What really pisses me off is all the hard work we put in to get it ready
It was running great, sounded awesome, was on track for some big power then knock knock

So next time it's running will be with the good motor and straight to the track chasing 10s or better

All jokes aside I'm sorry to hear that Troy, I was genuinely looking forward to seeing it in action. You seem to have the worst luck with cars. Maybe time for a new hobby!

Thx mate

Haha my Gf would love that!
She's sick of it
If I sold every bit of my car stuff, we would have a very decent house deposit

But I'm running a number b4 that

I was getting really excited about 2day
Had my front runners n qtp tyres ready to go, car all cleaned in and out then 4pm yesterday put a big downer on that

At least this time round it's getting a built motor to see what it's really capable of

Also can't believe it's spooling quicker than a smaller 76gts turbo with a smaller rear!

yep you have had a bad run, troy last time for power play you brought a new clutch the bolts were to long went straight into no 7 main bearing, stuffing the bearing and the crank ,and this time you silly sh-it not cleaning the pump before you installed it no more engine building for you mate l spent hrs helping you to make it happen again ,l was looking forward to going cruising
and it really suked that you didnt have all the bearings to do a quick rebuild on the other engine ohwell we'll get there

I'm excited about the new motor
Really see what this thing does
Might have to get u to have a chat with mark about the turbo to now the built engine is going in

I would prob have killed a motor at powerplay anyway
No oil cooler and it was pretty damn hot!

Hopefully have my pistons here this week then see if Paul can do all the machine work
Pete offered to come help if needed to
I think he pretty keen to see it at the track to

Haha thanks daz
Hopefully this motor will have it all sorted
All new parts, new oil pump ect
This swantko turbo seems a good thing but might be modding it slightly...

The 1 that smashed the barrier, was that the white vl? Seen it later without its front bar, banged up bonnet and smashed light

Yeah Graham's car is looking very tidy
Not sure on the piping off the turbo tho

Thanks for the link Vanstrein, wicked VLs. Grahams new car is a car that was for sale as a roller a little while back wasnt it. I remember seeing the pics and that Maroon colour with gold cage. Looks the part now.

Had a ball at powerplay.

Got in about 10 runs throughout the day with ease, then toasted some tyres in the huge burnout pad at night. Lots of fun!

vid of the VL hitting the barrier at powerplay
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w_LlHY_N794

and MYT16 vs 33ETA along the front straight

Also got video myself of 33ETA on the dyno doing 890rwhp. Will put it up once I get bothered to upload it.

Haha pretty even looks like grahams cars baggin em hard the whole straight, although I don't doubt Gorans was as well...

And Troy nothing compares to the 4 day event. And there should be a couple more VL's finished their builds by then probably run some numbers and hitting the track to leave a few niggas up the front straight and chop some gaylord hitorque cars haha

When's the 4day? September?

Mine hopefully won't be a dyno queen
I'm trying to set it up for the strip more than anything

Are many people going to the next 1 day?
If I miss that, I'll burn the damn thing!
