We strongly suspect it was the people next to us who wouldn't move their car - We had the whole area, they moved there cause they didn't like their spot and told us to feck off when requested - we had to scrunch our cars up in a smaller area as a result - Security did stuff all to move them back to where they should have been. My car was right next to them as pictured.

Don't like seeing cars out and about? And chances are the good cars that you'd see doing sh*t at motorvation would be at powercruise as well lapping it up?

sure beats walking around and sitting in 45degree heat whilst having to cop an eyeful of near standard pieces of sh*t holdens/fords etc that have entered a "show".

either way, I love seeing cars do burnouts, crack external 'gate and "hooning". Best thing about motorvation is the snake pit that's for sure.

Time to bump this up considering its only a few weeks away. Spaceball has been accepted again. Entered the dyno, go to whoa, motorkarna and just about everything else except the burnout comp.

Well, "300bhp" isn't too much really, they came with about 280bhp from factory, and they come from factory with 'twin turbo', so by the sounds of it this FD RX7 is also standard.....no different to VS 6-bangers. Unless this RX7 is dumped on it's hole whilst offering a set of awesome rims with 'sick offset' - then yes I don't mind seeing this at a show.

The mazda was good enough to make auto salon earlier in the year. It's not over the top modified but is modified rims coilovers sterio blah blah... I think motorvation is biaist towards aussie muscle over jap import.

Ah okay.

In regards to the bias part...yeah we've known that for years

Then you look at the cars they give awards to, especially the more modern awards, wow.

But oh well, meh. Who cares. Thankfully I got work there this weekend and don't need to pay entry :/

Na mate not at MV im not, pads too small to control the vl with a turbo, if it was a 8 itd be 1 less thing to worry about but not prepared to risk smashing my car up. ill just smoke it on the supercruises =D

Yeah thats understandable, still would have been good to see you in the snake pit sticking it to all the v8s. Much respect to you mate you got a dope vl and you actually use it for what its supposed to do.

Fingers crossed this year my car makes it to the track without breaking.



I think the crowd is more redneck at mv then powercruise... I think it was either 2 or 3 years back there was a black/orange series 8 rx7, well anyways his car broke down and he was pushing it through pit paddock, anyways I saw bystanders throwing plastic bottles at him and swearing at him saying all sorts of nasty sh!t to him.

Now could you imagine if he won the burnout comp lol, it would be war.

agreed.

but no harm in hearing both

high HP RB motor with big turbo (especially with T51R, but can't say I've heard a car at motorvation with T51R whining away) and gate doing a skid = nice sound as well.

Worked today at motorvation....so much cooler than last year, that's for sure. Had a quick look around and I reckon the quality of modified 8's (older ones mostly) was quite good....didn't get to check out any snake pit action or drag strip action

what do you do at motorvation genki????

I was talking to a mate of mine who is involved in the running of motorvation and apperently after all the imports are phashed out they want to get rid of all the late model cars.. So it will basicly be a old skool muscle show. dont know if this will be true or not but thats the inside word.

---------- Post added 16-01-11 at 07:54 ----------
