I priced a Live Axle setup a couple of Years ago Spiro!

- It was a bargain at $15k to 20k......!

I won't be doing it!

Had a whole lot of stuff fixed on the Car last Week and am confident we will get a Track Day on Thursday with 'full power' at last!

- With the more progressive Tune!

The boys ran it up last Thursday and it went up to 420rwk without blinking!

- On a stinking hot, humid Day!

Went to Wakefield today with the Porsche guys!

Lots of fun Jokes about Taxi's an stuff, but ran 1 Min 9's all Day with a PB of 1 min 9.3!

Still got some Fuel surge onto the straight and out of the Fish Hook slowing the ol Barge down, but my Tuner reckons he knows what's happening and wil fix!

I will get some fresh Tyres and give the 8's a crack next time!

- Destroyed the old Steer Tyres ( Steel hanging out of them) and the Rear's have been heat cycled too many times!

It was a good fun Day!

Mr Wall's new Porche cycled around at .58 seconds all Day in 'practice'!

There's a fair bit more left in it yet Spiro!

A bit of tweaking by Con and lot of catch up by me, may yet get the best out of it!

A little Birdy in Warwick told me your a hard Driver mate!

- Had to go up a Week ago for a little TLC!

Went to the Anzac Day Circuit Club Day at Wakefield yesterday and got the '8'!

Would have gone better, but I had a 'long' Brake Pedal that caused me to brake 'much' earlier than normal!

I will have the Brakes looked at and have another go as soon as.

Interesting thing is my mate had a problem with his Nissan, so I let him have a session and he went out and ran a bunch of 9's, with a best of 9.15!

Bugger can drive anything....

I better get that 6, or he will make me look pretty ordinary!

Track was pretty slippery to, (Wet initially) with plenty of offs, including my first 360 on to the main straight (Bonus for my passenger at the time) and a bit of off Road work at the end of Turn one.

All in all a great Day was had by all!

Got a 1min 7secs out of the old Bucket of Bolts at Wakefield on Monday.

Track was as slippery as up until Lunchtime!

- -4 degrees will do it!

It will get a 6, but I ran out of Steer Tyres after Lunch!

- Steel hanging out of them after 2 Track Days!

- The best part of 2 Tonnes doesn't allow for good Tyre wear!

Iam that mate!

Half the fun is I have a few Die Hard mates who love it to and we just get out and have a go and then go and talk sh.. over a Beer after!

It's a lot of fun trailing your mates Evo thru the Fish Hook and watching his front left Wheel floating about 3-4 inches off the Deck the whole way thru and out of the Corner.

- We call it good management!

You gotta come down one Day Buff!

Might have to see if there is a track day around the time of the Snowies cruise, which you should attend BTW

Hopefully mate you can get down to Phillip Island as I reckon it would be a great track to drive.

So Nigel has now cracked in to the 1.07s at Wakefield :) I've been away for a while! That is setting a mighty target for a punter to aim at. Well done.
