Motor in Wed night, start/sset timining thurs Morn

Leave for Taupo Thurs Arvo

FRIDAY FRIDAY gunna get down on FRIDAY!

and went past Dyno on way hm


dealing with an exhaust leek/ stripped thread/helicoils so slight potential for more

side-draughts are top of list but budget is way in the red - may have an option up my sleave

can see the OEM 1300 gearbox giving out next - might pay to check fluid levels as track was very noisy swapping cogs

edit : beated to it by the Mod who rang me on my cell fone which was taped to my cage to perform incar camera duties so I had to quickly learn to use hands free

so Wez/1vaknd's Taupo track day eh :P


mush manlove to Ray for the vid!

I have not watched full clip yet but manage to muscle in front of the Demio (my bad) then harras karmageddon's MX5 for the remainder, slick enhance my handling/braking but he manages to stay in front convincingly, ripple strips deal to the HP create a miss (leads fall of plugs/dizzy) and back off,

some pic's gleaned from other gc's fb/p-bucket accounts


My pic


Credit Ned I believe (looks similar to the rest of the set so i will be wrong)

Next 3 are http://www.lotsafyre.com (wicked 3 wheeling explains canvas on front right)




My self timed laps were 2:03 or 2;05

I'm claiming 3, my TT Legacy does 1:58's same track
