I didnt know who he was until I went up to the "driver's" (lol ) side window and said gday. He looked at my calaisturbo shirt and.....from there, the rest is history. Awesome sounding and looking machine. Can't wait until you throw her 400mts down the black tarmac with wheels in the air launch on the transbrake and slicks and get into the 10's (just under me would be nice thankyou.....a 10.81sec will be fast enough . Great work at powercruise Chris.

yeah a 10 would be nice ... but im pretty sure this could do better than 10.8

watch out!

I've noticed that I only really update this thread when my car is off the road... So in keeping with tradition, here's what's been happening lately:

blown 2 sets of tyres, balded my 18's, participated in some street and strip events with a pb of 11.7 on street tyres (18's), and enjoying it most weekends.

Monday night my supreme reliable 3spd decided 2nd gear was too much like hard work (again) and will not engage (epic fail - not happy). Meaning the band or pin has broken again and it is sitting back at the workshop now... Whilst it's there I am getting the stall loosened off a bit so i can get stuck into some big boost/rpm transbrake launches.

In the next couple of weeks I will invest in another 044, source some race fuel,some slicks/runners and another tune in preparation for my next attack at the strip. If i can secure the 10 I'll be officially announcing this project complete and will retire the car to street duties.

It's been a hell of a ride!
