Cameron Waters and his projects away from the track

Monster Energy Racing Supercars driver Cameron Waters will be busy this off season juggling not only his speedway activities with Chief Racing, but completing the build of his XB Coupe.

The lockdowns during the past couple of years has enabled many people to tackle projects of big and small magnitudes, but for Waters its no different with this mega build.

Waters doesn’t just sit by and watch the XB Coupe being assembled as he jumps on the tools, building his dream machine.

Purchased from a team sponsor in 2018, the COVID lockdowns accelerated the build of what was originally a 302 Fairmont T-bar automatic is now well underway.

It’s currently at Rides by Kam to receive fresh paint as the finishing touches are made to the powerplant, which was supposed to be the one used in his 2017 Sandown 500 victory, but it was found to be at the end of its life.

Former Tickford Racing engineer Jon Grove has built up an amazing engine featuring 745hp at 6800rpm from the small block Ford V8, a Dart SHP Windsor unit featuring a lot of Supercars technology inside.

Sending the power to the rear wheels is a six-speed Tremec Magnum gearbox and a nine-inch diff.

The fuel tank, exhaust, plus the brake and fuel lines have all been installed ensuring Waters has not much more to go to complete the XB Coupe. The only thing left is to paint it and Waters has asked on his socials what it should be?

And if he wasn’t having enough of projects like this, Waters has also started another one using a Ford XP Falcon.
