Feck. Wheelstand in the rain I really wanna see this. Also 1/8 mile is not appealing to me at all. Heathcote is the place it's alot more leanient it's well organized and the oppurtunity to camp for a two day event..

I've seen the actual and the post data logs of cars pulling wheels 2-3 hours after having a wet track, but you wouldn't have known there was any sarcasm in that would ya boss

Lol. 2-3 hrs is a fair bit of drying time. That's not exactly in the rain.

In the rain and 2-3 hours after rain aren't the same thing. It's text on the internet... sarcasm isn't always obvious.

It's 1/8th mile there isnt it?

They could. They'd just cancel it as everyone is about to turn up though.

The X275 and X315 guys do it but thats because they are running 180-200mph on a 1/8th..

Bad ass mofos

Anyway, I'll be wherever it is, even if it is in Darwin or Perth or wherever.

Less bickering ladies and gents. Lets hear interest not arguments. Im sure RB2GO will come where ever it may be. He made the effort to pay well in advance for the last event.

More opinions and interest?

Over the past few years there have been more and more tough vl's coming out of ppls garages. So personally I don't think there would be any probs getting the numbers up for next year.

In my opinion thats a pretty good idea, may attract a wider range of potential sponsors.

The last VLT nats were great considering how poor the weather was leading up to the event. Weather is always a gamble but maybe in future nats could take place during the warmer months around October - March. Daylight savings during this period would also be a benefit in my opinion.

I'll attend the event no matter where its held!
