Yep, still has stock shim set up, so know the cams must be under the shim under bucket threshold. From memory the cams are close to a rally grind? guy wanted mid range grunt.

Speaking of windy roads, I had a plan to make lots of repeaters for hand held radios, and position them along a strech of the Rotomas, have a person at each end of the length of road to let you know whats coming toward you, and then take turns racing up and down the road late at night, even found safe spots to turn round and everything, just cost of making repeaters was a bit high, as you needed so many to cover all the black spots, was even going to have a light to let you know if you had gone out of range for safety! Yes, I have way to much time on my hands at work.

Haha, chur, well I think you can do it with heaps of walkie talkies, just tape two together with the talk button held in on one of them, I think that works? The Rotomas is the perfect place for late night racing, nice windy hill road with no houses/drive ways/other roads coming onto it, would be kool to go for a hoon knowing nothings coming the other way.

Rotomas is an awesome bit of road, can stay pretty damp on some of the corners though!

Glad to see you got a new guard man. Still thinking about using a different diff ratio? I'll dig the van diff codes out if you want them.

Was good to put name to face at the trackday last weekend, but it's a pity neither of us had our cars there!

Yeh, I really should, aint even touched it in a good 4 or so months. I need to sell motorbike to get cash to pay for paint, as I spent paint money on hilux. Also, I have to do drainage work on lawn, so shed no longer floods, so I can work on car while not standing/lying in a lake. So its all the rains/monies fault.

Possibly buy them off you if they don't fit.

I'm sure I'll be needing something to hold slicks one day.

Also how much can I have those steel wheels for? :P

Ha, yeh if they dont want to play ball i'll slap them up for a good price. I was going to get 8's for the front, but imagined they would look a little underwhelming compared to the back.

Them fancy steels owe me $130, so something around there?
