Rajabs just did a 9.2@162mph very good could see a good 8 sec pass later on in the day i was talking to ben as he was driving the car and said it felt very strong so he thinks 8.5 sec later on in the night and its only on 38psi must say sounded like a 747 taking off sounds crazy as well done boys and the driver ben.

mmm dont know about the Rajab race car.. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed.. second time I have seen it out now, and yeah.. pretty average.

That whole event was a waste of $30..IMO,

Where were you VLT boys at!! pfft

I'm glad I did'nt go then if you guys reckon it was a waste of $30.

So what was the event like, turnout in cars very low and big audience I'd imagine.

was an awesome racing event.. vl's are not the be all and end all of racing guys. (but it was dissapointing for a victorian event not to have a few more quick vlt's).

the only 3 i saw racing were :

rajab race car (ran 9.2's)
hamoud (ran 16.X then a 15.X)
rickym (ran mid 13's)

V8's might not be anyones cup of tea, but the trick and mansweto capri running consistant 7.9's from an n/a v8 in what is primarily a back halfed car is very impressive.

The dalton automotive rx7 ran 170 mph, and grant williams ran 174 in his probe too.

ALso a couple of 6.3 @ 220ish mph passes from zap was great. Side by side 6.3 and 6.8 passes and you guys werent impressed with the racing? I suppose there are race fans, then there are 'race' fans.

the day was alright, payed 20bux heeh GO THE FAMILY STYLEZ. hamoud mate, im disapointed, u need either aftermarket ecu, or better cooler piping, jspec piping has the same prob all the time.

the doorslammers were mental, ive neva heard anything so loud. burnouts were alright, drifting was pretty good, chasers 180 went bananas.

rajab racecar with Ben Viceconte racing it was a bit HEH with a 9.2run, id expect much more from something that mean.

all in all it was an alright day, next time there shud b more vls.

i pitty the fools that say it was a crap day... it was a great day! the door slammers man did they put on a show for everyone.. didnt you notice when they finish everyone was clapping etc etc thats what they were there for... i hope they bring back the top fuelers to calder they are great to watch!

its pretty funny how a drift spec 180sx was in the 12's and not even setup for 1/4 mile action..

great day so what if it cost you $30 bucks how much does it cost to go friday nights what $10 bucks less and you still sook over how crap it was just becuase there was not alot of VL turbos and other turbo cars and alot of V8's what do you think the nationals are about?
