The late Jim Latour of TEC built the turbo. While Dave Jones of 3R Racing was responsible for most of the modification and fabrication work, I'd also like to thank Jeremy, Darcy, and Sean for their expertise and help. Brendan Rudak of Apikol engineered the impossible emergency brake system for the rear Big Reds. Mike Pederson and Dave Dawson provided invaluable assistance and encouragement.
