Being a fabricator with all the tools needed to build what I like to call “BOB”, Anders himself, took his Evo I and did just that. He created BOB, a Blacked Out Beast. Being an enthusiast for over a decade Anders bought his first Evo, a III in 2006. Since owning that III, he always had plans to build the quickest 1/4mile Evo in Sweden. And so, I present you BOB.
This Evo I was bought with the EvoV-VI Widebody as you can see and being a little rough around the edges this was the perfect template for exactly what Anders had in store. So what exactly did Anders throw at it? Eight Hundred and Forty Four Wheel Ponies at 8500RPM but the impressive thing is she Revs to 9000. Being this setup is for Drag the power band has been shot up with the use of some Kelford Cams running 11.5mm of Valve Lift meaning more Revs equates to more power with its limitations of course.
Anders had some incredible goals when he begun this project and those goals simply pushed him further up the ladder of difficulty. With a mindset of 8seconds of the 1/4 Anders truly will have to push BOB to its limit but with the perfect shifts and all his supports at his side I know he will get there.
At the moment Anders uses this as a weekend track car with no realy goals to run in competition. He truly has a mindset for being the Fastest Evo in Sweden while still being but a self-built machine at his own shop. (www.flandersmotorsport.se) Working regularly on Evos he gained tons of experience on them and boy does it show!
This is the meaning of vehicle passion, setting yourself a goal and pursuing it. Never letting someone stop you even when things get tough simply continue to push and reach your goals. Because one day, you’ll get there.
