Hey it is no question about that... Needs more boost though to get its 12.9 quarter time again but idk if I'll have time to get and fit a controller. Also rover has a new heart this year so no longer has a tired old 3.9 from a disco... Nice new 4.6 with cam hopefully the wof guy doesn't notice/ gives no cares :D

If you need a extra set of hands my mrs can help out if needed 

Thanks! I'll be making a call for volunteers soon, perhaps she could help out with handing out time slips?

Hi all. New to the forum, to NZ, and to racing here.

I'm just getting my car from Canada tech inspected for IHRA standards, getting the IHRA license... if those process in time, I will be there with the car. When is the latest I can register?

@TruenotchThank you! I spoke to Gary from Meremere, who gave me some info as well. I then spoke to an IHRA tech inspector, and printed of a copy of the IHRA Rulebook. I've got a few things to go over... like a secondary return spring to install. I'll be getting my IHRA license too, for Super Street.

@sheepers Absolutely! Have you ever met a Canadian that isn't friendly? If you have, they're from the USA. ;)

 

Does anyone have a helmet for sale?

@Mark_Fleming how do you know about G-Bodies? I’ve seen two or three ‘80s El Caminos, and one Buick Regal. They don’t seem to be very popular here. 
 

I’m in Swanson. You?

Thanks @Mark_Fleming ... I’ve owned 8 g-bodies in Canada over the years, and have done almost all the work on them myself. What do you have being built? Any pics?
