Does anyone know if it ended up being sold by that guy on trade me?

Well all he had to do was turn up the boost everything was there to handle and make 350 rwkw, but i would rebuild the motor before boost going above the 16 psi i had which made 286 rwkw the GT35/40 was only just starting to work If he went to around 20-22 psi he would easily go above what he wants.
Hope it goes well for him, hope to see it on the road again
Cheers Kris

Im not going to start on this topic I will say this once.......3 young people killed in a freak accident that were teens...ok tragic yes it is its not good at all BUT...
How many middle aged people are killed on the roads every year in accidents bear that in mind.

also there are drink drivers which tend to be middle aged people again...so im sorry but its not a 1 way street here...everyone over the whole is guilty of doing something silly....weather its doing burnouts in industrial estates.....speeding on the open road to pass etc.......driving drunk or under the influence of drugs etc so im sorry I wont accept the full point of the finger at street racers thats my piece

And here is a figure graphs to back up what I have said not being smart im just putting across my point

^^exactly right.....and ive seen some pretty irrisponsable "grown ups" around........just look at the age of some of the kids roaming the streets at nights or daytime example photo here seen in hastings......................



the sooner people stop narrowing in on the easy target of teens in cars the better.....take a look at themselves.....one can almost quite safely say more than 60 percent of them went angels in there youth!!!!!

As the older parents say "its not worth it aye" mmmmmmm where have I herd that line before lol that rings a bell






Remmember life is fun....your only young once....so party hard and have fun and hopefully you come out the other end shinning

like this idiot seen here hehe wounder who he is lol














They are just jeleous that the car scene wasnt that fun back in there day hehehe because they had things like this hehehehe

Does anyone else understand Aaron's chart or am I just too drunk? The first 2 columns make sense, but then there is alternatives for the same 2 years..

Anyway, according to the statistics, the safest choice of travel is to ride pillion on a bike, anyone feel like a ride? And after today it looks like I'm about to have spare gear, ****in' awesome Now I just need a bigger bike that doesn't feel like such a pig with the weight of 2 people on it..

Once you start it gets really addictive, you just want to go faster and quicker, I still got the bug, will build something later to chase numbers

That the great thing about DYO racing you dont have to be the fastest to win but the most consistant, I even got third at a meet and won $150 for doing 15 sec passes all day long

I've always been interested to do DYO but how does it actually work do you do a couple of runs first to get your time ?
