Hey Corran, my car is going sweet as. Im in the midst of getting the pod moved from infront of front tyre so i can then drive in the rain if need be, and getting extra muffler and stainless exh from cat back...the extra muffler is for the sleath approach. No noise means....no attention from the wrong ppl.

Got a mate doing a buildup from scratch on vl with rollcage, tailshaft loop etc to ANDRA approved specs....all in aide of doing a 10 sec pass. So if all of his gear is approved, then i will copy and then go racing for quicker times....maybe add c16 so i can go to the C16 Motec map i have. Hopefully deep 10's or better

As much as I do enjoy driving manuals around, nothing beats a KEAS gearbox and a nice converter for those extra hard launches and lightning quick gear changes. Go the glide Corran. My mate who is doing his buildup is going for a Keas glide. My Keas 4sp Jatco is handling it perfect plus on the street its good having 4 gears

easily becoming one of my favourite VLT's... love everything about it... classy looks without being over the top and more than enough grunt to back up its image... well done

been away from the internet due to working away now. theres the vids.

I sent the clutch back to jim berry and he really looked after me. it now has a nismo pressure plate and 4 puck friction plate- more clamping force.
Been trying to bed it in on my time off, but so far i've done 50km in 3 weeks. 950km to go.
Seems it attracts cops to it. never see any around in my wagon, then take nitron out.....

Looking forward to doing more skid in it, but for now i put a cooler and uni-chip computer on my calais wagon and it made 160kw on 10-11psi. + i had the diff rebuilt and centre strenghtened to 200ft-Ib. so thats the burnout bus lately.

new clutch is nearly bed in 1500km. been using the car nearly every day as problems with the wagon. but last night a whole heap of wiring smoke came up through the dash and the car cut out. had to be towed for 100km, rip off tow trucks too
So it's off to the local elec this week sometime and i'm borrowing a old laser to drive.
