HOT ROD TO RAT ROD: THE DRIFT ROD
The heart of the drift rod is a Saab B204 turbo charged engine mounted to a Vauxhall gearbox all mounted on poly bushes which connects to a Volvo axle via a custom prop shaft. The 204 engines can regularly handle 400 hp or more assuming it’s in good shape and has a rock solid tune. Designer of this hot rod Matt Urch, says that he made a custom 4 link kit for the Volvo 240 rear axle and added a bumper bar to the rear to give it a bit of shape at the back
The front suspension and steering is a mix of Ford Capri, MK 2 Escort and MG parts, and some custom made wishbones and extra lock tricks.
