Fingers crossed mine will be back together next week, or mebbe the week after (depending on when I can grab those pins off you Andy! *curses* should just bit the bullet and bought the acl set off you. Bah)

Since last year, its been 4 months off the road, 6 months on, 2.5 months off.....talk about frustrating.

But my plans to go OS at the end of the yr have been put on hold, so now its time to spend some money on the car....finally get that suspension fixed, and get a bloody 3" exhaust......and get round to fitting that boost controller Ive had sitting under my wardrobe for the past 12 months! :S Bah...it'll get there. Being a poor uni bum sucks.

Good to hear everyone is suffering from lack of running vl's though! I'm not alone!

Cheers,
Steve.

My torana will hopefully be ready for a start tomorrow provided the haltech and wiring is all sorted. Its been off the road for 12 months now so it's been a long time coming! I will hopefully have pics up soon. Im hoping to run a 13.

When is the next exchaser cruise gonna be cause i reckon a few north queenslanders should head down, i know i wanna check out some of the mad vls from down that way and i've always wanted to do a road trip in my rana. So is there ne plans for another one or what?

that's cause you can't do anything on it yourself, and have to rely on other people to fix it...

hahahahahahaah AHAHAHAHHA that just made my day..... nice one osk :P
still.. think about all the possible scenarios of that night.. If cops had come. and there are 3 calais turbos parked and one stacked on a rounabout with 5 19-23 year olds helping it off the roundabout.. tell me it doesnt look sus !!
Or.
If cops had come.. grant just says, this ***in whore spun out in front of me on the roundabout... i had nowhere to go.. i jumped on the brakes and it went up the roundabout and got stuck.
Its still a bull**** story but at least it doesnt include the other people there who were there joining in the festivities.. who werent 'unlucky'.

Now stocky.. YES i do have the video footage.. but out of respect for out mate Grant.. i've refrained from posting it all over the internet.. and none one but myself, jay and my mate justin have seen it.

Anyhow.. this is how i like the QLD section.. nice CHEAP..calls.. hahhaa

my daily car has forgies , billet crank , carillo rods , i even went to the trouble of taking the welsh plugs out and welding up the holes in the block , i mean with all the torque my motor will produce , i really wouldnt want to twist the block on a hard launch , pop a welsh plug out and by the end of the run cook my motor coz theres no water in it.


oh and man , dont acid dip it - surely it will eat ur engine away , acids pretty harsh stuff.
