Some Assembly required :


  jlH7M3Yl.png

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

28d18444.jpg

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

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

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_G3pvlh9fCc

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
