  1. The September meet will be a little different. Thanks to @Beaver and @macabre for the future of our monthly meets. Copy/paste of the first post:
  2. Nice! The results are basically as expected. Looks like a big tapered inlet has some potential? Cool to see the power climbing and staying level right up to 9k. We really need to get a Beams on that dyno... I’m curious to see the difference between 45-55mm on a 2L engine.
  3. The easiest way to post a video is to upload it to YouTube and copy the share link. Paste that into your post and the forum should do thit rest. Keep up the good work by the way! It’s coming along well.
  4. Come for pizza next month. Good meet y’all. Next month we’ll be at Mizoni Pizza on Maui St. Lock in September 17th.
  5. Nice work! Looks like the original engine was either a 2T or 2T-B pushrod engine. The 2TG was a twin cam. Either way, an F20C is definitely a good upgrade!
  6. How loud were the cones in person? I’m pretty surprised about that peak down low. It’s a considerable jump!
  7. Indeed I am. First post has been updated. Meet at burgerfuel Rptotuna on Thursday August 20th for burgers and Sharns. I wont be creating a Facebook event for this one, but feel free to invite any friends along.
  8. This video does a good job of showing those effects on a Honda B engine:
  9. We're going back into Level 2.... But a meet will still fit within the rules, right? How does everyone feel about going back to Burgerfuel on Thursday August 20th? I'm not going to advertise this publicly on Facebook (although I might create a private event) as it would be nice to make these more focused. The vision is more about a bunch of mates having sharns and less about a large collection of cars. Let me know what you think.

  11. My oil bottle jams under the seat where the standard oil reservoir used to sit and I use a measuring cup from bunnings to get the ratio right.
  12. Hey y'all, I'm really keen to get the word out there about this event, so if you're on Facebook, can you please share the event? Here's the link: If you're at a loss for things to say, here's a canned post .
  13. Woah, the 2020 edition will be the 8th annual OS drags! Ask your questions and set up grudge matches here. Here's a link to the event info:
  14. The 2020 drag day returns in December! Location: Meremere Dragway Date: Saturday December 12th, 2020 Time: 8:00am Scruitineering 10:00am - 3:30pm Racing Cost: $80 entry fee. Same price as last year. CLICK HERE TO ENTER Photos by @_Matt @MichaelJFox and @oldrx7 The event is open to all Oldschool or Retro cars and bikes. Special dispensations for modern cars 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 or send a PM to myself or @TimShadboltfan27.
  15. GN's don't make enough power for it to cause a problem.
  16. The 250 will fit in fine. @BLIZZO will probably still beat you over the Motu.
  17. @anglia4 - here's a listing for 2.75-18's:
  18. It was probably the most common tyre on last year's ride. I ran a 3" SR241 in the front and it was great.
  19. Ive got to buy some shipping steez and do a bit of admin, so will organised a packaging night when that sale sorted.
  20. I can confirm that Waikaremoana Holiday Park has cabins available if you call them directly. Booked a 5 bed fisherman's cabin for the 28th.
  21. Hey Hamilton crew. I'll need a hand packaging and addressing all the nats shirts that need to be sent away. Perhaps we should have a bit of a mid week meet up to sort this out sometime soon? @64valiant, @mark105, @Beaver, @Archetype, @Geophy, @Yowzer, @Zeubin, @WankBankA100, @flyingbrick
  22. Churr peeps. I'll give them a tingle tomorrow. Edit - Gizzy accom booked for @RUNAMUCK, @Beaver, @mark105 and myself.
  23. Thanks. Next question... Who has a spare bed or 5? looks like she's full!
