I've been thinking the same thing lately too.But then i think, what would i get, and i'd probably do the same things to my new car, so in the end i see no point really.
Going to the track is addictive, but it would be nice to see some more VLT's in the top 10 of Street Commodores Quarter Pounder S.A section tho.
I've been told my P.B should be in the next issue, they still got my 12.3 time in there.
I'm pretty confident i'll do an 11.0-11.2 on Sunday, weather permitting and still using BP Ultimate 98 fuel too.Would love to crack a high 10 on PUMP fuel, but realisticly C16 would have to be used.Safety purposes!!!
Time will tell.

Yep, that's me.I'm just hoping it doesn't rain on Sunday, not looking good though.

If there's a will, there's a way!!
Rodeo dumped with a set of 20" rims, and then the mods start with the engine.LOL

New P.b

I ran a new P.B yesterday, best time was an 11.3 @ 120mph.
another run was 121mph, but a little slower ET.Slowly getting there.Next time will be using front runners for sure, less weight.

I went along but didn't race.... just wanted to see what its all about. Think I'll get an intercooler sorted out first and a dyno tune. I was there till bout 1.30pm but only saw one VL and it was a green one, did you drag later in the day?

An intercooler would be a very wise investment!!
My 1st run was at 2pm, lined up for about half hour, the tractor was out, cleaning up all the oil that had been dropped all the way down the track.
I didn't even see a green VL.
next meet is on the 4th of July.

I know what you mean mate, houses will chew up a lot of cash.
My GF and i are currently building a new house, and funds are dropping fast.
If i dont crack a 10 by the august street meet, it will be put on hold for a while.I'm pretty confident i'll get there though, still using PUMP fuel.Will have made a few more changes by then.
Hope your back on the road soon mate,
PSI.
