  4. Discuss the 2019 OS drags here. Dig out those burnout tyres and come to Meremere on December 7th! Click here for more info:
  5. OLDSCHOOL.CO.NZ CLUB DRAG DAY - 2019 EDITION Location: Meremere Dragway Date: Saturday December 7th, 2019 Time: 8:00am Scruitineering 10:00am - 3:30pm Racing Cost: $80 entry fee. Same price as last year. CLICK HERE TO ENTER Photo by Mrs _Matt The event is open to all Oldschool or Retro cars and bikes. Special dispensations on this rule may be granted to members. We will be running the full timing system this year, the same as last year. The afternoon will consist of competitive DYO races but the electronic timing will be in use throughout the day. So you'll receive an ET and a trap speed at the end of each run as well as a printout of all your vital statistics including your reaction and 60 foot times. Exactly what you need to see where you could gain an extra tenth of a second in your Hillman Imp and drop it into the 22 second bracket. Rules, requirements and answers to some frequently asked questions: An Oldschool or retro car or bike running NO FASTER than an 11.0 second ET Pre 1990 vehicles take preference for entries but we will consider some vehicles that fall outside this category for oldschool members. ONE entry per vehicle. If you want to bring more than one vehicle then that is fine, but each vehicle will need to be paid for separately Registration and WoF, or for non-roadworthy vehicles an NZDRA tech inspection or MSNZ logbook A crash helmet, up to current standards Covered footwear All Rotary powered manual vehicles will need a scatter shield or approved bellhousing (with proof of approval). Automatic transmission equipped rotary powered vehicles running an ET of SLOWER than 10.0 seconds are exempt from this rule. Radiator overflow and secure battery Semi slicks are permitted, as are stripped interiors and open headers. No full slicks as the rules permit DOT rated tyres only. We are not running a prepped track. This pushes entry fees up by at leas twice the cost. Be careful. No passengers permitted No static burnouts on the track other than on the designated burnout area. Fire and clean up gear is provided by the track team, but if you cause a spill or require use of the extinguishers you will be expected to reimburse them for these costs No animals permitted on the track. No alcohol or drug consumption permitted on track, pits or staging area. Put the date in your calendar and and start preparing your vehicles (and yourselves) for the day! Please tell your friends with old vehicles that they're welcome to enter! We encourage new faces and cars at this event, just like at all oldschool events. Last year was a beauty so let's step it up again and make this one even better! If you have any questions or comments, please ask them in the DISCUSSION THREAD THE ENTRY FORM WILL BE LIVE SOON . Watch this space. Thanks, hope to see you all there!

    Wow, that looks really good!
  7. I've bought a couple of small bottles of CC recently... They're about the size of a large hip flask and are made of plastic. I'm going to have a few and fill them with my poison of choice before the ride. Having a 40oz in my backpack was hard work last year!

    My new radiator turned up on friday from @nick_m at Motorsport Fabrication Services in Christchurch. He made this to custom measurements with custom mount bosses, tags to attach ducting, angled inlet/outlets and a 12" fan mounted in place (not pictured). It's a really nice bit of kit! I highly recommend MFS if you're in need of a radiator or intercooler. We got to work mounting it this weekend. This is what we came up with: And with the radiator in place: The angle of the outlets worked out almost perfect: I think it's starting to look pretty good: .... Hmm, looks like it has angry eyes? Again, huge thanks to @Rhyscar for the fab work and extra brain. I wouldn't have achieved much without him. Next up for fab work is to figure out how to mount the oil cooler and to start thinking about ducting.... But for now it's back to sanding .

    Tube Notcher for old mate VG.

    I've seen this style used with some success in the past: I'm pretty sure the arbour is upside down in all of those pictures...
  12. Good meet . Well done to @Archetype for winning 4 FREE BURGERS in the Jalapeno eating competition!! It's amazing what a man will do for free burgers. Well done to @Zeubin for a respectable third place. And cars:
  13. This is tomorrow night. A couple of us will be taking small bikes. See you there!
  14. I might bring my FA50 as a backup bike. It'll do 80kph on the flat, but is geared pretty high so could be punishing up hills. It's got a 2 litre fuel tank, terrible lights and the brakes almost work.
  15. Sheeit, this is next week. This month is going fast! Next meet is Thursday July 18th at 7pm. See you at Burgerfuel! Here's the facebook event:
