cheers car still needs tidying up but had it on the dyno at cruise for charity sydney and made alot less but im pretty sure it was spinning the tyres on the dyno, different to when we had 2 people in the back while tunning.

was a good cruise over 900 commo's

how can i get more traction next time any ideas, what about putting some cement bags in the boot lol.

Wider tyres, the widest you can buy/borrow/fit. And yeah a couple of bags of cement in the boot would help too.
