My brother was there as well, run a 13.2@102mph is his mostly stock gti-r.

My house mate blew his box on his bluebird on the first run, only thing was it was a brand new straight cut box with less than 1000km on it. Think it will be going back under warantee. It blew the end of the box clean out.

Yeah, it was a pretty sus one. The gearset has a lifetime warantee up to 650hp, with no one really breaking one yet. The box build has a 30 day warantee which it didnt reach, so i think he has the right to do some arse kicking. His car is pretty stock, so there is no way it should be breaking that box. Biggest pain is getting it in and out of the car, its an engine out job.

Yeah that was the idea. He blew the first box driving lightly. The same make gearset has been in a few 10 second gti-r's (they share the same box as a sss), so I dont know why it died in a high 13 second car. The input shaft has some how forced the end of the box to crack off leaving a nice 10cm diameter hole with the end of the shaft visible. With a straight cut box there shouldnt be really be much force going that way at all.

how much more weight is the sss vs the gtir if it has alot more weight that would put more load on the box

Its about 150kg between the 2 cars. Not enough to break something rated to 650hp imo.

how are you all doing my name is matt white vl berlina na bottom end gear box and diff. my car was off the road for two weeks worked on it all day saturday rebuild a turbo got the car going at 7 45 and still went out and raced bit dissapointing to do with the vl turnout some nice other cars there though. was talking today to tim (rb30x) and we spoke about the idea of hiring the trace for a possible sunday meeting every one invited but that will be in the further down the track

"track" sorry its 200 or 250 or something like that from memory and it costs racers the same amount to race 22 this time of the year is the perfect time to do it the track has heat in it during the day so traction is good and the air is relatively cold compared to the rest of the year i am not sure if you can hire it out for a night meeting a meeting on thursday night would be mad

if people are interested some input would be nice to get the ball rolling it is run just like a normall street meet but you book when you want it held

stop sooking foney! If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.... or something like that. Incase you haven't noticed nothing with cars ever goes smoothly, including when cars are and aren't ready. I was late to the drags because I was watching matt tearing his hair out trying to get his car ready, and by the time it was, it was like 8ish. You could have stuck around at the drags for abit longer....
