learn something. I'd love to read the article, especially about the body and suspension.
