Haha good on you Tim racing at mackay if you want to. The whole problem revolves around the fact that its a business run strip not a club run elected board run strip. Bob Jane couldn't successfully run a strip and he is a muti million dollar business man which you don't become be fluke !

Hey mate, that's mine. Shifted 2nd pretty hard on last run and broke battery box in the boot, which in turn tore the wire off my fuel pump relay

Well the LS1 VL project took a slight change of direction recently, picked up this gem of an SL for cheap as chips, still drives fine and all!





So I really don't know what todo with the Berlina from Matt, it's a genuine turbo from factory which is getting rare, but it needs a fair bit of work and I'll be raping a fair few parts from it i.e. rear disc setup..

Strip it for all it's worth Adam looks like you picked up an absolute bargain ! Don't forget the VLT/v8 brakes and booster/master setup in that car too. That Calais front will work once wired and the electric windows work too just could do with some new switches. Pretty sure if you wanted to fit them its remove the whole door spec tho but you would be able to sell all the motors and what not. I think if I remember too had a malpassi too.


On another note saw a nice yellow VLT today had a lower half Walky kit was rolling on down Palmerston street auto decent turbo came on hard ...

we should probs get this forum happening a bit more, coming into winter shortly and i'm hoping some people are keen to get their turbo cars out to the drags for what might be the last year of drag racing in Townsville?!?!?!?! who knows what will happen with threats of closing the track already hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Cheers to Rodney, who sold me his car trailer last weekend so that I can start getting this Torana out and about... Bought 4 litres of hammertone paint, some LED tail lights and making a few minor mods to suit but overall its the perfect little trailer for what I need :-)

So i've just gotta bleed the brakes on the rana, put the new wastegate on (should be bolt in, with no mods), tidy up a bit of wiring and maybe make a rear firewall and retune and then I'll be out there for a few passes with 400kw's+ so see what it can do. I'm hoping it's a handful to steer, looking forward to trying to keep it going straight...

So come on all you Townsville lads (and ex-Townsville lad for you Tim), lets hear where you're at and what you're up...

Dean

It'll be good too see your rig going with the new setup Deano. Nothing is new on my side of the fence. Sold the Vl and haven't really looked back. Just working flat out saving for a house deposit.

Hey guys. Not much news here. I put a new clutch in my car and took it to the Benaraby Auto fest but it was only 1/8th mile drags and there were no times so no use to me. Flogged every car I came up against though.

Minister of finance has approved bulk spending so the LS1 VL should be getting a move on very shortly.

Race meeting in Mackay at Palmyra this month, T&T on the Fri 16th an then the race meet on Sat 17th for anyone keen.

That's sick Tim!!! How does the new clutch feel? Did you get one of those techaus (i think that's the name) clutches? Are they new mags as well? Definitely an awesome car, have you thought about getting it in zoom mag or a dato mag if there is one???

Nearly finished wiring the new taillights into the trailer this arvo, another coat of paint and a bit more tidying and it should be ready for it's first trip out the drags, if only the Torana was as well... New wastegate should be here in the next week or so... Once I get it I should be able to do everything else in a weekend to get it ready :-)
